Smart iptv also seems to be a good one but must be sideloaded as far as I know. Still on my list to try. You can try Perfect Player for free from the normal play store. Works great with the normal remotes.
If you are talking about smart iptv, isn't that the one you for smart tv's.? But if you are talkingsmarters iptv then that is in the play store and works well on android boxes

Is it just mine, or does the stb emulator pro crashes really frequently on the shield? That was the program i hoped to use... but since its crashing im probably gonna use Perfect player or Extreme player pro. Was hyped to use a Mag-box emulator... So dissapointed :/

Been researching Android boxes for a few days and wonder if you guys know whether Nvidia Shield supports 3D movies or not? If it doesn't can you recommend me an Android box that supports 4K video, 3D movies and has at least 802.11n wifi? I have a MAG254w1, but would like to use both Kodi as well as watching streamed 3K movies and have faster WiFi.

The shield supports anything. To support 3d movies, you have to have a tv that supports it. It's actually the tv that does the heavy liftin there. When it comes to 4k video, if you want it to be good then the only option is the Shield. But dont forget that your tv must support HDCP 2.2, or else it wont work. I tried my shield on my brothers tv, and he only had one port that supported the HDCP 2.2. Just a heads up if you buy it.

Hi a nvidia shield tv owner for about 2 weeks now
Initially thought was a overkill for my needs basically iptv and thought the colours were bit washed on smart iptv app , compared with smart iptv app on my samsung tv. But then i discovered where the power of shield really shine , was using Emby with a paid share service on my samsung tv and was really feed up with freezing and crashing . Nvidia shield is really a beast , 4k HDR play fantastic
Yes is a expensive device and i tried all iptv apps and they are not that great , only smart iptv is something friendly and easy to use but is missing a -roper dedicated iptv app like formuler box has for example
bought nvidia shield more for plex and emby use rather iptv, but love it so much now, proper android tv for big tv screens not like android boxes zoomed up on big tv

hi mate who is your emby server with , and what is it like

A quick summary on pros and cons of Nvidia Shield as im thinking of buying one. Is there a browser? Anything that anyone can think off would be great.

Hi, apart from IPTV i wanted to buy & use Nvidia Shield for X-Plane flight simulator or similar. Has anyone tried this box for gaming?, as if it works ok, it will save me upgrading my computer to cope with games. Thanks
