Hi guys, I searched for "RTC" and "PSEL" and other terms but I couldn't find a resolution to my issue...

I am trying to get the RTC to count at a rate of 16384 ticks per second (PSEL = 0) using a 32KHz crystal and get it to interrupt when it reaches a VAL of 16384. What's strange is that I am only seeing SD card reads (LED indicator) every 2 seconds which would mean the RTC is either working with PSEL = 1 or I'm missing something else.

I'm using a rev. F (non "ES") chip and software framework 1.3.0, why would the RTC act as if it were counting at half the max rate?

Thanks for any help,
Anders
