Re: Using a desktop PC for Pi development

You will get a better respone time with a KVM over Realvnc. I find the Realvnc create more overhead and the Raspberry Pi does not react as fast with Realvnc.

Re: VNC Viewer Display Screen and Minecraft

I am not using the Raspberry Pi 3 B+ for games. I am currently using it as a media server, file backup server and Alexa. When I access it via the VNC Viewer, it is rather slow via wifi. Would an ethernet connection provide a better solution? Is there another work around?
