• 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:

I have a Uniden BC780XLT and a BC796 scanner. The software i use and had NO problems with is from a company called Butel. The website is http://www.butel.nl Once there, go to the product area and all of the software is listed for all the radios.

This is a I'm "not sure how to use...the software" question. Why was it moved from the Scanning Software Discussion and Support forum? What is that particular forum for if not support with using scanning software?

Well since you are sticking your nose into something that really doesn't concern you and at the same time spreading inaccurate statements, I guess I will respond instead of just ignoring you (or just deleting your post).

The original post was not in the Scanning Software Discussion and Support forum as you claim, it was in the General Scanning Forum. I had a choice of where to move it and felt this poster would get a better answer here in the Uniden forum than anywhere else based on what he was asking and his previous recent postings.

Once again, you have shown your ability to waste my time, I really wish you would go away for good, but I don't have the final say on that, if I did you would be history along with your alternate ID's.

Congrats on a great scanner. Uniden makes very capable software but it doesn't interface directly with the database here at RR. To program, you need to carefully retype in the systems you want to scan in your area.

My suggestion and how I got familiar with my BCD996T is to work on one system at a time and to use a similar system that is already programmed into the scanner as a guide. That really can help.

Once you have one system working, then make a few changes to see what all the options/settings do. It seems painfully slow as you read it but that worked for me.

The other option is to get the software from BuTel that BMET_Matt mentioned. One of the great features is you can interface directly with the DB here at RR. You avoid all the typing and chance of typos and the software builds the systems for you. That is a great time saver. BuTel also might open up additional features that the Uniden software doesn't. It is free to try I beleive so give it a while!
