Re: EUMETCAST Loss of High Volume Services

I would suspect the new SR1 receiver first. Have you a third receiver that you could substitute to test this? Has the new receiver been set up correctly? There is a clear disconnect at the receiver substitution and it is unlikely that the dish alignment got disturbed coincidentally.
Best of luck!

Hello everyone,

We have an EUMETCast Linux reception station that has developed a fault on the
Ayecka SR1 DVB receiver last month.  Having replaced the SR1 receiver, we are now
able to collect all the basic services data, but only a tiny fraction of the high volume services.

Typically, we are getting the hvs-1/EPS1, EPS2, EPS5, EPS10 data during the hour
between 06:00 and 07:00 but almost nothing outside that period.

Ironically we had been getting the full hvs-1 data without issue before the breakdown on the SR1.
Currently the signal Demodulator Es/N0 is about 9db.

Before attempting the option of adjusting the dish pointing on site which being locked down,
I wonder if any one has any advice that we can try to improve the hvs1 data reception.

Many thanks.
