But what really counts, do you have less missing segments ?activity around these times. Guess it's time to do some defragging !
Arne, my own log shows:
Missing HRIT & LRIT segments report
msg-ch11, seg: 3
msg-ch04, seg: 3
lrit-ch04, seg: 3
and not the segments you missed. Around 12:45 segment 3 the testing
PC with the new DVB card was closed down, so there could have been a
transient on the shared LNB control line. What I have now done
effectively is to upgrade the receiver PC from a 550MHz PIII with
the V2.3 SkyStar card to a 1GHz PIII with the newer V2.6B card (and
also with a complete fresh install of Windows 2000 Prof SP4).
I do notice that with the new card, in either of the two PCs where
it has been tested, the mouse movement is subject to occasional
judder, gaps of motion lasting a fraction of a second. This judder
does not occur when the card is not installed and receiving data.
Both PCs have a PS2 mouse.
What I found with the testing PC (2.8GHz P4) was that whilst
most "office" use of the PC did not produce missing segments,
running anything that was very CPU intensive could result in
segments begin missed. E.g. making panoramas, and some Paint Shop
Pro filtering or resampling operations. Eating CPU for more than
(say) one second was not on. (On the other hand, running disk
defrags, anti-virus, Zone Alarm etc. seems to be OK. Perhaps
because they involve I/O as well as CPU activity). I had hoped to
be able to run the DVB card on a general "office" PC, but that
proved not to be 100% reliable.
