Re: Using the dvbs2 box

Ian Deans

David, your Windows 8 test box (presumably Dexatek/ DVBWorld) I assume is
running on Windows 8 32-bit.

I have spent ages trying to get my Dexatek box to run on Windows 8 64 bit
without success. It is the old drivers (2007/2008) which are needed for
Windows 7 64 bit which are not working.

I like Windows 8, but unfortunately using the 64-bit version on my 1
computer set-up I am finding the results disappointing with my SkyStar card
and Technisat HD USB box. I am reverting back to Windows 7 64-bit probably
at the weekend possibly with a new SSD running everything (interesting !!! )

All the drivers installed, eToken functional, dvb box configured as per
instructions on DJT's pages, addresses etc all set.
tc-recv remains yellow.
dvbs2 shows 001 Akubis Direkt not 'testbild'.

Any ideas anyone?

What does the TelliCast log file say? Or the same through the HTML shell?
Have you checked the IP address of the DVB S2 box? I see I had a similar
problem on my Windows-8 test box, and that was because I had removed UDP
access from tc-recv.exe in the Windows Firewall settings. Might be worth
checking that tc-recv.exe is allowed both UDP and TCP access through the
firewall, in both private and public domains.

Can you PING
