Hi, I was using the RS1307 rtc module in the Arduino IDE, I uploaded the example that fetches the time and date from the host computer and it set the time for the DS1307. I ran the program on my UNO and all went well.

My problem is that when ever I use the IDE monitor with any of my Arduinos or ESP32s (without the RTC module)I get this:

 The time and date shows up in the monitor, even though I am not using a RTC module. I have closed and restarted the IDE a number of times but the date & time persists. 

My question is how do I get rid of this routine which seems to be running in the back ground of the IDE.  It interferes with data being sent to the monitor by the Arduino / esp32 modules?

Thanks, Dan

Just turn off timestamps (the middle icon that looks like a clock) BUT I doubt they interfere with anything, depending on your OS you could have hundreds of background tasks.

It's there to allow primitive timing estimates.

Is there an option in the Arduino IDE to enable/disable timestamps in the serial monitor?

@yurkshirelad Yep, I already told him

Sorry @zander, I missed that in your reply for some reason.

@yurkshirelad No problem Mike, it's all about timing.

@zander 

Thanks for the help, I had no idea that button was there. You were right the time stamp had nothing to do with the data being sent to the monitor. It appears to be a totally separate issue.

Thanks again, Dan

@danc No problem. It's always a good idea to check out all the little widgets and icons on a UI/IDE so you know what is available. Also, I think they change subtly when running a sketch as opposed to editing and verifying so check that out too.
