Dave,

With a PCI buss and Win XP, IRQ worries are history. I'm not even sure if
you can control IRQ's manually. The system takes care of it automagicly. I
have many devices sharing the same IRQ's including my serial ports and it
all works fine.

Mike, one thing to look at with your serial ports is IRQ
assignments. I have
heard it said that its ok to assign the same IRQ to more than one serial
port, but I have never seen that configuration run reliably. I haven't yet
installed an XP system here, and so can't tell you how to go
about checking
the hardware resource assignments; perhaps someone with XP expertise can
help with that.

I monitor 4 clusters plus CQDX, and so wouldn't notice if WWV info wasn't
being captured from one of them. I'm now running an instrumented version
that shows me from where WWV info is being captured; this should help
isolate the problem.

Happy 2002 to all:

I'm pleased to report that my problems with depleted system resources
are a thing of the past, thanks to an upgrade to XP Professional. All
of the components in the suite now run smoothly, with apparent room to
spare.

Today's message deals with two problems, and I'm hoping that the group's
shared expertise will bail me out once again.

Problem #1: The upgrade to XP has rendered my PCI serial card impotent.
My PC has only one OEM serial port, and I'm currently using it for the
link to my rig. To add serial ports, I had been using a PCI Serial card
with two additional ports. XP did not recognize the card, so I went to
the manufacturer's site to look for an updated driver. I found and
installed a "beta" driver for my card (NetMos Technology Nm9835CV), and
the card/ports were then recognized and I was back in business.
Unfortunately, the beta driver must be buggy, because my PC locks up
moments after booting - a problem that disappears as soon as I uninstall
the PCI card. Does any one know of a PCI Serial card (2-4 ports) with
XP compatible drivers that can be had for a reasonable (less than $100)
price?

Problem #2: I'm running SpotCollector 1.1.2 and my WWV information has
not updated since November 23rd. I've seen WWV info posted on DX
Central since then, but SpotCollector is not grabbing it. Apparently,
no one else is experiencing this problem. Any suggestions?

Re: XP w/Serial PCI serial card?

Richard B Drake
 

Oh! I'm sorry to hear of your ports card problem though they are quite
similar to the problems I had with a RocketPort USB 4 port serial hub. They
have yet to provide an XP compatible driver for that device and their Win 2K
driver locks up the system when I try to use their ports. I wrote to them
and they said yes, the Win 2K driver is no good on XP and they are working
on a XP driver but could not provide any ETA. Well, I can't do without my
extra ports so I bought a SIIG PCI card with 2 serial ports. It is also
available in a 4 port version. An XP compatible driver came right on the
installation floppy, and though it is not yet signed by Microsoft, it works
flawlessly.

The moral of the story is learn which companies stay on top of these things
and buy only from them. SIIG has had good reports from everyone and I think
Dave has reported good results with Belken devices though check their web
site to make sure they support XP before you buy.

Re: Overflow error

Richard B Drake
 

Dave,

I have been out of the shack for the past 2 days. When I came in this
morning, I realized that I had left my computer running. My dial up internet
connection has been up for four days and most of DXLab is running, I.E.:
SpotCollector, WinWarbler, CIV-Commander, DXView and DXKeeper. A few other
things were also running: MS-Outlook, Notepad, MS-Excel and Windows
Explorer. After seeing this post I checked to see how many entries had
accumulated in the Spot Database while I was away (2 cluster connections are
active). There are currently 8476 entries in the database and everything is
still running fine. Thus, I doubt if Oba's problem is related to the number
of entries in the database.

I was running SpotCollector 1.1.5 with DXView 1.4.1.
The overflow was reported in a pop-up window.

When I hit the OK button of the pop-up error window, SpotCollector
immediately terminated. I again ran SpotCollector, but SpotCollector
ended up with the same error in half an hour or so. Then, I cleared
all the entries by hitting the Clear button in the size limit pane of
the configuration window. SpotCollector keeps running without the
error more than four hours now. That is why I questioned the limit
in the number of entries.

Re: Overflow error

Thanks for th information. I routinely run SpotCollector's database up to
40,000 entries before remembering to trim it; things do get sluggish on a
300 mhz machine, but is unnoticeable on a 1.5 ghz machine. So the defect is
not simply running past a database size limit, although that may be part of
it. I have never tested under a Japanese version of Windows and worry that
this may also be a contributing factor. I'l review the code with this in
mind.

I do not recall the exact number, but I think it was around 2,000.

I again had SpotCollector running since yesterday night. It had been
running for about seven hours and terminated with the same error this
morning. The number of entries was 2,139. This, however, is not a
big problem to me, so please address it when you have time.

By the way, in the main window of the SpotCollector, I could select
and move a column (e.g., Callsign) to any position in the table by
drag&drop. However, the columns go back to the default order
whenever a new entry comes in.

Again, many thanks for the great software suite.

Your plan for replacing the Broke button with an Advanced button, sounds
right on target to me.

I agree that SQL queries would require users to have some basic knowledge of
SQL. But basic SQL queries are pretty intuitive and there are a plethora of
books available on the topic. With a couple hours reading a semi-skilled
user would find himself able to do some pretty amazing things with his data.

I wasn't aware of the MS Query add in for Excel 2000 but am indeed about to
find out about it :-)

[Snip]
Using the Log report as a way of exporting to Excel to get
filtering beyond
DXKeeper's present capabilities is clever, but indicates a gap in
functionality. The only real challenge in adding additional filtering
capabilities -- including an ad hoc SQL query -- is finding room in the
Window for the command buttons. I propose to do this by replacing the
current "Broke" filter command button with a button captioned "Advanced".
Clicking the "Advanced" filter button would display a window full of
additional filter commands, including the "Broke" and the ad hoc
SQL query.
I'd probably implement the ad hoc query first, since it permits
everything,
and then later add a user interface that supports the composition
of useful
queries without requiring knowledge of SQL.. Comments on this approach,
and/or suggested alternatives would be greatly appreciated.

Since DXKeeper's log database files are compatible with the
Microsoft Access
database, you can use Excel 2000's Data:GetExternalData:NewDatabaseQuery
command to create a spreadsheet from a query on your log. You'll need MS
Query, which shows up on the Office 2000 setup under "Add-ins". If you
happen to have MS Access, you can view and query your log database files
directly; just be careful if you attempt to modify anything.

73 and Happy New Year...
