Is it possible to downgrade the firmware? I would rather go back a revision and get the radio id's back.
Since I updated my 800 with the 7-25-12 cpu update I have had nothing but troble with my radio! First it will not pic up P 25 after about 30 minutes. If you turn it off turn it back on you will get another 30 minutes. no radio id some times it will show on P 25's when its picking them up. also I use the led so I can look over from accross the room and see who is talking and now as it scans it continues to flash the last color I have set for the last channel it was stopped on. As soon as it pics up another TG that has another color set it continues to flash that color as it scans. I have tried factory reset and a complete start over and it is still going on.So basicly the last CPU update made it completely useless. unless you want to baby sit it to turn it off and on.
Use the print screen, then go to Windows PAINT. Paste the image into (EDIT>PASTE) and then you can print it. Be sure to adjust the paper size so to accomondate the entire screen at one time.
After speaking with reps from GRE America, downgrading the firmware on the PSR-800 is not possible; I'll have to send the unit in.
strange. in the recent firmware update it states right in gre's pdf instructions how to downgrade the firmware. did it myself more than once.
You can only downgrade to the last public firmware release, removing the public beta firmware. Upgrading to the last public firmware release caused my issues (I think) and there is no way to downgrade to previous releases.
My PSR-800 is struggling to decode a P25 conventional signal right now, but the PRO-106 (PSR-500) right next to it is working just fine (VHF P25 at -70dBm).
Make sure you downgrade both the CPU and DSP firmware or it will have problems... At least that's what I've seen here.
It isn't ... it just provides the Phase 2 capability.
If you don't have Phase 2, you don't need it. On the other hand, you should always keep your software/firmware current.... but that is your choice.
I noticed a new setting that wasn't documented in the changelog. It is near the bottom of the settings menu and says "Trim Logs". I can imagine that it would cut out unnecessary data from the P25 logfiles. Does anyone know about this undocumented feature?
