I currently have the latest Eumetsat software ver. 5.8. & Version of the Data Manager.
Much to my surprise I only receive SAF & Ascat data whereas all the
remaing data channels are missing !
My pid list is complete - green DVB symbol !
I am at an entire loss - could I have your help please ?
Thanks in advance and regards.


What did you change to bring about this state of affairs? Is you eToken
glowing red, with occasional dark flashes? Have you tried rebooting?

Hallo, David !
Thanks for your very kind interest in my drama. When put into a port accepting it the dongle produces a permanent red glow.
No flashes ! After x-reboots I now do not get anymore SAF data which was the only one opened before. All I have now is the announcement channel data being continuously produced - and o.k. status being shown. All this points to all data being blocked by some silly firewall or other blocking device. I run my PC now with XP professional - before I had XP home. Growing trouble with receiving tellicast-Eumetsat forced me to do this step. I did not see any alternative since Tellicast just was before its final breath.
So, reloading my PC from scratch has been futile so far.
I will send the facts to Darmstadt - Debbie did a great job in providing me rapidly with the new version 5.8. plus a new dongle.
Should you or another expert member of this group have some suspicion as to the reasons of my problem I would be most thankful for your thoughts.
There is no data from any data channel showing up.
