Trying to ichat share screen between two Macs. One is an iMac. The other a tower. Both Intel. Both running Lion (10.7.5).

 

Screen sharing use to work. Then it suddenly just started showing a white screen. I can hear the other person. I can actually see their cursor. But I can't see anything on their screen.

 

Doesn't matter if they share their screen or if I request to share their screen.

 

White screen every time.

    Hi,

     

    Change the resolution on the Older OS.

    It is the only workaround we have found at the moment.

    Hi

     

    Most people seem to say change it to something the Newer computer can replicate.
