Thanks for the reply.
Chiefly, I'd like to sample a given number of analog channels connected to various instrumentation. Yes I agree that VISA API seems more convenient and I've been sorting through the help and functions and making some progress.
It seems that MAX is fairly intelligent in configuring my devices. It appears so, but I don't see any specific channels to test. Is this just not possible with my hardware or have I configured it incorrectly?
Secondly, as I understand it my PCI-MXI-2 card communicates with my VXI-MXI-2 buss in slot 0 which then communicates with my Tektronix signal conditioners in the other slots. But, which device do I aim to communicate with from LabView?
