• 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:

Is there a way to display the "position" in the LCD display?
They used to be called channels.........
Also, after i check items to scan (from the scanner), then start scanning THEN go back to add items, the items i had already checked are now unchecked. Is that normal?
Thank you

The 800 is a mystery to me as well. I have one and have given up trying to figure out why it does what it does sometimes. There are times when I am displaying certain lists, and they are scanning, but when viewing them in the master list, they are deselected. Every now and then I can find a "members of" sublist of I assume ScanListSets, but no rhyme or reason about when or if I can see that listing, or if it is even displaying accurate information when I do find it. Good luck!

I know what you mean, i use the GRECOM Ez scan software and it has its limits too.
Maybe i have to make up a chart similar to a family tree showing what systems and users i have selected.
If you find a fix, maybe you could email me off list?

Thanks for answering

When you say "Position" do you mean the "ALPHA TAG" like Dispatch, Fire Ground, NCIC, Car to car?

I just duplicated the 800 not saving scanlist changes when using the radio, not the software.

While scanning, I pressed MENU then selected SET SCANLISTS and made changes. Even when backing out and saving the changes, it didn't.

It did save the changes when I pressed the menu button, then selected MAIN MENU, then selected SCANLISTS. Made my changes here, backed out and it scanned what I wanted.
