    2 separate SD cards, or using the same?

    'Rainbow' as everyone puts it is the screen test. It remains on screen if no valid OS boots

    Commonly, bad SD card, wrongly formatted (and then imaged SD), or incompatibility

    Hi firstly thanks for this guide I followed it a while ago and got my original rpi model b up and running unfortunately Iím now seeing this error

    Itís feeding everywhere ok just the map has got this Ajax error so I canít use it or the open Adsb iOS app

    Iím thinking of grabbing a spare SD and starting again in case itís a corruption issue, Iíve tried updating and rebooting and also saw the threads about ipv6 and tried those suggestions just in case as I notice the fr24 monitor page is listing my ipv4 but also ipv6 addresses - Iím with BT and I think they issued a router update in August which they are now Ďtestingí or more correctly Ďfiddlingí as my router will sometimes say ipv6 enabled and other times not - could be just coincidence but I changed nothing before it stopped working so something external changed possibly isp, or open street maps / google

    The piaware page works but complains about something on google maps hence my adding google above

    Should I be looking to start with the image on the first thread or should I download a fresh base image for raspian lite on a newer release ?

    (1) Give command: sudo systemctl restart dump1090-mutability

    Alternatively reboot Pi.

    (2) Clear Browser Cache: Press (Ctrl+Shift+Delete) Keys simultaneously

    (3) Reload Browser: Press (Ctrl+F5) Keys simultaneously

    IF all above does not work, check if your Dongle is plugged-in firmly. Un-plug and Re-plug it. If dongle is connected using a USB extender cable, remove cable and connect directly, or try another cable.

    If all that does not work, then it seems your installation is broken. In this case the best solution is a fresh install:

    EITHER:
    Download and write image as shown in first post of this thread

    OR
    Do following:
    - Download Raspbian Stretch LITE image from http://raspberrypi.org/downloads/raspbian/
    - Write downloaded Raspbian image to your microSD Card.
    - FIRST software you should install is dump1090-mutability ver 1.15~dev.
    - Feeders should be installed AFTER dump1090-mutability has been installed.
    - Do NOT select option "Receiver = DVBT" in FR24 feeder configuration, otherwise your dump1090-mutability will be downgraded from ver 1.15 to ver 1.14

    The stats for one of my remotely located feeders ( RPi 3B and Prostick Plus running this install version ) changed significantly in early September, with range and hits/reports dropping by 25% in one day. Since then, the stats have continued to drop slowly to about 10-30% of its original 'reported' performance. I've been wondering if its a hardware issue, too large a log file or just a stats issue/aberration.

    Then on Friday afternoon, the area where its located was hit by wild weather including 40 lightning strikes within 3km and 3 within 750m. The feeder went offline in the middle of the storm ( I guessing the Prostick is zapped ) and the router lost connection about 16 hours later ( probably power circuit breaker has tripped and the battery backup then drained ). So I'm making a site visit tomorrow to see whats left and to take along some replacement equipment.

    Today, I'm making a new SD Card today with the log turned off. In case the RPi is becoming sluggish because its running continuously, I'm also thinking of adding a cron job to give it a routine kickstart. What do the wise ones suggest ? Should the cron job reboot the Pi or just restart the FR24 service ?

    Thanks

    For anyone who's interested, I opted to have the cron job reboot in the early hours each morning.

    Cheers

    The log file setting has always been a bit screwy (i.e. ignored!). This thread has a logrotate script that seems to work

    Wow this is a very cool setup.
    I've gotten the dump1090 up and running nicely, no problems there, it shows nice maps, stats everything.
    But when I go to configure the FR24 on port 8754, I get an error, there is no reply on the port.
    I've done all the updates I can think of.

    I've now run the
    sudo bash -c "$(wget -O - repo dot feed dot flightradar24 dot com slash install_fr24_rpi.sh)"
    It redownloaded the fr24, and that made the FR24 work, now I hope I haven't screwed up everything else.
    When asked, I just let it do auto-configure.
    For some reason it shows
    avr-tcp, Connected
    instead of DVB-C, but I think that's the only thing.
    It feeds to FR24, and the radar image shows, which is REALLY nice :-)
    I'm contemplating doing something to make the radar image available from the outside, but I don't want all the other stuff to be available.
    So I guess I have to figure out something with a reverse proxy. Has anybody else done this, and founds something really lightweight?

    Thats a good thing. The wizard has detected a source for data and latched onto it.
    Chosing DVBT would cause the script to blindly overwrite your Dump1090 settings - don't

    You can change the format to beast-tcp on 30005 however if it appears unstable on ar/30002

    I use nginx proxy with .htaccess user accounts which may do what you require. If you are lucky ABCD567 may expand on it as an optional step. But you direct an out of the norm external port, nginx catches it and forwards to correct internal once user verified
