Still not working -
I went back and deleted the libraries and picked up a new version of the code. I will likely try to uncomment the Serial.println functions from the library (although that is new for me).
it senses the end of the key press, it knows that it received a duplicate code, but it just is not translating the code.
Any other thoughts ?
btw: as long as I am in the asking mode, I was planning on putting this in an interrupt on pin 3. Any issues with that ?
Thanks for your help. I will take all the suggestions I can get.
