I just assumed it was a bug with the Genymotion system image or something - but clearly, it's not. I'll have to do some testing with some older SS versions and see if I can track down what's causing this. I did do some major reorganization and cleanup of the code with the latest version (2.4) that would have also affected the Tasker plugins.

EDIT: I just identified what was causing this issue and am pushing an update now

That did the trick. Thanks!

Do you have any older versions available for download, by chance? I updated to the latest on Google Play, and I'm having some difficulty with the app.

I have a Nexus 9 and it doesn't seem to want to allow landscape mode once Second Screen's profile is enabled. It's forcing portrait mode no matter which option in Profiles I choose. It seems to change the system setting to lock in portrait, but even after the profile's been enabled, if I change it to landscape myself, it doesn't display properly and is pretty much is only functional in portrait orientation.

I've got a Galaxy Note 4 with Lollipop on it and when using second screen the brightness doesn't turn all the way to zero.

I noticed that you mention this in your description. This seems to be the way that the default brightness setting in android works as if you lower that all the way down it is still fairly bright. Thing is in Lux for example it has Sub Zero brightness on it's slider, but when applying that while connected over MHL, once you get below zero the brightness on the secondary screen also starts to decrease (above 0 it doesn't have any effect on the secondary screen you are connected to).

Thing is that even at say -50 brightness while the phone goes pretty dark, the image is still more than visible on the secondary screen as it's not a 1:1 ratio of brightness it seems. Would it be possible to have some sub zero settings on SecondScreen as having the phone on -50 is a lot better than on 0 for example and while not fully black at least provides something darker while still being visible on the secondary screen?
