Using a linescan camera, how do I trigger the start of an image on which I am triggering each line from an encoder?

Highlighted

I am using a linescan camera and an NI PCIe-1430. How do I trigger the start of an image on which I am ALSO triggering each line from an encoder?

 

The example C:\Program Files\National Instruments\LabVIEW 2009\examples\IMAQ\IMAQ Signal IO.llb\LL Trigger Each Line From Encoder.vi demonstrates how to trigger each line from an encoder and this works with the PCIe-1430 (even though it does not say that it works with the PCIe-1430 in the Example Finder). The example makes use of the IMAQ Configure Trigger3.vi to configure the scaled encoder trigger.

 

I tried to use the same IMAQ Configure Trigger3.vi to configure the IMAQ PCIe-1430 to "Trigger the start of acquisition" prior to calling it a 2nd time to "Trigger each line (linescan)". I do not get any errors, but neither does my code appear to work properly; instead the grab times out.

 

Any ideas?
