Dreambox

Recommended Posts

Total newbie here.

I have a dreambox 518S that has been 'Factory Reset'. A True Move size dish. All the cables.

Ideally I want to set it up to get FTA programmes for now as I get all the tv, sport and other stuff another way or in the pub.

I have looked at the web site for PLI Wiki and am no wiser.

Can someone please guide this newbie to set up this system so I can get it to work of FTA please. Also out of the seemingly hundreds of satellites out there, which ones should be added. I am in Pattaya.

Would I be better off getting the box to a shop and having them set it up?

I bow to those with greater knowledge than I :)

The PLi wiki was mostly written here in Thailand by us, and this is why under the satellite section it shows the most popular set ups for the satellites we use here in Thailand, all that assuming you have PLI installed on your clone box and a dish a bit bigger then a 75cm Truevisions dish else you are limited to only 5 Ku band satellites.

1. Satellite lists & Channels - http://www.lyngsat.com/asia.html every thing from 49e to 172e in most cases with a footprint on Thailand

2. Satellite set up in Open PLi -

(2)http://www.pli-images.org/modules/wiki/index.php?wakka=E1Multi

As a side note. DMM never made a model 518 although having said that the 518 are one of the better clones out there.

Thanks for the reply.

Whatever I am doing wrong, I must be doing it badly wrong LOL.

I have followed the links you gave and I do have enigma1 installed although factory reset.. Yet I cannot see any of the satellites listed on the Jsat page like Thaicom or NSS6 except for Intelsat 7/10. The best SNR I get is 59%. The satfind will not find anything. I tried 4 satellites set-ups using the LNB info on the links page and they all came up with zero too.

Maybe I ought to give up for now until I can find an installer locally.

You did re-align your antenna dish to the proper satellite every time? Maybe it currently is roughly aimed at intelsat 7/10, hence the little signal you get.

Normal procedure is to choose a satellite on your dreambox, and the align your dish for best result/SNR.

If the dreambox is hooked up to a network which also includes wifi, I just use may laptop right next to the dish (use the dreambox IP address and root as user plus dreambox as password).
