Hello everyone - my first port, so go easy on me!
I am using a FT800B board connected to a Arduino Mega2560. Stacked on the Mega is a Data Logger Shield. After some CS pin adjustments, and jumper wires from the Data Logger shields SPI pins to the Mega2560 SPI pins, everything appears to be working with the FT800 Library, or at least the vast majority of the example code compiles and runs fine. Audio works as expected via the FT800B built in speaker.
I would much rather use the GD2 library with the FT800B as I prefer its command structure, and find it much easier to utilize. I have made only CS pin changes to the GD2 code simply so it uses the same pins as the FTDI code. Display CS is pin #8, SD CS is pin # 9. Everything except audio is working with the GD2 library. The 'Self Test' sketch fails with an "Audio Fail" message, and even though most of the audio enabled example sketches (such as Frogger) run ok, there is no audio. Any SD data required is working fine being loaded from the SD card on the Data Logger shield. I have yet to test if the Logger Shield RTC is working with the GD2 library, since the lack of audio is a greater concern.
Any suggestions? Is the FT800B audio even compatible with the GD2 library?
