Wow. Tested grid. Even on my Singtel 5ghz wireless lag is very occasional. Most apparent in fighting games like Street Fighter... On other stuffs like Batman lag is not noticeable. Gonna try Ethernet connection tonight. But so far impressed.

Gonna side load emulators for Dreamcast later and test.

YouTube 'chromecasting' capabilities is God sent. Easily able to watch YouTube (even iOS) on TV easily and control fast forward, etc. AOA and Apink never looked better on my big TV. They already looked good on my iMac 27 Retina.
Also able to 'AirPlay' my photos, music from my ip6+ by third party app. Using the lite version now. Forgot the name. Any advice for the best as I don't mind paying.

Android games like Asphalt8 works like a charm. No issues.

Still have some issues with my Gamestream. Troubleshoot tonight.
When that works, it's my SGD270 well spent!! Even now with all the free games on Grid, think the cost already wrote off.

For some reason..the selection on the google play store is limited.

What i did was to browse for apps on the web version of google play store

Sideloading shouldn't be an issue. But really nifty machine.

If only my Gamestream work.

finally got my unit after 2.5 weeks of delay from UPS. Anyone noticed the power adapter has the SG safety mark logo on it? Possible that some local distributor is planning to sell this in SG?

Hi guys,

Planning to buy this, but just wanna check two more things before clicking buy..

Netflix with MyRepublic Teleport (or VPN) can work?
TVMC (or XBMC or Kodi) works well ?

Thanks

Thanks bro. Bought it after reading your reply. Hope this can replace my Chromecast (for casting YouTube) and fire tv stick (for kodi n Netflix).

Strange that you're getting big latency for Grid, as some other users here is saying that the latency isn't noticeable.

Will post my feedback once I get mine!

Btw, anyone for problems with WiFi or Ethernet connection? Read Amazon reviews seems to be quite common problem...

Been playing around abit more.
Doom plays amazing on the Shield. Was playing it for hours and the gfx and sound were top notch.

For the grid, apparently it improved. Maybe I got used to it (latency) but I started to pull of super moves easily on Street Fighter. Before that I was noticing some slight lag but not now.

For Netflix, what is the way to view and open account? Noob here on vpn and those sorts so pls advise.

Gamestream started to work now but laggy. Will optimise.

Download "Hola Free VPN" app (android/ios) then turn on the unblocker. If hola is working, you should be able to access Netflix.com now. Sign up the free 1 month account. You just need to put in any US accOunt (use Google maps search for any address postcode) then fill in your credit card details using the us postcode.

Once you successfully created the account, you can also use hola on your shield tv as vpn (if you're on myrepublic dun need vpn)

Then just go download a Netflix apk from external sources (because getting Netflix from Google play store is another troublesome journey)
