  1. It is indeed unfortunate that documentation is lacking. Even something that is not "nicely put together" or "single page" would be helpful. I able to send JSON commands and receive the responses, but I am having big trouble with the "osc":"read" command. I have a program that can output waveforms of various frequencies through the computer's audio system and have it making a 1000 Hz sine wave that is ±1 volt peak-to-peak; since I am new to OpenScope I don't want to rely on being able to make the AWG do its thing just yet. The OpenScope MZ is connected to this, and I verified the connec
  2. Pardon my rant. I did some digging and found out on another post that you can send and receive the JSON code over the serial port at a baud rate of 1250000. The posting did not say what the other parameters were, but I quickly found out that they are 8 bits with 1 stop bit and no parity. I am able to do so from my C++ code easily. However, the fact that I had to spend a lot of time digging in the Forum to find this out underscores my opinion that the documentation for this device could be better. This is important information, and it should be easy to find. There also needs to be
  3. I am an experienced avid-hobbyist/semi-pro at both electronics and computer programming. I program under Windows using MS Visual C++, and I have for many years worked with devices for analog data acquisition. I have written some pretty sophisticated programs for doing so. I recently discovered the OpenScope MZ and thought "open-source oscilloscope, sounds like fun," and so I bought one. Being who I am, I want to write my own code to use this thing, and I want to be able to explore its possibilities. I want to do that under Windows using C++. I would like to do my own user interface a
  4. I had connected to the wrong wire, the yellow/white one. Thanks JShort
  5. I don't think so. I couldn't get anything out of it. How do I enable it?
  6. Hello JColvin, Success! Thank you. I can't seem to get anything but low-level white noise from the AWG, but the oscilloscope works I can see waveforms form other sources. Thank you for your rapid responses. JShort
  7. Hello JColvin, I tried Edge, and it worked. My internet connection is slow, so I am using the "localhost" edition. I don't know if I will experience occasional crashes with that, but I got it working for now. I could not do the firmware update. WaveForms Live complained that it could not download the latest version because of my firewall. I have the McAfee security software; what settings do I need to change to allow this? Alternatively, it was suggested that I could use a "local hex file." I saw where I could download the firmware in hex format. How do I use it to upgrade
  8. With the OpenScope MZ connected, when I start WaveForms Live, "localhost" edition, It shows the WaveForms Live logo and then goes to a black screen with "ADD A DEVICE" in the top center, an apparent menu button in the upper left, and two buttons in the lower left, "GETTING STARTED" and "TUTORIAL." Clicking any of these buttons has no effect. WaveForms Live appears to be waiting for a signal from the OpenScope MZ that never arrives. If I try the WaveForms website version, it shows the logo for a few seconds and then goes to a blank white screen. It appears to be waiting for something, t
