Re: USB to Serial converter
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Thank you all for replies to my earlier posting. Had to install Tera Grand USB 2.0 to RS232 serial converter(uses FTDI chipset) on laptop operating Windows 7. Device was installed and shows as operating COM3. I think I downloaded BC_VUP v188.8.131.52 and BC796D V3 60 correctly into my C drive and unzipped them. However, I cannot install onto the Scanner. The desktop icon opens the BC VUP program, but when I select downloading the BC796, selecting port 3 and initiating installation, I get a communications error message, I follow the Uniden instructions on triple pressing the buttons when turning on the radio, and get a clear screen, but cannot seem to download the firmware updates to the radio. What am I missing?

Subject: [BC796D] USB to Serial converter
Having just acquired a 796D, having little experience in trunk programming, I need to install Uniden firmware and rebanding, and connect programming software. I have a Windows 7 64 bit laptop, USB connector only. I know there has been some earlier discussion on recommended converters. What is the prevailing thought as to currently available converter cables, chip and driver. Thank you.
