Hello everyone.

The Mixed Reality Forums here are no longer being used or maintained.

There are a few other places we would like to direct you to for support, both from Microsoft and from the community.

The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.

For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality.

If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers, or in our Microsoft Tech Communities forums at https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/mixed-reality/ct-p/MicrosoftMixedReality.

And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.

Streaming over Wifi

Tried to demo the Hololens the other day. We were trying to stream to a TV (hooked up to a laptop) however we couldn't seem to get it to work efficiently. And when it did connect, it was at 240p with almost 10-15 seconds latency. Both devices were hooked up to a old router (not connected to a WAN) withing feet of each other. What was our issue? Would a improved router be our solution?


  • Our streaming works fine in the office, although it still impacts framerates. When we took it to demo using an old 802.11n router, performance dropped significantly, especially when we started walking around the large demo room. We ended up getting new 802.11ac routers.

    This other post discusses the wifi capabilities of the HoloLens. Check the last link in Adam's post.
