Hi all

I apologise if this has been asked before but my search-fu sux. I want to use my surface pro to run my game but have my TV for player view. Is there any tutorials or a guide to help me have realm works show player view on TV. I can connect, but I am unsure as to whether I need to extend, duplicate etc and are there any settings in RW that i need to change.

Thanks in advance

Connect your second monitor.
Extend the desktop to it.
Start Realm Works and open your realm.
Go to Player View.
Select your new monitor for the Player View using the dropdown in the upper-right corner.
When you Show Player View, it should now be on the new monitor.

I think the Surface Pro's don't have a full-size HDMI port, so you might have to buy a mini display port to HDMI cable in order to connect your "2nd monitor".

If you don't want cabling it depends on if you have a smart tv or if you need a roku/chromecast to screen mirror to an older tv. To do these options you have to connect to a wireless display and extend your desktop - it's not very stable wirelessly though...
