Hi..... I have two motors running my x axis, when i home the x axis, one motor goes one way and the other motor goes the opposite direction
both are set to active low, I'm thinking i have to change direction of one motor but i need help with the wiring see attached pic

Reverse B- and B+ wires to one motor.

The motor will now spin in opposite direction.

How about in General Config, "Home slave with master"?
