Mesh MultiMonitor Support Bug in latest update RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    There was an update a couple days ago.  I am remoting into a box with two screens.  Before last update one of the screen would be detached.  Now each time I remote in I have to manually detach one of the screens.

  • Same here... I have a machine that has a Plasma HD TV and regular screen attached.   using the Nvidia 7 family GPU with dual DVI.   The TV is hooked to the DVI and a regular old LCD is hooked to the other DVI (with VGA converter).  Every now and then I lose the output to the HDTV/PLasma.  PLease note this is a desktop running MCE and being used as an HTPC...

  • I think that this is by design, but apparently this isn't the way you want it to work. I suggest filing a bug and/or suggestion on what you think it should be doing. I suspect that the desired solution would be an option in the configuration for each remote PC with multiple monitors.

  • The behavior before for me was only one monitor was attached when I remoted in.  Since the recent update to live mesh last week both monitors are attached when I remote in. 

    So are you telling me working multi monitor support was a bug that they fixed with this recent update. 

    On the livemesh blog multi monitor support is a listed feature, so I am guessing something broke in the recent update.

  • hi, i see that the latest upgrade solved a lot of problems i had. i would like ask a thing.
    i'm connecting from my laptop to a desktop computer with dual monitor: it's working, but the result is that the two display are stretched to be shown together in the laptop window, and the result is horrible.
    if connecting to a multimonitor desktop, may be shown just one screen at time, adding a button to switch among desktops? i use this feature in the logmein software and it's very useful.
    best regards,

  • There are quite a few reports of this happening lately due to the recent update. Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be any official word as to where this feature is going (i.e. whether this is expected behaviour or not).

    For now I would look into adding to the following suggestion: https://connect.microsoft.com/LiveMesh/feedback/ViewFeedback.aspx?FeedbackID=427126&wa=wsignin1.0 in order for your thoughts to be heard by the team.

  • Yes, I am telling you that the current behavior that you are encountering is due to the change in the way multi-monitor support is enabled. Since that isn't what you want it to do, file a bug or suggestion to make it work the way you desire, which would seem to me to be similar to the way it worked prior to the update.

  • I agree that this new way is the "bug" fix... I'm sure having both monitors available would be useful in some cases... but I've come to get use to, and love, the bug.... I want the bug back!  :)
