So I have been really struggling to get this servo shield to work. I started using the Lucid IDE and kept getting errors so I switched to the ISE. After much effort i managed to get the servo shield to output a PWM. And its beautiful. I have it hooked up to an Oscope and I can watch the pulse width changing, its quite magical. I followed the tutorial for servos using Verilog. the one where the servo should move back and forth.
Where I am getting lost and having issues is, when i actually plug a servo into the servo shield my output signal goes crazy weird. I have talked with my professors and we cannot figure out why it is doing this. Possibly feedback of some kind, really not sure though.
I will atatch pictures of the waveform before and after the servo is plugged in. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am graduating soon and this is part of my final project. Please help me.

After much trial and error I have determined I need a pulldown resistor. is there a way to do this in the board? or do I need an external resistor?
