    why am I getting ~ $288 delivered ?

    •  

      Is your card already set to AUD?

    •  

      I got $236AUD delivered to Melbourne

      •  

        Can anyone else confirm that they're getting theirs shipped outside the US? I ordered mine with a shipito address (forgot to change) and customer service said they can't change the delivery address to a non-US one.

        •  

          Well yeah, we all can.

          More than likely if you were just trying to change the address from somewhere in Australia to another address (like from your home to work address) you easily could, but I can understand why they won't change it to another country with regards to potential fraud.

          Imagine if someone got onto your account and then asked it to be sent to Nigeria because 'you' wanted it to be :P

        •  

          @Porthos: That would be fine, however the CSR said the items do not ship to the destination address. I've change addresses before on other items and it doesn't care about country changes.

        •  

          @roflcopter: Well what can I say, clearly it has worked for all of us that we have been able to ship it to Australia!!

  •  

    yes it is

  •  

    Shield TV Pro = $US 249.99
    Just grabbed one.

    •  

      hope you clicked the "with remote" one

      •  

        Actually, the + remote options tell me it doesn't ship here. Does the remote promotion require you to explicitly chose the + remote options?

        Edit: Ignore. It's just the listing, I can click through the order fine and pick an Australian delivery address.

  •  

    can someone tell me what this device do ?

  •  

    How do you get it $227 delivered? Mine is $236.75 with standard shipping (the slowest)

  •  

    Yes what does it do?

  •  

    are these compatible with amd? i assume the way nvidia is the answer is no

    •  

      What are you talking about? It's an android box that you need to connect to a tv.

      • +2 votes

        the shield allows game streaming from a PC with nvidia GPU. mp3police is asking whether it will work with an AMD machine.

        (the answer is no, not compatible with PCs using AMD, afaik.)

    I just got on chat and got a $25 credit to my account since I bought it a couple weeks ago for $175. Amazon is cool.

    And it's from USA so what about the voltage and type of plug?im about to buy a device minix z64 for $300 approx and will have Lodi etc etc all installed and tech comes and installs in my house, and have ongoing help and support all the time,I'm taking this is same thing but I may need to set it up myself,but does it do same or more than what I'm getting,ok no support and installing myself with this products on here but is it better and what can it do confused

  •  

    Don't use the Amazon conversion rate of $A1.44 for every $US1.00. It is a crappy rate. Depending on your rip off banking institution it may be better to chance your bank conversion rate + the conversion charge.

  •  

    And ordered. Cheers OP!

    This can replace my old media player in my bedroom. Probably overkill for what it is, but can't hurt for this price :)

    SCORED!!

    Agreed on the post above, but the Minix boxes use Andoid mobile apps, whereas the Shield uses proper TV apps, hence 4k Netflix vs 720p.

    Finally with this Shield I can have 4K Netflix + Kodi + Plex on the same box, and ditch my ATV…

    •  

      hence 4k Netflix vs 720p.

      Its not even that. Netflix is SD for non approved hardware, let alone the 4k the shield gives us.

    • -1 vote

      I'm confused don't know anything about any of these boxes but on what I mentioned above many say best thing purchased and love it,and get to watch anything the want pretty much.
      I have no 4K tv yet in fact older tvs but still do me.
      I am currently set up with three Apple tvs in three different rooms with Netflix and stream from my iPad with some other apps.
      But just not got a clue on this offer or what I maybe about to buy local.
      Also what plug does the above come with?is it not 110v and what if it's a dud or breaks down its not got oz warranty?

      •  

        if youre using netflix already, you want to make damn sure you are getting a device that is approved for HD, not SD. You should already be on HD with the apple tv.

        •  

          Not sure what you mean? Trying to compare what I'm thinking of getting to what's on offer on here and what it means to have one or the other.

  • -1 vote

    So maybe the shield is more suited for people with the best and newest tvs?
    Just found the add and wondered if this is better buy than what I maybe looking to get and why

    •  

      As above, the boxes you are looking at are hack jobs with mobile (OLD mobile Android) installed. You say you watch Netflix. The boxes you are looking at will only offer SD Netflix, not HD, I don;t mean 4K, I mean normal HD you should expect to get.

      •  

        Yes I watch Netflix but these are on my Apple TV I'm not sure what this post can do better than what I posted,I can watch pretty much all I want not sure if same with this?

        •  

          The things you are considering buying can do what they can do because of Kodi add ons, these are things you can do yourself. You are paying someone $100+ to do it for you on a device running an operating system that is not quite ideal, and soon to be two iterations old.

        •  

          so I take I maybe a fool going for such device I can get it for as low as $280 but I need to install myself I'm sure otherwise 300 installed and demo etc but the list is endless on what I can watch or get,maybe I just don't have enough knowledge of what these apps can do out there like Kodi etc
          They also asked me to do a test on my internet by doing so online and and asked if I had plenty of gb which would be required if screaming a lot,but I get of live and on deman stuff,the list is endless maybe what they have in there box is unique or it's the apps they have in it that is,how do I know that I would get the same on this machine posted,is this not more a games machine and regardless of getting the bix I was going to get or this I can't have Ethernet cable it would all need to be done through wifi as phone point and modem in kitchen and tv about 20ft away.
          The reason of getting the box he offers is the stuff I can watch or get and,can move from room to room and never having to pay for anything again it's all there to find in box,on demand,live sports games,overseas similar to Foxtel etc I could go on is this not limited on what it can show or be added to it,I wish I knew more about what's on offer here and what's on offer from them.

        • -1 vote

          im sure he is making money from it as he probably makes a bit on the side from it but get very good feedback about people who have purchased and use and his support ad cone back and buy more,but maybe the opt for easy option and get someone else to install do all the work and not look into it and see if better or what value for money I'm getting.
          Let's say it was mention the same box would cost me $280 in job hift not installed with anything etc looked it up and there was no same box but a better box,so maybe telling me porkys

          @bwatt99:

          MiniX Z64 $187 - http://www.expansys.com.au/minix-neo-z64-64-bit-mini-pc-andr...

          The rest you are paying for their labour in installing Kodi and tweaks, it would take then less than 5 mins to load the .kodi folder with all the setup pre-done. You are then paying for them to help you with any issues you will have. Which you will have.

        •  

          so would an average guy not too tech savvy but not daft either lol could do it? And would more or less be paying him $100 more where I think all stuff is installed I would install get it up,or pay $120 and again I think all stuff installed but they set me up and as saud there ongoing support when things don't work or go wrong etc the get back to you ASAP and help.and not only that as you say it's old tech they are giving us.

          Or do you get this deal and hope it offer the same as what they said I get on minix and if I have trouble setting it up or issues down the line if I'm able to fix.

          Just out of interest is this machine available to buy here and if so what does it cost or is the Amazon deal such a good one?
          Also what does one go for it getting this 16gb or 500gb?

          @bwatt99:

          Based on the questions you're asking, you might be better paying more for a worse device and know that someone will be there to help you through any issues you have.

        •  

          he makes it out there the best boxes around but I was going for box 2 as was mid range of the choice of three boxes and cause I don't have 4K or 3D tv did not see any point in more expensive box,but who knows when I may upgrade my tvs soon as they are getting old but still work fine for me

    • -1 vote

      all new tvs now are smart tvs , and some even have games and android . so bit pointless really and why it is flopping.

  •  

    Just being a silent, expandable (SD & USB3) kodi box justifies the purchase.

    Games are a bonus.

    I sideloaded openarena (quake 3) and that works a treat - it looks like it can be a very capable emulation station too.

    It's not perfect yet, but it is the best option out there at the right price. Anyone tried a hdhomerun with it?

    • +1 vote

      lots of people have on whirlppol. I'm using dvblink addon on mine.

      •  

        interesting - so you can use a cheap usb tuner with it (plugged into a synology nas for instance)?

        • +2 votes

          Yes. I have 4 tuners (2x dual USB) you have to buy the dvblink software though. Apparently there is work going on so that the shield can support tv dongles natively. Not sure where its at with that. I find the USB dongles overheat in the lounge anyway, so I keep em in my "server room" and serve the TV to the lounge.

    •  

      I respectfully disagree (vs. latest Raspberry Pi)

  • -2 votes

    So if the boxes I was going to buy are hacked I take these are not and so some apps or places I wanted to watch from might not work on this machine.
    As you can understand after a quick search I did find this box I mentioned is or sees to be older but maybe what the guy does or can do is worth the rest I just don't have a clue but feel I maybe buying old tech

    •  

      Look, it's different for different people, but I can't fathom how anyone could possibly buy any of the items in your list over a Nvidia Shield under the current deal. If I wouldn't already have equivalent tech for my use coming out of my ears I'd get one myself. Any of the items from your list, not a chance.

  • +1 vote

    Thanks got one. Anyone knows what voltage does this device take? Hope it is compatible with AUS voltage.

  •  

    Anyone tried the cloud games on this thing? I think servers are in America so it will be unplayable in Australia.

  •  

    Thanks OP just bought one

  •  

    Serious question… I have a ps4, xbone, synology nas and chromecast. Are there any significant benefits adding this to my setup?

    • +3 votes

      you need to complete the whole set.

      •  

        Uh come again??

        •  

          Obviously, he wasn't giving you a serious answer. It really depends on whether it gives you anything you need. If you've got all you need with your current setup, then no, there are no benefits to getting this.

        •  

          @daerka:

          Ina sense you're stating the obvious by saying its utility depends on whether it fulfills a need.

          Guess what I'm asking is whether there may be other things people use it for that I'm unaware of / that I cannot do with my current setup which I may get from this

        •  

          @devpress: Do you have local content on your NAS, i.e. videos, you want to stream to your TV and your current setup isn't already capable? Or it doesn't allow for the fancy setup you'd get with Plex or Kodi? The Shield could do this for you. That would be one use case. That said, does the Shield do HEVC? Edit: A quick read says yes, so it should cover most current formats.

        •  

          @daerka:
          I have a Synology, and I use the Shield as my media player via Kodi. Neither the PS4, X1 or Chromecast can do what this can do for media playback, not even close.

        •  

          @devpress: If you have nvidia graphics card on your computer and want to stream games to TV then it can be one of the reasons. You can play games from the cloud is another.

          Apart from gaming as snuke says Kodi/PLEX capability is way ahead of competition. And it has real droid TV apps (which are not the mobile version).

          You can sell your chromecast - it's built-in Nvidia device.

        •  

          @snuke: While I don't have a Shield for this purpose, I completely agree. Got a Synology NAS myself and numerous Kodi clients.

    Sweet! Thanks OP!

    Hey guys, trying not to go overboard here, but the only real difference between the Pro and standard is the 500GB HDD, can anyone highlight to me why you would need so much storage on this device, and is the 16gb version able to have expandable memory on an SD card or USB HDD for example?

    • +1 vote

      As it stands with Android 5.1.1 installed, there are issues with writing to external media. Marshmallow fixes all of this, and the Shield is supposed to have before the end of the year. At that point, the 500Gb makes far less sense.

  •  

    Also does paying with AMEX assist the conversion rate at all does anyone know?

  • +1 vote

    I'm looking to replace my boxee box and wdtv live with this. Any reason to go with the Pro 500GB over the 16GB?

    • +2 votes

      no. the 500gb drive is not replaceable/upgradeable, and adds noise.

      I have a 128gb micro sd in my 16gb shieldtv, with media sourced from a nas

    Copped 1…Really hope NBA League Pass works on it…Cheers OP

    • +1 vote

      I use it for league pass, the app works but there is no NBA TV link and you need to log in each time as it doesn't cache your account details.

      I've contacted the app developers many times regarding it and they say they don't support android TV even though the device comes up as a compatible device when you go to the play store.

    I just bought one for $236.75AUD using Amazons conversion rate (which worked out better for me), I tried using my banks (Westpac) conversion rate and it came to $236.07 + Fees.

    •  

      I am with Westpac, where did you find their current CC exchange rate?
      I could only find this - http://www.westpac.com.au/personal-banking/services/currency...

      •  

        Yep that's the one, just type in the amount in USD and converts it to AUD. I usually use the cash option as it the most accurate but they always seem to tack on the Foreign Exchange fee on top, after the purchase has gone through, hence the "+ fees".

    •  

      I'm not decided on this yet but how can you work out conversion rate from your bank do they have calculator to check,also have Citi bank don't think they charge fees anyone know,or just a crap rate?so how do you know the best way to buy through banks or Amazon as you don't know till you see what's charged right?

  •  

    God wish I knew more about this machine and what I maybe buying tomorrow is this the best on the market right now?when did this come out?

    If I did go for this what is best method/cheapest method to pay us Westpac card Citi bank debit card which I'm sure don't charge fees where as Westpac does or with Amazon sure does not come in at price of what listing says?
