    Hello people,
    I need to interface my Tektronix TDS3054B with my PC so that i can
    obtain the data from the screen to my PC. I don't need anything fancy
    - i just need the information from the 4 channels, that's all. I have
    only the standard parallel port that comes with the TDS... where do i
    start? Do i need to purchase an additional Serail Port add on?
    Thanks in advance!

    Easiest way with TDS30xxB: Use Ethernet port to connect to PC.
    Obtain Excel plug-in controls from Tektronix.

    So does this mean i can't use the parallel port? I guess so because it
    is just a printer port, right?

    Thanks! I just found out the TDS3054B has a built in Ethernet port...
    that should work with a little bit of effort , i guess... sorry for
    the trouble!
