Since the new update, everytime I update my Homepatrol I need to renter name, time and zip code. I don't remember doing this before so was wondering if its something im doing or software?
You are transferring the default values for those items when you write to your Home Patrol since you are using a new version of Sentinel. Since it's new, it doesn't know what values you need for those items.
Either enter your settings in place of the default ones in your new version of Sentinel, or choose "read from Home Patrol" in the Sentinel menu bar after entering your values for those items into the scanner to transfer them over to the new copy of Sentinel.
