See the end of this very long thread:i Have been away a while can someone give me the short story on the changeover that has occurred. I no longer receive any QA's broadcast be they police/fire/state. I have a home patrol 2. What do I need to receive them? Thanks!
In theory, yes.TWill the homepatrol2 get these?
Easiest way:If so how do I make that happen?
Can't say for certain that the HP Sentinel database is the same as the x36 Sentinel database, however, I can confirm that the talkgroups are in the database I pulled for the x36 this week. They are in a "department" called Queen Anne's County in the system called "First Responders..." under Statewide (not County) systems.I downloaded the latest updates on Monday and don't seem to be able to pick up QA. I do get state ploice centreville.
You said you have a Home Patrol 2 -- x36 means either a BCD436HP or BCD536HP. I believe the Home Patrol modes have a separate version of Sentinel from the BCDx36HP models but they should use the same RRDB data so given the new QA talkgroups are in the BCDx36HP database as of 10/23/16, I'd expect them to also be in the Home Patrol database as well but I can't say all of this with 100% certainty. What database version (date) is being displayed on the lower left corner of your Sentinel software? Mine says 10/23/16...Thanks for the reply. I'm not much good with this beyond punching in a zip code. What is the x36 Sentinel database? Would it be better to download it?
Ah ---- I don't think that is going to work either...... and here's why I think that...I don't have a favorites list. I will re enter the zip code
