Gentlemen, Some advance information for anyone who may want an extra Tuner, TBS are soon to release a new PCIe Card Tuner, designed around a new more powerful Chip/Demodulator, its complete with Built On Cooling Fan which is very quiet. Its the TBS-6903X an up-dated and re-designed version of the original. Its been on test now for several months both here and in Europe, and performs extremely well in all conditions, further information will be available soon on the TBS Website. Regards to all, Mike G4CFZ.


GOES 17.

A software glitch means that GOES 17 will not now become operational until early next year. Please see :-


https://www.goes-r.gov/users/transitionToOperations17.html

Please also note that GOES 15 LRIT data on Eumetcast (as now) will cease on 1st January 2019. To compensate GOES 15 data in NetCDF format will be available from 17th December (12th December for Manufacturers etc.) but only on HVS-1.

Regards,
Douglas.


Re: HVS-1

Basic service is all working fine.
I'm trying to get the HVS-1 working but the yellow icon doesn't change so I have a few questions.
Is the Ayecka SR1 as bought through GEO already set up to receive it?
I've downloaded PuTTY to look at the configuration but having connected it to the PC via the USB it says no driver present.
Where can I find a driver for the CP2102 USB to UART Bridge Controller?
==========================

Frank,

The driver issue has been discussed exhaustively recently. The easy answer is to use the SR-1 Console facility mentioned in the EUMETSAT guides, and available for download here:

http://www.satsignal.eu/wxsat/dvb-s2/#sr1-console

That gives you Telnet access which replaces the USB access once the device in on the network. There are notes on the MODCOD settings for BS and HVS-1 here:

Cheers,
David

This is not MSG Data Manager. The difference can be seen when looking at the HRV Image. This is quadratic at the MSG Data Manager. :-)

Thorsten
===============================

Thorsten,

The MSG Data Manager can show a square HRV image if you have selected the "Full" option, but the other HRV settings produce narrower images. EUMETSAT have chosen the default narrower images.

Cheers,

Re: HVS-2

Hi

Has anyone else lost HVS-2 as of about ten minutes ago ?

Regards

Graham
=================================

It seems OK here, but there were some variations today:

https://www.satsignal.eu/mrtg/performance_eumetcast-europe_rx_io.php#t2

Interruptions were announced to the addition of data to EUMETCast Africa, and Metop-A/B global and EARS due to Svalbard maintenance. I don't think that either of those should have affected the HVS-2 though.

Cheers,
David

Hi Douglas

Thanks for that - my signal is great too
Its just that Tellicast is in a permanent connecting state at the moment with no active channels

Regards

Graham
I noticed a red icon as well, but checking as at 12.38 data is flowing correctly. Was it just a small outage I wonder?

Cheers,

James

Philip,

I looked at your screenshot and it looks OK.
Perhaps you could reinstall the full Msg Animator setup again.
After that you install the latest Beta.
And look if that does the trick.

Regards and succes,

Herman

Hi, Thanks to all for helping my setup on to windows10 computer and it is all working wonderfully.
However in MsgAnimator i have no  options in palette whereas before on my other computer i had other options such as LUTLandSea-zw and had lovely animations with colours, yet i have these palette options installed in  the MsgAnimator folder. This also applies to the City list , that is no options available.
Attached is a screenshot of my MsgAnimator folder.
Has anyone any ideas
thanks
Philip

Edit: i think it might be because i havent put my registration key  in , i will see if i can find it

Edit: I entered registration key but still having the same problem

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

Thanks, Douglas. I thought that Meso-1 requests were handled without affecting the routine schedule, but I must have been wrong.

Perhaps announcement 4316 could also have been responsible?
