Problem Rotary Table Runs Backwards

Forums: 

I just moved our shop's HRT210(Brush type) from our '99 VF-2 to our '08 VF-4 for the 1st time. The rotary turns opposite directions from machine to machine. On the VF-2, when the handle jog knob is turned to the +, the platter on the rotary turned CCW. On the VF-4, turn the knob to + and the platter turns CW. A-axis positions in a program are opposite what they are supposed to be as well.
Is it something as simple as a setting that is wrong? The VF-4 does use a brush to brushless converter box if that means anything.

Did you set all of the parameters for it on the new machine. One of them changes directions.

Go to parameter 43 and invert the first two parameters:
REV ENCODER and REV POWER
Whatever they are, make them the opposite.

I figured it was something simple like that. Thank you for your help.
