Kinda confused here. Too bad there isn't more documentation
Latest version of Marlin
Updated firmware on TFT 2.8
Set baudrate yada yada yada smiling smiley
I don't have anything hooked up to board, but how do I know it is communicating?
Need to define something in Marlin?

Matched baud rate and SERIAL_PORT 0 in configuration.h is all you need

The MKS TfT 2.8 not a screen, it is a simple controller with touch screen.
It is connected to rx0/tx0 (ie serial 0) of the reprap controller.

When you select something it just sends the related gcode over serial.
