I'm going to show you how you can set up your gaming PC in the living room without it being in the living room. You can get up to 4K 60 frames per second and I'll show you exactly what you need to get it up and running.

The first thing you need is a USB Over Ethernet, this will be relatively inexpensive and you can find it on Amazon. I'll provide links. The next item you need is an EZCoo HDMI Over Ethernet This baby will allow you to have 4K 60 frames per second over Ethernet.
It will also allow you to have 1080p at 120 frames per second. I've plugged a USB hub into the USB over Ethernet, so I can have Bluetooth and the keyboard.

You're going to need two HDMI's, one for each end and you'll need four Ethernet cables two for each end.
Only one end of the EZCoo HDMI Over Ethernet needs a power adapter, the other device will receive power over Ethernet. Once everything's connected all of the lights will be lit as you can see in the Video below.

It's important to note that you require CAT5e or CAT6 ethernet cabling from your PC location to your Living room, If your house already has Ethernet installed, all you'll have to do is change a couple of cables in your patch panel to link the ports from your computer room and your living room together.
Otherwise, you'll have to run cables from the computer room to your living room.

Now, all you have to do is set up that the desired resolution on your PC. I'm going to use 1080p 120hz because I have a LG W9 which allows that resolution, I'm also going to use 4K at 60 frames per second. Sometimes you get no signal on your TV if that's the case, make sure you have the right resolution set, such as 4k or 1080p.

Once everything is set up, you'll be able to enjoy lag-free gaming in your living room. You can now play games at 4K, 60 frames per second or 1080p at 120 frames per second, unfortunately, 1440p at 120 frames per second isn't supported.
For most people that will be perfectly fine. I'm using an Xbox controller over Bluetooth but you can use a wireless keyboard or even a wired keyboard along with a wired mouse it's up to you.

This is a great alternative to the Nvidia shield. You no longer have to stream your games because you got it right there as if the PC was in the same room, lag-free and no latency. I've only got an Nvidia 1080ti, I don't have an RTX card just yet, if you do and you've got this setup, let me know if G-sync works on HDMI over Ethernet.
