How do Timeboxes align with sprints in a hybrid approach like dsdm atern and scrum

It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, see the FAQ.
I too am not entirely sure what you mean by the hybrid approach, but a timebox is essentially a sprint - a dedicated slot of time to do a certain amount of work.
If you're following the DSDM method, the manual suggests breaking the project down into a number of iterative cycles, with each cycle subdivided into timeboxes/sprints.
For me, one of the major differences between DSDM and Scrum is that DSDM works on the basis of a fixed deadline for delivery, whereas scrum doesn't necessarily specify this.
