Not a deal per se, but the 2019 shield remote is now in stock. I have the 2017 shield and find the stock remote rubbish where I currently use my phone to control the shield.

This new remote has infrared so can control your TV too.

You can also ask Alexa to find your remote and it beeps, the backlit keys are nice also.

They finally pop up for sale.

To be honest - the 2017 remote is complete garbage! Constantly stops responding for a random intervals. Out of the sudden starts sending all pressed keys at once. They are times that I want just to throw it away.
The new 2019 remote on the other hand is 10 times better, faster, response every time, has backlit, more keys, IR and so on and so forth!

Absolute rubbish. I have had mine running 8 different devices including Nvidia shield and Amazon's fire devices flawlessly for a couple of years now without the need to touch any of the original remotes. I can even control my devices remotely via the app with no issues. You may need to do some learning to be able to set it up or use it properly.

Hey Google tell harmony to turn the TV off..... Ok then turns off the amp skybox and TV .... Sort of speaks for its self try it
The app is slow and cumbersome never got improved so harmony was sold..

I have to wake up the remote first by pressing the home button then it does what I want.

Cheers, been wanting one of these for a while. Don't have a remote for my 2015 Shield.
I have this remote. Came with my shield. Whilst it's probably better than the last nvidia remote it is really really crap.

The buttons are really easy to knock (especially the huge netflix one) so things happen all the time without the intention for them to happen and the smooth plastic surface means it always slides off the sofa.

The back cover it crazy difficult to slide off the first couple times but after that it slides off almost by itself. Just using the remote and you can feel the back moving. So when it falls off the couch it's the first thing to pop off, batteries n all.

The only good things I can think of are that it lights up and doesn't require line of sight to work, except for volume.
I just got mine delivered today as I spotted the stock of them a week back. I've just set it up to IR my surround sound for volume, and lowered the back light in the settings. It's a much more functional and all round nicer remote, it has a nice weight to it and the centre circle button presses in a much nicer way.

Also it doesn't do random things when breathing near it like the old 2017 remote. Which is nice!
Ordered. Thanks. Been waiting for this

I have heard about the battery cover being too loose alot also common complaint amongst Nvidia shield 2019 discussions
Does this work with the 2017 nvidea sheild?

Yep, although I'm not sure what update you need to run with it. I'm on 8.0.2 if that's what helps.

Well a brand new one doesn't seem to have that issue right now. In fact, it took me quite a while to get the cover off before realising the batteries were already in it. So let's see how it goes over time but my one seems pretty sturdy

Once you’ve set up the hub and remote there’s no reason to use the app. I use the Hub and Remote with my Shield TV and it’s great. Really only thing it’s missing is the voice control but I never use it anyway.

That was the whole point for us.... Otherwise its just an extremely expensive remote..
And washing away with the apps faults with oh you only need it x amount isn't the point is it when buying supposedly high end tech..

Give it a couple months and it'll be popping off all the time.
I'll wait for the price to drop a bit but just a heads up if you don't know you can use your tv remote to work the Shield my Samsung TV works fine with it

I've got a rather old (8 years) Panasonic LCD tv and hdmi cec is intermittent. I'm sure with newer TV's it works fine. I just want a voice remote with bluetooth connectivity. Given how much I use the shield (I've not even bothered to connect my aerial) £27.99 is an acceptable price in my view

Or to responsive. Nothing better than +25% of volume at 1am on 5.1 Full size floorstanders
Why do you need a remote for a games console?

/s
Love my Nvidia Shield. Was interested in this but expected to pay through the nose for it when I put Ireland in for shipping. Amazingly £28 converts to €33 and delivery included too! Couldn't resist.

Depends which shield/remote though.

2017 shield pro = 2015 remote
2017 shield = 2017 "upgraded" remote

The pro package has infrared abilities, and I never had issues.

Now I just use a Logitech keyboard with touchpad, or the shield app.

I guess it must just be you and I here who thinks the original remote is fine. In the 1.5 years we've had our shield no-one in our household has complained about the remote. Even my youngest kids seem fine adjusting the volume with the slider.

Still, a good price for this newer remote though so heat added
