    Right yes, this is similar to DVBT sticks and people trying to run independant apps at same time. They can't get exclusive access so one or the other stops working.

    Ignore the comport/port potenial - if BS reads it fine and FR can away from each other they both know how to talk to USB direct so should be OK

    If its fine with USB-FR24 (uploading data fine?) but cant run BS, that is because the fr app has hooked it
    If its fine with USB-BS and above when running FR its because BS has hooked it.

    Need to set --MPX in fr24feed - will hook the USB, and re-output the data for BS to capture on 10001
    The big key will be to Configure BS for network mode still, and get it to ignore USB - however I dont think this will allow your radios to be tapped into (unless its able to be sent via Network data too)

    http://www.kinetic.co.uk/DownloadFil...Supplement.pdf

    Last few pages here show you the network config, set it to 127.0.0.1 and leave the 10001 there, or your PCs IP address. This should then attach to the data from FR24feed as if it was the SBS on a the network as before.

    If this doesnt work you may need to check for Basestation OUTPUT settings (30003 output) and then configure fr24feed for AVR (TCP)

    Thank you for your continued help Oblivian, I will have another go at it tonight.

    One thing I *think* I have figured out, the disappearing SDR's do not appear to be Ethernet/USB related. I believe I have narrowed it down when BS is not connected directly to the SBS-3, then the toobar buttons and menu either dissappears or greys out. I fear the only way round this is for two different port connections to be made to the SBS-3, one for feeding and one for BS. I do not know if this is even possible, I suspect not?

    OK so still no luck, I have tried everything I can think of. I was definately right about the SDR's. They are only available when BS is connected to the SBS-3 either by USB or TCP/IP. The feeder software can not hook into the SBS-3 at the same time. Even if we were able to insert the feeder software between the SBS-3 and BS the BS would not recognise it it as being connected to the SBS-3 (just shows "not connected" in the status bar in BS.

    Unless there is anything else you might suggest, I feel like I am flogging a dead horse

    I can see about 4 different combinations in my head.

    Try this..

    Configure and then Close the FR24 feed software so it's not running - Configure as AVR-TCP, your PCs IP running BS, and port 30006

    SBS connected to Basestation (method however you please)

    In basestation, enable Mode A/C relay
    According to this manual, this outputs received data on 30006

    Ensure its working as you want with the radios etc.
    Launch FR24 feed and see if it can tap onto that local port and geed the output.

    You did enable the a/c relay as requested first... Doesn't look like it else the Fr would connect if it were open

    But no connection to SBS3-3 and BS - Not only that but it should be seeing upward of 60 AC. If I stop the feeder then it SBS connects to BS as normal

    Still playing with settings here

    This is with
