Re: Windows 2004 Update



Just to say that I updated to the latest Windows update yesterday afternoon but before I did since my computer runs 24/7/365 I did a Disk clean-up on both C: and E: drives and then a system optimise.

Tellicast started automatically and all David's programmes ran OK and tc-cast HTML shell showed data flowing OK on Both BS and HVS-1.

However when I opened the SR1 Contoller all dials were at zero and then it went red - not locked.
But data was flowing, the data port on the SR1 twinkling and the antenna connection green.

I unplugged the SR1 power for several seconds and re-plugged it - the receiver received and sent data again (hot boot).
Controller still showed 'red no lock.'

Closed Controller and opened it again still zero dials with data running.
Rebooted the computer and SR1 Controller worked properly.

Windows update?
Or my 'clean out' before loading the update????

Sorry to hear that Ian. I run an SR-1 and TBS 6903 in dual mode using Crazycat’s drivers and it hasn’t had any impact on reception (the 2004 update). The only issue was a change of interface number for the monitoring LAN port I use.

The TBS is an internal card.
