DreamboxMessageClient (DMC) extension

This extension allows you to send messages and questions via Internet to your Dreambox.

If you send a message it appears as pop-up window on your TV for some seconds. If you want to ask the person in front of the TV something you can send him/her a question consisting of a text and possible answers. The TV user can reply by choosing one of your options.

Messages and questions can be sent via a web interface, called DreamboxMessageServer (DMS), which can be access here. If you want to setup your own DMS read this TODO.
