  1. Whoa! That is good info. Didn't pick up on that one. So much to learn . . . so little time . . . :-)
  2. Nevermind. I have it now. The "Welcome" bar lets you add an instrument. Gosh, this stuff is sure not intuitive at all!! The process for figuring something like that out seems to be to first search for a clue on how to do it with the AD, which has been around longer, and then it is often possible to find a clue from the AD discussion as to how to do it on the AD2.
  3. I would like to be able to run both the scope and the wave generator for the AD2 at the same time, and toggle back and forth between them in real time. But cannot figure out a way to do that. Two copies of Waveforms 2015 cannot run simultaneously apparently, and no way that I can see to switch back and forth between the scope and the wave generator using just one copy. Any way to accomplish this??? (When I say that two copies of Waveforms 2015 cannot run simultaneously, I mean that both copies cannot be accessing the AD2 at the same time.)
  4. This is not a question. Merely a comment, that there is what appears to be an excellent tutorial (by brmarcum) on using the waveform generator on the Analog Discovery 2 with Waveforms 2015. The link is http://www.instructables.com/id/Waveform-Generator-With-the-Analog-Discovery-2/ John
  5. I was having the same problem, and an externally powered USB hub solved it. The Analog Discovery 2 works on all three of my systems now (Mac, Windows 10,and Linux (Fedora).
  6. Hello to everyone. I'm a newbie, both for this forum and also with Diligent equipment. Just bought an analog discovery 2 and am in the process of getting acquainted with it. It is not intuitive. I'm a hobbyist -- not an engineer -- and probably the least knowledgeable person on here. So I may ask a lot of questions. Hopefully they are good ones, though.
  7. And by the way, just to go to a tad further than the excellent explanation above by donwade1234, when he says "C1" or "C2" he is referring to Scope Channel 1 and Scope Channel 2. That is, to measure the voltage across a 9-volt battery, for example, Scope Channel 1 Positive lead would be connected to the positive terminal of the battery, Scope Channel 2 Negative led would be connected to the negative terminal of the battery, and then go to LOGGER to see the voltage, as he states.
  8. Thanks for that info. And by the way, I had no intention of giving myself that name. I messed up in the registration process, I guess. If you, as a moderator, can change it to jwnall that would be appreciated. :-)
  9. OK, I think that we are in sync now. Thanks for staying in there with me. The thing which was throwing me was that the reference manual turns out to have more than one section 1.2 and more than one section 4.2. :-) Once I solved that particular little problem, all is OK. I think.
  10. Or at least I thought it was, anyway. Section 1.1 does not show that. I think that perhaps there might be a newer version of the reference manual, but not sure how to find it. And there is no section 4.2. What is really strange is that I thought that I found an updated version of the reference manual which does have what you said, but cannot find it again!!
  11. Thanks for that. I had just about decided, through a process of elimination, that "logger" must be it, but had not yet tried it. Interestingly enough, the reference manual for Waveforms 2015 calls it "meters" rather than logger. Oh well.
  12. I'm trying to figure out how to use a horizontal position control on the Discovery 2, but so far not having any luck. Drat! Anyone know how to accomplish that?
  13. Welcome, WebbyNY. I just got my new one the other day, and am still trying to master it. Wish there were a good tutorial for newbies . . .
  14. I don't see any way to access the voltmeter tool on the analog discovery 2 with Waveforms 2015. How do you do that??
