We are aware of this issue and are currently testing a release of software that fixes it. This will be released to the webiste once testing has been completed.

In the mean time you may wish to try using "Resolution Enhancement" from the same channel drop down menu to clean up the signals rather than using the low pass filtering.

Stefan,

I am assuming you are applying the low pass filter live with the scope running? Have not seen this issue and was not able to duplicate it here but I see the Pico team is on it as usual. :D

We do not normally use the filter live at all but rather apply the filter to the capture after the fact. This way you do not compromise your sample rates and can dial in just the desired amount to clean up the capture. This may work better for you.

Hi,

Yes, your assumption is correct.... only time i've done it is live....
What you're suggesting is probably a better workflow, so i'll try that instead :)

Thank you! /Stefan

Stefan,

Please let me know how that works out for you. Many do not realize that you can apply low pass filtering to a saved capture. This is a very powerful feature and has only recently become relatively stable. You may encounter some issues doing this with very large 'power user' captures. These often crash the application. Change the filtering level slowly or maybe type in the desired level so as not to have to chick over and over to get there. This tends to reduce the likelihood of a crash.

Sorry, but i totally forgot about this one..... !!

Anyway, your advice works perfect.... no hangs or any other problem when using the filter on the capture!
Thanks again! :)
