Viewing your desktop on the media:scape display screens:
The screen sharing default on a Macs is to display as an extended desktop. This means your display would have to be dragged to the top right corner of the Mac Powerbook screen to be displayed on the media:scape screen.

If you don’t like this, you must “clone” your Mac desktop so that your laptop display is being shared on the media scape screen.
