So based on the AC Odyssey thread, I’ve been starting to think more about how I might create the ultimate home setup.
My goal is to bring couch controller gaming powered by a PC to 3 rooms in our house.
I think the ideal solution probably involves streaming from a central PC. However I’m worried about latency and input lag. Open to other ideas.
1 of the TVs is a 75” 4K HDR so it might be best to have the native setup here (family room) but that would limit gaming in my office/desk (where the gaming PC is currently)
the other 2 are 1080p 55” so could likely be streamed (2 bedrooms)
my current gaming PC is in my office which is where the internet comes into the house and where the router is. I would need to run cat-5 from here to each room.
So one idea I was thinking was to build 3 PCs:
family room: full tower power house to push 4K to the TV
2x bedroom: “dummy” terminal micro cases with decent CPU to accept, decode, and facilitate smooth playback of a 1080/60 stream from the family room
What do you guys think? Give me your Strats!
