SKY on the Dreambox for Dummies?
There are a few prerequisites for receiving SKY on the Dreambox:
- At best, an Enigma image (or others) with Gemini to automatically install the necessary software packages.
- A little experience with Telnet and FTP connections to the Dreambox.
- A CAM feed for installing a CAM on the Dreambox.
- Editor for creating the CAM config files.
Step 1: Installation CAM on the Dreambox
OSCAM, for example, can be used for SKY reception. For the installation of a CAMS under Enigma2/Gemini, a CAM feed has been required for some time because the CAMs are no longer officially supported by IHAD.
The following CAM feed must be installed to select the CAMs.
To install the feed, copy the file gp-cam-feed_0.3_mipsel.ipk to the root directory of the box (the top folder in the folder structure in the FTP program).
Then via the Dreambox menu
Menu -> Settings -> Software Management -> Install Local Extension -> Internal Flash -> Install Extension (Select the file here)
to install. Possibly the GUI of the Dreambox must be restarted after installing the CAM feed.
Through the CAM feed, the CAMs are displayed in the Dreambox’s plugin menu and can be selected for installation.
BluePanel ->Addons -> Gemini SoftCamd -> gp-cam-oscam-1.00 -> OK -> green button for install

Select BluePanel -> Setup-Camd -> OSCAM
The OSCAM can be restarted/initially started with the red button.
It should then be possible to receive the SKY channels. Depending on the skin, the active CAM is also displayed in the program info panel:
