    • This program enables the use of a Playstation Portable as an additional monitor in Windows.
      You can also remotely send keyboard and mouse commands to the PC.
      The newest version implements sound streaming, too.

      - new audio recording mode for Vista / Windows 7 which uses software loopback, no longer requiring a "Stereomix" or "What you hear" device

      - audio will stutter if data cannot be transmitted fast enough either because of the network conditions or low PC specs
      - some applications issue drawing commands without apparent screen changes, in that case there is no CPU load reduction available when using the PSPdisp display driver
