I just got the HP-1 and since I am a long time Freescan user for my other radios, I also downloaded PP.
I understand from reading the forums (& RR) that I need to update the HP-1 DB using Sentinel. I then read the HP-1 into PP and save it to disk as a backup.
I find creating and updating favorite lists much easier in PP than Sentinel, and I also save them to disk as well as to the HP-1.
The first time I loaded from Sentinel to HP-1 and then hp_1 to PP I got that same error message on the favorites, although it did load all the lists correctly. While still hooked up to the computer, I went to the HP-1 card and deleted everything from the favorites folder then downloaded favorites only back to hp-1. I have not had a loading error from the hp-1 since.
How do you want me to report bugs or suggestions for improvements/features while I am playing with PP ?
Keep up the good work. I love your programs.
