the third link is the one I understand best (I like step by step guides!!!!). Have downloaded DreamUp in preparation and would like to know which is the best/most appropriate image/firmware to use....thanks again.

I would suggest one of the official DMM Experimental images (first link in my previous post). They work very fine and stable and can always get updated online via TV GUI if there is something new.

BTW: For flashing I would suggest the Browser Method (2nd link). Dreamup is only if box is really messed up and the bootloader isn't working anymore. But you should first try it via webinterface, it's easy and quick

Hi Schnappi, think my box IS really messed up so try the third option ie DreamUp. I have started the process but nothing showing in the progress bar so far.....well at least the Dreambox has not switched itself off yet.....but nothing sems to be happening. The oled shows STOP and dchp... and the light is blinking red. Is this right or have i done something wrong?
