Connect the nvidia shield tv to your tv
You can change the sound source on ur tv to use internal speaker or ARC HDMI for reciever.

Do u connect nividia shield to a receiver ? Right now the shield tv need the receiver to be turn on in order for the shield to sw on as well. How can I twitch the setting so that the shield tv can switch on without switching on the receiver

Just wanted to chime in with a quick impressions post. I bought the shield tv after some deliberation, mainly because i had the mibox before and it was annoying with the random bugs / shut-downs, video file incompatibility, so i wasn't confident of another android tv box.

But the shield has been very impressive so far. It is lightning fast and extremely fluid. Navigation through the menus is a complete breeze. Much faster than the mibox.

Streaming 4K in plex can occasionally stutter, but this may be due to the fault of my network rather than the player, so I've hooked it up via ethernet. Works well, no trouble fast forwarding even 4k videos.

Video quality is outstanding, subtitles are where they should be. Everything just works really well. If you're on the fence, just get it.

I also have both Shield and Mibox but I didn't find any major issue with Mibox. In fact, if your usage does not include games or 4K streaming, Mibox should be good enough. What are the issues that you are facing with Mibox? The following are some issues that I am seeing but they are not deal breaker:

- Unable to chromecast to Mibox in standby mode, Shield is ok.
- Occasionally pressing power button on remote will put Mibox in standby then on again, need to press a second time for Mibox to go into standby.
- The remote on Mibox is definitely better than the one for Shield (too thin, tend to disappear into sofa, volume hard to adjust, need to charge often, no power button).

For the most part, the mibox is fine. But it's overall not as polished a package as the shield, which is understandable given the price point. The video output quality of the mibox is also not as good as shield.

You just mentioned one of the bugs regarding the power button, though I personally didn't encounter that. Just goes to show it's a buggy device. I had random crashes in some apps that I spent a lot of time googling for solutions, but couldn't solve.

Yes, mibox's '4k' is almost like a beta implementation

But there will not be any warranty on items ordered through Amazon or they need to be sent back if any issue happens . It’s available on Q0010 but no running offers and it’s again an imported model but the seller gives warranty for 1 year.

Not true. I got 1 faulty nvidia gamepad. I did a live chat with nvidia via their website and they replaced it for me. I got mine from Amazon.

If the tv have a build-in DVB-T2 tuner, just get an external antenna to get local HD channels. You dont require the nvidia shield tv for local HD channel. But if you want those overseas channels or IPTV, then get the shield.

do you have any recommended usb tuners?

For ease of use, get a dvb-t2 tuner for the tv will do. Nvidia Shield Tv is an android box with gaming capability. It gg to be underutilized if you gg to use it just for tv channel. There are cheaper android box out there with paid iptv that support both local HD and overseas channels. You can consider those options.
