    It is not designed to be a Remote Desktop Viewer. Almost every player has some sort of feature for that "chromecast limited to google chrome" etc.etc. but there is probably a way to trick it with the DVR fuctionality. I dont suggest it but there is probably a way. Wrong tool for the job situation tho IMO
