    This problem occours only in following 2 methods of installation

    (1) You installed fr24 feeder without first installing dump1090-mutability ver 1.15~dev (or dump1090-fa). When fr24feed senses that no version of dump1090 is installed, it installs dump1090-mutability ver 1.14. This should work ok as long as you do not try to install dump1090-mutability ver 1.15~dev (or dump1090-fa) over the demp1090-mutability ver 1.14.


    (2) You did install dump1090-mutability ver 1.15~dev (or dump1090-fa) before installing fr24feed, but chose "Receiver = DVBT" during configuration of fr24feed. Choosing "Receiver = DVBT" triggers fr24feed to install dump1090-mutability ver 1.14 over version 1.15~dev, and this results in a mess.

    Short update to my topic:

    Pi Zero W is currently connected via this y-cable to FlightAware pro plus stick and external usb power.

    Now I get almost the same feeding statistics as with my Pi3B.
    The sudden drop of data after the Pi swap was obviously power related. The first adapter I used, in order to connect the Pi Zero with its micro usb to the usb type A stick,
    was without external usb power connection and probably of low quality.

    I ordered the following adapters hoping to get a high quality connection to make the extra external usb power unnecessary.
