Wireless Monitor Option

Hello Everyone,

I no longer have an ONYX, but I now have a hacked DPT-RP1 so I was forced to find an alternative to the HDMI monitor input. I had previously used VNCViewer but the delay was too severe. Then I discovered 'Spacedesk'

Spacedesk essentially turns any android tablet into a wireless monitor WITH touch. (similar to iDisplay and Splashtop I believe) Mirror or extended desktop are both options. MUCH faster than the VNC method, and possibly as fast, if not faster, than the HDMI input on the Boox Max 2.

Spacedesk is also free and runs flawlessly on my Dpt-RP1, I'm sure it would also run smoothly on most Boox models. Enjoy!

I spent more than 2 hours trying to get it up and running and I gave up. Not a problem with the app itself but with the networking. I don't have WiFi router. The drivers install fine.

When downloading the apk I spot an app called XDisplay from Splashtop. Connection via usb was like a charm. Touch was working fine. The image quality was okeyish but I wouldn't recommend it. When using it as a primary sole touch display I discovered bugs with the screen "recording" on the system side where something was displayed on a normal display but was not streamed to the app.

EDIT:
I should rather say that I don't have WLAN ;-) I cannot administer the WiFi router installed by my network operator. Unfortunately it gives me isolated WiFi access, that is, no LAN between home devices.
