    Would be a big help to new reader of the Forum.

    As this is a big question that is often asked on Chat,.

    And not having a PI Stick,. I cannot help them
    If they are running a DVBT stick. It's irrelevant.

    The port setting only comes in to play with some advanced options, or when it detects FlightFeeder or Dump1090 already running. In which case it helps during setup.

    Just tell people. If you choose DVBT. Port doesn't matter
    If they have something different setup for whatever reason. Point them here

    There is already a port section there for common apps

      • So, I'm running up against some issues attempting to get my RTL2832 dongle up and running with my Raspberry Pi 3.

        Starting from a brand new Pi, brand new SD card, installed Raspian, built all the packages for dump1090, everything appeared to work just fine.

        Went to run dump1090 and received this:

        pi@raspberrypi:~/dump1090 $ ./dump1090 --interactive
        Found 1 device(s):
        0: Realtek, RTL2838UHIDIR, SN: 00000001 (currently selected)
        usb_claim_interface error -6
        Error opening the RTLSDR device: Device or resource busy

        Then, playing around I discovered if I unplug the dongle, plug it back in, and immediately run the "./dump1090 --interactive", dump1090 will fire right up and I'll start getting data!

        Read somewhere that issues can occur when not using a powered USB Hub, so figured that maybe the dongle isn't getting enough power or something.
        -Went out and got a powered hub, problem persisted.

        Checked my blacklist files, and the typical culprits are in there.

        Then, I tried a second RTL dongle that I had laying around and had converted to a BNC connector for another project, and had the same issue...so I'm confident that it's not the dongle.

        So, needless to say I'm at a loss. It doesn't help that my linux knowledge is about a 3/10.

        Planning on mounting this setup outside near my antenna, and really need something that I don't have to physically mess with too much.

        Any advice will be greatly appreciated!

          If you installed the feeder package and chose DVBT, its already stolen the device. You also can't use --interactive as it doesn't allow connection as the output is sent to screen instead.

          I'd suggest taking a bit of a read..

            • Thanks Oblivian, your post tipped me in the right direction. I was able to figure it out; everything is up and running!

              During the install I had installed an instance of dump1090-FA (I thought I had uninstalled it once I realized that it was Flight Aware specific...alas I had not). It was running in the background and stealing the dongle.

              I've had it up and running in its enclosure for a day now (to keep an eye on temps in the sealed enclosure). Hopefully this week I'll get the antenna built, get the feed up and running to Flight Radar, then get everything mounted up on the roof.

              • I'm using the Pi24 image, and when I'm running 'fr24feed' I get the following error:

                Please fix the device permissions, e.g. by installing the udev rules file rtl-sdr.rules
                Error opening the RTLSDR device: Permission denied


                Tried adding:
                SUBSYSTEMS=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="0bda", ATTRS{idProduct}=="2838", MODE:="0666"
                to /etc/udev/rules.d/rtl-sdr.rules.

                And:
                blacklist dvb_usb_rtl28xxu
                blacklist e4000
                blacklist rtl2832
                blacklist rtl2838
                blacklist RTL2838UHIDIR
                to /etc/modprobe.d/rtl-sdr-blacklist.conf

                Any ideas?

                  Never had to add the vendor specifics to the file. Only the un-blacklist.

                  Including SUDO infront of each command? else its normal user and wont have high access
                  sudo fr24feed start

                      • Hi all, I've installed software on my raspberry and put usb dvb-t dongle and on ssh it seems to be working. Fr24feed shows something like this:
                        dd.jpg

                        And on service fr24feed i am seeing this:
                        aa.jpg

                        On the site it is still offline and no plane was updated so far.

                        I am using raspberry pi3 b and a "not only tv" dvb-t usb dongle and stock antenna outside my apartment.

                        Any help would be nice becouse i dont know what i am doing wrong

                          Check the log file with tail -f /var/log/fr24feed.log. This will provide more info.

                              These pings suggest that your receiver might not be receiving any signal. Can you move your antenna to a better spot, preferably outside?

                                It is outside and i live near an airport and planes are really close so i dont know what is the problem.
                                But is the sofware and Raspberry working properly?
