paswoord resetten van dreambox

Published by:

Als je wachtwoord van je dreambox (door iemand) is veranderd, kan je het op deze manier misschien resetten. ‘k Vond dit op een forum… Niet getest!!

1) Installeer TuxBox Commander plugin (gele button in PLI)

2) Verander de directory naar Edit /var/etc/passwd (type 4: “Edit”)

3) Verwijder het gecodeerde paswoord.

3.1) In de file /etc/passwd is de lijn:
root:0:0:root:/root:/bin/sh of iets als
root:EIfidfjeSAEFKEOlasdf5ewr3rWEW:0:0:root:/root:/bin/sh

3.2) Het paswoord veld is de x of de gecodeerde lijn EIfidfjeSAEFKEOlasdf5ewr3rWEW

3.3) Verwijder de x of de gehele lijn. De lijn wordt nu:
root::0:0:root:/root:/bin/sh

4) Save en druk op exit

5) Telnet naar je DB met root user zonder paswoord.

6) Verander/maak meteen een nieuw root paswoord aan.

Dat is alles ..

Start de Commander .

Ga omlaag,( Knop onder Ok)

Var – ok -etc -ok-passwd-ok

Removed Service on dreambox solved

Published by:

I was having that annoying problem where services would suddenly be replaced by removed service in the settings list. As usual, the INTERNET wasn’t very helpful. There goes a saying: between all the proposed solutions, the simplest one is mostly the right one. And that’s the case here. So.. over to the solution then…

PS: This works on the ENIGMA release 4.3.0, FP 1.06, dreambox DM7000. If you know how to do it on other images, comment please.

On your dreambox go to the expert setup (remote: menu – setup – expert setup) and scroll down to service name update and select it. ( the language is confusing.. it says: service name update, but if selected it is actually disabled. )

service name update

How to convert wmv or avi to mpg2 for dreambox

Published by:

You want to transform a avi-file (or any other format) to mpeg2 or mpg2 so you can watch it on your dreambox 7000s.

You need Mencoder. (the encoder is part of the Mplayer download)

Don’t let it scare you because it’s commandline. Just install it in a directory and read a little through the documentation. The basics are simple. The software contains a player (which we don’t need) and the encoder. All codecs and stuff is inside, so no need to install them.

The program lends itself to all kinds of coding.

Now for converting the avi to mpeg2 go to a DOS-box and there use this commandline: commandline.txt

Replace the input filename movie_in.avi by the file you start from, i.e. mymovie.avi
Replace the output movie_out.mpg with the file you’ll transcoding to, like movie.mpg

Any questions? Comment 🙂
