iPad 2 via ARX and via Remote Sensor LCD

Recommended Posts

Hello all!

I have dug up my old iPad 2 and started playing with both ARX and the LCD functions of AIDA64.  I have three questions:

  1. What do I need to do to make ARX work with this iPad?  I tried a lot of different things, but I can't seem to make it work.  I tried to use both the Logitech Ghub and Gaming Software (either latest version) but no joy.  I can't seem to communicate with the iPad at all.  I know from reading the forums that ARX seems is a bit touchy, but I also know that some folks were able to make it work.  I would like to USE ARX since my understanding is it works in the full screen mode, and that it has some other advantages over iOS browser (of which I am not 100% clear on).
  2. What would be a good iOS browser to use on the iPad?  I am mostly interested in one that offers full-screen mode, and one that is stable.  I do not need bells and whistles on it at all, since I am planning on dedicating the iPad to this function and there is not need for fancy internet browsing.  So far I was able to identify one (called Full Screen Web Browser by Ankur Diora), but it is not exactly full-screen, and is seems to freeze every so often.
  3. What exactly are the advantages of using ARX over an iOS browser?

Whoever picks up these questions, thank you very much!

1) Have you installed the Arx Controll app from the AppStore?  If yes, then does it recognize your PC where you have the Logitech Gaming Software installed?

2) I don't think there's a perfect iOS web browser that supports full-screen mode.  Truth be told, we never tried to shop around for such a browser, so it's mostly feedbacks from AIDA64 customers.

3) The one major advantage of Arx over browsers is that it does support full-screen mode.

Fiery,

Thank you for your time!  Much appreciated!

  1. I installed the Arx Control app on my iPad from Apple's App Store, and yes, it communicates with the computer.  I can see my games and PC Stats from within the Arx Control software, but that's about it.
  2. I will continue the search.  I will let you know if I find one.
  3. Full-screen is exactly what I am after.

Thanks again, and CHEERS!

When the Arx app is running on your iPad and you enable Arx LCD in AIDA64, on the iPad nothing changes and nothing happens?  While AIDA64 says "init OK" ?

Right.  I can see Logitech's PC Stats and the games I have on my computer, but there is no AIDA Applet.  And, BTW, AIDA says "Arx Init OK (DLL Version 9.02.65)".

Task Manager shows the following Logitech processes running:

LGHUB (2 instances)

LGHUB Agent

LGHUB Updater

Logitech Gaming Framework

Logitech Surround Sound Service

We've checked it with an iPad 2 and it works fine for us.  In the Arx Control app (on the iPad) you need to swipe up on the bottom of the screen (where a tiny "up" arrow or upside-down "v" is shown) to get to the list of applets.  In that list you should be able to find AIDA64.

This is good to know.  I did all that, but no cigars.

Should I be using LGS or Logitech G HUB?  Currently I have both installed, and I can see processes labeled LGS and LGHUB running on the PC.

When you did you test, which one did you use?

I used Logitech Gaming Software.  Quite frankly, I never even tried G Hub.

Good God!  This Logitech "suite" of software is so incredibly poorly written, and I do not think it was QA'd at all.  I managed to make it work once.  Then it went away and decided not to come back.

Which version of LGS did you use?
