    As many time said here.....that info on fr24 page is NOT RELEVANT! Only relevant info about your feed is on your premium page and radarview.
    Page CANNOT show all radars feeding one or more planes.
    There is room only for one radar.
    If it's not yours it doesn't mean you don't feed.

    Yes.
    The fact is that when I start my radar after a while I can see planes signaled by my radar for hours.. then no planes at all from me!

    I've tried to run the new feeder and I still got an ONLINE status but neither one of "my planes" were displayed on FR24. What's wrong with both setups?

    PS. Both old and new feeder are saying ... sending 6 planes... sending n planes... pinging server....

    No idea... but I'm sure it can change. Else push it with PlanePlotters application, if you have a Windows box available.
    heh, no winblows boxes here, I enjoy linux stability on everything from phone, tablet, laptop and desktop, as well as local servers, all the adsb stuff is on a local file/DLNA server, so its 24/7 with UPS , and has plenty of grunt to spare.

    at 29c p/kwhr in power costs in my state in Australia, if it only ran adsb, I'd invest in a 5 watt RPi, but since I'm already burning copious kw's, cant be bothered

    Those guys only offer windows feeders last I spoke to them, admittedly, this was beginning of year, have they found a real coder now?

    Maybe they've made changes already, they dont apparently want my data...
    tracked over 4 minutes (yeah I forget to moved the mouse out of screenshot area lol)

    Strangely there has been no response on this, I'll continue to run the software set I have
    * Dump1090
    * FR24-Feed
    * PiAware (the feeder for the nice people at FlightAware)
    * I did dry the PlaneFinder feeder - it worked but was very heavy on CPU an pig to install so discontinued it (built using NodeJS)

    If any one wants to discard my data or requests that I cease feeding them they can!

    (by the way, are there others I can feed with the simple setup?)

    If what is suspected, is indeed true and FR24 wants to "own" the data that comes from the dongle, without the option to feed to any other app, they can ready themselves to loose quite a lot of feeders. For instance, my data is piped out to VRS, ADSBScope and PlanePlotter locally. Each of these apps have some features I find useful that is not given by any of the other apps (like range, static tracks, max distance). So if speculation is correct, then I wont even be able to look at my own data on my own screens? Guess which "problematic" package will then get deleted ....

    "As I understand it the new feeder talks directly to the dongle or receiving hardware, and feeds to FR24 only."

    How to win friends and influence people. That's a nice attitude to have.

    Do we get clarification on if there are other ports we can connect our other feeds to - if we went down this route, it would kill all the other feeds. Are you going to kill your older feeders by switching them off? Are you going to tell anyone? Do you even care? All this is going to do is loose you a substantial amount of data (maybe that's what you want).


    "unless it has port that these other feeders connect to. "

    That question was brought to their attention months ago and got ignored. So I think we've got or answer.


    Ah well, its been fun. If we have a choice of multi-feeding or FR24 only then I'll be continuing multi-feeding without FR24. At least the other people I feed to appreciate the time, effort and money I put in to give them my data.

    dump1090 is not and cannot be used.
    This would be a serious mistake, a lot of people multi feed, and some of the places we feed have no where near the saturation that FR24 does, so I ask myself, do I continue to feed an over loaded (for YBBN area atleast) FR24, or stick to help the smaller, but growing services, one of which without me cant cover YBBN under 8K feet last I checked, another, could do OK close to YBBN and outer areas with higher altitude.

    Weighing it up, my next to pointless contribution to FR24 may very well be outweighed by the other two services, one of which I am , or last I checked, the primary for this area, and I may then shutdown FR24 feed.

    So this new software would need to allow access to those ports, besides, as we know, dump1090 has a great inbuilt display system, one I use 99.9999999% of time, only rarely logging into FR24.

    Are you just updating the binary? If so I could probably just move ahead with this. Otherwise, if you are adding initialization scripts or abandoning dump1090 then I will probably hold off.

    The predicted closing of this thread suggests that we are now on final version of the old feeder.

    Is not been stated but it's possible that the old feeder could in the fullness of time - be disabled (would only need the new feeder to talk to different servers, and the old servers be switched off or something)

    I will continue to use dump1090 on the equipment I have paid for (so I can feed others as well as FR24) and if FR24 want me not to feed them, that's fine by me.
