Just thought these boards are common +5v so the pulse stream is triggered to ground, which to my mind at least is a better way of connecting.
  As an aside for quickly checking beakout boards without setting up drivers and motors,use an earbud or small speaker ,i use a piezo transducer,
and connect the pulse output stream to your speaker,you will hear it buzzing at different frequencies (according to feed rate) if all is well.
just incse here is the xlm file i tested on, im running on windows 7

OK, that seems to have worked.
unzip and drop into your plugins folder. on startup connect to the RnR motion controller.
it seems to do every thing automatically.it makes no difference to the 4 motors what you put in the motor i/o table or in fact whether you have any ports switched on.
the only issue I had was that it put the jog speed at 100% which caused some confusion untill I worked that out!
I havent tested the switch i/o's as yet but I cant see why they shouldnt work .

Im not sure that video posted earlier is correct??

Hey Craig thanks for that really helpful advice ,that was exactly what I was looking for!
Actually I worked it out myself, you just have to use the correct plugin,works a treat  had one running 4 axis on a soak test for 48 hours not one problem. fantastic value at £20 a pop as opposed to £140 for a uc300 or£200 for a smooth stepper,
 just ordered another 4 as they cant be at that price for much longer !
    Merry Christmas
