Hi hcet14,

Apologies for not seeing your Issue raised on github!

I am interested in maintaining my fork, but have been busy with other projects.

Let me look into your issue and see whether I can work out what is happening, might have to find one of the MH-Z19 sensors somewhere to try it.

Cheers,

Damien

But working on Serial is not that difficult either.

At the start, you have said it has two ports. It has just 1 Serial Port which has two pins, one is for sending and the second one is for receiving. You will find examples in the library and you just need to connect the wires with respective pins, if you are using software serial.

The second thing to check is the baud rate, both devices must be working on the same baud rate and that's it. You can make it work in a day.
