Hi people . im just trying to hook up my dreambox to my pc to upload an image. i dont seem to have the standard 9 pin socket on my comp to link it up, theres a usb to serial cable about on ebay, im just wondering if i can link my dreambox by this way to send an image to my box ?

Can you not flash the dm500 through network interface similar to dm600?

I find the USB to serial adapters work quite well with WinXP, but a lot of people seem to have problems with Vista.
