Stream2Dream Linux new Version

For the LT Image for the Dreambox I created a small program to stream from your Linux server to your Dreambox. But I stopped this project in end 2007. After that, no updates or bug fixes. But a new girl has taken over the project!

So head over to to get new updates and bug fixes!

Great work Sunci!

Fix for my Dreambox Ziggo Channel list

Ziggo have changed some channel frequenties to a new 256-QAM modulation. It toke for a while to figure out the changes, but I did notice that some channels that where using the 256-QAM modulation did not work anymore.

After a week of testing and reading, I found out that my code did not look at the QAM modulation at all. It turns out, that Ziggo was doing only 64-QAM, so my list was always working. Now the Dreambox Ziggo Channel list software is looking at the modulation and take that in account with the frequency information.

Dreambox ReStream update 2.0.6

The previous update took almost one year. The next update only one day! :D

This new 2.0.6 version has a much better VLC usage. This will reduce the CPU usage with at least 50% compared to the 2.0.5 version. The 2.0.5 version was transcoding every output. Where the new version only transcode per stream profile. And with the introduction of iPhone streaming, the output duplicated. And therefore the CPU usage. Now this is fixed, and the CPU usage is dropped a lot.

VLC 2.0 is out!

VLC has released version 2.0. And this is great for Dreambox ReStream. We can now stream to iPhone whitout any extra software. VLC is capable of generating the iPhone chunks and playlist from the same source as the flash stream. Dreambox ReStream did already had some code for iPhone streaming so in the next release it will be there and running smooth with the flash streaming.
