I keep reading all the posts here, and was recently reading about recording Waveforms and deriving MAF using math channel. They talked about making sure you were giving enough resolution to the waveform to ensure the math would come out right. I'm currently using the 4423 Automotive scope and still learning the ins and outs of the software.
I'm looking for suggestions as to how best to set up scope sample rate. Would you always be trying to maximize the sample rate? The whole screens things is confusing me. I'm not use to having to think like this. I'm use to putting the best image I can get up on the screen period. I see there is a give and take between sample rate and how many screens you will end up with in the sample. From what I understand you can't just continually sample to memory in the PC, or dump to hard drive. I get this. So what I guess I'm asking is, does anyone have a rule of thumb as to how best to set the scope with sample rate in mind? Are there pitfalls I should be looking out for?
