How to guide: Setting up the Dreambox DM500S from scratch

A picture guide on how to setup the Dreambox DM500S from start to finish, always useful for new users.

after you install Your GUI.. This is GP / Gemini Project.

Onnce its installed you have to set to NTSC

here is how to do that.

If your receiver has a rolling screen is because is setup using pal image(Europe) to stop it just press right arrow on remote until you see it stop (NTSC) save and exit..

Then you will see a pic like this.

Im going to try to go in order and take into attention the other pics.
This only took me all of 15 minutes and this is for DISH PRO If you need the channel list and the Gemini Project Image Let me know.

Then one you hit save you go to this screen

make sure you hit NO DISEqc.. B.c You channel list will do this and you set this part up later.. So you can just select NO and hit exit.

then you should see.

Get used to this setting.. You can get here by pressing Menu then 6

Go here

then communication set up.. You have to make sure you know the Derambox IP.

Then you can use this settings.

Make sure you uncheck DHCP b.c your IP can change all the time and then it gets you all messed up.
I mean if you want to leave DHCP you can. but I dont.

Remember to SAVE or hit Green button to save.

Now to set up your Dish PRO 500 110 119
Go here.

Make sure you have channel list in after you set your IP. With pics above.

Like this.

You get a program called dreamedit and you have to know the IP and port
b.c it load the channel via ethernet from you PC

now back to here again.

you want NO STANDARD USER DEFINED CONFIGURATION

make it look like this

You will only see 1 satellite and you will have to press NEW to get a second one and then you can set it up just like above

BOTH LNB0 and LNB1 should look like this at this part.

next this is important. and these numbers are for dish pro or standards

make sure

Now make sure with DCC you have Rqcam82 insalled and right click over it and make sure its 755

then do this.

Go to BLUE PANEL

here is how you get DCC
Remember the IP and port you put in.
the password is always
root
dreambox

Now we need rqcamd make sure when you donwload rqcamd you get the correct version for the GUI you are running then unzip it. you want rqcamd-1.28-GEMINI-MIPS.tar.gz DO NOT UNZIP FROM THERE leave it in that .taz.gz format.

You want to go to FTP tmp

once is transferred right click it and select attributes/OK/755/OK/save and exit

now go to here in your dreambox

then you should see this

go to manual install

Notice the RQCAM you just installed

PRESS OK and you will see it install.

Then you will see this.

Now you have to enable it so you dont see command interface when you start up.
So do this. Start and enable cam….

Now if you did what the pics above on how to move over channel list and do this you should be fine.

Then go to CNN and let it roll should take less than 5 minutes. also you can go to your Web URL if you use the IP I gave you it will be

Try again.. Dont give up.

if you go to this IP on you PC you should see your dreambox EPG

looks like this.

Quote:
http://192.168.0.192
ill put a pic on next page.. only so many pics allowed.

also some routers are 192.168.1.1 and other are 192.168.0.1
so you have to find out.. b.c if you router is a .0.1 then you ip will have to be
192.168.0.192 or w.e you want last digits to be.

Then you can do all kinds of stuff

however you will need to join a P/S

then simply overwrite the rqcam in var/keys

b.c Rqcamd dont work for N3.
but if you get this far.. you have come a long way.

and its lots better then reading this for some people.
Thats what I had to use… Now the text below helps alot
but the pics help also.
this might help to get started from scratch:
first need image 109 i believe load that with dreamup then load i would recomend dsm then go in and set up you’re ip address
ip= dreambox,nameserver = router,gateway = computer.hook dreambox to computer open dcc and if you don’t have it set up right you can do a search through dcc and find what the address are click on search under dreambox then search under router
if the numbers come up go and place them in communication set up .network is 255,255,255,0 dhcp leave open don’t click on it
, check enable network .then it depends how many dishes you have say four just for arguments sake go to sat config pick standard north american conf,110 first row lnb-0,-hilo,h/v.click on 0
lof/l=09750
lof/h/vert=11250
lof/h-horiz=1250
threshold=11700
then go to next page
toneburst =none
diseqcmode=version 1.1
diseqcperimeter=A/A
diseqc repeats = none
then press save
it should of went back to previous page press yellow button you should have another space to fill now click left space and pick 119,then pick lnb 1 then click on number one now you can set this one up as follows.
lof/l=09750
lof/h/vert=11250
lof/h-horiz=11250
threshold=11700
then go to next page
toneburst =none
diseqcmode=version 1.1
diseqcperimeter=A/B
diseqc repeats = none
then press save
it should of went back to previous page press yellow button you should have another space to fill now click left space and pick 91,then pick lnb 2 then click on number one now you can set this one up as follows.
lof/l=09750
lof/h/vert=11250
lof/h-horiz=11250
threshold=11700
then go to next page
toneburst =none
diseqcmode=version 1.1
diseqcperimeter=A/C
diseqc repeats = none
then press save
it should of went back to previous page press yellow button you should have another space to fill now click left space and pick 82,then pick lnb 3 then click on number one now you can set this one up as follows.
lof/l=09750
lof/h/vert=11250
lof/h-horiz=11250
threshold=11700
then go to next page
toneburst =none
diseqcmode=version 1.1
diseqcperimeter=A/D
diseqc repeats = none
then press save
you should have you’re dishes set up if you only have two then only do two or one then just do the first one.
now find a chanel list of as many sats as you have programed load it with dream box edit first put it into local disk c make sure you have it in a folder if it’s not then make a folder for it in local disk c.
now open dreamboxedit click on open ,double click on c\ you should see you chanellist folder ,doubleclick on it then click on open you should see chanels on dreamboxedit now click ftp they should go to you’re dreambox then click on reload setting on dreambox or reboot the box rebooting would probable be better this time.now you should see you’re signal strength .

    Hi ive bought this dreambox. Im wondering is it possible to have hdb blocked for this type of modem? Cause when I tried plucking in at my place it only shows *thank you for choosing dream* and there will be no channel as when I press any nums it will pop up as no *epg available* but when I tried using is at other home that uses dream too it is able to come out fully.. so im just wondering is it possible that my block is being blocked from this usage..
