Some delays in getting my control panel going; "honey-dos", short vacation. It's 90 % wired and some buttons working, 3 pots, 1 encoder, 2 joysticks, 2 leds. "C" axis jog totALLY NOT WORKING, must check out wiring and oem button. "C" will be for knee, yet to be installed servo.
Wondering if P Tegler got his encoder working or what.

Now that I have some of this working, I notice that my keyboard jogging buttons don't work!
Can anyone comment on that? Matevz?

nope.
I went all the way back to the most basic screen set, still no dice.
I even unmapped the Pokeys keyboard, still to no avail.
Anytime I map an MPG or encoder directly to ANY DRO, the mapping takes precedence, and interferes with the gcode control.

That's a bitch Paul.
I don't think it has anything to do with the screenset. I'm using my own weird set.
There is something making the setup act like you are connecting a pot. Being an electronic cripple, I don't know why. It seems that narrows possibilities to the encoder or the way it is wired. The encoder wiring diagram you published here included a + voltage connection and if you have that connected maybe it is the problem. The Pokeys wiring diagram for an encoder shows only three connections, one to ground, the other two to two numbered pins on the Pokeys.

Paul,
I went back to your post regarding the encoder. Try removing any wiring you used to set this up. Just use the three basic connections on the encoder; center to ground, A and B to two Pokeys pins.

Matevz,
Are you out there? Please look at post 32. Should connection of Pokeys disable the keyboard jogging keys?????

OzzieII.....  yep...wired it via the schematic with the part...was the way I started... throughout this thread I ripped out the extra and re-wired with just the three pin layout (GND and two inputs) no real change.
pokeys app sees the signals... just overrides whenever mapped .

MATEVZ !!!!
How about just a little more organization so a dummy can understand and find.
On you download page nothing is labeled firmware and there are a couple choices of software. Perhaps when you make a post like this you can just LINK to the proper "firmware and software". It's not supposed to be a puzzle.

CRAP!
I replaced the old .dll with the new, now Mach says it can't find Pokeys. I tried to reconfigure, says it can't find Pokeys !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What now?????????
