Buy Buy Buy! Haha... Again, for those with faith that development will improve along the way, good to buy during BF sale. If no rush into it, simply just stay sideline still all those support on audio codec are resolved.

I just bought the 16gb model + remote. It's $150 now and includes free shipping. Sad thing is it will only arrive dec 11-18. Hopefully kodi on this satv will perform better than kodi (stuttering audio when passthrough) on my mini xiaomi box.

Based on my brief experience on Kodi in HiMedia, it is pretty decent, it is capable to output Atmos via pass through with no lag.

End of the day, it is up to Nvidia to push out the audio codec support and let Kodi for Nvidia to pick it up and release to Nvidia SATV users.

So far, aside from using it for Netflix and Hulu plus, I spent most of my time on YouTube. It is running smoothly.

Also, for future SATV users, good to buy a WIFI keyboard to pair it up. I'm using Logitech K830. Logitech Illuminated Living-Room Wireless Keyboard K830 and Touchpad for Internet-Connected TVs (Unifying and Bluetooth) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00ZOPVSKW/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_awd_eqpwwb1WTA2AB

Bro Tiktotape, I have varying experiences with Kodi on different devices.
Raspberry pi: no audio issues. Except slow performance cause of hw specs.
Mibox mini: audio stuttering on pass through but lag free user experience.
Since shield is android tv, and mibox also, I hope the stuttering issue is fixed Liao.

So far I got no issues with Kodi in Nvidia SATV aside from lack of audio codec support in Kodi. The next version of Kodi for SATV will support HD audio codec except Atmos iirc.

Kodi works differently in various Andriod media devices so it is very dependent on hardware manufacturer, so long they can push out the support, just wait for Kodi to get it through. Timeline vary again.

Offer is live at USD$149.99 now for the Shield and Remote.

During final checkout, the order will be broken into 2 orders and one will be eligible for free worldwide shipping while the other will not.
Just choose free worldwide shipping for the order that is eligible and pay extra shipping charges for the other which is not eligible.
Place your order.

After placing your order, talk to Amazon customer service and ask them to check why you were charged shipping even though individual items are eligible for free worldwide shipping.
CS will then proceed to waive the shipping charges.  ;)
