Welcome to PLi® Wiki

It is our goal to make this PLi® WikiPedia:Wiki into a real knowledge base, with all information imaginable about both the Dreambox and the PLi® firmware images. To archieve this goal, we need your help. All members of this website have write access to this PLi® WikiPedia:Wiki, and can create new pages or update existing pages. When you want to do this, please read the FormattingRules first.

So, what is this website about?

This website is the support website of the PLi® development team. We develop alternative firmware for linux based DVB receivers but on this wiki we will only be discussing images for the Dream Multi Media set top boxes . Currently, we support the Dreambox series of DVB-S, DVB-C and DVB-T receivers.

Our images were tested on and made for the original Dreamboxes only, and it is important you understand this fact. Other (alternative) boxes may have some incompatibilities, but we can't design for that. Altough at the moment there are no plans to support other brands of receivers, this might change in the future.
