Mac & Dreambox
The Dreambox is a fantastic toy.
It looks like a Satellite decoder, but it is a linux machine based on a PPC processor, with a 10/100 ethernet, web based remote control, http stream, and an Hard Disk bay that allows the user to record satellite stream directly in its original digital format.

It is not an object ready out-of-the-box, needs a firmware and several settings.
In these pages we collect information about Dreambox related management and tasks using Mac OS X.
