Advanced Tab (optional)

Tag Formatting and Audio Options
- If sending alpha tags, you can set Custom Format & Scanning Tags settings as needed
- Choose “Stereo” if running a stereo (Left & Right) feed from two scanners. Bit rate is automatically selected.
- (Not yet available)
- Before you can run ScannerCast, you need to have the Microsoft .NET Framework V2.0 (or later) installed on your computer. Vista or Windows 7 will already have the .NET Framework installed so you do not need to do anything.
- This special edition of ScannerCast for Radio Reference Live Audio is supported on systems running Windows 2000 or later. ScannerCast has been tested and is known to work on Windows 2000, Windows XP (32-bit and 64-bit), Windows XP Embedded, Windows Server 2003 (32-bit and 64-bit), Windows Vista (32-bit and 64-bit), and Windows 7 (32-bit and 64-bit) systems.
- Once you select the feed to stream, ScannerCast will automatically load all the needed information from your feed page. This includes your feed description. You are not able to modify your feed description via this special RR edition of ScannerCast. Use the help tab on your feed owner's page to request changes be made to your RR Live Audio feed. We will try to honor your request, but we will be the final judge as to the feed description. We need to maintain a standard so requests like “Change my feed description to Bob’s Scanner feed” will not be approved.
- You may have to allow ScannerCast through your firewall. See the RR Live Audio Wiki on alternate streaming ports.
- Please also refer to Setting Up Your Broadcasting Station for information on connecting your radio and computer to broadcast your feed and to set the proper audio level from your scanner to the streaming computer for the best clear sound.
