Setting up the private servers:

Follow the steps:

1) Go to Menu -> Configuration…Set your Time and your A/V Output Settings and also UI Settings.

2) Menu -> Network Settings and hit the Blue button on remote to set up your servers.

A box will appear select password 0000.

You have several private servers you can put in.

3) To place your servers in take your time and make sure all your PS settings are right.

  • Host or ip (server)..after done push exit
  • Port…when done push arrow down on remote directional pad
  • Id (username)…after your done press exit
  • Password…after done press exit
  • Des Key..after done press exit

4) Press Connect….press ok and see if it connects, if it says not connected hit it again and see if it does.

-  NOTE: If it does not say Connected,  you have not entered the settings right.

5) Press exit …you will be back to server setup…make sure you see your ps is on not off.

6) Press exit again you will be back to Network Settings.

7) Let the receiver sit upto 3 minutes. You will see a box pop up,  and it will tell you which servers are connected.

Will say Network is Connected (4)(3) if you have 2 activated. Exit out if connected.

I have mine on DHCP in Network setting and mine populated no problem.

8) Goto Menu -> Channel List and do parental control or set a favorite list.

After setting up your PS & Network settings, check out the following:

- Utilities: Thats where you can see System Information on your box.

- Utilities: Mp3 Player is there

- Utilities: Image Viewer Data transfer if you want to save Ch list or put a file on and also the PVR Menu

Which i think you all know what to do in those places.

NOTE: Dreamlink HD remote will operate the Dreamlink SD box.

 

Populating your Guide:

DN:

Go to channel 200 or 239. Then go into the EPG and using the red button make sure you are in normal view, not list view… Then hit the yellow button which is dish epg, and do not change the channel for about 10 minutes or so. You can stay in the EPG menu or exit, seems to make no difference.. You should then have a 4 to 9 day EPG…

BEV:

For Bev sit on 1050 and then hit blue button in epg

ENJOY!
