• 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.

    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:

Hello All

I recently put my feed back, Erie County NY "Sothern Erie County Fire" online after a 14 day hiatus while I moved. I did switch internet providers from Verzion Fios to Time Warner Cable. Sporadically my feed will drop off for 20 mins or so then connect back. I checked the Scannercast log and got the follow error

"connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond"

Here is my tech specs

XP Pro Sp3
ScannerCast ver. 0.14 not the RR version but the full version
Win500 for logging and control
