What country are you from? If you update that in your profile people may help in your native language.

I have no experience with this freq counter class, buton the page there is a reference to an earlier fequency library - http://interface.khm.de/index.php/lab/experiments/arduino-frequency-counter-library/ - that is maybe simpler to use with your schema. There is also the email of the original author, maybe he is able to help.

hopes this gets you started,

I'm from Poland. I write to author of this libraries and he won't help me :/


What frequency range are we talking about?

It looks like you don't plan to use the internal analog comparator like the library that you reference since you already have an external one.

Also it looks like you plan to just use 2 pins and I assume 2 counters for this.

Is my understanding correct?
