I have installed xrdp on my Raspberry Pi (which is connected to my TV) and a program called CoRD on my Mac that lets me connect to the RPi remotely and I am able to see the RPi desktop without any issue.
However, the TV screen doesn't show what I am doing. What I mean is that I can create files, change settings, etc (and all that works) but if I open a window on the desktop that CoRD shows on my Mac, that window is not shown on the TV, it just shows the desktop like if I had just logged in. If I create a text file and save it to the desktop, it will show there (the icon will appear when I save the file), but if I open that file the editor window will just show on CoRD and not on the TV.
Is this just how the remote desktop works or is there a way to duplicate what I see in CoRD on the TV display?
