    I'm planning to buy DreamBox DM 8000 HD PVR, how many Channels will I get?

    Hi Guys,

    I'm very newbie to DreamBox. I'm located in Austria and currently get Astra sat with my old receiver. I'm planning to buy DreamBox DM 8000 HD PVR which cost around 1000€

    My questios are thse:

    1- If I buy DM 8000 HD PVR how many Satellites would I be able to get and how many Channels?

    2-Do I have to subscribe then to individual paid channels, where?

    How it works if I want to get all channels?

    I would really appreciate some information and i apologize for the naive nature of my question.

    thanks.

    Hi

    You don't have to choose a dm8000 to get all channels.
    If you want to cross a river, don't buy a car, better is a boat

    No way to receive all channels because some are encrypted with no hacked encryption, some will change encryption to stop cardsharing.

    Only one sat !!!(astra)
    Better is to buy a dm800 & keeping money to buy motorised dish...
    (see kingofsat or lyngsat)

    No money trouble!!!
    You can buy dm8000 & lot of smardcard readers & lot of pay-tv subscriptions. $$$$$$$
    Where to susbcribe!!! internet & google is your best friend

    Do cardsharing !!!
    Yes it's better to exchange your pay tv card with the others peers.

    Hi Laitram,

    Your comment was very helpful.

    What do you mean with "Only one sat !!!(astra)" ?

    I need to choose a provider, is it Astra good choice?...

    Hi

    I mean that there is a lot of sat in the sky to scan, to watch, to ear and
    a lonely sat pointing by your dish is poor.

    You can point to Hbird/astra by using dual LNB & many others with a motorised dish & get more channels in any language.

    That's why you can go on google to visit kingofsat or lyngsat sites

    Re: I'm planning to buy DreamBox DM 8000 HD PVR, how many Channels will I get?

    I'm learning a lot here, today was my first day. Thanks Laitram !

    I agree with you and that is what I want, to have access to more sats and more channels.

    At this point I have a question:

    To satart I assum I need to have a pay tv card, I mean some kind of legal subscription to be able then to share, exchange, etc, so:

    Which package / sattellite / and registrant do you suggest me to start with?

    This would be the sky provider for my country: http://www.sky.at/web/cms/de/abonnieren-preisinfos.jsp

    Which pack should I get? is sky fine? ... or can you provide a link where else to buy subscription?

    Thank you for your patience with my newbie question, i do appreciate it!

    Hi

    OK now we know that you want to use cardsharing.

    To do, you need to find peers to integrate ΰ existing network share.
    It's better to propose a pay-tv to exchange but not indispensable.
    (choose the subscription for YOU)

    Do you need HD channel & is your TV able too ?
    Then a dm 800 is ok & a clone cost ~300€ original ~450€

    Don't need HD to begin!!!
    Then a dm 500s is ok a clone cost ~65€ delay ~20 days
    an original 500+ cost ~190€

    What share plugin using!!!
    Cccam is good, gbox too but maybe you need to choose by peers...
    Ex I share with gbox, you share with cccam then we can not share together

    Why shou'd you be carefully!!!
    Because some pay-tv providers will change their encryption system to stop cardharing.

    I don't want members payd a lot to have fun only 2, 4, or 6 monthes

    Sky & csat are very active to disturb cardsharing...

    Earn your money dm500 + a good sky subscription for you (if cardsharing stop, subsc. is always ok).

    Sorry my bad english maybe explanations are not so complete but hope you're understand the reality of the battle. (Abba money, money, money)

    laitram your answers has helped me a LOT!

    I just purshased a new HD Sony TV and today my first Receiver DreamBox DM 800 S, so Im really excited.

    Now I'm looking for a subscription, please help me here:

    I live in Austria and the only thing available here is sky: http://www.sky.at/web/cms/de/abonnieren-preisinfos.jsp

    All that channels from Sky Austria are in German and I dont want German channels, I want languages like Spanish, Italian o English (mainly).

    My questions:

    1- Does SKY subscription card works with DreamBox DM 800 ? ...

    2- Can I buy a subscription OUT of my country ?.. What place do you suggest me to buy a subscription to some good Satellite ?

    3- What else accesorie or component do I need to buy?

    I just called Sky Uk and they told me I can not have Sky English(uk) in Austria. why????

    Please let me know
    Thanks a illion for your support.

    Re: I'm planning to buy DreamBox DM 8000 HD PVR, how many Channels will I get?

    HI

    1) I don't know please ask this question on german section http://www.satsupreme.com/forumdisplay.php?f=61
    Andrushenka is a very active & good guy

    2) Sometimes it's possible but usually you can not because there is copyright

    Sorry forgotten the third question...

    Except a rs232 female/female crossed cable
    Dm 800 include DVI to hdmi cable

    Then I think you don't need anything else or can buy it on supermarket...

    A USB stick may be a good choice 1 to 4 Go
    A HDD 2.5 inch that you can insert on DM (optionnal)
    A wifi dongle if you can't connect DM on wired network (if your router is wifi)

    Let we know... bye

    Re: I'm planning to buy DreamBox DM 8000 HD PVR, how many Channels will I get?

    I have just received the DreamBox 800, and soon should arrive my skycard with world+films pack. (and the other receiver provided by sky)

    Since I want to use the DreamBox instead of the sky receiver I have one question:

    People tell me that DreamBox won't read the SkyCard without Smargo Cardreader and Cccam specific line on config file,

    Should I buy Smargo Cardreader?

    do you know about that?

    Thank you for any advice...
