And motor tuning the same?
Try swapping the X and Y motors around and see if the problem follows the motor.

Ok next go into Ports and Pins Motor  setup and change the Step and Dir for X axis to 1 and 17 and then change Y to 16 and 14 and see if when you press the X jog keys if the motor is good, same for other motor when you press Y jog

Ok so if you unplug the parallel cable and attach your remote control does the Y axis move smooth?

Ok it would seem its a parallel port or Mach problem. I dont see anything wrong in your config so I would guess at a bad port or bad cable, most likely the cable.

OK, can I try the port with the test software and see if that gives me any information?
