There are two ways you can record with a dm500.

1. You can attach a NAS (Network Attached Storage) drive to the ethernet port on the dreambox. This is like an external hdd only it has an ethernet connection and has it's own ip address.

2. You can share a folder on your PC and record to this.

In both instances, you will need to create a mount on the dreambox to connect to the shared folder on the NAS or on the PC.

There are a few guides in the download section on doing this. You can also setup a mount to stream movies or mp3s from your PC or NAS to the dreambox.

There is also a basic guide here...

Have a search for mount or recording as it's been discussed loads of times. :)

Isn't that just a USB2 caddy?

I assume the one needed would have an ethernet port?
Also would that be plugged into a router along with the 500C?

Can you assign a static IP address to NAS drives or would it need to get one automatically from a DHCP server?

With the Naslite software it's static only.
The caddies I have seen give the option for either DHCP or Static.
