Hi

If im understanding you correctly your wanting to use the dreambox as a tuner in mythtv?

This is not really possible. The mythtv integration for dreambox is very old and is not being supported anymore.
Is it a Satellite dreambox? If so you might want to look at a DVB-S card to bring the signal in.

Regards

hello,
the only way is to connect the video/audio cable to a capture card. Then lmce is able to control the dreambox with ir and display the video on each MD!

With a user alias like that, it HAD to be Belgium... Even Liege I would say?   :-)

ok, ok it's off topic.

Just to justify my post in this thread, I also have a dreambox, and I also had to put it back into the cupboard and use a PCI DVB-S card instead :(
