    (1) Extract .deb from .zip
    Code:

    (2) Install extracted .deb file
    Code:
    sudo dpkg -i fr24feed_xxxxxxx_armhf.deb

        In trying to find solution to my station going off line I was given I file by tech support. I was asked if I would install to test to see if it helped or solved the problem. I have no idea what it is about. If it is as you describe I'm not so sure I want to do that...

          What's the full filename provided.
          25-3 = stable, before DNS/IP changes

          26-5 = Reports of not restarting properly started (your feed will also go offline is there is no signal for a while and it auto restarts)

          if it is 26-6 or more. They are providing a test version

              I appreciate abcd567 reply but I'm not conversant with where to put the file so that the pi can access it?

                It needs to be transferred using ftp or similar. Or remove the SD card, into a PC and copy it to a common area.

                Or if it is a web link, using wget like in my example

                  Or SCP while in putty/ssh

                  https://www.raspberrypi.org/document...ess/ssh/scp.md

                  Or on a USB stick

                    (1) Use an SCP program like WinSCP to transfer file from your Windows computer to RPi


                    (2) Once the file is in RPi, extract .deb from .zip
                    Code:
                    ​​​sudo tar xvzf fr24feed_1.0.26-7_armhf.deb.zip
                    (3) Install extracted .deb file
                    Code:
                    sudo dpkg -i fr24feed_1.0.26-7_armhf.deb

                      I have the file. I'm not conversant enough with all of this to do what needs to be done...

                        Then use my command linked earlier. And use the older version as the test instead. Until the new one is released to all.

                          This is also a perfect case where admission should be up-front. And users here asked to be select testers to prevent what happened, happening. Rather than deploying it to the masses and making it break like the version prior to current (which was meant to be a 'fix' for something else..)

                          Easy enough to say 'there are limited reports of some users feeder service not restarting after received data time-out, or after a restart request - please contact us with your logs if you feel you may be experiencing this for a test version to diagnose/test'

                            It is high time that the fr24feed is written from scratch, and existing one discarded, not worth upgrading it.

                              OK, today I received fr24feed_1.0.26-7_armhf.deb.zip from FR24 support by email.
                              I successfully installed it by following method:


                              OPTION 1 - Using Windows CMD Terminal and PuTTY:

                              STEP-1.1:
                              Download the file "fr24feed_1.0.26-7_armhf.deb.zip" in Windows10 folder "Downloads".

                              STEP-1.2:
                              Right-click on downloaded file and click "Extract All...". This will create a new folder "fr24feed_1.0.26-7_armhf.deb".

                              STEP-1.3:
                              Enter this new folder. Inside this new folder you will find a file "fr24feed_1.0.26-7_armhf.deb" and a folder "_MACOSX".

                              STEP-1.4:
                              You should have PuTTY installed (If not yet installed, download and install it https://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~...ty/latest.html.
                              There is a commandline tool "pscp.exe" (putty scp) which is automatically installed when PuTTY is installed. Use windows10 terminal to run it and transfer file to Pi as follows:

                              Type cmd in windows search and press Enter. This will open the terminal. In this terminal, type following commands:

                              Code:
                              C:\Users\abcd>
                              
                              cd Downloads
                              
                              cd fr24feed_1.0.26-7_armhf.deb
                              
                              pscp  fr24feed_1.0.26-7_armhf.deb  pi@192.168.0.23:/home/pi/
                              
                              ## NOTE-1: in above command, replace 192.168.0.23 by your Pi's actual local IP address
                              
                              ## NOTE-2: Below is the output of above command, showing that the file is transferred after entering Pi's password
                              
                              pi@192.168.0.23's password:
                              fr24feed_1.0.26-7_armhf.d | 3318 kB | 3318.7 kB/s | ETA: 00:00:00 | 100%

                              STEP-1.5:
                              SSH to Pi using PuTTY and issue following commands to install the new version 1.0.26-7

                              Code:
                              sudo dpkg -i fr24feed_1.0.26-7_armhf.deb
                              
                              sudo reboot
                              
                              fr24feed-status
                              .

                              OPTION 2 - Using WinSCP:

                              STEP-2.1:
                              Download the file "fr24feed_1.0.26-7_armhf.deb.zip" in Windows10 folder "Downloads".

                              STEP-2.2:
                              Right-click on downloaded file and click "Extract All...". This will create a new folder "fr24feed_1.0.26-7_armhf.deb".

                              STEP-2.3:
                              Enter this new folder. Inside this new folder you will find a file "fr24feed_1.0.26-7_armhf.deb" and a folder "_MACOSX".

                              STEP-2.4:
                              Download and install WinSCP.
                              https://winscp.net/eng/download.php

                              Run WinSCP.
                              On main menu, go to "Sessions" >> "Sites" >> "Site Manger" and enter Pi's IP address and password and login to Pi.

                              STEP-2.5:
                              After login it will show two panes. Left pane shows files in your Windows Computer, right one shows files in your Pi. Adjust these so that Windows pane shows files in folder "Downloads/fr24feed_1.0.26-7_armhf.deb" and Pi's pane shows folder "/home/pi".

                              IN Windows folder you will see file "fr24feed_1.0.26-7_armhf.deb". Right click it and select "Upload". See screenshot (1) below.
                              After you have clicked "Upload", the file will be transferred to Pi's folder "/home/pi/". See screenshot (2) below

                              STEP-2.6:
                              SSH to Pi using PuTTY and issue following commands to install the new version 1.0.26-7

                              Code:
                              sudo dpkg -i fr24feed_1.0.26-7_armhf.deb
                              
                              sudo reboot
                              
                              fr24feed-status
