Thanks MarkL for your reply.

So this means it is not a dc input => it is not very valuable  :(

Probably not too valuable for bench use, but I could see it being useful for someone who did a lot work in the field.

You could use the battery pack connector as a "DC In" if you wanted to use the scope with a DC supply or external battery:

Hello all.
I can confirm that BW upgrade worked on my TPS2014. But only if a full calibration is done after entering the password and model trough the serial interface. The BW limit is now gone up to 200Mhz. So thanks to all who made this upgrade possible. :clap:

Perhaps the ARMDEMO command found in newer models will work on these too?
Code: [Select]

I sent these instructions with OpenChoice Talker Listener vie Ethernet to my TDS3032C:

PASSWord INTEKRITY
SETMODELID 5
HWAccountant:ACQBandwidth 500

Nothing happened.  :(
Is this format correct?

I've got a TDS3012, and one channel isn't functioning.... However I'd like to explore using this bandwidth hack.

However, I don't have a B or C model, and don't have any I/O modules like a GPIB or Ethernet module.

Is there somewhere that I can find a serial header to issue the commands?

Just bought a TDS3014B and can also confirm a successful upgrade to a TDS3064B.

I have access to an old HP RF generator so I tried to check the BW extension. The test wasn't too accurate as I don't have a leveled sine generator. I could measure a HF rolloff at 490MHz (-3dB) using coax cable and 50ohm termination. Using a P6139B probe might push the rolloff even lower. So I presume the upgrade is more a TDS3044B which is still more than enough for me.

The scope has a battery pack installed and I can confirm that the 15V DC power output works with no AC power line connected. This is a nice feature as you can test small prototypes in the field.
