I am not a Linux junkie and need to find a hi def video monitor to follow flightawares instructions.
Use an HD TV plugged into the HDMI socket on the Pi or a 3.5mm jack to phono to plug into an low def TV
These boxes are not for novices or newbies.
No instructions and have no idea what the IP address is that it has that talks to my ADSL modem, so not surprised Flight Aware did not find it.
Try the 'fing' application on your smartphone to find the Pi IP address, or you could go into the management pages on your router to find it
