Hey Franc. Where's the actual download link on that page ? Every time I go
looking for a manual online, I keep fetching up at that site, but I never
seem to be able to find the download link to the actual pdf. Everything
you can click on seems to be either a Google ad, or some ancillary program
download. I'm probably being blind and dumb. Put a dopey old sod out of
misery, will you ? :-)


There is a "Get Manual" link about two thirds of the way down the
page, just to the right of centre.

Damn ! How did I miss that ? Well, I guess because of all the big brightly
coloured 'download' buttons, that are in fact just ads or ancillary programs
that you don't want ...

Anyways, the manual tells all with flow diagrams for the DVD section and
trouble shooting guides. It looks as though it is a two channel driver IC
for spindle and sled motors, and it looks as though it requires several
servo on signals to be present, before it outputs motor drive, as I
suspected might be the case.
