FlightAware Discussions

Using 2 SDR sticks on one linux pc for different use

Following problem. I have set up a 64bit Linux pc (NO raspberry) with several applictions. One is FlightAware (with dump1090-fa) and Domoticz which is a Home Automation System that lets you monitor and configure various devices like: Lights, Switches, various sensors/meters like Temperature.

Botha are running on a separate SDR 433Mhz stick. where can i aet up which stick is getting used for FlaightAware? The Domoticz part i have under control.
Both systems are running. But i did not get the FA registered back to FA. FA helpdesk told me just “because another application is running”. There should be a solution.

Thanks for any comment.

Give the dongles different serial numbers with rtl_eeprom. Set --device-index in /etc/default/dump1090-fa (despite the name, it also accepts serial numbers)
