DM8000 equipment

  • Hello All,


    I've ordered DM8000 and I've got few questions to people who receive it already.


    1) I ordered basic version without DVD and HDD but I got them. So my question: Are there (in DM8000) all necessary cords that I need to plug to DVD and HDD or should I buy them too?


    2) What kind of fan should I buy? I mean what parameters (Voltage, Cuurent consumption, kind of plug) ?


    3) Is it possible to plug permanently USB STICK into USB socket on DM8000 main board inside of DM8000? (place where in beta testers DM8000 is USB to SATA converter?

  • 1) They should be in the box
    2) Usually, you don't need a fan. The box is designed to work without one, you only need one if the box is installed in a REALLY tight shelf or else.
    3) You should use the USB2SATA-converter in your box, too. It's necessery for the DVD-Drive to work correctly.

    1) Yes they are in box.
    3) My colleague connect it directly to serial ata controller (between HDD and DVD rack) and said that it works correctly.
    2) I've got tight shelf so can You give me some specification? I don't want to connect not right one and do some short cut


    By the way I noticed that there is no instruction (in user guide) how to plug DVD, HDD, and fan.
    I think it's good idea to make such kind of material for dummies.

    small tipp: you should use a slot-in dvd-rom

    Dreambox 7000s, 7025ss, 600s, 800s, 8000ss, Hotbird 13°, Astra 19,2°, Astra 23,5°

  • Das Samsung SN-T083A ist für die DM8000 recht beliebt.

    Weisst Du zufällig, wo der Unterschied zum SN-S083 besteht? Was bedeutet slot in? Vom Format sehen beide identisch aus.


    Vielen Dank, Thomas

  • ...bei slot-in hat das Laufwerk vorn nur einen Schlitz, in den die CD/DVD eingezogen wird.
    Bei den anderen Typen wird die Schublade harausgefahren.


    In die DM8000 müsste beides passen, Hauptsache Slim.
