Re: SkyStar PCI card and Windows 7?

Prem Holdaway <phold@...>
 

Hi David,

Those drivers for me, worked with both versions. The beta and the release
candidate. Okay on the older drivers still being available.

Hopefully your manage to get the EKU working as well, and I shall keep
trying. When I reconnect my Windows 7 disc and disconnect this one. Good
luck.

David. If you don't have a copy of the Skystar 4_3_0_a. Please
e-mail me your address, and I will send you a CD with them on. I

will be infringing TechniSat's copyright. I have also notified

I have the 4.3.0a drivers. I think that if you know the URL you can just
download them from the Technisat site - it's just that they don't publish
the earlier driver URLs once they've been replaced by later versions.

Yes, Prem, the eToken drivers work fine for me on Windows-7 RC. The proof is that you can right-click the eToken icon in the system tray (be aware that the system tray may hide that icon, but you can right-click the system tray to force it to show the icons you want). Select the right-click, Open eToken properties menu, allow the UAC check, press the View eToken Info button, and you should get a table of values. That proves, I believe, that the eToken hardware and software are working OK.

The Yellow icon is most likely a networking issue.

I'll test the drivers in due course - I'd like to leave the system running with the DVB World box for a while. There's one minor issue I have just discovered - apparently TrimTree doesn't work - and I ran out of disk space!

Cheers,
David

Re: New user with missed packets problems

Sorry Angus,

I have no experience with this 2.8 version.

In a final attempt you could try removing drivers once more, and put the card in the other PCI slot and install drivers again.

Good luck,

It's a pain, Angus, but you wouldn't be the first one with SkyStar problems. Far between, though. Fingers crossed, but the USB box seems to be a more reliable vet, and a better performer. I've not tried the 2.8 revision SkyStar cards myself, mine are one 2.3 and mixed 2.6B and 2.6 D, IIRC.

Re: New user with missed packets problems

angusperfect <angusperfect@...>
 

Hello Arne,
You are right -snooping the traffic with Wireshark didn't help a lot. It did show that the checksum on about 1 in 100 of the packets sent from the SS2 port to Tellicast was incorrect, but I don't know if that is a locally generated checksum or an indication that the received data is bad.
I could not get the card (or maybe its the LNB) to tune 11977 on low band, however I did try tuning to the Test Card on 11977 using dbviewer. This channel locks and is perfect, with no dropouts, as long as I do not set any PIDs in the data services on setup4pc. As soon as I set up some data services PIDs on setup4pc, even if Tellicast is not running, I can see dropouts on video and sound on the tuned channel on dbviewer.
I have a wintv usb satellite receiver and that also works fine on Eurobird9 11977 test card, so I am confident that it is not an external interference issue. I seem to have plenty of signal strength and signal quality.
I have managed to get all the old drivers for the SS2 to work on my XP service pack 3 by rolling back the driver after installing setup4pc and server4pc with driver 4.5.0. However none of the previous drivers are any better than 4.5.0!
I checked the voltages on the SS2 card and none of them are low. I found a 3.3v coming onto the card at 3.35v and a 5v at 5.1v. I don't know enough about the PCI bus standard to know if there are any other voltages suplied.
My somewhat dispairing conclusion from all this is that for whatever reason the Skystar 2 card I have (HW 2.8 I think) when coupled up to my machine (Foxconn 975X7AB motherboard) is not suitable for reliably receiving Eumetcast.
I guess I will have to try a USB box instead.
Thanks to you and David for all your help on this.
Angus.

There have been issues with certain mainboards.
The ASUS A8N does not deliver enough power over PCI and on some other PCs you have to avoid using certain PCI slots.

Receiving a TV channel for test with the enclosed dvbviewer TE (Technisat Edition) could show you if signal is fine and communications with the Skystar is working correctly.

Tried a power down and reboot- no difference....

I don't think the problem is associated with disk I/O or the processor loading. I ran a process monitor tool just looking at the disk I/O activity of Tellicasts tcrecv.exe. The read and writes to the .fsy file are all succesful as are the writes to the received files. The tool does show a buffer overflow when reading from the recv.ini file, which tcrecv seems to do now and again but I don't think these are significant.
I tried a 30 minute period of data collection with nothing else(apparently) running and the error rate was just as bad. Just for fun I then tried running a virus scan on the disk with the .fsy temp file at the same time as collecting data and this made no difference to the error rate either!
It appears to me that the data is corrupted either on the Skystar card before it gets to the network interface or in the transfer between the network interface and Tellicast.
I think I will try and snoop the traffic on the skystar2 port and see if that reveals anything!

Re: Techisat Skystar-2 card revisions and Linux

I failed to mention that the old card causes the machine to not boot,
but the new card boots OK. So it is not the same fault.

Hi

We have just had a failure of our Linux based (2.4 kernal) skystar 2
card. I had a spare card and this also does not appear to work.

I note that the previously working card is revision 2.6d and the new
card is 2.8a. Does anyone know whether there is anything significantly
different between theses and whether there is any reason the new
revision card would not work. I note that the new card has 2 keys on the
edge connector whereas the old one only had one, suggesting the new one
might work with 5V and 3.3V PCI slots. As everything on EuMetCast site
says must be used in 5V slots, this is worrying.

The new card is recognised as a SkyStar 2 card and appears in the
/proc/bus/pci/devices card and looks fine. But dvbtune cannot talk to it
and gives errors similar to below.

$$ dvbtune -c 0 -f 11976820 -p H -s 27500 -n 100
frontend: 11FRONTEND DEVICE: : No such device

Any help and information would be greatly appreciated.

We do have to remember though that according to the Land Surface Analysis Satellite Applications Facility ( LSA SAF ) this data is still in pre-operational status.
