    Currently I run Basestation and PlanePlotter on a PC. I'd like the RPi to either get data direct from the SBS or via Basestation.

    Can you please explain for noobs. If I use VM from your instruction, how to - after initial setup, if anything is working correctly - step by step

    1) Minimize VM with running software so it's not in the way of daily activity
    2) Exit/switch it off and not loose all installation (as I did choosing Exit VM).
    3) Start it again (and probably with some shortcut not through starting Oracle than starting VM from it) with autoboot and feeding.
    4) Make it autostart with Windows OS.

    Thanks in advance.

    Also you are talking x86-64 version of the fr24feed client right?
    On x64_x86 machines, the fr24feed is installed by package fr24feed_1.0.18-5_i386.deb.
    This package does NOT install dump1090 (any version).
    That is the reason in my Post #2 of this thread, I have added installation of dump1090-mutability ver1.15~dev for DVB-T users.

    If your Receiver is DVB-T, then you will also need to install any one of the following two Decoders:

    dump1090-mutability (Click Here for detailed steps)

    OR

    dump1090-fa (Click Here for detailed steps)

    I already had dump1090-fa installed on my Desktop / Debian 9.5 (stretch), amd64, so I straightaway attempted to install fr24feed.

    I just spotted Khan reading this thread, I had forgotten about it (it was 2 years ago..)

    Someone must have approached support about their SBS concerns

    https://forum.flightradar24.com/thre...ivers-RPI-only!

    Note the version, 1.0.19-2 (newer than 18.5 in the official download page) with specific SBS adjustments made. Which were later put into the RPi version

    So for the linux (non Pi) minded SBS users, that may also be the go (if it isn't about to be removed)

    However, I would much perfer some feedback over the 2 alternate PI+Existing basestation/Windows methods

    Dev Null the FR24 address on the router and continue life.

    Put it this way, you are 5%, not worth to care about, so go feed others without a change.

    The how-to I have posted in this thread are:

    Option-1:
    Using Linux binary "fr24feed_1.0.18-5_amd64.tgz".
    This method I have tested on Debian 9, five months ago on Nov 05, 2018 (CLICK HERE).

    Option-2:
    Using debian package "fr24feed_1.0.18-5_i386.deb".
    This method I have tested on Ubuntu 18.04, last month on Feb 14, 2019 (CLICK HERE)

    Yesterday I repeated both the options on Ubuntu Bionic 18.04, and both installs succeeded without any problems.

    I followed your manual install steps 1-6 on a current release Ubuntu installation and it worked fine, bar the odd typo :-)

    Downside is that I'm not sure I can be bothered spending the significant time required to get my current Windows feeds and other progs running under Wine, so I may have to forego the FR24 feed.

    You can still run all the windows stuff (I am) just as you are now.

    And simply use the linux variant of fr24feed to grab some outputted data via network and feed it.

    You only need 1 receiver. No matter the platform it's direct connected to, Software combinations and data use after the fact is endless.
