Thank you for your message.

Please try enabling the Use legacy capture mode in the Settings for Host -> Other tab:

Also, please try referring to this KB article.

In addition, could you please clarify if there's any antivirus software installed on the Host machine?

Looking forward to your reply.

While I haven't had a chance to change my systems to legacy capture mode, I can confirm that I'm seeing the same issue though not exclusively on AMD graphics.  I believe, at least in my case, it happens when the monitor connected to the remote machine is turned off.  I don't mean the monitor has entered sleep mode.  I mean the power has been turned off to the monitor.  In this situation, I can connect but the display is black.  No interaction with the system will get it to start working.

Hello Martin,

Thank you for the details.

We will try to reproduce this behavior. Please let us know if you have a chance to try enabling the legacy capture mode and if the issue still persists.

Looking forward to your reply.
