    pretty cool - i could use this a lot during the day!

    one question... i can't seem to get my mouse to be able to control it, so far it's strictly viewing what i'm doing on the phone (i can't watch your video at the moment)

    Nice, I wanted this function a while back but now I cannot possibly think of why I needed it so bad? Damn you young brain! Hmmm...

    "my wifes face is hilarious by the way" - uhhh what???

    towards the end of the video when i wipe to another screen, the way her face changes is funny to me for some reason

    i'm not sure why the mouse won't move anything...i had to restart my computer when i couldn't connect and then it started working when i first got it

    i don't know about the agent part...it worked for me right after i downloaded it.
    u need to have the android sdk installed and a recent verion of java, that's all i know. if that doesn't work try rebooting the computer and try again

    I was also getting hung up with the devices not found, in XP. I just went into adb and then ad shell to trigger the daemon process. Then exited the shell, and ran the program again. Worked perfectly. Kinda cool application, but on my computer things are painfully slow. Need to try it on my faster work pc.

    the application allows your to record, so recording your desktop seems a little redundant lol (i know you wanted to show of that the pc is operating it) but still

    i gotta show the whole deal, not just half of it. if i had a mac or linux i'd show that it runs off of mac or linux, plus i think i'm getting addicted to the screen recorder i got installed

    a little because that's all it took for me to get it working...i downloaded the program, double clicked it, then my phone came up on the screen..what other instructions would i need. when i skimmed through the screencast page it said u need android sdk installed which i have, and java 5 or higher, which i have 6, and i think usb debugging had to be installed, which i always have on ever since i rooted the phone

    Got mines working. Anyone know the command to put in the launcher for this? ;p

    EDIT: for those of you who are still having problems, make sure you have USB Debugging enabled. Mines wouldn't work until I enabled it.
