Thank you for your kind suggestions, David !
I have managed to get installed the S2 configuration. S1 will be gone soon, so why bother with the S config.
When checking status via Putty link with S2 data is shown. It also says "choice timeout"
Is this the reason for my problem ? If so, how to overcome it ?
All lan settings etc have been doublechecked by me. Yet, still no visible data via the SR1, although during daytime I got abt. 100-150 blocks per minute. Red T sometimes improving to yellow.
Firewalls checked, too. So antivirus.
It seems to be a "case" for a teamviewer friend, I think. A true challenge - anyone volunteering ?
Otherwise there will be soon a cheap SR 1 on Ebay. I myself most certainly am getting fed up with the "so easy" installation eating my sleep for nothing !
I look forward to your further assistance.
Regards,
Roland

(use WXtrack of
your favourite site to compare the pointing directions from your own
location).
For the initial first orientation, I've found that using Google Maps' satellite view can
be very helpful. Get the correct bearing for the satellite and point from your
antenna's position in that direction. Find an object on the line that you can easily
identify from the antenna's mounting point.

Sometimes, it is easier to use a 90° angle, derived from the satellite's bearing. You
can adjust the outer borderline of your dish to that auxiliary fix point.

Of course, this is not the best technique if the dish is mounted where no one can
firmly stand.

As a last step, always optimize the LNB's skew angle. That will work wonders on
youd dB reading.

Cheers,
U.

Hello everybody,

So i make small console util SS2XPFIX.exe, which fix ts mode registers and allow receive DVB-S2 BS without lost.

Need run one time after driver start (on system start, before DVB-MPE application).

Latest BDADataEx with SS2 eXpress HD:

http://crazycat69.narod.ru/sattelite/DVBDataEx/BDADataEx-SS2XP-MPE.png
So we have only BS traffic, no stream discontinues.

Look like Quality= SNR*6, same signal with TBS6983:

30.11.2014, 17:12, "Felix Kamphuis felixkamphuis@yahoo.com [MSG-1]" <MSG-1@yahoogroups.com>:

Last friday afternoon I tried to switch to DVB-S2, but got very frustrated.
I have to climb on a ladder to adjust the dish. It felt like a useless
exercise.
I use a Technisat SkyStar 2 eXpress HD PC-card under Windows 7 and was very
content about the excellent DVB-S reception from Eurobird 9E.
I can make very nice animations with Satsignal software from David Taylor.
A Golden Media Digital Universal Single LNB GM-201 is conected to the dish.
Strong signal and hardly any missing segments (except being under a heavy
thunderstorm).
According to Technisat this DVB card is suitable for DVB-S2 reception (see
their website). The card is also mentioned inО©╫Eumetsat migration guide.
I entered the new satellite parameters (and PID's) for Eutelsat 10E into
the EPG database (add satellite) and switched to Eutelsat 10E. I got the
following findings.
Without adjusting the dish the signal fell from 100 to 35%, SNR fell from
14,8 to 4,8 dB.
I noticed that tc-recv.exe recognised the new signal (pink T-icon), with
short outages every 1 or 2 seconds, as did the DVB receiver (short switches
from lock to out-of-lock).
After adjusting the dish (80 cm) a little, signal quality rose to (max.) 64%
and SNR to 10,3 dB, acceptable but clearly much weaker than Eurobird 9E.
What really frustrated me was, that the short outages continued and that I
hardly received any segments.
So for the time being I was forced to switch back to Eurobird 9E.Does anyone have a solution to solve this problem?


Re: BDAData

Dear Mike,
thanks for the response and I did know that BDAD was primarily written for USB devices it was
just that I thought nothing ventured etc.
BDAD recognised the 6925 and after a few jiggles with the setup boxes data appeared to flow but to
nowhere !
David has given a few suggestions so I will have a play later on during the week as other tasks
require my attention.
If it works I will post the details
Pete


Re: BDAData

Peter Stein
 

Hi,
thanks David I will try the newer version and make sure that the Tellicast .ini is configured
as you suggest. I have read that BDAD software seems to handle the data better and with less dropouts.
Just wanted to prove it for myself.
The amount of 'good' images that come through outweighs the dropouts be we are never satisfied.

Michele,
sure with 80 dish and lnb 0.7 you can not find the transponder.
considers that with all that I've done (it would be better still a dish from 120 to 140 but is too expensive in Italy relatively to 100 cm. and on the roof, I'm afraid for the wind) the signal is just enough, we do not have to sell ... for the antenna installer, if you can do it yourself you do not spend, but I assure you that with the professional tool is a job fast and accurate. if you want to write me directly please do not hesitate.

=================================

With a good LNB, and a 71 cm dish, we were able to get 10.9 dB Es/No from a carefully aligned system located near Guildford in southern England. Looking at the footprint on the EUMETSAT page:

http://www.eumetsat.int/website/wcm/idc/idcplg?IdcService=GET_FILE&dDocName=IMG_EUTELSAT_10A_KU_BAND_COVER&RevisionSelectionMethod=LatestReleased&Rendition=Web

suggests that the signal in Italy should be similar to that in Guildford, so an 80 cm dish with a good LNB should pick up the DVB-S2 service. It does require very careful alignment, as the difference between the present 9A service and the new 10A service is about one degree (use WXtrack of your favourite site to compare the pointing directions from your own location). Very careful adjustment is required, and that includes rotating the LNB for best Es/No and, if you can, adjusting the focus as well. Start with the DVB-S service, and move the dish very gradually, perhaps looking with your DVB-S receiver for a strong DVB-S signal coming from 10A. There have been a number of suggestions on the group already about which service to try.

Admittedly easier when the dish is on a stand in the garden, than when it is on the roof!

Ciao,
David

Good news, bad news.

sounds to me you have a Hard Drive Failure
Mike,
you seem to have visionary diagnostic skills... :)

After unplugging the SATA controller, Windows restarted correctly. So, the source
of the problem could already be circled. Just strange that the Acronis recovery
program ran on this same controller. To be found out. Yes, DR-DOS is not
windows.

I'll check the SATA drives extacorporally on a different system for irregularities.

The bad news is that I acted too fast when attempting to recover drive C: and
obviously overwrote a functioning, pretty up to date system with a buggy backup.

Good news: Although the dexatek-usb-dvb-receiver drivers were purged in that
chaotic action, the Technisat board still works. Just can't fill the SATA disks at this
time, but...

The Tellicast icon turned immediately to it's preferred pink state when I plugged in
the LNB's output to the Technisat board. Watching the graphics was prevented by
the blocking of the java runtime plugin, though. And I haven't figured out where to
get it, just warning signs where it is supposed to be.

My Eumetcast CD is pretty aged too, from the first days of the service. Is it
recommendable to look for an update? I can't remember to have read about it here,
but then, my reading habits have changed a bit too due to other topics.

Cheers,
U.

The limit of 3.2Gb (slightly less) is a function of 32 bit windows

Re: Correct requirements

Hi Folks,
I ordered the AYECKA SR1 and I'm waiting for me to arrive. I currently use
60 cm dish with two LNB which
one is connected to the EUROBIRD 9 and the other is connected to HOTBIRD
13.
I want to know what size should be the dish in order to receive both
satellites without problems.
Also please the cable to use will be OK if it is the same as the televisions
one or I need special cable?

I would also like to know if there is a block with 2 LNB and 2 outputs in
order to have the same configuration as before.
Any help will be really appreciated

Enzo,

I can only answer one of your questions: good quality satellite TV cable will be fine.

Hi,

I would like to try BDAData but I am having difficulty in getting the Tellicast client to recognise
the data flow can anyone give me any tips on what to do ?

Pete
================================

Pete,

Make sure that the IP address of the card is correct, and that the interface_address in the TelliCast recv.ini is set to 0.0.0.0.

Getting the virtual card IP address can be frustrating. Note any warnings from the BDADataEx software about IP address. It may be set to 10.100.10.10, and you may need to set the card to have DHCP enabled. There is a newer version of BDADataEx than you are using - possibly here:

Re: TBS 5925 experience

Hi Orlando, thanks for your reply. I live in Rome and the snow is very rare here :) Do you advise me to call an antenna installer? The doubt about the box was born when I saw that the strength of the signal (56%) doesn't change even if I move the dish (80 cm). My LNB is a universal LNB with a noise figure of 0.7 dB.

I tried to adjust by hand but I could not reach the maximum gain (-65dB).
I also have to say a big thank to Mr. J.Pierre that directed me immediately

Re: BDAData

Pete, the BDADataEx is really only for the TBS-5925 USB Box, but others have tried it with some units, I suggest you go to the TBS Website at tbsdtv.com/downloads and get the latest software and make sure you install all files in the Drivers File inc the dpinst file for which ever system you run ie 32/64bit, also on W7 dont forget the Firewall Adjustments and even maybe the Command Line, hope that helps.

Re: TBS 5925 experience

Hi Ian, you are right: it is not a card but a box :) At this point I don't know what the problem is. I installed the 2.0.0.4 tbs drivers and the BDADataEx v.20141107 on a Win XP PC. The BDADataEx sw showed me a signal strength of about 56% with quality 0% (I have a strength of about 47% and a quality of about 70% with the DVB S card). I tried to move the dish but nothing changed. Any suggestion?

Subject: [MSG-1] TBS 5925 experience

Dear all,
I write this post in order to share my experience with the TBS5925 card.
Nowadays I receive the Eumetcast data with DVB S skystar card without any
problem. The PC works on XP. Last week I bought a TBS 5925 card and I tried
with a colleague to configure it. The result was very frustrating because we
were unable to setup it neither with the TBS IP tool nor with the
BDADataEx. Both the applications show a signal strength of about 56% which
doesn't change even if I move the dish from east to west. At the end I
decided to buy the SR1 card and try a reimbursement for the TBS ones. I
share this, hoping that no one has to make my mistake. Moreover I'd like to
ask you if there are any known problems with the SR1 card and if it is
possible to use it with the USB port.
