Hello everyone.

We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.

The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.

The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.

On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.

So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality. If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers. And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.

Cannot RDP connect to machine that has an Acer MR headset plugged in

I have an the Acer headset connected to my office computer. When I try connecting to that machine via RDP from home, RDP will connect but will not be responsive and will auto-disconnect after about 1 minute. If the headset is unplugged from the USB and HDMI ports, RDP connections work like a charm (no reboot required).

I use RDP from home often. Remembering to unplug the headset before I leave the office is a pain. Is there something else I could try?
