    Default DM500T dreambox

    long story but i have been handed one of these, it says DM500c on the box but opening it up it seems its for terrestrial, never even knew dreambox made one of these, anyway can this be converted for cable or satelite or shall i just bin it,
    on the back its got an ant in, and its deffo not for cable or sky

    shame tho as its brand spanking new never been opened

    You should be able to convert to sat by changing the tuner.

    I bought a sat tuner on ebay for my dm800. Although it was a couple of years ago.


    And... It's probably cheaper to buy a new DM500.

    If IRC all dm500 tuners are soldered to the box and are a pain in the dick to get out . Better of buying a 2nd hand box.
