I have 2 questions about the sentinel software:

1-In favorites list editor to the right of "sites" is "unit id's" what is that for and what does it do?
2-When creating a new Favorite group it asks for the system type what is difference between P25 Trunk and P25X2 TDMA ? and if I am programming a system that is listed as a "P25 Phase ll" system in Radio Ref which system type would I use?

1 The Unit ID is so you can convert the numerical display to an Alpha tag for identification, example 7001234 is the ID you add Engine-51 and the radio will display Engine-51 when its active.
2 Select P25 Trunk

I believe the P25X2 TDMA was a Motorola system that is obsolete IIRC.

Guys a little more help please:
I programmed all my P25 systems into sentinel favorite groups with no problems all working great.
However i tried to make favorites of 2 Conventional analog setups, I programmed all the frequencies, ctcss, etc and saved them into favorites
but when I select either favorite group it comes up "nothing to scan" what am I doing wrong?
