How To SnapShot An Image On TV Using DreamBox?
DreamBox is a DVB Satellite and Cable TV receiver software powered by Linux which
was developed by the TuxBox project for DBox2. It is very useful software for taking the snapshot images and thus, you’ll like to know the procedure on how you could take one appearing on your TV.
To figure it out, follow these steps:
Connect Dreambox and your personal computer with Ethernet cable.
With the Dreambox remote control, navigate to Menu->Setup-> Expert Setup->Communication Setup and then, note down the Dreambox Internet Protocol (IP) address. Use this Internet Protocol address in next step. Later, on your system’s screen, click on Internet Explorer and enter the Internet Protocol address in the address field. Lets say for example, Type http://192.168.1.4. It will then prompt you for a username and password. Enter ‘Root’ as the User Name and ‘Dreambox’ as the Password, in order to get an access to your Dreambox.
Then move to the main menu and click on ‘Control’ button, which is on the left side the pane, along with the other buttons to select like OSDshot, LCDshot, Screenshot etc. According to your choice, click any one of them and it will display the snapshot of the current picture running on your TV, which you can easily save on your personal computer for your future reference.
If you want to hide some sensitive content or only want to go for its menu content, then you can set it by using OSDshot.
These are very simple steps when compared to a digital camera, which is mostly used to create multiple files. No doubt, these steps are also very helpful to reduce your efforts, if you want to share your TV screen, using Dreambox Satellite decoder.
