Default NXDN TGID format issue

I recently submitted some info on an IDAS-D (NXDN) system that I gathered using DSDPlus.

DSD+ reports talkgroup IDs (and radio IDs) in format n-nnn, which is what I submitted.

Recently, the talkgroup listing in RRDB was changed to format 00-nnnn, where nnnn represents the numbers I submitted. I tried inputting the talkgroups into Sentinel using this adjusted format. Sentinel reports "Invalid Talkgroup" when I do that, but it accepts n-nnn.

I cannot evaluate whether the talkgroups will be followed correctly by my Uniden 436 without taking another road trip, but I suspect this issue might be causing some complaints about Uniden scanner performance on these systems.

Dave, take a look at the system again, I've adjusted the TGID's to (maybe?) more accurately match what you submitted.

RRDB and Sentinel format for NXDN Icom IDAS decimal talkgroup is hh-gggg where hh is Home Repeater (1-30) and gggg is group ID (0001-2047)

So it appears that DSD+ is probably dropping leading zeroes, i.e. 1-119 would be 01-0119 in the RRDB and Sentinel.

I made the changes early Monday afternoon, so they won't be reflected in Sentinel until next week's database pull.

I have been able to add the properly formatted RIDs into Sentinel. You're right about the leading zeroes. I will post a comment about this issue into a DSDPlus thread as the difference can be confusing.

I have also been working under the presumption that the 1. in front of the network ID refers to the Area number. Again, I have to leave my house to test any of this because none of the sites can be received at home, so any confirmation or correction by knowledgeable folk is welcome.
