Hi everyone, I have a problem and hope someone here can help. I have a Uniden 796D that is at Ver. 3.27 and I can not get my scanner to communicate with my computer. I am using the same cable that I use to program my 780xlt so I know its not the cable. The cable is a USB/Serial my computer is running Windows 8 and I even tried my laptop which runs XP and still can not get my scanner to communicate.
did you change the PC control speed under the 796D menu? by default I think its set to OFF
have you tried using ARC250 to see if you can communicate with the 796D? even if you dont own ARC250 you can use it for a trial period and test to see if it communicates.
Just downloaded ARC250 and get the same message, I checked device manager and made sure the port was running the same buad rate as the scanner. Still nothing, is there a remote mode to turn on? or just the baud rate setting?
