    Default DM500-s troubles: network/pin/password/serial port

    My DM500-s started having issues after a power outage - it's continually dropping network packets.

    I went out and found two used DM500-s, and now have other issues with these:

    1. don't know the PIN - so I can't change the settings
    2. telnet/ftp/ssh password seems to have been changed so I can't get access that way.
    3. dreamup doesn't see the box at power up.
    4. attempts to use the serial console have been frustrating:
      - at 115200, 8,N,1, with no flow control or with Xon/Xoff
      - I only get jibberish at the console at power up
      - I read a post somewhere that said to repeatedly press the X key at startup in the console, then enter:
      Code:
      "console=null root=/dev/mtdblock5 rootfstype=squashfs ro console=ttyS0,115200 single"
      . That actually turned the display into something readable until it gets to the point where busybox starts, then I get jibberish again and cannot proceed.


    As such I now have two more dreambox paperweights. Anyone have any further ideas? I'd prefer to not JTAG, but can if I must....

    I considered that, I can run rqcs on a PC, but I would still need to feed the card the EMM/ECM for updates....none of my FTA boxes (dreamlink/jynxbox) send them....I presume I would need a DVB-S2 PC card and use rqcamd as well?
