I have checked the box on the PS4 remote play settings to allow for direct connection, but it doesn’t look like the vita is actually connecting to the PS4 directly. It seems to be connecting the same way as normal. My vita is like 5ft from the PS4 so it should have a perfectly good connection. Is there a way to force the vita to connect directly to the PS4 or at least a way to confirm that it is connecting directly to the PS4?
I’m pretty sure the vita will connect to this wifi signal automatically if it deems it to be a more stable connection option than connecting it over the routers LAN.
