Using it on my deck to connect to my PS4. It works quite good now, but I had to tinker a bit.
5GHz Wifi causes big stutters but 2,4GHZ Wifi work a lot better for me. Using 720p stream with 20000kb/s

On my Desktop PC, connected via Ethernet cable, Chiaki works with 1080p also on 20000kb/s without any issues.
Great project for Steam Deck.
