PLi® Wiki ภาษาไทย - [testing a Thai based Wiki]

So, what is this Wiki 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(DM) set top boxes . Currently, we support the DreamBox series of DVB-S, DVB-C and DVB-T receivers.

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

How do I install the latest PLi® image on my DM box?

In this wiki section, you will find a series of howto's and explanation's of the different methods of installing a new image onto your set top boxes, that our PLi® images currently support.
