"This is the Dreambox, a Linux powered price winning digital television receiver. While it may not look like much at first, wait till you hear what special features it supports (some unofficially) .

"Dream multimedia, the german company selling these devices sells several different Linux powered satellite and digital cable television receivers.

"The software running on the Dreambox was originally developed for the DBox2 a device distributed by KirchMedia for their pay TV services.

The current dreambox models are still based on this hardware design."
