Video decoding

Post by Moonwalker » Thu Mar 13, 2014 11:37 am

Is it possible to decode video signals with Picoscope? I saw some custom software that works using Picoscope but it would be nice to have something similar integrated in Picoscope sw.
Same feature may apply to audio too.

Hi Moonwalker,

Are you able to provide some information on your application?

Have you referred to this post?

Yes saw that. But it would be nice to have a small window in picoscope itself so while checking the waveforms it displays the video picture. This makes it easy to know if the signal being checked is good or not.

I dont have a specific application but I repair satellite decoders and some would have problems with the video output. If picoscope could show the decoded picture of the video signal, it would help me better to find the faulty components.

Same may apply to audio. Some decoders send unfiltered PWM audio direct to the scart and this makes it difficult to diagnose. Hearing the audio sound while checking the waveforms may help a bit.

This is just a suggestion ofcourse.

Thanks for your reply.

I've added the information to a new feature request that the Development Team can consider.
