I've just spent 6 hours trying to get a TechniSat SkyStar 2 Digital Satellite Receiver card working
I installed it in an IBM M50 desktop and got the device driver software downloaded from the suppliers website and installed.
When I ran the Setup4PC program which makes the connection to the Optus D1 satellite; I can see the icon in the system tray go green when it is scanning and getting results.
When I close the scanning function, the system tray icon is green.
I can see in the program management list all the FreeView channels available for NZ.
When I try to use the dbviewer application I can the see the SkyStar in the hardware settings.
I cannot see anything in the channels list and when I try to scan for the channels the system try icon goes red and I cannot see any channels to view.
If I try to use ProgDVB5 and scan the channels I the system tray icon goes red and no channels are available to view.
I'm using an IBM M50 Desktop 3.2 Ghz, 512MB RAM, 23GB Disk free, with WinXP
What is the problem with not seeing the channels?
