Downloader App for Android TV devices like the Nvidia Shield TV, Xiaomi Mi Box, Sony TV, Philips, TCL, etc is back on the Google Play Store. But finding the Downloader app is a little tricky right now. So in this video I will show you how to easily find the Downloader app and install it on your Android TV device. And if it is the first time you use the Downloader application and you are new to the Android TV world, I will also show you how to install an application, sideload to be exact. In this example I’m gonna use the Puffin TV Browser, the fixed version that can still download files on your Android TV device.


The link I used for the Puffin TV Browser that can download files on Android TV: http://dimitrology.com/puffintv

Google Dislikes Sideload

The thing is that Google doesn’t want users to sideload apps anymore. They made it clear that they do not like apps that give users the ability to download apps outside from the Google Play Store for Android TV. That means that also the new version of Downloader may be at risk. My personal advice, hurry up to get it before it’s gone again!

Why I will not buy the New Nvidia Shield TV 2019

The 2015 Nvidia Shield TV came from the future. But the New Nvidia Shield TV 2019 came from…the past!

Before getting into the video I need to say 2 things. The 1st is that I am a big Nvidia Shield TV fan and I am very disappointed into making this video and 2nd that I already own 2 Nvidia Shield TV devices: The nvidia Shield TV 2015 and the Nvidia Shield TV PRO. Both have been serving me daily with great success and while they are top performers, in these 4 years almost 5 to be exact, I loved them even more. That is because as any device, especially a streaming / gaming device, had some minor issues but with the constant updates Nvidia has fixed everything and added even more. The Nvidia support on both devices has been incredible and no other company has ever done such an amazing work on supporting their devices. With every update they keep up with Android’s latest security patches and keep improving the performance while also adding new and exciting features. And one more thing that needs to be said, is that the Nvidia Shield TV has a great community that has an active part on improving the device. The Nvidia team gives big importance to the community and they always consider opinions and requests in order to deliver the best support in the streaming and cable cutting community. Without Nvidia, Android TV would never be so great at this point of time.

Nvidia Shield TV 2015 version

As mentioned before, the 2015 Shield TV really came from the future. With a stellar performance that was not even close to the next streaming devices that were powered by Amlogic, AllWinner or Rockchip SoC’s. That was thanks to an exceptional GPU with 256 CUDA cores, the Tegra X1 CPU, 3 GB of RAM, 2 X USB 3.0, micro USB 2.0, SD card slot, IR receiver, HDMI 2.0b, Gigabit Ethernet and Dual Band AC WiFi a 16GB SSD for the “normal version” or a 500GB hd for the PRO version, the 2015 Shield was a device made by aliens!

nvidia shield tv 2015 vs 2017

2017 Update

Then unfortunately with the update of the device we noticed also some minor cut backs. So, we lost the SD card slot and the micro USB for the 16GB version of Nvidia’s Shield TV 2017, that remained only to the PRO version until we lost also the PRO version completely. The remote control passed from a rechargeable battery to a 2 X CR-2032 3V battery which for some people was better, for me personally wasn’t an improvement, I hate it when I need to get new batteries when I can easily charge the device every now and then.

Nvidia Shield TV Pro 2019

The New 2019 Nvidia Shield TV

And now the brand new Nvidia Shield TV 2019 comes out in two versions. A $150 Nvidia Shield TV which is essentially a cylindrical TV Dongle which I would have loved if it was 50-80$ cheaper even though it lacks a USB port and comes with 2GB of RAM and a merely 8GB of internal storage. The Nvidia Shield TV PRO on the other hand still lacks in everything if compared with the 2015 model except for the new CPU Tegra X1+, the addition of Dolby Vision and the new feature the AI Upscale. While the AI upscale and Dolby Vision are both great features, I don’t think it is something that is worth upgrading from my 2015 model. You get the same small SSD of 16GB (hello!? This 2019!!!) The new CPU on the other part is faster and Nvidia claims that is about 25% faster than the previous generation. While going through various benchmarks that can be easily found online, the actual difference seems to be less. At best at around 10% but main thing is that the real-life performance is actually the same. And overall as a device compared with the 2015 model, we lost the included gamepad, the SD card slot (which for some reason is available only to the small model) which was really handy to have. Now if you do not have a Nvidia Shield TV then by all means, the 2019 model is a great buy for $199. You can have an incredible experience in streaming and of course gaming with the Nvidia Games is absolutely phenomenal. Also, it is worth mentioning, as I have already written to an article on my website Google Stadia will also launch too. But at the same time I think that the 2015 would have been a better choice if it was available in the market, even at the same price. Streaming and gaming performance would be the same, you would have more connectivity options as long as the Dolby Vision addition is not that important to you.

Nvidia Shield TV 2019 Remote

The positive about the Shield TV 2019

What it is a great addition on both 2019 Shield TV and Shield TV PRO is the new remote control. While I may not love the Toblerone looks of it, it seems much easier to use and with some extra buttons that are greatly appreciated. And this time, at least the batteries are AAA that can be found way easier than the CR-types. My only objection is that the appreciated remote finder would work with a physical button on the device, instead from the UI which means you still need a remote to find your remote!? But great news is that the new remote control will be also sold separately for $29.99 and works with older models as well. When it comes to Nvidia you have to give it to them. Even though they launch new products, they still support exceptionally the older models as well. While I will not upgrade to the new Nvidia Shield TV 2019, I will still suggest it as a best buy because it blows the competition. But I am also disappointed since I was definitely was expecting more. Maybe with the launch of the upcoming Nintendo Switch, with which they usually share the same SoC, we will get another device from the future. But for now, I’m gonna stick with my older models which I expect to gain value in the used marketplace too!

What do you think?

Will you upgrade to the new Shield TV and if yes to which model? Also if you are new to the amazing world of Android TV, will the new models be your next companion?

Sideload Apps On Android TV

Best and Easiest Way To Sideload Apps On Android TV devices likes the Nvidia Shield TV, Xiaomi Mi Box S, Mecool KM9 Pro, Sony TV and any Android TV. Now you can sideload apks in a very simple and fast way! Lately the trend by Google is to avoid sideloading apps, or at least in an easy way on Android TV devices. But this is an option that is very useful since not all the applications are available on the Android TV Google Play Store. That makes sideloading apps a must for any Android TV user.

Easiest Way To Sideload Apps With Google Drive

If you struggle to sideload apps on Android TV, then look no further. You can now easily download Android apps on your computer or smartphone and then launch the app on your Android TV device. This is achieved by using the Gdrive application, Google Drive, on any device. Google Drive works on any operating system: Android, Windows, iOS, MacOS and more. Then on your Android TV device you can easily access that cloud space by using a File Manager. My preferred and free that has this ability is X-plore File Manager that can be found on the Android TV Google Play Store. Also ES Explorer works great too but lately I cannot find on Google Play for Android TV devices.

Nvidia Shield TV pro and Shield TV Dongle 2020 model

We all heard rumours, we all saw some leaks but this time is official. We have the first official leaks of the two Nvidia Shield TV 2020 models that were pubblished by mistake on Amazon. And as a matter of fact we will have two different models. The first almost identical to the previous models as far as aesthetics are concerned and the second it is Nvidia’s response to the Amazon Firestick.

Nvidia Shield TV PRO 2020

Starting at $199 the brand new NVIDIA Shield TV Pro 2020 is powered by the Nvidia’s proprietary CPU, the Tegra X1+ processor. NVIDIA claims that it makes the SHIELD TV Pro 25 percent faster than its predecessor. The Tegra X1+ is now paired with 3GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage as well.

Nvidia Shield TV Pro 2020

On the back of the New Shield TV Pro 2020 we find 2 X USB 3.0, an HDMI 2.0, a Gigabit Ethernet port and the same power in socket.

In addition to the new Tegra X1+ SoC, the SHIELD TV Pro expands the HDR support of the SHIELD TV with the inclusion of Dolby Vision HDR support along with Dolby Atmos and Dolby Digital Plus. Another interesting feature is the HD to 4K upscaling using Artificial Intelligence. That is something that personally can’t wait to try since it looks very promising and this is Nvidia we are talking about.

Nvidia Shield TV Dongle

And here comes at $179 also the NVIDIA Shield TV Dongle. In a very compact device Nvidia brings the same CPU and same capabilities of the Nvidia Shield TV Pro, a part from the 2 X USB 3.0 and adds also a micro SD. Other than the AC WiFi as the bigger brother, the dongle will also have in the sam super-compact device a built-in power supply so essentialy you just need to attach the power cable to the device. Of course being a powerful device that it is, it will not be powered just by a USB cable as the Amazon Firestick. The perfomance gap is immense amaong the two devices as it is also the price.

Nvidia Shield TV Dongle

New Remote Control

Both devices share the same remote control. I was a huge fan of the first remote control. The device and build quality was top notch (especially the model with the re-chargable battery) and it was only lacking in the volume department. That touch control was cool but in all honesty not so practical. In a bold move, Nvidia decided to rebuild the remote and the design feels strange in some extent. Instead of building on top of the very loved remote they decided to play it safe while adding a lot of buttons and dedicating a button to Netflix too. This time the remote comes with AAA batteries and also supports backlight. Great the addition of a remote finder so you will never lose your remote again. I will not share more on my feelings on the remote until I use it because knowing Nvidia I believe it is better than it looks.

Nvidia Shield TV 2020 Price and Availablity

As metioned before, the two models come at a very interesting price. The Nvidia Shield TV pro sales for $199 which is the same price as the Nvidia Shield TV when it first launched 4 years ago. The Nvidia Shield TV Dongle will beat the price of the predecessor for $179 which is the price that the “old” model costs right now on Amazon. Both devices will launch on October 28th and I can’t wait to test them both. The devices were both list on Amazon but now the listing has been removed.

Puffin TV Browser Fix Download Error

If you use an Android TV then you should already know that Puffin TV Browser is the best out there. Not only it is easy to use but also has a unique feature. Puffin TV Browser can download files. This is a fantastic feature that with the latest update we lost. I’m not really sure why this happened. Fact is that now if you try to download something on any Android TV device like the Nvidia Shield TV, Xiaomi Mi Box S, Mecool Km9 Pro, etc you will get a Download Error. The message displays is “not supported. Download is not supported on this device yet”.
We can fix this easily by installing an older version of Puffin TV Browser back to our devices.

ROKU 2019 Lineup

Roku has officially presented to the public the Roku 2019 lineup of streaming devices. The two most popular devices by Roku are the Roku Ultra and the revamped Roku Express. Both are popular for different reasons since they are also prices on the two extremes.

ROKU Express +

Starting at $29.99 the Roku Express is the most affordable Roku device and is intended for the first time users that get in touch with this new world. It can only stream in HD, so no 4K. This version is smaller even than the previous version, which quite frankly was already small.

ROKU Ultra 2019

The Ultra on the other hand looks exactly the same as the previous model and it is priced for $99.99. Not that pricey for the flagship device of Roku. On the inside though, now is powered by a faster quad-core CPU and more memory. The company states that the Roku Ultra is 17 percent faster when launching channels and up to 30 percent when loading apps. Also the remote has changed a little by introducing 2 fully-customizable shortcut buttons (buttons 1 and 2).

On the back of the device we find an Ethernet port, microSD slot and USB port as well. The “lost remote” button is also present which is beloved by a lot of users.

Roku Ready To Extend Overseas

While Roku’s popularity goes through the roof right now in the US, they didn’t received the same attention overseas. That is about to change since Roku is determined to extend their global presence. The new Roku Express, Premiere and Streaming Stick are coming to Latin America and the UK as a first attempt. More will also follow.

Roku 2019 Lineup

Roku OS 9.2 new voice capabilities

  • Set sleep timers on Roku TVs: Roku TV customers can use their voice remote or Roku mobile app to quickly set a sleep timer on their TV by saying things like “Go to sleep at 11 p.m.”
  • Search by movie quotes: Enjoy finding movie results by searching for the top quotes from thousands of popular movies across the Roku platform.
  • 4K in Roku search: Use Roku Voice to say “4K movies” to see results for a variety of popular 4K movies. Entering a text search for “4K” will now return results including the 4K Movies & TV Zone.
  • Support for Roku Media Player: Customers who use the Roku Media Player to play their personal music, movies and photos can now use Roku Voice to find, play and control stored files by using commands such as “Play,” “Skip,” and more.
  • Control multiple Roku devices with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant: Customers who use Alexa-enabled devices and/or Google Assistant to control their Roku device can now control multiple Roku devices in their homeDirect-to-playback. “Play Brooklyn Nine Nine.” Hulu opens and starts playing immediately.

Roku vs Android TV vs Apple vs Amazon

It is getting always harder to compete in the living room set top box each day. With the already established Android TV lineups which keeps growing and receiving a lot of love from the big boys and Amazon, the addition of Disney+ and Apple+ and a mix of other players, the game for the TV Box will be a hard one to compete. But that is all for the best of the consumer and I personally love it. Google already plans to release Google Stadia to the Android TV, Apple is also ready to launch Apple Arcade on the Apple TV and who knows what else should we expect in the year 2020 that looks that will be the year of the TV Box / Set Top Box.

Xiaomi Mi Box S 4K HDR Android TV Box Review & Benchmark

The Xiaomi Mi Box S is the successor of the previous Android TV Box best seller, the Xiaomi Mi Box 3. The Mi Box S, also called Xiaomi Mi Box 4 in China, is an updated but yet very similar version of the previous model. It comes to fill in the gap between the NVIDIA Shield TV and the Amazon FireTV Stick. With it’s price and performance, it does exactly that. Offers a great alternative as an Android TV OS device, with a built-in ChromeCast UHD and great 4K HDR performance on Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Kodi, Hulu, Youtube, Plex, etc.

The Xiaomi runs Android TV, and unlike the Android mobile OS, this particular platform doesn’t have a thousand different micro-variations depending on manufacturer. Android TV is almost identical whether you run it on a NVIDIA Shield TV or a Sony Bravia TV or as in our case, a Mi Box S. In the particular the Xiaomi Mi Box S is powered by Android 8.1.0 Oreo out of the box.

Xiaomi Mi Box S 4K HDR Android TV Box 8.1 Oreo

With a good score on Antutu v6, unfortunately the 3D engine of Antutu version 7 kept crashing on the Xiaomi Mi Box S. It got an average of just below 35000 and on GeekBench it scored 645 on single-core and 1804 on multi-core.

Xiaomi Mi Box S 4K HDR Android TV Box Antutu Benchmark

Great also the performance of the Dual Band WiFi 2.4G and 5G ac of the Xiaomi Box S maxing out my internet speed 180 – 20 MB.

Overall it has a great performance, superb 4K playback on Netflix, Amazon Prime Video which you have to sideload in order to install it but make sure to install the Android TV version (not the one for the mobiles). Also on KODI 18 Leia it will play any kind of format 4K UHD without issues. The response of the device is always excellent and overall you will have a more than enjoyable experience.

You can get the Xiaomi Mi Box S with a special discount by using the coupon DMiBoxS for a lower price $53.99 ($16 OFF!) from: http://shrsl.com/1f8jr

Now you can get the Xiaomi MI Android TV (Official International Version) on a coupon sale for the low price of just $66.99 / €55.54 / £49.17 and with free world-wide shipping by using the discount coupon TOPCXM3. It is one of the best Android TV devices you can get right now with great quality and excellent performance. Running on Android TV OS comes with a unique, small in size design and an excellent remote control with voice control. Of course the design similarities with the Apple TV, the Amazon Fire TV and the NVIDIA Shield TV can not pass unnoticed but that is exactly the selling point of this device by Xiaomi. A direct competitor to those streaming devices, with no restrictions and with a very interesting price!1479174385641219

Spec-wise the Xiaomi Mi Android TV may not seem what you exactly expect from a top Android TV Box. Quad-core Cortex-A53 CPU clocked at 2.0Ghz, a Penta-core Mali 450 GPU, 2GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage. But everything combined together work absolutely in perfect synch. In fact it is one of the smoothest Android TV devices in the range of under $100 whether you just want to use it as a Media Center or in order to play games! It also supports Dual Band WiFi b/g/n/ac with an internal antenna, an HDMI 2.0 port for real 4K at 60 frames per second, an optical / SPDIF output, 1 X USB 2.0 port and an AV port in case you have an older TV or a projector.

The included bluetooth remote control is fantastic. It has built-in voice commands so you remote control the Xiaomi Mi Android TV just by talking to it, a feature that only some devices have like the NVIDIA Shield and the Amazon Fire TV. Also being a Bluetooth remote is also much better and more than the necessary in order to control every aspect of your device. The included AAA batteries is also something we are not used to see in most devices on the market.

Also when using KODI 17.6 the Xiaomi Mi Android TV performs in an exceptional way. Everything works as it should and even on 4K playback at 60 frames per second the device didn’t experience any kind of problems, just flawless playback! The forth-coming version of KODI Leia 18 is also supported and although it is not out officially yet, it has also a great performance on the device. When playing Android games you will also enjoy your experience and since you have unlimited access to the Google’s Android TV Play Store dedicated section with tons of fantastic titles to choose from, combined also to a Xiaomi Gamepad (sold separately but in my opinion is also one of the best gamepads for an Android TV Box or Firestick) you will get top gaming experience! Netflix is also fully supported meaning you will get the best possible quality, unlike most of the other devices in the market.
