    • Just asking, but why was the latest beta announced in a stickie that was started 7 months ago about an earlier release?
      Why not start a new stickie and unstick the old stickie with each new release?

      • Because regardless of what we do to remain updated people don't read them anyway and rather just start their own threads

        • Can somebody help me here. Since I upgraded to 1.0.16-11 the feeder software has failed minimum once a day in random patterns.
          I therefore started the software in the foreground to see what happens. After about 6 hours I see this:



          I have no clue. I can start again and everytime it will fail again after a period.

          • Would need to see a bit before that part of the logs.

            Turn on logging for a bit and then you can look back on it and switch it off again. The -6 error is already in use. So its probably starting a 2nd instance of Dump1090 for whatever reason

              Thanks. How do i activate the log? I access the RPi remotely from my PC.

                Defualt spot is /var/log/fr24feed.log

                in which case you:

                Sudo nano (or vi) /var/log/fr24feed.log

                  Thanks, I think I managed that. Now waiting for it to fail.
                  (So a theory could be: 'Something' caused fr24feed to fail and restart, but the dump1090 kept running and this causes two instances of dump1090 to compete)

                      • New feeding software - Unable to connect

                        Good evening.
                        Yesterday I switched to the new version of feeding software (1.0.16-11) for ARM (RPi).
                        Instantly, a problem occurred and I haven't been able to solve it since.
                        It seems that feeder is unable to connect to FR24 server. After attempting to connect, it just goes into infinite loop of pings. Also my account says that feed is offline.
                        I checked my all my networking and all is working correctly (no problems with TCP connections, DNS is working, I can ping the server - 83.140.21.66).
                        Also, configuration is successfully downloaded from server. Here is the log (just a screenshot, since anti-spammer won't allow me to post that text):

                        Screenshot (105).png

                        In previous versions of feeder, I had no problems.
                        Thanks in advance for any ideas.

                          It is not able to see the right type of data.

                          You are connecting to a basestation output 30003 when it is configured for AVR - The new feeder accepts different type of data based on what is feeding it.

                          If it is a DVB stick, you need to chose that as the receiver. If it is to connect to other software like planeplotter etc that is doing the decoding. You need to connect to the raw port of that and specify AVR

                          May find some relevant info in my new post

                            You were right.
                            I have been running on this configuration before, so I believed it was correct. What I mistakenly kept passing to fr24feed was port 30003 (default for Basestation) instead of 30005 (default for Beast).
                            Thanks for your help.

                              Sweet. So just to confirm your setup example, what receiver and apps you have running with 30005 output active? (may be helpful to add to the various info threads)

                                I am running dump1090 (mutability fork) on RTL dongle, with --net option activated. In fr24feed I configured receiver selection for option 4 - ModeS Beast and connection type Network connection. Finally I specified IP and port of data feed (default 30005 on dump1090) and disabled all data forwarding options to avoid conflicts with dump1090.

                                In past, I had to run this configuration due to characteristics of my setup (ADS-B decoder and fr24feeder had to run on separate devices), currently it is mainly due to extended functionality of dump1090-mutability fork compared to FR24 fork.
