Hi,
Is it possible to network another Dreambox to my existing Dreambox and receive the same channels on both boxes ?

CCCAM and a number of other Dreambox apps allow you to share service cards around a network or over the internet. When set up right at both ends of the share they can access the same encrypted services.

Obviously there are numerous legal implications of this, for instance using it for Sky is clearly breaking the law. Using it for subscription services for packages that are not sold in this country is more of a grey area, if you cannot buy a service legally here then are you breaking the law by hacking it?

Bit more opinion on this at dedicated sat sites:

Foreign TV - Legal - Satellite TV support forum & Digital TV support forum.

Every receiver will need to be connected to the satellite you want to watch on it. This can be done via loop through, but to my knowledge this would mean only one receiver on at a time.

In my home rewiring for example, I am running a UK Sat feed to every room as I may want to put Freesat or Sky in any of them in the future. I will then run a loop from my main receiver in the lounge to all the other boxes for my motorised dish incase I want to watch foreign channels elsewhere at some point :thumbsup:

hi siber,

I documented about cccam, now i'm wondering. I put two quad lnb with disecq (one for sky and one for freesat for ex). in first room dm800hd with cccam installed and connected through a router to dm500 in the second room.
:confused:Will I have to install cccam on second box(dm500)? Will it work if second also connect directly to the antenna through a second disecq or loop is enough for them to work simultaneously? :confused:

thanks

You have to run CCCAM on all boxes. To my knoledge a loopthrough will only work for one box being run at a time, seperate feeds is always best.

Correct ,, what you could do is set up the 2nd box with an ip adress ,, where you share the same CCAM on both boxes ,, so no need to have diffrente ccam set up on every box.
