Could somebody give me the corrected compass bearing for Hotbird
6, according to my satellite tracking software it is at:-

Azimuth 159 degrees (which I take as the number of degrees East of
True north) and Elevation 28 degrees

Without knowing exactly where you are, that's little difficult!
From Edinburgh, using my WXtrack program, I get:

Azimuth: 160.33 degrees
Elevation: 24.61 degrees.

Anyone can download WXtrack free of charge from my Web site.

I'm on the south coast of England between Southampton & Portsmouth,

Why guess when you can get the true answer?

In any case, final alignment will need to be done "by ear" or by
meter, so you just need an approximate initial setting, perhaps to
within a degree or two.

Re: HRV centering (Was Re: Changing the HRV north section window on MSG-1 list)

a_van_belle
 

Sorry for the delay folks, I studied all the messages on changing the HRV
north section window on both MSG-1 and Satsignal list.
I think James has a serious point here.
Of course we don't know what plans Eumetsat still may have for the HRV
image, but over the last months there has been no change.

Here are my facts on a row:

A: The Northern part shifts L/R with time, this is compensated by MDM if
you choose centre Upper. You absolutely need this if you want to animate
Europe in HRV. But compared to Rob Alblas his Xrit2Pic, that does not
centre, we miss Israel in the image, as the eastern upper part is shifted
out of the frame. There is room at the left side to shift this section left
to make it fit always within the current 5586 pixels wide.

B: I have the lower part NOT centred by MDM because then a large part of
the lower Eastern part shifts out of the frame and is lost.
Luckily the lower part does not shift over the day, so I can still do
animations on the un-centred lowerpart.
A disadvantage is that between upper and lower part there is a small
strip "dangling". This is because MDM cuts the image in North and South on
a fixed height but Eumetsat's "cut height" is wandering with time.

C: I tried to manually join a single CH12 image several times but always
ended up with a nasty triangular gap on both sides. David explained to us
that due to the current position of MET-8, a scanned and rectified image
will never show a nice horizontal cut.
So we may have to live with the fact that joining the parts will never be
seamless ! (Please correct me if I am wrong !)
A joined image does use a lot much more memory and storage space however..
I see no sense to create a 11136 pixel wide image as currently a joined
image does fit well within 7702 pixels.

I uploaded this result (after resizing 50% and heavy jpg compression to get
it at reasonable file size) to the Satsignal files area.
Please take a look (200311061230-msg-ch12-reshift-50%.jpg 1.23 Mb
download)

So from a programmers view Eumetsat did create a mission impossible here !

I don't like the idea of creating additional ch12 files however.

David, isn't there a way to centre both upper and lower part optimally
within the current 5586x11136 image so no image data is lost ?
With a fixed offset between upper and lower part, you still have the
possibility to join both parts using PSP or similar afterwards.


Greetings,
Arne van Belle

Greetings,

Arne, many thanks for your write up which I will study tomorrow.

Just to take this one point, all my existing mappings are
continuous. There could be all sorts of problems with a stepped
mapping, although your wider image might remove the need for this.
If I had to do a step, it might be Europe top window, Africa lower
window, perhaps keeping the split point at the present 3248 vertical
switch point. Not ideal, of course.

My initial feeling is to let the user decide whether Europe, Africa,
or (as now) Greenwich centering is appropriate for the HRV image,
depending on their region of interest. The new Europe mapping
covers virtually all of the available northern-most information
(subject to the side-to-side wobble), and I'll know more once I've
had it running for a day.

I'd welcome input, of course.

Cheers,
David

No, the MSG Data Manager cuts the image where the prologue file says it

MSG reception on one computer?

Roger Mawhinney <roger@...>
 

... Carried over from RIG-L

Hi Tim
Using one PC increases the chances of lost segments. However, the real
question is "What is the effect of lost segments?". My own use is strictly
amateur / hobby and I use MSG Animator + GeoSatsignal and try to watch and
animate weather primarily in the UK. When I do lose the odd segment (I use
just one PC) I can see little or no effect. I guess this depends if the
segment loss is in the section of the image I'm looking at.

I really only look at a few selected images on a daily basis and I cannot
ever recall ever seeing a problem. I have noticed the very occasional and
insignificant glitch in animated images which I have put down to segment
loss. The bottom line is that for me, the loss of an occasional segment has
no real effect. If you use MSG images for professional use, then this might
be another matter.

I would be interested to hear other opinions on the observed effect of
occasional segment loss.

Regards
RogerM

I think I read you had a sky dish (if not apologies someone mentioned a
sky dish and a clear dish in the same mail)
If so and assuming it is working. Take or add, depending which way the
bearings are quoted, the bearing for the new one from the sky ( 28.2
east) and you know where to look.
You might even be able to fit the new dish below the Sky dish.
If you don't have a sky dish you will be able to get a feel for things
from a nearby dish.
Another option is track the sun with WXtrack when the bearing is the
same as that of the new sat go outside and look. The angle will be
higher now and climbing but you can tell if your in with a chance or
not.

Hello Roger,

Very interesting observations. Like you, my use will be pure hobby
and also like you my main area of interest is the UK and its
immediate environs.

I am expecting the hardware (dish, receiver, LNB etc.) to arrive this
week and my application to Eumetsat has gone off, so I hope to be
able to experiemnt and report back anything useful before too long.

Thanks for your help.

Regards,

Tim.

Re: MSG reception on one computer?

seggins2000 <seggins2000@...>
 

Roger,

I agree with you, the odd lost segment matters very little (to me, at
any rate).

The same applies to speed of disks, processors and memory. For
example, my current set up takes 44 secs to completely open a ch12
image (no remapping). I could get abit off this by speeding up my
network from 10 MB/sec to 100 Mb/sec, using a firewire on my external
disk (currently USB2). So I would get my pictures quicker... As
long as one's machine(s) are above a certain basic minimum
requirement, the results will be fine.

Now, if you are an overclocker, and tweaker, that's a different
matter altogether...!

If you are making animations, you can always uncheck the "clear
images" function, so that data from the previous cycle is retained.

Actually, there _is_ something to be said for limiting the network
speed - by limiting the transfer rate you end up leaving more
processor time for segment capture or other tasks! By the way, the
Tellique software seems quite sensitive to other things happening on
the TCP/IP stack, so on your receiver PC it is not a good idea to
have a browser continuously running. I would have thought that USB2
was not dissimilar in speed to firewire, or is it another case of
specifications not living up to reality?

BTW: please trim your replies, John.

Hell you all,

I encounter repeatedly the same problems, did a lot oft tests to
check for faults in my system, but did not find a solution.
So I would like to ask here for help or if anyone encounters the same
problems. Or if I forgot to check certain parameters.

System: 1PC Sytem P4 2,8 on P4P800 with 1GB DDR400 RAM.
Problem: Works well for about 4 to 12 hours and starts to lose all
messages from one moment to next. Finding an end in a total system
hangup.

Tests: Checked the signal which is always at about 64 to 83 %,
depending on weather and daylight. I use a prime focus dish of 1,2m
with normal single LNB

checked the IP adress and IRQ´s (22 shared with the LAN Adapter)
Changed the PCI Slots without success (even without shared IRQ).
But this should not be normally a problem in PCI BUS.

Run the system only as receiver without the MDM Software.
Reinstall the EKU and Software and Tellique 2.3.1
and the drivers for skystar2 (4.2.8.9999)

Having changed the PCI Slots several times (with each time
reinstalling the driver for the dvb card), I do encounter these lost
messages already after one or two slots, even in my old configuration,
where my system used to work for 4 to 12 hours quite well.

So has anybody any idea

Hello Berni,

Your system looks fine to me. Do you use W2k or XP ?
On XP diable the firewall.

Only remark: Skystar driver 4.2.8 is not the prefered one.
Some have had problems with this version before, others have not.
Eumetsat still recommends 4.2.2 (can be found at
http://www.netsystemusers.com/php/html/modules.php?
name=Downloads&d_op=MostPopular)

Watch for the broken link.

Tip: monitor system performance, specially available memory. Could be
a proces leaking memory.
Also look for possible system messages/errors in Windows eventviewer
and TQ's recv.log.

If in doubt try watching Kurdsat on the skystar for prolonged time
using TV4PC or ProgDVB (See my manual on how to use ProgDVB in the
files area).

Good luck,

Hell you all,

-- Hi, Berni and welcome to the group!

System: 1PC Sytem P4 2,8 on P4P800 with 1GB DDR400 RAM.
Problem: Works well for about 4 to 12 hours and starts to lose all
messages from one moment to next. Finding an end in a total system
hangup.

-- I have a backup system just like that, and it works without problems
running the Tellique software, plus the MSG Data Manager to decode the
segments. This system works 24 x 7, and normally shows no gradual
degradation or missing segments. It also runs the Zone Alarm firewall and
CA's Anti-virus.

Tests: Checked the signal which is always at about 64 to 83 %,
depending on weather and daylight. I use a prime focus dish of 1,2m
with normal single LNB

-- The percentage depends on the card and drivers. With the V2.6B card
and V4.2.2 (old) drivers here in Edinburgh with an 88cm dish I only get
45-55% signal, but I get zero uncorrected blocks. In Germany, a 1.2m dish
sounds more than good enough. As Arne has said, some people (including
me) have found the newer drivers give problems (possibly including random
dropped segments after a period in operation).

checked the IP adress and IRQ�s (22 shared with the LAN Adapter)
Changed the PCI Slots without success (even without shared IRQ).
But this should not be normally a problem in PCI BUS.

-- it might be an issue if the LAN adapter is very busy. However, on my
1GHz receive only system, the DVB card PCI IRQ 9 shares with the sound
card, the USB controllers, the video card and the network adapter (ASUS
CUSL2-C motherboard). I didn't design it like that!

------------------------

My only suggestion is to try the earlier V4.2.2 SkyStar drivers.

May I clarify something. I said that my backup system normally shows no
missing segments. This is true when I have the MSG Data Manager running
with the "Drop Priority" set. My wife also uses that system for some
CPU-intensive tasks - image processing in Paint Shop Pro and making
Panoramas. Yes, when these CPU-intensive tasks are running, I do loose
segments, but the loss coincides with the high-CPU activity, and is
therefore explained.

One other observation: on my earlier receive-only PC, a 550MHz Pentium
III, I used to run an Internet Explorer continuously looking at some
Norway WebCams (covering the Norwegian Coastal Voyage). I found that this
activity could also cause missing segments, and I suspect that was due to
the TCP/IP stack somehow becoming busy, and delaying the data coming from
the DVB card and SkyStar drivers. I have not really proved this, except
that someone testing an FTP-based system for DVB, rather than a Microsoft
file sharing system, found that the same hardware gave more missing
segments.

Cheers,
David

Re: lost messages

ltn_wx
 

Hello again Berni,

Following on from what David and Arne said about the 4.2.8 drivers,
I'm one of the lucky ones - I've had no issues. Mind you, I seem to
be the only one here with a revision 2.6C SkyStar card. I don't
know, but perhaps that explains my success with the latest drivers.

Anyway, when I first got started I had a big problem with missing
segments as well. After reading many posts in the various groups and
getting great help, the way I finally fixed it was:

1. Completely remove the T-Systems (Tellique) software and re-boot.
2. Completely remove the E-Token software and re-boot.
3. Reinstall both the above and re-boot.
4. Upgrade to V3.51 of the E-Token software and re-boot.

Tim,

I am using 4.2.8 on two systems, one with a 2.6B and the other one
with a 2.6C card, and they both work fine for me.

I don't see any interaction between the eToken RTE or Tellique, so I
don't think that disinstalling them makes any difference to the card.

On the other hand, Technisat recommends disintallation of a previous
release of the driver before installing the new one, and actually the
installer application is smart enough to force you to reboot if
any "dropping" of previous versions are found. Just done this last
weekend.

Bye, Luca

I'm one of the lucky ones - I've had no issues. Mind you, I seem to
be the only one here with a revision 2.6C SkyStar card. I don't
know, but perhaps that explains my success with the latest drivers.

Thank you Tim, David and Arne and everybody for your kind help.

I did reinstall the whole OS with all the Software necessary last
night. Just to encounter the same problem. So I am at work now -
totally tired.

What I did not yet do, was to install the old DVB Driver and Software
properly. Thank you David for your hint, that reception level of 50%
under 4.22 is normal. Once i did install this driver before
reinstalling the OS and oh wonder 50% with a 1,2m dish!?. 80% with
4.28 Driver! I just stopped any further efforts with 4.22 after
having seen this low level in good weather conditions.

But will 4.22 work with my latest Hardware Revision?
I will try.

I will also follow the steps recommanded by Tim concerning Tellique
and EKU.

This is going to be another long night.


I am still thinking about all that problem comes from my onboard LAN
Adapter. I did get fault messages in the Windows system event log,
the ip adress of Network device Nr. (a long Number) was configured
new after automatic reboot over night. Problem with "DHCP"
and "NetTB", whatever this will mean. (Thanks Arne for pointig out
this way to search for the problem).
That was just before the system hanged again in the night.

Well but before learning about these issues, I try to follow your
hints

I will report.

Thanks again berni.

Hello again Berni,

Anyway, when I first got started I had a big problem with missing
segments as well. After reading many posts in the various groups
and
getting great help, the way I finally fixed it was:

1. Completely remove the T-Systems (Tellique) software and re-boot.
2. Completely remove the E-Token software and re-boot.
3. Reinstall both the above and re-boot.
4. Upgrade to V3.51 of the E-Token software and re-boot.

I hope you get up and running soon because when you do you won't be
