NC32-v2.36 MDI/Buffer Operation
I have a small lathe set up, and am able to to jog, home axes using Adv600 control panel, but do not fully understand how the MDI & buffer operate.

I first home the X & Z axes.

I enter 'S400 M03' (on separate lines) into the edit window, click the 'Write to Buffer' command button, then push the 'Cycle Start' button. Spindle rotates as expected.

If I then enter 'Z1.5' (just some move to verify operation) into the edit window, as soon as I click the 'Write to Buffer' command button, it kills the spindle rotation. Pushing the 'Cycle Start' button causes the Z to move, as expected.

Is this 'normal' operation for this software? BTW, this was using the v2.36 software, NOT the v2.36(1) 4 program changes.

I enabled buffer logging and got these results:

Yes this is normal operation - it is done as a safety precaution.
