Is it easy to feed FR24 from a piaware 3.7.1 image?

Editing the station is really easy.

Go for it.

Starting a fresh image with Raspbian Buster Lite isn’t a bad idea either.
That way you are on the new OS version. (not yet available with the piaware sd-card image)

My guess is the root cause was a cheap microSD card. Did a fresh piaware install and was able to add ADSBx and FR24 without any problems. Next step is to copy the microSD card image to a better brand card (Samsung & SanDisk get mentioned as well as buying locally vs online).

I checked my FR24 setting and it’s “AVR (TCP)” so it looks like I’m good.

Not at all. The RPi often fails to connect to FR24 servers with this setting.

Use following setting:
Receiver - ModeS Beast (TCP)
Host/port - 127.0.0.1:30005
