    • At least I know my RPi is rebooting as per Peter's setup, its now up and running again by itself. Just out of interest I wonder how many feeders dropped out ? Surely if it was a largish number someone would have wondered where all the data had gone ??

      • Are all the Feeders using either a PI or from a Linux box, able to feed to FR? I am having issues ever since Thursday afternoon. Multiple reboots and checking of settings does not help. Mail to support@fr also not answered yet, neither by a human or a system confirming reception of the mail.

          My Pi feeder connected back automatically once the resolver issue was sorted out. I have it set to reboot twice a day due to unrelated problems with my setup so it reconnected after the next boot.

          • I saw a couple of posts here mentioning that the fr24.sh script doesn't put a date stamp on the log entries. There are several ways to do this, but the easiest way is probably to put a tiny bit of inline shell-script into the commandline in the script.

            If you change the last line of the script a little (the one which starts fr24feed_arm-le_233s), it should do the trick:

            /home/pi/fr24feed_arm-le_233s --fr24key=your_key_goes_here 2>&1 | while read line; do echo $(date +"%d-%m-%y - %H:%M:%S") "$line"; done > /tmp/fr24feed.log &

            The bit in bold is the part I've added. It's working on my Pi, but I suggest you backup your working script before playing around, unless you're comfortable with shell scripting.

            You can also play around with the format string - it's fairly straight-forward. I've formatted the date string English style, but our US based friends may want to switch %d and %m around :-)

                • Dear ALL,

                  I just received a FlightFeeder kit from other aviation company which allow me sharing data to other site by providing several Output [Basic AVR / RAW ADS-B (TCP port 30002), SBS/Basestation Format (TCP port 30003)], is that possible for to me sharing data to FR24 here by using raspberry pi only?

                  Is that OK for me just d/l the image file created by peterhr (like just modify basestation ip of fr24.sh, etc)?
                  I haven't bought raspberry pi yet but I will if the technical issue is solved...

                  Regards,
                  Dundee

                    That would work, just have to use fr24feed with a parameters to tell it the port basestation 30003 machine.

                    • Those of you feeding with a Pi or Linux system, please advise what does your log show:
                      Are you connected (if applicable) to the FR24 system via TCP or UDP ? Just do: tail -f /tmp/fr24feed.log

                        • Do we have any idea how to force the feeder into UDP mode?
                          Presume that is my problem, mine wants to feed in TCP and not UDP.

                          • Maybe a preset issue at Fr24? When you look at your logfile you see that it's downloading the configuration. I can't remember a TCP /UDP setting in the Fr24.sh file. I think you should ask the support...
