Samsung SMT-G7400

Liberty Global gradually deploys the SMT-G7400 as Horizon in the associated cable operators markets.

The rollout - at least in germany - was accompanied by marketing activities. We don't care about marketing, but we are interested in the Horizons impressive technical data:

  • DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem, 8 Channels Downstream, 4 Channels Upstream
  • Two POTS ports
  • Four 10/100/1000 MBit/s Ethernet Ports
  • 802.11n WiFi , concurrent 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz operation
  • Six digital cable (DVB-C) tuners
  • PVR supporting a maximum of four concurrent recordings
  • IPTV Gateway (Multiroom-Clients)
  • Linux based

Unfortunately Liberty Global decided to disable the USB and eSATA ports. It's also impossible to access recordings via network. (Challenge accepted ;-)

Betreutes Basteln got an exploited Horizon as donation. Some not so important components (hard disk, fans, remote control and external power supply) are missing.

Let's start to hack!
