The mini pc meets the criteria according to another shadow tech. I did notice something last night. I have a workshop detached from my home where I set up a different 5ghz router. The internet speed is slower, but when I connect to THAT one, I seem to have WAY better results, even on wifi. I'm wondering if it might be my router in my home. In any case, I've purchased a new 5ghz router that's arriving tomorrow. I'll set it up and see what happens. Sounds like the other WiFi access point is saturated. A lot of common APs can handle a select amount of device, before they slow down your connection. When you buy one, make sure you read how many devices it can handle at full speed.
Since you mentioned HIPAA and I work with PCI, I will say it will not meet those requirements and there is no reason they should. Shadow hasn’t mentioned a business class product yet, so no reason to pay someone to come into your data centers to grant you HIPAA/PCI certification. This requirement is why some business have issues with AWS and Azure, its a tough requirement that leads most to using compensating control. I still think the biggest security feature is that your Shadow is not directly on the net and has no open inbound ports. Its likely a little more secure for it then home PC users.
You have a PC with basically no in bound ports to attack. You can download viruses the same way anyone does and they “might” be able to harm your personal info, if you aren’t running standard protection software. You use a secure method to authenticate your identity to your Shadow, so you can interact. The stream itself is like a movie, no one is taking your banking password from it. In Jaxxys case he cant even accidentally DL a keylogger to his Ghost, for someone to get passwords that way. Its not that Shadow is trying to use obscurity to protect the service, its that they are keeping streaming performance high while keeping your Shadow very locked down. Those are my professional observations. Dar
Here is how I do it. I start Shadow on my Mac, then switch Mac to 5mbps and then go to Quest. When I use it like this it never has issues and lasts awhile. I’ve mentioned up the chain that iOS doesn't seem to keep alive. And yours never times out, and you never receive the ‘new hardware’ chime? I have the issue if I have the streamer open on either my mac or my PC. Not when my Mac is running the stream. I turn it to 5mbps, then fire the quest up. Your Shadow has 100mbps upload and thats what the stream uses. Hence the 5mbps, to leave plenty of bandwidth for Quest.
We have loads of users in the midwest / Ohio area using Spectrum to the Chicago data center experiencing routing issues. One of the US mods has reached out to Spectrum and they didnt seem able / willing to fix the issue. He did notice that he was getting much better stats to NY and that using that vs Chi was likely the best route to go. If you are able to test over Ethernet, I would do that to eliminate wifi. If that test shows no improvement, then its likely Spectrum.
Have you used the Shadow overlay or Ping Plotter to look for packet loss or latency in the moment there is stutters? On my macbook I feel like wifi and Shadow hasn’t been good, getting moments where things run poor then it gets better. In my case there was packet loss each time. I found two fixes. using poe adapter for a Ethernet like experience. i kicked all devices of the 5ghz portion of my wifi and use it only for Shadow and Oculus Quest.
@skapeee you cant not use another service for contrast, because its location could be different. Use the Shadow overlay or Ping Plotter to track your stats. That’s step one to identify the problem. That said, I have noticed some wifi sensitivity in the Shadow app. However, without some stats its hard to narrow this down.
