    Hey all,
    I've had an idea. I'd love to buy a small hdmi handheld screen (say 7-10inch) that supports at least 1080p, and somehow attach controllers to the side of it.
    The idea was to be able to run hdmi from my pc (would be close by) and have a handheld device to play it off (say sitting in bed or on the couch).

    I was just wondering what sort of experience you get with your ipad and steam? Just wondering what sort of router you have as well

    You could get a small miracast wireless monitor (or small monitor with miracast dongle) and use a bracket to attach it to something like an xbox controller. That would give you a wireless display and controller

    if you are that close to your PC why not just look at your screen, i'm confused.

    iPad with Steam in home streaming works well for me. Mostly playing racing games, and the latency is acceptable. I have a Netgear Nighthawk X6.

    BTW I use an Xbox controller with bluetooth.
