Is this the fancy one? Can it act as a plex server, or just a plex player?
Great price..after the the 4k Pro though

Nope. Only the Pro version is capable of doing that. It can be used as a Plex client(player) but not Server.
These are 32Bit OS, the Pro is a 64Bit Os, hence different apps available for each. For many, this is all they will ever need and this one too does the upscaling.
How does this compare with the previous gen shield?
I want one the Pro to replace my Raspberry Pi for Emulation & Fire TV 4K, as well as the many many other options it gives.
You need the pro version for Plex server
I understand it is a popular service and might save some people time, but I hate when Netflix or other streaming services pay off a manufacturer to graffiti their remotes.

You can just get an app to reassign or kill that button don't make such a drama.

Not bothered about the functionality rather than it being a permanently printed ad for Netflix I have to look at all the time. Like if phone companies started taking backhanders to add dedicated McDonald’s buttons to their devices.

It's more than just savings time.

Sometimes Netflix pays to have the button

More often, though, Netflix won't allow the app if there is no button on the remote
Unless there has been an update I don't think Netflix and some other apps support Dolby Atmos on the Shield TV

Yes it does

Oh right. It's not on the Netflix supported devices list for Atmos that's all
Ahh the new 2019 models do have support. Sweet
What makes this so much more expensive than the fire stick 4k

Missing something too. Not covidiot, but my tv has loads of apps and fire stick has kodi..so limited by broadband speed .
That is not TV stick only. It's a multimedia center if you want. BT gamepads and nVidia NOW support allows you to use it like an gaming PC. Much more performance than FireStick etc. It's not like it would be worth £150 to everyone, but for some people wanting all of it's features not just some of them, it is.

Issue with 4k hdr playing from a Nas or similar. Lots about this issue on the Plex and Nvidia forums. Will be down to only 2gb ram. I have a pro now and no issues

These issues have all been ironed out now. No issues playing any remuxes with Plex and nothing to do with having only 2GB RAM at all. How much RAM do you think Plex client uses?!

Sorry dude. Didn't mean to sound all ****y. Just get annoyed when I see threads with people dissing the tube. No hard feelings pal!

My first gen shieldTV plays 4k hdr rips fine too, not using plex though now, went over to Emby instead as the UI and playback is much better IMO. Anyway, if these players have issues KODI is always an option, that has played everything I've ever thrown at it. I did re-rip some of mine to lower filesize now, so can't verify, but used to have around 100GB files that played fine... biggest I have now is 58GB 4K HDR10 with DTS.
I do remember plex having a problem playing back john wick 2 high bitrate file ages ago though.

I've got the first gen and the 2019 Tube. Biggest file is 110GB and it plays fine on both. Plex server is local but the majority of the files are stored in the US. Ahh the joys of gigabit Internet!

I'll have to try Emby sometime, sounds worth a go and an excuse to spend more time on IT projects

Yeah, Emby is great... I tried it years ago and didn't like it, but then when I rebuilt my server a month or 2 back, I got fed up of plex, Emby is easier to set up, titles are much more consistent with finding movies etc too. Playback is almost always instant, rather than plex sometimes taking a few seconds or more. I have 2 local servers, only have 70Mbit/s internet where I live, but it's enough for most stuff I do, just annoying sometimes when outside LAN and want to download files from the server with only 10-13 Mbit/s uploads
Give Emby server a try for sure... only thing is you might have to pay for the android app for example. Not sure if it still limits if you enable dnla and play that way though, might be feasible.

Nvidia tax, this runs Android TV and not a cut down Amazon version, Better specs, Gaming features
