Hughesnet is definitely the problem. "The operation has timed out" part of the error is pretty conclusive. They have been a constant problem with FTP transfers (which Sentinel uses for updates) due to the excessive latency in their transfers.They were working before when I had dishnet. I changed to hughesnet plus, I just got done cleaning things out of my downloads and my documents folders. I think I deleted something from my documents folder that may have messed things up. I re-installed Sentinel but, I keep getting the timed out error.
You just need to take the SD card with your laptop. Either use the card reader in the laptop if it has one, or use an external card reader connected to the laptop. When you get home, just put the card back in the scanner and when the scanner boots up, the firmware will be applied.Well, I guess I can use Proscan to import from RR the frequencies etc. and if a firmware update is sent out I can then take my laptop to a place with public wi-fi. would I need to take the scanner also for firmware upgrade?
