Yeah it always does in wales. I am sitting here too excited to open the darn thing. Bad things happen when I am excited, like being dropped or broken when ripping open packages

Noo, it would be in bits in seconds, Dave gets enough thrown at him that unless it is sex on legs he doesn't get excited now I guess.

Think I am going to get a function gen and freq gen, after I get one of those nice HP Dmm's kev's selling. Never had a decent Bench meter before, always hand held ones.  I got a fluke 175 turning soon I hope , I miss my old fluke 73/75 ( I forget which one it was now ) I had years ago

Ignore that , My fluke from Toploser just turned up too. Woohoo, now I know how Dave feels when he gets all that kit posted to him.....

Same as I was thinking. Number one caution around here is, 'can the cats knock this over or hurt themselves with it?'

My slow combustion wood burning heater now has random metal objects spread across its top surface, to make it impossible for cats to jump onto. Cats are not very bright. Don't ask.

It took over a year of spraying my stepdaughter's cats with a water bottle to convince them that my office is somewhere they don't want to go.  Even after all that, every once in awhile, one will still try it.  I keep flashing back to a bumper sticker I had years ago-I love cats, they taste just like chicken.  I put it just about my personalized Woolfie1 license plate.  Did a good job of offending people-I presume cat lovers.  I will take my dogs over a cat any day.  I do have a big enough pot for the 2 of them.

Sounds good to me, throw in some curry paste too.

I still have not turned this thing on, it is sitting there staring at me.

Nope. I am actually trying to work something out regarding the hack on it, is it worth doing it now or waiting, do I have to uninstall anything first or just enter a new key. so much info on here but some is contradictory to me and others missing bits.

Great purchase , don't read the manual too much it will confuse anybody. Find the factory reset procedure (for later on) then have a good PLAY.
I think you learn a lot more when you are playing. :-+

May as well wait.  You have 36 hours trial (or however long it is) so you may as well use it for a bit and see that it does not die from infant mortality and you have to send it back (tho, at your present rate of use, it may be some time before your trial period is up...  ;) ).  I still have 5 or 6 hours left on mine so will probably hack it at the weekend.

Have fun, Bob.

@Deathwish:
If I were you I'd turn the thing on and use it or just let it sit there, with probes connected to calibrator output or some other signal source, to let it "burn in" quickly. Who cares if you run out the "trial options" time, you can always unlock the options at any time later on. But you really should try to identify any possible hardware problems as quickly as possible so you can get prompt replacement service from your vendor or Rigol. My first delivered unit turned out to have a bad hardware problem on CH4:

and I had to return it. The problem only showed up after some time of operation. TEquipment and Rigol were great, I sent the scope back on the Monday and received the replacement via UPS second day air on the Thursday night, IIRC.

You might also see if you can get the scope to "freeze" or lock up:

A little over half of the 51 people reporting have been able to get their scopes to freeze in this manner. Rigol have been informed and hopefully they are working on a software fix, but I haven't heard anything from them since I reported the bug to them over a month ago.

The "factory reset" procedure is to repeatedly press the 5th dark grey left menu button repeatedly while the scope is booting up after power-on. It will come up with Chinese language, but you can reset to your preferred language immediately.

The most recent Software Version for the scope reports as 00.04.03.SP1 on the Utility>System>System Info screen. The "Board Version" flops around, usually mine reports 0.1.1 but just now it is saying 0.2.1 for some reason.


ETA: @ OBin:  I just noticed your Belgium flag. The latest software version adds support for French language....

No idea, havent even looked at the CD yet. I had enough trouble trying to get the ultra sigma app to work, in fact I gave up trying to issue a scpi command to it. It does work though as it sends the query for what unit is attached and replies with the model, I must of been doing it wrong, I do a lot of that.

All that is on the CD is the sigma installer I downloaded from their site so nope.

Of course I am, I plugged the probe into the mains socket, the USB lead into the light socket and applied brute force via the keyboard on screen, it is not BBC3 it is in fact Jeremy Kyle on ITV. You must forgive my overly excess of moronic diatribe and unusual humor only I can understand, I gave up smoking last night and the brain is even more confused than usual, which , is in fact, a lethal combinaion.

Get with the times. DVI is obsolete, and being withdrawn from new equipment. You need HDMI or DP, and I agree they would be good additions if the way they scan the internal LCD supports it.

Dear Rigol.
Can I please have a DVI(/equivalent) out put on my scope so I can pug in a bigger monitor .
I agree this would be a nice feature; however, my old TDS 754C has this, and you musn't underestimate the value of the screen being next to the buttons that the display is designed for. It's quite annoying looking at the menu on the big monitor and cross-referencing this with the buttons on the oscilloscope; you end up just looking at the oscilloscope screen directly and ignoring the big monitor. Even changing the horizontal scale takes some fumbling, because it's not sitting in your field of view as you view the waveform on the big monitor.

Dear Rigol.
Can I please have a DVI output on my scope so I can plug in a bigger monitor .
Thank you
Mr Myeyesarebuggered
Don't get me wrong, the Rigol 1054Z is a fine oscilloscope - I have one myself. The number of channels and once hacked the memory depth and bandwidth can't be beaten for the same price but the small screen and lack of a socket for a monitor is a disadvantage.

I also have an Owon DS7102V which cost me nearly as much as the Rigol. I got the version with a battery and a VGA socket to connect a monitor. It has a larger and higher resolution screen than the Rigol and is much lighter. Although it's only two channel and has less memory depth than the Rigol, it's my main oscilloscope because I find it easier to use and is more portable, thanks to being lighter and the battery.
