• 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:

for some reason i cant seem to get the scanner and the software to play nice. if i try to download from radio reference to freescan and then to the scanner it either freezes and leaves the scanner on hold or the frequencies get all mixed up. im really trying to avoid entering these things manually but it seems like the only solution. ive upgraded drivers and scanner firmware and still no luck. any suggestions?

yes. everything from RR to freescan seems fine. once i go to upload to scanner is where the problem starts. especially if i want to assign channels and groups

So then no, it doesn't complete the upload.

What error messages do you get if any?

I'm using freescan and BCT15X also and it works great. Make sure you have software installed correctly for the USB. Make sure your port and upload speed are correct also. In my case, I'm using the serial that came with the scanner and a serial to USB converter that I purchased locally that came with its own software.
