Faulty EKU: Check the number on your EKU
"Message from Eumetsat:
Following the failure of several EUMETCast Key Units (EKU) within the
serial number range 00090-00210, it is believed this batch of EKU
eTokenTM Pro 16k may have firmware not compatible with the EUMETCast
multicast. The preferred approach to this problem is to recall all the
affected EKUs and replace them with the EKUs compatible with the
firmware for use with EUMETCast multicast software."
I strongly suggest you do not put the Skystar card in another slot,
this will give a lot of problems and may require a remove and
reinstall of drivers and software. other reports tell me that if there
is an IRQ conflict there is no reception at all.
Only remove the card, check that all the gold contacts are clean and
re-seat the card into the same slot.
Check that the F-connector has not become loose from the coaxial cable
and that the inner core is not bend. The inner core should stick out
2 to 5 mm.
About your system (Dell), it did run Ecast succesfully before and you
did a fresh install so I don't expect this to be the problem.

closely at my setup - when others go on holiday academics go to
conferences, and I have an important one coming up shortly, for which
work has to be done. So if I don't get things fixed today I may have
to wait a while. I'll also try to take the card out today and relocate
it, which will give me a chance to make sure there is good contact
with the cable. But I'd like to try your other suggestions first.
