If you just want it for streaming your better with a Fire TV cube on Prime Day only a few days off now. I got this Shield last year. It gets updated regularly and has full play store unlike fire tv. I had an Apple TV trial but couldn’t get that on the shield had to use old fire stick.
It's an Android TV box with literally the best software support from any manufacturer bar none. Nvidia are superb with their support. In terms of what it can do, it can run Android apps, it can stream just about anything, use Kodi on it. Cloud gaming (Geforce NOW),it can run as a media server using Kodi, Plex etc. You can play retro games on it. It has Alexa and Google Assistant, does all the stuff you mentioned and more.
Better to wait for Amazon Prime Day and see if they discount Warehouse stuff. I got mine refurbed from Amazon for £101 and it was in pristine condition.
Believe me Emby works really well here .. I pay to use someones Emby and he has huge libraries ... One example of a Movie library consists of 42684 items. Man also has 10894 TV shows .. Emby struggles on the LG TV app and scrolling is buggy but put it on the Shield TV and its smooth like butter Yes odd time you do get a pause and have to restart but its rare. The app works really well .. you can use the built in mic on the remote and it will add this as text then you have to hit search ... apart from Crossy Roads not played any other game yet so cant comment there but reviews seems to think its nice ... Anyway hope you find what you are looking for
As a fellow EMBY user with a ludicrous library and dizqueTV running inside EMBY ive been toying with getting one of these, almost seem to good to be true these though, there must be something wrong with it! :)
Got shield Pro installed Sound us coming through on tv aa Atmos and 3 4.1 into receiver through arc Sounds amazing and can actually hear speech clearly through Netflix which i couldn't with 4k firestick Well happy although Dolby Vision isnt as spectacular
My ub450 and sometimes firestick actually show as true hd as 3.4.1 Jack Ryan first episode on prime is one But that's through my tv which has Atmos and set to automatic Gets confusing And the 1040 because it was fed from the audio HDMI from the player needed changing to amp only output ir it would use the standard sent back from the tv through CEC Been thinking about the 1080 but they're definitely due for a new model and need hdr10+ and Dolby Vision passthrough to feed my TV Looking at Denon 2700? Do love my Sony though apart from the crap equaliser
Atmos encoded Dolby Digital+ & Dolby TrueHD soundtracks are still playable on non Atmos equipped receivers such as the 1040 but you are just getting the standard 5.1 or 7.1 channel based mixes rather than the object based Atmos decoding. The 1040 can also upmix 5.1 content to 7.1 so that’s why you’re hearing your height channels. I recently upgraded from a Sony 1040 to the 1080 & they are tonally very similar. Atmos when done well sounds great.

it doesn't work on tegra chipsets I've tested and tried numerous builds and tried to find an extracted tv app version from an Android tv but no luck there was an older version that kinda worked but now they appear to of blocked that too (mad)
Well no...that's why I said 'I get the feeling' and not there are rumours, the Switch Lite and revised Pro model both came out the same year as the Shield Pro came out. Nvidia also likely want to bring up their HDMI ports up to the 2.1 Standard, That said, with the chip shortage it is possible the initial supply could all go towards the new Switch Pro with the Shield coming next year.
Nice bit of info that cheers! Got the Pro 2015 and likely dont make the most of this fine device :)
Expired, price went up
You can sideload it if you really need to get your fill of adverts.
No worries. The Google device has Chromecast too, not sure if that helps with your dilemma? Apple used to recommend this to their users a few years back not sure now.
Yeah sorry, just amended my comment.
It has an gigabit Ethernet jack.
I was initially thinking about the firestick too but roku comes with airplay which made it easier for the missus :) Thanks for your advice. Really appreciate it.
I agree with you. It depends entirely on what you want it for, but really the only shield worth getting is the Pro. A Chromecast will do 99% of what the tube version will do (sans AI upscaling and lossless audio passthrough), for less money.
Nvidia Shield TV: Streaming, Gaming and Set-Top Box All in One Device
The Nvidia Shield is a set-top box, games console, and streaming device, all in one. Designed to cater for users who love gaming and watching TV on the same TV, the Shield could be a game-changer for UK households, or it could be an unnecessary addition to home entertainment collections.
So, do you need to invest in this high-tech streaming gadget? This hotukdeals buyer's guide will investigate what the Nvidia Shield is, what it does, and who it might appeal to. We'll assess the competition, suggest some killer games for the system, and provide a little advice about how to find a Nvidia Shield cheap and the best Nvidia Shield deals. But before we do that, let's get to know the manufacturer in a bit more detail.
Understanding the History of Nvidia
Gamers will probably already be a little familiar with the name Nvidia. That's no surprise, as the company manufacturers the GeForce range of graphics processors, which have become a key aspect of gaming for PC users across the world. Able to accelerate 3D graphics without creating vast amounts of heat and noise, these cards have revolutionised the way developers create PC video game titles, opening up new vistas of gameplay and visual experiences.
The company itself is based in Delaware and California, in the United States. In the 1990s, it was one of the first tech companies to focus on specialist graphic acceleration cards, accurately divining the trajectory of the home and professional computing market. A major breakthrough came in 1999, when Nvidia released the GeForce 256, it's first mass market graphics card. The quality of this card created such a buzz that the developers were brought on board by Microsoft for its new Xbox console. Ever since, Nvidia products have played a key role in delivering crisp, smooth, Xbox action.
After acquiring 3DFX and Exluna in the 2000s, Nvidia became one of the “big two” GPU manufacturers, competing directly with AMD. It advised Sony when creating the PS3, and also started developing processors specifically for mobile devices.
At the same time, Nvidia realised that the future wouldn't revolve around graphics processing alone. Gamers and movie fans were also demanding new ways to “stream” content from their devices to TVs. That's why the company released the first Nvidia Shield console in 2015. It's also why GeForce Now emerged as the company's streaming platform, offering a way for Shield users to choose their games and entertainment content (and make micro-payments to consume it).
The basic console was joined by Nvidia Shield Tablets, and the basic microconsole has been beefed up into the Pro – with extra storage capacity. With more smart tech compatibility planned, it looks like Nvidia will be playing a key role in the future of streaming content. But what does the Nvidia Shield have to offer UK customers right now?
How Does Nvidia Shield Work?
The Shield system is based around a console unit, which as we'll see in a moment comes in a couple of variations. This unit runs Android TV – an operating system that's similar to Kodi and other streaming software, and hooks up easily to Android smartphones.
The console itself connects to compatible TVs, establishing a direct connection for streaming, and can also hook up with computers or phones, acting as an intermediary, a little like the more familiar Chromecast or Amazon Firestick. But the core purpose of the Shield is to store content and deliver it to TVs.
The box uses its own controllers, but comes with various USB ports to connect additional peripherals, while Bluetooth connectivity ensures that other devices can be connected as well, such as headphones.
Basically, this setup enables owners to download and store games on their Shield console, and stream them seamlessly on modern televisions. It's a more elegant option than plugging in laptops, or attaching Chromecast dongles, and potentially opens up a whole world of gaming and viewing opportunities.
Key Features of the Nvidia Shield
Here are a few of the core features of the latest version of the Nvidia Shield:
Weight and Size – Weighing in at 250g, the Shield is extremely lightweight and simple to move around as required. Measuring 9 x 16 x 2.5 cm, it can be slotted underneath TVs and packed away when not in use, and takes up hardly any living room space.
4K Streaming – Unlike some similar products, the Nvidia Shield explicitly caters for 4K video streaming, so games and movies will look at their best (providing your TV caters for 4K visuals). 4K can be played at 60fps, so the action should be pretty smooth, whether you are blowing away enemies on Fortnite, or watching the latest Marvel blockbuster.
Dolby Atmos Audio – Audio really matters when it comes to gaming and streaming, and the Shield doesn't let down users here. It caters for cutting edge Dolby Atmos surround sound via a pass-through, as well as the DTS-X format. So users with sophisticated speakers won't be left out in the cold.
Super-Fast Processing – As you'd expect from a company which made its name for high-end graphics cards, Nvidia have bundled in a powerful processor with the Shield. Users benefit from a Tegra X1 card, which boasts 256 cores and 3GB RAM, enough to handle virtually all current titles.
Plenty of Android Compatibility – One of the strengths of the Nvidia Shield is its ability to connect with other devices, and the Android 8.0 interface makes this easy. It has been adapted for connectivity with Google smart devices, as well as Chromecast. So users can stream straight from computers to their Shield, widening the potential streaming options considerably.
Storage Space – Standard Shields come with 16GB of on-board storage, and the ability to store content remotely on their Nvidia accounts. But the Pro goes further, adding a whopping 500GB of space for gamers to fill. Both provide ample storage space for games, music, and video.
Smart Tech Functionality – If you've fallen in love with smart tech, the Nvidia Shield will make a great addition to your home. It comes with Smart Assistant functionality as standard, so voice commands are on the agenda. And it also connects with both Google Home and Amazon Alexa, so should fit neatly into existing setups.
Easy to Setup – All that users need to get started with the Nvidia Shield is a standard wifi connection (802.11ac 2x2 MIMO 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz). So it should slot into any home configuration.
Connections to almost all TVs – Thanks to its HDMI 2.0 port, the Shield will connect easily to today's TVs. A gigabit ethernet connection is also available, along with dual USB 3.0 ports.
Plex Media Server – This online service is run by Nvidia, and opens up a host of content options for Shield owners. It works with the Plex Media App which comes with all Shield devices, allowing users to stream the content that hold locally, download fresh movies or games and store them for later, and generally manage their library easily.
Nvidia Remotes – Not all users will require the Nvidia Remote, but it's a popular addition for streaming fans. As the name suggests, this peripheral allows wire-free control over your Shield console, making it easy to pause movie, music, or TV playback.
GeForce Now – Possibly the most exciting feature of the Nvidia Shield from a gaming perspective, GeForce Now offers access to over 400 popular PC games, streamed in 4K, straight onto home TVs.
Nvidia Shield: Buying Options
Those features make the Nvidia Shield a go-to option for many gamers, both as a standalone gaming console, and a supplement to their PC or Xbox systems. If you want to join them, you'll find the following major buying options when you buy Nvidia Shield products at hotukdeals:
Nvida Shield TV – The standard Shield TV package includes the microconsole, with Google Assistant built-in. There's no controller in the most basic packages, though check for deals which bundle in extras. Basic versions get the Android OS, Tegra processors, and automatic updates – just like everyone else.
Nvidia Shield TV Gaming Edition – For a slightly higher Nvidia Shield price, buyers can optimise their purchase for gaming. This package generally costs £20-30 more, and comes with a single controller, which is essential to make the most of the system's gaming potential. The controller also enhances the Shield's Smart tech, with its hands-free microphone.
Nvidia Shield TV Smart Home Edition – This family-oriented edition comes with the standard Shield console, the Shield Remote, and a little dongle called the SmartThings Link. This handy accessory allows users to link their Shield with far more smart devices, including lights, security equipment, cameras, even fridges.
Nvidia Shield TV Pro – At the highest end of the Nvidia Shield TV UK price range, the Shield TV Pro comes with 500GB of storage space (compared with 16GB for the standard version). That's a massive enhancement for gamers, making it easy to store games locally, as well as saved games and apps. This should deliver faster loading times and less lag for multiplayer titles. If you intend to use the Plex Media Server, it's definitely the option to choose.
What Has the Tech Press Said About the Nvidia Shield?
Generally speaking, Nvidia Shield review feedback has been very strong. For instance, Trusted Reviews took on the Shield in July 2018, and awarded the microconsole 4 stars out of 5. Its reviewer loved the compact design, 4K support, the ability to stream from the Cloud via Plex, and the intuitively designed controllers and remotes. They also noted that the Shield connects directly to GeForce Now, offering a gaming selection that Smart TV android systems can't match.
Tech Radar assessed the same (2nd generation) Shield and came to very similar conclusions, awarding the system 4.5 stars out of 5, and calling it the “perfect addition to your audiovisual arsenal”. Again, the appeal rested on a) the ability to stream a vast array of games and b) the chance to do so in 4K, straight to TVs.
Some of the Best Nvidia Shield Games to Think About Downloading
As we noted above, GeForce Now offers a library of more than 400 games – and the options include some of today's most popular TV titles.
The choice is extremely wide, with shooters, RPGs, sandbox style games, Football Manager, and space exploration titles like No Man's Sky. The sports selection isn't as extensive as it could be (there's no Fifa, for instance), but there should be plenty of titles here for gamers to sink their teeth into.
Membership of GeForce Now is free of charge to Shield owners. This doesn't mean that all of the listed games are free. You'll still need to connect to download sites like Steam to actually start downloads. However, Nvidia does make a range of games free to download on a monthly basis, which is a nice perk for Shield users.
Additionally, Nvidia has teamed up with Google Play to offer Nvidia exclusives, so it's worth hunting around for Android games that you won't find anywhere else.
Nvidia Shield Consoles Accessories
We're almost ready to make an Nvidia Shield purchase, but one important subject remains: peripherals. The Nvidia Controller and the Nvidia Remote are key aspects of the Shield, so how do they work, and are they worth buying individually with a standard package?
The Nvidia Shield Controller – Resembling an Xbox controller, the Nvidia Controller is wifi enabled, and connects automatically to the console. It comes with “dual vibration feedback” for the full immersive gaming experience. There's a 3.5mm jack on the casing, allowing gamers a little privacy, as well as a microphone built-in. This means users can employ the controller to issue voice commands – a neat touch.
The Nvidia Shield Remote – Sleek and stylish, the Shield Remote is a wireless controller which makes it easy to pause movies, choose tracks, and navigate the Shield's Android menus. It has an IR Blaster built-in, which could be handy for using with some TVs and speakers. The remote also uses replaceable and rechargeable coin cell batteries.
So there's no need to wonder how to charge Nvidia Shield remote controls. Instead, users will benefit from a stash of spare coin cell batteries. Any standard CR2032 batteries will do, and you'll find brands like Duracell available at very reasonable prices by browsing the hotukdeals batteries listings.
NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV – RULE THE LIVING ROOM
How and When to Pick Up an Nvidia Shield Bargain
Nvidia's Shield has become a hugely popular alternative to streaming boxes, Smart TVs, and Chromecast dongles, and it also offers competition to games consoles like the Playstation 4 and Xbox One. If you love gaming and have a widescreen 4K TV, there's no better addition to your home entertainment collection. But how can you buy Nvidia Shield products for less?
Firstly, decide whether you need the Standard or Pro package. You'll find a significant price difference between the two. Both have the same processor and access to peripherals and Android services. The difference lies in local storage. If you go for the Standard box, you'll need to rely on Cloud storage or endure length downloads when starting gaming sessions. With the Pro, you can store games locally, and be ready to play immediately.
Sometimes, you can also find better deals by purchasing controllers, remotes and Shield boxes separately. This isn't always the case, but don't assume that Nvidia's own bundles represent the best value. Shop around for prices for the kit you need, and buy it anyway you can.
The best way to shop around is by browsing the hotukdeals Nvidia Shield listings. Our listings include Shield bargains from merchants like Amazon, John Lewis, Currys PC World, and eBuyer. You'll also find listings for Shield purchases via Google Play and Steam, making it cheaper to build entertainment libraries when you've purchased a console.
And think about timing, too. The best NVidia Shield sale bargains can often be found around Black Friday in November. So think about waiting a while before buying. It can pay off in a big way. However, if you can't wait, check out the listings currently available via hotukdeals. You're sure to find Nvidia Shield products at affordable prices.
Enter a New World of Streaming Entertainment with the Nvidia Shield Discounts at hotukdeals
The Nvidia Shield is a “microconsole” which allows Smart TV owners to make their cutting edge TVs even smarter. Providing a way to stream 4K gaming content directly onto TVs, and featuring high-quality remote controllers and gamepads, the Shield also allows owners to access hundreds of downloadable games – often at very low prices. So if your living room entertainment is becoming stale, find a solution at the hotukdeals Nvidia Shield listings.
Good point. I keep my boxes from various tech in the shed whenever I can, easily get a 10-20% uplift in the sale price if you do a few nice pics with the box and various accoutrements that came with it.
Yes, Plex, Netflix, Amazon etc. Anything you play through the shield can be upscaled.
Does it upscale all contents.
I don't understand half of what you said but I wish you were my mate and you could install the same system on mine
Going to order and see this ..got 75" screen so anything that improves the pic will be good ..can always return if not happy (y)

If I had the choice of this or amazon cube I would go for cube rather then tube but if I had extra cash go for the pro as its best
Download kodi, install a cool looking kodi build into kodi itself (youtube tutorials for this) Buy a subscription for real-debrid.com (this allows you to stream premium links) costs about 16euro or £14 for 6 months. Link kodi and real debrid together and kodi will play premium links for you. Immagine being able to play a 4k film instantly with no buffering.
What does everyone use these for? I’m thinking of ditching my Sky tv. My Tv’s remote and interface are horrible. Is this device a lot more than a chrome cast style one?
I’m more than overjoyed with my Plex setup. Paid for a lifetime Plex sub and got a 4K Firestick. IMHO these shield tv devices are overpriced and they’re only good if you want the very best.
I'm currently using a Chromecast ultra to stream from my plex server downstairs, and on occasions it has struggled with 4k / uhd content or when downsampling audio from atmos to 5.1. It struggles with direct play and has to transcode. I read somewhere that the shield was able to direct play everything, hence why I'm looking into this
I only had 1 box out of 3 brick and the one from 2016 is still working as a backup, It bricked because of updating, so i don't update, i learned my lesson, So if you know that you won't ever update then it isn't a problem, android doesn't force you to update, you should get 5 years before the android version is to old and apps start mis behaving, They can be re flashed back to stock as there is plenty of aftermarket support, loads of You Tube guides on all aspects of work arounds to box limitations, I just don't want Nvidia snooping on what apps i side load on my box, Ultimately it's everyone's choice how they spend their money, i would by a Shield but for what they are they are to expensive and there is far more choice in the chinese boxes and if you aren't bothered about internal storage you can get a good one for £50 with Android 9 & 16GB of storage.
Ignoring all the chip stuff, how good are MeCool with updates? Is it one of those products that gets abandoned in a couple years? NVIDIA is still providing fixes and updates for the Shield, which makes it worth it because I’d rather have a product that’s working with consistent updates in a couple years than one thats broken in a few months.
I decided to go for a Mecool KM6 Deluxe, I just don't like being lied to, this isn't a new chip, 25% faster, Chigz checked the antutu score and the chip information and it is the same as the 2017 specs, I assume Nvidia decided they needed to lie about a better chip otherwise why would anyone upgrade, Other than the "new" chip it doesn't have a controller or a HDMi cable, and the storage is a joke, so less value, Yes it is a beast, but expensive and the old chip, i just feel the Mecool for £80 with 64GB storage is better for me, they also do 1 with 32GB for £10 less from Banggood, The Mecool runs Android TV 10 with Widevine L1, only thing that might be an issue is no Netflix license, you can side load it but it will only be 480P, Fanboys can moan all they want, of coarse the Shield is better but is it more than 2 times better, no, I may buy one at some point in the future if the actually upgrade the chip, i really don't like intrusive ads on my home screen, which seem like the new normal.
I'd be interested in this as it would combine my Amazon Fire Stick, Chromecast and other apps on my LG TV into one box. However, I use Steam Link (sideloaded) via the Fire Stick, but it sounds like you can only use Steam on the Shield if you have a PC with an NVIDIA card. Makes sense I guess, but as I've got an AMD card, I might just stick with what I've got for the time being! Great price though.
Price on these down to £179 at Currys now. They just price matched my purchase from last Friday meaning after my work discount is £160. Super bargain
That is unfortunate and unlucky. It sounds like you either had a bad unit or there's a handshake issue with HDMI CEC (which is likely with an old TV). But for your needs, you can't go wrong with the new Google TV stick
it varies, the issues range from random crashes, the volume control stop adjusting my soundbar to sometimes not turning my tv on to visually glitching out until you restart. The reason I don't like it is that it's unreliable and buggy AF for me, I only use it for streaming content (I have a home server I'm planning on using for local media content - the amount I was paying for 480p movies on Google/Amazon started to add up). When I was comparing it to my smart tv, the only thing I really cared about was the lag my tv has when you flick through the apps.
That's surprising to hear. I use the previous generation Shield Pro and it just works seamlessly. I've used other Android boxes/firesticks in the past and they definitely have compromises. What issues did you run into? Because I would assume any issue you had on the Shield, you would have on every other Android box/stick.
Think so yes, if not you could sideload it anyway
I've been swaying between the google device and a firestick 4k, but no 4od is a deal break for me. Seems strange for 4 not to want their app on their.
It isn't perfect but there is work arounds to many of the problems you have been pointing out... with Live TV I disagree there's a app called TV Player where u can watch most freeview channels for free or pay a little extra to record or add on a few subscription channels at a low price... The All-4 has always been a problem, but since the Shield does allow unknown sources option you can download the All4 app from other sources across the Internet and use a screen rotation to make the app work on the Shield its not perfect but does work... No problems with Netflix, ITV Hub or BBC IPlayer these are all defaults with the Shield.. complete access to YouTube, Disney Plus, Amazon Prime... Normal TV is pants anyway yes it does depend on the preferences,... when I got the Shield over 4 years ago it wasn't that great but nvidia has put a lot of hard work into making it a great machine...over 2 years ago me and the Mrs decided to drop Sky completely...both agreed what a rip off and a waste of money we woz feeding that trash.. never looked back since best decision we maded to be honest... BT Sports is also available and some of the apps u can't get you can locate in other areas of the Internet... Nvidia isn't locking u in with anything... They is saying here's are box.. Go see what you can do with it.. SKY, Apple or anybody else's like that wouldn't give you a freedom of choice but Nvidia do which is probably why people love it so much... But like you said it's all about preference... It keeps me happy anyway, I can stream my PC to it and for me and many it's a around entertainment system
Thanks for sharing @Lemon0171 (y)
Honestly a FreeSat box with Nvidia capabilities would be a huge hit and I reckon people would pay £500 for something like that due to savings alone from Sky etc
Very true, unfortunately, not a single box can compete with Sky. Humax Aura looks good on paper but is buggy and no Netflix, Freesat Box is slow with limited features, and Shield doesn't support Freeview apps (All4) for some reason. It could be a great solution pairing Shield with HDHomeRun and Jellybean but not having catchup tv is a deal breaker for many people. On their website nVidia claims Shield can replace cable TV without extra costs but this is not true - we still need to pay for DVR, the preinstalled BBC iPlayer and ITV Hub require subscription for HD contents, All4 is not even available, etc whilst all this comes free of charge with other boxes. So at the end of the day its all about personal preferences. For streaming and gaming Shield is the best choice but their statement about being a cable TV replacement is only partly true - it won't replace Sky, at least without offering all basic Freeview perks that people can get free of charge.
This is a fair comment but also a good reason to review your requirements against a device... This is aimed at those wanting full audio/visual for content they have including streaming services... Freeview or Sat isnt a consideration... but if it was I feel it would be at a much higher price point... Im still shocked there isnt a "sky" quality UI box for freeSat looking at reviews of the latest 4K FreeSat ones the reviews are shocking. I will add this was the only device at this price point that would play the content I had.. shocking that an external Hard Drive on a 2020/21 TV cant be played as its too "High" a bit rate for the TV processor
Even if you could sideload it you would then need a mouse to navigate it properly as it will be the Android version and not the Android TV version, people always defend it on here saying just cast it instead, trouble is not all users in the same household necessarily have access to a smart device
Voted cold.Was same price 2 weeks ago Curry's, Amazon brand new one.
Even sideloading it doesn't seem to work (at least having updated both Shield and All4). Equally the Mrs. and I use other apps that are seemingly proprietary to Amazon's hardware. Unfortunately, it looks like the ShieldTV is headed back to Amazon. I can't justify having to juggle between two devices for content.
there are ways around it but not ideal on a premium priced product, I had to keep a Firestick when I bought my Shield TV for All4
Just setup my Pro this morning and am just now finding this out... (mad)
But even Sony TV's the apps don't play full audio... So that isn't the solution
Oh really?!. How did everyone just missed that little great factoid of yours?
Just get an Android TV, that also plays everything and you don’t need to spend money on a extra box.
No difference and yes
Just to say I recently contacted Nvidia as my shield fan was making a horrible noise. It was a 2017 model bought new by someone else and then sold on to me as still sealed. I purchased it around 4 years ago from them and Nvidia where still more than happy to issue an RMA for it. It was replaced within a week back in November. So even though things are out of warranty don't just assume they won't help you. I was only really contacting them originally to see if they could supply me with a new fan (lol)

No need for Plex pass. I share my server with family and no one, including me, has the pass.
No, only the content you have shared on Plex.
So can I share same Plex contents with other Nvidia shield in other country? They could watch and use same apps of my device?
You need a Plex pass. Usually £5 a month but I paid £70 for lifetime a few weeks back. Also unlocks some nice quality of life features like a Netflix style “skip intros” button and allows push notifications so your friends get notifications on their phone when you add new content to your server
How can I stream to friends?

Have a look on scan.co.uk website, they are cheap for a new one there. In the meantime you can use the shield app on your phone or most TV remote will work with it too.
Can anyone confirm that has Nvidia Shield TV Pro 2019 with advertised SoC (CPU) Tegra X1+ Mariko please? I checked 3 devices with AIDA64 app and all of them shows older Tegra X1 Erista CPU. It looks like Mariko CPU is non existent to me.
bought a used 2019 shield pro, but did not come with a remote control, where can i get one cheap..used as iv read you can use any android remote or firetv remote, but! you can not get typing in to work ie keyboard.
I got my 2019 Pro last weekend- love it ! Love the AI Upscaling too !
This. It's actually gone the other way for me as well - a few months ago they released an update that allowed TV controls via the Shield remote so I've more or less ditched my TV remote as well because I can do everything from my shield remote.
