• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

    Does anyone sell a Raspberry Pi turnkey audio server???

    Surely someone out there sells a turn-key Pi device that takes scanner or audio and streams it. If not, here is an opportunity for me hire a Pi-Guru and make a few bucks on Amazon. There is nothing wrong with creating trails and busting through snowdrifts to discover new things. But if I can...

    Running ScannerCast as Windows Service for automation

    Has anyone out in the RR community managed to get ScannerCast to run as a Windows service? I think that it's absolutely nuts to be forced to run this single application under a logged on user with no other purpose in mind! I want to have this user logged of so that if something else requires an...

    scannercast seems to freeze up

    Overall, I don't think my up-time is that bad. But a couple of times, I found that my feed was offline for several hours, I got the notification late, and since I was away from home I wasn't able to restart it. I'm finding that when this happens, the scannercast software is actually frozen. I...
