I updated to 2.0 and I can't view my contents anymore as my TV is not HDCP2.2 or 4K-enabled, even though all my HDMI port in my AV receiver is HDCP 2.2 compliant. Only option now is to connect directly to TV but will not get to enjoy my home theater setup, which is sad.

Anyone know how to uninstall or downgrade my 2.0 update back to it previous version of 1.4?
Sorry to hear that. Nvidia really needs to test their updates properly. V1.4 and V2.0 has been less than ideal. I thought that after v1.4's bricking Pro SATV incident, they would be more cautious.

Everytime an update is released, I'm always very tempted to update, but I keep reminding myself of my PC's bios update that killed my pc. Then I tell myself "if it isn't broken, don't fix it". I'm happy with v1.3 so far.

Thanks radioshack!
Unotelly works well (in comparison to PureVPN's Smart DNS offering)

When using Smart DNS services, Stream Games (GRID) will assign US servers instead of East Asia (Japan). It's a very minor issue for me as I do not really intend to utilize the GRID.
Hi, you mentioned that you used unotelly to get Hulu to work on the Shield TV. Is it working for Hulu apk for Android TV (latest V1.2.0) or the normal version (non android tv)?

Hi all shield tv owners,
I am planning to get one for Geforce Now. But I have tested my network,
both starhub cable and singtel fiber have a red flag at Latency,
both are at the range of 80-100ms, I'd want to know will that affect game play a lot.
Or will it be better if I switch to Republic Gaming plan? Thanks a lot

Hi seals,

I uninstalled both versions of Hulu from my SATV as I do not have a premium account and that's about 2 months back.

From what I can vaguely remember, the sideloaded normal version works (without a paid subscription), but the resolution is poor.

The Android TV version I managed to load the interface, but I'd already cancelled my Hulu Plus trial by then to test the playback. If time permits and there's a way for me to signup a different trial, I will test it out again and let you know.

I do not think switching ISP will help as the East Asian servers are in Japan(?) and the ping times of 80-100ms are probably typical.

Can play start if the ping test fails? Have not tried starting the trial yet but previously during free play it works.

Have any of you updated to the latest version?

I think some of the apps are Geo locked. i am using a US new playstore login but still i dont see apps such as Pandora or the new updates from Showtime and Disney.

havent seen Hulu from day one as well.

Thanks for the reply Alvin.

My shield tv finally arrived. I am on myrepublic. Netflix works but Hulu throws me a geo location error.

Weirdly, the same thing happened on my ROKU when I am using Myrepublic DNS. It only worked when I changed the DNS to unotelly. Have yet to test the shield on unotelly as account has expired. Will try tonight.

By the way, anyone installed services like cloudtv, IPTV, etc on the shield tv?

I have gotten a lemon set from Amazon and got to return it.

The set will keep rebooting randomly. Both my remote and controller cannot connect to it.

Anyway my replacement will come on Monday.
