    Dreambox 500-s only free channels

    Hi Everyone,

    Over a year ago I purchased a dreambox 500-s, and recieved all channels including movies and sports.

    A few weeks ago these channels stopped working and now I only get the free channels. Is there something I need to do like cccam, install new image, if so which is the best?

    I am technically ok, so given some pointers should be able to do something.

    Thanks very much.

    your year share has ran out m8 . u need a new one or ask the place u got the box from to turn on again

    http://192.168.1.102:16001/servers
    put this in the browser and change the ip address to the one on your dreambox . in setup settings and network is where u will find the ip of the box
    and tell use wot it says

    Thanks smirnoff_rules.

    Do I hook up the dreambox to my laptop, in order to put the IP address in to the browser or will I be able to open a browser window in the dream box using my remote control?

    Thanks

    That's fine when I put the IP address into a browser, it asks for the username and password, where do I look for these?

    Thanks.

    Thanks.
    the person you got it off has changed the username and password by the looks of it.

    default is.

    username root
    password dreambox

    but i think you will have to contact who you got it off to get the user and password as you cant access the box without it!

    Is there any other alternative, as I can't locate the person who I bought it off, he had a satellite shop but he's closed it down. I found out too late.

    Incidently, how much did he charge for the dreambox and the years sub?

    But back to the issue here, what you will need to do, easiest option is to reflash your dreambox using a null modem cable, you can find one on ebay for a quid or so.
    The reflash isnt very difficult. Once you got the null modem cable let us know and i will post step by step instruction on how to do it.

    Secondly, you will need someone to give you a share or you set up a share and share the cost between friends.
