Also recommend Ebuyer, prices are good, delivery is swift and cheap,

Dabs are good also but the gits want 25 to deliver anything to me.

So with Meteosat-8 at its operational 3.4W position (according to
very recent Kepler data), is anyone seeing co-channel interference
between the two satellites, or does that possibility no longer exist
now that there is no direct dissemination? What about ranging?

BTW: I missed a few segments last night - don't know why.

Cheers,

Re: Meteosat 8 - Meteosat 7 co-channel interference

Guy Martin <agm@...>
 

Assuming Met 8 and Met 7 operate on the same raw data downlink frequ, Eumetsat's dishes are obviously large enough to have a beamwidth of less than 3.4deg.
The raw data downlink for Met 7 is I believe on 1697Mhz and Ch1 & 2 on 1691 & 1694.5, so no co-channel there .

Cheers Guy

Re: MDM Country outline offset

Hugh Marnoch
 

Thanks David, the offset is not huge, hopefully things will settle
down once the satellite has been shunted. I curently only take the hrv
and fsd data so noticed the difference.

If the HRV image is grossly out, you don't have the Centre HRV

Met-5 problems.

johnrigsec@...
 

all,

Just a quickie - in case you missed it - as I did.

I have been informed by EUMETSAT that they have been upgrading their control
room which has led to some problems with Met-5 dissemination.

All should now be OK.

Regards,
John Tellick.

Re: MDM Country outline offset

Guy Martin <agm@...>
 

On the detailed image I am still seeing outlines becoming invisible when crossing cloud that is about 70% white, ie the outlines are grey, not black or white. They become normal if you untick 'outlines on saved images'. The saved image outlines are ok. Is anyone else seeing this or is my graphics card being silly.

Cheers, Guy

Using MDM and WXSat I'm able to show the country borders on the
detailed image, however they are often noticeably offset and I
wondered if there is something I can do to bring them back into line?

I'm sure this has been mentioned on the list before but I can't
remember when, or if there was a solution?

I have both a 2.3 and a 2.6B card, and they don't differ much, IMHO.
Both support the 4.2.2 drivers, which are recommended, as the
feedback on the 4.2.8 release was mixed. I kept the old ones.

I have just noticed on another good german web shop I used in the
past:

http://www.dvbshop.tv

that they mention Skystar2 2.6C... wondering what the difference is
on this new hardware release.

They carry the KNC One for 82 Euros, so my local dealer seems to be
pretty well off...
DVBshop has the Skystar2 in stock at 59.90... ;-)

Sounds good.

FYI, Computer Universe (german online shop) seems to have the

I have successfully used the Hauppauge WinTV Nova, which seems to be
quite similar to the KNC1 card you'd like to buy; infact the
LinuxTV.org drivers work pretty much the same way on either hardware,
I just checked the documentation.

I ran the WinTV Nova under Win2000 and Linux, and never had any
trouble. I have to say I used it only for a short period of time
though, but long enough to notice if anything strange would happen.

I have bought other things from this shop in the past and their
service is excellent; very nice website too.

KNC-One DVB-S card, experiences?

Hi all,
slowly but surely I am getting ready for 'it' now too. Got a 0.3 dB noise
LNB, a nice 85 cm dish, and all the cabling.

My favorite PC dealer offers the KNC-One DVB-S card for 79 euros,
which seems to be a good offer.

Is there anybody here except for my friend Klaus who has this card in
use?

Or any other experiences with non-SkyStar-cards?

Thanks for your comments,

Ulli
