Could you guys tell me if this dreambox 520 box is original or clone?
Don`t want to open it.
Heard the price is nearly the same
seller promised it was original.
not sure what image to flush on it
thanks

Look on Google for the differences. The DM I had you could verify it through the DM web page.

Somewhere in England (possibly?)!
Is there a brand name and model number printed on the front panel and/or on a label on the underside of the box - and, if so, what (exactly!) does it state, including any serial number or other "code"?

FWIW as I know absolutely nothing about Dreamboxes, I'm guessing that the S/N "DM520S161105243" might mean:
- Model number = DM520S
- Date of manufacturer = 05 November 2016 (using the ISO date coding method of year/month/day of the month) , and the actual box number is xxxx243
- the rest of the numbers might indicate the actual build/modification state when manufactured
- the barcodes are the barcoded versions of the "Date of Manufacture" and "build/modification state when manufacturered"

I think Dream MultiMedia have a plugin called 'Dreambox Verification'. Download that to the box and run it, should tell you one way or the other.
You will the Dreambox E2 installed though. Won't work with other images
