  • FEEDER CONNECTION GOES OFFLINE

    What causes my connection to Flightradar24 Premium to go offline by itself after being online for hours? I leave my raspberry pi and ISP router on 24/7. The only way I can get back online is to turn my raspberry pi off and then turn it back on. Is there anyway to correct this or is it normal for it to do this?

    No it's not normal. Are you sure your pi is actually loosing connection? If you logon to FR24 premium with your browser, it will auto log you off after awhile but should not be disconnecting your pi feeder.

    If you look at your stats page does it say your feeder is online or offline?

      There was a problem recently with the auto update of the FR24 software on the pi. Look back about a month in this forum.

      It was a permission problem on the auto update script. It was fixed by the most recent update. You can run the update script manually with sudo to override the permission problem.

      The pi would stop each morning at 7:00 am when it attempted to update itself.

        Yes Sam26K, when I look at my stats page it says my feeder is offline, that is when I turn my pi off and on again to get back online.

          Thanks stanno for your reply, but I was unable to find the update you suggested I try.

            My suggestion is to re-install fr24feed on your Rpi. As long as your Rpi has a solid connection to the internet, it should never disconnect from FR24.

              Surprised to hear about that bug but I would think a lot more people would be complaining about it if it was common a month ago.
