I did not get the simserver prompt. How come?

When running Jumpseat for the first time, some users may not get the network request to allow simserver through the network. This is likely due to some antivirus programs removing the simserver dependency before it has a chance to run. If this happens to you:

  • Uninstall Jumpseat.
  • Disable your antivirus program temporarily.
  • Install Jumpseat & run it for the first time.
  • Re-enable your antivirus.
I didn’t receive a verification email. What do I do?

The email likely went to your SPAM folder. The subject line for that email is Verify Account - Jumpseat Media. Check spam, and if you still can't find it, contact us on Discord and we'll get you sorted.

    Hi there, I never received any email to confirm my registration, even in my spam folder, and I tried twice.
    What can I do?

      Please join our discord and DM me the email you used to sign up. I can look you up in the database and try to re-send the email.

    So great! Just started in Dallas and now I know, there is a Catholic.Hiphop Radio station... and most of the music at the other stations in that area are playing Country... weird 😀

      Wooot! And about that station that you’re talking about: if you know of a station and don’t see it on Jumpseat, ping me on our Discord and I’ll try to find it online and if they have a stream, I’ll add it!! Enjoy!

    AAlter, wie geil ist das denn? Ich muss echt mal sagen. Leute ihr macht hier in Eurer Freizeit einen richtig geilen Job! Tolle Idee! Nach ein paar Klicks und Tricks, sowie Registrierung bei Jumpseat (Jumpseatmail landet im Spam) und einer Meldung "Nicht Vertrauenswürdige Software". Läuft auf jeden Fall. Egal warum. Macht, was es soll! Gute Arbeit!

      Thank you BOOAAHR! Enjoy! And yep, the verification email definitely has a potential to go into spam, so if others downloading are not receiving it, check there! Adding this to the FAQs too.

      Dieses Radio läuft jetzt auf jeden Fall immer nebenbei mit. Was für eine tolle Idee!

    While the installer file is ok, once installed I get malware warning when the program tries to launch simserver.exe for it being "Generic.Trojan.Malicious.DDS" . I do NOT think lack of certificate is the issue as I have other unsigned apps from other developers without such detection. Somethig is off about that exe. Not sure what's going on here. Virus total shows 3 AV detections on this: https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/eadf6bfcff61e8d347ad24d0d487ee65bb043485b7b3e167c8b8547190083d6b/detection

      Howdy! Thanks for the in depth reply! A google search on AV false positives turns up quite a few examples, one specific to Virus Total: https://weblog.west-wind.com/posts/2016/oct/05/dealing-with-antivirus-false-positives. Unfortunately, they will happen, and have happened in the past to frameworks just like the one Jumpseat is built with. At the end of the day, going through every AV software and asking them to whitelist a free app may become a job in and of itself. You are right. Code signing is not the single fix. And nothing will completely prevent an app for getting false flagged. As mentioned in a previous comment, totally get the concern over a foreign app off the internet flagging AV and can even relate! I’ll be in the look out for any techniques to help minimize the risk of false positives. If you’re aware of any, I’d certainly be open! Join our discord and let’s get this fixed together! In the meantime, we won’t be offended if you choose to uninstall/delete the app 😊.

      I should also mention: a future version of the app will (hopefully) remove the need for the simserver executable, so this might eventually fix itself once that happens.

      Ok. Final comment as this has come up in the past and I’d like to put it to bed, at least to the best of my abilities as of today. Check out then GitHub issue on pyinstaller, one of the tools we use in developing Jumpseat: https://github.com/pyinstaller/pyinstaller/issues/4343#issuecomment-516817073. At the end of the day, it’s a judgment call that you, the user, will have to make, on whether you would like to trust the software you install or not. Cheers!

    Excellent work. Happy to see it evolve and become multidimensional. Jumpseat Radio is on for every flight.

    A fantastic addon! Only things I could think of wanting with it would be something to show the current song, and perhaps distortion when you have a poor signal to the station, but that's minor. This really adds a lot of immersion.
    • mrbogster
      14 day(s) ago
      Thanks! I've thought about song names frequently. Unfortunately, I've not been able to find a service that won't cost an arm and a leg to identify the song mid-play, and there are very few streaming stations that fully publish "playing now" information. I'll be on the look out though!

      Fly in remote areas, trust me - they're plenty static-y lol.

    Sounds interesting, but my AV classifies this als malware.
    • mrbogster
      1 month(s) ago
      Thanks for reporting this. We've had one more person report the same thing. I believe this is due to the fact that the software is not digitally signed. As signing certificates cost multiple hundreds of dollars, and the app is currently free, I don't anticipate us getting a certificate anytime soon. We hope you can still enjoy this software, but totally understand if you're not comfortable installing it.

      To answer the obvious question: no, there is no malware that comes packaged with this software, and the app does not to anything more than what you can see or hear.

    Fantastic job. Highly recommend this for longer flights.

    Great app!! Very cool! Is there any option to leave the app change and autoplay the stations in proximity on the fly ?? It would be great!!
    • mrbogster
      1 month(s) ago
      We thought about that, but depending on how fast you move across the world, the challenge becomes figuring out how often to change. For example, in some parts of the world, you may have 10s of stations that are nearby at any point in time...so do you then change the station every few seconds? Feels like that might get annoying at some point. What kind of feature were you thinking about?
    • Pistolero667
      1 month(s) ago
      Thank you for your response. Yes it would be annoying if stations changes every 10 sec. Maybe an option to choose automatic switch or not. And if we choose automatic switch, another option to choose how fast the stations shoold be refreshed ( for exemple every 10 min, every 30 min or every hour for example)
    • mrbogster

      That's an interesting idea! I'll add it to our feature requests list. Thanks for your input!
