General Discussion / VMWare and Computer suggestions
« on: March 18, 2017, 02:01:42 PM »
I have used a miniscope with a MacBook Pro Retina booting into Windows 7 and with a Surface Pro (3) running windows 10.
I recently bought a new macbook pro but my University (in its infinate wisdom), has decided it will not allow users to dual boot computers. They have provided me with VMWare fusion but I have not managed to get it to work properly with a miniscope when running Windows 7 Enterprise with USB 3 support. I can get some video capture and a lot of crashes but I can't control the LED or exposure/frame rate. The miniscope is not recognised in device manager as MINISCOPE but as a VMWare USB driver so I am not very surpirsed it is not working properly.

Has any one else tried this. I know it is not a great way to proceed but ...
On a separate note, are there any examples of other computers, laptops that work. I may end up buying another laptop and so any suggestions of examples that work would be really helpful.

DAQ Software/Firmware / External Triggering
« on: December 05, 2016, 02:37:01 PM »
Sorry if I have missed a section on the excellent website but how does the external triggering work? There are 3 external SMA inputs/outputs on the DAQ box. If I connect to SMA 3, then sending a pulse seems to do something but I am not quite sure what?

Is this triggering per frame or triggering a sequence of frames?

I would like to trigger data collection externally to collect for a period of 10-15 seconds and then during this collection, trigger an external stimulus so that it is time locked to the data collection onset.

Any clues how to do this would be welcome.
What do the SMA connectors 1,2 and 3 do? Do any record signals.
