#168, BIG THX to oldcqr,

this was the only way for me to enable the requested function(s). I got the scope at the 1st of March with firmware/software as described in this post, but it was NOT possible to connect via telnet. Only the way around the Python-Script worked like a charm. I think, that SIGLENT did some "adjustments" within the firm.  8)

Hi all,

thanks for this excellent work.
Just bought a SDS1104X-E.
Software Version: 8.1.6.1.35R2
For all that wan't to know if it's still possible, to recover your keys in a case of an emergency (lost receipt etc.): yes!

I can confirm, that using this https://replit.com/@wgoeo/siglent-keygen script, which I ran locally on my PC using Python 3.9 interpreter, works like a charm.

Enter in the script header:
- the SCOPE-ID without dashes, spaces etc (just numbers and lowercase letters), which you can obtain via the SCPI web interface using the command > SCOPEID? (without the leading >)
- The SN, which you can see at the web interface of the scope at the start page (connect your scope via LAN or WLAN).

The 200M option needs to be entered via the SCPI web interfaces using the command > MCBD XXXXYYYYYY (without the leading > and XXXXYYYYYY being the output of the above python script in the line starting with "200M")
The other options (AWG; WIFI, MSO) need to entered via the UI of the scope. Printing them out like this AAAA BBB CCCC DDDD make life a lot easier, since you need to enter them in blocks of 4.

Using this TP-Link stick will result in a working Wifi:

It's dirt cheap at .e.g Amazon.

Just got my 1104x-e today.  It is also running firmware 6.1.35R2.  This (and the previous python script posted earlier) worked for me, producing keys that unlocked the WiFi, MSO, AWG features.

I had problems with the bandwidth key because originally I did not remove the dash characters from my SCOPEID? output before putting it in the python script.  You have to do that.  Then and only then will the hash function also produce the correct keys for the bandwidth settings.  I actually think it produces the correct keys for the add-on features without SCOPEID at all.

I put an updated-for-2021 step-by-step guide in this blog post.

To everyone that said thank you, you are welcome!

Just an update [tl;dr  - Now up on latest firmware with all options enabled]

My scope came with 8.1.6.1.33, and a few pages ago (almost 2 years now) I was successful in the update from 100m to 200m.  At the time I did not apply any of the other codes. 

A few days ago I found the wireless adapter I was pretty sure I needed (https://amzn.to/2TU4hLB).  I got it and sure enough, it worked in Demo mode.  Perfect.  I got the script back out, successfully generated the 3 option keys (using my Serial number, not scope ID).  Installed via the UI.  All 3 activated without issue.  WOO!

I then went ahead and downloaded the latest available firmware from Siglent (the 6.1.35R2 others have talked about), and installed that into the scope.  Again no problem and all the options remained activated (along with 200m).

The only weirdness was that the Wireless adapter did not get found after the first reboot.  I had to remove the USB adapter, reboot a second time, and then install it.  Wireless came back up.  I was sweating just a little - but it didn't make sense it worked on the older version and not the new.

As per the release notes, you should perform a self calibrate if you came from 6.1.33 or earlier.

Hi 1104X-E users !

I just discovered FW 6.1.37R2 has been issued few weeks ago. This update requires base OS V2 install (I assume it is for new NTP client functionality but I may be wrong).

Anyone had a try with it ? If yes, is there any nasty side effect ?
awful newbie

I think the OSv2 update is voluntary. The new firmware breaks WiFi though, if you use that.
