We will be doing some long journeys and the compute sticks look like a great way to have some real PC processing power with light weight. I am particularly interested in getting access to Lightroom and Photoshop (I am a serious enthusiast photographer) but these don't offer full functionality on Android devices.
I see that Intel have a Remote Keyboard App for Android but this doesn't appear to display the screen from the Compute Stick. It seems to assume that the units will be plugged into a TV or other device via HDMI. I would like to use my Android Tablet for display, keyboard and mouse for the Compute Stick, connecting over WiFI from the tablet's "Tethering & WiFi Hotspot" functionality. Is this possible with software from Intel (my preferred option) or will I need to look to 3rd party software?
Thanks in Advance
if you have a pro version of windows running You need the purpose built Android RD Client (Remote Desktop Client) from Microsoft on the Google Play Store If you are on windows 8.1 Bing /home, it doen't natively support remote connections (only on Pro ) but there are other apps on the play store and also check this thread it points to various third party apps https://community.spiceworks.com/topic/819559-how-to-enable-rdp-in-windows-7-home-premium How to enable RDP in Windows 7 Home Premium? - Windows 7 - Spiceworks. or google how to enable remote desktop in windowsXXX
Thanks for responding but I'm not sure it gets me to a working solution:
I suggest you, check the system requirements for the applications that you are going run, before you buy any of the Intel Compute Stick, please keep in mind that Intel Compute Stick will need a TV or Monitor, to display the image.
Photoshop System Requirements
Lightroom System Requirements
Here you can search for any Intel® Compute Stick Specifications.
If there is anything else you need, please let me know.
Not really, although I'm still chipping away at it. As I said in my original post the Intel Compute Stick seems to assume that there will either be an HDMI screen or the internet to get access. I want to work stand alone without internet or a third party modem. I want to use my Android tablet as screen and keyboard for the compute stick. So far I haven't been able to work out how to do this with any party's software
According to what I understand, there is not Intel software to control the Intel® Compute Stick desktop remotely. To use the Intel® Remote Keyboard you would need to have the Compute Stick connected to a display.
If you get this connection successful, we would be glad know the procedure for this configuration.
Please let us know.
Of course I'll be happy to share it I can get it working the way I want, although I am still chuckling to myself to think that Intel would like to know how to do this. I guess I'm asking for something a little unexpected, even though it seems to make a great deal of sense to me given the devices extremely light weight.
I'll let you know how I go
