Hantek 1008C scope setup was created by Desmond6004
Now I've already researched a few threads and found "openhantek" mentioned a few times - but it looks like quite a mission to install it.
I've just received my own Hantek 1008C and tried it out - good value for money but I can't get it to show me voltages. It would be good if the display could even show some reference as to voltage scale. My display doesn't look like the images I researched and when I tried to download 'the latest' software it told me mine was newer. I bought a 20:1 fitting as well. Most of the controls at the top don't seem to work. If I hit the pause button it keeps going - if I pause it with the other button the zoom buttons don't do anything.
Is there some sort of "easy settings" I can use or an easy-to-install alternative to the program it came with?
In the image I have channel 1 connected to a 12v battery.

Getting involved in discussions because I have a lot to learn still.

ISTR OpenHantek wasn't written for the 1008

The key to getting it to work is to load an automotive pre-set using button 1 left arrow







Measurements accessed via button 3 main menu,

Having looked at the new software both in demo mode and connected to a 1008 in quick table top test I have come to the conclusion it is a total mess an even bigger mess than the previous software, but the key to working with it as with the earlier versions is to select any of the preset automotive tests and adjust the voltage, timebase and trigger settings to what you require. The presets are not very good but they are an a intial base setup you can work from. Once you find a setup that works you can save the settings to file and reload it the next time.

I just purchased the same scope. I’m a newbie at using the scope. How you like it?
Also I want to see the waveform on a IAC valve on a 1997 Honda Civic 1.6 4cylinder.
Do you know the hook up for this hantek including voltage and time.
