    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:

Said eject the usb port leave plugged in turn off unit and turn back on and the new firmware will load. It is not doing that it just loads to the main screen.. What am I doing wrong.

There has not been a firmware update issued for the HP-2 since it was released.

Hmmm sentinel keeps saying there is and keeps loading
Mine doesn't.

I have both versions of Sentinel in my pc because of the various radios. The x36 one occasionally prompts for an update for firmware, but there has not been a firmware upgrade for the HP2 and that software has not prompted me except I updated the HP1 a month or so ago.
