Phil,

Sorry for being dumb but this means at the internal clock rate, no
prescaler. i.e. timer1 increments every 4th clock cycle?  Yes?

Doh! I must have missed that. I didn't know you could set where the overflow
would occur, I've been assuming it was always on 255->256 count! Hows that
done then?

So run a 16bit counter/storage to get so decent resolution.

I've included my PIC code in another reply to this posting so maybe you can
point out some NOVICE mistakes! Can anyone point me to some example code?

Excellent help from the list by the way, expecially the maths stuff in the
archives :-)
