Copy Receiver Range Plot

Post by nzradar » Tue Aug 25, 2015 6:39 am

I've been running a Windows version of VRS for a few months but have just set up a Linux version on my RPi2.

Can I transfer the range plot? I've copied across the the "Saved Plots" folder and restarted VRS on the RPi2 but nothing other than a new plot begins to take shape.

Can I?

It's OK I found that by copying the "Saved Plots" folder that the file stored in there must be named the same as the receiver on the RPi.

It also needs to have the same ID number as the receiver. You can open the files in Notepad, they're just text files. Towards the start of the file should be a line like this:

Code: Select all

  "FeedId": 2,
That feed ID has to match up with the receiver's unique ID. You can find the receiver's ID by either looking in Configuration.xml or by saving a polar plot for the receiver, quitting VRS, open the receiver's polar plot file to get the feed ID, copy another polar plot over the top, adjust the feed ID and then restart VRS.
