The Q8 blue tooth pairs with Nvidia shield and connects easily. It has a more robust feel about it. Instead of using the CR battery, you could now just use AAA batteries.
Just go to the menu and find "add a remote" So since the remote has a Bluetooth transmitter …no need for a dongle. So its easy to pair the remote to the Nvidia Shield. I'm going to show you how. So to pair the Q8 with your nvidia shield…
Go to the add remotes in the set up menu. Press & hold the "ok" + "The volume down" button for 3 seconds at the same time.You will see the Bluetooth search on the screen.
Up in the right hand corner of the screen you will see "Remote B009" and ready to go.
This generic Nvidia shield remote is just a fraction of the price and acts like the original remote.
Why pay around $100 for a genuine remote? Its a no brainier. Currently on sale at banggood. Its a bargain. Banggood normal Price is $30.55
Best of luck guys
