Howto use the world wide web interface built into my DM box

Every DM box has a built in world wide web server or webif as it is also known as, which allows you do to;

Change the channels on your DM box
Change the bouquets on your DM box
Change the network provider on your DM box
Change satellites you are watching on your DM box
Change the volume
Setup yor DM box as a media center client
Watch your DM box on your PC via Web-X-TV
Listen to your DM box on your PC via the APid option
Setup recordings on your DM box and change the recording timer functions
Mount network devices or computers to your DM box
Tune your dish with the Zoom and Satfinder options, with wifi to a notebook by the dish (only if you have wifi)

and so much more. In short the webif provides you with complete control of your DM box form a web browser like firefox.

Howto do it (a very simple process)

In this example below we will use the IP address of and this world wide web site in your DM box will appear.


Now that was easy.

Tip: What is the best web browser to use with this Webif? Firefox is the best on all computer platforms, although others do work, but not as well.
Tip: You can port forward this Webif to the Internet, see your modem / routers user manual on how to forward port 80 to the WAN
Tip: The Webif is only as good as your LAN! If your LAN is mis-configured then expect problems with some of the Webif features!

Known Issues: On some Linux distributions Firefox does not always like our news ticker, but you can disable this feature on the drop down menu above.
