• 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:

Hello,

Have a HomePatrol-1

Getting going again, so trying to update everything.

I now have, and am presumably using:

Sentinel vers. 2.03

and on the unit's screen:
Firmware 2.06
Database 11/27/2016

So all good so far. Right ?

But the Help vers comes up in the unit as 12/07/2011

2011 !!

Is there a newer one ?
If so, how do I find it, and how do I download to the HP-1 ?

Thanks for help,
Bob

That is the newest version of the HP-1 help files. There have been some small differences in the general operation of the scanner since production began, but not much has changed in the physical operation of the scanner since it was introduced.

If a firmware update significantly changed anything with how the scanner is operated, and if Uniden published a corresponding new help file, it would be written to the card during the usual update process.

Smaller changes in firmware worth mentioning can usually be found here:

or within UPMan's postings in the forums.

In addition to what fxdscon noted, there is an "Easier to Read" manual for the HP-1/HP-2 series and their version of Sentinel:
Easier to Read HomePatrol-1/HP-2 Digitall Scanner and Sentinel Manual
