    • Sorry for the late response, but hopefully this helps anyone else who comes across this page.

      Here is the documentation for setting up remote play on PS5 with Windows: https://remoteplay.dl.playstation.net/remoteplay/lang/en/ps5_win.html

      In my experience, I’ve had similar issues with remote play on PS4 with several verification/connection issues and lag during streaming. The following should apply to both consoles. Make sure to log in to your PSN account and activate your PS4/PS5 as your primary console. (PS4: go to Account Management, PS5: Users and Accounts). I also had to switch/reconfigure my network settings to improve the stability and fix the random disconnects.

      Try switching to a wired connection if you haven’t already or getting a stronger wireless signal to your console.
