David,

Just to see if your setup is working:

1) Set the pulse generator to as fast a risetime as possible; ns or less. Use a low pulse rate (100 Hz is fine).
2) Use a BNC tee at the generator, into two equal 2 meter cables, each one into a 5370B input.
3) Set manual trigger, 50R, 1.0 V, DC
4) Now collect time interval data in block/stats mode. You should see a mean of under +/-1 ns and a stdev in low ps.
