I actually had most of a labview app written to program the MR8100... only issue was parsing the text tag in order to "compress" it uniden style. ended up giving up on it, but I thought GFC was supposed to release a windows based programmer that didnt depend on the scan.exe file...
From the PC Manual it looks like you might need a null modem adapter.
Edit: GFC's troubleshooting document says the Uniden document is wrong and a null modem cable should not be used. They specify a straight one to one cable. I don't have a MR8100 and cannot test this. I think the Uniden program only works on COM 1. Also it might only run properly in real DOS. Fast computers could be a liability on a program as old as scan.exe.
Hi I just aquried a MR-8100 I have spent about 30 mins seaching for a manual and found one on mods.dk but I cant find what I need to know in it. I know that there are 3 power wires and after a little testing I know the red is hot and Black and Green are negitive wires. what I need to know is what each negitive wire is.I am asuming black is the ground and green I am just guessing is toretain memory. can someone please tell me if I have it right for the Green and black wires and also how many channels this holds.
