    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.

Ok, I have downloaded this software and it works perfect for Verizon, not so much for AT&T... It will send MP3 fine, but not AMR, am I doing something wrong between carriers??? They receive the page, but it says attachment too large and I have it set as small as possible...

I just moved my TTD v60 to a new computer, using alll the tone and config files that have been working fine. The program loads and seems to be waiting for tones, and it appears to respond to audio, but no detects. Then I noticed at startup i get an error. A screen shot is attached.... Suggestions appreciate.
Don't you just love those most helpful error messages?

My guess is that you need to select the sound card of the new computer. It is probably still looking for the sound card on the old computer. You mention that it "seems to respond to audio". Where do you see that indication?

First, everything is working fine now. I fiddled with audio settings (mostly raised the input level) and all is well, though the startup error still appears.

Good thought about looking for the old sound card.


I know the audio is working cause I see the green bar in the status window "move" in response to audio. Plus I see the program "log" the sampled frequency once the level breaks squelch.

Again, everything is working... I would not have posted the question if I had gotten it working, but now that the question is out there, and the error still is there at start up (though apparently not affecting anything), I am still curious.

Live and learn.

Download a free program called Audacity. From the menu bar Generate a tone set. Export it as a .mp3 file to a file on your computer. Move this to your mp3 player (iPod, iPhone, droid or whatever). Pull the audio plug out of your scanner and plug it into the earphone jack. Play the mp3 to feed the tone into TTD. Or you can just play the mp3 into an open mic. That will also open everyone's pager ;-).
Thanks Dc31, was not sure if there was a shortcut, Thanks everything working great. :)

Two Tone Detect Issue

I just downloaded Two Tone Detect 63. It is appears to have detected my departments tones, but did not send any e-mail. does any one have any suggestions? I have checked all of the e-mail settings and they appear to be correct. I checked the log file (attached) it says email not sent max tries exceeded. I'm not really sure what setting to change.

What email service or provider are you using? I looks like you have the program set up to use port 587, which uses STARTTLS authentication. The program is getting a reply back from the email server saying it doesn't support STARTTLS. You may need to use a different port depending on your email provider. 465 would be my best guess, but it will depend on your provider. Gmail uses 587, yahoo uses 465.

Thnaks Andy. I am now getting e-mails but am not receiving any audio files in text messages. Any suggestions? I'm thinking an ffmpeg issue?

I have a department that just uses a simple 1000hertz tone to alert for dispatches... In the very old version of twotone I used the 60hertz humm on the port with the 1000hertz to trigger an AB tone set... Well I have rebuilt everything and there is no more humm on the new equiment... I also upgraded to the latest version as I have started doing on my other twotonesetups... I am now using the longtone format with a tone length of 2... and not getting any trigger.. In the log when I start it states no atone found for the tone which is correct it's a long tone... Just wondering if I have to have a A/B defined even though there isn't any on this channel.

My department guys complain about that. I am not quite sure what is going on. They say the only get a selection of them. My email is listed first in the chain of emails and I dont really miss any. You might need to put some standard emails at the beginning and end of the recipients list and see how it goes.

Another issue could be that your email gateway (your ISP, Gmail, etc) is restricting the number of addresses you can send to. See if you can get some feedback and see if it is just random or if there is a cutoff where they start having issues.

Another possibility is the service provider is filtering them out for some reason.

Can you post more of your logs.txt please. That could show us if you are having difficulties with the conversion part. Is FFMpeg in the same folder as TwoToneDetect63.exe?

Thnaks Andy. I am now getting e-mails but am not receiving any audio files in text messages. Any suggestions? I'm thinking an ffmpeg issue?
If you send to a regular email address (not a phone) do you get the audio attachment? If so, you may not be sending to the correct phone address or the carrier may be blocking the attachment for some reason (may be too large).

This is an issue with gmail authentication. Basically gmail is suspicious since you're logging in from multiple locations so it's requiring an additional authentication step. You may want to set up an application-specific password for gmail to use with TTD to keep this from happening over and over again. To get around it temporarily just login to your gmail account via a browser and it should start working again.

Thanks, and thanks again.

First of all, thanks for making such an amazing program. It has been a huge asset for many of the EMA organizations in our county.

We have had TTD running smoothly on a Windows XP machine for a long time now, but the computer finally died. We have had another computer donated to our Rescue Squad with no operating system. Rather than spending our resources on purchasing a copy of Windows, I have been trying to get TTD running on Ubuntu, but with little success. Can you release a detailed tutorial on setting it up for Ubuntu?

I'm trying to install the latest version of TTD (v63) on Ubuntu 12.04 but when I open the TwoToneDetect63Pi.pyc file it says "There is no application installed for Python bytecode files." When searching for a program to open it, nothing appears in the list. I have thought about trying to run TTD in Wine, but would rather not. So, what steps do I need to take?

If I can get the program installed and running, I am confident in the setup, it's Linux/Ubuntu I am unfamiliar with.

Thanks for any advice or assistance, and sorry for the verbose post.
