We send passthru commands to a HP8350b sweep oscillator, via a
HP8757c, using direct i/o. It works fine.
In instrument manager I have something like:
...where 716 is the analyzer's regular address and 717 is the passthru
address. Note that I've used two different instrument names to make
things less confusing.
Simply program the analyzer using the former object, and the source
using the latter.
Hope this helps,

Is it possible to program the source for an HP8757D scalar analyzer
using Direct IO?
Do you have to set up a scalar analyzer object in the Instrument
manager at the passthru address and send the pass thru commands to
HP8757(@716) for regular commands
HP8757(@717) for pass thru commands
Or can you only do pass thru commands via the panel driver or
