The easiest way to start may be to find an image (firmware) backup and flash that to your box. Many have posted backups of their image that are set up and ready for use. Be sure to find the correct image for your box model.
If you want to set every thing up yourself from scratch, there are many things to explain. Better if you try first and then ask the specific questions about the problems. Most things you set up from the menu, like Audio/Video settings, network, language, satellite dish setup etc. And some other things you might need some other tools and knowledge to do, like ftp and telnet. For reading your smartcard for watching encryted channels you might need to download a softcam. On some firmwares this is easy enaugh from the menu, on others this is not so easy accessable. Please just try, and then ask. Be sure to tell the exact problem and what image you are using. One good source for images and more information is sat-universe.com
Most video streams are digital, so just by watching tv from any sattelite does mean you are wathing digital tv. But I suspect that your question is related to IPTV, which are digital tv streams from the internet. There are IPTV plugins available for the dreambox, and even some youtube tutorials for how to set them up. Do a google search with keywords iptv dreambox to find out more
I had the same problem. This procedure from the "Technical Questions" section of http://shopdelphi.com/consumers/support/faqs/myfi/ worked for me: "My MyFi won't power up, how do I reset it?
To reset your MyFi, start by turning the receiver off and removing it
from its (car, home, audio system) cradle. Then remove the back cover
and battery. Using a small paperclip, press the reset button located on
the top left corner of the battery compartment. Now plug the AC power
adapter into a wall outlet and plug the power port directly into the
bottom of the MyFi (battery stays removed). Wait 10 seconds and listen
for a beep. After you hear the beep the message "insert battery" will
appear. Cycle the MyFi to ensure it powers up and powers down. If the
power cycle is normal, then turn off the MyFi, unplug the power adapter,
and reinstall the battery. Re-plug the AC power adapter directly into
the bottom of the MyFi. Wait 10 seconds and listen for a beep. After the
beep you will see the message "battery charging". Leave the MyFi
plugged in until it's fully charged. You will see the message "charging
complete" displayed. After the MyFi is fully charged, turn it on and
reset to the factory defaults. Unplug the MyFi from the AC power adapter
and using the battery power leave it on until it fully discharges
(approximately 2-5 hours). Plug the MyFi in using the AC power adapter
to recharge the unit and resume normal use.

Sounds like a bad battery. Try plugging DC adapter directly into the bottom of the unit and turn it on - does it still act-up? If so, bad radio; if it works with adapter only, then battery and charging issue.
Try replacing the AA batteries in the main clock/display unit - that worked for me, then you'll probably need to press the reset button next to the AA batteries, and maybe the reset button next to the AAA batteries in the remote unit - press reset on the main unit first. My remote is now registering and the red light is flashing, but I don't know how to reset to the correct time and date - it's been scanning for a while and found nothing...
