Second problem solved. It must have been a bad firmware flash. I reflashed it and all appears well now.

If you start PPS, does it see the device? The radio should show "PC Connected" when you start PPS.

Seems to display the shield for both programmed talkgroups as well as in wildcard/monitor mode. Hopefully, this is a precursor to a future mute (or skip) solution.

DO NOT use the portable dealer Uni Maintain Tool. It Shouldn't have even been in the release folder. I must have overlooked it. That utility requires different drivers and the unit to be in an engineering mode for it to work correctly.

That's what I am trying to get implemented.

FYI, the reason I recommended this is because the firmware updater doesn't provide the same level of info. PPS will show you if the device is recognized no matter what. The firmware update can seem to indicate it doesn't detect the device for various other reasons it seems.

To determine whether the unit is connected you can check the device manager under network adapters. It should show Unication USB Ethernet/RNDIS #X. Also you can Ping the IP using the command prompt the IP is 10.10.0.12.

I have pps installed but do not have my pager yet. What is the correct order to plug everything in so the PC recognizes the pager and installs the driver. Or are there drivers somewhere I have to install?

It's documented in the zip that comes with the firmware.

I haven't seen it mentioned for this new firmware release yet.
Do we still have to change all the knob function settings to tone from silent, or we get the dreaded
speaker X again.

The driver installs at the beginning of the PPS installation so always install the PPS before connecting unit.

I'm using Windows 10 and I did nothing special beyond installing the PPS and running the firmware updater. Best I can tell, the only sequence required is to ensure the radio is connected via the USB cable and powered on before pressing the Download button on the updater tool. If the updater can't find the radio, it will tell you.

We created a cmd script to check connectivity if anyone would like it as long as you get a reply the unit should be connected.

One thing to possibly do as well is once the new firmware is installed, open the pps and make sure your codeplug is ok and resend it to the pager, don’t think it’s necessary but I did have one profile get borked
