    Feed options for depreciated windows feeder

    The following are tested alternatives for feeding if your receiver was a windows based setup

    These instructions are not for the feint of heart. They are complex. They do involve some learning
    Some SBS Receivers are still NOT supported
    Raspberry PI + DVB Stick + PI24 although come with a cost. May be easier for some users

    Please request any assistance with issues following this guide here:

    STEP (1) - Install Oracle VM on Windows Computer.
    Download page:
    Download & Install:
    1. Windows Installer
    2. Extension Pack (for USB 2.0 & 3.0 compatibility)

    STEP (2) - In the Oracle VM, install Linux "Debian Stretch with Raspberry Pi Desktop"
    Download page:

    Instructions to configure Raspberrypi Desktop on OracleVM:

    STEP (3) - To be able to give commands from Windows to Raspberrypi Desktop in VM
    You have to do two things:

    (a) In VM
    Settings >> Network, change default setting "NAT" to "Bridged".

    (b) Install PuTTY on Windows.

    STEP (4) - Attaching DVB-T to VM:
    When DVB-T is plugged into Windows Desktop, it remains available to Windows only.
    To enable Raspberrypi OS to use DVB-T, it should be attached to VM.
    Steps 1 to 7 in the two screenshots below show how to do it.

    You can check if DVB-T is attached by following command.
    If DVB-T is attached to VM, the output of this command will show it, as in example below:
    Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0bda:2838 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL2838 DVB-T
    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    Bus 002 Device 002: ID 80ee:0021 VirtualBox USB Tablet
    Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub

    STEP (5) - Installation of Flightradar24 Feeder
    (a) Install decoder dump1090 variant (for DVB-T only, not required for SBS and Beast)
    (b) Install fr24feed

    Please see next post for detailed instructions for decoder and feeder installation.
