• 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:

New CPU update for WS1095/98 and TRX-2 will be available at 3:30 CST/4:30 EST FRIDAY 12/16/16

New release of PC apps are available for the TRX-1 and TRX-2

* Changed handling of NXDN Type-D talkgroup imports to handle a change in the library format starting with version 5.01.
* Fixed issue with importing the incorrect RAN values on conventional channels with a value higher than 15
* Fixed issue on NXDN trunked sites where a RAN value higher than 15 was not being properly stored.

There will be a change in how NXDN Type-D talkgroup IDs are handled. This change is already implemented in the CPU firmware and in the PC App (3.1). However, it is not yet exposed in the released Library (version 500). The next Library release (version 501, which will be the normal weekly build available on Saturday morning) will incorporate this change.

A Type-D system imported in the scanner prior to Library 501 will need to be deleted and reimported manually. Any Type-D system imported using pc app (3.1) regardless of library version will be imported correct. PC app version 3.0 will no longer import correct values after Library 501.

Library version 500 and below:
* Talkgroups Imported in PC App version 3.0 are correct and will not need to be reimported
* Talkgroups imported in the scanner will need to be reimported once library 501 is available.
* PC App version 3.1 will import this format without issue

Library version 501 and above
* Talkgroups imported in the PC App 3.0 will no longer be correct without upgrading to 3.1
* Talkgroups imported in the scanner will be correct
* PC App version 3.1 will automatically make the adjustment to the new format when available.
