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

The main Webif page for the DM7025 and the DM800

Every DM box has a built in world wide web server or webif as it is also known as.
Please do not confuse the E1 Webif with this E2Webif as they are very different. This webif is so much more advances and takes a few minutes to get used to. It even has a PDA
webif for your smart phone or PDA.

This E2Webif allows you do to;

Change the channels on your set top box
Change the bouquets on your set top box
Change the network provider on your set top box
Change the volume on your set top box
Setup your set top box as a Media Center client
Watch your set top box on your via the monitor icon/link on your computer
Setup timer events to record
Search a movie database in real time - to get more details on the movies you want to watch/record
Send RSS feeds to other EPG devices (popcorn/tivo etc) on your LAN
... and so much more.

In short the webif provides you with control of your DM box from a web browser like Firefox3 and from your PDA.

Known Issue: IE7 does not function as it should in the WEBIF so please use Firefox3 where possible

Howto do it (a very simple process)

In this example below we will use the IP address of http://dreambox (which on my network is and this world wide web site in your DM box will appear.


What are some of these settings

The top bar details

At the top of the webif we see;

The next line down
The next line down is the EPG bar, which displays what the current channel is is playing our in now and next mode.
If you click on the highlighted or names in bold, a short description of the programme playing will appear in the line
below the bold name (just like pressing the INFO button on your remote control). The example below shows all the details.


The menus on the left handside of the webif
This is where all the business happens in the Webif. But before we get into a detailed description there are a few things
you will have need to have done (or not done whatever the case may be).
  1. Make sure you have scanned your satellites (otherwise this is all a bit pointless)
  2. If you use dreamEDIT make a series of bouquets. There is an example called "ALL" in the image below
  3. If you do not use dreamEDIT or some other application to do this do not panic as we will get to this below

This side menu leads to so many functions and features so we will go through them 1 x 1 (one by one)

Sidebar menu - TV and Radio menus options

What does the TV & radio option allow me to do?

If you have defined your favorites or added a bouquet to your DM box you can from this menu
do many things. You will note when you have defined a bouquet or favorites list the menu looks
very different from one that does not. below we see what is defined under the ServiceList where as
if you did not set this up this screen is blank. If it is bland look under the Providers TV (or radio)



From the Electronic Program Guide menu displayed below you can further;
