Hi Norm,

QSSTV is working fine for me.  Version 5.3c (22-June, 2007); I just hit the "go" button, make sure I've got the squelch open on my rig, and have predict running for the rotor and doppler shift.  Headed off to work, and when I got home there were pictures on my disk.  A little skew, but very clear.  The system is OpenSuSE 10.2.

I haven't had any trouble "saving" the pictures; they all get deposited in my ~/Pictures/SSTV directory.  Look under Options->Configure to set the Receive directory.  I've checked the Auto Save box on the Rx screen, and also VIS, DX, and Auto Erase.  Sensitivity is set to Medium.  Main filter is set to 1 khz, and no post filter.  The only annoyance is that occasionally I get a screen full of fuzz, if the VIS detect thinks it hears something in the static.

Good luck,

Greg  KO6TH
