This is going to be a thread put together over a number of weeks detailing my Eumetsat (abbreviated to EMS) station build & the inevitable head scratching thats going to happen whilst I try to get the desired weather sat images from Eutelsat 10A.

Progress so far:

Ive ordered & received the EMS software & EKU authorisation dongle direct from EMS (all totally free - see this thread for details)

I have got what I think should be a sufficiently powerful motherboard with i3 processor in an old case doing nothing, so that needs setting up with win7 on it

TBS6903 pcie card on order

I shall be following your progress buddy ..and perhaps chipping in with my 10 cents when relevant.
An update to my build..
wondering about the integrated graffix on the 990 ..
will in be sufficient ?
Sadly I only have one slot available ..
blue slot PCIe presumably x16 ?
but of course am limited as to what I can fit ..as being SFF it has to be half height.
I'll worry about that after I'm up and running I guess.

My TBS5927 arrived ahead of schedule ..
Another piece of the puzzle.
No driver CD included in the box ..so I guess I gotta go to their website for those.
many manufacturers not including any software/drivers or indeed instructions these days..
cheapskates..or sign of the times ?
I guesss they assume everyone is internet connected these days.
tough if you're not..

The box has the following website printed on it for the driver download (no disc in mine either)

www.tbsiptv.com/downloads

Only one expansion slot on my mobo too, so I will need to run the integrated graphics as well.

You are one of the few if you are not connected, even no internet on your mobile ? If so you could download anything on there and connect to your pc to access them

Well I was hoping to get a chance to get at the dishes and see if I could get a decent signal from 10E this last week. The weather has been terrible - cold, wet and often misty for virtually the entire week. Fingers xd I get a good day this week.....
