Homing Sequence In MACH3 and EMC2

I understand that Mechmate gentry type CNC router with tandem axes-XX ( 2 motors on the X movemet) is using MACH3 CNC software.
Looking at the User Manual of MACH3, the configuration for this tandem axes is quite straight forwards.
From Mechmate users, I like to know whether there is any problem for the homing sequence of the 2 motors on X movement.
Seemly basic requirement for CNC machine operation of this "homing", can be quite complicated for
tandem axes configuration, such as in the case of EMC2. (Detail discussion on EMC2 Forum on Tandem Axes-YY).
I would appreciate to get some opinions on this matter.
Thank you,

I'm using Mach3 and prox. sensors. Setting up Mach3 is easy and straignt forward. The "other" X axis is setup as A and a slave to the first motor.

My Mach3 homing/zero routine works great on the MechMate.

The right answer -extract from a email conversation

Under config/ General config there is a check box for "home Slave with
Master" That should fix your trouble
