I am not totally sure but i believe its the same method as other receivers like the dm800, dm7020 etc, so you could use the manufacturer instructions with pics here- http://www.dream-multimedia-tv.de/dm800/eng_browser.php

The version listed for the dm600 only shows dreamup method- http://www.dream-multimedia-tv.de/dm600/ but thats not unusual as the dm7020 doesnt show the http method either, but its fine.

Perhaps you can follow the guide for the dm800 and reply with any difference you discover?

Thanks pinkhelmets, but previously there was a sticky that detailed how to do it via telnet.

The 600pvr doesnt have any buttons on the front save for the power button, so all you did was telnet in, enter a few commands and then visit the image upload page..

is this what you mean?
Telnet Commands

To flash an image using Telnet

This method will only work with a .img image file.
Rename the image file to backup.img
FTP the image file to the /tmp folder on the dreambox

cd /tmp && eraseall /dev/mtd/3 && cp backup.img /dev/mtd/3 && reboot

To telnet, click START > RUN and type Telnet ip.address.of.dreambox
A command window will appear, enter username root and password dreambox.

To backup an image using Telnet

cat /dev/mtd/3 > /tmp/backup.imgFTP to the box and navigate to the /tmp
Here you will find the backup.img file.

admin mods if thsi aint allowed feel free to delete

telnet into your dreambox and enter

Code:
mount /boot -o remount,rw
rm /boot/*
reboot
once its rebooted you can flash via webif and your fav internet browser :)

cheers

You use telnet to telnet into your DM600 and than type in the following command into your box.

telnet into your dreambox and enter

mount /boot -o remount,rw
rm /boot/*
reboot

once its rebooted you can flash via the browser by pointing it to where you have the image located.

It is a little bit like using the command prompt in Windows on your pc

On your computer do Start > Run > telnet 192.168.xxx.xxx where xxx.xxx would the ip address of your box.
That would then take into the command prompt on your dreambox and you would type in the rest of the commands.

putty doesnt just use telnet, yawn.

Some people have problems using the telnet client bundled with windows. Putty is a very well known and reliable alternative.

did i say it just used telnet? Off the top of my head I know it does SSH (Which is what I mainly use it for), Telnet and Serial. Probably a few more I've missed.
