    I want to connect my Surface Pro to my desktop pc running windows 8.1, which is connected to my tv. Is there an app that would allow me to remote in so i can scroll on my Surface and see it live on my TV? I've used Teamviewer and it works but as soon as you close out a pop up appears asking to buy it. Remote desktop basically switches the monitor to my surface and the lock screen appears on my tv. Ideally I want Smartglass for windows 8 but wanted to know if anyone had any luck with another app.

    Thanks

    Look into PCRemote it is in the Store, you run a small service on the desktop and it does it exactly what you want. Its like Xbox SmartGlass for your desktop.
