The Dreambox 500S (Satellite Receiver) Specifications and General Info:
Dreambox 500S (DM500S) is the smallest Linux satellite TV receiver, with 1 x Smartcard-Reader

Unlike most poor manufactured versions of the Dreambox,
our exclusive box has excellent quality hardwareNo Nonsense!

General Information

The Dreambox 500S, DM500S receiver runs on open-source software developed by hundreds of developers around the world. This is the ultimate machine. If you're looking for a VERY powerful unit, and something to have fun on, this is the unit for you. Not used for Cable (i.e. Virgin) Used for Sky and other Satellite broadcasters.  The Dreambox 500S is by far the best FTA receiver in the market. Affordable in comparison to the DM7000 but with all the fixings. This FTA box is in a class of it's own.  Imagine full EPG functionality for all networks!!!!! No other FTA receiver can offer you that!

You can connect up to 4 different LNBs to a 4-way switch (not included) and one output to the receiver. The Dreambox 500 will understand each individual LNB signal, and download all the channels for that satellite. For instance, if one LNB were pointing as Dish Network, you would set up LNB 1 to download all 300 DishNet stations (PPV, sports, everything). This would populate channels 1 - 300 on the system.

If LNB 2 were pointing at another satellite company, you would then be able to set up LNB 2 to download channels 301 - 600. This can continue for up to 4 different satellite signals. Potentially, with enough dishes, you could flip from channels 1 - 1200, without missing any stations!!
