Dear all

 

In late 2011 bought a house which I have renovated for the last
two years. That's why I was that quiet for a while. But now I'm
back on EUMETCast for a month. Sorry it's with GNU/Linux as usual.
I took Debian 7.4 (Wheezy) which does have the DVB-S2 framework.

 

I have followed and studied the TBS6925/5925 for a while on the net.
GNU/Linux drivers are not yet available in the main kernel 3.x tree.
That means you have to recompile modules with TBS blobs for now :-(.
There seems to be one completly open source driver (UpdateLee) too.

I gave J.P. a hand with his Beta TBS6925C and got in touch with TBS.
And I simply refused to accept EUMETCASTs findings with the TBS6925.


Today I got my standard TurboSight TBS6925 V23 (the one sold).

An *YES* I made it work, though I do not yet agree with all
the frontend and remote control modules the kernel has loaded.

You find two 10 years old HP Compaq dc7100 live receivers that
even do rather heavy image (RSS) processing at the same time.
Special thanks to Rob Alblas for his updated xrit2pic_cmd.


This is receiver Luna that has a TechniSat SkyStar PCI Ref. 2.6D

   http://212.117.122.202:83/


And this is receiver Terra using a regular TurboSight TBS6925 V23

   http://212.117.122.202:8080/


Of course there is much work ahead as the DVB-S2 API under GNU/Linux
is almost undocumented and a couple of DVB utilities do not yet work.
The real acid test will be the DVB-S2 VCM signal. I'll do my best ...


Cheers

Ernst Lobsiger

Hello Mike,

Is this link: http://earth.nullschool.net

I received an email today TBS-DTV europe:
We found the bugs in our IP tool ,which cause 6925 and other cards lost TS
packages regularly .
So we upgrade the software to 3.0.3.9,please download it and try with the
normal 6925 version.
http://www.tbsdtv.com/download/document/common/tbs-iptool_v3.0.3.9.zip

When I wanted to frequency, computer crashed with blue screen.
Then there was another crash in the PID part.

finally the reception is performed normally.

My preference is software-setup BDADataEx receipt of data at the moment.

I will seal a last Eumetsat information:
From June 2014, a test downlink signal will be available. All registered
EUMETSat users will then be able to receive a representative EUMETSat stream
similar to the current one. This will allow users to make preliminary tests
and assess their reception equipment. It will also allow station
manufacturers to develop and test DVB-S2 compatible devices.
The Verification & Validation (V&V) phase is planned for July 2014. The
purpose of involving pilot users in the V&V is to support EUMETSAT in the
evaluation of the reception performance (link budget) at various locations
across the footprint of E10A.


good evening ... Jean-Pierre.

BDADataEx-setup for TBS-5925 and TBS-6925 C version...

JP webmaster wxsatpicture
 

Hi everyone,

This is perfect, everything works fine now with new software for receiving
data: BDADataEx-setup
Experimentations on my computer dedicated to the EUMETCast reception (
windows 7 64 bits) are on this page:
http://wxsatpicture.free.fr/tbs6925/bdadataex1.html
(there is the google translation on the page tab).
As you can see there is no problem of conflict between the two satellite
tuner, at the opening of this software just chosir tuner.
There are currently no worries no longer have one and only cause of PID 8192
for contributions to channels that I have chosen.

I still do not understand why nothing has functioned on the computer with
Windows 7 32-bit box and usb TBS-5925.

I look forward to checked the DVB-S2 mode, lol !

Good evening ... J-Pierre.

Good news for the software: BDADataEx -setup on TBS-6925 C version...

JP webmaster wxsatpicture
 

Re : A all...

Good news for the software: BDADataEx -setup
I just received the support Technical TBS- DTV Europe , some information to
progress in my experimentations .

Because do not get a 32-bit operating this software and Tellicast on the PC
under Windows 7 with box usb TBS- 5925 , I decided arrested receptions on
the dedicated PC at the reception Eumetcast and see if it could work card
with TBS- 6925 Version C. under 64-bit windows 7 .

Here is my report card for the TBS- 6925 C version:
Multicast - in PID , there must be only PID: 8192 this allows the opening
hours of all data on the frequency 11976.82 MHz transponder 63 Eutelsat 9A.
IP address : 10.100.10.10 default in the software, change the ip card 6925C
it is necessary to change the IP in recv.ini in Tellicast .
I begin this new experiment BDADataEx -setup software to 14H GMT.

At the moment the various satellite data seem arrival normally the T
Tellicast is pink, and the part I Statistics 8 packets lost 8 recovered , so
it is the perfect time .

I'll wait until tomorrow to see if all the satellites are received and
treated right .
Then I will continue my experimentations on a dedicated computer with
Eumetcast box usb 5925 .

I 'll let you know .

Regards ... JP .

Hi guys just had an interesting e-mail because of my technical interest in the above unit they are sending me a new version trial/loan unit to test free of charge, so looks like some interesting fun ahead, I will report to the group when I get started and let you all know how we get on. Regards to all. Mike G4CFZ.


Re: TBS-5925/6925

Douglas, Hi, yes I admit its going to need some sorting out sounds like JP is doing just that, there is no way I will pay over £400,00 for a receiver, I have invested a lot of money in the systems already, Envisat was expensive to invest in and look where that is now, I am sure once the testing starts we will get other options on receivers, lets hope so or its back to Amateur Radio for me.

I would assume that Eumetsat could re-test the box now ( I don’t think they ever tested the card ) and report if all is now well.  I think that would be the minimum requirement before the box could be considered as suitable.

================================================================================================================================================
 
Yes I also agree this is interesting but I would be very cautious with this equipment.
The card and the box have been out for sometime and yet seem to fail on simple requirements that are in their own specification !
Some of the solutions have been provided by third parties.
 
I realise that people are looking for cheaper solutions to the Eumetcast DVB S2 upgrade but this looks to be a poor TV orientated card (and box).
I very much doubt if this will ever get Eumetsat approval.
Looks like we will need to start saving.

Douglas.

Bonjour Alan, et merci.

Je veut dire que j'ai fait le teste de ce nouveau logiciel :BDADataEx-setup
se trouvant sur cette page :
http://www.tbsdtv.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=87&t=8858&p=30646#p30646
qui soit disant pourrais résoudre tous les problèmes, mais il est plein de
bug.
j'ai donc pour ne par perturbé la réception des données sur le PC officiel
pour la réception eumetcast, avec la carte TBS 6925 version C, fait le teste
sur un autre PC avec la carte box usb TBS-5925.

Ce nouveau logiciel qui soit disant devrais résoudre les problèmes a haut
débit , est incapable de recevoir les données du système actuel.
Déjà il n'est pas possible d'ajouté plusieurs PID.
Dés que je rentre un PID, cela éfface l'ancien.
ensuite la partie IP reste bloqué sur 10.100.10.10 , j'ai donc pensé a
changé l'ip dans recv-ini puisque quand ce logiciel de remplacement a IP
data tools est actif, fait changé la vrai IP de la box 5925, également dans
la partie connexion réseau de la carte TBS-5925.
j'ai aussi pensé a changé l'ip par défaut de ce logiciel qui apparemment ne
détecte pas la vrai IP v4 de la box usb 5925.
la encore impossible, il ne garde pas l'adresse IP que l'on choisi
correspondant a celle de la box 5925.
Même l'adresse MAC hardware ne correspond pas a celle de la box usb5925 !
une adresse MAC par défaut , donc pas de détection de la vrai adresse!!!

Le T de Tellicast reste en jaune, donc pas réception.( je vois juste la
réception quand je met par exemple du PID 500 dans ce nouveau logiciel
BDADataEx)
j'ai même arrêté la réception du PC eumetcast avec la carte TBS-6925 version
C , pour prendre la cké Etoken.
je pensé que cela serait quand même possible d'avoir le T rose a un moment ,
au début de mon teste , même juste avec un seul PID dont le 500.
Pour le moment j'arrête les testes avec ce nouveau logiciel de réception,
tant qu'il n'est pas modifier.
j'ai l'impression qu'il se sont précipité, avant de dire ceci : ""nous ont
été signalés par certains utilisateurs sur les problèmes à l'aide de tuners
TBS, en particulier TBS6925, TBS5925, pour EUMETSAT. Les problèmes peuvent
être résolus par la mise à jour de l'outil IP développé par crazycat."""
Comme tu peut le voir sur leur forum, il aurais était judicieux d'éffectué
des testes par les béta user comme moi !

Donc pour le moment le seul logiciel qui fonctionne autant avec la carte TBS
6925 version C et la box usb TBS-5925 est : ip data tools de TBS modifier
spécifiquement se trouve sur mon site c'est : http://tbsdtv
com/download/document/tbs6925/TBS6925C-Soft-20140115.zip

Pour la box usb 5925 :
je garde le même logiciel servant a la réception des données,du lien sur mon
site, et installe juste le pilote de la box usb 5925.
j'avais retirer la carte TBS 6925 C pour evité tous conflit auparavant.
Donc dans ces conditions, la réception des données avec le système Eumetcast
fonctionne parfaitement.

Il est donc impératif, si le logiciel dont je me sert actuellement, (du lien
ci dessus , IP data tools ) presente des instabilités, pour les premiers
testes en juillet / Août 2014 , que ce nouveau logiciel BDADataEx soit
entièrement modifier.

Donc inutile pour le moment je pense , a investir dans une version du
commerce de la TBS 6925 par exemple ( la version C n'est pas encore en
vente) car ce n'est pas certains, que cela puisse fonctionner avec le
pilote et logiciel du lien mis sur mon site ci dessus !

seule , la version commerciale de la box usb2 TBS-5925 permet la réception
actuelle du système eumetcast.

je prépare une page web avec captures d'écrans explicatives.

voilà tu peut leur traduire Alan merci d'avance.

( le teste de ce nouveau logiciel de rx data a était une vrai prise de tête
!)

Hi Ian and JP, OK on the info I am only interested in the 6925 for the basic service and that was the one I discussed with the team, I think its up to individuals on what they want to receive and pay for the service, but I will obtain one soon and trial it out when the test transmissions start. They did say it was in the IP part that the problem lay so let us know how you get on with the test on the USB Box. I think once the test transmissions start manufacturers will be able to get more accurate info and produce a reliable system for us.
