• 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:

Hiya all.....

I have both the ARC250 & ARC780 programs. I have recently purchased a new computer that has only USB ports. I purchased a USB to serial connection and can't seem to get the programs to work. All the information I find in the program states it doesn't support USB. Is this true for even a USB-Serial Port adapter?

Anyone have advice?

Did you install the drivers that come with it onto your computer ????
I had the same problem when I got my new Inspiron 1300 notebook and went to RadioShack/The Source here in Canada and I bought usb 1.1 Adapter made by Nexxtech part # 2613297 it works great, just make sure you install the drivers that come with the adapter onto you computer.

You will need to change the com ports in the programs until you find the one that works.
