Topic: How to add a device not yet supported....

My latest project is using the Teensy 3.2, which has 3 serial ports. I want to use RX/TX1 (pins 0/1) for the serial monitor in the Arduino IDE, and RX/TX2 (pins 9/10) for my RemoteXY interface.

Since you have to specify which serial port to use in the RemoteXY configuration as "Serial1" (the project does not compile without that 1 on the end), I chose the Arduino Micro as the module, which correctly gives me Serial1 as REMOTEXY_SERIAL

Now I want to move the RemoteXY interface to Serial2, to free up Serial1 for the IDE monitor, but have no way of telling the RemoteXY initialisation which pins to use for the serial comms.

Now I know I'm going to have to hack the library a bit to do this, but genuinely don't know where to look.  Does anyone know if this is at all possible, and where to achieve it ?

If the Module Configuration had been a little more "flexible", allowing us to choose the TX and RX pins, you would be able to use pretty much any hard serial port on any board, despite not having your target board as a listed and supported board.

Everything works with smoke - if you let it out, things stop working....

"#define REMOTEXY_SERIAL Serial2" not working ?

Well I'm sort of getting there, but am now getting "Error: (61) Connection refused"

This is the sketch I am using to try and get this working, which works fine if I connect using Serial1
