You also have a few outputs which share the same pins as the motors, so best sort that out as well.

Based on my interpretation of the configuration guide I believe it is configured correctly, I have attached the info for review.
The problem only seams to be when we change fixture offsets during any given program. If we just use G54 things run fine.

Have you attached the correct manual? That is the standard Mach manual and I can assure you that when using the parallel port, or as far as I know, any other external device with Mach, you can not share ports and pins especially if you are specifying some of them as Inputs and some as outputs.

Ok I am at this time reading the DSPC manual that I have just downloaded and it seems that it indeed can be configured all as port 1 but the actual wires connect to different connectors on the DSPMC.

I am afraid I wont be able to test things here as I dont have the DSPMC :(
Have you talked to the DSPMC people about this as I suspect it may be a plugin issue.

OK I have attached a config pdf witch has the current I/O connections for the DSPMC controller showing the mapping. I have also attached the correct manual for the DSPMC,
Thank you again for your help

As said in my last post I am afraid I cant test due to me not having a DSPMC :(
Have you asked DSPMC people about this as it seems to me it may be a plugin issue.
Maybe a post on the DSPMC part of the forum will get answers if you have not already cdone so.

Just been looking at your xml again and see you have strange values for the SoftLimits. This may again be meant to be that way due to it being a DSPMC but normally with any other device I have seen you would have zero for X and Y min and Z Max and then X and Y Max would be the travel distance and Z Min would also be the travel but as a negative value.
Just wondering if that might be your problem?
