    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:

Beginning of each transmission is garbled

Hi everyone,

The computer I normally use to broadcast my feed crashed recently so I have to use a backup computer Windows desktop running Vista 32 bit. I have used this computer in the past to broadcast my feed without any problems. Now, however, it is streaming the audio fine, but the audio is garbled for the first 5-8 seconds of all transmissions, meaning that most transmissions are completely unintelligible. I have tried switching out the 3.5mm audio cable with a new one, and plugging it into a different line-in/mic port (this computer has 2). Neither of those fixes seem to help. I am not really sure what to do and this is not a good time for the feed to be down since we have a lot going on with snow continuing to fall.

Any ideas on how this can be fixed would be appreciated! Thanks!

Dan

I figured out the problem: The cable was plugged into the mic jack instead of the Line-in jack -- Oops! :) Have a great day everyone!
