Hello all


I had finally got access to a TFT Touch shield (not sure if I can mention the model here, but for now I will not), and I had program a nice menu interface, at it really works quite well

but as soon I try to add the ethernet.begin() it stops working and I can display any data on the TFT

can Etherthen coexists, with an TFT?, if so how?, is there anyone who had work with touch screens and Etherten.


so far from the other Arduino Ethernet board, the best one has been Etherten, if you would like to know my humble option, this little board rocks!!


please any advise will be wellcome if you can help me I will more than happpy to share the code

Thanks

I had an Adafruit 2.8" touch shield, or do you recommend other type of touch shield I can use, please let me know

I will need at leat one analog pin to connect something

Thanks

BTW

I had use your samples and tutorials to allow me improve my programs in Arduino, Thanks!!!

Thanks for the tip, I had a 4d systems screen, I had now an µLCD-28PT(GFX) and all the graphics will be done on the module and serial communications to the arduino, to free up all the arduino to do the Ethernet and other tasks

Thanks

Great, I had complete the graphics interface on the 4D systems FTF LCD screen, and really is a great product, I'm now focusing on the serial communication with the arduino, so far looks really easy, and the arduino etherten is not having so much load

Thanks
