New Oscilloscope

While trying to debug some signals from my analog to digital converter, my oscilloscope started to do some weird things due to the signal being very out of range of its capabilities. I was going to get one for my 5 year bonus, but instead I decided to buy a new oscilloscope now after I saw it was cheap on amazon.

I decided to get the Rigol DS1052E, it is only 50MHz, however a while back a software hack was found for making it think it was a different model so that it would unlock the 100MHz capability it had in hardware.

I tested this newly unlocked 100MHz on the composite signal of my Gamecube. One nice advantage of a digital oscilloscope is that I can now record and pause the input.
