• 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:

Confused, I brought out my old 296d. Remote mode, says it has to be activated. Got the manual out, as a pdf file, searching on remote mode, all its says is sometjing aboiut go to 3 them 5 in the manual. Have original able, and a usb cable, can not get the computer to hand shake with the scanner. what am I missing? Using ARC250 software, it has an auto detect function, radio is not being recognized thru either cable.

Check the baud rate settings in the scanner manually in settings, look and find your com port settings and make sure they match and pick that com port in your software settings.

Since it sounds like you might not have understood the menu setup in the manual, here's a page with much more explicit instructions

Radio Setup

Also keep in mind that if you are using Win8 or Win10 as your OS, the old USB drivers will no longer work. You will need either new drivers (if the cable is new enough to have drivers to recognize the new OS) or an entirely new cable. You can sometimes get a rolled back version of the drivers that Win8 or better will recognize. This is all discussed, along with MANY related links (it's a not-inconsiderable problem that Micro-stupid has caused...) here...
