The channel name text tags (and a lot more data to use for text tags) comes from the scanner via the RS-232 port. What kind of scanner are you using to supply the feed? RadioFeed Metadata tab is where the RS-232 setup is. A media player must support metadata. WinAmp supports metadata.I guess I should have been clearer of what I am looking for. Does anyone have or can they post a sample of the channel list that RadioFeed uses to supply the channel names?
Blinking lights indicate the scanner is talking to RadioFeed. Enter %C in the Custom Format box. You should see the channel name text tags in the Metadata box.I have a BCT8, it is connected to the rs232, the little lights in the radio feed program are blinking.
I have programmed all the channel names in the radio.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I see "154.7400" when it's locked on a frequency. It seems like you want the text tag to show and not the frequency. Do you have text tags programmed in the scanner?It shows the name of my scanner
Does the scanner display show the channel name? Try a %S and %G to see if that will show the channel name.Was just watching the meta data space, when the scanner stops on a channel it goes blank, when the scanner resumes it again shows "Scanning Tehama SO & Corning PD"
The BCT8 does not do alpha tags. All you will be able to display is the frequency and/or talk group.Yea that's what i get if i put &F i get the freq, But when I put in %C all I get is Scanning Tehama SO & Corning PD. I do have the text programmed in the scanner. Just looked again to make sure.
