benefits-of-4kGreat news in the streaming community, the NVIDIA Shield TV will get the new 3.2 firmware update in the next days with new, exciting features! More 4K content with new & old apps for the best 4K streaming device. Netflix will be getting also 4K HDR support (starting with the new Marco Polo TV Show), Youtube an exceptional 4K resolution at 60 FPS and both apps will support in-app voice search! But 4K HDR is also making it’s way into gaming; the first game with HDR on the Shield TV will be Paragon.

In the audio department the Shield TV was also already ahead of every competitor. Now things get even better since the new firmware will introduce the Dolby Atmos Pass-Through (TrueHD+Atmos) that already is being supported on KODI, SPMC, MX Player and soon on Plex as well!


Also, we have an important CEC update that was missing, the CEC TV-off support. When CEC is enabled on the device and your TV supports it, the TV is automatically powered on when you wake your Shield and now also powered off.

SHIELD-Powerful_Media_Server-1920x1080Lastly, what came as a big surprise is the new Plex Media Server integration into the NVIDIA Shield TV PRO (that’s the 500GB version). In other words, your Shield TV PRO can be transformed into your next standalone Plex Media Server! The Shield with it’s phenomenal NVIDIA Tegra® X1 can now host the Plex Server so no NAS (Networked Attached Storage) or remote server is needed. Also, HD capable NAS are really expensive (yeah, really!) the Shield TV Plex Server on the other hand will be able to support hardware-accelerated video transcoding (H.264, MPEG2 and HEVC) and with multiple, simultaneous streams! You can even watch a 4K stream or play a game on your Shield while someone else on your network on the same exact time watches a movie from the Plex Server of the Shield on a mobile device, computer or even TV! Crazy, no? No, it’s NVIDIA!

ShieldTV PRO NASBut what if you already have a NAS device? No worries, you can still connect it to your Shield and use the power of the device in order to transcode your streams. You can extend your library even more, simply by connecting a usb external disk drive and the Shield has USB 3.0, remember? Those are features that we saw until today only on PC setup. Pretty amazing…

If after reading everything, you want to know more about this amazing device, feel free to revisit my review on it: Review of the NVIDIA Shield TV by Dimitrology.

Excellent mini TV Box from Beelink that in a super small size delivers performance of bigger devices!
The Beelink MiniMXIII supports the latest HEVC codec (H.265) and also 4K at 60FPS. During my review it performed with a flawless playback on KODI and didn’t hesitate to run all the Android games I’ve tried. The only negative was that the device often when stressed became hot but that din’t influence the performance.
I also loved the building quality, but I also miss the lack of a power on/off LED, just to be sure when I forget the device on.

Himedia Q10 PRO at Amazon
US: http://amzn.to/1TP3v8a
UK: http://amzn.to/1TRdkDR

Review and unboxing of the Himedia Q10 Pro Android TV Box, a high-end device running on Android Lollipop 5.1.1 capable of 4K HDR playback at 60FPS, with 2 Gb of DDR3 RAM and 16 Gb of flash memory.
The Q10 Pro is powered by the 64bit Quad-core A53 CPU and the Mali-720 GPU and also chipsets by Dolby Lab & Huawei Hisilicon for an incredible performance with the latest codec H.265/HEVC and 10bit color depth.
Also the device has a unique hard disk housing with easy installation and anti-vibrating system. That means that you can expand the disk space of the box to whatever size you prefer up to 6TB!
Elegant and high quality aluminum case with a splendid front panel that hosts an LED display and touch capacitive buttons that control the device.
Excellent also the software created by Himedia with attention to details like the cast applications, the default launcher, the media player and the OTA update function.
The included remote control is one of the best I’ve tried on a tv box, perfect grip and functionality, only negative a slight delay on the response which in remote compatible games will be a problem. Getting a proper gamepad solves that easily though.
Gaming with the box is also fantastic, even the most graphically intense games played with no problems at all!
