Hi, ive been given an old linux satalite box called a dreambox SUN800HD SE, I've turned it on and it works, but I have no idea if I can use it and get the firmware updated. Only thing ive managed to do is rescan the box and I just get duplicated channels which I can't organise

 

I've added some pictures of the about page, and the firmware update page, it appears it already has some versions?

SUN800HD SE is not a real Dreambox but a clone of a Dreambox so be carefull when you try a firmware for genuine Dreamboxes.

Ahh, that probably answers why nothing came up when I was googling it, is there anything specific I should be looking for?

You have to check which kind of simcard you have inside the box. If it is not A8P or genuine, then genuine OpenPLI software cannot be used. Genuine OpenPLI software can be found in de download section.

 

If the simcard is not A8P or genuine, then you have to google specific for software for the kind of simcard you have inside the box.

 

When you use unofficial 'OpenPLI based' software, you will not get support for it on this forum.

And that is why I close this topic. ;)


Mijn schotel is een T90 met 10 LNB's. Daarnaast voor de fun nog een draaibaar systeem met een Triax TD 78.

Dreamboxen heb ik niet meer. Verder nog een een VU+ duo2 met 500Gb harddisk + een VU+ Uno, Zero, Solo 4K, Ultimo 4K, Zero 4K, Uno 4Kse. + ook nog een Xtrend ET4000. Daarnaast heb ik ook nog diverse andere modellen w.o. een Formuler F4, ET8500, ET7500, Mut@nt 2400HD, Xsarius Fusion HD se en verder nog wel het e.e.a. waarmee op verzoek vanalles wordt getest. Iemand moet het tenslotte doen. ;) :)

Voor centrale opslag van media gebruik ik een Qnap 219P met tweemaal 2 Tb harddisks.

Als ik alles al wist hoefde ik ook niets te vragen. If I had all the knowledge I had no questions at all.
