I went the Tek route.  I had a 1240 for a long time, and 
then upgraded to a 9200 with 3 92A96 acq cards.
Quite a beast, with 288 channels at 10 ns.  They have 
transmission line cables to the pods, but the pods are 
passive, I think a parallel 82K resistor and a 1000 pF cap 
or something.  I made a VME analyzer card that has about 80 
channels wired up with those parts so the TLCs just plug 
into the card.

We have a DAS 520 at work, which is basically a 9200.  The 
9200/TLA500-700 series are not stand-alone analyzers like 
the old HP and Tek 1240 series.  You can use an X-windows 
terminal, or connect to it with any Xserver.  You do have to 
download fonts and make some adjustments to the setup file 
in the analyzer to make this work, however.  The analyzer 
mainframe runs a version of Unix.
