Re: Remote desktop software weird behaviour

Ross Salinger <rgsalinger@...>

I don't know what an "eagle" is but I have only tested it with TV . With Windows RD you don't need it. I use it on two systems right now. I keep my planetarium on one screen with the guide graph at the bottom and the rest of the "stuff" on the other screen. Oddly I cannot get it to work on a "shuttle" PC that I use with the AP1600 that I run for a bunch of people. Can't figure out why.

Thanks! I didn’t know such things existed. My Eagle has 2 HDMI ports, I’m thinking this will let me mirror the 2 screens on the Eagle to the 2 screens on my inside PC?

Honestly, if you own an AP mount then spending 100 bucks on software really cannot break the bank :).

Ross, what do you mean by dummy video plugs?

Windows remote desktop is only good on a LAN. On a LAN it's by far the better product. I use dummy video plugs in my (3) remote computers so that I can use dual screens when imaging. Much easier on my aging eyes to not have to peer at small stuff on a screen.

I also have the same problem, they seem to be new TV policies (or malfunctioning algorithm).

In any case I have been testing RealVNC with good results. I have also heard very good reviews about Google Chrome Remote Desktop. Both for free.
