    BCD436HP: Scanning San Bernardino County Fire on Uniden 436HP Error

    Hello, I have the Uniden BCD436HP and trying to scan San Bernardino County Fire (CONFIRE). But, it doesn’t work. It says, “scan mode, nothing to scan” I don’t know what I’m doing wrong or if it’s just not working. I’ve tried and tried. I’m using Sentinel as well. One person told me to use the...

    SDS100: Not able to scan custom FL with manually entered conventional frequencies

    All - I've spent quite a bit of time searching the Internet and browsing through the "Easier to Read" online manual, but I've got a Favorites List for my SDS100 that I created using Sentinel - consists solely of manually entered (in Sentinel) conventional frequencies - all "Aviation = simplex"...

    Sentinel: Does updating database in Sentinel update information in Favorites list?

    Sorry if this is a dumb question, but I'm trying to understand the functioning of the software and the scanner. If there is an update to a trunk system in a favorites list, will this be updated automatically in the appropriate favorites list(s)? For example, if frequencies changed for a site...

    SDS100: Are avoids not working, or am I missunderstanding?

    Sorry if this post is too long, but I'm not sure what information is relevant. I purchased the sds100 after watching some videos, thinking I could use the Sentinel software to avoid the things in the database that I don't want to hear, program the scanner, and then have the scanner not scan...

    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...
