Hi Folks,

Does anyone know if there are any known issues with iSite 7.0.1.2 and Windows Vista?

I tried to point a dish this morning and iSite did not pick up any signal and made no beeps with Vista. When I tried an XP machine it worked fine.

I dont work with Satellites every day but I also dont want to have to reload my notebook next time I need to do something with iSite.

I donít think iSite is officially supported under Vista yet. When you start the pointing in iSite, even if you see no graphic, try logging in via telnet while pointing is enabled and you should see voltage values scrolling over the screen that can be used to point the antenna. These values are the same that is graphically represented in iSite.

Thanks,

Pointing with no display and no beeps is not going to be easy.

Does anyone have a contact for the iSite people so I can investigate further?

I only noticed that problem when the version of the iSite doesnít match the version of the BIOS in the modem otherwise VISTA doesnít have any known problems with iSite. Also you might need to check your PC you were working on (both to make sure of viruses or firewall problems) as sometimes even XP had problems showing the signal on iSite pointing tool (if the windows it had problems).
