    Remote Desktop Flickering


    When I start a remote desktop connection it all works fine. After a random period of time the desktop icons, taskbar icons disappear, can not access metro, shortcuts do not work etc.. The whole screen starts flickering, desktop image as well.

    A restart and reconnect fixes the problem for a while then it happens again and again.

    I tried the connection from a macbook, another win 8 laptop, and iphone, all with the same result.

    Video link of the flickering.

    That is a refresh rate issue on the Macbook. What happens when you use Teamviewer on both machines? Do you get the same behavior with that software also?

    I stopped using RDC, after too many holes that were not being fixed. Also I needed a better cross platform type utility, which Teamviewer meets that criteria.
