Dump1090 versus VRS - Number of aircrafts shown

Post by Saturnus » Sat Aug 10, 2019 9:36 pm

Previous topics on this:
- viewtopic.php?t=529

In the first one @agw post two tips to have VRS show a bit more, namely:
* Enable "Use local decoding for initial position fix" in tab "Raw Feed Decoding" of Options.
* Increase the "Remove from display" value in tab "General" of Options.

Done that! For the second tip, changed 30 to 60.

Yet...VRS shows 45 now and Dump1090 shows 112. A massive difference.
Edit: actually Dump1090 number might not be accurate because I am running things differently...so to say...yet, main question stands:

What else to do change to see more aircrafts?

I just ran into a similar problem. Started feeding to adsbhub via rebroadcast server of dump1090. There, I see significantly more airplanes. Gaps in my VRS coverage which I never understood do not exist there?!
