I figured it out.   from: |O   to: :-+

There were 2 issues:
First off - running the python code remotely in that link's website didnt work for me.  I copied the code and ran it in this on-line python execution website: https://www.programiz.com/python-programming/online-compiler/
it then returned the correct keys.

Secondly, the correct command in SCPI is: MCBD key........ not MCBD 200MHzkey
I thought the 200MHz had to be there as a prefix to the key... but that's not the case.  I see what the OP meant... ie "use the 200MHz key" in that place, but the way it's written, i mistook it as needing that "200MHz" prefix.

cheers!

hello all,

I used the above python script and successfully generated the codes for the Teledyne LeCroy T3DSO1104 (which is the same HW as the Siglent).

The AWG, WIFI and MSO upgrades I can check in the GUI itself. But for the 200MHz upgrade - beside of the "success" return from the SCPI MCBD command, how can I tell if it worked? Beside doing measurements, of course.

thanks a lot, Roger

The only "beside" is entering the equipment and see the BW license file to check its contents.

On the Siglent, you can check the model-number in the "information" page - you will notice the 1204 model - depicting the 200mhz version vs the 100mhz which is model 1104.
This will validate that the unit "thinks" it's a 200mhz unit.

Secondly, if you turn the "horizontal" knob, you will be able to get 1 or 2 more settings, down to 1ns per division, whereas the 100mhz unit only goes to 5ns I believe.

Lastly, as far as actual performance, there may be different low-pass filters setpoints for 100mhz versus 200mhz - someone that may have done some actual tests can confirm this.

From a sampling rate, quality of data etc - there is no difference - the same data is presented to the processor, from the A-D.  1GS/s shared per 2 channels (2 A-D's for the 4 channels).  So no more "data" is available... so it only comes down to how the data is used / processed etc. 

Best way to think about it is this way:  this is a native 200mhz device, that was "throttled down" to 100mhz to fit a market-space... rather than a 100mhz device that is "stretched" to 200mhz

i have the sds 1104x-e in pro mode,the screen says sds1204x-e and the horizon scale is now 1.00ns.
now i will disable the pro mode,to get the keys from the memorydump.bin file.
how dissable the pro mode?

Hi, wonder if anyone experienced the same.. I ran the python web interface to generate the 200M bandwidth key for my Siglent 1104x-e scope.
The python app generated 4 possible codes which i tried but none of them worked. I know this as each time i ran a key, I queried it by MBCD? and then my existing key was returned.
Any help would be appreciated. ^-^

When you are able to generate your current license, then you can be sure you are using the keygen correctly.

check here:
https://www.eevblog.com/forum/testgear/unlocking-siglent-sds1104x-e-step-by-step/200/

you have to enter bandwith update by MCBD command, all other updates directly on the scope. first select the option you want to update and then enter the code.

I also had multiple problems people are reporting, and after reading a lot I found the solution. I had to downgrade first. :) Latest version doesn't supports telnet enabling nor some scpi commands.
