skystar hd2 setup?
I am very new to dvb s, just installed pci dvb s2 card "technisat skystar hd2".
facing some problems given beneath.
1. installed software dvbviewer pro, but no channel scan is working. probably hardware not initializing.
2. i have then tried dvbdream but showing me error of hardware initialize error code 12.
currently I am trying to scan transponder and channel of insat 3c/4cr h__p://w*w.lyngsat.com/in3c.h*ml
my hardware setup is
system: xp sp3, amd 3200+ 1gb ram.
sat hardware: dvb s2 pci card "technisat skystar hd2", ku band dish 60cm, lnb supports dvb s2, no DisEqc, direct cable from lnb to my pc card.
my location: 21n 72e, western part of india.

I have a skystar hd2 and have used it in both dvbdream and the technisat supplied dvbviewer.
My system is a amd x2 3800 running winxp sp3 and 2gb ram.
I would suggest downloading the latest driver from the technisat web site, I had trouble using the driver that came with the unit but the one from the web site worked fine.
I'm also wondering how you know if you are pointed at the right satellite? Do you have some sort of other receiver or signal meter?
I have already downloaded latest driver and tried it. but no success.
should I supply power to pci card from internal smps? is it required?
I attached the external power connector, it's supposed to be for powering the dish moving functions but I have yet to get mine to do so.
DVBDream crashes when I enable the dish moving function, I haven't look into that problem yet since I use my Coolsat box for scanning and dish moving.
Dvbdream and dvbviewer use the mantis bda driver, do you see that listed in either program as a device option?
ok, after many hours I got signal from software progdvb starndard trail version. so I can confirm now that there is no problem in my card. :-)
now looking for software dvbviewer or dvbdream which is working. previously I have downloaded from Rpd.Share.
I'm using DVBDream v1.4i, it seems to work ok except for the dish moving functions. I also have used transedit, that works with my skystar HD2 as well.
