    Default XTL5000: Max conventional modes?

    Fellow techies,

    I'm confused. I was under the impression the XTL5000's could take up to 800 or 1000 conventional modes. However, when I try to add any amount over 255 in mine, it complains and asks me to enter a number between 1 and 255.

    What am I missing?

    Thanks.

    You're likely trying to add more than 255 personalities. Personalities are limited to 255; modes are higher.

    Correct.. They will do 1000 channels or modes with current firmware & CPS, but you don't need to assign a unique conventional personality to each channel.. If multiple channels share the same signaling and scan list, you can slave 1 conventional personality to multiple channels.

    Gahhhh... This is what I get for limited sleep. I just figured out as much, with a little help from the CPS tutorial. Thanks, gang...
