MK3/4 JOG on external keyboard doesnt work with TNG

Postby idanilov » 18 Jun 2017, 16:45

I found several topics with the same problem and none of them solved.

I have two MK3/4 boards. One is successfully updated to new TNG version. On the second old firmware is left.

The same external keyboard works with old firmware MK3/4 board and Planet CNC software, and doesn't work with the new firmware and Planet CNC TNG software, so the keyboard is not the problem.

Jog from the software works on both MK3/4 board, but from JOG connector it doesn't work on the MK3/4 board with new firmware and TNG.

The TNG software sees changes on IO JOG display when I press buttons on keyboard.

Also when the button on the external keyboard JOG1 or JOG2 or.... JOG8 is held pressed, Jog from the TNG software doesn't work either.

It seams that the keyboard function is disabled in TNG software. There is no keyboard enable checkbox in the settings like in older software version.

How to enable external keyboard from TNG software?

I also have few questions:
1. What is Timeout in jog options and why it can't be under 1000ms?
2. Also I didn't menage to find what does shift, alt1 and alt2 do in JOG connector ?
3. Where did two option checkboxes for each MPG mode went in new TNG software?

I attached my setting file. Hope you could answer fast on these questions.

I do not understand how to "set pins" in this menu. In order to get my keyboard to jog. Please can you clarify?
