Kodi / Plex both works well. Plex has a nicer user interface and easier to set up. But Kodi interface is much faster. If you have subtitles + 4k, kodi is less fussy and problematic. Had a lot of problems with plex + 4k + subtitles that i never managed to resolve.

when u said subtitles, is external or embedded that gives problem with plex.

External. Not for all sources. Some external subs are ok. Plex works good for most things. But if i have some issue i'll use kodi. It's fuss-free and works easily. Kodi plays native bluray iso files also.

Hi guys have 2 questions hope you all can help.

1) can viu app be installed on nvidia shield tv? Heard that some mobile phone apps dont work on shield tv? And I think viu app is mobile version in the android playstore.

2) Which nvidia shield tv is the latest one? Read that the newest version seems to be 2017 with an nvidia shield pro being the latest. Saw lazada ppl selling 2019 version which seems like the 2017 version

just bought my Nvidia Shield TV box and installation was simple, HDMI to soundbar HDMI-In and soundbar to TV ARC HDMI, TV remotes controls on/off of all 3 equipment plus volume and the D-pad also controls the selection on the Shield box... happy with it.

tried to play some games on the Shield, some games tells me latency too damn long like over 256ms so cannot work but others like Stickman soccer and Asphalt racing can work smoothly over my home 1Gbps internet.

Got it locally from a shop in Wcega building with a local 12 months warranty.

was researching the same as well and believed that the 2017 is the latest as they pump in all the good spec stuff into the 2017 and therefore it still performs like a beast today. rumours there is a 2019 version but saw on youtube the spec is also the same... i suppose its the software dept they kept beefing up over time
