What device & client gives best results?
From reading some posts, not all Shadow clients are created equal?Do any of them support 4k, HDR and surround sound?If so, for that client, what silent device would be capable of handling the 4k video stream without issue and also output HDR? And has support for wireless gaming keyboard and mouse?I have an Apple TV 4k, but don’t think I can use a keyboard and mouse with it?If building my own PC, does anyone know what kind of system offers a silent GPU with 4k HDR support? And would I have to look for something special to have surround out, or will that be on every motherboard?Alternatively, if the Mac client is good, what is an Apple Mac Mini capable of in terms of output?Finally, is anything in HDMI 2.1 spec relevant to Shadow, or is it just a simple constant frame rate (60Hz?) video stream that HDMI 2.0a devices can handle?
Access to camera on iPad Pro
I just subscribed to Shadow PC and I am loving it so far. The connection quality is great and finally I can use my iPad Pro like „It’s a PC“ 😀 I know that via RDP its possible to also use the iPad‘s camera for Zoom and Microsoft Teams - would it be possible to also include this feature in Shadow PC? Then it would become my one and only machine, both for gaming and productivity tasks
How I fixed Error R-108 on andriod stopping me from using shadow
After I got a warning about my data usage from T-Mobile my shadow app randomly stopped working on my pixel 2. It worked completely fine and I was able to stream No Mans Sky at Ultra detail with little to no lag. And I was exclusively using my unlimited cellular data no wifi. THE WORKAROUND:If you can connect to wifi and the app launches then it might be your provider blocking ya. So we need a simple VPN Proxy to stop this from happening. I downloaded Tomato VPN, it's free, no credit cards or purchases was needed for me to use it. It gives you an hour and a half of free VPN and you can add additional time by watching an ad. (Which if you do repeatedly you'll have hours upon hours of connection.) After downloading and running the app, you can choose were you want to be connected too. If I where you I would look at your shadow PC account and find out which location your shadow is located and match it to the VPN. (Ex. My shadow is in Chicago so my VPN is also set to Chicago) After do

Mouse Scrollwheel Not Working on iPad OS 15
Describe the bug (required) Upon upgrade to iPad OS 15, the scrollwheel of the Logitech bluetooth mouse connected to the iPad (12.9” Pro) does not work. It had worked prior to iPad OS 15. It also works on the MacOS client. The Windows Shadow system does not register the scrollwheel scroll input however it does recognize the click as Mouse 3. The scrollwheel is established as working in the iPad OS itself. In addition, since this update, Mouse 4 does not register being held down, only a single click. The scrollwheel should be supported and it’s inputs registered in the default behaviors of the Windows system, and should react appropriately in-game (tested it in Guild Wars 2). The mouse buttons 4-5 should recognize being held down until released. Steps to reproduce the bug (required) I tried the same mouse on the MacOS system and it registered the clicks in the desktop environment. I restarted shadow, the mouse and the iPad OS. The bug occurs 100% of the time on iPad OS/iOS 15
Add Docker Support to Shadow
I don’t need to explain Docker and its benefits, those at Shadow reading this already understand the value of Docker virtualization.I have had Shadow for over a year, and don’t have any major complaints. The recent price increase has put me in position to look at other options. I am at a cross roads where am considering replacing Shadow with a new high-end PC that can do Docker (and other things) that Shadow does not currently support. I got Shadow as a personal test drive to see if it would be a good alternative to buying a new high end gaming system. For over the past year, the answer has been yes. The answer has shifted to” “Questionable” because of the price increase.I understand that Shadow is geared toward gaming and is not intended for virtualization technology such as Docker. To justify the increase in monthly expense I would like to be able to do more than just gaming partly because I am spending money on other cloud services to get technology that Shadow currently does not su

Issue using mouse & keyboard through USB on iphone 8plus
I have a usb combo keyboard/trackpad I can plug into my iphone, and while it works fine on the phone itself, when using the Shadow app on my phone the keyboard doesn’t seem to be recognized. The trackpad allows me to move the cursor around the shadow and such, but I can’t seem to do any typing. Is there something I can do to address this or is this an issue that would require an app update to resolve?
Status of Shadow on an ARMv8 x64 Rasberry Pi?
It was almost a year ago when Shadow announced that they would offer an operating system for the Raspberry Pi. What is the status of this project? If it is unlikely that the Pi OS will be released what are the chances of getting the OS for the Shadow Ghost publicly available?
Update Xbox Controller inside Shadow
Hi! Can any one tell me if it is possible to upgrade Xbox Wireless Controller firmware from within Shadow?Instructions for upgrading using a PC suggest connecting via USB then opening the Xbox Accessories app. However I am only seeing the ‘Connect a device’ message and my controller is not visible as an option in this app.Incidentally, I turned ON USB passthrough in the Shadow settings. But I don’t see the controller in the available peripherals to be forwarded to Shadow.I don’t have an Xbox and only have Apple OS devices, so I’m struggling a bit for an alternative update, other than finding someone to do it for me. Would be interested to hear of any ways I can do this.
