Check the “mute level” setting. I used the Sentinel software: Menu option Edit > Edit Profile > Advanced Settings. My mute level is 1 and it mutes fine. Also make sure "Silence": is set to either Both or Reception.

For some reason the units "mute" function is no longer working. The "Mute" indicator turns color and I get the mute narrative on the screen, but the volume remains the same. The chosen mute time makes no difference.
Anyone have ay ideas?

Re: turn off CTCSS on homepatrol

bob_peloquin
 

The frequency database now has it wrong.  So how do you fix this?  Simple - find out what the correct CTCSS tone is and SUBMIT it to RadioReference for inclusion in the database.

If you want to temporarily fix it till this happens, copy that channel to a favorites list and then edit it in that list to either eliminate the code (so you can see it displayed and discover what it is now) and then SUBMIT it to RadioReference.

The whole concept of the all-encompassing database requires that people submit their information and corrections so that everyone may benefit.  Simply saying "XYZ department has changed it's CTCSS" is not enough.  You, the guy who noticed the problem, have the responsibility for doing your part to make sure it gets fixed.

Yes. I don't recall the exact nomenclature but it's OFF or a SEARCH or something like that.

Re: Home Patrol and GPS

Gord: 

I know I am replying late, and may have missed some of this in the previous replies from Dewey and Upman, but I suggest you start with the online user guide for the HP-1 on Uniden's Twiki site and/or http://marksscanners.com/HP/HP.shtml .  Specifically, read up on favorites lists and the selections for each list in Sentinel that turns on/off Monitoring, Downloading, Location selection.

You can load the HP with fav's for a road trip of just what you want to hear, and turning on the locations, your GPS will turn them on/off as you pass into the preset range of each system.  You can sort of do the same using the main database and service selections, but with less control. 

As far as the garmin GPS, be sure it does output NMEA to the cable you are using.  Most newer stand alone GPS by Garmin no longer output data.  My biggest (maybe ONLY) complaint with the Uniden "puck" GPS is that it needs a second power source.  I was hoping the new 436HP would address that, but "sigh" no such luck!

Hello group;

I am a new Home Patrol user and will be connecting a Garmin GPS unit to it while mobile.  Should I remove all my favorites from the Home Patrol and rely on the GPS to find local frequencies?  I believe I have to set up the service types I am interested in, but I don't think I need any favorites.

Is this correct, or am I way off base here.

Thanks for any and all help;
Gord




Re: Home Patrol and GPS

bob_peloquin
 

Unless a favorites list has GPS locations/ranges assigned it will only work when location-control is turned off for that list.  Copying from the full database to a custom favorites list should copy the location and range data too but unless you turn on location-control it will always try to listen to those frequencies in the favorites list.

Mistakenly turning on location-control for a favorites list you've created yourself in Sentinel without locations/ranges assigned will not work.  They've got to have locations and ranges for a list with location-control turned on to work.


Re: Home Patrol and GPS

Eric Hepner <ehepner@...>
 

You can have the HP-1 monitor only the full database, just a favorite list, or any combination. If you have it set to monitor full database, the FL is ignored. No need to delete from the unit.

You can set a FL to either pay attention to location or not.

IMHO opinion it would be a mistake to divide up the groups. And to have

Using your logic, it was a mistake to have four completely separate Yahoo groups for the BCD396T, BCD396XT, BCD996T, and BCD996XT. However, that's exactly what we have.

While there are similarities between these new BCDx36HP scanners and the HP-1 and the BCDx96XT models, there are enough differences that I think it would water down this group to include the new scanners. If you want to see what I mean, take a look at the Uniden forum on RadioReference.com. ALL Uniden models are lumped into one forum and unless the original poster identifies which scanner he or she are talking about, you could be looking at a post for BCDx36HP scanner or an old BC210.

In the poll, I voted to ask the BCDx36HP people to take their questions and comments to the Yahoo groups dedicated to those scanners. I own an HP-1 and a BCD536HP, so, yes, my decision forces me to read two groups. I'm OK with that.

Re: Home Patrol and GPS

Dewey
 

This is going to be matter of preference, but my bet is that most (myself included) don’t run favorites when using the GPS.  The only reason I feel this way is because the only time that your favorites will contain something that is not already in the main database is when you’ve manually added the information because it is not already in the RR database.  When you run the GPS with the main database, you have the best chances of coming across frequencies that you may not be aware of.  As mentioned, this will be more preference than anything else.  Since I live in the Metropolitan DC area, I use favorites to isolate the MANY different counties in Maryland and Virginia as well as DC apart from the main database.  That way, I can very easily turn on a single or multiple counties of interest without having to deal with the main database.  Wishing you very good monitoring!!!

Re: BCD436HP - newest Trunk tracker V - a new edition to the HP family

Joe M.
 

It's XT like with respect to quick keys, number keys, FTO, Close Call, and form factors. In fact, its really an XT model with the preprogrammed database, a couple new keys, and recording ability. Oh, and a much larger display which is HP like, but not a touchscreen. 

The new models also keep the same design with respect to volume/squelch, power, size, and general design. 

The new models truly are a merging of the HP1 with the XT models, and while I can see the argument that the new models are related to the HP-1, I think the argument can be made that they are more closely related to the XTs. 

As for the lists, there have been separate model lists since the BC250D - including separate lsts or the T and XT series which were much more similar than the XT vs HP. There are people who only want to discuss the HP-1, as that's what they have. There are also people who have both series and want to discuss them all. I see no issues with joining more than one list in order to keep everyone happy. What really gets me is that there was none of this debate when the XT lists were made, and most of the XT was applicable to the T series.

Thanks much Joe. I was in Orlando over last weekend and purchased a BCD436HP [HP = home patrol] The box tells me that Home Patrol is a registered trade mark of Uniden corporation. And the Uniden software is called Sentinel with an emblem, that except for the color, looks exactly like the program for the HP-1. The file structure is proprietary to Uniden and software developers have to sign a non-discloser agreement just like for the HP-1.  In other words, except for the physical form factor, the new scanners(s) are home-patrol  like in operation, not XT like.
