I can't get the SCPI command (:SYSTem:LKEY:TDELete) to work on my DSA875 either.

Edit: The command ':SYSTem:LKEY:TDELete' just hangs and times out.  I don't think that the command is valid for the DSA832, or 875.  As all the standard commands respond very quickly.

   Done. . .   Ted

Just to be sure how should I append the License code in case I'm missing something, although I don't think so.

Are you doing a SEND or SEND/RECEIVE.   Try just sending the Command and see if the screen says Accepted or similar on the DSA

Thanks to who posted about changing the bmp file prefix. Seems to be gone now.
Changing the BM6 to BM65 makes the colors match the analyzer.

The bmp file from the Rigol comes with a 11 character prefix before the BM6, that needs to be stripped off or the file will not open in a viewer.

I added code to save as a png file.


Rev C below works on both RSA5065 and DSA815

Hello IRB:
It seems that your Screenshot program is intended for the Rigol RSA3/5000 Series, as I can't get it to work for the DSA815.  And from your screenshots I see that you are using a RSA5065TG there.  I suggest considering moving this to a RSA3/5000 Thread, as it may me more meaningful for those users, if it isn't intended for the DSA800 Series.  Nice work, and I'm sure that RSA user's will very much appreciate your new application for their SA.   Apparently a little fine tuning may be required for the display screenshot's Graticule.  Thank you for providing third party software for our equipment, as it is always nice to have alternatives from expert users such as you.

ted572  :-+

Thank you for pointing out there is a bug in my code.
You are correct, I had modified the code to work on the RSA5065, I failed to re-test the code on the RSA815.
I have tried the code on both. See pictures.

The file from the DSA is smaller but it has a little hang for the last few bits, the RSA file is a little lager but both are working as far as I can see.

Please let me know if there are other issues.

Hello IRB:
The RSA5000 Screenshot looks good,  although the Graticule in the DSA800 still needs a touch up.  Great, I'm happy that you essentially have it working for both SAs.     Thank you

Edit:  What is going on?  Now all I see is the RSA5000, anyway apprarently you are still working on it.

Minutes later: Now the DSA800 Screenshot is back with the Gaticule issue. ? ? ?   It's in good hands (I hope).  I'm sure will will get working!

The Graticule skips are in the PRINT Screen image capture.
In the save file it is fine.

Thanks again for testing the progress.

Same zip file as above post.

I've been away from this topc for some time but didn't realise for just how long until I caught up on all the interestimg firmware changes, my 815TG is still at 1.13:-)

I already had 1.14 and 1.15, and have now downloaded 1.18 and 1.19, but can't find 1.16 and 1.17.

If someone could supply copies of those it would be much appreciated.

Nigel, GM8PZR

The signed capture mode on version 1.19 behaves strangely, it always on MaxHold mode , even in real-time mode. Does it work correctly on 1.18? If so, can I downgrade from 1.19 to 1.18?
Anyone has similar problem?

Help. I got 3 old out of date trials on dsa832. Do any one know how I can purge em?  Stein

In the last firmware 00.01.19.00.02 for the DSA815, there is a new SCPI command with help text.


"Delete all Trial version option license key"

:SYSTem:LKEY:TDELete


The corresponding button is also available in the Maintenance Mode.

Peter

Careful with this command. It will wipe out all of the trial keys at once.  :scared:

Even when given a parameter for a specific key.

Anyone know how to recover or reapply trial keys?  :-//

I've tried through telnet and the menu, both give me "invalid key".

I even tried rolling back the date, that didn't work.

Current firmware is 1.19, the keys were issued for 1.18 so it's the new format. (no dashes).

Maybe I should try to roll back to 1.18 and try again??

The Signed Capture Mode works correctly with version 01.18. I also think that version 01.19 works wrong. With version 01.19 the LAN connection works much better.

You can press the "Preset" button directly when turning on the device to install older firmware.

All,

Regarding the DSA815, Rigol updated  it's licensing scheme a few years ago and many of you have implemented other ways to get to the SSC license.

But, AMOF, many of you still have the scope working with the old "riglol" licensing format. Most don't know this!

So, for those who still don't have that license or that are not sure if their DSA migrated to the new licensing scheme,  you can try to generate the SSC license using the old online riglol and using option AAAH.

If it doesnt work, it wont do any harm... If it does, then  :popcorn:.

Should be available here: http://int.rigol.com/Support/SoftDownload/3

Make sure to read the release notes!  May not be compatible with some older hardware revisions.

The following is some recent history of DSA705 - DSA815 Firmware changes with additional information (in bold Italics) that wasn't provided:
1. Updated Firmware 00.01.18.00.02, 2016-09-26
   -----Resolved Ultra Spectrum problem
   -----Perfected the SSC-DSA function   Not quite, see 2. below
2. Updated Firmware 00.01.19.00.02, 2018-04-11
   -----Solve the problem of LAN remote command timeout after opening 3 traces
   -----Modify the trace type for video average and power average
Included a change to the SSC-DSA 'SigCapture' mode to ensure always retaining Peak Level Storage for catching and displaying short/quick events.
   -----Some other bug(s) solved
Included solving the issue with USB Flash Drive storage of 'JPEG Screen Shots' being upside-down.
3. Updated Firmware 00.01.19.00.03, 2019-03-25
   -----Resolve SSC-DSA spelling of SigCapture
   -----Some other bug(s) solved

Comments related to the two previous Post Replies above:
 Re. Kean: All of the DSA815 Firmware updates are compatible with all hardware versions between 2011 through 2019 +.
 Re. sv1eia: If you install a newer Firmware update in your DSA705 - DSA815 you will have all of the current updates up to that point, without having to install previous updates before that point.  Although there were two individual exceptions to this that occurred between Firmware .08 and .12 that were caused by unique and individual anomalies from other unusual glitches.
 If previous DSA Firmware Updates are still required, please send me a PM request with a valid email address that will accept attachments (as PM's won't).

tv84:

Option AAAH works with my DSA815 SN: DSA8A1616.....
with FW 00.01.18 last updated in 2016-09-26 !

Thank you for this Information, never thought that this could work with my old device.

Hi,

Got firmware 00.01.18.00.02, tried to put the AAAH generated lic but it got rejected.
Can you please tell how did you do that or am I missing something?

Edit: It looks that my hardware version is later generation so it did not work..

Yes, have the older hardware here! It was one of the last HW / FW at that time the riglol deliberation was working.

Just forgot to deliberate the last function, tv84 mentioned and remember me to try that.

A totally free (MS PC and Mac.) 'Remote Control program' for the DSA705 - DSA875 Spectrum Analyzers.
A very nice basic control program is available from Peter Dreisiebner (EEVblog'er 'PeDre').  It is a portable program, meaning that you don't have to install it on your computer.  It can be run directly from a external USB Flash drive, etc.  The only requirement for installation is a 'Zadig' USB  driver.
The program is available at: https://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=de&u=http://peter.dreisiebner.at/rigol-dsa815/index.htm (English language), or http://peter.dreisiebner.at/rigol-dsa815/index.htm (German language).
You can see sample ' Screen Shots here:  http://peter.dreisiebner.at/rigol-dsa815/screenshots.htm
I mentioned this program before (https://www.eevblog.com/forum/testgear/spectrum-analyzer-rigol-dsa815/msg2130790/#msg2130790) in a previous post, and although it hasn't been fully completed, and may not be in this form, it is very useful, the price is right, and I feel it warrants additional exposure for new Rigol DSA users.  I'm not related or affiliated with Peter, it's just that I want to share my enthusiasm for his program.
Also see the following for more of Peter's contributions to our group:  https://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=de&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fpeter.dreisiebner.at%2F&sandbox=1
