• 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:

Hi, I just tried to upgrade my 436hp to the DMR upgrade. After entering the key and following the steps on the website the scanner gave me an invalid key error. Just wondering if anyone had any advice as to why it will not accept the key.

Enter the key using the scroll knob to select a digit or dash (not the keypad) just as you would enter a text tag. Be sure to enter the numbers and the dashes exactly as given.

Use the <4 and 6> key to move left or right to the digit position when entering the key, do not press "E" until the entire key is entered.

I entered the entire key and then pressed enter. It then said that the key was invalid but I entered it exactly as shown on the computer.

I believe there is a relationship between the key and the scanner's serial number/checksum. There is an outside chance that when you signed up for the upgrade, an error was made in entering the scanner serial number/checksum.

You might confirm your entries. If an error was made, contact Uniden for further assistance.
