    Few questions about buggy dreambox 500s

    OK, so I've been having problems with this dm since i've bought it...
    It appears that it's a bad clone...So, on with my questions:
    1) I've put a new SW on it, works perfectly but why is the transponder time not correct (on the same channel which had the correct time with the previous sw)?

    2) I have a paid cline subscription to a private server, and the image on DigiTV Croatia is freezing a lot often...Like I'm watching something, and for about a minute (maybe less) the image freezes for about a half minute, then it continues, and the same process will repeat over and over again. I just can't watch any channels :\ (BTW - the ECM time after the frozen image have unfrozen is crazy - about 5.001, and then sits around 1.756)
    This is only with DigiTV - while on the other packages the ECM time is very low - like 0.056 or 0.100 (so that's around 10-5 ms, cuz I have a cable internet which is connected with fiber optics)

    Why does it lag so much? Is it because of the DREAMBOX or THE SERVER? I think that he doesn't have the digiTV card, and he's redirecting me to a free server...because when I speedtest.net my internet - a ping with 176 is only from Macedonia to Washington...in germany I have 30-40ms (while playing counter strike)

    3) Which is the best sw for a dreambox clone? Or that depends on the quality of the DM clone?

    Thanks in advance

    answer to question 1: you may need to change timezone, go to setup>system> timezone

    question2: it could be a bad server or it could be slow internet, in my experience torrent uploads within the network can cause dreambox to freeze.

    question3: not sure, I own dm800 clone. its perfect

      1) Changed the timezone, restarted enigma - same thing... Done it several times too

      2) No way man ...My internet isn't slow... torrents: 4.5mb/s download; 3.5mb/s upload


      Regular sites - 2mb/s download, 1mb/s upload

      I thought that maybe was the solution (the torren uploads) but, with my PC turned off it's still the same prob :\

        wow your internet if faster than mine, I only get 8Meg and I live in the UK.

        EDIT: I would suggest you that you try other server to rule out server problem, just request lots of free test clines.

          I have one from satlover (the free ones - server three) and one from a other free server, but my dreambox keeps getting the address from my paid one :\

          By request lots of free test clines you mean I should search or I should request (post a request) just for a test?
          I would test one by one, there many premium servers online offering free test cline. use ******. I would have posted link but its against forums rules.

            Re: Few questions about buggy dreambox 500s

            you can try to add this to your cline no { 0:0:3, 1802:0:2 }
            the last number are hop 2 you can also try with 1
            if there are digitv in hop 1 or 2
            or change 1802 to 1880
            i am not sure which provider you tries to see

              I can change that? Isn't that what the server gives to me and its interchangeable ?
              My paid cline is {0:0:2}, but in digiTV hops are 1

              Im trying to see digiTV on Thor (0.8W and 1W)

                Re: Few questions about buggy dreambox 500s

                then u write no { 0:0:2, 1802:0:1 }
                cos it can be that there are a card in hop 2 there are unstable
                and if u use more then 1 cline
                like your paid server
                and 1 from here
                cccam vill always try to connect to the 1 with fastest ping time
                also if its unstable

                  also if its unstable
                  I have 3 paid clines...And one from satlover's forum
                  But one of the paid clines is always active, others are almost never active...
                  The satlover's forum cline has a big ping time (and as I can see, the server is in Germany, my ping to Germany is somewhere about 30-40-50...but in ECM time shows like I have 160, 270....) and I don't know why is that...

                  OK so I'll try to add that to my cline and write here what i've done...

                  Also, could this be a bad clone of the dreambox because channels freeze?

                    Re: Few questions about buggy dreambox 500s

                    i don't think that it has anything to do with the db clone
                    it is server related
                    so if i was u don't use the free cline together whit a paid 1

                      Can I add that 1802:0:1 to the free cline of satlover?
                      I've added the 1802:0:1 to the paid server though...

                          Try an image that has "maxvar" in the title. The majorirty, if not all non original 500's have reduced memory. The maxvar versions of images remove a lot of functions that most users don't use or will never need, and in doing so free up the box.

                          Just search do a search for 500 maxvar and you'll find a few answers

                            So, nevermind if it's gemini, nabilo or any other?

                            I think my image is maxvar, how can I see that? (btw I have free space in dreambox 50% )

                            With the { 0:0:3, 1802:0:2 } I have no lags nor freezes (my paid line is not 0:0:3 but it's 0:0:2...is that better or I should change that?)

                              Hi edin4o,

                              Re: image installed.

                              Normaly its shown using the remote: Main menu, then (4)information, then about.

                              It will also have a splash screen at boot with the image name

                              Try Open_Pli_maxvar which should be somewhere here:

                              _http://www.pli-images.org/modules/file_downloads/file_downloads.php
