Just triggered. It took a while.
I'm doing the same (at least I think it is the same) with a PM3382
combiscope from Philips. I didn't have much problem with it.
The direct I/O box looks like this:
- WRITE TEXT "HCOPY:DATA?" EOL ;query to scope
- READ BIN dummy BYTE ARRAY:2 ;two byte header thrown away
- READ TEXT output STR ;the actual output
- EXECUTE CLEAR
- EXECUTE LOCAL
while the Direct I/O configuration looks like:
READ TERMINATOR "
EOL SEQUENCE "
Is this of any help?
With kind regards,
