Works exactly how I needed it to!I bought this to trick windows 10 into thinking I have another monitor because it thinks my laptops external graphics card is a monitor.Otherwise sometimes when I restart my computer the screen will stay black until I connect a monitor through HDMI then it will show on both and I can then disconnect it then it switches to the built in screen and I can finally use my computer.With this I don't need to do that anymore!
These would "trick" or emulate a monitor being connected to your session host so that using remote desktop software will also allow you to view the session at a much higher resolution.I'm glad to say that this little guy works perfectly after a reboot!
Problem is that when I disconnect my monitor and reboot, the remote display is at a very low resolution.
Now in the past, I had used a method of creating a dummy display that I forced resolution to, but if I ever had a problem and really did need to plug in a monitor, the real display was just blank.
Plugged in my Aorus 1070.
Aorus dead in 20 seconds as motherboard was burnt.
$700 gone thanks to this little thing.
I'm running Linux 14.04.1 with the AMD Catalyst graphics drivers and have it plugged into a AMD R9 290 card.
Worked for 3 weeks, now it doesn't.
