Looks like a kit to install a HDD + Interface in the the DM500, pictures show a DM500S but there's no technical reasons why it won't work in the DM500C aswell.

Next TV generation with Dream

New Dreamboxes at IFA with
plug & play tuner
Lünen, 4. August 2005. Dream, the leading manufacturer of Linux-based Set-Top-Boxes, presents at the Internationale Funkausstellung in Berlin the new generation of Dreamboxes. Thanks to the plug & play-tuner for digital satellite-, cable-, and antennas reception they provide a maximum of flexibility.
For the interested public Dream introduces for the first time the DM 7025 at the IFA. Beside an enhanced hardware (300 MHz processor, 128 MB DDR RAM, 32 MB flash) the DM 7025 has two pluggable Tuner (plug & play). Due to the twin-tuner and PVR-technology you are able to watch a program while recording another one on the hard disk, which can be provided upon request.

Newly made is also the DM 500 PVR. The smallest Linux-receiver in the world is now equipped with pluggable plug & play single tuner either for DVB-S, -C, and –T. On top of that the PVR-box is featured with a standard 2,5-inch hard disk and hence, becomes most probably the smallest Linux-based hard disk receiver worldwide.
Also the DM 5620 becomes a successor. The DM 6000 has a single-lined, graphic display and can be equipped with a hard disk just like the 7000 series. It also has a pluggable single-tuner and like all other Dreamboxes a 10/100 Mbit compatible Ehternet interface.

We welcome at the IFA hall2.1, booth 230. We look forward to meeting you.

A little kit to modify exisiting boxes would also be something we may be able to expect, seems daft for DM not to do it.

Somewhere here
just had a look in mine and there is no ide connector nor anything that looks like it can be connected to.....

so it looks like we will have to wait for the new one to come out...

Still waiting for my db to arrive. But I have a network hard disk it just plugs directly into the router no ip address just some software on the computer so it can see it. Could not this work if plugged directly into the db with the software loaded in to the db?
