    You need to set up a mount on the dreambox which points to a shared folder on your PC.

    First of all, ftp to the box, go to /var/mnt and create a folder called 'movies'.

    Use the web interface to set up the mount instead of the remote and menus.

    Enter the ip address of your dreambox into your browser.
    Username: root
    Password: dreambox

    Go to CONFIG > MOUNT MANAGER

    Enter in the details. (see pic)

    Make sure the folder on your pc is shared.

    Click mount and after about 10 secs you should see a green tick, that's the mount successful.

    On the dreambox, press MENU > File Mode > root > var > mnt > movies

    You should see the contents of the shared folder on your PC.

    Oh...and the dreambox will only play MPEG movies or variations of MPEG. It won't play avi, divx, xvid, etc.

    Hope this helps.

    Should work for any dreambox.

    If you want to stream avi files, etc. you will need to use VLC to transcode the files to mpeg then steam to your dreambox. I'll leave yous to search for that bit as I don't know off the top of my head.

    Instead of /var it might be /usr, depending on the file structure.

    on the dm800 and dm7025 which are enigma2 the web interface is different
    im sure the mount manager is in the image via the remote on the tv
    image dependant
    i have not got a dm800 but on my dm7025 it should be done that way
    as the images on these two boxes i think are very similar
    some one correct me if im wrong
    dm800-s=1.1 m triax motorised dish=titanium twin lnb

    hi all,
    I can record what is displayed on my DM500 on my PC using mFaraj Dreambox Viewer and everything is ok. But I tried several times to see what was recorded on my PC back to my DB but never worked.
    Please can anyone explain this step by step for a newbie like me

    Thanks all.
