Are you using the driver ? The commands would also be in the manual.

Hi Dennis


Thanks for your reply


Yes i am using the drivers and i am unable to configure.


I am using the examples given with the drivers and if i change the time base in the code it is not reflecting in the scope


If you have any examples kindly send me if possible


With regards

Hello Bala,

         I have a TDS 5104 at my desk and ran the "Acquire Multiple Waveforms Example" and changing the timebase worked correctly.  Without changing the default value, the scope's screen showed 800 ns/pt, and when I changed the timebase from 0.005 to 0.05, the scopes screen displayed 8.0 us/pt.


Please try that example and only change the timebase the same way that I did and tell us how many s/pt the scope's screen displays.
