    so last night I was showing my GF how continuum works on her new phone and decided to play around with it on MY PHONE but continuum seems to be broken on my phone! it was working before so I don't know which update broke it as I haven't used it for the longest time, but I did try to update to insiders *which is working so far with no troubles) latest ring and still a no go! anyone have any suggestions? and forget about hard recovery! Ill just wait for it to fix itself with maybe an update... but I cant even connect using the drop down menu or in the display settings... nothing works.

    I used Continuum flawlessly a few weeks ago when I went out of town and was able to turn my hotel HDTV into a Win 10 desktop experience.

    Then the last time I tried to show the feature to someone the dang thing was freaking out like crazy.

    I haven't tried it lately to see if it is fixed. I hope so.

    It's a bummer how we get new features. Then they break. Then they fix. Then they break.
    Rinse and repeat. LOL

    I'm only popping in to say that my unit is not having issues. As a matter of fact, once they finally updated Gadgets last month, it is working more smoothly than I can remember.

    But, as is the Microsoft mantra; "Have you rebooted?"

    Having the same issue since a couple of builds back on fast ring. Really sad about this, it was nice to be able to connect to my PC in the office.

    UPDATE: so I updated to the latest insider preview (hoping it would fix it) and it STILL didn't fix continuum! I don't know why I find this so frustrating as I never use continuum, but I still would like to be able to use it if/when I want to. Does no one know how/what I can do to get this to work? c'mon where are the Lumia geniuses? is there a background app that needs to be running? like gadgets or something else? I really don't wanna hard reset the device to get this working properly...

    Oh yeah, that's important info I missed. Non-insider current for me too.

    well it looks like I will have to live with a broken continuum as 1) I don't use it, but still would like it to work if/when I ever want to, and 2) my phone is working to well in all the other aspects.... and 3) I don't want to lose all my other stuff and go through the hassles of taking 2 hours to set it up... I was wondering if the 950xl can restore itself like on the computer where it just refreshes/restores critical components but not the whole phone... know what I mean?

    I will test one more fast ring build and if it still not working, I will do a hard reset and no restore to see if it works.

    I wouldn't bother testing another fast ring update, I already did that and it was a no go... only way to get it back is with a hard reset...sadly

    This is a strange thing that it does not work connecting to the PC but I bought a cheap USB-C to HDMI/USB3/USB-C adapter and that works perfectly when connected to my TV.
    It remains to be seen if I have the time to do a hard reset, but if I do I will let you know if it solves this.
