• 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:

The latest and greatest 996 version?

Sorry if this seems dumb, but as of today, 09-24-08, is the latest firmware version for the 996 2.00.06? Is there another, later version? I'm confused......

no the 2.00.6 is the latest version for the 996

there is other firmware available for people who had problems with the 2.00.6 and couldnt go back to V1
There is also a firmware released for those beta testing the upcoming firmware for Uniden to work out any bugs

Just wait another week the new firmware will be out

I understand most here are sworn to secrecy, but i'd like to know if anyone has tested a fix to these Simulcast systems. From what I read throughout the boards, it appears simulcast sites use a different decoding format then the current digital models are capable of. Has this issue been addressed or currently being "beta tested"? If it can't be discussed on the board, anyone can answer this via PM. I would also volunteer to beta test a firmware upgrade for simulcast sites, if one became available.

Since this thread is in regards to the V2 update, and V3 should be out next week, this thread can be closed/unstickied so as to help prevent confusion. I'll start a new thread when the new f/w is released.

We still expect this to happen on Tuesday, but it could be a day or so later, depending on final cleanup and setup issues...
