    Playing a bit more tonight, and posting using Continuum.
    the TV at home has a Media Center computer, and for the 10ft display i use a little wireless keyboard mouse combo thing. I plugged its wireless dongle into the 950 and voila! a keyboard and mouse combo. works 100%, even most of the media keys.

    cool, how can i push it? PLEX :)
    so the app isn't Continuum enabled, but edge web app?

    unfortunatly, it doesnt scale. i blame the phone for not sending the resolution of the secondary display to edge and the web app. But the video played perfectly. it was streaming from my mediacenter, to the plex server, to the phone, projected through Continuum. impressive.

    I didn't look, but I will later, I bet that single video lit up the network here at home a bit. 1080 hd media center file > recoded by plex stream to phone > stream to the Roku.

    it never occurred to me to stream video through edge.... since miracast video isn't the greatest, this may be a GREAT option as the videos I streamed in movies & tv was amazing via wireless (and MUCH better than straight miracast)

    hmmm.... i'll be back in 15 years after I stream all the things I can find in edge :)

    I've been avoiding M&TV in WM10, is there a way to specify a unc path to a movies directory?
    I found myself trying to do winkey + R in continuum to browse for an app or directory several times. The experience is so close to desktop that it is a bit vertigo inducing. I wanted a explore.exe file experience, it's grounding and comforting, but the metroish file manager app is underwhelming.

    Tested with Bluetooth MS foldable universal keyboard, Bluetooth sculpt mouse and MS wireless display adapter. Using all core apps worked very well and I didn't encounter bad lag.

    I tried it with Xbox One. Works good but I found it to be a little laggy on input. It was the same on a TV also. Might just be my network at home.
    How did you get it to work? My mom's Lumia 950 is having trouble connecting to the Xbox One.

    miracast (called wireless display on the xbox one) is still beta and requires you to be a preview member to get it.

    Have you tried TeamViewer? It is a remote desktop app. Curious to see how it works with continuum.

    woa, that's the first 3rd party app that actually works (I've found). Indeed TeamViewer works and works well it seems. Way more clunky that good old fashioned built in RDP, but it works till then.

    It remotes into your hosts, but requires software. Doesn't look like it can use regular RDP protocols.
