Interested, what the difference between the US version and the one you can get from retail stores in NZ?  Power plug?

I bought one from US last year. Power plug was only issue I noticed. I had a lot of problems getting it to do what I wanted the way I wanted, but no faults. The unit worked as advertised. One thing I can say about Nvidia is the customer service is fantastic, regardless of where you live. They have given me great support. No-one else even comes close.

I have an Nvidia GTX 1080 TI, keen to try the 4K game streaming to 4K TV, did you give that a try, if so work ok?

I got a high end smart TV, and already have Netflix and other popular apps, such as youtube, mirror casting and light box etc

 

 

 

The only thing i don't like Nividia Shield TV, as it doesn't have power on/off button.

 

Sometimes it can wake my tv up during the night. (don't want to disable HDMI control, as i have smart audio system)

 

I don't play games neither, and i already have a NAS to do Kodi (don't use to much anyway)

Sorry, not into gaming and my connection doesn't support 4k. I only bought the Shield for streaming.

I like my shield, but the remote for it really sucks. It's so unresponsive. I'll be waiting on new units reviews to check they fixed it.

I don't even bother using it. I control the Shield through a Flirc so I can use the Harmony One you sold me.

Annoyingly I think we are in the minority. I actually think it's both the remote and a reception fault with Bluetooth in some Shields. I came to that conclusion as I had the same problems (lag and/or missed inputs) with an Xbox One Bluetooth controller on mine as I did with the remote.

 

Buying one of these solved all my problems:

 

https://www.ebay.com/itm/2-4GHz-Q5-Bluetooth-Voice-Remote-Control-Air-Mouse-/332819996121

 

It comes in two models, Bluetooth and 2.4GHz with a dongle. I got the one with the dongle as I'm convinced it's a Bluetooth problem. Voice searching doesn't work, but as that never worked right on the original remote unless I was 3 feet from the Shield anyway it's no great loss.
