  • Raspberry Pi Receiver Offline - help please.

    I have a home built Raspberry Pi receiver and this has been working well for some time.
    Yesterday (16th Jan) the statistics page was showing the receiver as offline.
    All appears OK (power supply etc - I have also tried a second PSU). I have rebooted the device several times.
    If I plug a monitor into the Pi it shows all the usual status lines during boot (many marked "OK"). The last line being "raspberrypi login:"
    I can ping the raspberry pi OK.
    Has anyone any ideas what may be wrong or any diagnostics I can run?
    Thanks,
    Julian

    If it updated to 19.2 the wrong way and was configured for dvbt with Malcom Robb dump1090 there was a fault.

    Manual steps required to rollback to 18-9 (remove, purge cache and reinstall) or switch to new dump1090

      Thanks - I have never manually updated anything, just built it and left it running!
      Does it automatically update?
      How do I check?
      Thanks,
      Julian

        Yes it does.

        If it is partially running. Use the web config page

        http://<theipoftheraspberrypi:8754

        or

        dpkg -s fr24feed | grep Version

        (case sensitive)

          THANKS!
          Yes, it was the dodgy version. New dump installed and all looks OK - it has a new radar name but that doesnt matter (not sure how to remove the old one from the My Data Sharing page but i guess that doesnt matter.)
          Thanks again,
          Julian

            It shouldn't have changed name as long as you used the same details and the key recovery (dont use the activate my device page more than once)

            Just email support and request the old one back and removal of new
