NVIDIA SHIELD TV Reviews

Lockups, periodic black screen,

By Todd
Rated 2 out of 5
Date: 2022-01-14

Right out of the box I had issues. First, it wanted to apply software updates, but this left me with a red spinning circle on the screen. After an hour, I tried to power off the device via the remote, but that didn't work. It was totally locked up. I pulled the plug, powered it up, and again it got stuck applying an update. I pulled the plug, powered it up, and it seemed to be fine, until the screen would periodically go completely black for a few seconds. This happened whether I was in the menus or watching a program. Software updates didn't fix it. After searching the internet for hours, someone suggested turning off various settings, I did, and so far the black-screen problem has not returned. I'm not sure what features or functionality I lost by doing this. Also, Google needs a smarter GUI designer. Showing/Hiding on-screen buttons based on where the 'cursor' is currently is bad design (the user has to move to an item, then scan the entire screen to see what changed, and do this for each menu), and causes the screen to expand and contract so the necessary button(s) can be displayed. This is disruptive and confusing to the user experience. Additionally, I learned that when multiple buttons are available, the in-focus button is the larger one, but it's only larger by a little bit. Here's a little tip for the GUI designer at Google, Why not paint the in-focus button GREEN? The user can easily distinguish which button is in-focus, PLUS there is less shifting of the screen contents. The video quality is like what you would expect from a normal HD channel. Too many problems right out of the box that I was forced to research and fix on my own. I paid $200, AND had to fix THEIR problems? Unacceptable! I probably should have returned it immediately, but I didn't. I can't believe both NVIDIA and Google would allow such an unreliable (and poorly designed) device to go out the door. It says a lot about those companies, doesn't it. Does Apple-TV have these problems?

NVIDIA SHIELD Pro is a great product. I bought the first one year ago and this is the second device in my house. Love it.

I have a media player for several years, this one has some trouble reading video from a NAS. So, I was looking for something able to read standard videos. This product don't let me do the configuration if I've no google account. I don't care about these features. It refuses to connect to my local network (LAN) and allow a wifi connection only. I just want to read files on a NAS with a LAN connection on a local network. Can somebody help me to achieve this simple config ?

I ordered this piece of tech from my home in Israel and it arrived within only few days. i was very satisfied with how quick it happened. the only problem was the tax... the site did not alert me to the fact that the price i payed + shipping did not include tax, that i was forced to pay when the package arrived to israel. i had to add about 20% out of the total sum to release it and for it to be delivered to my home... didn't like that at all... the rest is perfect, and the NVIDIA SHIELD is a very good streamer.

Bought this thinking it was the pro, turns out it's not. Doesn't have the same smooth animations as the pro, but the experience was great nonetheless. Stunning 4K resolution, lots of apps to choose from. Just great! I love it!

What is the difference between this and Chromecast?
Asked by: Bradley
As others have said the Shield is a more powerful device designed to playback content in the best quality long with helping you find content whether its TV/movies or games. Chromecast is an easy solution if you want to cast content from your phone. But, exploring content and user experience wouldn't be as fluid as the Shield.

What Cords do I need to buy separately ?

What Cords do I need to buy separately ?
Asked by: SummerLee
I use wired Ethernet, so I had to have one of those. The device is set up for wireless networking, too. It comes with an AC power cord (no brick; plugs in directly), but not an HDMI cable. If you have a 4K monitor/TV get a cable that is rated for 4K. I chose to add a MicroSD card to have more than the default 8GiB, which allows me to store more apps (not needed yet, but ...) and keep content local to the Shield to play through Kodi or VLC

Yes it will. The power supply is a universal type 100-240V AC 50/60 Hz. But the AC outlet plug is for North America only. It will require an adapter to convert the plug to your local configuration,
