Look at the attached image. Any idea on why this happens?

Thanks.

I left my computer on once, there were 5 spacedesk external displays connected, all from the same phone, but only the last one is useable. The attached image has only 2.

This has been happening since a while ago. Not sure what I changed.

I had to split this into three posts because apparently it's too long to be in a single post.

Again, thanks.

Hi @aliffan,
Thank you for reporting this issues.
Are you using spacedesk Android viewer app as client?
If yes, is there any USB connected to your phone (via OTG) while spacedesk is connected?
Or did you try to switch to split screen while spacedesk is connected?
Current spacedesk Android viewer app still has this known issue where the displays persist on primary machine even after client disconnection if there's a USB connected via OTG or if you try to switch to split screen.
We are currently reimplementing our Android viewer app with the new architecture.
Hopefully this will fix various bugs including yours.
We will let you know as soon as we have it on the PlayStore.

To remove this extra displays on your display settings, please try the following steps below:
1. Clear the display settings, just open the spacedesk SERVER window then click the menu button "..." and click the Clear All Display Settings.
2. Restart the spacedeskService, just run "services.msc" then find spacedeskService, right-click -> restart.
Looking forward to your feedback.

And by the way the character limit issue upon posting should be fixed by now.

Hey Lea,

Thanks for the reply.

I am using the spacedesk Android viewer app as client. The device is not connected to any USB OTGs. The 'duplication' happens randomly, even when the computer is idle.

I've cleared all display settings and restarted the service. Let's see if that has fixed this. I'll be waiting for the new version too.

Thanks again for replying.

Hi @spacedesklea,

Thank you for the follow-up. I've tried the new version of the driver (v0.9.25), and it looks like the problem is still there. But I think I know what's causing this problem.

I have an auto dark theme switcher on my Nexus 5X running Android 10. I thought it was reconnecting randomly, but I realized that it only happens on sunrise and sunset. So I tried manually switching dark theme on and off via quick settings, and the viewer reconnected as a new display.

In Android 10, when the dark theme is turned on or off, the current activity restarts to apply it, even if it doesn't support it. You might want to pass this on to the dev team and see if they can recreate the problem.

Thanks.

Thank you very much for the input.
We were able to reproduce the issue.
Hopefully, this will be fixed in the next driver version.
We will get back to you as soon as we have a new driver version on the web.
