    Help me get my FR24 running

    Hey guys,

    a while back I had my FR24 running fine and eventuallty it stopped working. I stopped using it...

    I want to start using it again, but not getting any luck. I have a Nooelec DVB-T that is currently working (can listen to stuff on SDRSharp).

    When I start up FR24, it's not working, and I'm not sure if it's connectivity or something else... Looking for any help. I'm on Windows 10 running comcast to linksys velop

    Oblivian,

    Got it, slightly diff than what that said (it's not interface-index, but device-index) setting --device-index 1 did the trick. Much thanks!

    Seems theres some variation depending on Dump1090 version

    Was that the latest raspian OS? Finding some other quirks with it too. It appears either the sticks, or something on the later PIs are being detected first and associated as the wrong device to pick

    Hi Oblivian!
    You are right. Raspbian STRETCH is pain in neck

    Just to test, I installed Raspbian STRETCH, and found following problems:

    (1) dump1090-mutability fails to open DVB-T.
    Reason missing rtl-sdr.rules.


    Workaround:
    Code:
    sudo wget -O  /etc/udev/rules.d/rtl-sdr.rules "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/osmocom/rtl-sdr/master/rtl-sdr.rules"
    
    sudo reboot

    (2) FlightRadar24's fr24feed fails to install by bash script.
    Reason missing package "dirmngr".


    Workaround:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install dirmngr
    
    sudo bash -c "$(wget -O - http://repo.feed.flightradar24.com/install_fr24_rpi.sh)"
    #Enter details when prompted.

    (3) RadarBox24's rbfeeder fails to install by bash script
    Code:
    sudo bash -c "$(wget -O - http://apt.rb24.com/inst_rbfeeder.sh)"
    .........
    W: GPG error: http://apt.rb24.com jessie Release: The following signatures were invalid: A7E7D5E3786CA2212A3A5F4769D62C99357DF51A

    .........
    WARNING: The following packages cannot be authenticated!
      rbfeeder
    .....
    Failed to start rbfeeder.service: Unit rbfeeder.service not found.

    Workaround:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install rbfeeder
    Ignore following warning during install and say y
    Code:
