I've got Droid VNC Server up and running on my Nexus 7 but when I open a RealVNC viewer from a Windows 7 PC I get a scrambled display. I've tried all of the display settings on the VNC Server on the Nexus but none seem to work.
Has anyone managed to get this working on the Nexus?

I think this indicates a bug getting the screenshot, it's most likely the pixel buffer length is different from the display width.

I will send you a private message for another app that works.

As far as I know, only our app, VMLite VNC Server, supports Android 4.2 at this point, you can try it, but it's not free, available from google store.

Not working on the Nexus 7 - both server and VNC viewer client hang.

can you email? We have many users using Nexus 7 and works well, so I will work with you to make sure it works, might be some configuration issue.

+1 to this, I've tried just about every VNC server app out there and none have worked so far on the N7 running 4.2. Really would like the ability to have control from the PC. I always have my phone up on the desktop when using it. So much easier than having to look at it to answer messages.

Did you try our paid app, vmlite vnc server? People are using it on N7 with Android 4.2, works very well and we tested it on daily basis.

The need to hook up the tablet to a PC with a USB cable after every reboot to restart the server means this isn't a great solution even if it can be made to work on the Nexus 7.

I noticed it but as the above user stated. It's too inconvenient having to connect to a pc to start it. Defeats the whole point of having it. Can easily mirror the device when it's tethered to the PC. If just like standard VNC server to work with 4.2 as it used to.
