Hi Laia,
search for "Spain" in this group and you will get some more related
info about licenses and needed antennas.

I cannot believe one has to pay 12000 euros to have the license! Do
you know how I can do it or if I just got it wrong?
I would really appreciate any advise.

Re: ramdisk

Guy Martin <agm@...>
 

David,

Many thanks for that explanation. I will obviously want to take some EPS data when the Metops come on stream and that will probably be the time to use a ramdisk. The system works fine just now with MSG and AVHRR, so I will leave well alone for now.

Cheers, Guy

Guy,

Yes, if you want to take something like the full EPS data stream, then I
would strongly recommend a RAMdisk - probably at least 128MB. If you are
happy with MSG-1 (or MSG-2) data, with the AVHRR regional coverage, then
you are probably fine (and indeed, you should already know if you are in
the AVHRR pilot trial). So, in summary:

- if you are OK now, and not intending to take more data, there's no point
in change for change's sake.

- if you doing anything on your PC other than receiving, then I would
recommend a RAMdisk - perhaps sized at around 60MB.

- if you intend to take a full EPS feed, then you do need a RAMdisk -
perhaps 256MB in size or bigger. Those who have tested EPS without a
RAMdisk report segment loss on the MSG data stream. Bear in mind that
there is a lot in the EPS data stream you may not want, and the image data
is perhaps only 30% of the bandwidth.

This is all on the assumption that you are using PID filtering and
recv-channel.ini to minimised the data through the DVB card and the
TelliCast software.

Although I've seen less than a day's EPS data, and it hasn't been full
bandwidth, with a 256MB RAMdisk I've seen no MSG-1 segment loss on an AMD
64 3200+ with 2GB of memory, running reception + MSG Data Manager + AVHRR
Manager. Preliminary - to be updated!

Cheers,
David

Interestingly, the AR Soft RAMdisk retains it sharing here on both Windows
2000 and Windows XP. I have the device set as a RAMdisk, not as an
emulated hard disk.

Folks,
I have collaborated with Gerard on this problem
and the solution might be of interest to others.
At one time a SkyStar USB box had been installed on
the computer but had been removed and installed on a
second machine. When a new SkyStar PCI card was added
to the first machine, and the software installed, the
red T was always obtained. It turned out that the USB
box had been remembered by Windows, even though, as
it was no longer connected, it did not show up on
Windows XP network data. This registry memory was
sufficient to prevent the correct IP address from
being assigned to the new card. Gerard hacked the
registry to remove all references to the USB
box, Windows then permitted the correct IP address
to be assigned to the PCI card, and then everything
worked. Thanks to Arne for posting a comment which
reminded me of the use of ipconfig /all to check IP
addresses (which showed that the PCI card had the
wrong address), and ping showed that the correct
address could not be accessed (USB box not
plugged in).

Best regards - Alan
----------------------------------------------------
Hi Alan,
That's good news and I'm glad you've got it sorted, at
last.
I am planning to "upgrade" from a USB box to PCI card
soon and wonder if you, or Gerard, would be able to
post some details about which registry entries needed
deleting or changing??
Any guidance you could give would be really
appreciated, so we can learn from your experience!!

After reading Arnes post about pinging, I tried to
ping my USB box (at IP address 192.165.238.238) just
out of interest but it failed - all 4 packets were
lost. However, MSG reception is going just fine so I
shall leave well alone!
Hope your reception is "in the pink"!

You can apply as an amateur for a 100euro fee.
You must contact your national licensing agent, that you can find on
eumetsat website ( Home > Access to Data > User Support > Service
Registration )...

Please look at:
http://www.david-taylor.myby.co.uk/wxsat/atovs/EUMETCast-trouble-shooting-guide.html
section B8 !

There is no need to hack the registry.
Uninstall only the Technisat driver,shutdown, unplug/remove skystar,
reboot and check driver. If another driver copy is present, uninstall
en reboot again.

Greetings,
Arne van Belle


Re: ramdisk

a_van_belle
 

The ARsoft Ramdisk can be found in the files area.

Although this version is unsupported and has some limitations, I do
run it without any problems.

Limitations:
Sizes above 128 MB may need additional settings (1024 bytes/sector
instead of the default 512)
When a too large size is set (over 128 MB), it won't load and reports
this in event viewer. I was not able to create a 256MB ramdisk on a 1
GB system, after upgrading to 1,5 GB it does work however.

Greetings,
Arne van Belle

I currently use Ramdisk Plus by Superspeed - but I have noticed one
oddity - for some inexplicable reason the free space reporting is
incorrect.

I use a 200Mb ramdrive ATM with say the update file of around 50Mb - a
fsy file of 37 and that being the total - even will all activity
stopped
and the recycle bin emptied I was getting a free space (by hovering the
mouse over the ramdrive icon) indication of about 56Mb. A few days ago
it suddenly shot back up to 108Mb without me doing anything - so I have
no idea why this should have happened. I have tried e-mailing the
author
but he seems at a loss as well. I half wondered if it was some sort of
memory leak, but seeing as it has righted itself - I'm not sure. I
imagine I am on my own in this experience....
