Subject: c1iscex is not seeing its Binary Output card 

Problem:

c1iscex does not even see its 32 channel Binary output card.  This means we have no control over the state of the analog whitening and dewhitening filters.  The ADC, DAC, and the 1616 Binary Input/Output cards are recognized and working.

Things tried:

Tried recreating the IOP code from the known working c1x02 (from the c1sus front end), but that didn't help.

Checked seating of the card, but it seems correctly socketed and tightened down nicely with a screw.

Tomorrow will try moving cards around and see if there's an issue with the first slot, which the Binary Output card is in.

Current Status:

The ETMX is currently damping, including POS, PIT, YAW and SIDE degrees of freedom.  However, the gds screen is showing a 0x2bad status for the c1scx front end (the IOP seems fine with a 0x0 status).  So for the moment, I can't seem to bring up c1scx testpoints.  I was able to do so earlier when I was testing the status of the binary outputs, so during one of the rebuilds, something broke. I may have to undo the SVN update and/or a change made by Alex today to allow for longer filter bank names beyond 19 characters.
