XP Q322011

David J Watson <djw@...>
 

For info, I downloaded several MS XP Pro updates today which included
the above, and the Tellique software refused to connect to the DVB card
It would occasionally grab a few bytes, mainly after a full reboot.
The Icon remained yellow.

I've just rolled back the installation, first by chance taking out the
above mod to the Fax viewer ( I believe ) and all is back to normal.

For info

Dave (Leicester)


Re: XP Q322011

Hugh Marnoch <marnoch@...>
 

I did the same yesterday, thankfully since I don't have pc based fax I didn't
feel the need to install that particular patch, lucky me :)
Thanks for the heads up though.

Hugh

MSGDatamanager -> Processing older data than today

Maik Dobbermann <maik.dobbermann@...>
 

Hi David,

at the moment i try to generate some quicklooks out of some older msg data
(from some month ago) with your MSGDatamanager (which also processes
quicklooks for each incoming pass)
As i view the "logs"-tab in your program is see the following message:
"Skipped - data is older than current data".

Is there a way to disable this "feature" and so process older data than the
actual / last processed?

Or am i missing something?


Thanks for your answer,
Maik


Re: MSGDatamanager -> Processing older data than today

Maik Dobbermann <maik.dobbermann@...>
 

Ah, sorry. I am doing some tests here.. therefore the false date.

But the problem i described happened on a different computer.

Looking at your message's posting date and comparing that to my
calendar, I see a discrepancy. Maybe my calendar is wrong, but maybe
your system date is even more out of range, and maybe that could be a
reason for your prob?

Re: TechniSat SkyStar 2 PCI card and USB Box software update.

johnrigsec@...
 

All,

Sorry if this is a duplicate posting to you all, but I have not seen a
further posting
from myself some days ago on the matter in my mail box.

TechniSat gave me the link <A HREF="http://www.t-data.lu/">www.t-data.lu</A> specifically for information on and
to
download version 4.2.8 of their software for the above products.

Also they asked me to point out that they would be pleased to have feedback
from
users as to what they thought of the software and any options users would
like to
see added to future updates.
Of course, I suspect, we use the products quite differently to most users

I understand that there appears to be a restriction on the download speed -
for
people on broadband Internet access, so I have notified TechniSat.

Regards,
John Tellick.
RIG.

John,

At least two people tried the new drivers and found problems with them.
Please see the messages in the MSG-1 group, September 04, from John
Parkins and Ferdinand Valk.

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/MSG-1/

My current recommendation is to stick with the existing drivers until
drivers proven by Eumetsat are released......"if it ain't broke, don't fix
it!".

Cheers,
David


Disabling the "Smart Card" service - have you needed to do this?

David J Taylor GM8ARV 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 🇪🇺
 

Folks,

One thing that both Arne van Belle and I have observed is that the
PC with the Tellique software gradually runs out of memory, and it
seems to be the process scardsvr.exe which is leaking memory. We
have both set the "Smart Card" service to Startup = Disabled to fix
this. I am running Windows 2000 Server, SP3.

Is there anyone else who has needed to do this? I ask because this
service will be needed for the USB eToken to work.....

Thanks,
David


Re: Disabling the "Smart Card" service - have you needed to do this?

Guy Martin <agm@...>
 

I disabled this service, not because I had problems but because I see no point in wasting memory on services I don't need. Having said that my Tellique software has worked perfectly since installation, longest time on continuous is 18 hrs.

Cheers, Guy

David, I am running Windows XP and can't find under the processes running list any reference to scardsvr.exe . Is this purely a Windows 2000 issue I wonder, or does the exe have a different name?

Channel alignment issues

David J Taylor GM8ARV 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 🇪🇺
 

This message was originally posted ny Alan Sewards in the SatSignal
group, on 2003 August 31:

-----------------------------------------------------------
David,
Today I was trying to use GSS (4.0.4.392) to look at the source
of the latest forest fire threatening us(!) when I ran into a
problem with the registration of the country boundary map and the
image, especially when I used "Fires". I observed that on the
Remapped image, the country boundary (in this case the coast) was
displaced to the south east of the true coast by about 0.2 degrees.
But the interesting thing was the that the red dot of the fire was
also displaced by about the same amount! The image ended up showing
the plume of smoke issuing from a different place from the red area
showing the hotspot. It seems as though there is a discrepancy
between the registration of the various images. I was originally
using the Channel 1 image for visible, but also tried using channel
12n, in case that registered differently, but it was the same.
I'm happy to say that the combined efforts of the firemen,
Canadair water bombers and various helicopters (including the big
Russian one) succeeded in mastering the fire about lunchtime.

Best regards - Alan
-----------------------------------------------------------

Alan,

I moved this to the MSG-1 list as I don't think it's a software
issue. I looked at the 1500 images from 2003 Aug 31, and tried a
number of ways of comparing them. As channel 4 is processed to a
negative image, and channels 1 and 2 are positive images, I found
that just using the image arithmetic function in Paint Shop Pro to
add the images together gave a easy way to judge the relative
position by eye. This also bypasses any effect of software
remapping errors (although these would be consistent from channel to
channel).

Adding either the channel 1 or the channel 2 image to the channel 4
image showed a quite distinctive edge effect with one image being
displaced relative to the other. I can only guess that this is one
of the side effects when Eumetsat say the "image quality may be
disturbed". There was nothing in the Admin report for the next day,
though. I tried to see if the edge effect differed over the image,
to see if there was a mapping size error, or whether there was
constant offset over the whole image, but I didn't find enough data
to check this. Perhaps using an image from earlier in the day might
show something?

I also tried the same test - adding channels 1 and 4 - on the 1500
cycle from today (2003 Sep 08) and the edge effect had disappeared -
so presumably the images are now in better alignment.

So the effect you saw was indeed real - channel 4 was correctly
mapped but not channel 1!

By the way: I cannot currently get channel 12 (HRV) to accurately
align with the published geolocation data, and I'm waiting to see if
this improves when the satellite moved from its present 10W position
to the new 3-4W position. There seems to be a non-linearity in the
alignment, not just simple gain and offset errors.

Cheers,
David

I don't know, James. Perhaps Windows 2000 incorrectly starts it,
when it's not needed?

Luca Bertagnolio <lucaberta@...>
 

I too am running Win2000, SP4 Professional in my case, and the Smart
Card service is running without any particular issue on my P3 850
which runs 24/7 both Tellique and WXtoImg for APT reception. I have
never noticed any slowdown, and the machine is rebooted only if Bill
Gates' engineers force me to do it!

David, you might try to see if RAM2Free solves this issue for you, it
helps me quite a bit with my work laptop which has a small amount of
RAM:

Let me know if this small utility is helpful to you.

Bye, Luca

If you type in scardsvr.exe into a Google search it appears to be a Windows 2000 prog to do with smartcard readers - unless you have the version generated by Scardsvr32.exe in your system32 directory which is a 'worm'.

I would be concerned if we ultimately needed that for the USB dongle as it doesn't appear to be an XP prog.

James

Thanks, Luca. I actually have SP3, not SP4, and Server rather than
Professional, so there are differences. Thanks for the pointer to
Ram2Free, but we are talking gross memory leaks here, using up all
the memory, so I don't think it will help in this case.

1015 repeat cycle - 2003 Sep 08

David J Taylor GM8ARV 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 🇪🇺
 

Yesterday's 1015 repeat cycle had a number of missing lines at the
top of the image on some channels. This was due to a ground segment
problem. Eumetsat are aware of this so there is no need to report
it further. The information on the missing lines will go into the
admin message today.

Cheers,
David


SkyStar 2 software update - apparent restriction on download speed.

johnrigsec@...
 

All,

TechniSat tell me they had not imposed a speed restriction on downloading the

SkyStar 2 version 4.2.8 software experienced by some at <A HREF="www.t-data.lu">www.t-data.lu</A>.

It was caused by a considerable number of people accessing the site at the
same
time.
