Default New Lacuna DSM Mk4 Datasets

Hi,
New member here, first time to post.
I have been using this old Satellite meter for some time now, I had to have it fixed a few years ago and I made contact with a company based in Stockport who carried out the repair.
They also supplied Satmeter-3 program for editting the datasets.
I have worked my way through this and managed to keep my own meter up to date, unless you do this the meter is effectively scrap.
I have checked the current dataset I have and it works perfectly.
If anyone needs a copy or would like a working description of how to use this with the Mk4 meter I am happy to help.

Default Satmeter-3 Program

There are a few PC programs, (satloader) and (meterloader) both these programs appear to be the same and are for loading the software file onto the meter.
Neither of these two programs allows the datasets themselves to be modified.
Satmeter3 is a program that allows datasets to be downloaded to the meter as well as allowing datasets to be modified as need be.
Satmeter3 is the only program I use.

How to use Satmeter3

1. Connect USBa lead into Laptop
2. connect other end (USBb) into Lacuna meter
3. Note the Port Number assigned to it
4. Open the Satmeter3 program
5. open ‘utilities’ and set the correct Port
6. click ‘file’ and open a previously saved Dataset
7. Modify as required
8. save the modded dataset with todays date
9. remember to change the top line: UK multisat xxxxxx
10. make sure meter is powered up and connected to reliable power
11. click ‘utilities’ and select ‘download’ to send info to meter
12. usually takes a minute or so
13. pop up window appears; 160 entries written
14. power cycle meter to enable new dataset

Default Sky 28e dataset information

I use my meter mostly for installing/checking Sky LNB feeds, I have had to update the Sky section of the Dataset many times, my current set is this:
August 2015
Vertical Low: 10758 SR:22000 FEC: 5/6
Horizontal Low: 10773 SR:22000 FEC: 5/6
Horizontal High: 12266 SR:27500 FEC: 5/6
Vertical High: 12480 SR:27500 FEC: 2/3
Named this dataset: UK Multi 040815
Uploaded to meter on 04th August 2015, tested this dataset on the Quattro LNB on site at Worral, Sheffield.
I have also modified the Hotbird settings recently,these have been tested and do work, I will submit the complete dataset itself, hopefully it can be attached.

Hi. I have plugged my Lacuna Mk 4 meter into my PC to do the update. The PC says " No driver found " So I can't see my meter. How do I resolve this problem? And also, do I have to Unzip the file of thee update first. Thanks.

Hi, I'm running Windows Vista and everything needed was there in the installation files, I guess it could be related to the Operating System you're using?
Remember these programs were designed some time ago.
