I access my Shadow using a Chromecast with GoogleTV. I have an Ethernet adapter on it for a strong signal. Performed the update and afterwards, the inputs on my Xbox controller are seriously lagging. Restarted everything and the problem persists. Shadow client seems to be running at full speed, it just seems like Xbox controller inputs are slow. Controller functions fine outside the Shadow app. 

The current shadow update makes it where the shadow automatically shuts down after 30 minutes of inactivity and it is very annoying to have to check it every thirty minutes as I use it through parsec to stabilize the connection. I would prefer if you were to revert before that since it is very inconvenient to have to check on it. It is also impossible to host on mobile because of this.
