Test Report for Deambox DM-7025

Deambox DM-7025

Dreambox is sleek but elegant in the silver-colored cabinet. There are three buttons to be seen on the front panel. The remaining seven buttons are hidden behind the front panel flap. Here you will also found a CI slot and 2 smart card readers for access to pay channels. The window display is situated on the right corner of the box. On the rear panel you will find the IF input looped through output, as well as an RF modulator, two Scart connectors, three RCA jacks for video and stereo audio, an optical digital audio output, a programmable 0/12-volt output, RS-232 serial interface for uploading a new receiver software, USB output, internet connection, Modem output and a main power switch. The included remote control sits nicely in your hand although some of the buttons are a little on the small side. The whole workmanship and features of this receiver left us with a very positive impression.

Dreambox DM-7025 receiver comes with unlimited preprogrammed channels from the Astra, Hotbird and Turksat satellites. The user can communicate with the receiver in English, German, Italian, Spanish, French, Turkish, Arabic, Greek, Portuguese and Dutch. The selection of language depends on the choice of user. Both the PAL and NTSC standards are supported, as is the automatic switching between the two. The video signal is provided in RGB or CVBS; YUV or S-video outputs for owners of flat screen TV's or projection systems are unfortunately missing.

The Dreambox DM-7025 supports DiSEqC 1.2 for control of a motorized antenna. The more-comfortable DiSEqC 1.3 (USALS) protocol is also supported. If you happen to be the owner of a multifeed antenna, you'll be happy to know that this box comes with a programmable 0/12-volt output. There is also an array of European and Asian satellites preprogrammed and they are fully up-to-date.

In addition to universal LOF values, the DM-7025 also supports the C-band. If necessary the LOF can be set manually, even for the S-band. Once all of the necessary LNB setting have been taken care of, the next step would be the channel scan. Along with an automatic channel scan, a network search as well as a search for free or all channels, there's also a manual transponder scan available. Manual PID entry is also possible. 1666 TV channels were found in 10 minutes and 20 seconds. If you need to bring some organization to the channel list, this can be done via the channel manager. Here channels can be deleted, renamed or moved. Other channels that are watched more frequently can be moved into one of the eight favourites lists while channels that are inappropriate for the kids can be locked out with a PIN code. This box is fully MPEG2, DVB compliant.

Switching from one channel to another is quite fast and the relatively large OSD text makes it easy to read even from a long distance. As is normal with most other receivers, channels can be deleted, moved or renamed. Thanks to the excellent on-screen help menus. Another highlight of this receiver is the truly first class design of the EPG. It provides information on current and upcoming programmes. If the TV does not have its own Teletext decoder, then the built-in decoder in the TV box will provide access to this service. The TV picture remains visible in something similar to a picture-in-picture window of being blended in. Symbolrates starting at the rate of 2.45ms/sec were processed easily during our tests.

While you are going for automatic scan, here you will first decide whether to search for All channels or FTA only. Kids may be keep away from adult channel by parental lock Function. The DM-7025 is a mass produced receiver for the reception of satellites. It is very pleasing to the eye. If the remote control is not immediately available, the receiver can be controlled via buttons on the front panel. Operation of this receiver is simple and the included help texts make reading the user manual almost unnecessary. Furthermore, it is economical and nicely equipped solution for everyday satellite reception. The Dreambox DM-7025 is CE certified and fulfils all requirements of the EU-standards.
