thank you for taking the time to show me how to go on. I confess I'm going to need to spend some time looking at the brains side of it. there doesn't seem to be enough information in the string to work at first glance, but that's me not understanding what I'm looking at!!

You can add 4 pics per post, just click the more attachments text for each pic you want to add.

I will do a quick vid and upload to youtube to let you see how the brain is working.
In the vid I will just emulate an input via my keyboard and set it up in the brain to do a feedhold if it is seen. I will then look at the feedhold LED in Mach and if it is seen then it will turn on an output, that output would work your panel LED.
