I solved my problem! In the directory which contains BaseStation.sqb there was also a file BaseStation.sqb-journal. I deleted the journal file and after that VR started normally.

Re: Bugs in 2.0.2 Wierd Data

Andrew

Currently sharing data from Gareth in Ireland. One of the receivers appears to have been sending old data. Vis I was observing ICE440, ICE450 and ICE470 all after they had landed, MAN, LGW and LHR respectively. It would appear that the data originated from Gareth's VRS server and was then propagated by mine. I only spotted this because RYR8203 had jumped all over the screen, I assume because it had been picked up by my systems.

Is there anyway to investigate further?

The problem was that if selected an aircraft and then you moved the map to see where its trail started it would disappear (along with its trail) when it ended up off the map.
Thanks Andrew, at least I know it's not me !! Not really a nuisance and see why it works the way it does now.

It's a bit odd that it's using form feed characters to separate each line. Which format feed are the Linux boxes sending?

Is he using an old version of BaseStation with the 5 minute delay? What format is he using to send the feed to you?

Hi Andrew

2.0.2, Compressed VRS. I suspect that there is an issue with the SBS-3 and his VRS.

I have merged all my receivers ( SBS-1, SBS-3, Dump-1090 and and SDR running RTL1090 ) i then rebroadcast their data in Basestation format and pump it into Planeplotter and Planefinder. It has worked fine for quite a while, but lately Planeplotter and Planefinder will only display the Kinetic based receivers.
It seems to discard all other data other than the SBS-1 & SBS-3/

Has something changed in the way the Basestation rebroadcast server is formatted I wonder ?

Thanks

Nothing's changed in the code that formats BaseStation messages. However there is a bug (now fixed for the next release) which stopped ADSBHub from accepting a BaseStation feed from VRS - I was outputting the message date and time at UTC instead of at the local time. If you were previously in GMT when it was working, and now you're in BST when it's not, then perhaps Planeplotter and Planefinder are sensitive to the BaseStation date and time being in the local time zone as well?

If that is the case then let me know, I can send you a version of VRS with the fixed code to test.

That sounds like my problem alright, I'll hold off until the next release, its not a big deal for me.

Thanks
