===={{color c="gray" text="The PDA Webif page"}}====

If you have a PDA or mobile phone that allows you to use wifi you can also take advantage of the world wide web interface (webif) that is built into your DM box. Simply open the web browser in your PDA to the [[E1SystemNetwork IP address]] of your DM box and the screen below will appear. If you want to test this first on your PC simply open the webif with a screen size of "250" i.e. and the PDA webif will appear.

- Change the volume on your DM box
- Start recording
- Stop recording
- Set the audio channel you want to use
- Set the video channel you want to use

**TIP:** great to use if you do not have the remote control handy

===={{color c="gray" text="The PDA Control section"}}====
One of the more powerful features of this option is the ability to control the DM boxes functions. Send messages to the TV etc.

You can use your PDA to tune your dish, not quite as good as the [[E1Satfind Zoom]] function on a notebook, but still good enough all the same.

===={{color c="gray" text="The PDA timer/record function"}}====
If you have a DM box that has a local hard disk you can record on, then not only can you select the record function, you can also setup the timer functions as shown below.

**Apple Iphone 3G users:** you may not always see all the content in the drop down menus (browser issue)

So if you see the webif come up like the image shown below it has got the //wrong Webif//. The image pictured below
is the //normal// PC webif //NOT// the PDA Webif. So if you try to reconnect it should come up with a URL of
// http://ipofdreamboxonyourWAN/?screenWidth=320 // <- **320** is the correct 3G screen size for the PDA Webif.
If need be enter this URL in by hand making sure you have /?screenWidth=320 on the end of the URL.
