I have downloaded Pi-Aware onto my Raspberry Pi 2 and everything seems to be working OK.
However, I am not seeing any MLAT aircraft although my statistics are saying that MLAT data is being received. In the list I am getting only Green or White but no Purple.
I am in an area with with a number of other Pi-Aware sites quite close by.
Am I doing something wrong?
If I need to download/make changes to my Pi, please give full instructions as I am very new to this although I am skilled with MS windows
I suspect a port setting mismatch between dump1090 and piaware. Can you tell us exactly how you installed dump1090 (which flavour and version) and piaware (also with version info please)? And run this from a shell to see which ports (starting with 30) are open for listening:
Are you using the FA-supplied dump1090 that came with the sd card image?
