I know, that's the problem... There (apparently) was also something called
a DBox2 from a different vendor that went bankrupt...

I am actually considering hacking away and build something to allow MythTV
to control a Dreambox, but first I'd have to get satellite... ;-)
And for that I am still trying to figure out what to get first though! ;-)
Maybe I'll even be able to find time to create a tuner module for MythTV,
similar to the HDHomeRun or DBox2 modules, to access a DreamBox...
Biggest issues I have are (in no particular order): lack of freely
available money and lack of freely available time... :-(
PC-Chips M863G Geode - NVidia 440 - Hauppauge PVR250
Ubuntu 6.10 (Edgy Eft) - XFCE - MythTV 0.20 - Xine
Panasonic NV-VHD1 VCR/DVD player case modded to fit it all in...
