Just bought Mirror Display to "broadcast" my new Macbook Pro (Yosemite) onto a 2008 iMac (Yosemite). Browser could not link to the URL via Ethernet. Tried again on wifi with a fairly low signal. Still no joy. Put a TP-Link next to both computers and success. Or so I thought. I closed the Mirror Display dialogue box. Nothing happened on the iMac. Reloaded and tried again. This time, half the screen on the iMac disappeared when I closed the dialogue box. Tried to refresh several times during the whole process but the browser said the URL was not available on each occasion. I was about to write a scathing review on the App Store but thought I'd give you a chance to explain what's going on.
1. Mirror Display is a server App, if you close the Mirror Display window, the server would stop running, that's why the browser on your iMac said the URL was not available anymore. You need to keep Mirror Display running. 2. Whatever the way of connection you've made(Ethernet or WiFi), you can test the connection using ping command to see whether your 2 Mac can touch each other. Yosemite is not perfect yet, especially about networks.

Ah ... that would explain it. Are there any instructions for the free version, so I could at least see if I get along with some of the basic tools? I hate blindly pushing buttons ... such a phenomenal time waster.
Sorry, no detailed instructions. We always try to make the app simple enough to make the long instructions not necessary. Every vector designer can get started with iVinci if they had used other vector design software before.

The instructions that I have found so far (silent videos on youtube) do not give me enough information to even barely get started with the free app. Even simply bending text to a path has been beyond my ability to figure out and accomplish. So i find very little, to no incentive to move up to a paid for app. Better instructions on how to use the tools would be a huge plus from my perspective.
Thanks for your feedback. When you update the iOS, Apple may change some hardware level settings.

Great App. It seems that is one of the RTA and SPL analyzer that keep working after the iOS 8 update. I would like to know if I can use an external microphone for iPad, which one would you recommend and if an specific software calibration is needed.
Yes, you can use an external microphone. Use a stable sound source to calibrate to make the result close with internal microphone.

Why your App don't have a LEQ output. The SPL readings are extremely low respect to other SML Apps for iOS, around - 24 to -30 dB with the same sound source, even using an Apple in-ear headset with an external mike. What is the correction value I shoud use in the extra Power Calibration input in my iPad III with iOS8 and how can I calibrate an external mike using as reference such an unreliable SPL values obtained with the internal mike, as you claim?

Is there an uninstaller for the Mac VT Display host?
vtDisplayDriver.PhyarStudio.kext is causing error messages even though I can't see it in the extensions folder.

Our kext file is in /System/Library If you can't see it, maybe it is already been removed, just restart your Mac. Only 2 files need to remove to uninstall vtDisplay, the kext file mentioned above, and vtDisplay.app in Application folder.

Hi there - I see that I can use mirror display to share my mac screen with other devices but what can I use to share my iphone5 screen with my mac book? I am a Phantom vision camera pilot and I was hoping I could show my screen whilst in flight to somebody watching live on my macbook. Thanks.
