  • New Setup with DVB-T-Stick


    I'v set up a radar on a raspberry pi with a TerraTec DVB-T-Stick. This stick is installed properly, it loads its firmware, sets up its device files and can be accessed.

    I ran sudo bash -c "$(wget -O -" as described and received a key via e-mail. But it doesn't work. status says the receiver is down and it seems the process is constantly restarting.

    Logfile says:

    I found a post where I was told to set up mr-dump and set all to avr-tcp instead of dvbt but this doesn't seem to apply here.

    Stop the service, and run in normal output mode and the running logs as it launches will produce more information, indicating if the stick is in use, has the right chipset or another issue.

    Are you unsure of why it will not start or MLAT or other functions are not working
    - Stop FR24feed
    sudo service fr24feed stop
    - Start fr24feed with full output
    sudo fr24feed start ( !! no 'Service' !! )

      Thanks. It seems the chip is not supported. Could have saved me a lot of time if any of the logs of that crapware had told me that before.

      sudo fr24feed start 
      No supported RTLSDR devices found.
