So the plot thickens... Got my license for UCCNC - Imported my Mach 3 profile. Machine all works great under UCCNC. Homes the proper direction and moves off the switches. No limits are triggered. So bizarre.

Did you ever try creating a new profile from scratch in Mach3?
Mach3 .xml files go bad quite often, and cause all sorts of strange issues.

I'll try that next. Really probably need to make the leap to UCCNC anyway. -Off topic - I really like the way the wheel on my shuttle pro works - Does the 201 pendant operate similar or do you have to constantly rotate it?

Normal MPG's require constant rotation. They give a set amount of movement with each "click".

UCCNC is far superior to Mach3 in many ways. And the next full release will get it on par feature wise.

I had this exact same issue with the UC400 on machines. I ended up emailing the guys and CNCdrive and they looked at the plug in and it was an issue with the plug in itself.

They sent me a new plug in and it solved the homing issue.

See I knew I wasn't crazy. I've made the leap to UCCNC. My only complaint is that my shuttlepro doesn't work yet. So some plugin writing is in my future.
