Steam Link hardware flickering on Big Picture mode
Ketjow3 30 Aug
I have a problem with steam link hardware flickering (picture on tv flickers when using gamepad) on big picture mode. Anything else like gaming or desktop streaming works fine. I use manjaro gnome with latest updates. My graphic card is Nvidia GeForce GT 1030 (latest drivers from repo). I know that flickering is caused by an option in nvidia-settings called "allow flipping" - it must be turned off.
allow flipping nvidia
This problem is quite old in steam link hardware history.
Is anyone of You have similar problem or still use steam link hardware?
I don't know what I can do else to fix it?

Does it flicker when you enable software encoding on the host side?

I've never been able to fix it (nvidia gpu here, too), so I don't use big picture mode anymore. I just share the desktop and launch games from the regular Steam interface (or from the system menu).
