• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

ProScan vs Sentinel

Hi everyone! I am new to Uniden scanners and I have been using both of the subject programs for my radios. A question I have is how do I, when writing my favorites to the scanner, have ProScan erase and replace all the current favorites already on the scanner. When writing favorites to the scanner with Sentinel it gives you the option.

Thanks

No response since yesterday so I'll add a little something. I don't have an answer for your specific question. I use Sentinel for 99% of handling the data on the radio. There has been a few cases back many months ago I used ProScan for editing as it did it easier than Sentinel and I'm not recalling what it was. I like how ProScan's editor shows the data better so I have it pointing to the directory Sentinel uses. While using ProScan to control and capture data I can easily see how I have it organized with the editor and make notes about changes. I'm sure I could make simple changes to the data and write from ProScan, but I will do that in Sentinel. Efficiency at this point in life is not important to me. :)

P.S. There is a ProScan section that the author monitors and other that are more knowledge can help. I believe the link will get you into the section at the point of the last post when I copied the link.
