DBox Commander 3

With DBox Commander 3 you can watch the TV program from your DBox on your Macintosh. See all your bouquets, channels, program infos in a nice cocoa application and control your DBox from your Mac. With the newest version you can also record with a timer. Just double click on the program and it will be added to the timerlist in the sidebar.

- switch between single/all languages (reduces the load because the DBox has just a 10MBit ethernet card)
- switch between summer/wintertime
- direct start of recording by double click the channel
- add to timerlist by double clicking on the program (the saved filename will be the name of the program you record)
- specify the maximum record filesize to prevent the harddisc to fill up to the top

- EPG information for all channel

Go and get my little programm. It will play a sound when a user logs in or out (ssh, telnet, remote, ftp, system). It is a menu item so it won't bother you with open windows. On one click it will show you IP, login time and even more... Take a look at the screenshots:

click -> #1 <- click


click -> #2 <- click

System Requirements:
1) You will have to use Mac OS X 10.1.5 or greater (incl. Jaguar and Panther). Maybe it will also work on 10.1.x - I don't know. Tell me...
2) Installed BSD subsystem
3) Installed Java2 1.3 or higher (it is included in the standard OS X installation, don't worry)

Before you start: I can not guarantee that these programs won't kill your system or even your computer. Most likely they won't do so. At least they have never done any harm to me, my computer or my system.
