How to install a new Image

username: root
password: None by default, sometimes "dreambox" is expected
Ich bin heute mal sehr faul und verweise auf die sehr gut bebilderte Anleitung von Dream Multimedia:

Trotzdem in Kurzform:

(1.) Drücke die Taste an der Frontblende und halte diese gedrückt.
(2.) Stecke den Netzstecker ein
(3.) Die Dreambox erhält nun die nächst freie DHCP IP Adresse von deinem Router.
(4.) Öffne einen Browser auf Ihrem PC.
(5.) Gib die IP-Adresse in das Adressfeld des Browsers "http://192.168.x.x" ein.
(6.) Drücke auf die Auswahl "firmware upgrade" der angezeigten Seite im Browser. Bitte achten Sie auf die Dateiendung nfi, dass überspielen anderer Images ist nicht möglich (KEINE img)!
(7.) Reboote deine Box und mache die Grundeinstellungen

Why not XBMC on the dreambox?

Because of the weak hardware?

Conax, a worldwide leader in secure and innovative encryption solutions, has been commissioned by the Digital Cable Group (DCG) to deploy the Conax CAS7 encryption system in DCG’s networks. DCG is the second largest cable network in Switzerland. With the help of Conax, DCG is protecting its digital programming content using “simulcryption”, applying two encryption systems simultaneously.

Feb 14, 2007

Conax will provide system integration and first-level support in Switzerland in cooperation with its partner company Adrenio. Some 350,000 households connected to the DCG cable networks in central and western Switzerland, the Zurich area, and northern Switzerland will now be able to receive digital cable television using a common-interface receiver and a Conax CI module, or with a Conax-embedded receiver.

opkg instead of old ipkg
"The development for this project has discontinued. Many projects which formerly used ipkg have adopted the ipkg fork opkg for a replacement."

Enigma1 was the first operating system for the dreambox, it is coming
to the end of its lifetime and although bug fixes are being done, not
much new development is taking place. It's been in use for over 6 years.
Enigma2 was introduced with the Dreambox 7025. It is the new operating system, used on the following boxtypes:
Dreambox 7025(+),800 und 8000


N => Nagra
B => Betacrypt
