I've measured +24v to the pin when the limit switch is triggered. Pin 1 on SB6 is also directly wired from +24V on the power supply plug to it, as an always on signal for this testing.

ok that's good, can you from a command prompt do a
dmesg | grep 6i25 and attach the output
also with pathpilot running in the MDI do a ADMIN HALCMD SHOW
then also attach your /home/operator/gcode/logfiles/pathpilotlog.txt

also, how are you running halmeter? are you starting it from within pathpilot with a ADMIN HALMETER?
please?

Im using ADMIN HALMETER from within Pathpilot itself. Also, ADMIN HALCMD SHOW does not ellicit a response in Pathpilot.

I couldnt get a response in Terminal with dmesg | grep 6i25. Am I doing that wrong?

I've attached my logfiles

I see in your log you originally used the incorrect bit file and the last entry was the correct 5i25-7i76x2.bit
have you noticed any difference since that change?
the tormach bit file does not support the 7i76 so it would be suspected as a problem.

I'm at work and that was a quick look.
I wouild love to see linuxcnc and/or tomach to timestamp log file (pet peeve of mine)

Well yes, I swapped the bitfile for the 7i76 compatible one and am working on the .hal to use the inputs from the 7i76 instead of Tormach`s card. Where is the tormach timestamp logfile located?

I would try LinuxCNC to verify the hardware
(and have access to known working tools)

Which pin names are you looking at?

I do most of my card testing at the command line to reduce the variables.
Copy and paste this into the terminal.
halrun
loadrt hostmot2
loadrt hm2_pci
loadrt threads
addf hm2_5i25.read thread1
addf hm2_5i25.write thread1
start
show pin
loadusr halshow

Now you can add the input bits to the halshow "watch" tab and see what happens.
