Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
It's great, i'm using with céu sat, got all channels, payperview and more. Have an website that you can manage configs, channels, channels grid MPG. Its possible to watch channels trough network with VLC player. Its also possible to record the channel on a harddrive/folder shared on the network, I wasn't expecting that. Just awesome.
Cons:
It was my first time, I have advanced computer Knowledge, but it was very hard to configure. Internet have a lot of things to help but the excess of information make it more dificult.
Other:
WARNING, don't ever change firmware trough FTP, you can break it. It's needed to update Firmware, not optional. You must do it trough serial using dreambox tool 3.0, with a no-bomb img file (fw2 wont work at this step) After that, with the dreambox conected trough ethernet using dreambox tool on flash wizard menu, intal an fw2 image, I'm using Falcon Team image. In the end configure your CS server and enjoy. It's not a tutorial, you must find one on the internet first, I'm giving you a general basic steps to get there.
Bottomline:
I liked it very much, ordering another one.
