Thanks for the reply

I notice my photo did not go through due to the 512kb image limit
I have reduced the image quality further so you can have an idea of my setup.

So, as per the second screenshot, you can see my screen layout

Screen 1 is physically attached to my spacedesk server PC

Screen 2 and 5 are android devices with hdmi output running spacedesk viewer for android, these work no problem, except they do not go to sleep when the server PC does, but that is only minor annoyance (it does say “power save mode” but the screen does not sleep)

Screen 3 and 4 are both connected to another windows PC, they are screen 1 and 2 on that PC.

So I have two instances of spacedesk viewer running on that PC.
This might be the reason why they come out of fullscreen occasionnally ?

When I have to restart my entire system, I have to start two copies of spacedesk viewer, that is the problem.

Are there command line parameters for starting spacedeskviewer ?
The problem is that when I start two copies of spacedeskviewer, they both start on the same (screen 1) and I have to move them manually.

I would like a command line parameter when I can say client id {AAAAA-BBBBBBBB} start fullscreen on screen 1 and cliend id {CCCCCCCCC-DDDDDDDDD} start on screen 2

Also please note that the client come out of fullscreen only on the windows PC running spacedeskviewer, this does not happen on the android devices.

And it is not only going to sleep (which I do not want to disable, I want everything to go to sleep when I am not using it) that causes the spacedesk client to come out of fullscreen but changes in resolution of Screen 1 on the spacedesk server (for instance when an application runs in fullscreen on screen 1, it will switch through other resolution and cause all the screens to flash a little, this is when the out of fullscreen happens)

This is only a little annoying, because I need to keep an extra mouse handy at all times for the viewer PC.

Ideally I would have 4 android devices running the four screens but they are currently out of stock 🙁
Other than that pretty happy with everything to do with spacedesk

I do have one other recommendation to make, currently spacedesk client only accept a IP address, but I would like to use a hostname my PC is called hadron.lan, its IP address changes occasionally but it is always reachable by the hostname “hadron.lan” so access via hostname instead of IP address would be more rliable
