    Re: Has anyone tried a DSO Nano?

    I've had mine about month and haven't a clue how to use it. I can't get a wave to form. I'm really bad with computers and such, I'm sure its easy,

    If you are having trouble with the DSO just plug it into something playing a 40hz tone on repeat (or any tone for that matter) and set it to "auto." If I remember correctly, it will size the waveform correctly so it's easily visible. There's many tutorials on Youtube on how to use it, it's a very handy tool to have around.

    What are you trying to do that the official firmware on the DSO cannot?

    Yeah I thought I had dumped in BenF firmware when I first got it but I just updated it to the latest version today and realized I was still running the stock as the GUI is different now...and the purple waveform is gone!

    You sound like a kid man, do a little research. The DSO Nano has an entire forum section devoted to the DSO Nano and it's firmware. I'm pretty sure if you try hard enough you'll figure it out, it's really not that difficult.

    A quick overview of how I did it.

    Download firmware
    Extract (it's two files)
    Connect DSO via usb
    Boot while holding the down button (or minus button if yours has + and - instead of up and down) to get into the firmware update mode
    Drag and drop files onto disk once it shows up in My Computer ONE AT A TIME, it should disconnect and reconnect with the file's extension changed to .RDY
    After both are on the disk just reboot it and it should run the new firmware


    There's also a program they suggest in the Wiki to use to do the update but I believe that method wouldn't work for me the first time I updated but the drag/drop method did (I do have the V1 though so newer versions may need the program)

    I haven't used my DSO in a while, so forgive my generalized terms, but there are two settings that you can alter while the signal is going, one will make the wave smaller/larger (vertically) and another will make it smaller/larger horizontally. There's only 4 buttons (up/down/left/right) you'll really be using while setting gains, otherwise it's almost plug and play. There's no shortage of tutorials on Youtube on how to use the DSO. A simple search will help you out.

    If you update it to the newest OEM software, you can just scroll down to the purple option and click to the left once, and it disappears.

    I know how to do it. Im not new to electronics and stuff. I used to program things a while ago. The reason I cant update to BenF is that DfuSe doesn't see my nano when I plug it in. Another try today.

    I did what they do but theirs seem to auto scale. Mine doesn't.
