  • Disabling auto update - pro's and con's

    In another thread, Mr Mac says
    I have turned off auto-update, that s why it is on 1.0.19-15
    This got me thinking - what are the likely issue's if I disable auto-update and remain with an out-of-date version of the feeder software ??

    In my case, I'm enjoying the challenge of having a number of feeders located across the countryside but don't have SSH/VPN etc remote access to them. My telco can give me a static-ip for an additional $10/month per site but thats a bit rich simply for hobbyist use. So auto-update is obviously the way to go .. until something with an update doesn't go to plan.

    Happy to hear thoughts and suggestions from anyone who's been down this track.

    Auto update caused a mess about a year ago when FR24 switched from dump1090 "Malcolm Robb" to dump1090 "mutability ver 1.14". This problem is over now, and all my feeders with auto-update are working sice almost an year without any problem.
