The Surface RT docking station is not designed to take video in for onward transmission.
Also, the Surface RT is a tablet with no Video input that I know of

I had an RT.

Nope. RT is quite a different beast. About all you can try is to see if any VNC (see google) is available or Remote Desktop.

Sorry, my RT experience was so bad I gifted the unit away.
