• 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:

My feed has been disconnecting for the past few weeks. At times, it seems like it discon's and con's every 2 minutes or so. For the most part, the RR website shows my feed as offline as the feed loses it's connection more than it stay's connected. Pop up error indicates connection has been lost. As a couple of other posts suggested, I have uninstalled my antivirus while troubleshooting this problem.

Ping tests show very minimal packet loss when pinging audio3.radioreference.com.

Ping statistics for 174.37.110.68:
Packets: Sent = 555, Received = 553, Lost = 2 (0% loss)
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 40ms, Maximum = 54ms, Average = 44ms

I am getting a perfect LAN connection and have not had issues with any other IP based apps or website performance. I swapped out hardware, downloaded a new copy of ScannerCast and no joy. Nothing in my config has changed to cause the problem to appear.

Below is a clip from the SC logfile:
07-Sep-2011 13:21:43 Write to Icecast server failed Unable to write data to the transport connection: An established connection was aborted by the software in your host machine.
07-Sep-2011 13:21:43 Disconnect details follow (for debugging if necessary):

I welcome any and all suggestions.

Thank you,
Vince
