    Hi jason2017,

    Thank you for your post.

    If you start X from a CUI TeamViewer is not able to grab the screen. That's why you're having this issue.

    We recommend if you like to use the GUI to start your system the system with it. Switching from CUI to GUI, vice-versa is not supported by TeamViewer.

    Any other questions let me us know.

    Best regards,
