Hello everyone.

We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.

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.

The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.

On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.

So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. 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. 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.
