  • fr24feed Connection Terminated Loop

    I am trying to run fr24feed.exe on a Windows 8.1 system, with no luck. I keep getting the dreaded Connection Terminated loop, and never get connected. This same thing happens when I tried installing fr24feed on a Windows 10 PC.

    I’ve been through all of the forum messages I could find, and have not been able to clear the problem.

    I am using a NooElec receiver marked:
    R820T SDR & DVB-T
    NESDR Mini

    I have run zadig-2.4.exe to install the device driver.
    Windows device manager lists the DVB-T stick as device RTL2832U, and shows the driver to be ‘libusb-win32’

    If I run mr-dump1090 with the –net option, the program returns:
    ` Capture.JPG

    I believe this means a connection to the receiver is not taking place, but I am not sure.

    Can anyone offer any guidance on how to get fr24feed running with this DVB-T stick?

    Please check this:

    Posting the log from fr24feed would make sense.

    Please post the fr24feed.ini (you can replace the fr24key with xxxx)

      Wiedehopf - Wow - you're the best!
      You've got no idea how many hours I've spent on this, and you one post solved the problem. I'm now up and running.
      Many thanks,

        What was the actual problem?

        Also i didn't write that nice thread i linked, so i suspect that thread by abcd567 might have fixed it

        (Why isn't that sticky anyway?)

          It turned out to be the driver loaded by zadig-2.4. The wrong driver was loaded for the DVB-T stick.
          Based on the screen shots in the thread you sent over, I saw they were using a different driver, so I switched to that driver, and suddenly all was working.

          I then went to the flightradar24 site - and immediately saw that they had automagically switched me over to the free business subscription.
          Yep - I'm a happy camper, and I sure appreciate your great help.

            Occasionally w10 auto updates the driver so be prepared for it to happen later down the line too

              Hi Oblivian,
              Thanks for the heads-up on that. I'll keep and eye out for that.
              This forum was great for helping me with this problem.
