      Hi,

      abcd567

      The current image available, works for Raspberry pi 2 ? I guessed it only worked with version 3 or above. If so, I'll install it tomorrow first thing!

      Thank you a bunch!

        I'd recommend using a normal Raspbian image if you're comfortable with configuring that, here are some hints:

          Hi,

          Everything set and done, I'm using an Asyss MyCinema U3100 Mini, but yet no data was fed.

          I've ssh into the raspberry pi, and got this in response to the command service fr24feed status:

          ● fr24feed.service - Flightradar24 Decoder & Feeder

          Is there a way to check if eveything is working fine ?

          Regards

            Try this command:

            Code:
            fr24feed-status
            Also in your web browser, visit this address:

            IP-of-Pi:8754


            If status shows Receiver failed, or aircraft tracked 0, then most likely your dongle (Asus MyCinema U3100 Mini/DVBT) does not have required chip-set RTL2832 + R820T. You can check this by a simple test. Give following commands, and post output of last command:

            Code:
            sudo apt install rtl-sdr  
            
            rtl_test -t
            .

              Hi,

              Got this:

              HTML Code:
              rtl_test -t
              No supported devices found

              HTML Code:
              [ ok ] FR24 Feeder/Decoder Process: running.
              [ ok ] FR24 Stats Timestamp: 2020-08-15 14:58:53.
              [ ok ] FR24 Link: connected [UDP].

              [FAIL] Receiver: down ... failed!
              [FAIL] FR24 MLAT: not running ... failed!
              Any idea on how to fix this ?

                The "Asus MyCinema U3100 Mini/DVBT" is good for TV, but useless for ADS-B.
                Purchase another DVB-T dongle with chipset RTL2832 + R820T

                https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_fro...acat=0&_sop=15

                Caution: Do NOT purcahse a dongle which says "Fitipower" or "FC0012" or "FC0013". These are not compatible for ADS-B.

                  Ok, got a new one, and to the command rtl_test -t ir replys with this:

                  HTML Code:
                  Found 1 device(s):
                  0: Realtek, RTL2838UHIDIR, SN: 00000001
                  
                  Using device 0: Generic RTL2832U OEM
                  usb_claim_interface error -6
                  Failed to open rtlsdr device #0.
                  Guess this one is a good fit, or at least hope so! But yet it gives that error... any other ideas ?

                  Regards

                    This erro message is because the dongle is alredy in use by dump1090-fa or dump1090-mutability, whichever you have installed.

                    First stop all to make the dongle free:

                    sudo systemctl stop fr24feed
                    sudo systemctl stop piaware
                    sudo systemctl stop dump1090-fa
                    sudo systemctl stop dump1090-mutability


                    Now conduct the test:

                    sudo rtl_test -t


                    After test is over, reboot Pi to restart all what you have stopped, and normalize the sydtem

                    .
