For some reason, all the links seem to point to a TDS220 communication issue.

Is it just me or did something get screwed up?

Depending on where I am, and what browser I am using, sometimes the links do or do not work. You might be able to right click, copy the link location, then paste it into your browser address bar. Or it might be something in your cookies causing the problem.

Andy is right the links does not work.
The reason is that the links lead to "http://www.tek.com/forum/..." when they should be "http://www1.tek.com/forum/..."
Probably inside the domain instead the links work normally.
If you try all work with this method.

Ok, I have updated the links to be www1.tek.com. Please post if there are any further problems with the links.

O.k. now all links in the cgifool post works well.
But still do not work the first two links of the JVG post while the third, despite having the same problem, lead in the right place.

The forum has undergone changes since these posts were originally made. Some links that were added to posts back then may not work now in the present forum. The links in these posts were created by the forum users as the search at that time was not very useful. The search has been much improved so finding what you are looking for is much easier.

The explanation and the solution are both in the post just above yours.

The search is far from perfect but it is adequate in this case. For example search for "adding video trigger", the first hit you get is the same thread:
