How to Set Up a Dreambox


Dreambox is a type of receiver used for cable and satellite television primarily used in European countries. The German Dreambox uses Linux software and comes with a PowerPC processor and Ethernet port. Before a Dreambox is ready to use for watching all of the various television channels available through cable or satellite, you must first complete the setup process.

  • Choose the "PAL" TV system using the left and right arrows on the remote to move through the choices on the "TV System Wizard" screen. Then, choose "Save."

  • Select the language you would like your system to use, "English" or "Deutsch." Move through the choices by using the arrow on the remote and press "OK."

  • Browse the list of time zone preferences and choose your time zone in the "Time Zone Setup" screen. Press "Save" after you make your choice.

  • Press the "Exit" button on the remote until you get to the next screen.

  • Push the "Blue" button on the remote control and go into "Extras/Settings."

  • Choose "Satellites.xml Loader" and select "Asia & South Pacific." Then press "OK" on the remote.

  • Scroll down the menu, click on "Optus C1 at (156.OE)" and press "Exit" one time.

  • Press the "Green" button on the remote control. Select "Yes" to reboot your Dreambox.

  • Press "Menu" on the remote and go to "Setup." Select "Service Searching" and "Next." Open "Satellite Configuration," select the "Non-Standard User Defined Configuration," "OptusD1 (156.OE)," click on "LNB 0" and exit by pressing "Exit" on the remote just once.

  • Click on "Manual Transponder Scan" and place a check mark beside "Lock," "Sync" and "Network Search." Then, press the "Green" button on the remote control.

  • Press "OK" when the scan is complete and select "No" when it asks to scan again. Exit this screen by pressing "Exit" on the remote.

  • Press the remote's blue button and go to "Addons." Select "Download and Install" and click on "CAM." Download "CCcam-2.0.4" by clicking on it and selecting "Yes" to allow the addon to be installed.
