Hi, I bought a dreambox 500s and I have some problems with it. I was following the '
A NEWBIES GUIDE TO SETTING UP A DM500S FOR CARDSHARING' guide.

Ok so i downloaded the files needed and plugged my dreambox into my laptop and ran dream up. Then I get a message saying 'cant find any com ports - aborting'.

Do I have the correct cables? I cant seem to get this working. I am trying this on a laptop running windows 7. Heres the box and cables I bought:

Dreambox DM500S Satellite Receiver
StarTech 10 ft DB9 RS232 Serial Null Modem Cable F/M
USB 2.0 to Serial RS232 DB9 9 Pin Female Data Transfer Camera PC Converter Cable

or get yourself a older computer with RS232 Serial connection on the back,
you can then go into the computer settings and sellect the comports 1 or 2
then when you open dreamup click on the serial port that you picked and that should be you connected to the dreambox.
