I need to force AVID to use the P2-8 input signal for my Motor 1-- limits (because there is a fault on the board). This has been working fine for a year but my PC recently died and I can’t remember the spells that I cast to make it work.
MACH4 appears to accept my change to the Input Signal, but it seems that it gets overriden by AVID, as when I go back into the Configuration dialog, it’s been set back again to P2-4.
My email conversations with support@AVID mention that I need to disable the AVID MACH4 Configuration but doing that doesn’t help; the input signals for Motor 1 still get overridden to be P2-4, even though I have set them to be P2-8.
Restarting Mach4 didn’t make it work.
Rebooting the PC didn’t make it work.
The machine.ini file shows that MACH 4 has them set to P2-8, so I think this is AVID trying to “override” my change.
Can you think of anything I might have forgotten?
