I just bought a bcd996xt and when i use microsoft remote desktop i cant get the audio to come out on my remote computer. i can play songs on my hard drive and get audio.I am using bctools as my programing software. I also have a feed going out to radioreference witch works fine. when i conect with remote desktop and go into my audio window microsoft RDP AUDIO DRIVER takes controll and i have no settings like mic it is shadded out. and also can you tell me on the scanner can you use the rear data to control the scanner or is that just for GPS.
Yes, you can use the rear port on the 996XT to control the scanner, same as front (except you can't replace firmware on rear port). You just need to make sure the baud rate is set appropriately in the scanner menus.
