    Make sure you have the correct settings in /etc/fr24feed.ini . Teh input format is not auto-adaptable.

    receiver="beast-tcp"
    fr24key="**********"
    host="127.0.0.1:30005"

      Hi, could you try my image ? Everything installed, just write it in SD card, put the key, change lat-lon.

      This image having lots of other features. You will definitely love it.

          The settings seem to be correct.I even tried connecting it directly to airspy_adsb on a different port (beast & avr) but it still refuses to grab any planes.
          FR24 Link: Connected via UDP

          Meanwhile Flightaware,Virtual Radar and Planefinder work fine.

            Click the eye and make sure you entered your GPS location in the right format. Or it will ignore data

            And with that many additional bits of software hanging off you need to check that the max number of clients hadn't been reached, and that none of them are duplicating data out.

            VRS like others has a relay option. You can only have 1 connector to the device. And 1 output on TCP. If there are multiples the working ones will lock on but likely cause issues when reconnecting or extra connect attempts. It will come down to following data paths on paper to make sure there aren't duplicate ports open. (Fr24 can also do this as it expects to be used as a connector in situations too)

                Bro, its nor FR24 image. Its raspbian Jessie image with some dump1090-mutability, web graphic portal, FR24 client, PF client image pre installed.

                  Thanks mate! It's all sorted.I have home automation running on my pi, so starting from scratch was a time-consuming option.

                    • Can i replace the provided dump1090 with a self compiled version? If so, is there a specific fork i have to use?

                        Yes you can, and no no specific. Just be sure to configure as avr or beast via TCP first (rather than usbstick)

                        • Ok thank you. Everything appears to work:
                          FR24 Link: Connected via UDP
                          Receiver: dvbt, Connected
                          Aircraft Uploaded: 4
                          MLAT running: YES

                          However an aircraft that was only visible from my receiver (full ADS-B coordinates, no MLAT) didn't appear on fr24 map. as soon as the aircraft got in the range of another receiver it appeared on the map.
                          Do new receivers go through some sort of verification process before they are allowed to feed data of which they are the only source available?

                            Nope. However there is some server side quality checks. And local maps where it may hang on to contacts for 60sec mask the true signals received. Server may get partial data when local fills in the gaps

                            • I see. The receiver is in a valley with physically limited range due the mountains, so the contacts at low FL are pretty short, maybe less than a minute. I guess FR24 didn't liked that.

                              • Did I miss something or is there no mlat-feeder for linux-x86/x64?
