Problem with multiple rotor control
- I am using N1MM Rotor to control Alfa Spid rotors on Coms 1, 3 and 4.
In manual mode, I am able to select each individual rotor and it
turns where it is supposed to. My problem is trying to get N1MM
Logger to turn a stack (2 rotors at once). I believe I've set up both
Rotor Setup and Configurer > Antennas correctly per the manual, but
still the program only sends one of the two rotors to the desired
heading. It seems to send the commands to the rotor that was last
selected manually in N1MM Rotor, and no amount of Alt+F9'ing and
Alt+J'ing seems to have any effect, other than in the little text box
at the bottom of the entry screen.
I have turned off the XP Firewall, even though I got no error popups,
just to be sure it wasn't the culprit.
I have the updated chips for the control boxes from Alfa Radio installed.
I have a feeling I'm overlooking something obvious, but I need someone
to clunk me with a rock to get me pointed in the right direction. Any

Does N1MM Rotor work correctly when going from, say, +10
degrees to 350 degrees? IE, it should turn 20 degrees
counterclockwise through north. What I am seeing is that
it turns 340 degrees clockwise through south. Also, if it
is on 340 degrees and 330 degrees is selected, it tried
to turn 350 degrees clockwise.
The control box works correctly with TRX Manager if
the "reverse mounted" box is checked.
What are details on the updated chips for the control boxes?
I don't see anything on the Alfa Radio site about them.
