Re: Digest Number 114

I'm new here and as APT is due toe be phased out 'soon' I am
thinking may be I need to move into the 21st century ;-/

Not until at least 2010, I believe...


Will this wonderful stuff run under Linux? There is a driver for
the technisat DVB card available ( I am sure I saw one somewhere in
the last kernel source I downloaded) however I'm not a bit basher!!

I saw somewhere that the teleque (sp?) software would run on 'all'
OSs including Linux

I understand there are still some issues with Telliqeue and Linux -
possibly the eToken support? See John Tellick's recent posting. My
stuff doesn't use anything special, so it should run under
Linux/Wine, but I haven't tested that.

In any case, Windows will be around for a long time yet, so I don't
see any reason to move, to be honest. In my tests, I have found
Linux to be a hotbed of incompatibilities compared to Windows....

Cheers,
David

I have downloaded WaveLet Transform Software from Eumetsat web site
but I discovered that is compileable with Microsoft Visual C++

Do you know if is available an equivalent tool running on LINUX
platform or compileable vith c++ or g++ under LINUX ??

TELLIQUE INI files

erick_nuwendam <erick_nuwendam@...>
 

Hi All,

I have just setup MSG PC with DVB card locked on
HotBird13E

I used EUMETSAT documentation TD15 for setting up telllicast
but it is not very clear.

Is there some genereic .INI files that can be used
for images reception from MSG ?

Many thanks,
Erick

I'd be interested in other people's comments. I have tried to make
the sequence staggered, but perhaps I am being overly cautious?

I've often started tqrecv before the Technisat software has started. It
sorts itself out. This is W2000 SP2.

Regards
Sam

What I also tried at one point was staggering the sequence from a
command file, with a five second gap, but I don't think the command
I was using to create the gap (CHOICE with a timeout) worked under
Windows 2000 (yes, it should do), or there was some issue about
Server4PC not working from the command-line or something.

Re: MSG-1 reception

Alan Sewards <alan.sewards@...>
 

Right from the start, if I had problems with the Tellique part of the chain,
I found that I had to shut down the PC, wait 15 seconds or so, and then
restart if I wanted the Tqrecv client icon to change colour from yellow to
purple within a few seconds of loading. A normal restart did not work! I
never had to turn off the power to the PC though. Between the SkyStar
software and the Tellique, there seems to be something on the card which
does not get properly reset with a normal restart, and the shut down is
required to do the trick.

Best regards - Alan

So, to answer your question :
The message is always do a full power-off
reboot when recovering from lost images?
I would suggest that the ideal answer is yes, and ensure it's a
proper switch-off, not just a polite request via the front-panel
button

Dave M
To restate the obvious, if this problem affects you:

- Do a proper software shutdown first.
- Then power off at the mains switch.
- Wait e.g. until any lights on the back of the PC are out.
- Then restart.

Re: MSG-1 reception

Dave Martin <Dave.Martin@...>
 

Robert - it *may* not (just) be a case of letting the hardware cool, but also a case of ensuring everything is switched off and letting all the supplies discharge down to zero so that everything genuinely resets when you switch on again.

The on/off button on most modern PCs is no longer the "big red switch" but is merely a signal-input to the power management chip inside the PCs PSU, which never fully switches off (refer threads elsewhere about 25 watt consumption whilst PC is "off"). This is because most many PCs are geared for "wake on LAN" and some even "wake on keyboard press" and as a result they can keep network adapters and the PCI bus powered up even when the PC is ostensibly "off" (and as far as the PC is concerned, your Technisat card is a network interface).

Whoops - I used the word 'cold' loosely. I simply meant that I turned the power
off and left the PC for ten minutes. My card has never run at anything other
than very slightly warm. Thanks for this David. The message is always do a full

Yes earlier today - but I did it again tonight and it has done the
trick! I let the PC go cold.

That _maybe_ suggests you need more cooling for the card, or simply
that it doesn't recover properly from lack of signal.


- are your drivers the V4.2.2 release?

I am using the drivers provided when I first acquired software
earlier in the year. No problems so far ..... but, how do I check
driver release, can not find the drivers on the Tellique disk
(presumably buried in the Setup)?

Right-click My Computer
Properties
Hardware
Device Manager (or any other way to execute the Device Manager)
Network Adapters
B2C2
Double-click or right-click properties
Driver tab
Driver version should be 4.2.1.9999

or check the properties of SykNET.sys in &#92;Windows&#92;System32&#92;Drivers,
mine reads 4.2.2.9999 and is dated 4 June 2002. Consistent version
numbers, aren't they?

No

- is there a minimum of active processes running on the RX PC?

PC dedicated to MSG-1. No other software running except Norton anti-virus which
fires up once a day to scan C: drive. No firewall. Have removed Norton - PC only
connected to hub which connects to main PC which has full protection.

- did you start the TQRECV process after the Server4PC process had
stabilised?

Yes
