Questions for the Arduino world at large:1. Has anyone experienced the kind of lockup in AFSoftSerial that etracer describes?2. Please let me know if you a. notice any difference in behavior between AFSoftSerial and NewSoftSerial. b. have successfully tested multiple instances of NewSoftSerial. c. have any observations about baud rates that don't seem to work reliably with either AFSoftSerial or NewSoftSerial.Mikal
Could this be because pins 2 and 3 (used very often in the soft serial examples I've seen) share an interrupt with the UART on pins 0 and 1? Unfortunately, my device requires a specially designed shield so I can't move pin assignments around easily, but if someone who is having interrupt problems could try using, say, pins 8 and 9 for the soft serial and see if they continue to have problems, that would be an interesting experiment.
