I have been monitoring 536HP tonight together with PRO-197.
When first turned scanner on, had FL2 enabled with some LA Trunk systems.
Switched to FL1 Sys 2 which is my LA Sheriffs. Twice within an hour period, the 536HP just resets on its own, with the initial screen, and back comes on my FL2. No power outage, nothing, PRO-197 keeps going, computers keep going. just the 536HP stops dead, resets, and. Checked the power connections, seems all right. Anyone else experience this automatic reset. Thought I saw somewhere on RRDB but cannot find. Please HELP.

The latest 536HP firmware has a low Voltage watchdog due to problems with the scanner loosing audio when left on and starting a car or truck.

You may have a bad AC power adapter that is causing the Voltage to drop to the level of the Voltage watchdog??

Might want to try a different/more robust power supply for a test.
