• 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 full message reads: RadioRefDisconnected, wait retrieving HTTP data. It appears after I have opened my BUTEL software for a Uniden 996T. The software was purchased prior to joining RR, and I am a paying member of RR. The software does control the radio, successfulling reading the systems. I welcome and would appreciate any assistance. Are there drivers that are unique to RR for a connection?

Is it the latest version of the software? There was a change made to RR in August that requires new versions of software that downloads from RR. Most vendors have updated their programs.

Version 3.02.00

Yes. I had sent the unit to Uniden for the update, and to verify all ports were working in June 2009. The Butel software works computer to radio. It is possible that I do not fully understand the first steps to necessary to establish a connection with RR. I am hoping someone has seen this before.
Thanks, Ed

You don't have the latest version of Butel's software. It has nothing to do with your scanner.

and how would one go about doing that? There's nothing in the software, and the versions for download on the website are all trials, but I paid for a version that now won't download anything from RR...

It's been a long time since I used BuTEL software, but don't you just download the version available on the BuTEL site and it automatically takes your registration info from the previous version? Seems to me that I recall that being how you upgrade, and it's pretty well spelled out.
