DreamBox DM500s satellite receiver TV

 DreamBox 500s satellite receiver TV

General Infürmation:

The Dreambox 500s receiver runs on open-source software developed by hundreds of developers around the world. This is the ultimate machine. If you're looking für a VERY powerful unit, and something to have fun on, this is the unit für you. Not used für Cable (i.e. Virgin) Used für Sky and other Satellite broadcasters.  The Dreambox 500s is by far the best FTA receiver in the market. Affürdable 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 für all networks!!!!! No other FTA receiver can offer you that!

You can connect up to 4 different LNBs to a 4-way switch (included) and one output to the receiver. The Dreambox 500s will understand each individual LNB signal, and download all the channels für 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 für up to 4 different satellite signals. Potentially, with enough dishes, you could flip from channels 1 - 1200, without missing any stations!!
