The bandwidth setting doesn't do anything on the CBX card--it's only 
used to set the analog bandwidth between the cards baseband/IF output, and
   the ADC.

The bandwidth delivered to the host depends, in this case, on the 
specified sample rate.

What type of host interface are you using in this case?  From the 
spectrum plots, it looks like you're asking for two channels of 25Msps 
each, which
   will not "fit" over 1GiGe at 16-bit samples.

Do you get any 'O' being output while you run this flow-graph?  What 
type of computer?
