    Mini weather station with Attiny85

    I've was using the tiny core but have now downloaded and tried the David Mellis core. I'm not so worried about making the Attiny85 use 2 pin LCD as I have wired the LCD to the Arduino Uno and am now using that as the receiver. The issue is still that lack of wireless communication.

    Mini weather station with Attiny85

    Not quite sure what you mean.The clock is set to 8MHz internal...if that's what you mean.

    That is exactly the case.I have double and triple-checked the pins and asked a friend to do it and can't find a fault.I'm running everything from the 5V supply pin from the Arduino Uno (that I used to program the Attiny85s).

    I'm not actually using the LCD. As a separate issue, I get millions of errors when using the LiquidCrystal_SR.h library. Errors like:C:\Program Files (x86)\Arduino\hardware\arduino\avr\libraries\Wire\src\utility\twi.c:426:40: error: 'TWEN' undeclared (first use in this function) TWCR = _BV(TWINT) | _BV(TWSTA)| _BV(TWEN) ;As i eventually plan as using the Arduino Uno as the receiver (with enough pins to not use the shift register) I ignored this while working and implemented the following code to use an LED to show it was working:if (t > 28) { digitalWrite(2, HIGH); }else { digitalWrite(2, LOW);}Any suggestions on how I might fix this?

    No, not connecting the antennas together. I connected one Attiny85's output pin 5 to the other Attiny85's input pin 6 and didn't used the wireless modules at all...and that worked...so I knew the Manchester code was working ok. Then I did a test like this (with button and LED) (start at 2:20):....to test that the wireless modules work...and they do.They just won't work to send the data from one Attiny85 to the other.Have also tried swapping out the wireless modules for two new ones and no change.

    Mini weather station with Attiny85

    Hi. I’m struggling to send the information wirelessly.I have made the full circuit and if I bridge the transmitters pin 5 and the receivers pin 6 together with a wire it works fine, so the Manchester library is working fine.I set up a simple wireless button and LED circuit with the transmitter and receiver modules and that works fine too.It just doesn’t work if I try and use the wireless modules to send the data from one Attiny85 to the other.Any suggestions?
