I want to change 978 UAT receivers from an orange FA Pro Stick to the RTL-SDR v3 receiver. I set the RTL-SDR v3 serial number using
rtl_eeprom -s 00000978 and that seemed to stick A-OK. I shutdown the RPi, unplugged the orange FA receiver, plugged in the RTL-SDR v3 receiver and powered everything back up.
But I get nothing on the 978 side (1090 works A-OK). No airplanes, no position reports. So I am guessing I need to change a receiver type or something in the config files.
My box is setup as Buster (Sep 2019) with the PiAware added (not the SD image) on an RPi2B.

Is there something different between the orange FA Pro Stick and the RTL-SDR v3?
