Re: What could be wrong?

What software version and what sample rate?
Start a trace as you are trying to work the scope and try stopping the trace after say 1 minute and then post the .psdata file here.

Re: Time trigger

Hi Liteace, Personally I am not a great fan of triggers, there are a few occasions when they can be useful, but generally they are more trouble than they are worth. My preferred method is to put the pedal to the metal in the sample rate and set a long time base. Make the capture and then just zoom i...
