Yeah, that is much better. Not sure you have to use a 1K pullup. See if a 3K3 
or a 4K7 does gives you clean signals. BTW, your earth pin on your scope is too 
long and that is why you are seeing noisy signals. Search google for "scope 
probe short ground” and look at the images on how to do this. 

Regards,
John
