XR700 - How to prioritize PC Games/ Nvidia Shield

I am a bit confused by the gaming option in the drop down menu as it only lists a very small selection of games. How do I prioritize games played from my PC (hard wired) and games from my Nvidia Shield (WiFi)?

Elite Dangerous is an unlisted game, but luckily it's quite easy to manually prioritize a game.

 

To prioritize manually:

On the QoS page, under Traffic Prioritization, choose ADD DEVICE. Select the device you're trying to play on and press next, then press Advanced. Now you need to look up online what ports your game needs. Enter the ports and press Done.

 

For Elite Dangerous, they suggest that you open UDP port 5100 and then specify that port from within the game. Here's Frontier's guide on how to do this: https://support.frontier.co.uk/kb/faq.php?id=344

 

Another option that might work is to go to Device Manager in DumaOS, select your computer, and change its device type to PlayStation or Xbox. For many games on PC, this allows them to be correctly prioritized.

In most cases DumaOS Classified Games should cover you. It includes all consoles so your Shield should be prioritized and it covers the most popular PC games. Unless you have noticed the feature not prioritizing anything then I would stick with DumaOS Classified Games.

Yeah for some reason it isn't working as intended. Some games are recognized but others are not (elite dangerous for example). Not sure how I would go about manually prioritizing it.
