• 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:

First, you do have .NET Framework installed? Also, check to make sure your recording volume is ok. Right click your speaker icon and go to recording devices, right click what ever is being used for recording and go to properties and the levels tab.

That's for .NET Framework 4.0. it won't do any thing for programs such as ScannerCast or RadioFeed/ProScan that targets the .NET Framework.2.0.

Supervisor601 advises "Okay, got back on line." If that means that the program starts then you don't need to install any additional software.

Supervisor601, Check that the audio cable is connected to the correct input of the sound card. Check in the Windows Mixer that the input is enabled and the volume is 100%.

Thanks for catching that. I could have sworn i posted the 2.0 link.

Supervisor, under the "sound input" in scannercast do you have your soundcard selected?

In the audio sound input, I selected "Microphone ReakTek High Definition" as the soundcard.

The software works without any problems. The scanner is working and everything is hooked up correctly. (External headphone jack on front of the radio [Uniden BCT15X] to the back to the "mike in" on the tower.

Hi, I use a 15 for my feed. I use a RS shielded mono cable from the "Rec Out" on the 15 to the "Line In" on my PC, with scannercast. The Rec Out has an even preset volume level, and you can still listen to the scanner.

Also you can use the record function in the scanner to control what is sent to the sound card.

It worked without a hitch and sounds perfect. Please have a listen.
