Possible issue with 124 firmware. I’m not sure if this is me or something I am doing or the firmware itself?

When I installed the new firmware I did a factory reset, the factory reset confirmed new firmware.

Now should this have deleted all the mute memory I had? I only had two K bands that were mute memorized that I know were speed signs. At certain frequencies, now I’m driving along and a new frequency pops up as mute memory. I delete it then two minutes later another mute memory shows up, then another and another. Total four mute memories on a daily commute of 20 minutes.

Now I know 100% that the mute memories showing up were not any of the frequencies I memorized in. I only did so to two different speed signs on my daily commute and that’s it!

Thoughts?
Updating the firmware followed by a factory reset should not delete mute memory locations or user marks.

So you’re saying that “mute memories” are popping up at locations that you didn’t actually mute memory (lockout)? If that’s the case, this would be the first time I’ve read about it here. I would “delete mute memory” from the menu and start fresh. If you’re still having the issue after that, I would flash the firmware again with the “recovery mode” box checked followed by another factory reset before readjusting your settings.

Definitely odd. Maybe it’s just me. I did another factory reset followed by the delete mute memory. I’ll see how it does on tomorrow’s drive.

Has Uniden pulled the 124 firmware? I don't see it in downloads.

In the settings: Auto mute K and X only. (no Ka!)
My Ka alert actually was auto muted! After the initial alert with the voice, I could barely hear the Ka Alert tone.
Please fix it.
Thank you.

It doesn’t need to be “fixed,” as auto mute by design lowers or mutes the alert volume depending on what your auto mute setting is set to. Suggesting an additional option to auto mute K and X only would be a better way to put it.

Hi, I can probably help with that.

Could you please send me a person message with your details of your upload tool version, your R7 serial number etc. and I'll see if I can help get the installation going. It's getting late here now in New Zealand so probably would have to be tomorrow. Okay. :)

We ever get an answer whether auto lockouts are coming this month?
Or any month?

@UnidenSupport,

Could you please tell me if the reporting range on K band is a "hard out" at 24.250 while running K wide?

I received a 24.251 alert the other day and I have been trying to recreate it at the spot it happened (very close to my home) with no luck, so I'm assuming it was the gasoline tanker I was next to.

I know that's right on the very edge of legit k band, but there was that earlier report of a 25.200 alert, and I was curious as to whether or not I should bring this to your attention as a possible bug. Tried to get visual proof but have been unsuccessful thusfar.

I got it to alert to 24.251 on the bench and hold it. Anything above and it would go silent. I did get it to show 24.252 very briefly, but wouldn't hold it. Don't know if that was due to the detector, or the antenna just drifted up a bit.

Mute memory for MRCD false alert locations needs to be added.

Did you ever get the issue figured out? My laptop isn't letting me download the driver - it's saying "the Device Driver Installation Wizard was unable to find any drivers designed for your machine" - yet it's a standard 64 running Win10.

If you got anywhere on your side, it would be helpful to know.

Thanks.
