New smart phone direction Android or IOS
#41
This app does play really well with CQC. I am using it to RDP into my Win XP master server. The only thing I haven't figured out yet is how to automatically launch the IV at the start of the RDP session.

[Edit] I meant to further describe the issue as occurring when I am connecting to an existing RDP session with the same user ID.

I just did the Windows hack to support multiple RDP sessions, and setup a dedicated user for my remote CQC access. Then on that users desktop setup the CQC shortcut, with kiosk mode, etc under startup. That way I can log in as one user if I want to do typical desktop stuff, and that doesn't interfere with my remote user session (and vice versa).

I already have the system hacked to allow multiple sessions so it wasn't an issue of a "work" session getting closed for a "CQC" session. What wasn't working was the initial start up of the IV from the "Program" setting in Remote RDP. I discovered that it was because I quoted the entry in the "Folder" setting. By having the IV specified in this fashion has the advantage (to me at least) that I can have an exit in the templates and that causes the RDP session to end.

Now if I could only have a session started automatically when Remote RDP was opened.

Sorry, I haven't tried that feature. I think that was a recent addition.

For the non-Kindle Android tablets, the ability to start a particular session is there -- Long press on a connection profile and the option to create a shortcut on the home screen is one of the options. On the Kindle, the Amazon home screen replacement doesn't show the shortcut. The developer, Walter, has indicated that he'll add support for 3rd party home screen replacements in a future version.

So after less then a week's experience I am using the Remote RDP application as my primary access to CQC from my Kindle. The only slight negative is that the "fly in" of the media browser and inertial scrolls are a bit choppy. On the plus side I can see HTML pages (like radar, security cams, etc), the screen drawing appears to be faster, and I can get audio from the interface.

In Android V4.4 there is a preview of of ART, the replacement for the Dalvik VM. It is said to be at least 2x faster so that should help. I am running on a first generation Kindle so the processor/graphics is also below today's par.

So what are others seeing/thinking about this type of remote solution? My thought is that we move the V5.0 development roadmap away from a RIVA V2 and focus on more functionality in the autogeneration, consolidation of the various configuration tools, and make it easier to build a library of partial solution (IE, instead of making a single template pack, bundle these 5 template together, call it the 'home theater solution', and things like that).

I never did find a decent seamless RDP client for IOS like this Android one. So RIVA is still the best solution for IOS, IMHO.

I still think it would be a boon to CQC to have access to the full IV feature set on all platforms.

If it were doable to take such an approach, it would not be something to be lightly dismissed. It's going to be a huge amount of work to create a new RIVA system, and it's work that won't be going into other things. So you have to measure it relative to the many other things that could be done with that same time/effort expenditure.

I can make the scrolling/dragging more efficient in the filled background scenario, where I don't have to re-composite the content and re-blit the entire contents for every move. That, plus possibly more modern hardware than Mark has, might make a lot of difference.

What are other people's experiences with this sort of setup and the performance of the dragging/scrolling?
