Hi Guys,

I am mainly going to be playing atmos 4k HDR contents off my harddisk and also running netflix 4k atmos in NS.

What is the HDMI cable you guys are using? Normal 4k ones or one of those funky 4k ultra HD 2.0b ones that cost a fortune?

Cheers.
Just go challenger get a premium certified hdmi cable will do. Iogear ones r the most cost effective.

I see it as a powered up android which allows you to have 4k or atmos content on your TV. As with android, sky is the limit, if this set is as powerful as people say it is.

Any apk or apps or streams that can appear on your android phone can appear on your tv, but with high definition.

Mine is arriving next week so I'll let you know how it goes then.

1. no
2. yes, but you under-utilised it if this is what you want.
3. yes, but don't torrent copyrighted material
4a. yes, install an usb hub. but you don't need so many ports, most people use bluetooth mouse/keyboard, controller.
4b proper name is usb hub.
5. You can watch anything you like if you know which apps to install.

For apps there are some exceptions. For example you will not be able to install Starhub Go on the Nvidia Shield TV. But you can cast from phone.

You may or may not be able to install Toggle, but you can cast from phone.

Q3. I don't think Nvidia can know who's torrenting copyrighted material. Maybe only ISP knows?
Q4. USB Hub ok. coz need more space to store videos.
Q5. Don't know any app. Newbies. Any to intro? Like China/HongKong/Taiwan Dramas. Kdrama. Anime. Movie. US TV Series.

Was wondering if Nvidia Shield can be turned on 24/7, so I can stream from office or hotel to watch on my mobile phone.

You miss the point here.

Sure, you can run the plex server 24/7 and access all your media files from the internet.

The main reason to use the Nvidia Shield TV is the enhanced audio and video using Dolby Atmos and Vision when playing media through HDMI on a TV. The media can come from Netflix, Youtube and other paid subscriptions and your own stored content. Sure you can install android apps to stream content from questionable sources (even pirated streams) but most likely you’ll find poor quality, unstable video and risk of infection.

may be you live in the cave for many years.

nowadays people don't have to download, streaming is the norm.

free and good servers are everywhere, if you want to watch on mobile phone, don't have to stream from home.

if you are willing to pay for a small fee, you can stream 4k atmos hdr movies .
