Been using shadow for months on my mac without any issues and love it.
Tried several times without luck to run it on my amazon fire stick so, after reading several good reports, took the plunge and ordered the latest shield TV Pro. Great piece of kit!
On the stream there is noticeable input lag and its making games unplayable. The TV is on game mode. In the shadow menus (pressing start and select together) there is no lag (so the connection with the shield TV is a-OK).
I'm on 500mb up/down fibre. I've tried playing with all the settings, dropping the resolution and bitrate right down but it seems to make no difference.

We were talking about this on the Discord today, and a guy named Richard gave me some tips which virtually eliminated the controller input lag problem on my Shield.
- In the Shadow client, set the resolution to 1920x1080 @ 60 FPS (mine was already this way)
- Put your TV into “game mode” (this made a huge difference for me)
- Set the Shield’s upscaling to “basic” (this helped even more for me)
I never really took “game mode” seriously enough, because it didn’t impact GFN nor the Windows PC connected to the same TV. But it sure did make a difference with Shadow. If your TV has that setting, try it!
