  • Can-t get Pi to connect and see flights (disconnected empty result)

    Hi everyone,

    Firstly, thanks in advance for any help. I'm new here and appreciate your help.

    I've just setup a Pi and followed the build your own FlightRadar24 receiver instructions.

    All seemed to go well and I was able to see my setup and activate it.

    Now when I have gone and looked at the Pi FlightRadar screen, it says:

    FR24 Link: Disconnected (Empty Result)

    FR24 Radar Code: N/A


    Everything else is in green. The above is in red.

    The receiver is a DVBTUSB stick which it can see as it appears in green.

    Anyone able to tell me where Im going wrong?

    I've made sure I have the most up to date version of the Pi's FlightRadar software.


    Thankyou.

    "when I have gone and looked at the Pi FlightRadar screen"

    ​​​​​Which screen is this? Have you connected a monitor to RPi? Or you see it on monitor of Desktop/Laptop using a browser like chrome or firefox?

      Thankyou for your reply.

      I do have the Pi connected to a monitor as shown in the photo attached.

        You need to access your Pi and issue few debug commands to debug your problem

        Access and control of RPi
        You can access Pi and issue commands by connecting a Monitor and Keyboard to your RPi.

        However use of SSH enables you to issue commands from your Desktop/Laptop and eliminates the need to connect a Monitor and Keyboard to your RPi.


        For Remote access and SSH, please see following posts:

          Thankyou. I have access to control my Pi.

          The issue seems to be that it doesnt want to connect: the FR24 link is disocnnected (empty) and there is no Radar code displayed.

          I've tried a lot of things and getting nowhere sadly

          Any ideas?

          Many thanks in advance,

          Kate.

            cat /etc/fr24feed.ini

              Thankyou for your reply. Here is the output:

              receiver="dvbt"
              fr24key="xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx"
              path="/usr/lib/fr24/dump1090"
              bs="no"
              raw=no"
              logmode="1"
              logpath="/var/log/fr24feed"
              mlat="yes"
              mlat-without-gps="yes"



              I wondered if any ports could be blocked or that need opening on my routers firewall maybe?

                  Adding these two lines in the file /etc/fr24feed.ini may help. Try it.

                  use-http=yes
                  http-timeout=20

                  After adding above lines, save the file, then restart fr24feed.
