I want to connect an Android TV box to my laptop which is running Fedora 26. I want to use the laptop as display for the box. How can I do that? Currently, when I connect the device via VGA port (using an HDMI to VGA connector), the laptop (Acer E5-773) thinks that it is a second monitor. It does not know it is supposed to be an input. Is there a way I can configure the laptop display to act as display for the the TV box or both the box and the system display (splitting the display area or something?!)?
The Android device is X96, running Android 6. It has a couple of USB ports, and also IR, AV, HDMI, DC, and OPTICAL ports.
