I am quite stuck and becoming quite annoyed.
Anyway, I have a setup where I have an Arduino with a servo motor, TTL serial input from an external device (not through USB/pc), various components (buttons, leds etc).
My initial question is if it is possible for me to use my TTL signal on pins 0/1, I have tried and have not had any luck even after searching online for days.
Apart from this I am having a large amount of issues with the Arduino’s timers.
I do prefer to use a Arduino Uno but I also have a Mega which also has many more timers as explained here: http://letsmakerobots.com/node/28278
Is there any possible way to use the Servo library, NewSoftSerial/AltSoftSerial, millis/delay simultaneously? It is definitely not working as smooth as I want it.
I also have tried using the extra serial ports on the mega such as Serial1 with no prevail.
Is there a way to change the timer which millis/delay use on the mega?
Unfortunately I am unable to share all of my code due to many reasons.
Any help would be appreciated and would especially like to know how to utilize pins 0/1 even if it means disconnecting my device before uploading.
