I had not heard of the missed transmissions. Good to know. By TG Scan, do you mean group lists?

What is the current limit?

We have been doing this for Motorola for how long now? Is it really surprising for this manufacturer?

I'm guessing in the coming days there will be another round of firmware for the CD800D and CS750 for us all to beta test.
Have you tried the 20.11 version of firmware that was released last week? I haven't seen a lot of these issues with mine as yet.

No, not group lists. Simply creating a scan list with some talk groups in it. When this is done and you try to scan these TG's it will miss at lot of transmissions. Likewise when just sitting on a TG not scanning. The radio will miss a lot of transmissions.

The current zone channel capacity is 16.

Yes I'm running version 20.11. I even made a very basic code plug and I'm still experiencing the issues I mentioned above.

Default hit or miss

I have been dealing with my cs800d with the same issues as others. I have an MD-380 and a MD-390 and both of them are working just fine, however as I gaze upon the 800D it will simply show it is receiving but no audio and nothing on the display. Another thing it will do is sometimes when it does receive it will not always display the information associated with the remote user. sometimes I can make it work if I happen to notice it is working and guess correctly which talk group is active I can key the mic and it will sometimes open up and begin working. I have also found if I scroll up or down off what is an active TG it will sometimes work. I have kept the contacts to a minimum and I do not use the scanning. But as others have stated it will be on the talk group and remain quiet while my little cheap 380 or 390 work great. I like the idea but it is seriously flawed. I may go with a plain ole CS800 as I hear it works well. I do have the latest firmware and I have a codeplug from a local ham who has the CS800 and he has not had any issues sadly it did not do the trick for me. The problem is with the radio and until it is fixed I would not recommend buying one. I will also note they are not for sale at this time. It may be they ran out or they may be tired of dealing with all the complaints.
