Re: Problems with SkyStar card

Even if you un-install a program correctly using the control panel/add remove programs applet there is often a wealth of information left in the registry and I have known this to interfere on numerous occasions with a subsequent re-install. The only safe way is to edit the registry and find and remove all references to the program in question.

I had a series of problems - even got Dave to replace / repair the Skystar
card! When returned by Dave it worked immediately - however when I decide
to reinstall (with Tellique's software) it would only receive the
Announcement Channel. Douglas Dean's suggestion about adding the extra PIDs
for HRIT and LRIT sorted it out and it now seems to work fine. Probably
some Windows Registry screw up on the re-install routines.

Summary, there are faulty cards about, but don't rely on SkyStar /
Tellique's software either, especially if you have tried to re-install a
number of times. I fully endorse the view on a FAQ - collective experience
may well help the unfortunate "Timestep 3".
