Hi, this is a very good and useful tool. but i miss a feature that supports subchannels like they are used at Premiere (Germany) --> Sport Channel for example. Will this a future feature?

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.

Might be more popular if it recorded longer, or there was a trial period, as opposed to 1 minute recording.
