First of all, it took me while to find this subforum, my apologies for contacting the author directly. Here goes the write-up:
In version 0.9.7, the dropdown (combobox) widgets in the capture dialogs don't work anymore. I mean, they _do_ drop down, but it is not possible to change the selection. This happens both in the sample rate setting and in the recording size setting.
I resurrected version 0.9.6, and things are normal there. I can even set values for both (sample rate and recording size), and they will then be read in 0.9.7 (but are unchangeable).
After focusing the combobox with a mouse click, it is possible to select the sample rate (or capture size) with the keyboard. <enter> then correctly selects the item.
I just noticed that the Color scheme selection combobox _does_ work with the mouse. Not entirely normally though: The dropdown menu appears at the other end of the OLS window, completely separate from where the actual Preferences dialog is (8 cm away).
I'm terribly confused. I have found _a lot_ of versions of the firmware and bit streams to upload and I'm not sure which is the correct one. I found at least as many pages with instructions, all a little different. And the instructions tell to use -vid 0x04D8 -pid 0xFC90, while the board enumerated as -pid 0xFC92.
Bus 002 Device 025: ID 04d8:fc92 Microchip Technology, Inc.
I get no reply when using FC90, and I get (using fw_update -vid 0x04d8 -pid 0xfc92 -ver):
Ok, Tayken... I tried to use RLE for a while, but I can't seem to understand it. I mean, I do understand the algorithm of course, but the data coming in from the sniffer seems almost random. These are some observations:
The client (the standard Java client 0.9.6) shows the data, but doesn't seem to insert the correct time in between changes. Each 'time slot' on the graph has a change, so it's as if the time isn't taken into account
The actual data seems very suspicious. Channels are repeated randomly, and I cannot seem to relate the data to what is really happening.
When in 'normal', non-RLE mode, I can get samples which do make sense though, so I suspect the communication is working correctly.
I'd appreciate suggestions! Maybe I'm just doing something wrong here... John
This is my first post, and I just got the Sniffer working! Works nicely...
Given the reduced size of the storage, I was thinking it might be interesting to have trigger mode which only stores if there is a change on any of the lines (or on selected lines). Particularly for a project which I'm debugging, this would be very useful, as I am not really interested in the lime scale per se, but I am interested in the sequence of changes.
