Screen Capture from 8753A VNA

Is there any way to capture the VNA screen graphics using HPIB and display it on a PC monitor? I read a previous post along these lines which mentions doing it all remotely, and another suggesting using HPGL. Can someone please elaborate on these?

I have an old 8753A with option 010 in semi-retirement because it has a failing tube, and I would prefer to circumvent the problem completely with software rather than attempting a tube rejuvenation as described in another posting. I would retire it altogether except for the fact that my 8753ES does not have the time domain option.

I use my own capture software (written in Turbo Pascal - similar to C) in conjunction with an 82335 card. Works fast and is bug-free. It can also run in a DOS window under Win2K if necessary.

Thanks in advance
