Live Mesh Display Problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • when using Live Mesh from my laptop to view my base computer desktop remotely, the aspect ratio of the display of my base computer desktop is very wrong.  That is, it is squished horizontally so that it occupies only 1/2 of the available space.  This is true whether I log on to the base computer directly from the live mesh pop up window or through a browser.  It is also true whether I am running with the information sidebar shown or full screen.  That is, when running full screen, the remote computer's desktop still occupies only 1/2 of the screen width (vertical is ok), and (thus) everything is "squished" horizontally.

    The reverse is not true  - that is, when viewing my laptop from the base computer, everything is displayed normally, with the appropriate aspect ratio.

    Just as a footnote, if both computers are on the same network, remote desktop works both ways with normal aspect ratios.
