As a general rule, you always want to use the probe in 10x mode unless you need to look at a signal that's too small to see in 10x mode. In 10x mode it loads down the circuit less and helps protect the scope from over voltage damage. Also, the bandwidth in 1X mode is generally very low.
Wanted list:
RCA CTC19 or 27
Sony KV-7010U

Ahhhh, that'll help with the loading problems I've been seeing when I probe stuff! I figured that was the problem but it never occurred to me to solve it that way.
