pico 5204 not recognized using Silex SX-DS-4000U2 extender

Postby hans-hbn » Tue Jun 23, 2015 7:13 am

Hello All,

I try to use my PICO 5204 scope attached to a Silex SX-DS-4000U2 extender over my local network.
The extender is wired to the router via a switch, the laptop I am using is connected via WIFI.
Using windows vista at the laptop.

Using the SX virtual link program I see the PICO 5204 shown up attached (icon: camera) but after I make the connection using SX virtual link, the picoscope software (version 6) does not recognize a connected device.

Any hints how to solve this?

You may have to reconnect the scope in the extender's control panel window.
This should only happen first time the scope is connected with the PicoScope software. (We have tested a similar device)
(PicoScope software disconnects the scope to load the scope's firmware)

Have you tried connecting your pc directly to the extender via Ethernet?
