mercury transmit simply does not work...
Ok. So I opened premiere pro today and... lo and behold. Yet again... Mercury Transmit decides to not play along. I don't get an error message or anything. Not even a hint of any other trouble inside the program. It just does not... well... transmit anything to the screen I tell it to.
I have disabled the immersive damned environment (Why is this not disabled by default by the way?!!!), I have set it all up all according to what is supposed to work. What has usually worked. I enable mercury transmit for only one screen, number 1 as that one is the one that is connected to the physical screen in question. But it's like Premiere (and after effects too) just don't care to send anything there.
I have checked for updates both for my graphics card (nvidia gtx1080) and for the adobe programs in question (After Effects and Premiere Pro). I have checked that Sonic Studio is disabled as I know that one has had a history of not cooperating with Mercury Transmit. I have rebooted the system multiple times. I have rebuilt the adobe folder in my documents...
Please... I do not know what to do here. The functionality just sometimes decide to **** out on me and I am left none the wiser as to what it is that Transmit finds so offending. It just up and decides sometimes to not work sometimes.
At least give me an error message or something. Please!
And yes... the screen in question works just fine with windows 10 in general. It's just Transmit that refuses to acknowledging its existence or something...

This thread is a little old, but thought I'd share what worked for me anyways in case someone else, like me, googles this problem and finds this thread. I realized that as long as the program monitor is on the primary display, it seems to transmit fine. If I move the program monitor to a secondary or tertiary display, it doesn't transmit. So it seems like you should arrange your monitors according to where you want your program monitor to be. Hope this helps someone!
bihi is correct. My problem was solved by resizing the window on my main monitor. I didn't notice it was spilling off the edge (I have 4 monitors and Im on a Mac). I resized the window and mercury transit starting working again.
Hello. I really need back Mercury Transmit (For Dual Monitor_ Thanks!
Thank you @bihl!!!!

Same problem with my 3 monitor setup. i have 2 UHD monitors connected via display port cable and 1 full hd monitor connected via hdmi cable to my nvidia rtx 2070. for a short time, mercury transmit worked and i had a full screen preview on my full hd monitor. but since 2 days and i changed nothing on my system, my playback monitor which i selected in the payback settings is not working. everytime i enter the playback settings again, the checkbox for my selected preview monitor has automatically switched to another UHD monitor :(
Exactly the same here. We run 2 edit suites on imacs which we have 2 monitors attached to via a CalDigit box. The imac has been used as a full screen monitor and the 2 1920x1080 computer monitors for Premiere - we've done this for a few years with both Thunderbolt 2 and 3 machines. Since a recent PP update, we can no longer use the imac screen as a full screen display. On 1 machine we can select one of the other monitors for full screen (via Pref/Playback) but not on the other. Tried all combinations in pref and Project settings, but nothing helps. When the imac screen is selected for playback, it changes itself to another screen. This is something that has worked fine for a long time, but has now just stopped working despite no changes other than PP update, and across 3 different macs. Any help gratefully received!
Having the same issues here. Even tried the latest update to Premiere, and ran a clean install for the RTX Titan we're using here. Premiere refuses to serve any video at all, and even insists upon serving to a monitor that is disconnected.... seriously well beyond aggravating. I've tried wiping preferences and reinstalling premiere as well, no dice. Tried enabling and disabling all monitors in the "playback" pane, still no dice. It will only send to my 4th monitor (which is 3840x2160) instead of the desired reference monitors 2 and 3 (where 1 is the Edit/GUI monitor). Please update/fix or advise on how to debug/remedy if possible. Any one out there who has stumbled on a solution for this?

I run a 20 edit bay facility and in the latest version of Premiere we are having issues where Transmit will ignore the checked playback monitor and change it to a different one, resulting in no playback at all. We work with many surrounding production companies so unfortunately rolling back versions isn't an option for us.

I was having this problem as well (on mac). As it turns out, my premiere window was slightly off the screen and spilling over into one of my other two (not sure which one exactly). When i resized the window to fit the screen, my full screen playback started working again. Hope this helps.
