    BCD436HP: Update BCD436HP Database without Sentinel Software

    Hello, unfortunately the only Windows laptop I have is my work computer. My company has the permissions pretty locked down so I am unable to install Sentinel. Is there a way to update the database and/or the firmware without having to use the sentinel software? Can I insert the SD card into the...

    Sentinel Trouble

    Sentinel has been troublesome recently. I have been trying to program my sds100, and when I upload the lists I create to the unit, either nothing gets transfered over, or only a bit gets written. This doesn't just apply to new favorites lists either, but also settings, and list orders that I...

    Sentinel and profiles

    I have a question concerning profiles, or more specifically, the deletion of profiles, in Sentinel. I've never really played around with multiple profiles in the past; just created my Favorites Lists, transferred them to the radio, and then made modifications as needed. However, within the past...

    SDS200 Probably Not Understanding A Basic Thing?

    Hi All, I'm relatively new with my SDS200, I bought last month. I've had very little time to read up on DMA tech or much detailed op of the scanner. My previous scanner was a yellow portable Uniden of some sort with a fixed # of "channels" with a ducky*. I bought that thing maybe 20 years...

    Sentinel SDS100

    I am trying to program my sds100 with sentinel and sentinel seems to be missing some channels from it's database, while radio reference shows that. How can I manually put the frequencies in the scanner itself?

    Zip Code Search Returns All Sites

    It seems that when I do a zip code search (29420, for example), I get the local trunking (P800) talk-groups I'd expect with my distance setting, but all the sites statewide. I would have expected to only get the local sites, too. Since there are over 300 site freqs in the state on this system, I...

    SDS100: SDS100 has broken my brain

    Hi all, I've been scanning since the days of the 10-channel regency rock-bound radios, and have used pretty much ever evolution of scanners monitoring across North America. My newly-acquired SDS-100 has broken me and I hope a kind member can help guide me along the path to SDR-scanner...

    Did your Sentinel stop working, reinstall doesn't help, read this post

    I've experienced this and others I've helped have as well, seems like Sentinel out of the blue corrupts it's own config file.... if yours stops opening when you click the icon yet you are able to open it under a different user login, read this.... a reainstall does not help as that does not...

    HPE files for VIC?

    Hi, Just procured a new SDS100 and am starting to wrap my head around Sentinel - it is obviously very US/Canada centric, but with the release of this and similar models in Australia, I was hoping to find an easy way to import frequencies into the SDS100...from what I can gather, Sentinel HPE...

    Sentinel Favorites Updates

    I've been using Sentinel for programming most of my newer Uniden products since it first came out but I just realized something. When I update the Master Database it doesn't update my Favorites lists with the new info. How do I update my Favorites without creating a new one? Seems like that...

    Migrating from BC436 to SDS100, can it be done?

    I am sure someone has already done it or provided reference on how to do excuse the redundancy. Waiting on the SDS100 to come in and already have a BC436 that has all the FL and other settings the way I like them Is it "that" easy to just write the 436 profile to the SDS100? Or am I...

    I just received my STS 100 yesterday. Love it BTW. I've set up a few Favorite Lists in Sentinel for my area. I live in NW Houston, TX (Harris County). My problem is that when I set up a FL with the Talk Group I want from the TxWARN system, Sentinel not only loads the talk group in my list but it...
