Hi Picojohn Thanks for that. I do have the SDK. My problem is that the command set for the two devices is different. I need to find a way to get the PS2205 to act as the ADC200 does. It will just be a question of going through the code line by line and working out what needs to be done. The applicat...

Worked out nicely!

Hi I have managed to get it all working (on my own!). The problem was that the old software was using MSCOMM to negotiate with the LPT port. As soon as I got rid of all that and used port 101 and the adc200_open_unit(port) everything burst into life :D I still would like to use my shiney new PS2205 ...

updating code from adc200 to PS2000

Is there a call similar to adc200_set_oversample? It is one of the sticking points in transfering the code from the adc200. If not, I take it I do not need to worry about oversample? If a call does not exist for the PS2000 as it did for the adc200, is it the case that those paremeters are not requir...

Capture IR data with 2205

I have a program that an ex colleage wrote for the ADC200 in VB6. This captures IR code from the scope. We now need to upgrade to USB devices and I have bought a 2205 to do the same thing. As the old software does everything I want, can the code for the ADC200 be converted to use the 2205? Am I bett...
