On the 17xx manual, chapter [u]17.7.2 - SPI Status Register[/u], it's stated:

This bit (SPIF) is cleared by first reading this register, then accessing the SPI Data Register.

Accessing the SPI Data Register means I have to read the data every time after a transfer? Or starting another transfer counts as "Accessing the SPI Data Register"?
