Propscope is Self Aware

Hello Forums! I like my PropScope when it works. However the dials and switches on the propscope screen move themselves. This happens while propscope is on RUN as well as when the scope is on RUN with the green light off. I'll try changing the voltage scale and it moves back or to random positions. I try changing the trigger from off to continuous and it goes right back. I'm in a failure mode of plugging it in and out and restarting Propscope over and over. Very difficult to use at that since I can't set it up the way I need and have it stick. Perhaps the cogs have become self-aware and now will work against me?

Minor beef with the voltage level trigger control. The trigger level cursor moves in very large steps, usually off-screen at the smallest mouse input. If there was a way to just type in the voltage I want it would really help me out.

    Hi Ian,
    I apologize for what is much more likely to be a bug... I have not heard of what you're describing before, but the v1.05 beta may help- get it here:
    http://hannoware.com/propscope/propscope105h.exe
    Setting the trigger level more precisely has been fixed in that version.
    If your PropScope truly is self-aware, please take good care of it...
    Hanno

    @Ian,

    Does that mean that it is no longer self-aware or that it's consciousness died? tongue.gif

    Near as I can tell, Granz.· It's self-agency was completely destroyed [noparse]:([/noparse]· When I move dials and switches they just sit there, as if dead.· It's sung it's last line of "Daisy"

    Good oscilloscope though!

    And you knew that the trouble that was brewing was getting pretty bad when the o'scope told you "I'm sorry Ian, I'm afraid I can't do that..." shocked.gif

    Glad to hear that it is working now though. How do you like the scope; it's usability, interface, controls, etc. How about it's response range?

    Thanks,

    Does that mean you have to eat a Propeller Proto-Board? wink.gif
