• 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 posted this in the Admin forum with no responses. I thought if I asked here more people would see this and maybe be able to help. I hope this is acceptable. I thought I'd seen related threads in the past but was unable to locate them.

My feed has worked like a charm for the last three months. After changing the primary description I am having numerous audio problems. I changed nothing on my setup. Just logged in with scannercast and reconfigured.

My feed pops, makes a bubble sound, and digital sounds (even though not digital), and the alpha tags no longer work. Regardless of which player I use it seems to start and stop. I've listened to my feed from different computers with the same results. I can listen to other feeds with no problems. My scanner woks fine and it is clear when heard through the PC speakers.

Please give a listen and see what you think:
Grove City and Hilliard Police and Fire Live Scanner Audio Feed

I rebooted my PC, cable box and modem, scanner, scannercast, checked all connections, PC sound settings, and RR changed me to another server and the problem continues. I have since discontinued sending tags. RR admin suggested I use a ping software which I have but I am unable to analyze the information.

One thing that is odd is there is usually a 30 second delay, just a part of streaming. Now, at times, the audio is only a few seconds after the actual transmission.

Any assistance with the above problem would be greatly appreciated.

It's not Scannercast

I downloaded RadioFeed and the problem continues. RadioFeed actually logs activity, and I can see the feed disconnects from the server about every 30 seconds. This morning the feed was disconnecting more according to the stat page graph. It showed it off-line for 6 hours (while I was away) before I got a page.

Problem Cleared Up

I don't know what happened but the feed is back to normal (at the moment). I am going to continue to run RadioFeed for now, even though I don't think it was a factor.
