I don't own the controller but I tried it and felt unimpressed. Not just because of the touch pad thingy but overall it does not feel 50 bucks to me.

Finally got my powerline to ethernet adapter (said wth and went with Netgear Powerline 1200). It works flawlessly now.

Also I had no problem either using the desktop/browser or watching movies with mpc-hc (I use my smartphone with unified remote app for inputs, didn't try the controller for this). Only downside with the movies is that it appears the desktop framerate locks at 19.9, I need to find a way to increase it to 24 fps because madVR video codec on my tv is just awesome.

edit: small tip: if you have a second ethernet port in your motherboard use that one instead of the router since most routers (at least low-mid end ones) need to take a small break (<1s) once in a while and you will notice it.

Has anybody tried streaming the new Gears of War Ultimate Edition as purchased from the windows store?

I thought I had a fool proof method but it didn't go so well (it involved a shortcut and the mklink command). So I tried the normal shortcut method: technically it was streaming but I couldn't get the [360] gamepad to be anything other than an emulated keyboard/mouse. So I played it on my computer directly. It wasn't that bad since my gaming headphones are so nice. Also, I'm not sure I really like that game. Cover mechanics are still nice and I some what enjoyed the bonus stuff not included with the original version, unpolished though they were.

Now that I finished the game I'm not really motivated to try and figure it out. I have a couple more ideas on how I might get it to work. I mean if anybody is interested/cares.

All,

I just moved into a small house and have been kicking around a lot of different ideas for a gaming PC solution.

Currently rocking a Caselabs M8. I was looking to get rid of it and go to the new bullet series or a rackmount pc case.

However, I just realaized that the detached garage has a conduit to the main house already and I can just move my computer to the garage and use the steam link. This would be awesome because I could then game in multiple rooms of the house at anytime and maybe even be able to set up VR in the garage.

What is everyone's experience with the latency? I am not a competitive gamer but I do enjoy some online gaming like Rocket League, TF2, and I am considering Overwatch.

A lot of my other gaming is single player and local coop is of interest to me as well.

I would also be interested in setting something up like what Linus Tech Tips did with multiple gamers on one right in the future so I think this may be a good setup with minimal clutter.

any feedback would be appreciated.

Got a Steam Link about two weeks ago during the Steam sale but controller was backordered. Controller arrived today and spent a little bit of time testing it out. Works great with my sig rig over gigabit LAN. No noticeable lag when testing with Euro Truck Sim 2, GRID, and GRID 2.

The controller will definitely take some getting used to, but I'm liking it so far. It will be nice to finally have the opportunity to chill out on the couch for some game time.

glad to hear you are liking it.

I enjoy my controller and I think most people's problem is that you don't really hold it like you do your standard console controller.

It is more of a rest in your lap kind of device.

I agree, the controller deserves much more credit for the ingenuity and capability to adapt to nearly every genre.

Absolutely. The amount of functionality and buttons it has is crazy. With on the ability to create/download community controller templates, I see a lot more couch time in my future.

After a few days of use, my one and only issue with it is when my thumb rests on the right touchpad, the camera can sometimes jump and move. Not a deal breaker, but just thought it was worth mentioning. smile.gif

I run into the same issue but it's easily dealt with. The community's template contribution is amazing. It has changed the way I game.

My biggest complaint accessing community controllers for non steam games.

I got Wither 3 when I bought a 970 and had to download through GOG and so the controller setup is only what I can do with it and I don't have tons of time to game so I have yet to figure out a good layout.

Valve could address this by making an ability to "link" the game to the steam controller library or something. I think it will only be a matter of time before they get there.

I have been making a configure for Shank and Shank 2 that I am pretty happy with but I'm trying to still make improvements.
