Issues installing PiAware 3.5.3 on Rasbian stretch


#1

I am having some issues after installing on raspbian stretch
In the log it shows [2017-12-17 20:46 EST] dump1090 start appears to have been successful [2017-12-17 20:46 EST] no ADS-B data program seen listening on port 30005 for 10 seconds, next check in 60s

and my local skyview page refuses to load.

I’ve tried to install two times now on fresh rasbian images with the same results.

Any help appriciated

Check you dongle by following method

#First install required test package
sudo apt-get install rtl-sdr

#Now run the test of DVB-T/ProStick dongle
sudo killall dump1090-fa
sudo rtl_test -t

Post output genrated by command sudo rtl_test -t

Welp it appears my rtl-sdr stick may be dead.

The output of the test was

No supported devices found.

I’ve made sure it’s plugged in and even switched usb ports.
