I installed a 6GB RAMdisk and put Tellicast on there, together with all the user directories. Over a few hours I only had one or 2 key missing failures. However, I was still losing some parts of some images (I'm still downloading all channels). MSG-Data Manager retrieved the MSG HRIT and some other World high res. The MSGs were all complete but some of the high res had bits missing.

I think the way to work is to use the RAM Disk for all incoming files. MSG Data Manager and some other s/w will remove old and processed files. I could see space being freed on the RAM disk as it was running. It looks like serious users have one PC to receive and another to process. However, I think it may work ok on one PC if you restrict the number of channels captured.

I Used Softperfect RAM Disk which will also archive the disk image on an HD. The latest version is not free but V3.4.8 is shareware, free for home users. Download SoftPerfect RAM Disk - MajorGeeks

I had a email in earlier in the week, asking for feedback on the Eumetsat software, specifically the altimetry data of Sentinel 3.

I'd better plug things in and try it.

Dear User,

You are receiving this email because you are a registered user of Copernicus Sentinel-3 altimetry data.

Following the annual Copernicus User Survey conducted at the beginning of 2019, EUMETSAT is now conducting a survey targeted to Sentinel-3 altimetry data users.

And....... a few years later.

Than ks to a couple of days indoors I've managed to cobble all the parts together into a dedicated case, the TBS8920 PCi card, Asus motherboard M4N78 Pro, Windows 7 Ultimate and the Eumetsat software.

First run from Sirius on the satellite c20200211_114606.jpg20200211_141851.jpgard showed some issues with the motherboard HDMI output but I've found a workaround so in the next few days I'll have a play with the Eumetsat dongle.
