Hello Vincenzo,

You probably did the update correctly. But with so many version
numbers it can be confusing.

Eumetsat's update consists of the Skystar/Technisat driver, which most
of us don't need to update as the same version was already included on
the EUMETCast Client Software V4 CDROM.
To check this Rightclick the (hopefully) green Sat Icon in the tray
and choose "About DVB Receiver"
This should list Version 4.3.0 for all instances.

As Douglas mentioned newer versions are available and these might work
perfectly but are not the recommended/tested one.

To check if the recommended EKU-software has been installed correctly,
look in "Add/Remove programs" for "eToken Run Time Environment 3.65"

The Tellicast version is shown in the uppermost "About tc-recv" and
should read 2.4.4 B .......

Greetings,
Arne van Belle

Hi Arne,
what do you mean with:
The telecast version you mention is correct.
4.2.5.4 is the firmware in your EKU, this was not updated.
You mean I did not update it or Eumetsat did not send the update?
Thanks

Are you sure about TechniSat driver version 4.3.2.9999 ??
The version in EUMETSAT's update is 4.3.0.9999
But if it works, don't fix it !

Arne I now belong to the '.. if it works, don't fix it' school of thought. So if everything is currently working OK what are minimum changes I need to
make using the update files? Just EKU software?

Arne the Technisat drivers shown below will probably be correct as I ran
with those drivers for a while. I am now using driver version 4.04.00.9999
which are fine.

Hello Vincenzo,


Are you sure about TechniSat driver version 4.3.2.9999 ??


Looking at the logs...

Ulrich G. Kliegis
 

... can be helpful.
In short: I took my preliminary receiver-computer apart and put a new
machine together. More speed (800 vs. 500 Mhz), more memory (1 G
vs. 768 M), more disk space (250+40 vs. 40 alone). Win2k, brought to
the latest SP state. Reinstalled Technisat drivers, server4PC is
running, Tellique (the well know version), EKU-driver. The dongle-LED
is on, green dot, pink T. RAMDISK 128 MB, rec-channels.ini and rec.ini
set correctly, received-directory fills with MSG-1 files.
Installed MSG-DM (evaluation license for the latest version, 28 days to
go) and AVHRR-M (test license from David), set the directories, hit
start. MSG-DM processes the files present in the received-directory,
deletes them afterwards, the images are stored in the correct place.

So faaaaar, so gooooooood.

Now waiting for the next set of scans. Waiting. Waiting. The yellow
REC-pseudo-LED comes on, but no 'processing ...'. And no new
images in the HRIT etc. dirs. Checked the registry, nothing unexpected.
AVHRR-M lists all the passes for al stations (all checked). But no
processing (of course only those from the canaries). And still nothing
from MSG-1. Changed the whole thing (including rec-channels.ini) to
receive MSG-2. When the green 'LED' in MSG-DM is off, the received-
dir fills with the usual files, but when I set it to 'run' (hitting start), it
empties the received-dir, but does not process them (difference to
starting MSG-DM after received has collected some files).

Now, back to the subject line, a look into th elog files reveals this:

(excerpt, there are tons of this)

Yes, I read the EUMETCAST-FAQs on missing key-symptoms. What
puzzles me is the fact that the files do arrive in the received directory
but can't be decoded then. I'll do the tests recommended by Eumetsat
now, but the mystery remains. Is it one?

Any comments?

Cheers, ciao, tschüß,

U.

Re: Eumetcast software upgrade

a_van_belle
 

In the "Operations_Weekly_Schedule" that I receive per mail you can read:

"On 30 May 2006 EUMETSAT is planning a system upgrade of the EUMETCast
uplink server.
This activity will include a TELLICAST server software upgrade which
optimises the data streams on EUMETCast.
Prior to this upgrade it is planned to make available a new version
of the Tellicast Client software for Linux (v. 2.4.3) and Windows
(v.2.4.4).
For more information please see:
http://www.eumetsat.int/idcplg?IdcService=SS_GET_PAGE&;ssDocName=005961&l=en&ssTargetNodeId=115
"

"Although the currently used Tellicast client version 2.4.0 is
compatible with the new server version, users might experience some
minor losses, in particular on the DWDSAT channel. In order to avoid
or reduce DWDSAT data losses, parameters on the DWDSAT channel will be
changed temporarily to give users sufficient time for the client
software upgrade. This parameter change increases availibility at the
expense of timeliness of the DWDSAT data and will therefore be
maintained only for a 2-week period after 30th May.

EUMETSAT recommends that users upgrade the Tellicast Client software."

Again there is no need to update the Skystar software !

Arne van Belle

Alan, when the upgrade was announced on the Operations_Weekly_Schedule (OPS)
there was a link provided with a full explanation for the upgrade.
I have included the link below (watch for wrapping).

<http://www.eumetsat.int/idcplg?IdcService=SS_GET_PAGE&;ssDocName=005961&l=en&ssTargetNodeId=115>

When the EPS service starts there will be a massive increase in data flow
with an increase in channel numbers probably from the few we have at the
moment to well over 20. Some of the new channels will probably have
bandwidths well in excess of our current channel 2.

Regards
Douglas.

Hi Arne, James & group,
I have also just managed to complete the upgrade
installation and did wonder about this aspect (Windows
service for Tellicast) - but not knowing much
(anything) about it I didn't select it!
It would be good to hear any learned opinion on this.

I would suggest to anyone who hasn't yet done the
upgrade to read, carefully, all the various readme
files and do the upgrades in the order :- Skystar
driver, EKU and lastly Tellicast.
I can't rememer who first posted that advice but
thanks - I'm sure it saved me some hastle.

After reading the mail about the problems with the
"normal" RAM disk being possibly too small, I have
reverted back to the hard disk for the receiving
folder, temporarily.

One immediate improvement I can see is that the
TelliCast throughput graph now displays correctly
without having to minimise the page and then restore
it! But that's only a small thing. I'm sure there are
lots of improvements that will become clear later on.
Thanks to Eumetsat for distributing the upgrade this
way - a great idea.
regards
Nigel

What to install from the Update

a_van_belle
 

Please note that the Skystar 4.3.0 driver and Technisat software have
been added to the update file to provide a complete software package
with the same content to the CD provided by EUMETSAT.

But only the TELLICAST client and the EKU software have been updated
to a newer version. The Skystar/Technisat software does not need to be
upgraded unless you use and older version than 4.3.0 and do experience
problems.

Greetings,
Arne van Belle


Re: I confess... I confess

a_van_belle
 

I can confirm James, the update just came in on my testpc.
The 0.fsy file was stretched to 33.5 MB, but this PC does not receive
the MSG2 trail data.
The file_database_size was set at 50 000 000 bytes.

My regular receive PC which is still using a 25 Mb ramdisk did not
receive the update.

At this moment I think that those who use a RAM disk (and do not take
the MSG2 trial data) should set it to 45 MB or more.

And a warning to those that use a firewall (that does include Windows
XP SP2), your updated Tellicast and Technisat files are treated as new
programs. You have to unblock Server4PC and tc-recv.exe again !
Windows XP SP2 users go to Control Panel, Security Center, Windows
Firewall, Exceptions and add these programs again.

Greetings,
Arne van Belle

I would have probably got it this morning but forgetting to restart the

Hello Lawrence,

The update files breaching the limit of the RAM disk was not foreseen.

You can enlarge the RAM disk to about 60 Mb using the control panel
AND editing the line "File_database_size=59000000"
A reboot is required.

You could also decide not to use the RAMdisk for a while as we don't
know what the optimal size is for allowing the update through yet not
to waste memory.
Out of interest Arne I managed to receive the transmission this afternoon - just! There was about 10Mb left in the ramdisk as the fsy had inexplicably risen to over 30Mb.

I followed the installation instructions and all is running well again. I would have probably got it this morning but forgetting to restart the AVHRR manager resulted in a full ramdisk and cessation of operations!!

Quite a few new things in the read-me to ponder including data flow configuration and the question of whether there is there any advantage in having it as a Windows service.

Cheers

R: Re: Tellicast stopped after Update

Giuseppe Cico
 

I have just updated... and now new releases are running.
Vincenzo... any firewall active blocking Tellicast?
A first start my Norton Security notifies me that new T. wanted to acces a
network... I answered it was ok...
It's a new software, so maybe this is the problem...

Yes Arne,
What I've done when I received the exe file.
I ran it into a directory and I found in the directory I created:
Folder called: Licence_cd_v5_0_18-05-2006.
In this folder the three folder as the cd I received from Eumetsat.
I made the update of all the programs contained into the folder
Windows how suggested in the various text files.
The only problem I've noticed and maybe that could be the problem stopping
the Tellicast ( it is red ) is this:
When I run the file called start in the folder
Licence_cd_v5_0_18-05-2006&#92;Windows&#92;Skystar_4_3_0_a.
I get the message that the pc have to be rebooted or to reboot later.
I said to reboot.
After rebooted the installation becomes again but after I get again the
warning which ask to reboot.
So I said to reboot later.
Ran the tellicast the T becomes Yellow and after a while becomes pink but
just after a couple of seconds it becomes red.
Please any help?
Thanks

Did you reboot your system after updating ?
Can you open the HTML shell ?(rightclick on the T in the tray)
Check the last log entry in Tellicast (or in file recv.log) for a
possible cause.

The Linux update is a Gunzip compressed TAR archive, this will not
install on Windows Guiseppe, so it is not likely that the wrong update
file was choosen.

Good luck,
Arne van Belle

Hi to the list,
I've done the update of the token key and the tellicast
from the zip file received in the received directory
but since I made it, the T in the tray becomes red.
Has anybody have the same problem?
How to solve it?
Should I go back and degrade it again?
Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks
Enzo

Hello Lawrence,

The update files breaching the limit of the RAM disk was not foreseen.

You can enlarge the RAM disk to about 60 Mb using the control panel

A reboot is required.

You could also decide not to use the RAMdisk for a while as we don't
know what the optimal size is for allowing the update through yet not
to waste memory.
Edit your recv.ini and place a # at the beginning of the line
"file_database_directory=Z:&#92;receiving" and "file_database_size=...."
In recv.channels.ini add a # at the beginning of the line
"temp_directory=Z:&#92;receiving/tmp"
This makes Tellicast use the default file locations without limiting
sizes.
Stopping and restarting Tellicast is sufficient to activate this change.

Good luck,
Arne van Belle

Re: Tellicast Update

Nick Norman <nick@...>
 

Just completed the update here all 100% as far as I can see, signal strength
down but it's blowing a hooley here so I'll be on the roof at the week-end I
think.

Did it in the order, Skystar driver, EKU and then Tellicast

Good luck all

Nick

p.s. if you delete the update files, they get replaced by tellicast.

Lawrence,
I'm at work, but if I remember you'd find ramdisk in control panel, then
doubleclick and set new size, then reboot...
Sw package is in the MSG-1 group files area as "AR-Soft-RAMdisk.zip".
