I'm having a problem downloading my favorites list from sentinel to my 536. I made an addition to my favorites list and I tried to write it from my computer to my radio but it is NOT downloading into the scanner. Any help would be great thank you.
Hi nope It's not downloaded. I tried the second thing and it's not on the radio.Just thinking about all possibilities. . .
Are you sure that it is not downloading the Favorites List as compared to the FL is downloaded, but is not being scanned?
On your scanner, try Menu>Manage Favorites and scroll to see if the FL is present.
There are many things that could keep a FL from being scanned, even though the FL is in the scanner.
I tried to write from the radio to the computer NO luck. It seems to me that the computer is no longer reading the scanner but DID when I first downloaded my FL.Are you able to do a "Read from scanner"? That might be helpful in knowing whether your computer and scanner are talking with each other.
Also, are you able to update the Master Database from Sentinel to your scanner? Another way of confirming the scanner-computer communication is happening as it should.
If both of the above work correctly, then there has to be something with Sentinel and the particular Favorites List. I know Upman previously suggested checking whether the Download and Monitor were set to on. Perhaps you could try creating another Favorites List to see what happens with that.
