The End of GPUs and Consoles

That guy blabbing about IPTV wasted his money on this device. For me, It's for Netflix, YouTube and of course Gaming. Afraid to waste thousands of dollars on future proofing your gaming PC? Then how about using this little guy to stream games from Nvidia own servers. Ensure you have fast internet speeds and even a wired ethernet to reduce any input lag. You are set to game well into the future. You can even stream your existing games! I love this thing!

Glorified and over-priced toy, for a controversial service which will probably become illegal soon..

IPTV will most likely become illegal in Canada sooner or later. The taking of internet-based TV channel content without paying any licence and redistribution fees, and reselling them to us, has already been disputed to the CRTC in Canada and there are several articles by major newspapers or news services, which suggest that it is definitely going to be stopped one day. It could happen in a few months, or a few years. Having said that, the NVidia Shield does have all the speed and power that everyone praises it for, and more RAM than (almost) all other IPTV boxes out there. I think a new one just came out with 4GB of RAM but most have 1 or 2GB, which may not be enough for 4K streaming if required. It rarely had issues of freezing. I played only car racing games but the games were a bonus, not the main purpose of this device for me. IPTV depends a lot on your provider's quality. None of the Canadian channels I got were HD! They were all 480p or may be 576p at best! I had to go to the USA to get the HD versions of TSN, CBS, Sportnet which is by Rogers, a Canadian company! That's pathetic. I know there are other IPTV providers out there which can give (possibly) HD content but guess what? Even the original TV channel websites like CBC or CTV don't have FULL HD streaming shows! I just watched a show and it was at 576p from the CTV website. Also, your favourite weekly TV show may work one week, but the stream may fail the next week, causing you to get a "network error" and miss it. So I decided to forego a questionable service like IPTV and just stream the TV shows I usually watch from the Canadian TV channels' websites. No big deal. I almost always recorded them on my PVR when I had cable TV anyways, Recording IPTV is also extremely limited. You cannot schedule recurring weekly shows for example. If there are apps which can do that, I didn't have the patience to search, because the IPTV "world" is a mess of buggy, sub-par apps, with a few good ones mixed in. This requires a lot of time - like WEEKS even months - of learning and spending time on the internet. Then there is the infamous EPG - the electronic programming guide. 25-50% of channels were not listed in my provider's EPG. Yet my IPTV provider was chosen No. 1 in Canada for servers, by a website. That's why I went with it. You can find other EPG links (URLs or xmltv files) on the internet, but that would takes enormous amount of time and patience. I had the Shield TV for 2.5 weeks, so it's not like I didn't try to learn all I could about it and about IPTV. After spending 4 HOURS and another 2-3 hours more the next few days, no matter what I tried, I could not get Shield to see the contents of my network attached storage drive folders nor my PC folders on my home network. I could see the folder but clicking on it did nothing; no errors neither. I emailed NVidia and they never really solved the problem; just offered a few lame indifferent and arrogant suggestions about troubleshooting which were the SAME ones as on their website!!! So NVidia technical support is garbage! Looks like NVidia has joined the ranks of thousands of famous companies which make so much money, that they don't care about properly supporting their PAYING customers, to which they owe their existence! The navigation is also very complicated on the Shield TV. You cannot just use their remote control or game pad. Some apps require you to go up to the top for the main menu, which cannot be accessed with any button on the remote, unless you scroll up to the top of your TV channel playlist and then after about 50 clicks, reach the settings menu! You need to use the Shield Android app on your phone and use the mouse function to navigate and the keyboard function to type URLs, passwords, quickly. Otherwise, it would take you like 1-2 minutes to type a password using the on-screen keyboard and remote control cursor , when it

Great Android TV Box

I'm really amazed by the quality and performance of my NVidia Shield, it's a great investment for those who, like me, wanted to "cut the cord". On the top of that, there are a lot of Android and NVidia games and apps you can install and enjoy. The included Chromecast feature is really helpful when you want to cast content from your phone to the TV. I think is a wonderful device!
