Hello
Help please:
I have a BCD325p2 scanner that was upgraded for DMR before i bought it.
It is not decoding any DMR channels, before I blame the scanner and since I didn't upgrade it
Can anyone familiar with this upgrade give me a step by step instruction list on getting it to work.

Thank You

Just tune it to a DMR frequency. Nothing fancy you need to do. Are you sure it has the upgrade?

Make sure you install the latest firmware. There have been some improvements recently.

True, but even if he has the old firmware, he should hear something.

I got it to work on a DMR station
I had to change the DMR threshold from auto to 8.
Problem is if you move the scanner a couple of inches from the sweet spot you lose it.
Only the DMR behaves this way the p25 channels are much easier to stay on.
I don't understand why this happens because the scanner has great sensitivity on all bands.
any ideas
