Dream Multimedia (end-of-sale models, no longer supported)


Note that OpenPLi has stopped with all active support for hardware from
Dream Multimedia. Newer models, including dm500hd v2, dm800se v2, dm7020hd v2 and
the dm7080hd will not receive support from OpenPLi due to DMM closing up their
sources. Please see the official OpenPLi statement on the homepage

Support for these end-of-sale models is "as-is". Other than the OpenPLi version listed in
the table, there will be no further development for these STB's.
