Stream PC and Android to Xbox One

The Microsoft Store now offers the Wireless Display to allow Windows and Android programs and apps to be streamed to an Xbox One (thanks The Verge). This includes the ability to play OC games on the console, though this must be done completely through a controller, as it does not yet support keyboard and mouse input, though this may change, especially in light of the recent addition of keyboard and mouse support to the Xbox One itself. Here's word on this beta release:

The same casting experience available on Microsoft's Surface Hub and Windows has finally arrived on Xbox One!
Microsoft's Wireless Display app lets you wirelessly project your Windows or Android based devices to your Xbox One.

  • Instantly share photos you've just taken with family and friends without having the photos sync through a cloud service.
  • Share video clips you’ve recorded with family and friends
  • Project your favorite websites with Microsoft Edge to the biggest screen in your house
  • Mirror your Android games to your TV so your friends can watch
  • Play your PC games on your Xbox while using the Xbox controller as a gamepad
  • Use your PC on your Xbox One and use the Xbox controller as a mouse/keyboard

Note: Projecting protected content, like Netflix and Hulu are not supported

I tried streaming RDR over gigabit LAN from the xbox to windows 10 and it was a laggy, terrible looking experience. Doubt much has changed in the 4 or so months since I tried that.

Well, the big question here is latency.
How big is it? Is it low enough even in a LAN in your own home?

I already thought about doing that with an Nvidia Shield, but everyone says the input lag is massive.

So I rather use a 10 meter HDMI cable from my PC to the TV and use wireless input devices.

Sick of waiting for BIS to come back to their senses and do a real ArmA 2 successor.

Very limited usefulness, but nice in some specific circumstances I guess.
