Thanks for that, Philip.

On the Ethernet 2 properties I turn off everything except IPv4. Not sure whether that's a good idea or not!

and my network information of SR1. Yours will be different but there may be something in there that helps.
Good luck

I hope you are making progress.
I have attached screenshot of my configuration of SR1 and the cast clients file  of BAS and HVS-1. You may be able to find something in there that helps. As you know i receive BAS and HVS-1 through my SR1.

.. but the second NIC and the SR1 must be on the same network, such as 192.168.10.x, and the to addresses must be different in the "x" part.

This has all been written up so many times - I am disappointed that it is occupying so much traffic on the group.

Just checked, and on my single-cable, dual tuner TBS6903 system:

- for TP1 I have "All"

- for TP2 "16APSK2/3"

I don't have a BAS TelliCast taking the TP1 BAS data, that system is just HVS-1 and HVS-2.

Jan,

the only setting that makes sense is 8PSK3/5 for MODCOD of the Basic Service *only* (if you have a marginal SNR and HVS-1 causes a lot of missed packets for Basic too).
In all other cases take all MODCODES. If you have a TBS card taking MODCOD 16APSK2/3 will not work on transponder T1 at all. HVS-1 must *always* be received together
with the Basic Service (even if you do not setup a Tellicast Client for the Basic Service). This is a problem of DMA buffers in the TBS card PCIe bridge. The SR1 has no such
problems. For HVS-2 on T2 EUMETSAT has installed a minimum kind of fake traffic that does the same as Basic on T1: Keeps DMA buffers busy to avoid Tellicast timeouts.

The whole story goes all back to the start of T2 when SR1 users had no problems with receiving HVS-2 while TBS card users had timeouts and could not receive HVS-2.

Hope this helps
Ernst


Re: Configuration File

Alan Curnow
 

Hi Vincenzo,

I am using a similar setup as you with the second network card (actually a USB3 - Gigabit Ethernet module) on the receive PC connected to the SR1 Traffic port and a USB2 cable connected to the SR1 Control port using PuTTY to configure the SR1.

I don't know if you have the most up to date EUMETCast document on the SR1 setup. It's not available from EUMETSat site anymore it seems, and the downloads from other archive sites are old versions. I've uploaded it to Mediafire and you can download it by this link

https://www.mediafire.com/file/ib216ew658atjzy/Ayecka_SR1_DVB_Receiver_EUMETCast_Setup_Guide_v4A.pdf/file

It goes through all the setup stages you've been doing in detail and it seems you have IP addresses for the Management and LAN IP on the SR1 configuration reversed. I have mine set up as on page 11 of the document. Not sure whether this is critical, but I had trouble communicating with my SR1 unless they were set as in the document.

The SR1 doesn't need to know the IP address of the second network card on your PC you're using to connect to the SR1 traffic port. Just the tellicast cast-client_bas.ini and cast-client_hvs-1.ini files need that set in the Parameters/Interface Setting as you've already done. As you've already done all the required IP addresses to talk to the SR1 need to be in the range 192.168.10.xxx. Not sure what the 'Air IP Address' is in the SR1 Network configuration setup, but it's left as in the document, and how you've set it.

Also to receive HVS-1 and the Basic service together you need to modify the MODCODS filter under option H of the SR1 System menu, as detailed on page 14 of the document. By default I believe it may only be enabled for the Basic service to save unnecessary traffic if you aren't using the High Volume Service.

Hope this helps,

Cheers,
Alan



Re: Mode codes for EUmetsat

Alan Curnow
 

For the Basic Service you need MODCOD 8PSK3/5 and for HVS-1 (or HVS-2 on TP2) you need MODCOD 16APSK2/3

Don't know what TBS Card you have but page 15 of the following document should help

https://www-cdn.eumetsat.int/files/2020-07/TBS-6903_6908%20DVB-S2%20Receiver%20EUMETCast%20Windows%20Setup%20Guide.pdf

Re: Pytroll/Satpy and Environment Variable

Ernst Lobsiger
 

Richard,

Some versions back the *name* of the relevant variable was changed from PPP_CONFIG_DIR to SATPY_CONFIG_PATH.
That's all. Before starting a script in the black window this variable must be known. Under GNU/Linux I issue the command
echo $SATPY_CONFIG_PATH
and it says
/home/eumetcast/EMCtools/pppconfig

Under Windows the command (with default install as in the HOWTO 3.0)
echo %SATPY_CONFIG_PATH%
shoud return
C:/EMCtools/pppconfig

I do not see why my instructions should not work for the new name of this variable under Windows.
Just configure an environment variable with this name (and delete the old environment variable).

With satpy.config.set() and satpy.config.get() you leave the comfort zone of most Windows users.

Ernst


Pytroll/Satpy and Environment Variable

rnosborne@...
 

Hello to the Group.
 
I recently installed Pytroll/Satpy on Windows 10 following the instructions given in SatPy_HOWTO_V30.txt kindly provided in this
forum. The Satpy version is 0.29. Everything appears to be working with one exception - the Python scripts do not appear to be 
responding the environment variable PPP_CONFIG_DIR=C:/EMCtools/pppconfig and cannot find the areas.yaml file at this location.
 
To begin, running a script produces the warning 'PPP_CONFIG_DIR' is deprecated. Please use 'SATPY_CONFIG_PATH' instead. I replaced
'PPP_CONFIG_DIR' with 'SATPY_CONFIG_PATH' but it had no effect. Although I am not a programmer by any means, I decided to dig deeper to 
see if I could identify the problem.
 
I consulted the Configuration section of the Satpy documentation but found this extremely difficult to understand. However it did suggest
the use of two runtime methods called satpy.config.get and satpy.config.set which I decided to try. First, I used
satpy.config.get('config_path') on its own and it returned a result of ['C', '/EMCtools/pppconfig'] which looked odd. I then used 
satpy.config.set(config_path='C:/EMCtools/pppconfig') followed by satpy.config.get('config_path') which then returned the result
'C:/EMCtools/pppconfig'. The latter 'set' sequence also allowed the script to correctly locate the areas.yaml file in the pppconfig directory.
 
Have I missed something obvious in setting the environment variable?
 
Richard
 


Re: NOAA- 20 VIIRS

Alan Curnow
 

On Eumetcast I recently subscribed to 

Metop, SNPP and NOAA Global Data Services / GDS-SNPP/NOAA-20 - VIIRS EDR
Regional Data Services / RDS-EARS - EARS-VIIRS

The Global data Services arrived on the Eumetcast Basic service under channel NPP-1. This channel isn't listed as being on the Basic Service as linked by David above and contained the following sample file
 
W_XX-EUMETSAT-Darmstadt,SOUNDING+SATELLITE,NPP+VIIRS_C_EUMP_20210819000322_v2r1_AMV_EDR.BIN     24 files around 250KB in size

The Regional data Services appeared on the HVS-1 service in channel E1H-RDS-1 as shown in the link above. It contains the following file samples

SVDNBC_npp_d20210818_t0119129_e0120371_b50815_c20210818013357000730_eum_ops.h5       Approx 50 files around 4MB in size
SVMC_npp_d20210818_t0110405_e0112047_b50815_c20210818011955000072_eum_ops.h5           Approx 230 files around 40MB in size

I used Satsignal/MSG Data Manager to process the files from the receiving PC as they are listed uder 'Setup' and it transfers the files to the 'Images' folder, the Global Data Services files under 'ATOVS' and the Regional Data Services under 'VIIRS' I had to rename the E1H-RDS-1 channel folder to NPP-2 so than MSG Data Manager could recognize it as it only recognizes VIIRS data under channels NPP-1 , NPP-2 or NPP-3 as far as I can tell. If I'm wrong I'm sure David will put me right. 

I haven't found any programs that display the files yet to show what they contain. VIIRS EDR should be high resolution images according to the NOAA site so am surprised by the small size of the files received.

Cheers,
Alan

You need to ask the person who manages your network, or seek advise from someone with networking knowledge. I cannot guess what IP numbers might be free, or which are allocated to DHCP in your configuration.

The .10 address for the Traffic port, and for your extra LAN card, seem OK.

Firewall

Vincenzo Mone
 

Hello all,
It is a couple of days that I am trying to get but without success the HVS-1 signal. I do not think it is something to do with firewall or antivirus as I get without problems the BAS signal but just for curiosity, I am using the Kaspersky Total Security, is there anybody that use the same and can tell me what to check to be sure that the firewall does not block the HVS-1 reception?
Thanks
