    Dm800 remote access

    well,
    I have set up port forwarding to access my dm800 outside my lan and all works as far as i can access dreambox webcontrol page..
    Problem is when i go to stream a channel, i download stream.m3u, vlc starts but then i get the following error:

    The following errors occured, more details might be available in message window

    Unable to open 'http://****.homedns.org:8001/1:0:1:18AE:7FD:2:11A0000:0:0:0:'

    (****) being part of my dyndns address

    Am i doing something wrong or do i have to configure vlc on remote pc or dreambox settings?

    Just uninstalled vlc 0.8.6 and in stalled 0.9.9 and i get the following error message when i try to stream.
    Your input can't be opened:
    VLC is unable to open the MRL 'http://*****.homedns.org:8001/1:0:1:18AE:7FD:2:11A0000:0:0:0:'. Check the log for details.

    Re: Dm800 remote access

    have you setup port forwarding for ports vlc needs open? there is a few strange ones i cant remember off hand. also it aint going to great of a picture due to bandwidth.

    To get the best you want to setup a pc at home which connects to the reciever and does the encoding, you then connect to that pc remotely.
