• 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:

Has anyone ever used one of these adapters with a 246T and the ARC246 software, and have it work correctly? I was thinking of trying it out, but wasn't sure if it would function properly, since it is supposed to be a serial cable connection.

I haven't used this one, but it should work OK. It already has the USB to Serial adapter built into the cable. It provides the same function as if you bought a usb/serial adapter cable and plugged the cable that came with the 246 into it.

This cable replaces the serial cable that came with the 246. The usb/serial adapters work fine with ARC 246.

Yes but you have to download a driver for the cable on the Uniden website. You have to register and then you'll have access to the downloads. Click on downloads and then register. After you have logged in click on download area. Then click on USB-1 in the download page and download then the cable will work and your computer will communicate with the scanner. I spent hours trying to get it to work and had to download the USB-1 driver before it would work. I got a lot of help from the members on here. I don't think I would have ever got it working without them.
