    Which is where my guidance went wrong, as the original 2014 thread I looked at (and author posted in...) was still using the external FR24 windows only feeder, and not its own linux port.

      You dont have to put up a separate antenna or a separate DVB-T. Just add a RPi.
      Please see sketch below.


      What you have to do is:
      1) Purchase a RPi

      2) Download and write Raspbian Jessie image to RPi's microSD Card. After writing the image, and while micoSD card is still in card reader of your Desktop/Laptop, add a file named SSH in /boot folder of RPi. This is required to enable SSH.

      3) Insert microSD card in RPi and power up.

      4) Connect RPi to same network as FlightFeeder.

      5) SSH into RPi and install FR24 data feeder by bash script
      sudo bash -c "$(wget -O - http://repo.feed.flightradar24.com/install_fr24_rpi.sh)"

      6) Configure FR24datafeeder to receive data from Flightfeeder.

      Please also see this post for FR24 Feeder configuration details.

          Thanks Oblivian.
          I have been recommending settings Beast, which works ok. However I have noted the default settings for network feed done by fr24feed automatically is AVR(TCP). I dont know which one better suites fr24feed.

            Well, between the 2 of us we go out of our way to test things and lay stuff out in guides and posts on a silver platter. So I'd like to think its worth it..

            It looks like it changes anyway now. Last edition update I set to avrtcp and during start you could see it switch modes/config

            I set AVR TCP and got...

              @Oblivian:
              Flightaware, Planefinder, and Radarbox24 feeders have default/recommended setting Beast port 30005, although all of these support AVR port 30002 also.
