Great, keep me informed of the outcome of that feed. Yes those feeds are large but I think with what's gained in terms of benefits it's worth it. The OK1DFC feed is a fine feed. My feed is of a round design and since I haven't been able to find the material I need I haven't been able to build the prototype yet. Without testing it I won't put up any info on it. I am kinda surprised that Ayecka's reciever doesn't already support that. When I search the Ayecka DVB-S2 receiver I also come up with the Novra S300 and EUMESAT. EUMESAT is Europe's weather satellites and I don't think that they are open for reception as NOAA's are. As a result the proprietary nature of the down link the mfgrs can charge what they want for the hardware as there is no other way of getting it. Himawari is definitely that way, software as well. So we are dealing with an industry that pretty much has all to it's self and works with Gov's and Universities that can (and will) pay these amounts. I really think that most DVB-S2 receivers can do this (generic) data but the firmware has to be set up for it. I think that cheap china box could do it if the firmware was set up for it. I'm glad that at least one of the mfgrs are giving OSP a try. Trends start here. Thanks TBS for letting OSP have the tools to try this. I figure that TBS source code is under lock and key. There are very likely some very stiff rules for being able to allow the use of that code as that's what TBS markets from. But if (when) OSP gets it to work, TBS might write in into their code on other hardware making it possible to use more then just the PCI card. Other mfgrs could follow...Wait and see. I will say this.. I don't see the generic stream going away anytime soon and has even more possibilities in the future, for us that's a good thing. I don't think it super hard to process the GRB stream but it's resource intensive depending how much you want. On another note my new Novra S300 will be here in a day or less, finally shipped as I had to wait for it to come from Canada.
