I got the same problem too from Amazon but ask for the replacement unit with free upgrade shipping. I dont think I got a free unit tho since it is replacement. LOL

Did your order reflects priority shipping? This is the fastest.

Another update; I tried to playback 4K clips, direct output from Shield ATV->Denon 7200WA->Panny 4K tv. Clips are located in portable hdd, my desktop system and Synology NAS. The playback is smooth and no shuttering at all. I'm using Kodi app to playback.

Sadly, the audio codec still a bummer, Atmos is out, my AVR reflects PCM.

I received mine yesterday as well.  I wonder if the bundled HDMI cable is 2.0 compliant.  Now I need to go get another HDMI 2.0 cable since I have none at the moment since it will be hooked up direct to my new Denon AVR.

Yes, it does, including ISO. Need to install Kodi. Let me play with it longer and report back.

Its able to play 4K MKV files smoothly.  Nothing much to setup.  Go to Google Play store to download Kodi (XBMC) and you are up and running.  You just need to setup Kodi preferences to suit your needs. But will have to wait for updated Kodi to support DTS-HD and Dolby TrueHD audio passthrough.

Shipping from Amazon to Singapore is free. Direct shipping.  Currently Amazon has an offer for SATV+Remote for USD175.
