RadioHead ASK & Timers issues (expert help)


Earlier I was having an issue which was that my TLC5940 and the Radiohead ASK library were incompatable (the TLC5940 library uses timers one and two, and the radiohead ASK library uses timer one OR two).

I solved that problem by making it so that the Radiohead ASK library uses timer 5 on my Mega.

Between two Mega’s that worked fine.

However, I want to use a Arduino Pro 328 16mhz 5v for the TX. The issue is that it does not have a timer 5.

When I use timer 1 on the pro mini and timer 5 on the arduino mega, the mega does not receive the signals from the arduino pro. However, if I use timer 1 for both the message is received.

Is there something I can do to remedy this?

I attached my modified ASK library just in case I screwed something up when switching from timer 2 to timer 5.
