Serial1 not visible

asked Aug 1 in Arduino by nwbi
I'm using an Arduino Mega. When I use "Serial.write" etc with the Arduino's IDE serial monitor everything is working fine.

However when I try to read or send data via "Serial1", I get nothing.  Why is this?

The only serial port connected to the USB that the serial monitor can read from is Serial.

Serial1, Serial2, and Serial3 are all logic level serial and will not show up on the Arduino serial monitor.

If you want to see the output from these on your computer,it will require extra hardware. Or you can write the code to print all the data coming from other serials to the primary Serial port.
