Subject: [MSG-1] Tellique Latest Software version


Just to report on an installation of the 2.3.1 version.

As one or two others have reported it comes with the e-token software.

The first installation attempt went OK until the last part, and I admit
I failed to note the error message, but it was something like 'couldn't
create the user key'. Checking the rec.ini showed an absence of my user
name and password. Manually entering them didn't produce a working
programme, so I UN-installed and then re-installed and this time it went
OK. It then said the computer needed to be re-booted - accepted it and
on re-starting the computer froze when the icons came up on the task
bar. Did a complete shutdown and then cold re-boot and everything was
fine, and was again this morning.

I have kept the previous installation as they now install in different
directories. One small thing I notice is that hovering the mouse over
the pink 'T' icon shows a 'connecting' statement, whereas the previous
one showed 'connected' when pink. Not sure what others have encountered.
But the data is streaming in and I'm not getting missing segments ATM
from the 4 HRIT channels I usually receive. So seems not to be any less
accurate that way.

Delivery was by DHL the next day from it being sent out. Amazing!

My grateful thanks to the Eumetsat staff.

That's interesting James. Thanks for the talk through. My version
pre-dates MSG with an additional download (from Eumetsat) to deal with the
larger bandwidth of MSG (than EARS)...so it is pretty old. Having said
that I have not had any trouble with it at all so I have no intention to
update. Presumably when the e-tokens are sent (after we have received our
licences) the necessary software for that will be provided separately.

Regards
Douglas.

Missing Segments

Robert Moore
 

Peter, thanks for the suggestion - I have retuned in accordance with your
advice, but it seems to have made no difference.
I recently stiffened the mounting for my dish, so I wonder if recent wind could
actually have moved the dish itself on the pole? Will have to investigate
further over the weekend.
Thanks again
Robert

It would be useful if someone with a newly installed card could post the XP
default settings for the B2C2 Broadband Receiver adapter. As far as I can
recall my setting should be the default other than the TCP Window size.

Peter you can find "DefaultsXP.reg" on the Skystar installation CDROM.

Warning ! Never double click on *.reg files if you don't know what they are
for !

I compared 3 versions of this CDROM, 4.22 , 4.22B and 4.28, all set the
same values.
Below the reg file for XP with the hex values, I added the decimal values
and explanation in (..)

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE&#92;SYSTEM&#92;CurrentControlSet&#92;Services&#92;Tcpip&#92;Parameters]
"SackOpts"=dword:00000001 (= on)
"TcpWindowSize"=dword:0000faf0 (= 64240 bytes)
"Tcp1323Opts"=dword:00000001 (= on)
"DefaultTTL"=dword:00000040 (= 64 =Time To Live in ms)
"EnablePMTUBHDetect"=dword:00000000 (= off)
"EnablePMTUDiscovery"=dword:00000001 (= on)
"GlobalMaxTcpWindowSize"=dword:0000faf0 (= 64240 bytes)

As you see in the key these values do apply to all Tcpip services, so if
you have tweaked your network or internet connection, this can have a
reverse effect on the Skystar !

Changing the parameter "file_database_size"

Changing the parameter "file_database_size" might cause a hangup of the software.
The following steps should be performed for changing this parameter smoothly:

a) Stop the tqrecv-client.
b) Change the parameter "file_database_size" in the recv.ini
(If you omit this parameter, tqrecv uses a default value of 250MB).
c) Delete the directory "receiving" (internal file-database).
d) Start the tqrecv-client.

Have you looked at 1:1. (pre 14.45 today). It does look ok on the

After several days of poor quality channel 5 has returned to normal with the

It seems to have been fixed from the 1445 repeat cycle. Look at the
cloud edges in an earlier image from today.

Has anyone else noticed the dreadful quality of channel 5 in the last few
days (at least).
I normally only take 2,4,5,9 and 12 but have now switched to all HRIT to
check others.
It looks like slippage on alternate scans lines and indeed reminds me of
the
fault that Meteor 3-5 had for so long except in this case it is across the
whole image. (and obviously for completely different reasons !).
Other channels now coming in, but it does appear the quality issue is only
with channel 5.

Re: Tellique Software version?

John Parkins <kvp@...>
 

Hello,

Thanks for the response. It seems there are two version in common use
and both appear to be working.

I asked because Eumetsat kindly sent me what they told me was an
update, to be quite honest I thought I already had the latest version
but apparently not. The version sent is 2.3.1, I had been using 2.3.0a.
Also included on the disk were some files associated with the future
use of the USB dongle.

Anyway great service from Eumetsat, I got the email from them on
Wednesday and the software arrived this morning. Thanks very much both
Pamela and Sally.

John,

I am running 2.3.0a but keep in mind there have been some minor updates
within that version, mainly, as far as I am aware, to do with automation.

Ian.

John,

I run TQ 2.3.1 (Beta ?) at the moment and used 2.3.0a from May up to
September 18th without problems.

With TQ231 the scardsvr.exe process does not leak memory.
TQ230 causes scardsvr.exe to leak 8 bit/minute, but only if no eToken
is inserted.

Both versions do behave the same on my system.
Learned that a fast growing 0.fsy file under tellique&#92;receiving&#92;tmp
does show there is a problem. Normally it grows with a few MB per
hour until the 102.400 kbyte limit is reached, then it is renamed
1.fsy and a new 0.fsy is created.

Did notice that with bad signal conditions this file grows very
rapidly.

Greetings,
Arne van Belle
