LOADING NEW IMAGES TO DREAMBOX .

There  are actually two ways of loading new image files in your dreambox 7000s . The point you have to take in mind though is how 

often do you intend to use one of those tools ... But if we just take a look at the pace of new images presented, -almost one new image

within two weeks- then i guess you have to use the most fast one ... So lets take a look first at the faster tool the DreamUpLAN .

It's a very simple tool using  your dreambox's 100 MBit full duplex Ethernet Interface . You actually press two or three buttons and you've got you job done ! 

We assume that you already have configured your network settings , so you place in the top box area the address of  your dreambox which in my case if you take a look was 100.100.100.1  , and that you are connected to your dreambox via a cross cable  ( pc directly to dreambox ) or thru a local network via a hub box .

Press button QUICK FLASH and  go for the file directory where you have saved your images . Select the one you want to upload to dreambox and press open .

As soon as you press "open" the DreamUpLan will attempt to connect to your dreambox , and if network is configured correctly the procedure will start , and you'll get the next messages on DreamUpLan . 

At this point , pressing the OK button erases completely the software you used to have in your dreambox .

Erasing starts after the OK button .

When erasing  is complete , programing of the new image is followed . Usually one minute time will be more than enough for the DreamUpLan to finish.

If nothing went wrong your new s/w is allready in the flashrom .

Exit DreamUpLan and reboot your dreambox . When first logo screen of your new s/w appears dont forget to press and hold left upper button of Dreamboxe's front panel until "flash erase" appears in front display .
