Re: FSD Hourly

Ian Deans

Hello Alan

I take your point re the target_directory line and you may be correct about
that ( I must test that ) but the [ EUMETSAT DATA Channel 1] and [EUMETSAT
DATA Channel 4] are case sensitive and in both cases the word DATA should
read "Data"

To double check I have just changed my [EUMETCAST Data Channel 2] to
[EUMETCAST DATA channel 2] and as expected the data flow stopped.

Hi all,
Ian, I had always understood that filenames in Windows and DOS were
case insensitive, so your explanation might not be correct.

I offer an alternative with a question. MSG DM only has one box for the
location of received files. Usually it points to the \T-Systems\Business
TV-IP\received folder, but if you have followed David's advice and used
separate received filenames for the four channels, how do you tell the
Manager of the four filenames? In my system, I used \received for
Channels 1, 2 and 3, and when I wanted to get Channel 4, I followed the
then current advice and called it\received\Channel 4. But I cannot find
anywhere where I have pointed the MSG DM to this folder. I have used
separate received folders for the METOP, AHVRR and RSS channels as the
data for these is handled by separate programs with separate Setup
boxes. I am successfully receiving the 1 hour data so somehow it is
finding its way into MSG DM!

Best regards - Alan S

Geoffrey, the first two items listed in your recv-channels.ini have a
"d" in the word data and I suspect that you will therefore not be getting
any data from channel one and four.

The word Data should have a capital "D" as shown in your channel 2 and 3.
If you amend this I suspect that you will start to receive the hourly FSD.

Hope that helps.

Thanks again for help, I regret that I can still not get the hourly FSD.
I have rechecked again including the PID. 0x01F4 appears in the Techni Sat
active PID list and in MSGM set up.

Copy of my rec-channels.ini below...............................what next

# recv-channels.ini - TelliCast+TelliVision Client channel configuration
# 2-4-3 10-10-2005

target_directory=C:&#92;received&#92;data Channel 1

target_directory=C:&#92;received&#92;data Channel 4

[EUMETSAT Data Channel 2]
target_directory=C:&#92;received&#92;Data Channel 2

[EUMETSAT Data Channel 3]
target_directory=C:&#92;received&#92;Data Channel 3
