Hi Craig,Tweakie
made those changes  5 but no change. Mach3 shows dro working when left and right buttons pushed. no motor movement.
I think now is the time to take the BOB out and recheck all sodier joints and components. I will do that the rest of the day If I replace it to no avail, I will buy another one.

Looking at you .xml fileā€¦

The Step & Direction pin allocations in Motor Outputs do not match the .pdf document (manual) you have attached in post #22.
If you are using Estop then you need to allocate a Port# in Input Signals.
In Motor Tuning I suggest you change the Step Pulse and Dir. Pulse  to 2uS.
Perhaps also try changing the Step Low Active State in Motor Outputs (from cross to tick) and see if that makes any difference.
