How To Configure New Channel View List In Dreambox With Help Button

You may have hundreds of channels in your Dreambox satellite decoder and browsing them one by one may not be as friendly as you wish. Other than creating bouquets or favourite channels, there are actually some tweaks that you can try to make channel browsing much easier than usual. If you wonder how it works, the tweak actually utilizes the Help button on your remote control to display channel lists in full view, allowing faster access and switching to respective channels as desired.

Follow below steps to make the tweak on your Dreambox decoder:
1.Access your Dreambox decoder from PC using FTP.
2.Go to /share/tuxbox/enigma/resources/ and look for rcdm5xxx.xml file.
3.Make a local copy to PC by dragging the file to your local directory.
4.Open the file using wordpad and browse to below syntax:
key name=”video” code=”27″ picture=”key.11″
key name=”help” code=”52″ picture=”key.23″

5.Change/swap the code for video and help with “52″ and “27″ respectively (as below):
key name=”video” code=”52″ picture=”key.11″
key name=”help” code=”27″ picture=”key.23″

How to Update an Azbox FTA Receiver or dreambox FTA receiver

How to Update an Azbox FTA Receiver

Azbox FTA receivers act as a part of your satellite system to acquire free-to-air or FTA programming. FTA receivers, including Azbox models, require updates to the software to remain in touch with the various satellites. Unlike other FTA technology, the built-in Ethernet port allows Azbox receivers to quickly scan for updates and install them directly to the receiver. Connect your receiver to your router or modem with an Ethernet cable to discover new updates and transfer them immediately to your system.

Instructions
1
Plug one end of the Ethernet cable into the “Ethernet” port on the rear of the receiver and insert the other end to an Ethernet port on your router or modem.

2
Turn on the Azbox receiver and press the “Home” button on the remote control. Use the arrow keys on the remote to select the “Settings” option and press “OK.”

 
3.Highlight the “Information” option and press “OK.” Select the “Firmware Upgrade” entry and press “OK” to search for updates.

4
Highlight the newest update in the list and press “OK.” The receiver will automatically download the update and install it to the receiver.
