Thanks for the tip. Unfortunately, it didn't work. Program still sits at an empty prompt and does nothing, although two instances still appear in task manager.

Stumped.
Try downloading an older version and see if that produces the same problem. Make sure you restart after you install the older version before you try to run it.

Are you using any special characters in the tone description? If so, try removing them and see if that clears the problem up for you.

Yeah that's all normal, working fine. You may try sending to those phones as an AMR instead of mp3 (use the amr_emails field), or reducing the bit rate of the mp3 encoder to make the mp3 files smaller (in the edit config window).

Tool I used in tasting

Hi everyone, I just wanted to put this out if anyone needs it. When I was setting up TTD on my laptop at first I had just my email and phone number to test it. After setting it all up I used an APP for my Droid X phone called Ted Tones Out it's in the market. It's a Two tone (Motorola Minitor®) sequential pager tone generator. Allows user to input tone frequencies, tone durations and an optional voice dispatch message.

When testing I was using the microphone on mu laptop to pick up the tones. this way I didn't have to wait on a dispatch to see if I had set it up right. With Ted Tones Out I can also use it to send out special announcements to members like training tonight at 1900 or work bee today at 0800, Thanks everyone for your input.

Hi All,
Thanks for a great product. I have set it up and received this message: Fire Department 1 page recieved at 18:00:23. I am assuming that the software is working but did not receive an email with the audio file. I believe I have the email info correct. outbound.att.net port 465. any ideas?

What version are you using? The BCC was just added in version 55. For some reason, SourceForge was listing version 54c as the latest version, so I've fixed that. The BCC option should be right between the MP3 Encoding Bitrate and the Save & Exit button.

Hi Andy

Thanks for the quick response. I am not sure what version it is because I looked for that too and couldn't find it. Could you tell me where Please where that info is located? And if I do have the older version I will certainly download the newest. Thanks again.

It's in the filename for the .exe file. TwoToneDetect54c.exe is version 54c, TwoToneDetect55.exe is version 55, etc.

thank you and quick question

thank you aaknitt for this great program, i have been running it non stop for months without a problem.

quick question : i am starting to add alot of tones and numbers , is there a way to incorporate possibly a spreadsheet instead of notepad ? ( putting cell numbers into columns ) as i add numbers i have to scroll way over to get to the end of the list.

thank you again

Hi Pete
I started a file in Notepad and after I add an email or text number. I just copy and paste. I hope this helps.

IO Err Invalid number of channels

Andy,

Excuse me if this one has been answered previously, I can't find it. I am trying to set up V55 on a vista computer. the tone detection algorithm seems to be working fine but no emails being sent. It seems to indicate an invalid number of channels. Any suggestions?

Thanks

Jim

I seem to remember something similar in a previous post, although I can't find it at the moment. If I recall correctly, restarting the program or the computer (can't remember which) seemed to fix it.
