Default XTS5000 Scan Issue

My Motorola XTS 5000 is not allowing me to scan more than two (2) channels. I use it exclusively in conventional mode with a few P25 (conventional) channels. It is a VHF & FPP model and has flashcode 560001-001307-0. I have the CPS and have tried multiple combinations to correct this. I would greatly appreciate any guidance to correct this issue.

Make sure the Conventional Personalities are tied to the appropriate scan lists and make sure both of those are associated with the correct zone/channel layouts.

To amplify a tad: when scan is invoked, your radio will scan whichever scan list is specified in the "personality" associated with the channel that is selected by the channel selector knob.

Unlike conventional programming (where the same personality can be associated with any number of channels), with an FPP radio a strict one-to-one channel/personality relationship is forced for the for 240 channels channels in the radio.

Thanks for the advice. This is my first - and hopefully ONLY - FPP model. So I'm learning and your advice helps immensely.
