Auto Shutdown When Using Shaow
I am using the Shadow Ghost and have the Logitech G502 Hero and Logitec G513 Mouse and Keyboard.As of last week when using the shadow I have been given the notification of the Auto Shutdown timer when I am using Shadow and no matter if I click type or anything it does not register I have not had this issue at all until last week. I have seen that it might be an issue with the 3.0 ports but I have been using them and have had not had the issue up until last week.
Unable to load shadow.
I have been using shadow for the past 2 weeks on a Chromebook and use the shadow app from the play store. But it seems like all because that one update will not display video. It will say “loading video” then go back to the main menu to “Start Shadow.” It will continue to repeat this. Any ideas?
Builtin support for USB over IP in the Linux client
Hey,Another thread was opened on the similar topic but that was over a year ago and comments have been closed. With the changes at Shadow HQ lately, I’m curious as to whether there has been some new developments on that front, so opening a new thread is the only way to check.I am aware that there is a third party solution with Zerotier/Tailscale + VirtualHere, but these are paid solutions when you need multiple USB devices, which is quite common if one wants to use VR, a HOTAS, a steering wheel, TrackIR, streaming devices, HUD simulation devices, a drawing tablet, or a combination of those. I have a paid licence for VirtualHere and I am happy about it, but it’s still very clumsy to use and setup a VPN between the local and remote machines. Most of all, the VirtualHere license is tied to a single local machine, which kinda beats one of the main points of cloud computing because I cannot play simulators from secondary devices. For these reasons, even if I paid a licence for VirtualHere a

Lag on Modern Warfare (2019) but only when shooting, and only with XBOX Controller
It’s a very weird issue and i saw that somebody had the similar thing a year ago but didn’t receive an answer here.So i played many games with my XBOX Controller on Shadow without any lags or issues, but i have issues with one specific game: Modern Warfare (2019). I found out that in the game i get some controller lag. Interestingly it only feels really bad when shooting. When i click on the RT shoot button it shoots for like 2-3 seconds instead of only when i press the button. If i change to Keyboard the problem disappears.Anyone having a similar problem?Thanks
Suddenly Shadow on iMac resetting constantly and Windows screen wrong Resolution
I have been using Shadow from an iMac 27 “ (2560 x 1440) for over a year without problems - tonight - when I activated Shadow on the iMac (April 5 2021 8:16 PM PST) it starts - finds a stream - but displays an 800 x 600 Windows desktop then Shadow will shut down and restart the whole process. I have been using Shadow all day without problems and changed nothing on the iMac. I re-installed a new copy of Shadow (for Apple OS 10) but the same thing repeats - I have changed the settings again in the Quick Menu which seems to detect Apple - as the login computer - but the resolution is 0x0 and I can’t access the change resolution menu (grayed out). You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 702-826-0152 (call or text) - please help. Thank you - James Sullivan, Pasadena, CA 91106
Memory sticks disable wireless mice and keyboards on ghost
HiI have a wireless keyboard and mouse (Microsoft Wireless 900), with the dongled placed in the Ghost.When I plug in the memory stick the mouse stops working and the keyboard becomes less responsive.I have tried switching the USB ports I am using, a different memory stick, a different wireless keyboard and mouse (Logitech) for my wife PC. Same results everytime.So right now the Ghost is pretty useless for work as I have stuff on a memory stick which I constantly use but can operate the PC when I plug it in - any thoughts anyone?Thank you
Microphone on Headset Won't Work
I know there are a ton of questions already about this issue but none of the solutions I’ve read have helped me. I have a Logitech G Pro X that I use for audio on my computer. It works perfectly fine on my personal computer, but when I log into Shadow, my microphone will not work in any application. The computer itself will not recognize that I have a microphone. I’ve installed Logitech G Hub on Shadow but even on that app the headset doesn’t appear. I’ve followed each step listed at How to Connect a Microphone to Shadow – Shadow - Support (EN) and watched youtube videos but none of the solutions have worked. If I want to join a group chat on discord or another software, I have to make sure I join through my personal desktop and then go into Shadow, otherwise it won’t work in the Shadow software. Does anyone else have any other possible solutions? It’s very annoying to have to go back and forth between my desktop and Shadow.
Shadow reset, all additional storage gone.
So, I’m a little annoyed.My Shadow was completely reset, and all my additional storage is gone. So, I’ve got 255gb of storage and none of my files left. I wasn’t notified of this happening, and Shadow support haven’t responded to my email. Has this happened to anyone else?
Bandwidth allocation issue
Hi, I'm having some issues with lag during streaming. I'm on a 5Ghz wifi channel and my download speed is above 15Mb/s, so the connection is stable and no packets should be lost. I've been using the auto detect feature on Shadow to select my bit rate, and it usually chooses 5Mbps for me. However, when I run a test on my Chromecast, I get a speed of 70Mbps. It seems like either Shadow or my router is not allocating enough bandwidth. Does anyone have any tips or suggestions for fixing this issue?
Not loading games

Shadow all off a sudden very unstable/ not usable
My pc worked till a couple of hours back but since an hour or 8 I cannot do anything anymore. While nothing was changed or newly installed past few days. Some of the issues (but not all):Steam > does not start, when it does it is instant not resoonding moment i click in the app on anything Battle.net > not enough recourses error (see screenshot) This computer > can not see C-drive or the extra drive it just loads indefinityl with the text working on it Deleting a file gets stuck at 99% Copying a file gets stuck at 99% (same drive since my extra drive is I guess somewhere with the fairies since just typing in the drive letter or selecting it in an app brings the whole system to its knees) Trying to play any game results in it not starting or crashing within 1-2min Playnite > crashes when I try to add a game (opening explorer window just crashes, tried in ms word to do a save as to force open explorer and same just crashing)clicking shutdown shadow takes 10+ min, starting it
