Sampling above 50MHz

Help to track any bugs about DSView software
So I tried to take a trace of 25Mhz clock from SPI flash and if you sample at 50Mhz it works OK I compared it with Saleae logic analyzer if you go 100MHz and above results start to changes and it shows weird period 20MHz instead of 25MHz at 100/200 and 400MHz sampling results are different for the same signal. Looks like firmware update is needed? Yes I'm using latest v0.95 DSView. See attached samples.

Hi rosin232,

Obviously, The clock you measured is not a 25M signal, the real frequency is about 19M.
With higher sample rate, you will get more detail of your signal.
For example, with 400MHz sample rate, per 2.5ns a point will be sampled.
with 50MHz sample rate, per 20ns a point will be sampled.
