  1. I am having an issue programming my H-777 to talk to my RCA XR150 radios. The information provided on the RCA radios have CTCSS at 67.0 and the CDCSS at 023, but the H-777 software will not accept the CDCSS at 023. Any ideas on what could cause the issue?

  2. I am attempting to update the configuration on my H777 but keep getting the “wrong password” error. I tried on Windows 10 and Windows XP, fresh system, fresh install, fully updated. Using the “Universal USB” driver and H777 Retivis programming software. I have tried 0000000 5000000 and 9999999 as well as blank passwords. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

    Thanks and kind regards,

  3. The current version is flawed in some way that causes all communication between the software and radio to fail. I uninstalled it and reinstalled the older version and was able to program my radios using my saved file. Also, why was the saved file changed to .xml instead of a .dat file? I will not be using the new software due to this issue.

    1. Hi, may I know your radio model? H777?
      We have updated the H777 software, now the new one saved file is .xml
      If you still want the old software, we will send you one by email, then you can write your file to your radio, then use the new software to get from your radio, then save it as the new file with .xml

      Let me know if you need or not! My email:

      best regards

  4. What is the 6 digit password for H777 software? It’s not allowing me to read the radio and make any changes. There is a 6 digit password requires.

  5. Hello,

  6. Hi I’m having trouble with my radio it’s a model: H777S .. everytime we plug in the headset it doesn’t work, but when we unplug it, it works

    1. hello! you can check the headset is matchable or not, and check the headset plugin fully, or change other headset and have a try. if they do not work, it should be the product problem! You can contact us through our Facebook and

  7. hello. I can get the program for the H-777 to read the device but it fails on the write to device. Fails after the handshake. please advise. Thank you!

      1. yes it did show the info. yes the programming cable is correct. it worked with my last batch of radios. I noticed that the file is now a different extention file is that the issue? Let me know as I need to get these programmed to talk to my other radios.

        Thank you!

          1. James,

            We have the same exact situation, we can read from the radios but failure on the handshake to write. I don’t know what other software you have other than the latest H-777 programming software but we could sure use it. We have frequency changes to make ASAP. Thanks.

          2. Hello!Are you radio a new version of the old version? IF the old version, I will send you software for old version!

  8. I am working to turn the alarms on for all of our radios but every time I click write to device, it claims the action has failed. Any advice?

  9. Good day.

    I can’t reprogram my H777 radio with your new software. I can read the current frequencies ,but can’t change any.I’m not sure if it’s old or new radio, but just for reference:
    Model H777
    Output power 5W
    Frequency: 400-470 Mhz

    Please help with solution.
    Thanks in advance.

  10. hi i have a problem with the new software version to program my h777 radio.
    I can read but not write on the radio it tells me failed, will it be for the new version ..?

  11. Have had my H-777 radios for 6 years. I am needing to change the frequencies on them but the new software will not allow it. Can you please provide me with the old software that allowed those changes. Thank you

  12. I can read the data out of the radio, but I can’t change the frequencies – the field just will not let me type anything in. Any ideas? Can you email me the old version of the software? Some people indicate that the old version works.

      1. Thank you – I did receive the new file you sent me, but it was the same version as on the website, 1.0.2, and it has two problems: I can’t change any of the frequencies and I can’t write to the radio, it just gives an error of “Failure”. Do you have an older version of the software you can send? Other say that the old version works better. Thank you!

  13. This software clearly does not work and I don’t understand why you keep telling people to do the same thing over and over again. Please send me the software that actually works to write to these radios, I purchased another set of 20 and need to program the old ones to match the new ones.

  14. Can you send me the older version without the password option? Can’t get past the password fail…I have older radios…3 or 4 yrs old

  15. When I try to program my H-777 I see it tries handshake, then I get a failure! message. Any suggestions?


  16. I need the old software link. The “new” software does not allow any changes and passwords only work half of the time.

  17. Hello,

    I am having the same issue. I can read from it no problem, but cannot write to it.

    Also, the Rx and Tx fields are not editable.

    Can you please send me the older version? The version I am using is 1.02 Built on 2020

    Thank you!

  18. 1) Kindly send me link to old version of software. I can only read my radio with new software. Cannot write to radio.

    2) Please explain how to get low power setting to work. Regardless of setting high or low Tx power, my H-777 radios only transmit in high power around 4 Watt.

  19. I’m having the same problem getting the “failure message”. Please send me the magic link to the software that actually works.


  20. I have an H-777 that’s apparently lost its mind….
    Channel 1 stopped working, now it just has a constant tone when the selector is set to 1. And the voice prompts when changing channels is now just a beep, its not talking any more.

    HELP !

  21. Hello James,

    Thank you for replying.
    Its the older unit, the newest software will read the radio but not allow it to be written to.


    1. I originally tried this version: 1.0.2 2020 built on 2020.
      It will read the radio but fails when trying to write data to the radio.

      You just sent me this version: 1.1 dated 5/29/2018
      When I try to read the radio, it gets to 20% then crashes the program

      Here’s the serial number of the radio if it helps: 16H7770193257

      Any ideas what going wrong ?

      Thanks !

  22. Hi, I’m having the same issue as a lot of people on here where I can’t edit anything after reading the data. The radio is years old. Could we possibly get the download for the older software please? Thank you!

  23. Hi, I seem to be having the same problem as a lot of people here who can’t edit the fields after reading the data. Could I please get the older software? Thank you!

  24. We’re having the same problems listed above. May we request a copy of the old version too to see if that solves our problems?


  25. So I just bought H777S Radio’s to ride with my boy.
    I wanted to use the VOX feature on my radio’s. I ordered a programming cable and I get handshake error’s.
    COMM port is fine and everything is working but when I try to read device I get handshake error’s..

    Can I please be sent the old version of the software?

    thank you

  26. hello, I would like the old software for my new H777. the newer software isn’t working and wont communicate with the radio.

  27. i have the program RETEVIS H-777 but when I try to change the Rx – Tx they are grayed out and will not let me change them. can you help with this?

  28. Hello, I have a fleet of a lot of H777 devices. ANd I have just bought 20 H777plus devices and it can’t communicate with the “old” H777 devices. I have bought a programming cable so can you please give me a step by step process to setup the new H777plus and make it possible to communicate with the old H777 versions? I tried to copy/paste the frequency and CTCSS/DCS but doesn’t work …. Please help, I spent a lot of money in this

      1. I’m attempting to program the older model of the Retevis H777 and each time I attempt to read or write to the device all I get is an invalid handshake. I’ve tried the above passwords nothing worked. I also tried reinstalling the drivers and software still no dice.

      2. Hi yes, every time I go to attempt to program the radio I get a failed handshake message. I’ve tried reinstalling the software, drivers, etc. I have also tried the passwords listed above. Nothing seems to work. Sorry the response took so long I didn’t realize it but I must not have hit the submit button.

  29. I’m getting a failure on the handshake as well. I have tried both the new style and old style radios with the same result. Will the old software version correct this?

  30. Bonjour
    J’ai acheté 2 lots de talkie H777 a 2 ans d’intervalle
    Sans le codage CTSSS/DCS :pas de probleme
    en programmant le meme codage sur les 2
    Plus de communication entre eux
    Merci de me dire d’ou vient le problème

    1. hi, if you have the old and new version H777, here we suggest you order the programming cable to program them, make all the settings same, then they can talk.
      Or you can offer your Order ID and Which platform you ordered? the corresponding sales will contact with you.

  31. I have reprogrammed my new H777 units to match the frequency of the old H777 units. The lights turn green to indicate it is receiving a signal, however I cannot get any audio to go through.

    I can successfully reprogram older model to older model, and newer model to newer model, but cannot get the old and new to talk succinctly, even though the software reads them on the exact same channels and setting.

    Using correct cable and software version H-777 1.1 (2018)

  32. I am getting the password error code during the handshake prompt. It seems using the old software may fix the password issue? Can I get the file?
