FSW: Check for SYNC error via remote control


I am using the 3GPP application.

When the FSW is not synchronized to the signal, there is a big red bar with 'Sync failed' at the bottom of the display.

How can I check for this via remote control?


You can use the following command to check the status of the info bar at the bottom of the display:


When the status is 'Sync failed', this command returns '8'. This indicates that there is an error.

The command

SYSTem:ERRor:EXTended? ALL


SYSTem:ERRor:EXTended? ERRor

can be used to find out the exact error.
