Hi Scott.
Some time ago I was working in a program that activate a routine once every
10 seconds, I used a "watch xtal" as oscilator for the PIC (32.768 Khz Xtal),
and using the prescaler dividing by 256 the pic clock, So TMR0 interrupts
me (overflow) 8 times x second, a simple do-loop will do the rest and it's
quite precise and easy to do but I don't know if 8.1khz of pic speed will be
enough processing power for you.
