It's the singtel cast app. I've also installed miotv go on it as well, slightly better but still has framerate issues.

Using alternative apps now but they require vpn.
Bro mind sharing which apps? Canít tahan the frame rate issues anymore

If you need Dolby Vision in general, or if you need Dolby Atmos under Netflix, then yes.

If not, no need.

In that case, it is the SingTel Cast app problem, buying the new Shield TV 2019 versions will not help.

Some paid apps mentioned here, like Fox Soccer2Go, US$19.99 per month, you need to use VPN as it is geo-blocked to US.

There are other paid apps (legal streaming services at the foreign countries/regions) as well if you want to use VPN.

For example if you do not mind Chinese language, then PPTV VIP. That is pretty cheap (RMB 60 or S$12 per month for all things soccer). Not so sure how good the quality is though with the China VPN like Transocks or SpeedIn.

Ordered mine on launch day, reaching 8 Nov
Silly Q - will you just need a 2 to 3 pin converter for the US model?

Try the app store controller. It's been upgraded with options for three types of "controllers" - swipepad, track pad and dpad. It also has a keyboard so much easier to type.

Lemme guess, the thumbsticks are sticky? they don't center well?


If it the case, just dismantle the controller and clean it. Works for me.

Actually whatís the point of buying the pro model when GeForce now is not supported in Asia? What do you guys use the shield for? Emulator?

Got a Question for the bros that are using Nvidia Sheid. How does GeForce Now works? Do you load the games from your PC and graphics card to be stream across to your Nvidia Box and TV to play on?

How is the gaming experience on GeForce Now, any lag?

The controller battery runs down very fast and I am not an intensive user.

Also occasionally my remote fails to connect shield but the controller can and vice versa. Already ruled out local usb 3 interferences ..
