Multiple data folders for the Tellique software

David J Taylor GM8ARV ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ณ๓ ฃ๓ ด๓ ฟ ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡บ
 

Folks,

There seems to be some information floating round from somewhere (I
am not sure from where, but it is in Bepi's configuration guide)
that the Tellique software should be configured with two separate
folders to receive the channel 2 (HRIT) and channel 3 (LRIT) data.
Something like this:

(1) N:\Tellique\received\
(2) N:\Tellique\received\Data Channel 2\
(3) N:\Tellique\received\Data Channel 3\

As you will know, the current MSG Data Manager does not support this
configuration, although it could be made to support it if people
wanted to do so (in addition to the present single folder). As far
as I can check, the current Eumetsat installation CD provides
a "recv-channel.ini" file that puts all the data into one folder.
Perhaps someone could confirm this?

Apart from the one person who has asked me off-list, is there anyone
who feels that I should support scanning of all the directories
[i.e. (1) (2) and (3) above], if (1) is specified? I am quite happy
to do so, if you feel it is needed.

Thanks,
David


DVB-s card

g.kruger <g.kru@...>
 

I am a new MSG licenced user.

I use an internal card "Hauppauge" DVB-s (same as nexus)as a DVB TV receiver via Hotbird.

Driver is last DVB_2.15a.

I use a PC and Windows XP .

Is it possible to have access to MSG-1 datas with this card and if yes how can I do ?

Thanks fot help.

I am always quite happy to discuss commercial terms & conditions and
prices for third-party sales of my software with any manufacturer,
including specially branded or customised versions. People may see
an advantage in a single source of supply for a complete station.

I think this now somewhat off-topic for this list.

Re APT - many years left

Lawrence <lawrence@...>
 

next decade. Cut your teeth on a.p.t. if you wish, though currently,
setting up an MSG-1 system could be cheaper.

best wishes and welcome

Lawrence Harris
Lawrence,

How could you?

Yes, APT from NOAA's will be with us till at least 2010 - all you need is a
RIG RX2, a sound card and WXSAT. Can't get much cheaper than that!

Hello John

In most cases I would expect a newcomer to want to buy a completed
receiver, rather than a kit. This alone makes it more expensive than the
MSG-1 option - assuming that the person already has a suitable spec
computer. Hopefully, a newcomer would read up on the options and devote
enough money to set up a proper system over a period of time.

If the person is ready to do construction, they are in a different
ball-park.

Eumetsat have offered ALL manufacturers 20 licences, however I will
not be dealing in the Tellique software and eToken hardware.

Why will I not be offering this service?

Because I don't believe I can support my customers as well as I
would wish to (or even as required to under UK law) having seen all
the various issues raised on this group and elsewhere.

Becoming a Licensed User

Sally Wannop <wannop@...>
 

Dear All

I would like to confirm a few points concerning the licensing process which has been a recent topic of discussion within the group:

1. As Trial users you are now beginning to receive your licences from your National Meteorological Service (NMS), for most of you this is the UK Met Office. Each NMS will provide clear instructions on what you should do but, the essence of it is, sign the licence and return one copy to them. As you know, we plan to introduce a credit card payment scheme in early 2004 and by mid-January we should have a few more details available on this. If you wish to wait for the credit card scheme before you pay for your EKU, please indicate this to us when we contact you.

2. The text of the licence makes reference to encryption hardware and software (EUMETCast Key Unit and EUMETCast Client Software) which are required to receive the licensed services. However, as trial users you will have already purchased the client software and therefore you will only require the addition of an EKU (cost EUR 40).

3. The NMS will inform EUMETSAT when you have returned your signed licence to them. We will then get in contact with you to confirm your requirements for the EKU. You will be invoiced accordingly and, once payment is received, the EKU will be dispatched to you.

4. EKUs are dispatched with the necessary installation software. Updated versions of the client software already include the EKU software on the same CD-ROM. If you were issued with an earlier version, e.g. by T-Systems, we will provide a free update with your EKU.

5. When you receive your EKU you will be given a new 'user_name' and 'user_key', these will only work in conjunction with your EKU. We will ask you to confirm that you can receive all services for which you have been licensed to receive before removing your earlier 'user_name'/'user_key' from the system.

I hope I have covered all the points you need to know.

Merry Christmas to you all from EUMETSAT.

Ian, your PC would (probably) suffice for receiving the segment
files if you install a DVB card, but if you do other tasks at the
same time you will most likely see some segment loss. The memory at
128MB is probably too little to do much if any processing of the
files.

Whilst you could start with this system, I would recommend using
your present box as a Receiver PC, and getting a new system box with
a 2GHz processor and at least 512MB of memory to act as a Processing
PC (and you can do all your general tasks on it as well). No need
for a new keyboard mouse or monitor - just get a KVM switch.

Alternatively, increase the memory on your present system to at
least 512MB to use it as your Processing PC, and ideally see if you
can pick up another system box with 500MHz/256MB to use as your
Receiver PC.

Software:

- SkyStar DVB card drivers (V4.2.2) - with the card

- Tellique software (from Eumetsat) to decode the data stream

- MSG Data Manager (from me) to assemble the segments and manage the
data

- Optionally, MSG Animator for real-time animations

- Optionaly, GeoSatSignal for false-colour, remapped animations

You can find out about the last three items at my Web site:

http://www.satsignal.net


So aim for a two-PC system, but start with one. Increase the memory
for the processing PC to at least 512MB.

Cheers,
David

I am not sure where you got your information from but it is hardly

David, just to let you and others know I have mailed my acceptance off
today and have asked Colin if he would be so kind as to clarify the
position with regards to users who have already purchased the Tellique
sofware.

The letter indicated that on his passing on our details to EUMETSAT they
would issue us with the decryption dongle for 40 EUR and the software
for 60 EUR. What I am not clear on is whether the software specifically
relates to the dongle or to the Tellique package - which many of us
already have. I would hope that EUMETSAT have a record of our previous
purchase, but as in my case this went directly to Tellique I'm not sure,
although they did issue me with the free upgrade.

Cheers,

James
All,

The Met. Office letter from Colin said - and I quote (in part):

"What I will do:

* Inform EUMETSAT that your signed license has been returned to me and ask
them
to issue the decryption hardware and software to you."

"What EUMETSAT will do:

* send you one decryption key unit (e-token) at a cost of 40 EUR.
* send you one receiving software package at a cost of 60 EUR.
* send you a EUMETCast username and password.
* send you an invoice for 100 EUR.

Note - if you took part in the MSG trial you may already have received some
of the
above and paid in part or full."

Confusing - I don't think so - not if you read the 'note'.

I said in earlier e-mail's and those who have read the latest EUMETSAT
operations
News Bulletin Issue 10 that those who have been taking part in the trials
will just
require the e-Token and software.

Entry to the MSG trial is no longer possible I understand - since it is just
about at
an end.

All registrations for access to MSG-1 [Meteosat-8] EUMETCast now will be
applying
for the operational service and will require the TELLICAST (reception)
software and,
in time for the March full data encryption, the e-Token and associated
software.

In which case you will be sent an invoice for 100 EUR.

I hope this clears up any misunderstanding.

Regards,
John Tellick.

Hello Douglas,

There is a covering letter with the two copies of License explaining the
drill.
Yes, you sign one copy and send it back to the Met. Office and retain the
other copy.

The Met. Office will then contact EUMETSAT to inform them they have received
your signed license and ask them to issue the eToken and software.

Barry,

C-band EUMETCast (MSG-1 data) is carried by Atlantic Bird-3 at 5 deg. W.
In the (eastern) States you will need around a 2.4 - 3.8 m dish.

There is a calculator on the EUMETSAT website for visibility of their

Thanks David,

update until this arrives and is activated - or it is shown to be

James,

You remind me of one other point about the eToken. Back in the
early days of the Tellique software, the Smart Card driver service
would found to have a memory leak when the Tellique software was
run. The recommended solution was to disable that service. The
service _is_ required for the eToken to work correctly, so you will
need to set the service startup to Smart Card: automatic.

I have no details about running the Smart Card service on Windows 9X
as it doesn't support services.

Cheers,
David


Re: Eumetsat CD

James Brown
 

James, the CD current Eumetsat CD contains:

- an updated Tellique client V2.3.1, with an install program.

- the eToken runtime environment V3.00

You can get the eToken RTE directly from Aladdin. Arne van Belle
pointed this out to me. I guess you can get the earlier versions as
well.

-- Version RTE 3.50 (11 aug 2003) is available for download from
Aladdin. You need to register first, download size about 3.8 Mb
(read releasenotes included)

http://www.ealaddin.com/support/list.asp?selectProduct=et&;pd=eToken%
20for%20PKI%20solutions&vr=3

(I've turned off the wrap, but the above URL should be on one line.)

To be 100% conformant with the Eumetsat CD, you should use V3.00
eToken RTE, which is what Arne uses. As it happens (see earlier
thread for problem history), I am using V3.51, which seems to be OK
as well.

Cheers,
David
