My dreambox 800hd combined with a Multitenne dish can’t wake up on a HD channel, will give a “Tune failed” message.
So every time I had to switch to a SD channel and switch back to the HD channel to get an image.
I created a little script that can do the switch for you, I use the BVN channel as standby channel so if the box wakes up i BVN is on. You can set your own startup channel in three steps as described in the script.
- Put zapscript.sh on your dreambox somewhere (i.e. your root home dir)
- Enter “chmod 755 zapscript.sh”
- Start script “./zapscript.sh”
- Optional but recommended add to startup: enter “ln -s /home/root/zapscript.sh /etc/rcS.d/S80zapscript.sh” the script will run if the box get booted after a power down or reboot.

For about a year ago I bought a Osco Chainoiler system. This is a semi-automatic chainoiler for all motor cycles and saves you a lot of time with chain lubrication. Just pull the systems button after each 300km and you are ready.
Just mount the reservoir at an easy to reach place (while riding with +/- 30km/h).
For the R6 (2001) I prefer the right side and I did mount it at the brake oil reservoir.

I only used it so far with some shoutcast radio station, but what if you have a radio station that’s not listed on the shoutcast list?
Answer: CREATE A PLAYLIST!
Just create a playlist file in m3u format.
It should look something like this:
Store your .m3u file in one of your Twonky media folders and re-scan your folders.
I needed some feedback on my dijit.form.combox and a queryreadstore to fetch the list.
If you press the dropdown button it would be nice to display a loading image.
Nice website to create your loading image: ajaxload.info

I had some problems with my setup and the harmony remote control. If I turn my dm800 + AV receiver (Yamaha RX-V463) + Tv (samsung) on I had a disturbing picture and bad sound!
The problem is that you have to change the order of the power on sequence!
What worked for me was TV -> AV receiver -> Dreambox.
Very strange problem!
Another problem, the exit button is not working properly yet..
