• 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, i have a HP1 and I'd like to download my local freq database from RR to it. Actually I used to be knowledgable on how-to years ago but i have forgotten it all since i moved a few years ago and havent been active with it. I have updated all the firmware and Sentinel software. I just bought a premium subscription to RR and i have the 7 day trial of the ARC software (if i even need that).

I figured out how to download the database. it saves to my desktop as a Windows file. Im not sure how to get it onto the HP1 now. Sorry if this is a real newb question.

Id also like to add on a few extra freqs to the database list once its in my HP1. I need help knowing how to manually enter freqs to the database list on my scanner so it scans those freqs right along with the database at the same time. thanks for your help

I just got a Homepatrol and started using it over the weekend.

You need to have the HP-1 connected to your computer via the USB cable. Then, using Sentinel software, download the newest database. Then write it to the HP-1.

Believe it or not, you don't need a premium subscription to RR to get the database for the HP using Sentinel. Sentinel is the only way to get updates and upgrades from Uniden and RR.
Arc-Patrol gives you a few extras, but can't be used to upgrade firmware and DSP.
