Small problem


John Parkins <john@...>
 

Hello Group,

Got around to finally sorting out my computer yesterday, after a while
it gets so full of 'stuff' it needs a spring clean. So I now have a
brand new installation of Windows XP, but...... Having got the SkyStar
card in and working I installed the Tellique software which also runs.
The problem is that as files are being received I get VERY short
hesitations, as though the computer has come to a halt. Now the
hardware is exactly the same as before, apart from the addition of
more memory, but I have used the updated drivers 4.2.8 for the SkyStar
card, the Tellique software is as before. I have to make clear that it
is only while the Tellique software is running that I get these
hesitations. Anyone having the same problem?

John,

I decided to install the new SkyStar 4.2.8 this morning as well and besides of
requiring the repair file, my XP-pro machine shows the same behaviour as you
mention. I personally find it so disturbing that I have decided to roll back to
the 'old' version. That one runs smooth in combination with the Data Manager.

In view of this, I would suggest not upgrading a system that works,
and waiting until Eumetsat release their new version (if and when)
which has been properly tested.....

Cheers,

I am definitely *not* going to update my drivers!

I have also switched back to the Tellique software I had found on the net before I received the CD from EUMETSAT, as I found that the AstraNet/T-DSL version is much more stable (never had any false start, any double icons in the taskbar and other nasty things).

I found the software here:

Beware, as you might need some fiddling to extract and configure the Tellique software... but I did it, and worked fine even under Linux.

Bye, Luca

Hello all,

Just an update to this, confusing as usual with anything connected
to the SkyStar card. I un-installed the drivers and the card and
then went with the old drivers 4.2.2. This seems to have cured the
problem, but on checking I'm still told I'm using the new 4.2.8
drivers...... I'll just walk away from it slowly and hope it all
carries on working. And just to make this week perfect the other
computer has just made a noise like a cat with it tail on fire, so I
would assume that's a hard disk bearing about to go!

As you are using XP a surer option might be to simply go back to a previous
restore point. It takes a couple of minutes and all harm and driver issues are
gone as if they never were there in the first place.

Fheers,
