6. Edit the channel list

What is a bouquet?

A bouquet can be thought of something like a folder. Every channel equals a page in this

folder and the pages are sorted into categories.

This way you can create a bouquet called “Kids”, for example, under which you “file” all

children’s stations. Another example would be to create a bouquet called “Sports” where you

put all sports channels. This way you can create several topic related bouquets.

Note

You can only delete channels in the favorites view!

You cannot delete the channels in the “All” view. The use of the “All” view is to keep an

internal list of all available stations. If you start a new channel search the resu lt would be

saved to the “All” view for example. You favorites bouquet will stay untouched. This way you

can easily add newly found channels from the “”All” list to your favorites bouquet. To see how

it is done refer to section 6.2.

Prerequisites:

>- PC with an internet browser such as Firefox or den Internet Explorer

>- Current software for your Dreambox available at www.dream-multimedia-tv.de

>- 1 Netzwork cable

>- DHCP-Server

>- 1 serial null modem cable (only if no DHCP-Server available)

You need a current software image. Such an image has the ending *.NFI for your OMBOO. It

is not possible to install a different image type such as *.IMG files! Please do not try, it will

not work.

You either need a DHCP-Server in your Network and a working boot loader or a serial null

modem cable and a terminal program such as Hypertermina1.

Additionally you need a internet browser and a network cable. If you plan on connecting your

Dreambox directly to your PC you will need a crossover networ1< cable. If you plan on

connection your Dreambox to your Hub/Switch/Router you will need a regu lar patch cable.

To be able to install a new software image on your Dreambox your Dreambox will need an

undamaged 2nd Stage Loader, which is usually the case.

The next steps refer to a network with a running DHCP-Server. If this is not the case you will

need to use the serial null modem cable to manually set the IP address of your Dreambox.

Turn your Dreambox. Use the Shutdown/Standby Menu and select “Deep Standby”. Pull the

power plug afterwards. The Standby mode is not enough!

1. Press the Power-Button on the front cover of your Dreambox and keep it pushed down.

Plug the power cord back in now.

2. You should now see the ….. STOP· …. text in the display. You can now let go of the

Power-Button. Your Dreambox is in “Waiting-Mode”.

3. You should now see an IP address being displayed above the ••• STOP ….. text. If you still

see “DHCP” your Dreambox is still looking for the DHCP-Server. Please wait a little bit

longer.

- 94-

———————-

User Manual Dreambox OM 800 HD PVR

If after waiting some time you still don’t see an IP address, please check the settings of your

DHCP-Server and the network cable connections. If this does not help you have to set the IP

address manually using the serial console.

Open the internet browser, such as Firefor or Internet Explorer on your PC.

1. Enter the IP address in the following manner in the address field of your browser:

”http://IP-Address”

(Replace ~ IP-Address” with the actuallP address displayed in the OLEO Display of your

Dreambox.)

In our example the IP address your have to enter would look like this:

http://192.16B.O.104

2. Select the “firmware upgrade” link in the displayed webpage.

You can select the desired software image on the next page. To do so press the “Search … ” button

and select the image you have previously downloaded. Keep in mind that only * .nfi files will worle

Refra in from installing an *.img image!

After you have selected your desired software image click on the “FLASH!” button and wait till the

progress bar reached the 100% mark.

Note: The progress bar only works if you have activated Javascript in your browser’s settings. Please

check beforehand that you have done so.

After you have successfully finished flashing the new sofuvare image onto your Dreambox press the
