I just installed Live ATC Chatter. I read the manual and set and save some livestreams in it. Then I open FS9, select com2, freq. 118.00 but I hear nothing and LAC says LAC is ready. From which point is LAC is going to work? I see also no action in the program, also no red and green bullets. So there is something wrong.

Hello Have you scanned the streams in LiveATC to see if the are activesometimes streams are down at LiveATC.net Here is a scan in progress any red light against a stream will indicate the stream is down.Also check that you have Com2 selected in LiveATChttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/192916.jpg

All streams are working in my winampplayer. I thought it was my installation. I have FS9 on my D partition and also Live ATC Chatter. I try to install Live ATC Chatter on my C drive but it's still not working. I also try mp3 from the archives but also no action. When I'm running FS, Live ATC Chatter still gives that everything is ready. No connection messages or something.

B.t.w. there is a fault in the manual. You can't get the livestream from liveatc.net selecting the name of the stream on the page, you must first start the stream in winamp or another player from there you can save the stream. That is how I did it

Actually, the manual was correct, it is simply that the Live ATC web site changed the way you can save files a couple weeks ago.When you go into the available feeds, if you click on the feed title, i.e. 'KBOS-Boston Grounds', a 'download window' should pop-up so you can save the file....as far as your other issue....did you 'import' your m3u files before adding them into to your program? It's a bit 'quirky' to get set up, but once you have it working, it works great. I didn't 'import' files at first and had a similar problem as you are having...but it was my fault for not reading and understanding the manual ;)You can also get help at cielosim web page, then go to the forum.http://cielosim.com/EDIT: For whatever reason, it looks like the forum is down right now. This is fairly new, so hopefully they will get it straightened out soon.

The streams don't play. I made a scan, all bullets are green. I start Live ATC Chatter, starting FS9 from there, turning my com2 radio on the first frequency 118.000 but no action and Live ATC Chatter give still status: Live ATC Chatter ready, no buffering or playing streams. And now?

It works! The streams are running. I don't know what I do but I'm switching between com1 and 2 in Live ATC Chatter and than the streams starting to play. I also have the beep sound. Are the streams starting when you create a flight in FS or doesn't matter that? I normaly create no flight in FS, only in FS Nav and I load it in Radar Contact 4. But the volume from my engines from my plane are louder then the volume of the streams. All streams are on 100% but the engines, and I think the sound from Radar Contact 4 too, are louder. Where can I fix that so everything all sound is on one level?

http://www.quicksoundswitch.toflo.de/. If you have a USB headset, you can use this free program to hear the Live ATC chatter or Radar Contact 4 or both, through the headset. All other sounds IE: engines, would come through your other speakers. Then if you want, you can stick Game Commander 3 in there for voice commands. Almost like the real world LOL. Bob

If you could find a headset, it makes a world of difference. I bought a headset at Radio Shack for $9.99 2 years ago. I think the brand name was Gigaware.

Lower the volume of your engines: Options -> Settings -> Sound

But only the volume of the engines going lower or also the overall sound, also from RC4? So that's not the intention.

There are simply some live streams that are not that loud, which is why Live ATC Chatter provides you the option of adjusting each frequency separately, not only the medium volume level within the 'Actions + Info' window. Double check you have 'choose Com 2' under settings, and un-check 'universal volume control'.I agree with some others, and would highly recommend a good set of headphones. That, in conjunction with the sound adjustments within Live ATC and FS should provide you with a good compromise for each to work well. remember, Live ATC Chatter provides volume levels totally separate and independent from FS sound levels.

I still don't understand the point of 'live ATC Chatter'. What real advantage is there over just tuning in an ATC Stream over the Web?I just don't see what added value this program adds to my flight sim experience for 20 bucks .

Are only the livestreams on liveatc.net working on Live ATC Chatter or also other livestreams from other websites?And whatabout the streams with more frequency's? Some streams have delivery, ground, tower on one stream so you can't give them a frequency on com2.

HelloMostly the ability to tune to streams using com2 and being able to save steams as sets and switch between them in flight with your radioHere are some city pairs set up in the favorites list notice the frequency's to tune to these streamshttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/193004.jpgHere are the streams being scanned to check they are active at LiveATC.net , you can then just change ATC units in flight without leaving FSX.So for instance i have just landed at KSFO i just tune my com2 to 118.60 and i have live KSFO ground control playing, much better than leaving FSX and loading the streams manually into your media player.The frequency lists are also printable for use in flights. For me it is all about not having to break the immersion factor during a flight just to change streams.http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/193005.jpg

These are question that Alex can probably answer best at www.cielosim.com in the forum section.It is probably not a good idea to clutter this forum with questions about someone else's product.

Do you have to search for the streams or does it scan the internet for you? Every time I've ever done that it seems half of them are 'off line'.

I notice some problems with using Live ATC Chatter en Radar Contact. The sound from Live ATC Chatter and Radar Contact going through each other. I use com1 for Radar Contact en com2 for Live ATC Chatter. How can I fix that. So that's not good.

Listen...Live ATC Chatter works fine. I use it all the time with RC and have no issues with it at all in terms of working as advertised, including the limitations, quality, or availability of streams the program has no control of. If you don't like how it operates, don't use it.Pretty simple.If you have suggestion, I recommend you visit their forum and post your issues, problems, or concerns.
