  • NEWBIE- Feeding Data to FR24 using DVBT sticks

    Hi all,

    I'm a newbie in this field and want to try out feeding to FR24 and using the Virtual Radar Server to see anything,

    These are the steps I took and I'm not sure what is it doing at this moment on fr24feed.exe, I'm doing this on windows 7.

    Downloaded fr24feed package
    Unzipped package
    Ran the fr24feed.exe
    Done email etc and restarted the program and get the following output:

    Then I just keep getting the ping messages and sycn with NTP messages and nothing else.

    This is the .ini file for fr24feed
    receiver="dvbt"
    fr24key="XXXXXXXX"
    path="mr-dump1090.exe"
    bs="yes"
    raw="yes"
    logmode="1"
    mlat="no"
    mlat-without-gps="no"


    I'm not sure what else I'm missing or some other problem?

    Can some one help me out, please?

    Thank you very much.

    Have you installed the libusK driver for your dvbt dongle?

      Im going to guess no. Else it would say detected during the startup

      Per my 'common messages'
