    Irregular feed

    So I got my raspberry to work after my SBS feed was cancelled. However - my feed seems highly irregular.



    But every time I look at my status, I'm showing online and there's a lot of traffic. right now I'm showing 38.1% uptime.

    Linux/generic/static_armel/1.0.23-8
    Updated: 16:31:00 GMT-0400 (Eastern Daylight Time)
    FR24 Link: Connected via UDP
    FR24 Radar Code: T-KGVL5
    Local IP(s): 192.168.1.25
    Aircraft Tracked:
    (ModeS & ADS-B) 35
    Aircraft Uploaded: 23
    Receiver: dvbt, Connected
    MLAT running: N/A


    Any idea why this is?

    Code:
    sudo echo -n -e 'use-http=yes\r\nhttp-timeout=20\r\n' >> /etc/fr24feed.ini
    sudo systemctl restart fr24feed
    This adds
    Code:
    use-http=yes
    http-timeout=20
    to the options and restarts fr24feed.

    The UDP feed can be irregular (probably due to FR24 server instability, not so much due to internet connection issues in my opinion)

    So far so good, showing up uninterrupted for two hours. Hopefully it stays.

    Thanks!

    So it worked for around 15 hours. Now it's again like it was. Any other suggestions?

    Maybe the receiver is dropping out.

    Can you try another power supply? What kind of power supply do you have?

    Do you have a USB cable between the DVB-T stick and the RPi?

    The stick is plugged directly into the rpi.

    The strange thing is that the number of aircraft shown is stable, despite the interruptions. And the status shows connected every time I look (se above)

    It might just be FR24 servers acting up. But i suspect more would have complained by now. (not certain though)

    Also had disconnects the last day or so and my feed is normally very stable.

    You can activate the log via the config file by setting logmode to 1.
    Then restart fr24feed and you can check if you see something that corresponds to the interruptions.
    (It's a lot of text though)

    I'd probably just wait a week and see if it clears up.
    Doesn't look like it's the dongle.
    And if it's the connection then that's hard to fix anyway.
    (Only good solution is normally to add the connection via http)

    Well, this is still going on. I have two pi's and it's the same on both. I've tried changing power supplys and still no improvement. On the bright side, it looks like it picks up and transmits the signals as it's supposed to.

    This is irritating my OCD-gene to no end .... Any good ideas ... ?
