Can you say what does not work. Do multiple channels come on at the same time. random channels or no channels. Just saying it does not work can be alot of things.

How are you powering the Grinch?
Dose The Led On the Grinch light?
Dose The Led On the associated SSRs light?
I see In your Siginature you also have a Ren-c have you tested without the Ren-C
Have You read the Troubleshooting Guide http://www.doityourselfchristmas.com/wiki/index.php?title=Troubleshooting_Guide_%E2%80%93_Th e_Grinch

what mode is your parrellel port set to

epp+(another thing) i don't have epp only, i tested with all modes. i watch that i can select diferent versions of epp mode, i have 1.7 and 1.9 i'm using 1.9

now pass 2 hours testing grinch, i have another problem.
The ssr work correct, and when i conect the mbi5027 to the computer and i turn it on some chanels go on and some of. But it isn't working with computer. And if i disconect the grinch and i conect another time, the channels go on another time but with a diferent order.

And if i disconect the power, the power led go on and of every 2 seconds (and the test sequence that i'm runing is 2 second on 2 second of) but the led is not lighting at 100%

I'm going to be crazy

PS: i don't talk good english, you understand me??
