Post Motor Issue
I am having trouble wiring my 3rd and 4th Tetrix motors on our robot. I have two Dc motor controllers. I have them both spliced to our our battery. My first two motors running off the same controller for Tetrix are working fine. I have a wire spliced that that controller to my second controller and the light on both controllers is on to prove that I have power running to both. My problem is that I can not get any motors to run off the second motor controller. Can anyone help me?
Thanks,

Would you be willing to post your code (including the #pragma statements at the top of the program) using the [code] tags? This way we can check and make sure the motor controllers are set up properly.

Also, double check to make sure that the cables from the NXT are daisy chained correctly and that the controllers are configured correctly in the Motors and Sensors Setup window (found in the Robot menu in ROBOTC). We have a quick setup guide on our wiki that can show you how to do this.

So fix it, maybe?

This is the ROBOTC forum, so you might not find too much help with Labview here. Instead, I would suggest posting on Labview's forums or, if this is for FTC (which I assume it is if you are using a TETRIX bot), the FTC forums. They should be able to assist you with the Labview coding/TETRIX issues.
