Oggetto: Re: [MSG-1] Driver card Tbs 6903

Greetings to the group I have to install on the system wndovs 10 the tbs
6903 tab On the website tbs are downloadable 2 types of drivers. one is named 1.0.0.5 windows, and the second windows 10 equal version 1.0.0 5 Who uses tbs 6903 which more stable drivers has installed?
Thanks if anyone can answer me


Best regards


Stephen
=====================================

Stephen,

I may have "TBS6903 Windows Driver V1.0.0.5". As a check, the setup.exe and
most of the other files are dated: 10/01/2017. The files in "TBS6903
Windows 10 Driver" appears to be later. Your guess is as good as mine!

I use the BDADataEx software as the TBS IP Tool (?) has never been bug-free for me.

Try here:

Exactly Douglas!
I named the channel E2H-TPG-01 in channels ini instead of E2H-TPG-1.
Doh!
Thanks for your reply

Hi David

It was your last point were the problem is, ever since the last two windows 10 updates I now have network problems between the receiving PC and the main processing PC. GOES ABI Manager is working perfectly in between my network issues which I am trying to sort out, so thank you for your help as usual.

Donald Martin
=======================================

Donald,

Yes, there have indeed been some issues. One is that "Password protected sharing" can get set, where it was previously unset, another that you may require to address a node by its IP address rather than node name.

The latter seems to be rather an on-off symptom, some have suggested editing the etc\hosts file to ensure that the network path to the remote PC is known rather than relying on Windows services to provide the name to IP mapping. I'm hoping the services may be fixed on the next monthly update. One other issue since the 1803 version update is that you may need to enable SMB v.1 if you want to talk to some Linux boxes (e.g. Raspberry Pi) or older Windows versions.

Cheers,
David

Douglas,

Thanks for the link to MTG information.

Mmmm, 4 transponders via 2 satellites by 2026.
Of course dual LNB's on one dish is a possibility.

John.

Hi David and all

I have installed David`s GOES ABI Manager and setup as per the instruction text with the program, when I run the program it finds :

OR_ABI-L1b-RadF-M3C02_G16_s20182080430391_e20182080441158_c20182080441202-120000_0.nc

And skips the unwanted bands then:

And no files are process by the program, the only thing I have not set is "Select GeoSatSignal job number". Any ideas as to what is wrong or have I miss some thing simple. Any help would be appreciated thanks

Donald Martin
===================================

Doesn't ring an immediate bell, Donald. My settings (for you to try) are:

- GOES-16
- JPEG
- Short image names
- all bands
- all job numbers 0

Does the program have delete access to the Source path, and write access to the Saved NetCDF files and Saved image files path?

Cheers,
David

Re: EUMETCastView set-up problem

Hugo  Ahhh wonderful.    Hadn't  loaded the Resources tles .  I was only set-up for Channel 2 imaging at the time
and tried to go directly to a CODA download without realising they were not loaded.  Can confirm problems with trying to delete the prog and
trying to re-install.   Thanks,    John.

Re: Signal

geojohnt@...
 

John,

My sheltered patio mounted dish (and our 10 degree facing dishes) get a lot of sunshine on them for a large part of the day and my grey pained dish is far too hot to touch at midday - the black Iverto LNB very hot also.

However we had a couple of cloudy days last week and the dish and LNB were 'cool' with an ambient temperature of 30 degrees and the same 'SNR problem' occurred.
So I don't think it's a 'dish/LNB temperature' problem.

For me at least - and some others, there are two issues, lower overall average level of SNR for 2 + months now, and 'considerable' stepping/jumps up and down of the (lower) SNR during the day.

My view is that the satellite signal path - up and down -  is through a volatile atmosphere at this time of the year.

We shall see, later?

Regards,
John.

I have been not using msg data manager for about 8 weeks but its been running and i have just returned to the software and found no data received since mid May. I wonder if my satellite dish has moved and as just checking what degrees is MSG-4 when aligning. Can someone remind me please. I can only find msg-3 position which was 9.2E. I hope thats the problem or my ayrecka sr1 may have a fault. I have not touched the settings in msg data manager or the SR1 controller settings.
many thanks

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

Please don't multi-post.

Nothing has changed, Philip. The satellite you are receiving is Intelsat 10E, at 10 East, not direct from MSG themselves.

What does the Ayecka show (login or Java app)? Signal received? Is there a green or red LED above Lock 1?

What does the TelliCast HTML Shell show?

What colour is the TelliCast icon?

Cheers,
David

Re: EUMETCastView set-up problem

Hugo
 

Hello John,

You need to download the TLE's for Sentinel-3. In 'Set Preferences' - 'TLE Sources' a line as 'http://celestrak.com/NORAD/elements/resource.txt' will download
a list of resource satellites when pushing the button 'Update TLE's' on the 'Satellite Setup' screen. The list must also be visible in the 'TLE Files' list of the same screen.
I will add a warning when the list is not found. A crash is not very friendly ...

grts,

Hugo

EUMETCastView set-up problem

g3pha.morris@btinternet.com
 

Greetings Hugo, I have just downloaded and installed the latest version of the programme
but have encountered a problem when trying to " Download available segments from Schub / CODA"


A message stating     Assertion failed !    appears :-

File:../../EUMETCastView-master/QSgp4/qtle.cpp,Line134

Expression:!m_strName.is Empty0

I cannot access the programme again to check settings  and pressing  the Abort or Retry or Ignore buttons has no effect.
I suspect that I have missed a setting somewhere but not sure which. Have compared the settings on another pc and thought similar.   
Any help you can give much appreciated.          Regards,    John

Thanks for the suggestion Thorsten, but David has resolved the issue at the source.

Hi Ferdinand,

my NDVI files are processed. But I don't use the Tellicast default directory scheme.
All files for processing with MSG Data Manager go to a single folder. (G:\Raw)
Mapping Channel 8 data to another Folder may help:
[channel]
name=EUMETSAT Data Channel 8
target_directory=\EUMETCast\received\EUMETSAT_Data_Channel_4

Cheers,
Thorsten

The MSG Data Manager processes all incoming MPEF files and places them
correctly in the destination directory as defined. However, the NDVD and
NDVI files that come in via data channel 8, are transferred as they are
(RAW) to the Data-channel-8 directory (not in the yyyy/mm/dd tree).
Is this an error on my side or are these files not being handled and
processed as regular MPEF files?
