hi fraser, well it's behaving the same way for both, I don't know if that's a good sign.
I understand the index should lag behind, but it also changes every time I turn the wheel, even if it's just a little bit, but the first three digits stay the same, just past the thousands place changes
It should be connected properly according to the pinout on the US Digital site. I didn't install the encoder, it came attached to the motor assembly. I could flip the connector on the encoder and see if that fixes it, but would that damage it if it's already in the correct position, ie if it's already correct then flipping the connector would apply 5v to the index pin. pinouts here http://www.usdigital.com/assets/general ... heet_4.pdf
