We'd like to thank everybody who paricipated in the "Gemini suggestion" thread. Unfortunatly many things can not be realized from our side.
This images doesn't contain any keys or softcams. Backups or other modified Images are not from us and won't be supported!
Gemini Images may only be used on receivers of the manufacturer Dream-Multimedia-TV.
The use of this Image is on your own risk.

Recommendation:
If you don't install the Image in flash memory, the flash image shouldn't be of a old version. A swap file/partition (>= 16MB) should be present
if several processes running in background. We assume no liability for direct or indirect damage.

Download via Database

Thanks a lot and have fun
Your Gemini-Team
As far as i am aware this has been released for all models of Dreambox that use Enigma 1

Downloadable at the IHAD forum

Not sure how many people will use this image as most people will probably be petrified to install it just in case their DM does turn out to be a clone

I certainly won't be going anywhere near it

So whos going to be brave enough to put it on their 500s

I suppose that I should be the first Nano, it would be only fair that after my shouting about DMMs right to undo clone/copy boxes. It would be a case of putting my faith to the test.

Very best regards Wez

I know both my 7020 and my 600 are definitely 100% Pukka Dream multimedia but i'm still not going anywhere near anything that the Gemini Team have to offer

I'm not going to harp on about what rights they have or haven't got as its just going to start another argument again

I'm not going there again

My Eaglebox is now packed away for a rainy day with a fresh copy of Nemesis on it

There are plenty of excellent images around now and unless you want to do the 'educational' thingy then there is no need to bother with Gemini images.

For me, EDG-Nemesis and DS teams are just fine thank you.

I might not use the new Gemini image, because there is no manual update in t by the looks of it. I very much like the EDG-nemesis image, but have trouble getting it to run right for me, but it really does look like a very good image,, it is getting the right EMUs for it, seems you need to get the right ones for it. As you know I have not been able to set up my boxes on the net - set up a network that is any good - so I can't download anything so I need to put everything in manually and I have been spoiled with the blue button in the Gemini.

Very best regards Wez
