Hi I have bad news for you that scanner will not do nxdn, you will need a trx-1 or trx-2 from whistler.
or uniden bcd325p2 , bcd436hp, bcd536hp, sds100 or sdr 200 with nxdn paid upgrade.
Sorry for bad news, some of these can be had used.

I agree with tyytor. One option would be to perform a discriminator tap on your BC780XLT and then use DSDPlus to decode the NXDN. One last cheap option is to purchase a couple of SDR usb dongles and set them up with DSDPlus to decode NXDN, some good brands are Nooelec or RTL-SDR . One last thing is the Whistler TRX models don't truly trunk NXDN while the Uniden models do.
