The Cloud Ibox II is a cheap affordable satellite receiver running Linux. It is priced between 90 and 130€. It features:
- 2 x USB (although the case shows otherwise, it seems this is 1x USB 1.0 and 1 x USB 2.0)
- Ethernet connection
- DVB-S2 tuner
- 1 x card reader
- linux based
- dreambox plugin compatible
- price tag is between 90 and 130€ (often including a USB Wi-Fi Antenna)
It mostly comes pre-installed with a special version of the OpenPli 4.0 frontend. This is due to the situation that OpenPLI at this moment not yet supports the Cloud Ibox II. But I strongly hope this will come soon.
After tinkering with this device the whole weekend, we have some tips and tricks for the other users of this device.
