• 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:

Hello all,
I have a 996 that is connected to 1 computer 24/7 streaming Butel Easystream and a WMP stream which all works great. My question is there a way to use the rear port to connect to another computer to run ARC996 for logging and/or programming without having to stop the Easystream feed ?

Thanks,
Craig

You can connect the rear port (use a null modem and adjust the speed), but whether the scanner will give you logging output on both ports at the same time (you want the same data on the back port that you're streaming from the front port) is something you'll have to experiment with or ask Paul.

This is not possible, you can not control and program the scanner using both ports at the same time. Even if it was possible the scanner goes into a program mode when programming data so that would stop the Eazystream display feed.
