• 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:

Initially when the firmware was released I had trouble logging on, and there were problems the day before. So maybe they are updating or changing things around. When I downloaded, I had dial up speeds. who know, weekends are prime times for computer "upgrades" though.

Now there is two "released" firmware versions that are not the official version .7
That is point .6 a prior version and then 2.01.0 Some, (many) are having trouble with the officially released version, and on a case by case basis, other firmware was released.

I would post the problem here, so everybody knows the problems you are having... and then email Upman and tell him. He can authorize the other firmware to fix the problems.

As far as I can tell I am not having problems with my 396 using the original upgrade 2.00.07. When I was reading about somebody having 2.01 I tried uniden.com to see if a new update had been released. That is when I found out I could not get onto uniden.com.

Yes, it's for problems with the BCD396, and trust me you don't want those types of problems, but it may get released quickly after testing.

With the new firmware, the BCD396 does not have a backward path for going back to the V.1 firmware unless you send your scanner to uniden. So, this is still a beta version and if you are not having problems, you're not missing anything.
