Using inputs below Points 10-15
« on: October 16, 2013, 01:28:05 AM »
So I have a second BOB (C10) that I put in a while back and have it setup to use Pins 2 thru 15 as inputs. I notice that on the ports and pins config only ports =>10 can be used. Must be missing something where I can utilize the 9 pins I switched over to input on the BOB itself.

I have checked the box for pins 2-9 as inputs under the Port2 setup in the ports and pins main tab. save and close Mach3. Re-open and set input#1 as 2-8 for example, but it will not recognize a change in switch state. Works with pins 10,11,12,12,15 just not 2-9 on port 2.... Hmmmmm

You just set them up there. These numbers at the bottom are referring to Port 1.
If however you have set them to Port 2 and they do not work it could be the PCI card is not capable of being set to that mode. Been a long time since I used a PP but I have had cards that were only capable of pins 1-9 etc being outputs.

Got home tonight and started up the computer (did this last night btw) and also cycled the power to the C10. Suddenly it works like a charm.
