Allocated Download Capacity full and no longer downloading

I have just set up my Raspberry Pi 2 and HD Star receiver. I have a 16 GB SD card. After about 2 days
I see it says 100.0% used (0.00 B available) No files are being downloaded. After looking at Storage it
shows 1.92 GB of 14.83 GB (12.91 GB free). In the receiver settings I have no lock and Zero Bit Rate.
The SD card is new with the latest software downloaded 04-Apr-2016 16:00 66189344
In my settings it shows under my user name Librarian v3.0 / ORxPi 3.0.

When I downloaded the zip file I unzipped it to a new SD card. The manufacture for the SD card is
Patriot. This is my first time experimenting with the Outer net and not sure if I am creating the card

I have the same issue with Lighthouse.

This just means that the download capacity is fully utilized unless there is an error shown in the notifications.

That would be the reason for not receiving files.

As I said, it’s not an issue unless you get an error. It just means that the full download capacity is in use.


I am back up and running with a reformatted and reloaded SD card. The real problem appears to be
painters. They are in the process of painting the apartment and probably knocked the dish out of
alignment. I am also using an old DBS 18 inch dish until I can get a larger one. My location is
Southern California. I am seeing a signal of 47, quality of.48, and a bit rate of 90K. Without any fine
adjustment on the mount it was hard to aim and get a decent signal but the 18 in dish was all I
had available for now.

And there I was trying to figure out what part of our receiver or its software could be called ‘painters’. :slight_smile:


Dear sir,
I have stopped downloads, the reciever is locked and recieving, also it reads 0% availed, 600MB allocated. Can you guide on how the downloads resume.

Is your storage device full?

Storage device has enough space.

Need to download MIT OCW course on this link:

How do you know your receiver is not downloading?

hisamullah, my receiver is doing the same exact thing and has not downloaded anything since 7-27-16. I check it daily and it has nothing new on it. If you have found resolve I would like to know what fixed it.

Team, my gut tells me there is a corrupt file in the carousel. My box locked up on a similar file, namely  2016-07-27-23-21-01-075…16-07-27-23-21-01-075115 (100%) Something tells me this file is blowing out ORx until something progresses it. Mine is not moving. I validated 76% Strength with 63% quality on my secondary receiver as well off the same feed. Branko and team any ideas? Is Ku Band abandoned now in favor of L Band?


I have also noticed nothing new coming down the pipe.
Maybe they are busy working out kinks in the system, I can wait.

thanks for the confirmation. I hope that Outnernet has not forgotten the established user base on Ku band. I think the high bandwidth Ku and low bandwidth L band are good complements that both have their place. Best to all… Ruby

@Syed and Outernet team - I know you all are busy with Lantern work right now, but if you could share where Ku band and Lighthouse sit in your plans, I would most appreciate it. I literally got mine working a week ago. I am cautiously optimistic, as I see some of the new documents refer to Lighthouse Mk2, so perhaps there is a new generation of Ku platform in the works. Thanks again for your efforts. Ruby

Sadly, we are deprecating our Ku-band service. We’ll be porting rxOS to Lighthouse at some point, so that the SDR can be used to receive L-band. In the meantime, though, you can always use it for free-to-air satellite tv:

No fix, I have communicated my desire to purchase the L-band kit.
