I just got my HP-1 yesterday, and noticed that on the box it reads, " . . . using the Sentinel software (included)."
So, I'm wondering included where?]]>

Regarding this message; it appears and then the scanner shuts down. I pulled the batteries, no joy. The second part of the message says that to "... restore data using Sentinel All Clear. I can't do that, because I only have an iMac.
I am currently searching for an inexpensive Windows laptop that will work with the Sentinel Software and "see" the scanner when I plug it into the USB port.

My concern is that because the scanner shuts down, will the laptop actually connect to and actually 'see' the scanner?]]>

Subject: I only have an iMac - by: Trav http://homepatrol.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=110&id=17327&Itemid=38#17327 http://homepatrol.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=110&id=17327&Itemid=38#17327 I would appreciate any recommendations in regard as to what laptop and version of Windows to get that will work with Sentinel and "see" the scanner.

There are two reasons:
1. The initial setup prompt about installing Sentinel software; which I can't do on a Mac.
2. Not long after bypassing the steps of #1, and entering my zip code I got a message about an SD Card File error. Pulling the battery cells did not work, and I can't do the second step to "... restore data using Sentinel All Clear" (whatever that really is); the scanner shortly after this message appears.]]>

Subject: P25 Timing Question - by: IBSCAN http://homepatrol.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=117&id=17323&Itemid=38#17323 http://homepatrol.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=117&id=17323&Itemid=38#17323
My question is about the P25 "LNK" / it's waiting for more P25 before it clears and resumes scanning.

EX: TG pops up, P25 Audio > LNK for few sec > Either more audio or resumes scanning.

On the 436, it's missing the conversation. I forgot what I did to set the 996 to keep LNK up for a few seconds.

If it matters it's for a Digital Trunked system (San Diego RCS) but it's the scanner's settings.

I'm not a total noob, so if it's like "Under system find P25 Waiting Time" bla bla bla. But I've played with everything I think.]]>

The HP2 has an installed 4GB SD Micro card, can this card be updated to a higher capacity card, and if so, is there a limit?
3. Only been a user for 3 days, but love the unit and the Extreme upgrade, but am somewhat confused if the Serial ZIP file driver applies to the HP2? Any thoughts?
