• 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:

I have been dealing with this for quit some time. I have switched router, I have worked on network issues, and can't seem to get reliable feed? I was thinking it might be ISP issues but proving that it seeming to be hard. Woke up this morning to it saying "Source Client - Broadcastify Timeout"?

There have been others with the same kind of problem. Here are some of the threads:

https://forums.radioreference.com/b...ps-going-down-pingplotter-interpretation.html

And there may be links to other older threads.
Read through and try running a ping-plotter type program for a while. There is a very good chance that your ISP is having dropouts with their connections that will not show up on TCP but kill the UDP that our audio uses.

Good Luck

I had a similar problem a couple of years ago. The cable company rolled a truck and the technician replaced the connectors in the house, which didn't fix it. I had previously run PingPlotter on it, so I gave the results to the technician ... he called his supervisor to discuss the PingPlotter results, and the supervisor told him to replace the connectors out on the pole. One of the connectors on the pole had gotten water in it, causing the disconnect issues.
