Windows 8.1, 2_5_0_12_beta driver, Tab S 8.4 Worked first time no issues, and then needed to allow developer options and debug mode after it stopped working. Even on fast streaming and half the official device's resolution is a little bit laggy - can see that the display rendering is PC CPU bound. Question to the devs - would it be possible to set it up so it continues running/streaming in the foreground, but allows the device to lock based on it's normal device timeout in the background? That would allow the streamed output to be "locked" once the PC does, without running the risk that someone will hit the home button or app switcher and gain access to the device itself.

Most issuesd fixed now There were lots of compatibility issues with the windows client program required to use this app. Windows 8/8.1, Nvidia Optimus, and BSODs seem to have been all fixed. There is still a lot of lag even with a excellent connection to wifi and sometimes crashes on Android when exiting the app but overall worth playing $5 for an extra portable display.
