I have success with the TDS540A, not sure if that helps you.

see: https://github.com/bsdphk/pylt/blob/master/tds540a.py

One of the tricks I had to do, is that the scope does not send
EOI to signal that the screen-dump is complete, you have to look
out for the ASCII Form-Feed (0x0c) character.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
