General Mach Discussion / Setting Limit switches

Right I am new to both cnc and mach, i have been building my machine from scratch and casting aluminium bits for some time now, eventualy i come to the electronics.
Last weekend i wired and successfully linked each linit switch Home and Limit+ to a pin on the printer port, and as i clicked a switch i could see the lights change.
now this week end having got some motors runing i can nolonger see the port activity when i click a limit or home switch.

Question what would stop the diagnostics screen from displaying the pin activity,  the most obvious is that i set somthing unknowingly but what.

Any help!!!!!!!

if you would like to see my creation click on the link above and navigate to the CNC link you will see the build unfold.

Thanks

Roger
