I was thinking about getting a MINIX ....... if the price is right, the SHIELD looks like a great buy.

How much did you purchase one @tapyok ?

Just a heads up... medyo hindi sya madaling i navigate... kahit gamitan mo ng mouse... kaya medyo antay antay lang sa updates... but since it was release last june... there were already 3 updates so it means that nvidia has full support on this...

The 500gb is 18K pesos...
Does this passthrough HD Audio especially Dolby Atmos?

May DTS-X firmware upgrade na kaya itong Nvidia?

May DTS-X firmware upgrade na kaya itong Nvidia?
Non yet and there's still no material to test it...

Post by: ♡ lvcdg23™ ✌ on Oct 20, 2015 at 04:12 PM
Here's my newbie & non-professional review of the NVidia Shield Android TV ^-^

Build Quality
9.5 / 10
Of all the media players I have tried (Egreat, Dune, Popcorn Hour, HiMedia), the NVidia Shield is by far has the best build quality. The player itself is very sturdy and heavy. The default gaming remote(controller) is solidly built comparable to PS4 gaming controller. Even the power brick is of high quality unlike other brands that is of generic type.

User Interface
8.5 / 10
The Android based software is very smooth and fluid.
NVidia really worked hard on this.
The voice recognition (mic) that is built in the game controller is very accurate and useful that I don't need to type or use the on-screen keyboard when searching apps on the Google Play and youtube.
Device set up is a breeze

Playback
Video
7.5 / 10
4K playback has some limitations as some of my downloaded 4K materials didn't play.
All my Full HD remux mkv played smoothly.
There's even an option for 4K / 23.976Hz playback.
One of the downside is I can't playback my iso files, maybe I need to install Kodi but according to other forums, HD-Audio passthrough is not supported in Kodi yet.
The player is also not capable of BDMV playback but you can browse the BDMV folder and look for the main movie.
There's NO Full Bluray Menu support also.
Haven't tried 3D playback yet so I have to update this once I got to test it.

Hopefully in the future upgrades they will include iso playback in their internal video player...

Audio
9.5 / 10
Dolby True HD, DTS Master Audio and Dolby Atmos where all bitstreamed without any problem using the default video player.
I will have to play around with the unit to see if it could decode these HD Audio and output LPCM.

Picture Quality
Based from my untrained eyes, this NVidia Shield has the best PQ of all the media players I have tried.
NVidia really has lived up to its reputation as a respected dedicated graphics card manufacturer and its very evident with their NVidia Shield.
With my Oppo 103 as reference (100%), I could safely say that the NVidia Shield is at 91% level :)
Contrast and black levels are very very good >:D

So far I'm really impressed with this player that I am considering getting another one for the bedroom :)
It is more expensive than other 4K Android media players but its capability, potential and solid build quality is worth the price ;)

Actually brader using KODI as the player would solve the iso playback but hindi pa ata supported ang HD Audio passthrough.

Title: Re: Nvidia shield console
Post by: CoolTOYZPH on Oct 20, 2015 at 09:02 PM
Depends on the up-scaling capability of the TV.
Although often an external media player is  better. Often but not always... depending on the TV model.

If I have a 4k uhd tv and I want to watch 4k movies on my.usb,will I have a better picture quality if I use this nvidia shield connected to tv via hdmi or same picture quality if I directed to uhd tv via usb?

Advantage ata of the 500gb is if you'll install games and apps.
Pero if for movies/HT pwede na yung 16gb.

So far apps that I installed are KODI, ES File Explorer and MX Player.
Will try VLC Beta later on is pwede siya mag direct play ng ISO files.

I have a Nexus Player and it also runs on Android TV. The Android TV Play Store is pretty shallow in terms of the number of apps available. Both IFlix and Spotify are not available in the Play Store.

So I sideloaded IFlix onto my Nexus Player. It installed without issue, and it works. I sideloaded Spotify and it works as well. So IFlix should also work on the Nvidia Shield Console.

just got this unit.  I can't seem to stream directly from NAS. i had to used Kodi or Plex.  any software / work around to stream like DNLA? i have a smart TV and it can stream from NAS but sometimes no audio. I tried apple TV, great picture but Plex is struggling. I thought Shield will do the transcoding from the NAS (with PLEX) but it seems the NAS would transcode (it can't do it for big files). I have now setup my Imac to do the transcoding and I will check tonight if its ok. I was up till 2am figuring this thing out. :)

Since it came out there have been no problem getting one. I  had one for sale last August 2015.

They had a sale two months ago. It was for sale for 150$. If I am not mistaken it came with a free remote on top of the game pad.


If you really want one. Just get a package forwarding company. I paid around 1.8k for one NSATV for freight fees.


Even with that. I came below 12.5k

No problems connecting a hard drive to shield.  When Android Marshmallow came out, HD can be treated as system storage


Use KODI if you have not used it before. NSATV is a beast. No lag or pauses when navigating or playing movies. Customize it as much as you can with skins.

May netflix na sa pinas. So it should be able to stream netflix videos that  are available sa pinas.

Naging available ang netflix sa pinas last Jan 2016.  Three plans available. 370 Pesos, 460 Pesos at 550 pesos. Affordable na affordable.

As for the other apps. It is not Nvidia shield fault if they do not make available in the Philippines their content.

Even with that. I came below 12.5k


May sale ba ulit net?
Anong site sya naka sale

Title: Re: Nvidia shield console

Is it worth it to buy the 500gb vs the 16gb?

Android 6 Marshmallow blurred the the reason in getting 500gb vs 16gb Shield  because of adoptive storage.

You can attach a 1TB usb 3.0 hard drive to the shield and it will make it into system storage.

So if you bought a 16gb shield. Youll have roughly 1016 GB of  system storage space. If you got the 500GB shield youll have a total of 1.5TB of system storage.

if you are using  KODI. go settings. Video then library. Import movie information.

if you have the cover arts already. Instead Import use Export then. chose separate directories. It will put all the movie informations. Art, Nfo, actors the directory of the movie itself.

Make sure hindi naka standard view. but expert or advance.

If you want to be seamless about it. .   Why not just add your videos, then use a movie scrapper?
usually if you have no local art or files with your individual movie directories or folder it will automatically download it sa internet.

Just do not panic if your cover art at movie is not at sync for a few minutes. It will usually show the previous movie cover art if kodi is still downloading the cover arts from the internet.

here is a quick rundown of the process.

http://www.htpcbeginner.com/add-media-sources-to-kodi/

Tapos pag satisfied ka na sa mga cover arts ng lahat ng movies mo do this.

http://arnaudbertrand.io/blog/2014/11/22/how-to-export-import-the-video-media-library-in-kodi/

Just ignore the part where you have to add videos since you already did it.

Kodi uses a single database or file for the movie arts etc etc. So if you want to back it up sa mga individual  movie folders do  the second link.

If i plug in this console to a non 4k TV, where do i find the setting saying that it can output 4k resolution? I was browsing over the different setting last night and I only found 1080p reso. My hdmi might also be not for 4k  use also

TVs have embedded EDID data that is passed to the source via hdmi that tells the source what the display is capable of. So if the EDID data says that the TV is only capable of 1080p the source will only allow up to 1080p resolution.

Not related to your BD movie question. But try using SPMC instead of kodi.

SPMC is a customized version/Fork of kodi  for NSATV made by the previous kodi android  maintainer.

Koying uses the NSATV as his main media streaming box.

Hi guys. Tanung lang. Pwede po ba yung setting na 60hz sa pag navigate ng menu pero kapag mag-play na ng movie auto-switch na siya sa 24p? Kasi kapag setting ko is 60hz, kapag nag-play ang movie naka 60hz din tapos kapag 24p ganun din. Ang maganda kasi kapag 60hz setting is smoother/faster ang navigation niya sa menu. TIA

the Recommended add ons "hack" no one asked for , removed
automatic upload without asking of user stats , "user record" and user report , removed (every time you started it) (Customers are not supposed to be QA)

It is the first time I heard that shield TV are being sold only with the remote and not the game controller. This has been one of the request of the Shield owners next time Nvidia sells a shield is to replace the controller with the remote.  Owners would just get  a third party controller of their choosing.

It is a good deal. I paid like 11500 for my shield a year ago all in all. I used JAC to get it delivered.

Not sure sa version ng Jarvis. Check ko later mamaya pag uwi sa bahay and check ko din kung nag pass through ng Master HD. Puro DTS kasi movies ko.

finally had the time to unbox mine. had less of an incentive, as all of a sudden, the QNAP NAS I had been using as the player started passing thru Atmos again (my best guess is an HDMI handshake issue that got resolved after a few reboots)

Decided to use this for the bedroom setup to replace an underpowered Remix Mini PC (Kickstarter funded) that I had previously been using. That was able to run Kodi, but I noticed stuttering with some 4K material, despite being on a gigabit connection

Initial thoughts?

Would've been great to have the remote bundled, as the game controller is a bit clunky to use (when not really playing games). Unfortunately I didn't get to buy the discounted bundle

Also had issues with range using my Logitech K400R keyboard. Seems like a common issue where the frequency it used conflicts with the Shield. Got resolved by using a USB extender or OTG cable.

Performance wise, it's pretty zippy. Using SPMC (and not Kodi), with the Arctic Zephyr skin and Emby as the backend. Have it synced to Philips Hue lights (using Hue Lightstrips behind the TV to provide Ambilight) and that works perfectly as well

No real need for Atmos passthrough now as I'm just using a soundbar.

Probably too pricey for just a simple media player, but does look sleek and is pretty responsive.

whew.. oo nga pala interested din ako sa NVidia Shield dati pa -- and now there's a 2017 version coming?  that's very very good!

1. I even stared a new thread for Zapitti 4K HDR NMT para pag-usapan din.  but heck, if it's price is really 15,000PhP, then it would be a steal just acquiring this new NVidia Sheild.
2. I'm looking for a (wireless) gamepad controller for my current Android NMT, instead gumastos ako for its gamepad,  NVidia Sheild has it already.

My kid's are getting hooked on playing Android games on TV now, so I guess this is the most practical solution for us.  =))

  -- I'm using Plex with my LG TV and laptop since 2012.  will be very glad to have it here on NVIDIA Shield as well to work harmoniously with my LG 55UH8500
- Disney (Channel, Junior and XD) are now on SHIELD! 
   -- if this works perfectly, we could already unsubscribe our SKY-Destiny cable service

Since it just got released yesterday we have to wait for someone to say something about plex, atmos and dts;x  on the Update 5.0

The old shield will be getting the same update next week. They prioritized the new owners of 2017 so as not to jam their servers with download request.

So if any info that going to come out between now and next week. It would be from the new owners.

BTW, I heard that this pairs flawlessly with a PS4 controller (Dualshock4).  So meaning, I won't need to buy an extra controller since I have one already. =))

Yep. Release date was  Jan 16.


Some have said they bought their shield 2017 for $ 175.  The remote is now bundled free.

then it's better to buy the Pro -- with 500HDD (or it is SSD) inside?

I am not sure what HDD is inside the pro. I think it is just an ordinary  HDD and not an SSD. The 16 gb is ssd. 

I have not connected any usb hard disk to my 16 gb shield since I have everything on my NAS. Actually my NAS is just  an My WD My Cloud with a powered USB 3.0 hub. I can add usb hard disk on it if I ran out of space. I have 7 USB 3.0 slot so I just keep adding USB hard drive to expand my storage. 

The main issue with 16 gb vs 500 gb shield right now is, if you are planning to run Plex server. Plex server does not like saving on USB hard drive. If I am not mistaken it has to do with plex android write permissions. There  is info that they fixed this with Update 5.0, but this is so far unconfirmed.

So if you  plan to run Plex Server you need to get the 500 GB version so that you wont have problems Plex saving meta data, thumbs etc etc when building its movie info database.

The 16 Gb would be instantly be filled if you try to use  Plex server especially if you have hundreds of movies and content.
Title: Re: Nvidia shield console
Post by: mhacman on Jan 18, 2017 at 01:06 PM
As i understand and which I do since 2012 with Plex is that my Plex Server is installed on my laptop together with my movie libraries.  the pre-installed Plex in my LG TV is the Plex player.  it doesn't save anything on the TV.  All meta data is saved on the Plex Server (in my laptop).

my best guess is it should be the same for the Plex pre-installed on NVidia Sheild.

if it doesn't work the same way, I would settle with KODI/SPMC on NVidia and stick a HDD on its USB port.. =))

thanks, sir DPT. I realized the remote is very slim, so it should be true for CRC battery =))

I think the console's charger will act as the same charger for the controller -- both via micro usb.  meaning:
-- use that charger to charge the controller while your not playing
-- dismiss charging your controller and connect the same charger to the console to power it up when you're going to play

I liked the idea. it will save us from too many cables to keep on-hand  =))

Okay so far this is what people have been saying with the 2017 shield.

No power button but smaller.   The shield is meant to be an always on device since it can be used as a smart home hub.  If you shut it down and need to start it via software, you have to have an on and off switch where you plugged your shield power adapter to turn it on.  An easy fix, as most power extension cord  have on and off switch on their individual out power sockets.

Unplugged the network and disable location services  after you navigate to settings before attaching the network cable  at first start of it  . This avoids the location services having a heart attack  and causes reboots at next boot up when the shield is first booted when it tries to search for your location outside of US.

for now, we won't be using it for online streaming.  only movie watching offline (thru USB-connected HDD) and android games playing.  we might also use Plex via Wi-Fi to test/.

I'm fine with the no off-switch, I have a power source with individual switches too. and I always turn off "Location" mode anyway.

I have the 16 gb version original version then nilagyan ko ng 64 gb micro sd at inadopt ko sya as internal storage nung naka marshmallow os ako kaya naging 80 gb total space ko. Then meron ako usb thumb drive na 8gb nakasaksak sa isang usb slot doon nakalagay mga roms ko para sa emulators, then sa isang usb slot meron nakalagay na receiver para sa wireless kb/mouse ko, then meron pa sya vacant micro usb port if ever gusto ko magsaksak ng additional external hard drive. Lahat kasi movies ko naka kabit sa router ko na asus ac-87u at ini stream ko lang using spmc. The hdr is working well in both amazon and netflix, ang kagandahan lang nde ko na ginagamit roku ultra ko kasi kaya na ni shield gawin lahat ng streaming needs ko. Oh and another imporant update in android nougat is pwede na iforce sa yuv 4:4:4 12 bit ang color space. Yup madami ako installed games siguro mga 30, tapos mga games na pag aari mo sa google playstore sa phone ppwede mo din install sa shield.

hahaha 8kg? That is going to be super expensive.

JAC has  a online chat help.  You can ask questions real time by chat or get in touch with Trixie at Jac. I have sent several through JAC and she is always the one I get to talk to.

Last time I sent something through JAC was almost a year ago. Maybe things are different now or Trixie left.

I had mine shipped using JAC and it cost 1.8k even with the amazon box 1.5 years ago.

How did you arrive at the 8kg equivalent of the Volumentric weight?

Ako rin madalas mag JAC dati pero natigil na. Not sure connected parin ba si YAB sa JAC pdvd member siya. She used to give discounts.
afaik sa JAC pag electronics $7/lb parin.
checking sa amazon site nasa 3.8lb daw eh. yung PRO nasa 4.4lb.

Personally I prefer the 2015 model than the 2017. The 2017 is not an upgrade but a downgrade. It has less connectivity ports,  no micro USB,  no headphones jack on remote. Only the game controller on the 2017 is worth buying. Sorry I cannot help you on your request I am too busy.

Buying 2015 model is more costly IMHO.  It is better in terms of hardware features, The things that are missing on the 2017 are the  Micro sd and IR receiver, that is if you have a Harmony remote. 

But you will not get the free  remote and the new controller with rumble support if you buy the 2015 shield . 


If i have to choose between the 16 gb  2015 and  16 gb 2017. I most probably get 2017. I have never used the Micro sd slot of the IR receiver since I do not own a harmony remote and no plans of buying one.

What I use is a usb hub and have my IR remotes and other devices connected.

In short, i just use the usb 3.0 port for all of my devices.

If you need to use the headphone jack for private listening. The 2017 controller has a head phone jack.

thank you, thank you, masters for your responses...  whichever I get one first, I guess will be the one in my possession.

for now, I would also just use the USB 3.0 ports and Plex streaming from my laptop.  I checked branded quality micro-SD cards and seems they are more expensive than 3.0 USB flashdrives.

2017 appears to be cheaper, has a smaller form factor, has better looking controller and free remote
  -- but has lesser 3.0 USB port and has no micro-SD port

2015 is like the size of a letter bond paper, has a larger controller and no free remote
  -- but has +1 3.0 USB port and has micro-SD port (this may be useful too)
  -- will cost me P3,000 if I buy an orig remote but I think there are cheaper replacements for this

as performance, features and support are equally the same, I think any one will do for me, then =))

would anyone know who to contact locally for the warranty?  thanks again!

3. Infra red port usable by a harmony remote
4. The thin remote of the 2017 model has no earphone jack
5.the controllers of the 2017 connects via Bluetooth whereas 2015 models connect via WiFi.

To give you idea ang 1tb hard disk ko nakakabit sa Asus rt-ac87u na router ko then yung shield ko naka lan cable papunta sa router,  mas gusto ko wired para Less interference at mas reliable ang data transfer kayang kaya naman mga 4k HDR downloaded samples ko. Pwede mo din ikabit yung hardisk diretso sa shield at gawin mong server ang shield thru plex

Cool so pwede pala siya na actual Plex Media Server kasi sa appletv  ko pra maging possible yon dpat my naka install na plugin sa NAS ko and hndi  kaya ng DLINK NAS ko ang transcoding at direct play since low end nas lng gamit ko sa case pala ng NVIDIA Shield pwede siya mag direct play at transcode ng media using yung NVIDIA Shield mismo.

Title: Re: Nvidia shield console
Post by: mhacman on Jan 31, 2017 at 03:12 PM
looks like available na sa Benstore..  but I found I hate them.

- website nila madali mag-place ng order pero hindi malinaw na sinabing may 10% initial payment pala kung COD.. i find this DUH!
   - I tried to re-place an order and opt for "store pick-up" instead.  mukhang may 10% initial payment din kasi yung status ng order ko is same dun sa previous COD order ko
   - it didn't move status in 2-days, so I tried to find a CANCEL order option.  wala sa website.  so I emailed them to cancel it.  took 2-days after nag-confirm na cancel na order ko
- nahihinaan ako sa sales people nila

note: I haven't talked to them.  'coz I tried to call twice, both failed.

kung ipipilit ko na sa Benstore parin kukuha, I would rather drop by their store in Sta. Cruz Manila.  I think this is better for my questions can be answered face-to-face =))  and once I pay in cash, mai-uwe ko narin agad yung unit.  =))

i got my nvidia pro + remote sometime in October 2015. I got it from amazon and shipped thru LBC shipping cart. At that time, i think i paid a little more than 21k. That was before LBC increased its shipping rate. Also, i tried ordering it sa Benstore kasi nasa probinsya ako, pero mabagal magreply. Dumating na sa LBC warehouse yong shield before i got their reply. Sa Amazon, magaantay kayo pero sulit naman. The Nvidia TV is a very nice media center and the support is very good, nakikipagsabayan sa updates.

so in short, I asked my boss to purchase for me in AMAZON and deliver to his home then hand it to our colleague.  both guys agreed yesterday and the items has been booked immediately!

What are the extra features that cannot be found on 2015 unit?

Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

talking only of the 16GB variants:

smaller form factor lesser by 40% in size (according to NVidia) thus they removed the 2 ports in the 2017 model.  also, they removed the "On" switch in the unit -- but there is On/Off button on the "included" flat remote.  the body of the 16GB 2017 is more matte plastic-looking --- less of the piano finishes found on the 16GB 2015.

these units comparison is subjective to consumers.  some needs the extra ports that has been removed, thus they say it's "pangit na".. while others, likes a smaller sized unit whom may not need those extra ports, thus they say "mas maganda"..

what's important is performance.. they're still the same.  and also, NVidia's support is VERY okay.  imagine, whatever app features/OS were put into the 2017 model, they also offered as updates to the 2015 model.  kaya pareho parin sila.  sa iba yan, iiwan na nila kung ano meron sa lumang model at ilalagay lang sa bago.. para masabing "bago" talaga.  the case of NVidia is otherwise.

for the 500GB variant, all exactly the same.  only new designed controller and with new "free" remote (new because the 3.5mm audio jack is removed, but it's given as a freebie, anyway).  you can still buy the 2015 flat remote separately, for PhP2,800, I think...

HTH!

Yes,  if the shield's OS is either version 6 marshmallow or version 7 nougat,  and you adopt the hardisk to be part of the shields internal storage. But if you just plug it in and not adopt then you can still use it on other devices without the need of reformat

Ah ok so if i just use the internal 16 gb for the os, then i should be fine and use my current hdds to my other media players still right?

the 16 gb is too small to fit all your apps,  my suggestion is you buy a USB drive with fast read speed say 128 gb and adopt it as internal and you install all your apps here,  then use the other USB slot for removable storage of the size of your choice and use that for copying files that can be later plugged to other devices

I thought the 2015 model only has a IR receiver port and not a IR blaster port?

Anyone who is using Plex or Kodi to play movies connected to a NAS ( DLINK DNS 320L) or any NAS like QNAP & Synology. How's the performance when playing 4K movies?

lucky, very lucky me...

I've learned this Monday we have a colleague sent to NJ and will stay there for only 2 weeks.  I immediately asked him for a favor. another fortunate thing, he's with the same office branch as my boss in the US.

so in short, I asked my boss to purchase for me in AMAZON and deliver to his home then hand it to our colleague.  both guys agreed yesterday and the items has been booked immediately!

-- NVidia Shield 2017
-- Shield Stand

I might have them on/before Valentine's Day -- fingers-crossed =))


finally I've got mine held in my arms...  sweet Valentine's Day indeed =))

when I get back home, i will:
- check for the OS version and firmware and set-off the auto-update -- and will not connect with Wi-Fi yet
- check if this has an internal/built-in media player, if none, will install Kodi 17 & SPMC
  - check with 1 4K HDR movie via HDD with its USB
     - check if HDR comes up
     - check if ATMOS is passed-thru
  - check with some FHD movies via HDD with its USB
     - check if ATMOS is passed-thru
     - check if DTS:X is passed-thru
- connect with Wi-Fi and install 1 or 2 Android games
- install ES File Explorer
  - copy emu's and roms to its local storage
- adopt my PNY 64GB USB 3.0 flashdrive
   - transfer the emu's and roms from local storage to the adopted flashdrive
- play some and some more games...

wish me luck =))

LG chess is a BT2020 HDR sample file...  sir xxadonisxx, was there an HDR notif that came up on your B6 playing this file?  with the media info on B6, it should also indicate if its BT2020 and HDR... TIA!

post-Valentine's Day set-up.. okay, so I unpacked, took pics and did minor connection with my TV first.

initially, it will find your controller & remote, ask for your language (I chose US English) and location (I said NO) if you have an android phone, it will force you to connect with it and give you a key to input to your phone to pair up.  then it asks for your google account (huh?).  it will then ask you to connect thru Wi-Fi router (maybe it sensed there are available Wi-Fi signals, it didn't offer me to connect thru Ethernet).  and so now it will force to bring you to its 5.0.1 SHIELD Experience Update... =))

what the!!!  none of my review approach above has happened so far!  all are forced to you step-by-step or else you won't get to the next proceedings..  update size is 1.07GB

Zzzzzzz....

if your Lan cable is plugged then it will automatically use the Lan Internet instead of WiFi, you will need to enter your Google account so that Google play store would be active,  you would notice that compatible games that you purchased on your Android phone can also be installed on your shield. For me the update only took 8 minutes on Pldt fibr 50mbps so I did not get on the Zzzzzzz part Hehe. Also if you would be using Amazon videos you would need to turn off location setting for its icon to show on the dashboard.

^ yes sir, haha..  it took about +20mins to update, then it restarted 2x.. I realized it took my google account from my phone -- I said "duh??" perhaps since we've bought an Android device means it expects us to have a Google account.  so what if the consumer is a first time Android user (who knows if Apple-user pala siya) =))

anyway after that, the very 1st time I saw the NVidia start-up logo and the Google/Android start-up logo and there it is!  the main screen =))

I turned-off auto-update and opted to be notified.  checked others like display/audio configuration and some more...

- check if this has an internal/built-in media player                                                               ---- yes, it played my files but there's nothing more to it
  - check with 1 4K HDR movie via HDD with its USB                                                             ---- yes, it played 4K HDR & 1080p either AVC or HEVC
     - check if HDR comes up                                                                                                   ---- yes, my TV notified me the HDR feature turned on
     - check if ATMOS is passed-thru                                                                                       ---- i was connected with my TV only, so NO
  - check with some FHD movies via HDD with its USB                                                          ---- yes
     - check if ATMOS is passed-thru
     - check if DTS:X is passed-thru
- connect with Wi-Fi and install 1 or 2 Android games                                                         ---- yes, done
- install ES File Explorer                                                                                                          ---- yes, done
  - copy emu's and roms to its local storage                                                                          ---- yes, done

so now with Kodi 17:
- configured video & audio (most especially) and it worked like a breeze =))
- changed skin from Estuary to Confluence -- I really liked this default skin from 16.1
- played all VIDEO formats: 4K, 4K HDR, 1080p and 720p seems to be better upscaled, AVC (8bit & 10bit), HEVC (8bit & 10bit)
- played all AUDIO codecs
  - ATMOS, DTS:X passed-thru without any glitches

also installed 1 android game (Minions Rush hehe), as per quick test, all controller buttons are working fine

to be fair, I did encounter a little hiccup -- NSATV to DENON AVR had a short HDMI handshake issue... note the same HDMI cable is used during my initial testing with NSATV which I connected it with the TV first...

this hiccup was about the display on my TV going on/off every after few seconds.  but I just let them be.  though its interrupting me during my set-up/configurations with Kodi which I could have finished quicker =))  what else I did was to restart NSATV and turned off/on the Denon AVR.  and after that, display is stable =))

to be continued for the emu/roms and maybe just 1 NVidia game, soon =))

Yun lang may bayad talaga,  eto quoted from Google search "The service can deliver up to 60 frames per second at 1080p, but Nvidia recommends a downstream speed of at least 50 Mbps for that. The recommended speed drops to 20 Mbps for a stream of 720p at 60 fps, and 10 Mbps is the minimum for GeForce Now"

haha yun lang & seems the same with Netflix online streaming requirement..

oh well, back to my basic needs then =)) the only reasons I've opted for this and pulled the trigger are:
1. best NMT for offline movie watching -- if not for ATMOS/DTS:X, I'm already fine with TV's built-in media player
2. my kids are starting to love Android gaming on TV -- if it's not because of gamepad controller being difficult to match with other Android TV boxes, I should be fine with my WeTek
3. I don't want too many devices at hand, hence THIS NVidia! will really give what I'll need in just a single box:
    -- total satisfaction with offline movies
    -- Android game console with a dedicated (and fool-proof) game controller

if ever I get that Fibr account, I won't hesitate to do online streaming and NVidia games, too!

nice! thanks for sharing this update info..  -- i set mine not to auto-update =))

there are so many issues pa pala... and glad many are fixed in just this single update.

like the 2017 controller, there already is a battery level reporting, so this one is also a nice-to-have:
-•   Delivers v1.05 firmware update for the new SHIELD TV (16GB) when paired with SHIELD remote. Update fixes issues with battery level reporting.

though they promised of a 1-year battery life on the remote, right?

there should be a removable battery on the new remote, sir... you'll notice a very small screw on the bottom edge of the remote unit.  as the new remote is very thin, they've put there a flat (like a coin) battery... =))

unlike the separately sold remote for the previous Shield model, it is an internal rechargeable one via a micro USB cable.

pero hindi luma nabili mo kasi "bundled-free" yung flat remote tapos nka-Android Nougat na main unit.... btw, sa soft protective casing (hindi styro) niya inside the box, provisioned yung lagayan ng flat remote, tama?  If yes, it means new packaging for the Shield Pro din ginawa nila on 2017 model.

may headphone jack naman yung bagong shield controller, so okay lang...

yung old shield controller ba meron din headphone jack?  so meaning, if you have both old remote & old controller, sabay gumagana at sabay rin tag-isa kayo ng kalaro/kasama mo manuod ng headphones?  If yes, maganda nga =)

I will also buy an extra 2017 shield controller, then magagawa dapat na sabay tag-1 headphones.. hmmm gastos na nman ito haha
Title: Re: Nvidia shield console
Post by: mhacman on Feb 24, 2017 at 04:17 PM
speaking of 2017 shield controllers...

remote controller likes:
  -- manipis at mukhang matibay
  -- hindi madulas sa kamay
  -- metal alloy yata yung likod kasi malamig siya hawakan, mainit kapag naiwan ko sa ibabaw ng AVR =))
  -- di parin bawas battery level according sa battery level report ng shield unit
      -- I'm using this every day, pan-right/left, forward/rewind while watching movies

remote controller dislikes:
  -- until now, I get a mistake pressing the mic button rather than the center navigation button
  -- volume slider is very sensitive (though I disabled volume control on the remote) so a notification pops up on TV each time we accidentally touch this area

gamepad controller likes:
  -- very ergonomic, like an XBox One remote
      -- quite lightweight at hindi nkaka-ngalay
  -- I haven't re-charged it even once, and battery level according to battery level report sa main unit says still almost full-bar
      -- unlike PS DualShock 4 (used by my 4-yr old son) we charge it full 1 every 2 days -- Sony Android TV pop-ups a notification when battery is depleting
  -- very responsive
 
gamepad controller dislikes:
  -- mas malaki siya sa PS DualShock 4

speaking of 2017 shield controllers...

remote controller likes:
  -- manipis at mukhang matibay
  -- hindi madulas sa kamay
  -- metal alloy yata yung likod kasi malamig siya hawakan, mainit kapag naiwan ko sa ibabaw ng AVR =))
  -- di parin bawas battery level according sa battery level report ng shield unit
      -- I'm using this every day, pan-right/left, forward/rewind while watching movies

remote controller dislikes:
  -- until now, I get a mistake pressing the mic button rather than the center navigation button
  -- volume slider is very sensitive (though I disabled volume control on the remote) so a notification pops up on TV each time we accidentally touch this area

gamepad controller likes:
  -- very ergonomic, like an XBox One remote
      -- quite lightweight at hindi nkaka-ngalay
  -- I haven't re-charged it even once, and battery level according to battery level report sa main unit says still almost full-bar
      -- unlike PS DualShock 4 (used by my 4-yr old son) we charge it full 1 every 2 days -- Sony Android TV pop-ups a notification when battery is depleting
  -- very responsive
 
gamepad controller dislikes:
  -- mas malaki siya sa PS DualShock 4
  -- nothing more of note

From a family man  point of view.  Did the NSATV upgrade from your usual vanilla media player bring alot of new things when it comes to family bonding and time?

As it suppose to be an all in one box for gaming and music + plex server.

yes! very much indeed, sir! though at some point (and as expected with new devices), there are slight learning curves of its usage.

my personal reason in acquiring this is to have a media player and game console in-one.  and am really glad I found it in Shield.  makes me think this becomes the cheapest -- if we talk about getting BOTH (1) the best and most powerful media player (2) combined with a game console.

with games, I just want the classic old NES/SNES ones and I'm glad that they're available for FREE via emulators.  for the new and more advanced ones, I'll leave it to my kids if they'll be interested when they discover them =))  I might even support to pay for them.. =))

with movies & music -- I'll stay traditional for now.  download from source and store/collect them on our external HDDs.  we can't stream yet since we are limited with low internet speed account.

however with Plex streaming, I liked the version pre-installed on LG TV with our laptops as the Plex Media Server -- it's accessed via WiFi.  playing 1080p and 720p contents are flawless.  Only 4K contents where we experience some video stuttering.  but it's understandable since we're on a WiFi band.

while the Plex app pre-installed in Shield used as a media player acts differently and it requires more bandwidth even with the same 1080p/720p contents found in our laptop's Plex Media Server -- which I don't understand.

Nvidia Shield TV PRO (2017) review

I am an owner of Apple TV for 4 yrs now I have the Apple TV 3rd Gen and 4th Gen.  My reason for switching to NVIDIA is because yung 4K movies ko is hindi na playable sa Apple TV. Based sa mga review Nvidia Shield Pro is the best 4k media player today. So I ordered online (Feb 4) and got it last Friday (Feb 17). The setup is very straight forward minus yung 2 times ka mag upgrade ng SHIELD Experience OS niya in 1 day.

Issues:

NVIDIA Shield Android TV flashing line – This is triggered when you switch-on refresh rate settings on PLEX & Kodi. I am using LG UH8500.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0_5Coi4StgM

Mounted NAS Shared Drive disappears after a reboot or restart.

Verdict

A bit pricey compare to other NMT but it is worth the buy.  It can play almost anything you throw at it. From 1080p to 4k/60fps movies , 4k Youtube and also 4k Netflix. I used it for movies and tv series watching using PLEX and KODI. It is also a full Plex Media Server meaning you can run PLEX without any PC/NAS. It can transcode/decode any audio/video format you like as long as you are connected to a gigabit router or dual band wifi router.
The unit is very heavy compare to the standard model and to my apple tv 4th gen maybe because it is the 500 GB model.

With NVIDIA Shield Pro , You're getting the most future proof set top box today that can play any media and the device is very fast considering the Processor is a NVIDIA Tegra X1 and RAM is 3GB.

Things to be aware off.

1 500 gb pro hd issue. Signs of a failing hd is pixelated recommendation row.
2. Hissing power supply which nvidia is willing to replace by sending yiu a replacement if you have the issue.

3.  Game controller sync issue. Check thr controller is connectiion is stable.


Ask adonis about. Streaming contrent. He is using a vpn so he has access to everything. If you do not have a VPN subscription some content eont be available.

There is no issue with downloadable games, i cannot say anything about game stream  service since i do not game much.

wala ako issue sa hissing sound, 2017 16GB NSATV owner here..

to know if 16GB 2015, mas malaki gamepad, no flat remote (or mabuti kung meron, then ang sabi USB chargeable siya so may mini USB port dapat).. meron ON button sa Nvidia logo

to know if 16GB 2017, kabaligtaran ng 16GB 2015

if 500GB yung ibebenta sayo, smaller 2017 gamepad controller + 2015 flat remote and kasama

My Shield Pro just arrived from Amazon last Wednesday. Was surprised that Kodi didn't come pre-installed, so I had to download it from Playstore, along with VLC and ES File Explorer

Downloading the Shield 5.1 experience was quite annoying. It's a 1.08 gigabyte file, and it took me over 105 minutes on a 10 mbps connection

Kodi is not the preferred media center software for NSATV.

NSATV owners use SPMC, a  NSATV  customized fork of kodi.  The Developer of SPMC is the previous Android maintainer of KODI and he uses the NSATV as his main developement box. Actually SPMC is specifically targeted for NSATV but supports other boxes that has amlogic chips.

Can I use a wireless mouse as a remote? I tied a wired mouse at the office, but I had difficulty navigating.  There are also 2 kinds of wireless mouse- Bluetooth and the other one with the small usb thingy to be attached to the unit, which one should I go? Although, I prefer the latter (not the Bluetooth version due to battery concerns), any suggestion?... Since my 2015 NSATV is a 16gb version, I have read somewhere that if I have an external hdd attached to it, the hdd would be unreadable to the PC?

Sirs, one reason for buying the NSATV is for my kids to play using it. Not really for me since I am not into it. My question is: My kids have Steam accounts as well as Blizzard account, would they be able to play them in NSATV? Although Nvidia have dedicated games, it appears that I need to have fast internet connection, which I do not have due to location here in Cebu (no fiber yet in my area). I have only a 3mbps connection... So again, would they be able to use their Steam and Blizzard accounts?

An IR usb dongle based remote  is more foolproof. Although you need line of sight to some respect to have it working. 

I think what you want/need  is an Airmouse. An airmouse does not need a flat surface to use. Just wave it in the air after you have calibrated it.

I highly recommend this airmouse.   It works flawlessly  with shield  android tv. All buttons are working, back, home, context menu.

http://www.lazada.com.ph/c120-t10-fly-air-mouse-24ghz-rechargeable-wireless-keyboard-remotecontrol-for-android-tv-box-pc-5518344.html

This is the specific one that works 99% with NSATV. There is something/similar that looks the same but the bottom three buttons is not android  back, home, context menu and should be avoided.

It is a air mouse and keyboard combo with the bonus of turning off the air mouse function if you want it purely as a directional control. Sort of rare for a air mouse. Most air mouse automatically wakes up/turns on the air mouse function after you turn it off.


If i am not mistaken. NSATV will format your HDD if you use it as adoptive storage. Which means NSATV will treat your HDD as part of system storage space.

It will not format it if it just used as a  external storage. I could be wrong though.

Steam integration is one of the feature of the update 5.1.   Steam and blizzard games are usually PC games. If you want to use your steam account you need to use gamestream  using your Desktop PC and cast the games to your shield/tv.


Games the NSATV have are PC games that have been ported to the android OS. If you want to play PC games to your TV, use the gamestream feature and cast the games on your PC to your TV/shield  and play it with the NSATV controller.

Your desktop pc though needs to have a Nvidia geforce card.

You need to check if the games are supported by gamestream. Although the list is long, you need to check it.

just plug-in your usb external HDD... and use it as source to play your movies.  it's safe not get formatted by NVidia as it's found within the Setting-->Storage-->---

same purpose as well getting the NSATV, for me to use it as media player (esp Atmos/DTS:X pass-through) both via KODI/SPMC -- which I'm planning to uninstall one of them

and for game playing for me & kids -- though (FREE) Android games only + I installed emulator to play with some classic Nintendo games like Mario  ;)

I just tried playing a 3D movie with SPMC, it could decode/pass-through 3D format   ^-^

Disable location services if you get to boot.

Try unplugging Ethernet cable while booting.


Try other TVs. It has been an issue  with tvs, like I had one before.


My guess it is location services. It is a common issue for Owners who are not in the US,

Hehe, the Shield was just rebooting. Searching the net revealed that resetting it to factory specs may take 2 or more hours.

Since you have an AMD Video card. You can try Moonlight. It is an alternative but I am not sure how it works.

  You cannot install PC games into your NSATV unless it has a android version of the game.

If it has an android version of the PC games you own in steam or blizzard.    I am not sure if you have to buy the android version on top the PC version you own.

Thanks for your reply. Anyway, Moonlight appears to still require an NVIDIA VC in the PC. The only advantage of using moonlight is to do away the monthly subscription....

if you own games in steam and want to stream it directly to nvidia shield there is no need for monthly subscription. you must have an nvidia graphics card capable of gamestreaming technology. the hardware of your pc will handle the transcoding and beam it so it can be viewed on your large screen tv connected to the shield. if you pc is high end then the graphics quality will also be top notch, also be sure to use the ethernet port instead of wifi to have a more stable stream.

you would only need subscription if you will use nvidia gamestream, the difference is that only certain games advertised by nvidia can take advantage of the service. nvidia servers will be the one to do the transcoding and your nvidia shield would accept the stream directly from the nvidia servers, which mean you must have a super fast internet speed and good latency. i have a pldt 50mbps fibr connection and the stream is flawless. think of it as watching netflix, but instead of a movie, you are playing instead.

The reason why some apps are not available sa playstore is because the Shield is running a flavor of Android called Android TV, it has it's own classification for apps. Hence apps that are not designed for TV (meaning not remote friendly) will by default be not available.

For sideloading, best talaga if you just visit youtube and search for "nvidia shield sideload" so you will learn how to. Much faster than typing it all out here.

search apk salamin. But instead salami should be in english. And get the apk


You need to install a file manager to browse to where you downloaded the apk.

You need to enable install for unknown sources under settings-about if I am not mistaken.


Android TV was made to address the issue of  apps designed for touch screen devices being run on non touch devices like TVs. Android TVs interface was designed for regular tvs to large screen tvs and  projectors. 

If you have a app designed for phones and tables and you need to run it on a  non touch devices. You might need an Air mouse to simulate taps and clicks.

I've enabled pass through on both the Shield settings and Kodi/ SPMC. But my receiver still displays PCM. Only Dolby Digital seems to be getting through. All other audio formats are displayed in my receiver (Yamaha 677)  as PCM

But when I click the Info button, the proper audio format is displayed.

That is true.

Clicking is not only the problem. Positioning where to click is another thing. Some apps are done by lazy devs that did not even bother  putting tab orders to there apps when using the positional keys. Even if you use the positional keys  it might cycle to some UI elements but not all because they did not put a organized tab orders.

It just totally assume that you are using a touch interface if they are developing an app that is for a device that has touch interface.

what you're encountering is KODI/SPMC issue not NSATV.  I guess you're fine after setting up NSATV to passthrough = yes.

questions:  do you connect NSATV direct to AVR via HDMI (you should be) then AVR to TV via HDMI ARC? and what is your speaker set-up, 5.1 or 7.1?

my observations:
- if your movie source is TrueHD/DTS-HD MA (both are 8ch) and if you're only using 5.1 speakers, then the AVR will downmix it, it might be the reason PCM is indicated in AVR
- do not use S/PDIF cable from TV to AVR as it's only up to 6ch

if you're using full 7.1 or only 5.1 on your Yammy 677,
- ensure you have set the proper # of speakers in Kodi/SPMC
- System-->Settings-->System-->Audio
   - Settings Level: Expert
   - Audio Output device: Android, RAW, Audiotrack
   - # of Channels: 5.1 or 7.1
   - Allow Passthrough: Clicked
   - Passthrough Output device: Android, RAW, Audiotrack
   - enable all codecs capable of Yammy 677

I am new to this. so please be patient with my noob questions. I have read somewhere about PPSSPP, is it ok to use this to play games using our Nvidia Shield TV? Is it complicated?

PPSSPP works quite well. If I am not mistaken it is officially on Android TV play store.  It was available on android tv store when NSATV was the only officialy available android TV box.

It is direct wifi. Supposed to be less latency when playing compared to Bluetooth.


The 2 different controller was asked before on the shield tv forum. I cannot recall what the answer was
 But most probably yes but i could be wrong.

They are running different OS. One is for phones the other is for a full blown tv Os.

Run a benchmark to know for sure.  UI responsiveness is only a part of it. Especially if they are running different OS.   

Also double tap home button when you are using shield to kill running apps on the back. I had at one time. Spmc, spotify, crunchyroll, cnet, youtube and some other apps tunning at the back. This will slow down your box.

Yes. Minix OS or other android boxes were using Vanilla Phone android before Android TV OS was released. Nvidia Shield TV as far as I know is the first box to adopt android TV OS. That is the reason when the Shield TV was new. There were really a few apps available since they only want Android TV OS users to only install Android TV OS ports/version of android phone apps.  This will enhance the user experience since it will have a more coherent UI.

This was also  the reason why they disabled the mouse trackpad functionality of our Shield controllers.  Google forced the issue and said that Android TV OS should have a uniform way of navigating.  To be more appliance like more than being phone like.

I finally figured out why HDR isn't working on my rig. Turns out my Yamaha AVX-677 receiver isn't capable of passing through HDR.

Connected the Nvidia Shield directly to the UH7700 HDMI port and it showed the HDR notification. So my workaround is to just use the optical out port to enjoy 5.1 sound.

Bibili na nga lang ako ng HDR-capable na 4K-ready receiver hehe

ayun!  there's another piece of the puzzle pala -- AVR...  if you're not keen on ATMOS/DTS:X, stay with your yammy 677.  if you're only keen with TrueHD & DTS-HD MA, use HDMI ARC from tv to AVR -- this should pass-thru upto 8ch audio.

if the former, goodluck hunting for 4K HDR reciever!  =))

You will need a reflective flat surface to use an ordinary wireless mouse.

An air mouse is like a magic wand. That you wave in the air to make the cursor go left or right. Down or up. Much easier and convenient since it is also a Keyboard + remote controller.

I have not seen a wireless mouse that has a keyboard and also as a remote.

1.
The games that you can fully download are the games you pay with your Google account as far as I know like any other apps that you buy from the google playstore. So you do not need to be a member of the Geforce now Service.


The games that you cannot download and being ran on the cloud are the games that Nvidia have on their Geforce now service.


2. Before downloading the game. Read the description. The description says or indicate that the game supports multiple controllers.

Ok. Thanks to this forum, I was able to find a Nvidia Shield for myself.

Have tried it for a couple of hours and I can say even though it's supposed to be similar to Android TV boxes, it does have some differences. I have the 2015 model so no remote but I'm managing to get by using the Android TV remote app for my smartphone as well as HDMI CEC enabled so I can control it using my Samsung Smart TV's remote.

Thanks. I wouldn't have bought it new that's for sure.

Offhand, here's the Major differences vs. the XiaoMi Mi Box (current firmware) which also uses Android TV OS;

- support for frame rate switching like 59.94/23.976

Google na lang for those who don't know why it's significant. Nakaka nosebleed i-explain ha ha ha.

- Nougat specific advancements to Android TV such as App Switching & PIP for Live Channels.

I've been able to get these on the Mi Box but the firmware is officially still not released.

- Mounting NAS drives

This is significant. Allows one to mount not just drives attached via USB ports but also NAS type network drives. Mucho easier for those who have existing NAS (Synology, QNap etc) content. No wonder Plex users love the Nvidia Shield.

- Amazon Prime Video pre-installed.

This isn't possible using the Xiaomi at the moment. I dunno why though coz' iFlix was available on all.

- Rootable.

All though I have not tried it. Lots of information out there how to do it for the Nvidia Shield TV. Personally, I only root the chinese boxes as my comfort zone allows me to be brave enough to risk bricking them. This one... no way muna :)

The Mi Box has a locked (and encrypted bootloader) and there's never been a base firmware recovery for them so no way to root the Mi Box.

- Improved HDMI CeC control

On the Mi Box, I could never power up the box and include the TV/AVR (I could power off everything though). On this one possible to just power up the shield and it powers up AVR and TV.

- Nvidia

Well Duh? This is a gaming rig. The bulk of the cost is putting together a box with the graphics horsepower of Gaming PCs. Although I am NOT a gamer, the excessive processing power just ensures the box runs media fast (really fast) so decoding any video and audio codec currently known is possible without any hiccups (as long as your lan/internet can keep up).

The controller is also considered "Pro" level quality so that means mas mahal talaga components used.

Nvidia shield basically uses location services to determine the Wifi channels that works/allowed in your country.

If I remembered it correctly. Wifi issues was being fixed by disabling  location services. Or manually configuring the wifi channels in your router.

Post by: Waxx on Aug 01, 2017 at 07:52 AM
YES, sir waxx =)


i was able to do some minor tweaking on nsatv spmc to enable it to play hdr media files (not streaming)... as for netflix, it does stream automatic hdr when it detects that the display is hdr ready (verified with b6p oled) but ayaw nya dun sa hdr supported pj (4k only nakikita nya).. so im still reading about and looking for tweaks... changed hdmi cables na and everything, di talaga naghahandshake si netflix sa pj mabuti (no hdr)

Hello need help sa shield. Di ako maka-output ng DTSHD/TrueHD sa yamaha receiver. Kapag nagpplay ako ng movie through:

1) SPMC, video will play but would only show PCM on the receiver and no sound coming out.
2) Kodi, video will play, there is sound but only in PCM.

I've already enabled iec passthrough and the audio codecs. Wala naman akong problem sa older yamaha receiver ko. Thanks in Advance

Post by: ♡ lvcdg23™ ✌ on Sep 22, 2017 at 07:38 PM

Have you tried the stock video player sir?

Or try this setting on the SPMC

Enable 'expert' in the settings menu. Then, make the following changes:

Audio output device = Android, RAW Passthrough
Number of channels = 7.1 [your receiver should be able to handle this input regardless of your actual speaker configuration]
Output configuration = Best Match
Stereo upmix = off
Maintain original volume on downmix = on
Boost centre channel when downmixing = 0 dB
Resample quality = High
Keep audio devices alive = 10 Minutes [this will prevent your AVR from going to sleep]
Enable audio DSP processing = off
Enable passthrough = on
Passthrough output device = Android, RAW Passthrough
Title: Re: Nvidia shield console
Post by: xb24 on Sep 22, 2017 at 08:07 PM
^yes sir ganyan din settings ko dati. Same PCM lalabas. =/

There are rare times na ma-pplay naman niya yung DTS-HD/Truehd pero most of the time PCM with no sound.

Ganito lumalabas sa display ng receiver kapag nagstart ako magplay ng movie through SPMC:

Decoder off
PCM
Decoder off
either PCM w/ no audio or pag nakatsamba DTSHD/Truehd

1. How does this differ from the 149usd direct from nvidia?
2. How will you work out warranty claims when that time comes?
3. Does shield support multiple HDDS? I'm planning to attach a Probox with 4pcs pf 4tb.

Thanks

The Shield works with multiple HDDs. 

I connected two 4-bay Proboxes to my console and it’s able to read them without a hitch.

However, my problem is that my unit seems very sluggish. Takes too long to boot, respond to controller buttons or launch apps.  And I occasionally get the “Leanback Launcher isn’t working”message. Apparently it happens only to Pro variants, which is what I have.  Tried doing a hard reset but the symptoms would re-occur  :-\

Does it have something to do being connected to the 4 bay probox?

Or is it because your Shield is a pro and have a mechanical HD? I read people having HD problems with their Pros. I hope it is not the case.

Is your unit still under warranty?

Well, considering if bought your Nvidia Shield from US and had it shipped through ShippingCart baka pwede ka nila assist if any issues arises with your Shield.
But you'll be paying shipping fees and other duties for the return..  Baka meron pang ibang ways na mas mura..

Yes. If you want to claim warranty. You need a CONUS return shipping address if they are sending the shield back to you.

They will honor warranty for buyers from non supported countries as long as you can give them a CONUS shipping address.  Maybe JAC or LBS shop can be used.

I have  bo tried arranging with online chat tech support if they can send the Shield back to the Philippines using DHL and you foot the bill for the return shipping.

Yeah saw it this morning when I powered up. My trust in Nvidia is safe unlike other Android TV gadgets whose updates are sorely delayed most of the time whether it be TVs or even the Mi Box.

I updated mine this morning too.. I was surprised that the download file was only 19mb.
It restarted and updated..

After updating mine. I was greeted by a black screen with a exclamation point saying "Your device is corrupted. It can't be trusted and may not work properly"😪 I tried to factory reset via recovery and its a no go. I was able recover it using the recovery image 6.2 from nvidia via fastboot using usb A male to male cable.. I was abit hesitant to use a usb 2.0 cable since I saw alot of guides saying I need a USB 3.0. I gave it ago anyway, since I've been flashing different android boxes with this cable.
after successfully restoring my shield I tried to update it again to 6.3 and now it shows the size of the update is 1.2GB.
when it restarted. I got a different message again. But now its different. it says to unlock my bootloader.
(https://i.imgur.com/NuJ6R4Al.png)

went back to fast boot and re-locked the bootloader.
right now everything is back from what it was.  :)

Now i know that I can just use a USB 2.0 cable to recover my shield.
Because of what happened I'm now thinking of updating to pre rooted developer images for my shield.
Not really sure who's at fault here, but now i think its the OTA servers fault that game me a 19MB update instead of the 1.2GB update.
I still trust Nvidia, all the support documentation, recovery image and adb/fastboot drivers are readily available. I was able to revive my shield.  :)

Mine's a 2015 din pero bought new controller (for google assistant) and remote since 2015 model had the remote as an option back then when first introduced.

I also use Mi Boxes for other rooms and sa office pero iba pa rin Shield sa bilis and compatibility with nearly everything.

That's why I clean it every month to ensure the vents are free of dirt and lint to ensure it's running cool.

Some even use this rig to mine cryptocurrencies ha ha ha.

ang alam ko yung pro is based sa original na design which has a micro sd slot pero i dont think na kailangan mo pa yon kasi 500gb naman internal niya. yung standard ngayon is walang micro sd and 16gb lang. pero kung normal na streaming and play ng movies via USB. i'll get the standard one.

Mga sir. Inquire ko lang po what is bang for the buck yung shield statndar 2017 or yung shield pro po? lastly po any idea sa price and where to source it locally? I'm on the hunt para po sa send TV box po and Nividia shield is on top of my list po, Just need to know which of the 2 edition is bang for the buck po. Thanks po in advance

if you really want to get the cheapest shield then wait for sales sa mga online stores like amazon. got mine last black friday sale for $169.  you can use shippingcart or johhnyair.
as per checking nasa 14.5k  and local price niya dito like benstore and Olx.
kahit 16gb lang yung standard na Nvidia Shield you can add a USB 3.0 flash drive and set it as internal/adaptive storage.
yung akin 32GB USB 3.0 lang and kahit marami na akong apps installed. i still have around 15gb free.
you can also set external hard drives as internal storage but make sure its USB 3.0

Guys, nag research ako ng NMT ngayon and it seems this is the most solid. Questions lang po:
1. Can this play kaya downloaded files like around 50+gb?  This will be connected directly via HDMI Premium Certified to Denon x1300 AVR for atmos and 4k HDR from AVR to TV.

2. Can you use external 3.5's like mybook WD 4tb? (separate power supply and usb 3.0)

3. This is more of convenience pero can I transfer files from my macbook directly to the attached storage (like in no. 2 above) via wi-fi?
Title: Re: Nvidia shield console
Post by: ET414 on Apr 24, 2018 at 02:24 PM
1.) I use Kodi to play 50GB bluray ISO. I can play the movie but I’m still trying to figure out how to access the special features.

2. Yes

3. I think you will need to reformat the  external hard drive and set it as the Shield’s storage drive for you to be able to do this.

I’m itching to buy this one since i’m curious with the product, i already have an apple tv 4k and the tv is an android tv, do i get a better experience or better feature with the shield than android tv? Also i read it can record live tv shows via an app, do you guys use it here in Manila is it compatible? Thanks in advance :) so far the only advantage i can think of is it can run a plex server and directly place my hard drives and the recording features

Also just to add, manila users are able to use the ok google functionality, including hands free via the remote control? thanks in advance :)

it's been few weeks ago when I started to notice that my 2017 Shield controller doesn't charge anymore.  i have to put it plugged-in for me to use it.  quite depressing as it becomes a 'wired' controller now for power.  I sit 8ft away from the Shield but we have a socket beside my couch anyway

luckily yesterday, I was able to find out how to pair my PS4 Dualshock controller with the Shield =))  it works perfectly except for the missing Home button function.  I rather just have to press Back button function several times depending on where I am to go back to the Home screen.

able to save/re-use an existing controller so I wouldn't need buy a new one, which I find too expensive. =))

HAHAHA i found the Home button function on the PS4 controller now = PS button

I had the TV remote app for iOS and have tried it.  problem is, I have 2 WiFi's at home so upon turn on of my Shield, I would know which Wi-Fi it connected.  so I wouldn't know to which WiFi my iPhone should connect to (hehe) I stopped using it and just used the 'wire-powered' controller

thanks, sir!

oh that's very good.  Prayer answered hehehe  because I think during Oreo update when I discovered the long press of Back button to access Settings --> Sleep.  Then to turn off, you have to go to About which takes several button presses more.

now with update 7.1, they offered both Restart & Power Off right there!

try ko nuon pa paano ma-pair si DS4 sa Shield pero wala sa internet.  di kasi mag-pair kung nka-On lang si DS4 controller eh.  pwede siya mag-pair ng nka-On sa mga Sony devices (TV at PS4 console) lang.  ayun, may nag-post din later on how to set DS4 controller in pairing-mode.  kahapon ko lang nakita when I'm tried to search again hehe

just upgraded to the shield experience 7.1 after a few weeks of holding back and im liking it!

so far all the features i need are working. the shortcuts to go to sleep and go to settings are so helpful. and the shield is so snappy compared to 6.0

but ganun pa din colorspace, manual pa rin magpalit if you watch HDR vs non HDR material.

I suggest don't get the small form factor flash drives like the sandisk ultra fit and others. It tends to heat up easily and cant dissipate heat easily when its directly connected to the shield for a long period of time.
Since 120GB SSD drives are cheap right now its also a good alternative. just get a usb3.0 to sata cable to go along with it or and usb 3.0 enclosure.

It depends bro sa mga apps na i-download mo.
Ako kasi old shield tv na 16gb. 32gb lang na micro sd lang kasi puro pang play lang ng movies yung apps ko like Archos, SPMC, etc.
If same lang tayo ng pag gagamitan, i suggest na go for the SSD

if you'll store apps and game data into the memory extension, it will run as long as you're using it.  best for SSD, no moving parts and should be more durable and life should be longer

yes, find a USB 3.0 case for that as well.

note that you will be formatting the SSD per Shield's external memory.  so you may not be able to use it elsewhere (except for computer, I think)

It really depends on your needs. Sa akin almost a year ko na gamit yung 32Gb USB 3.0 flash drive ko with my Shield and di ko mapuno since mostly streaming apps lang laman.
if your planning on using your Shield as a plex server pwede ka gumamit ng 1TB and up for external drive and 1 flash drive to extend your internal storage.
if you format your 1TB as an internal storage its going to be encrypted and can no longer be used interchangeably with other devices like your computer.
kung ako papapiliin mo I'll go with a WD Green 120GB for Php1.3k + orico 3.0 enclosure for Php350-400.

im using oled. pero matagal na kasing issue yun ng shield na di pa rin nila ma resolve up to now.

HDR content is bt.2020 and SD content is rec. 709, pag naka bt.2020 colorspace washed out yung colors. kaya people manually adjust the colorspace depending on what material they watch.

pero di ka naman pihikan di mo mapapansin yung difference hehe
Title: Re: Nvidia shield console
Post by: mhacman on Dec 16, 2018 at 01:06 AM
^ thanks, sir!

I may be naïve yet.  I don't truly understand how to interpret a washed out color.  so far with all my 4K HDR BT2020 movie downloads, I'm all wowed by them.  colors are great, clear and detailed.  picturesque scenes are more appreciated in 4K HDR rather in 1080p whether 8bit or HEVC 10bit.

my Shield setting is the recommended one: 3840x2160 59.940 YUV4.2.0 10Bit BT2020.  it is set and forget.  I do not change regardless of what resolution and color space of the material I watch.

I hope to see a washed out color to know how it looks like and understand/learn something more.

maybe other owners could share their observations as well?  tia!

watch a non-HDR movie and set it to RGB rec.709, and compare it to the default. see if you find a difference.

I just did try this -- 4K 60Hz then HDMI set to 3840x2160 RGB 8Bit Rec.709

I want to perceive a difference, but forcing my mind if I could see any:
- watching 1080P 8bit seems same as the recommended setting
- watching 1080P 10bit seems same as the recommended setting
- watching 4K SDR seems same as the recommended setting
- watching 4K HDR I see only a bit fade in color -- this is where I could perceive a difference by a bit only

oh well, I need to train my eyes more perhaps =)).  setting it back to the recommended.  for me it's good whatever I feed it with...

wala ng 139 na shield, 169 na...bakit po nagmura last week?

Amazon also fluctuates its pricing. Today, it is $149. Quick. hehehe

Anyway, my initial thoughts on the shield:

1. I got this primarily to play trueHD/dtsX/atmos mkv movies. The samsung smart TV cannot output trueHD via ARC to the receiver and the xbox is so inconsistent in playing media files.
2. Boot time/PQ/SQ, well as expected is top notch.
3. Remote is cool (compared to the cumbersome xbox controller hehe)


Issues
1. Still no atmos support on netflix app.  (currently using xbox for netflix-atmos viewing)
2. Annoying mic button on the remote and it is not working lol
3. It's autosleep triggers the AVR to turn off which in turn turns the TV off, even if Im using the TV with other sources.  I still have to figure out where in the chain to disable this HDMI power control ARC thing.
4. If mag brown out and power is restored, shield automatically turns ON, then turns ON the AVR then the TV.

very good pricing for USD149.  is this without the dpad controller, right?  I think it's ok not to get the dpad if your not into gaming.  at least NVidia gave its customers a choice.

for your negative findings, it's the CEC control that's the culprit-- not the ARC.  turn it off on all -- Shield, TV & AVR.  then they will need to be separately turned on/off.

I'm not at home right now so I can't confirm how's my exact set up.  this what happens on my end:
- I turn on individual switches in this order: TV, AVR then Shield -- these are power switches only of our surge suppressor
- TV is on stand by, AVR on stand by and Shield will turn on (2017 model doesn't have a power switch on its unit)
- once Shield starts to operate/boot up, it will turn on the TV automatically. this take around 3seconds. then the TV will detect a signal from the AVR so it'll automatically be set to display the Shield's signal from Android boot-up logo until the homescreen
- my AVR will still remain on stand by -- btw, I have set my AVR on HDMI stand-by mode and I chose the HDMI port where Shield is connected (Stream Box HDMI 4, I think)
- by this time, I can proceed to use the Shield (play games, watch movie using the TV's internal speaker)
- I turn on the AVR manually only when I want surround sound or when watching HD-audio movies (which AVR is a must!)

after watching and when turning them off, I turn-off or put Shield to Sleep first. the AVR remains on and TV remains on.  Next to manually turn off is the TV then AVR also turns off at the same time. Then I switch off all of the 3 on the surge suppressor.

I hope they fix the part where you just tell your google home hub to open netflix video on shield and it automatically opens, so far the feature appears to be broken read on many forums it also doesnt work or may be location dependent. But my echo spot can do that with shield, just wondering why google assistant (using google home hub) cannot.

so far, I hear no complaints from my kids -- sa mga games nila   >:D

as for lags = 0.  same response like using the orig controller

sa Kodi lang hindi gumagana -- baka dahil sa config ko sa settings ng Kodi.  hindi ko na magalaw kasi naka-tabi na yung Shield controller ko eh

gamit ko movie player is SPMC = no issue sa lahat ng buttons

on handling, medyo mas maliit at mas pabilog. mas nahahawakan ng mga kids ko I think mas comfortable sila dito

other compatible game controllers as I know are:
 - XBOX -- wala na available yung sa unang XBOX controller.  mura pa naman ito dati
 - Logitech wireless/wired

Advantage of Apple TV is that it can do Netflix Dolby Atmos (on Dolby Digital Plus) and I also prefer its Picture Quality over the Shield

Advantage of Shield is its flexibility, you can play MKVs via usb and bitstreaming lossless audio. Can also bitstream lossless audio via NAS and PLEX.

have updated mine to Android P -- not much usable update with the previous Android Oreo.  but I've checked for anything that has changed especially those within the Settings... it became more simplified as some were grouped together.

on the outset, we also got 1 click shorter when turning the unit off.  I was actually dismayed of that extra button press in Oreo version.  glad that they listened to the users and removed that last and useless one  >:D

am just as happy and contented with the way NVIDIA efforts for update even a 3yr-old Shield model.  it got updated with 2 major OS upgrades: from Nougat to Oreo to P =)

Updates are really hit of miss.

I have updated my shield and acted semi bricked reboots every 15 min.  Factory resets, changing tv sets, Power brick replacement did not help.

Was able to update it to the latest update that time and was flawless since then.

Now I am not going to gamble of updating it to this new update that might give me issues.  Non of the update features are compelling enough for me to even update.

Now I am not going to gamble of updating it to this new update that might give me issues.  Non of the update features are compelling enough for me to even update.

I remember that I upgraded my Shield to SE 6.3 last 2018. It downloaded 19MB OTA update from the server and restarted my shield and after that gave me a warning message with a big yellow exclamation mark that google needs to check for corruption.
I was able to revive it but it was a lengthy process by unlocking the bootloader and flashing recovery images and etc..  http://www.pinoydvd.com/index.php/topic,201375.msg2597022.html#msg2597022

After what I experienced, when Oreo(SE7.0) came out I never upgraded my shield.  Just had a sinking feeling that it might happen again.  I just stayed with SE6.3(nougat) as long as I can up until Aug 2019 last week.

Well last week I was able to successfully upgrade it to SE 9.0(pie).. but I needed to upgrade it to Oreo first then Pie.  So far everything went smooth.  Wew! ;D

Updated to Pie.

As expected my shield went bonkers.

Random reboots again and shut downs. Several reboots nothing changed. Tried pulling the HDMI cord out  and booted the shield then reconnecting the shield after booting seems to fix the problem.

I tried it before but what i did was boot the shield from another TV/Projector then after booting and shutting down. I connected it to my main tv/projector. And somehow the shutdowns stopped.

My suspicion is shield needs to reset HDMI connection/information after an update just to work properly.  And disconnecting/reconnecting the HDMI cable allows the shield to reset HDMI configs and  properly work as the connection is presumed to be a new TV/projector.

Using SPMC front-end, with Emby server on a QNAP NAS as the backend - works perfectly for me

Try checking your TV show scraper. Aslo TV show folder directory name to match your TV shows so that the TV scraper can find it.

Try using another TV show scraper. Maybe your present  TV show scraper does not have it in their tv show database.

Mas madali ang plex or emby app server kesa kodi since may NAS ka naman.

Settingup plex with synology nas

Setting up emby server with synology

My plex server can he access on my phone

Transferring files to my shield is problematic too (LAN wired connection). It always fails and need to retry a couple of times before it finally succeeds.

hi, was able to connect it already, had to update the plex media server on the shield tv, only problem now is it only allows you to move files to a specific nvidia shield folder on the connected portable drives, any fix for this?
