I finally unboxed my SATV after 3 years!!

Spent 1 hour upgraded FW to the latest and also add SPMC n others.

This mediabox works like a true champ...Can play all formats and also iso too!

Connectivity to my Synology was a breeze too.

Super impressed!

when you say it can play ISO files, do you mean DVD ISO files or BD and UHD ISO files with full menu navigation capability like what other players like egreat can do?

Nope...just simple BD ISO menu.

Another neat feature of nVidia Shield TV 4K is the ability to read MaxCLL and MaxFALL on 4K HDR rip in MKV format and this is very very crucial for 4K display. No other media player like Zidoo or Egreat does that.

SATV cant play BDMV folder which is non-issue as I can just play the index file will do...No full BD/DVD/UHD Menu is non issue for me too.

May I ask what is offered in eGreat and zidoo that SATV doesn't have? (besides full BD Menu)

Thinking of getting the Shield TV & weighing 2 buying options:
1) via Qoo for ard S$280. Some customers reviews seem to indicate the set comes with SG 3 pins power adapter.
2) via US Amazon for USD190 (abt S$260) b4 shipping. Total costs will probably be abt same as via Qoo.

Like to check w bro who gotten their sets fr US....fr pics I saw seems like the power adapter is the “brick” type. Is the adapter universal voltage and if so, since it is the brick type can I simply swop the power cable portion with a 2 or 3 pins kind & reuse the actual adapter or is the power cable fixed to the adapter?

Finally other than the abv 2 buying options, anyone with cheaper lobangs ;)?

Not a brick type of power cable. Get the 2017 version with a much smaller footprint.

There are some limitations with shield. No DV or atmos support for Netflix, no hdr support for YouTube. You might want to consider chrome cast ultra or Apple TV 4K but check to see what they support first.

Bro congsterz is right...those are some of the limitations. So do ask yourself what you want from Shield.

I suspect it is a matter of time for the Nvidia Shield TV to offer Dolby Atmos on the Netflix app. after all, it has been doing this for Amazon Prime Video since late 2018 I believe.

I didn’t realized SATV can play DSD files using SMPC

Does it play as native or convert to pcm?

If native I will start ripping to dff files

Thx
