sentinel is up to date but when I try to update the 536 and 436 it tells me that all information is up to date so now I'm confused on what is wrong and you cant get uniden to answer the phone

Are you trying to update the database, or the scanner firmware?

Have you tried force writing the database to the scanner?

BCD536HP Sentinel latest dB version is 1/15/2017. Seems something went wrong w/this week's download. Unfortunately, I'm out of the office until Monday, so cannot trigger a special download. Will likely resolve itself by then.

I'm also confused by "Sentinel is up to date but when I try..." statement, above. I can think of no situation where "Write to Scanner" would generate the implied info message.

At this moment 1/15/17 is the latest on the server. But, every morning files are copied from the development server to the production server. Occasionally that copy barfs...when that happens it normally resolves the next day. We'll see what happens at 9 AM Central...

I updated a couple of days ago, and my Sentinel database for my BCD536HP is 01/22/2017.
Same here. My BCD436HP updated just fine on Monday to 01/22/2017.

So if 1/15/17 is the latest version, that's sitting on Uniden's server, how come people are saying they have 1/22/17? How is it possible to have something newer than what's been made available??
