I tried that guide a couple years ago also with no success. There were just way too many variables involved to figure out which one or two might be the problem. With a command line that looks like: /usr/local/bin/rtl_fm -M am -f 124.55M -f 133.4M -f 121.6M -l 65 -p 69 -g 40 -t 0 -E pad -s 8k -|
lame -r -s 8 -m m -b 16 --cbr --lowpass 4 --scale 16 - - |
ezstream -c /etc/ezstream_bcfy.xml > /var/log/bcfy.log 2>&1 &
Where do you start debugging?

I have recently had good luck using a program called GQRX (GQRX.dk) And an sdr stick on a pi4 then using that to stream to BCFY by routing the audio through pulseaudio and darkice. However, GQRX takes some CPU horsepower And won’t run on the earlier pi’s. If you have a pi4 (Raspbian Buster OS), GQRX, pulseaudio, and darkice are all installable from RPi Configuration/Add Software. The output from GQRX will go to the internal sound card. Then, in pulseaudio, select the monitor of the internal card as the source for darkice.
