Hopefully, my post is not too late. I just recently bought the Seeed 1.0 TFT LCD touch screen for my Arduino Uno. I am using the Arduino Rev 1 (any version should work) and I was able to get it to work properly with my Arduino. Are you using the correct library version? The new Seeed 2.0 TFT LCD touch screen did have a new library but the Seeed website still retains the 1.0 version. You can get the libraries at this link:http://www.seeedstudio.com/wiki/File:TFT_Touch_Shield_libraries.zip
The example files included in the library should work on your screen. Let me know if this helps. Keep us updated on the status of your project. I am also planning some similar projects.
