DBox Commander

3.0
14 September 2007

Watch DBox channels on your Mac via VLC.

Overview

With DBox Commander you can watch the TV program from your DBox on your Mac. See all your bouquets, channels, program infos in a nice cocoa application and control your DBox from your Mac. With the newest version you can also record with a timer. Just double click on the program and it will be added to the timerlist in the sidebar.

Features:

  • switch between single/all languages (reduces the load because the DBox has just a 10MBit ethernet card)
  • switch between summer/wintertime
  • direct start of recording by double click the channel
  • add to timerlist by double clicking on the program (the saved filename will be the name of the program you record)
  • specify the maximum record filesize to prevent the harddisc to fill up to the top
  • DBox time in the window
  • EPG information for all channels

What's new in DBox Commander

Version 3.0:
  • Channel search
  • Expand automatic recording before and after
  • Remove items from the timer
  • Automatic summertime
  • Change default save location
  • GUI cleanup

This software is great. It´s small, fast and very reliable. And it works flawlessly together with OSX "Tiger" 10.4.4 and the newest VLC client (0.8.4a). It beats DBox-TV hands down.

Hello ! Solved the problem with the rare stocking. Edit in the .app folder in Contents/Resources the files dboxcommander and dboxcommaderrec and insert the following: --file-caching 5000 It should look like this: ./ggrab -q -host $dboxip -port 31338 -p $vpid $apid $apid2 $apid3 $apid4 $apid5 -o - | "$vlcpfad" --file-caching 5000 /dev/stdin -v 0 >> /dev/null 2>&1 and in the dboxcommaderrec file also insert --file-caching 5000 in the same position. The 5000 is the cache in ms....so you can reduce it until it starts stocking again to minimize the delay in playback

If there are messages for buffer errors try setting to single language. Its because of the slow 10MBit of the DBox. With multi language it is sometimes to small and stockes the picture or greates buffer error messages.
