Re: Gold Elite / MCC Emer Alarm audio

Just FYI, the emergency receive cadence OP is looking for is not part of the 15 default alert tones. I believe it's generated from the VPM, so it'd have to be a recording off the speaker jack or similar. If no one has it I'll see about getting one recorded from our system and post a link to it, if ...

Re: Gold Elite / MCC Emer Alarm audio

Here are all 15 default alert tones for the MCC 7500. The d/l link is good for 7 days. (Zipped folder - 15 wav files) https://we.tl/4cciBzJUlM Drat! I missed the link before it expired. I these are the files located in the user\Motorola\MCC7500 folder, I have them. I didn't think the emergency alar...

I don't suppose anyone has a good quality audio recording of the emergency alarm?

Re: MCC7500 'turtle' jacks dying, revived by reconnecting headset

So, 7.17.17 didn't resolve the issue... Log pulling and rechecking the basics shall continue.

There's apparently a tech bulletin on this issue but it was supposed to have been resolved by 7.17.

Re: MCC7500 'turtle' jacks dying, revived by reconnecting headset

Dispatchers would see that their selected resource was active but they couldn't hear the field unit. I like the idea of a hardware VU, though. So we upgraded half the consoles to 7.17.17 per SSC and it seems to have resolved a lot of issues, including the vanishing audio. The emer alarm is ear split...

MCC7500 'turtle' jacks dying, revived by reconnecting headset

Anyone else experiencing this? Recently turn-key installed ASTRO 7.16 system with MCC7500 consoles. Dual jacks. One side has DB15 extension cable. Dispatchers say they'll lose all audio, or sometimes just ear or just mic, and be unable to communicate with units. Unplugging and reconnecting the Plant...

Re: APX Bluetooth w/ Cellular Headsets

The PLT Edge headset is configurable via an app. Turning on Streaming ability in the headset allowed it to connect to the APX.

APX Bluetooth w/ Cellular Headsets

Is there a way to determine which consumer devices the radio will pair to? I've been able to pair it with a Plantronics PLT E500 (works great!) but a newer more advanced model PLT Edge won't work.

Re: Windows 10 & ASTRO 25 CPS

Another follow up...

XTS2500 works on my own laptop. The X close button in the top right of any child window inside CPS is missing, but the "Close" button in the bottom left is there.

I was NOT able to read/write an XTS5000. I got the same error that started the thread.

Re: Windows 10 & ASTRO 25 CPS

Some of my users are now saying they are able to run ASTRO 25 CPS in Windows 10 Pro (64-bit) without any changes, CPS updates or otherwise any effort at all - it simply started working. I'm assuming a Windows 10 background mystery update resolved it.

Re: Windows 10 & ASTRO 25 CPS

Thank you again to everyone who responded. A Win7 VM was ultimately what worked for me and it worked really well. I used Oracle VirtualBox and it worked the first time. If any of you are also running Aviat Eclipse gear, the VM works for their Provision software too. Aviat Portal runs fine on Windows...

Re: Windows 10 & ASTRO 25 CPS

Thanks for the response. It was previously installed on Win7 Pro x64. The OS was upgraded using the in-place installer downloaded from MS. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the CPS, no luck. The installer did complain about there not being a supported version of .NET on the PC, which seemed odd....

Windows 10 & ASTRO 25 CPS

Anyone tried it?

Our first laptop upgraded to Windows 10 from 7 isn't able to open a port with any ASTRO 25 radios via USB cable.

Open Radio Failed
Error Context: 24, Status: c0000344

I'm hoping there's a fix, but I'd also accept my being the only one having this issue.

Re: CDM1250 Firmware Upgrade

Jack is right, the rear connector is significantly more reliable.

If you have remote kits on the CDMs then just forget the mic jack even exists and ALWAYS program AND flash via the rear connector on the radio itself.

Re: CDM 1250 won't power on

Is this a remote head? If so, I recommend never programming them through the control head since that is how I ended up with dead CDM's years ago. I bought the rear connector programming cable and never again had a failed unit. Regardless of the above, I also saw lots of control head and remote adapt...

Re: Zetron 4010 question

I'm pretty sure that, as of last year anyway, the 4010 is still in production. Call Zetron sales and provide them the serial number. They should be able to tell if it's really a 4010, which is a standalone console, or if it's the button/LED position (4011?) for the Series 4000 which uses backroom eq...
