    Oh one more thing,

    The two guides I've been using are from this post:

    https://forum.flightradar24.com/thre...windows-feeder

    Which should I follow, Option 1 or 2?

    OPTION-1:
    Installing fr24feed Using Linux Binary "fr24feed_1.0.18-5_amd64.tgz"
    CLICK HERE



    OPTION-2:
    Installing fr24feed Using debian package "fr24feed_1.0.18-5_i386.deb"

    Don't worry about the Dump1090 steps. It's NOT used for non USB-TV stick devices like the SBS.

    The only concern becomes if the data is readable from the SBSx as no users have confirmed the .deb version of fr24feed works with them yet

    From there. You run a SSH (dos like window) and install FR24feed using the rest of ABCDs instructions
    Ok copy that! The Linux/Rasberry Pi OS is running so now its on to the feeder steps. I'll reply again if I get stuck. Thanks for helping me.

    Tomas.

    I managed to find this guide which I am currently working on right now:

    https://thepi.io/how-to-run-raspberr...dows-or-macos/

    Let me know if I am going on the right direction here. My goal is to not have to use the beaglebone and rather dump using 1090dump I believe its called directly from the Kinetic SBS-1er to the Linux feeder so I don't have to plug new stuff in and have the VM running in the background always which I am fine with.

    Thanks again for the help!

    This is the operating system/linux download mentioned in his guide.

    https://www.raspberrypi.org/download...ry-pi-desktop/

    The virtual machine installed prior, can open the iso directly as an operating system-inside an operating system.
    Thanks Oblivian,

    Hi Guys,

    I'm also affected by this move and being the second largest data feeder in Costa Rica, I feel I am obliged to continue feeding. FR24 support hasn't gotten back to me about sending a Raspberry Pi so I will have to do with what I have.

    I used to feed with a Kinetic SBS-1er and the Windows feeder. I have an extra backup receiver (a Kinetic SDR Puck) which also came with a BeagleBone Black which I am currently not using and I believe is similar to a Pi.

    I read through the Linux Virtual Machine tutorial and I believe this is the easiest way to get back online but the guide is not very comprehensive and my computer skills are good but I have no idea on how to go through with Linux.

    Can someone point me in the right direction? I haven't been able to get past the version of Linux I have to install on the VM.

    Any other suggestions I'd really appreciate.

    Thanks!
    Tomas.

When I check the feeder log, it appears to be feeding OK, but on closer inspection it is showing: [feed] sent 0 filtered 20 AC (actual number varies). Rather than restart the feeder I reboot the system and all returns to normal. Does FR24 issue some sort of 'throttle' command and why is there the online/offline contradiction. Reason I ask for input is mainly because I don't recall any issues when running with Windows.
    Problem went away after about a week. Now my positions/reports have suddenly increased. Not that I'm bothered about that.

    I'll try and remind new forum members in case i request console output
    Thank your for all the work approving the posts!

    My ranting a couple posts back wasn't directed at you, and no one who could change it will actually read it.
    So it's probably useless but i guess i just needed to vent!

    Hi all,

    I know, we all follow the rules, but without feedback although you are not the right adressee, there is no chance to change.

    To be clear for the subject matter interested, I didn't use a USB hub or similar, it was a short (50cm) 1-1 USB extension cable because the DVB-T stick is too big to fit to the RPI3+ in its housing. That's all. I tried the miserable cable which caused my issue on a RPI2 and it's the same. I think it is maybe a b-quality cable maybe with a small issue on resistance on one of the connections, who knows. Important is that you helped me showing it is not a configuration issue and that I need to search somewhere else, even without saying. So you served the purpose of this board very well.

    THANKS A LOT !

    Oblivian, thanks, I recognized I might have double-posted but I can share with you, the process for a new registrar like me for posting is absolutely uncomfortable, confusing and unclear to which extend I can post without Mod approval. Including - I have to say - the link posting denial for the four first postings. That doesn't make sense in anyway if you want to refer to other postings and proof you have searched the forum as recommended by the must-reads before posting.

    Sorry you feel that way despite me editing the 'read this' post every time someone brings it up to try and cater for it (4x now)

    But understand. I didn't make the rules. I don't know what rules are in place. And more importantly I don't have access to manage them.
    Noone else helps with approving posts.

    So I can't make it any better

    Despite offering better management methods to prevent link spammers.

    A better solution is (at mercy of RPi harware developers) to use 12v or 15v DC for future models. With these voltages current flow will be 1/3rd, and consequently voltage drop will be 1/3rd of what it is with 5V dc system.

    After all Europe and most of world uses 220/230/340V AC instead of USA 110/117/120V AC, resulting in 1/2 current, and reducing size of wires and switchgear by 1/2, which ultimately brings down the cost to 1/2.

    Well Americans dont care for cost, they are rich people. 110V AC is OK for them

    Typical rtl-sdr dongles use about 300 mA and they want 5V, some are more tolerant than others.

    The RPi has some power input protection which drops about 0.1 V or thereabout. Then you have the power input cable and in your case the USB cable to the dongle.

    This leads to the dongle not correctly working.
    It's a weakness of the RPi power supply system.

    As a workaround there are power supplies produces specially for the Rpi 3 which supply 5.2V instead of just supplying 5V.

    fr24feed is so spectacularly unspecific with the status. Receiver not working can mean anything from it's not connecting to dump1090 at all to "not receiving packets" from dump1090
    Anyway it looked like it was working but in the future i will ask people to check http://pi/dump1090/ first.

    Because in the log it looks like dump1090 is working, but it's actually stuck.

    Pleasant Easter to you as well.

    wiedehopf, the command I used everytime after reboot. Meanwhile I got the system running, because when you told me the Dump is running properly I started to check the data-flow and all connected parts. From the Antenna down to the raspberry. I found the issue and although it is simple, without your help I wouldn't have checked it. It was the USB cable to connect the DVB-T stick with the Raspberry. I spend the last night with testing. While the cable works perfectly under Windows connecting the same DVB-T stick with the Windows PC it does not work at all with Rasperry. None of the connected USB devices worked on Raspberry but all worked on Windows when I connected them with the cable.
    I never heard about USB cables which only work on windows. I took another USB cable and it worked fine.

    Thanks a lot for your precious help.

    Best regards and a nice easter weekend.
