    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:

BCD436HP: Feature request: Display of time and date during playback

I use the scanner to record unattended a lot. What would be useful is that, instead of having the current date and time displayed when playing back saved recordings, have the date and time that recording started instead. I know the information is saved as part of the filename but sometimes my recordings will span days and it would be nice when hearing something during playback to be able to look at the date and time display on the scanner and see the date and time of that specific recording. I realize that it's probably not practical to have the date and time played back as the recording is going but at least have the date and time when that specific clip started for more context.
