From the filename on your screenshot, I am guessing that this file was received recently on Channel 1 of EUMETCast from the EARS data stream.
On the ATOVS reader, try selecting File and then Save As from the drop-down menu. You may find that a JPEG image file with the ATOVS plot is now available

Marco,

Sorry, but I am not a regular user of the ATOVS data, so I don't what ATOVS data is still transmitted. I only have one test file left and its name is:

mhs_20050823_1211_noaa18_01341_ath.l1c.bz2

and as you can see that was from a long time ago (2005). If no-one here can help, perhaps you could try the SatSignal group?

Hi All

This is from my 20 Euro Basic Service only receiver. Interesting to play around with different Satpy composites ...

Marco,

GOES-17 has an issue, dating from when it was launched, where the cooling for the thermal channels is not working as expected, so a mitigation is in please whereby not all the channels are broadcast all the time. This may be the cause of the problem, or it may be something else.

The last data received here was the 2021-08-08 0550 band B02 0.64 µm red.

The status indicator does not show a problem:
https://masif.eumetsat.int/ossi/webpages/about.html

However, check message 7199 in the User Notification Service:
https://uns.eumetsat.int/

"NOAA will conduct a GOES-West ABI Cooling Timeline Operation from 6 August – 2 September 2021, every day from 06:00 to 12:00 UTC. During this phase, GOES-17 operations mode will change from MODE 6 to MODE 3, and this will affect the GOES-West ABI data distribution on EUMETCast. For full details, see the URL provided below. Users wishing to receive the MODE 3 data should contact our User Helpdesk at ops@eumetsat.int. [Rev. 2] Event start date updated."

Lucky you John. My signal is relatively steady, but it is no where near where it should be.

I should be seeing approx. 13.2/13.3 SNR during the day ( a little higher at night ) but I am now down at 12.3 SNR and my dish and LNB are properly aligned. Two thirds of the drop has been the latest incident that we all saw.

Hello everyone, I need some information:
due to the bad weather of the last few days in Italy in my area, the dish has lost alignment with MSG.
I have read on some posts that currently the MSG signal is quite unstable if not missing.
Since days ago I tried to realign the system without great success, can you confirm the instability of the signal?

so I would avoid spending days on the roof looking for a signal ... which is not there. thanks to anyone who can give me news

Re: Loss of Eumetcast signal via SR1 rx

Terence O'Hanlon Smith
 

Thank you all,
yes I had tried the Telnet option from PuTTY, which came up with an error message "Network Error; connection refused"; and, having searched the oracle, the BIOS, (but the latter seems to offer no serial port enablement/disablement); along with several suggested means of reacquiring the "Ports" link in Device Manager - each to no avail. I am obviously loathe to use the reinstallation of Windows method, as I am not sure I would be able to manage installing a complete new Eumetcast setup with all the programme installations it would necessitate. I am developing a headache as it is!

The machine is a Lenoveo Y510P laptop with, as I mentioned, Win 7 Ult OS. It has run my Eumetcast system for several years without problem. It is deliberately not connected to the internet and is therefore never updated. 'Leave well alone' has always been my motto. But sadly, such are electronics, that even that does not always work!

I have just tried the opening of Telnet via your (David) and John's suggestions of Enstein entry of the IP address, and am at least into the SR1 configuration window, so thanks again on that score!

Regards,
Terence

Terence,

You can always [try to] access the device with Telnet on its management port - e.g. with PuTTY. You just need to find its IP address. This doesn't need the serial port. You may also have the Java-based SR1 console installed. It still works here on a new PC installing Java and then the console.

I've not heard of "Missing COM ports" before. Doubtless you've tried some of the answers here:


https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/com-ports-missing-in-device-manager-in-windows-7/ad7145a3-8e58-e011-8dfc-68b599b31bf5

The BIOS one sounded most hopeful to me as you've already tried hidden devices. It doesn't mention Scan for new hardware, though.

Good luck!

Cheers,
David

Apparently the same problem as Terrence(?).
Something like 'can't connect or find COM 3.'
Though the setup windows to use this 'management route' were accessible and 'tick-able.'
You suggested clicking the 'Einstein' - top right of the SR1 controller - which brings up the SR1 Controller Settings Window allowing you to click Telnet under 'Options.'
This brings up the Telnet window - which in my case - is blank - but closing it, then clicking (Options) Telnet again, re-opens the Telnet window with

Typing in telnet after Password: - and pressing Enter, then opens all the numbered management numbered options.

Yes, John, the requirement to activate Telnet twice is confusing! You can, of course, use any Telnet program, from anywhere on your local network.

As I was concerned about retiring one PC (portable, no battery) which had been used to set up SR1 boxes through the USB port, I tried to reproduce the installation on a completely fresh Windows-10 PC. I installed the VCP driver from the CD, and PuTTY (64-bit), and could connect without any problems. Perhaps that might help?

Terence and David,

yes indeed according to the SR1 Manual F) LNB Power lets you select OFF, 13V and 18V (18V needed for H). If this does not work maybe setting up the second plug RF2 for EUMETCast might still work.
AFAIK not all SR1 models sold let you do that. IIRC a "cheaper" GEO sold model could not be used to switch for Dual Mode and Single Mode. For above case you should be able to use Single Mode on RF2.
EUMETSAT might help. There is also an interesting note in the EUMETSAT published SR1 setup guide on page 6. Has anybody reading this ever run such an EUMETCast reception configuration (I doubt it) ?

N-B: Even when working in single demodulator mode you can have two RF inputs in redundancy mode - you can have two antennas and if one LNB fail the SR1 will automatically switch to the other one.

Ernst
