The thing is, all of the timer compare match pins are used by hardware devices. Is there any way to use a timer and not have it output on it's related compare match pins?
Why all the bickering? It is completely optional whether the output of a timer is directed to a hardware pin. For example, for "TCCR0A – Timer/Counter Control Register A":
COM0A1 = 0, COM0A0 = 0: Normal port operation, OC0A disconnected.
"Normal" operation (whatever that means) is that the output pin is not connected.
(edit) I suppose "normal" means you get to use the port in its normal way, that is the way you choose to use it.
