Re: Your Review: Set-Top Box solutions

My Wife bought me a Digital sat box and 60cm dish from Jumbo for 160chf
the make is lemon i found out info on where the dish should be pointing
from this forum put the dish up and within 1 hour i was sat with a beer
watching the X-Factor on ITV . Anyone can do it .

I now have a Sky box bought from E-Bay for 50 and my Parents brought
it with them when they visited . Now i am considering a contract for full
Sky with Sky.de.

Re: Your Review: Set-Top Box solutions

I read through this thread and the [Everything] Bluewin TV thread but still have some questions about the Bluewin TV set top box. Hopefully someone who knows the internals of the box can help.
  • Can I access the system OS and hard disk by connecting a PC to the device by USB or Ethernet port? Connection ports at the back of the box. The USB port is "currently not operating". What is it used for?
  • What format does it use to store movies and TV programs? Is content stored as files or binary database objects?
  • I found this wholesale ad that suggests that the video encoding is "MPEG-2 ISO MP@ML (full & half D1), 1..12 Mbps". Does that mean content is stored as .mpg files? Can MPEG encoding be used in other file types?
  • Who manufactures the device? Are there any specs about the OS?

I would like to know if I can upload and store my own content on the device. For example, if I download a movie from the Internet in .avi or .mpg format, will I be able to copy it onto the device and will the system play it?
