I have been challenged by my daughter to build a wireless baseball scoreboard. Being new at using and programming the Arduino I have tried copying and modifying various coding from Google. My current problem is that I can upload a simple IR 7 segment program (IR control of 7 segment led - works) to my Mega and it responds correctly to inputs. The display matches what I input on the universal remote. When I try to load a more complex IR program (scoreboard v7 FINALmodified) for some reason the Mega doesn’t appear to see the IR inputs. I get no TX light, and the serial monitor shows no activity. Everything related to the IR is exactly the same between the program which works and the program which doesn’t work. I am lost and running out of time.
