Got myself a DM500 to start off down this road. With a lot of help from the info on this Forum up and running. Familiarized myself with tools such as Dreamup, DCC,Config Creator. Then bump done a channel rescan and Dm got stuck on logo screen. Ok so i think reinstall image no joy Dreamup would not have it kept going off saying aborted by user. Right time for a search on Forum sure enough answer is here. Instead of using Ver 220.127.116.11 use Vers 18.104.22.168. Thanks again and thanks to big-hol for Dreamup link. Now shall have a go at CS all new to me. Guess first step is to find some sought of server. Many thanks guys for all the help and info on this Forum.
