Thread: Why is it so difficult to install a line in an Eagle receiver?


Forum: Dreambox DM500 & DM518 Support

Why is it so difficult to install a CCcam line into one of these receivers. I can using the remote install lines in S9, TM5402, Spiderbox 5000, 7000 and 9000 in about two minutes. DM500 and Eagle I have NEVER got a line into and believe my I have tried. Does anyone have a guide in English that has a step by step approach to doing this? Can any one help?

    Thing is I could most probably get a Linux receiver up and running on a server in 8 minutes too,its really just horses for courses,

    but the above post was in jest m8

    ALSO remember

    your password will be (eagle) without the brackets , if its an eagle image on it m8..........not (root) like most other images

    use DCC, var/etc

    simple as takin a p#ss
    If I've helped, please tip the scales

    Thanks BOD, I have no problems running any of the installation programmes, it's just this stupid unnecessary Linux that gives me a headache. Who ever wrote it needs standing against a wall.

    Theres no actual Linux involved in any of the setup though...Yes linux is the underlying Operating system that the reciever runs on.

    But you never have to enter a single linux command, or use a linux Command line interface. it's just basic GUI navigation which is Enigma and FTP drag and drop a file...So just basic PC skills and a bit of basic networking knowledge. All the tools needed DreamUP, DreamBoxEdit etc..all run under window...

    The networking bit you'll still need with a closed source reciever to get the box connected to your LAN.

    You probably need to but an initial bit of effort in, it will all seem easy after that...and you;ll wonder why you ever bothered with limited functionality closed source recievers.

    Well I put the extra effort in and my eagle is now a total write off.
    Well in one way I'm glad as it means I'll never have to spend a lot of time reading and attempting to get it working again.
    It also means I'll not be tempted to buy another receiver of this nature, note I am not blaming the type of receiver simply the amount of knowledge required to get it operational.
    It's been a good learning curve and the lesson I've learned is this type of receiver is not for me.

    I'm tempted to do that BUT I can be pig headed and dont enjoy being beaten.
    A few months ago I bricked up my garage and installed a window, this room when I've cleared it will become a small recording studio and workshop.
    I will have a go at restoring this receiver then and YES like an idiot I will have another go at getting it working, if I fail again your more than welcome to it, providing I dont take a hammer to it first.
    I know that hammering it wont get it working but it will do wonders for me!!

    Re: Why is it so difficult to install a line in an Eagle receiver?

    Well well well I cant believe it but I've done it at last (hammer not needed just Vallium and Whisky and just a little Sloe Vodka).

    A big thanks to all that offered me help especially M.D.T. who really went out of his way to be helpful.
    The biggest part of my problem was ME and a smaller part down to if not a misleading guide (not from this forum I must add) then one that allowed misinterpretation of the instructions.
    Again thanks to all that tried to help.

    well done jimmy it is simple to those who know and a bast*rd if the file is not there yes you do need to know ftp there are many ways to do it.
    remember my first attempts on tm 9100 and could not for love nor money find cccam config or where the keys went i read and read and i was doing it rightf rom what i was reading from the info i had got from elsewhere.
    then i came to this site read how to do things and that one sentence of if you have no ccam config just use notepad and put your details in save call cccam config and ftp to box was all that was needed so after that it worked.
    so we all get there in the end and help each other and there is one hell of a lot of knowledgeable and helpfull people on this site youself included jimmy
    got there in the end and you will be like me happy to achieve something learned by mistakes but didn't give up and got there
    once you install tuxbox mate you can do it using the remote
    i also am one of those wierdos who prefer using the remote instead of the pc
    well done mate
