The TelliCast client software is at the moment only available for intel x86 based platforms. Several Operating Systems have been tested by EUMETSAT, focusing on compatibility/performance with selected DVB PCI cards. The following combinations have been verified as performing satisfactorily:

  • Windows XP 32/64 bit - with limitations if receiving more than 32 channels
  • Windows 7 32/64 bit
  • Windows 8 32/64 bit
  • Windows Server 2012/2012R2
  • Linux kernel 2.6.28 and higher with the DVB (S and S2) devices that are supported by the built-in kernel drivers. On 64 bit systems the 32 bit compatibility libraries must installed to support the 32 bit TelliCast and EKU software
  • All of the above listed operating systems with a DVB Router Receiver connected via the network interface
  • NTFS file system on Windows OS and ext2 (or higher) files system on Linux OS – recommended for maximum performance

Other combinations of Operating System and DVB PCI/USB devices may function adequately, but have not been tested by EumetSat.
