That's what I meant. It works as normal, but I thought the bug was the screen turning off, even if you had the custom text, or custom HTML selected.

Thanks! Your answer resolves the issue. :)

Screen Blank not showing custom URL windows 10

host Windows 10 - Home - Anniversary update - Host 6.5.0.8
viewer Windows 10 - Home - Anniversary update - Viewer 6.5.0.8

When messing with the host properties, I found that there is a way to display custom text, or URLs when the host screen blank feature is turned on. Unfortunately, this feature does not seem to work properly with Windows 10. The only thing the host user sees when screen blanking is turned on is that the physical monitor has been turned off (shows no signal). This happens, even if custom text, or a custom URL is defined to be displayed.

If screen blanking is turned off, the host user sees the screen as normal. I'm guessing this is a bug in the monitor lock driver for windows 10, but I could be wrong. Is there something I'm doing wrong?
