Hi all, have a question on dump1090 on windows vs ubuntu. I setup a new pc running ubuntu 14, loaded up dump1090-mutability and piaware, have it all feeding great, doing mlat and all the goodies. My other machine is a windows box running dump1090 as well. My antenna is a 4 legged spider.
Question is, my windows box picks up planes twice as far out as the ubuntu box, on average I will lose planes at about 160 or so miles on the windows box while the ubuntu box only sees out to say 80-100 miles. Same antenna, same dvb dongle (even switched to a different dongle, same results). For the range, I am just viewing via PlanePlotters map and range circles. Dump1090 settings (gain, adjustment, etc.) are the same. Is this just due to the dump1090 code that it is not decoding the messages for the planes further out? I would have expected them to be close to the same for performance.
PS. Also cross-posted this on the PP list.
