Hi,
I own an MSO5074 as well. My real concern is that it is extremely slow. All the reactions and the boot and everything. It is jut not as responsive, as any other equipment i ever owned.
Is there a fix for that?

Thanks
Yes, change it for a Keysight

Exactly. Because my Keysight 3000T boots in 55 seconds...

Though after that, everything is pretty much instant. The R&S boots much faster but is much more sluggish in use

Got an offer where I couldn´t resist, delievery time 1-2 weeks.

Today the key has arrived.
You have to enter this and your serialnumber there, click to generate and you got a (very small) lic. file for download.
Putting this to usb-stick, click "option install" on the rigol and this was it (so fast, you couldn´t see the confirmation).
No need to reboot and the forever options are immediately present….
Nice one.

Your licence ist now used and cannot bei used by another person.

Would you provide us or maybe mabl or another "pro" with PM your already used licence code, serial number, lic file?
Im sure they can find interesting things with these new informations.

Many thanks to all who contributed to unlocking the goodness, especially mabl, and AngusBeef for putting together the Step-by-Step so people like me could avoid the painful Page-by-Page...   :D

One thing I've noticed, twice I have set the unit to use a static IP with junk IPs for gateway and DNS, and after a reboot the unit reverted to DHCP which put it right back connected to the internet and able to phone home.  I *THINK* I setup my DD-WRT access restrictions on my router to prevent the scope's MAC from getting to the internet regardless of its IP, but...  So the revert of the setting to DHCP might have been part of "unlocking the (slightly buggy) goodness" with applying updates and what-not, but I'm not positive.

Has anyone else seen the "revert to DHCP" behavior?

Also, is there a way to turn on SSH "permanently" without having to use the EnableSSH.GEL hack every boot?  I don't know how to hack (yet) but I want to dig around and "play".  But, I'm kinda lazy sometimes.

Let the scope use DHCP and create a static lease in your router which will be tied to the scopes NIC.  The router will always respond to the scopes NIC's DHCP request with the IP you set.  Simple enough....

I occasionally reconfigure my network, including flashing routers with various open source firmware.  I am prone to stupid mistakes and sometimes forget why I did a specific bit of configuration, so...  On my router, the scope has a static lease plus MAC and IP access restrictions.  Taking this one step further to compensate for my own absent mindedness, I have the scope setup with static IP and subnet mask the same as its static lease, but with junk IPs for gateway and DNS.

My question to the forum regarding the odd reverting of network settings that I saw 2x times was to see if it was a safely-ignorable blip, if I hit a known bug, or what.  If no one else has seen it, then there is nothing to be concerned about, which appears to be the case.  I admit I am likely overly paranoid about the "phone home" thing and it is most likely only used for doing online firmware updates or submitting crash dumps with user consent, which is a good feature when you haven't hacked your scope.   ;D

Just got this from tequipment

Quote
Effective yesterday, any purchase of a MSO5000 oscilloscope will include the BUNDLE OPTION for FREE: https://www.tequipment.net/Rigol/MSO5000-BND/Options/

Oscilloscopes purchased during the promotion period qualifies for a free bundle upgrade with registration. This option bundle enables all serial decode capabilities, power analysis, and the integrated function generator.

I wonder what this means.....

The same as by the 7000 series, buy a scope, get the optionbundle for free….Bandwith and memory upgrade excluded.

Therefore I got the optionbundle a few days before for free from rigol.eu - Although I´ve already own one, this was a thanks for my permanent feedback over the year..

Same offer in the U.S., bundle includes protocol analysis, waveform generator, and power analysis ($699) value.  You get it when you register your product, offer expires 3/31/20.  MSO5204 gets a bandwidth upgrade to 350MHz

This makes the MSO5000 a much more compelling offering in the MSO space.

BTW, DS7000, MSO7000, MSO8000 all offers free bundles, and some with free bandwidth upgrade.

Copy the official firmware to a usb key. Stick it in the scope.
While powering on the scope, keep pressing the single button.
You'll see two options show up and you should be able to flash back to the official firmware.

It means that there's people out there who aren't reading this thread (hard to believe, I know...)

Did you do a manual hack? None of my patchers should result in a broken scope. Please report a bug in that case.

If they want to give something away I wish it would have been the overpriced logic probe. You know, the thing that makes an "MSO" an "MSO". Charging 40% the base cost of the scope is ridiculous.

Here's one option. I just got mine together but I'm in the process of moving so I haven't been able to fully utilize them yet.

Oh, shit, I saw the same for-ever-boot-screen as Antlanpz, but the trick with pressing "single" with the original firmware (01.01.04.04) from Rigol on USB-stick failed? Are there any other suggestions to restore to factory default?
