Common Issues


This section gives you answers to questions that will arise sooner or later when working with your Dreambox.


I have installed all plug-ins I need on to the image. Can I do a backup of the entire image?

Yes, you can. In case you have already adapted your favorite image to your needs it can be time consuming to reinstall all the plug-ins in case you have to newly flash your Dreambox.

What we need:
- plug-in FlashBackup downloaded and installed onto your Dreambox
- working internet connection for your Dreambox and PC
- Patience is essential here ;-) Backing up your image can take up to 3 minutes! Do not interrupt the process!

My Dreambox uses a wrong (system) time for recordings!

This is a known issue when you are watching TV-channels in a different time zone from that of your home country. I noticed that especially after watching Arabsat at 26 East the system time is almost sure to be wrong when returning to a less exotic satellite like Astra.

Please install the following add-on to fix that problem (You will find a guide to installing an add-on here):

- Pauli Neutrino Keymap

You will be able to set the system time manually after installing it.
