How to get NEWS in PDN mode.
PDN is a newer feature of Wires-X. Wires-X does not support
the "NEWS" function in PDN mode, only in HRI mode. There
is a way to receive NEWS in PDN mode from rooms with a work
First you want to make note of all the +DTMF codes of the
rooms you want to get NEWS in, then close the Wires-X program.
Next you want to browse to "My Documents" or "Documents" and
look for the directory called "WIRESXA"
In this directory you will
likely only see a directory called "#99997" if you never
used NEWS before in HRI mode.
Now all you have to do is create folders and name them the
DTMF codes you noted above. Don't forget the # in the front!
And now the last thing you need to do is go in to the #99997
folder and right click and COPY "ContentsMng.dat"
Then back up one level and PASTE a copy of this file in to
each of the new folders you just made.
Once you are finished reopen the Wires-X program, enter one of
the rooms you made a folder for.
Go to the Downloaded tab, and then click Refresh. I had to
press it once, then wait a while and click it again for it to
start downloading. You may also try closing and re-opening
Wires-X to get this to start working.
Yes this is very clunky and all, but it is better then no
NEWS. If you enjoy NEWS please email Yaesu and ask them to add
support for NEWS in PDN mode!
Special thanks to H0HCV. He helped me getting this going in
PDN mode. Check out his website http://www.kansascityroom.com/
