Re: Reports from a least affected user

The 27.5 Ms/s is the digital chip rate of the signal. Data uses a number
of chips per bit, I don't know how many with Hotbird/T-Systems. But the data
bit rate is likely to be less than 5 MHz. Its by doing this that the digital
format can get more channels into the transponder than an analog system
would, and still maintain a usable S/N ratio.

Best regards - Alan

I don't suppose it would help but has anyone affected by the
problems (Windows XP) tried adding to the boot file, the very last
line, /pcilock - according to Microsoft knowledge base this can
help with PCI IRQ conflicts.

[boot loader]
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)&#92;WINNT="Microsoft Windows XP
Professional" /fastdetect /pcilock
Didn't know about that one, James. As I read it though, this means
that you have to sort out the IRQs yourself first, and then Windows
doesn't touch the result.

Talking of interrupts - the 188 byte packets come down at a 27.5MS/s
rate. What is the resulting bit rate? 100Mb/s? One bit every
10ns? So a 188 byte packet lasts 2us? There's no way a PC could
handle 500K interrupts a second! So what is the packet size and
interrupt rate? How many packets fit into the on-card buffer?
