Streaming from PCVR to Standalone HMD
Pico Neo 2 / Pico Neo 3 Pro
If the streaming seems to work well, but the visual quality is low – open the Pico’s Streaming Assistant app, click on “Settings” and change the Image Quality to “Normal” or “HD”.
If you are experiencing sensible lag with the stream, to check your WiFi environment. Next to the Pico’s speed checking in-VR tool, you could also try speedtest.net and verify your WiFi bandwidth is enough. You can also use your WiFi router’s tools to scan for interference. Usually, changing the radio channel helps. Try multiple channels to find the one performing best.
The streaming works well, but the controllers lag – this is because your CPU is topping up. Close any unnecessary CPU-consuming apps like AnyDesk. Please see the required network and PC specifications.
Neo 3 Pro supports Wi-Fi 6 ( 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac/ax) and 2.4GHz/5GHz. Please enable 5G band when using wireless streaming. Also, please see the hardware and network requirements here. For the Network part, the requirements are as follows:
- Network port: Gigabit wired network port
- Router: 1 5G router (a gigabit network port is required)
- The network cables from the network port to the router and from the router to the computer need to be category 6 and above;
I also encourage you to disable the firewall and use a standalone WiFi router for streaming. According to feedback from other clients. At 5GHz ~500Mbps, the HD quality runs well at 90Hz. The application frame rate is around 57 fps. Hope the information above helps.
