Do you get any error message when you try to update?

What is the date in the lower left-hand corner of the Sentinel window on your computer?

Also..... What is the date of the database in the Home Patrol itself?

From the main screen, select Menu --> Advanced Menu --> scroll down arrow --> Version Information.

What date does it say for the database version there?

As of today, they should both read 8/04/2013

Also.... Be sure you have the latest version of Sentinel running on your computer. From the top toolbar, click "Help", then "About". The current version is 2.02 (revision 04).

Get the latest version here if you don't have it yet, (the link in the first paragraph):

info.uniden.com/HomePatrol/ExtremeUpdate

Install that, then be sure to update the firmware first if it needs it (current firmware version is 2.04), then update the database. Be sure to "Write" to the Home Patrol after that to get the updated database into it.

FIRST...... Be SURE you have the latest Sentinel Software on your computer - Version 2.02 (revision 04).... follow the link in my post above.

Once you have the newest Sentinel version installed and running on your computer, connect the Home Patrol to your computer, and from the top tool bar click "update", then "update firmware".

When that's done........ update the database and "write" it to the scanner.

You need to update Sentinel itself.
Some friends and family are like a slinky, they don't serve much of a purpose, but they sure are fun to watch when you push them down the stairs.
