    Default How to stream dreambox to PC properly (no hassles)



    Read the steps below. For it work successfully for me, I had to downgrade my gemini to version 3.4.0 Var max and it worked flawlessly.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------

    DreamStreamer v1.54



    DreamStreamer is an application used to show and record streams from the Dreambox.
    I did this program to be able to do good recordings from my DM500.
    It is tested with DM500/DM7000/DM7200 on XP and Vista.
    It is based on VLC activeX control.

    Installation
    1. Install VLC. (Version >= 0.8.6b)
    Download VLC from this site: Install VLC according to standard-settings
    for path and others (default).

    2. DM 500 issues.
    To get a good streaming from DM 500 you must do this:

    Use Gemini 3.4 MAX VAR (don't use any other).
    Check "Use modified driver" in the setup dialog. (snakehand modified driver)
    Set Delay stream start >= 6000 in the setup dialog.

    3. Install DreamStreamer.
    Install DreamStreamer by running DreamStreamer Setup.exe

    4. Start DreamStreamer.
    The first time you start the program a pop-up prompting you for the IP-address,
    user name and password to the dreambox.
    Check use modified driver if you are connecting to a DM500. You also have to fill
    in the path where you want to store recorded program. (Mount directory)

    5. Enjoy!

    well i dunno.. ngrab works for some people, some people it doesnt. For me, when I set a record, it tends to break randomly.

    And ngrab is a recording program, not a viewing program.

    xmediagrabber on the other hand works flawlessly because it has its own built in recording engine that detects breaks but continues to record anyway.
