OK, did the test on the pulses and they definitely show up on my oscilloscope screen. I used 2 channels, 1 on the output of the BS2 and on on the other end of my wire, they were the same.
So, I am wondering if my sabertooth is fubar cause I still am getting random actions using 1000, 1500 and 2000 us pulses and the motors never stop together (i.e they both start in the same direction, the on the next pulse, they turn in opposite directions, sometimes they speed up or slow down, sometimes one stops and the other keeps turning). My question is: should I be using shorter pulses even though what documentation I have says 1500us is stop?Getting frustrated now cause it was a nice chunk to lay down for a motor controller.
I have no personal experience with it. However, you didn't mention if the pulses were the right width or not?If the pulses can be set to 1500µs and the 'tooth still doesn't behave, perhaps you should ask the folks behind it what goes wrong.

SaberTooth Motor-controllers are made by Dimension Engineering. They also make nice switching regulators.
I have not heard back from DE yet eother. One would think that after laying down $124 for a controller they would at least help out a little.
