How to use Steam Link on Nvidia shield pro

 Share

Hey guys,

Im trying to run games on my new oled tv using steam link to play games like AC, Forza Horizon 5 etc.

But there is a lot of lag and basically unplayable. Everything is wired into the network and not on wifi.

Any suggestions?

After finally buying a Nvidia Shield Pro for over 300$ because Linus has often said it's the best for streaming device, I've found it's a piece of garbage for game streaming.

High pings, dropped packets etc.

 

All other devices on the LAN work fine.

I cannot wire the Shield with Ethernet, it's one floor up and a couple of walls away.

It's fast, and snappy in the interface, loading up streaming services like netflix and youtube is great.

Anything realtime like game streaming is a pretty awful experience and it was better on the Chromecast Ultra.

What's even more annoying, is running a speedtest on the shield through a mobile browser or an app, yields good results.

Pings in the 8 ms range to a close server, over 400Mbps.
