• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Prolific PL-2303

The Uniden USB to Serial Cable uses the Prolific PL-2303 chip. The current version is 2.0.2.1, (for Windows XP). If you are a member of the Yahoo BCD396T group, it is available there, but if you are not, a Google search should locate drivers for you (think "Prolific")

Thx

I just wanted to say thanks for this info. I too was confused on how Uniden was sending me on a wild goose chase to find the driver. You would think that Uniden would provide the driver for a cable that they sell for their radio. It makes no sense!

Its on the site, but you have to register, log in, and its listed under scanners I think. It should be under accessories or something.

Yeah i did the whole log in thing, and then went to my scanners listed downloads and still nothing..I even looked at the accessories and found the usb cable and clicked on the link for download driver and it just takes you back to the general download page. I spent like 20 minutes surfing the site logged in and out, still to no avail at finding it. Then i just googled the thing and it brought up R.R., so i just came here and searched on my own.

It's on the Uniden download page people just tent to miss it. It's between the SC230 and the BC246TUASD downloads.

Wow..I feel so stupid now...it was staring at me the whole time...i guess if i had known that i did not have to click on my scanner to get it i would have maybe found it.
I guess i needed a link on the scanners download page to find it...So to sum it up, i'm apparently blind.
