Any changes in the database here are only made available to your software once per week.
I think that is on Saturday for the PSR-800 and on Monday for the Uniden HP-1. So any changes made after those days must wait until the database is made available to the software up to a week later.
Say GRE pulls the database at exactly midnight on Friday night, then a database admine makes a database change at midnight and one minute, that change will not reflect in the scanner for at least a week.
If it is a simple change, you can always add it in manually using the EZ-Scan software but if a lot of changes were made, it may be best to just wait a week for the official release to become available to the software.
I'm sure there is a reason the database is only updated in the software once per week. I don't know the answer to that one though other than maybe to conserve bandwidth useage which could be great if everyone updated their radios every day!
I have seen mid week updates before for GRE and Unidens but that is rare and was only done when some type of bad data snuck into the scanners software version of the database. I think I've only seen that happen once or twice at that.
