    Default Re: Nvidia Shield Streaming Issues

    I would like to inform you that I fixed my issue . I did another fresh install of windows, I also reset my shield to factory, I did all updates on my shield, I installed steam & steam beta update, I installed 320.49 NVidia gtx 680 driver, and GeForce experience 1.6... I can now successfully use my shield with all controls just fine. when I install beta updates for gtx 680 driver and GeForce experience beta update, I am no longer able to use the controls.. I am also using both my gtx 680 cards in surround 3d mode @ 120hz , everything works perfect. I did find out I will need to upgrade to a better dual band router due to a few lag issues and network drop.

    Yep. Still in beta, so it'll only get better.

    Yeah the router can make a big difference, especially if you don't have a 5gHz band right now. For me, it even helped with my internet speed over WiFi.

    Make sure your shield has the newest firmware, This was a big issue on the nvidia forum. Make sure it's the one from July 26th. I had to DL 2 updates. Also check out the nvidia forum, a lot of helpful people.

    Im having a similar issue.My pc always says " no available geforce gtx pcs found ". I have a listed recommended router. I have a geforce gtx 690. The streaming buttons are listed in the nvidia experience. All drivers have been fully updated and also reinstalled using a clean install. I have an alienware aurora r4 desktop.Bios have been fully updated as well as the router. Firewalls have been disabled and same with virus protection programs. I have wiped the shield itself to factory settings. The nvidia techincal support is a joke and they have no idea whats going on. Im so frustrated and need help badly

    Sorry i didn't see this sooner. Have you taken all OTA's on SHIELD? Have you made sure that you don't have driver's for any other GPU's installed?

    Under "My Rig" is GeForce Experience you have the "Game Optimization" and "Game Streaming" boxes with a green check mark with the word Ready next to them?

    And both devices are connected to the same network? That's the only other thing I can think of. If those boxes are checked on GeForce Experience, and you've taken all OTA's, are connected to the same network, then it should work.

    Also, make sure you're on the Beta Channel with Steam, and that the games you're trying to play are supported with PC Streaming to Shield.

    Default Re: Nvidia Shield Streaming Issues

    I couldnt get mine to stream either. It would connect to the pc but just said "no supported games" I turned off windows firewall and tried 2 different N dual band routers I had lying around and still no go. Then it hit me to disable SLI. Did that and instantly my game library showed up.

    Running 2 GTX680s with a 560 dedicated to physics. I was able to enable SLI after my library popped up on the shield, it surprisingly stayed connected.

    Hope this helps you fellow SLI guys.

    For game stream you shouldn't need to have GeForce Experience running. When you go to play a game using game stream it should start Steam for you if you haven't already. You may need to dismiss a prompt to update and/or restart Steam though. Not much can be done about that, Steam has automatic updates.

    As for not seeing your game stream ready PC ensure that they're connected to the same network and that you have the latest version of GeForce Experience and the most up to date display drivers available for your system.

    For game stream there are games that are specifically supported. Here's a link to the list.

    Supported Games for the NVIDIA GeForce Experience | GeForce

    When you plug in an HDMI cable to the tablet you should be prompted to enter Console Mode. If you do that, the local tablet display will be turned off and your content will be displayed on the connected display (usually a TV). This is done because of a slight difference in resolution. You can see for yourself. If you plug HDMI in and select Mirror Mode you'll have black bars on the side of the tv, the local tablet display will still be on, and you'll see everything twice. This is because the tablet resolution is 1920x1200, and not 1920x1080. Console Mode allows you to match the TV display resolution directly, which is a better experience IMO.

    When you unplug the HDMI cable you should be prompted to exit Console Mode.

    As with most devices that have a sealed battery holding down the power button for 10 seconds will force it to power off. Then you can restart it.
