I have a question about remote desktop...
Long story short, I'm a real estate broker and my office is in a historic 2 story building. I have a tv in the window downstairs to show our listings. My office is on the top floor, the tv obviously is downstairs.
I've connected a desktop to the tv downstairs and have successfully controlled it via remote desktop from my upstairs office.

My question is- is there any way I can open powerpoint on the downstairs computer from the upstairs computer and have it show the powerpoint in real time on the tv downstairs ? I tried this, but when I log into the downstairs comp from the comp upstairs via remote desktop, it logs the computer downstairs out and all that shows on the tv is the welcome screen.

Does this make any sense? I can explain further if needed. I'm hoping theres a simple solution for this..
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!

yes, that is by design. I would suggest that tight vnc would be a better solution
