It looks like you have your settings incorrect. This was the message:
                 
829 829 829 000
04631 00001 00000 34657

Set it to MFSK-20 10Bd

Yep Bd was the key. K500 allows for direct Bd entry, WCODE doesn't, have to set the character duration to 100ms, then it got the correct decode. Centurion doesn't seem to have a means to set Bd. Sorry for the excitement, first time bothering with xpa.

Josh, the best and easiest decoder for XPA, XPA2, F01 and F06 is Rivet

I have rivet, but clicked that link to see if there was a newer version than build 90, and it's taking me to a page that basically is saying that it's no longer valid.

MDK2 its also showing the same thing on my web browser as well. I'll look more into it and see if I can find an updated version and let you know.
