I read completely through all the posts you referenced.  I saw the question asked a couple of times, "Where do I find keygrabber?" but no one saying where to find it.  The posts suggests it is discussed in the Mach 2 pdf manul 6.11.  I get an error message when trying to open that manual in the documentation section of the Mach website.  These posts also suggest that it might be found in the screen sets, #4, maybe, but not sure what I am looking for.  Guess I need something more specific.

I am totally new to this kind of thing, so I guess I'm not sure what i'm doing.  The keygrabber will give me the keystroke codes which in turn are programmed into my remote, in my case the Logitech Wingman.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Has anyone sucessfully used a Logitech Wingman game pad as a remote control with Mach 3?  I am wanting to remotely jog all axes, move to 0,0, and start the cutting program.

Thanks guys.  Looks like the problem has been fixed by simply editing the script for the Ref All button to add  Code   "G28".  The one fluke that I wasn't expecting was that the X axis moved about 25" and then came back to its intended spot.  The 2nd time it only moved about 3" and then came back to its intended spot. 
Thanks again for all the help.

First time poster and newbie to Mach 3. 

I have a homing/limit switch on 3 different axis, wired in series, all hooked to the same port and pin.  After each switch is tripped in the Reference All Home routine I want the machine to move to some offsets that will become my regular working 0,0.  I understand this is possible to do via the homing/limit function.  I have placed the offset dimesnions in the G28 boxes in the lower left of the Homing/Limit screen.  The Auto Zero function is turned on for all 3 axis. but when the Ref. All Home button is pushed the machine goes to the different home postions for each axis, but does not move to the designated offsets.  What am I doing wrong?
