Android nVidia Shield TV (2015 & 2017 Models) - UPDATED: May 25, 2018
#33
Got the new Shield an hour back! Haven't tested thoroughly. Just some initial comments:

1) What many wanted to know: No, the new Shield doesn't support YouTube HDR in this update.

2) HDR output is no longer limited to 4K >50Hz refresh rates. It does work at 23.976/24.000Hz, but the output will be YCbCr 4:2:2. This may not be good for all TVs esp. Samsung SUHDs. In fact, all 24p content is output with YCbCr 4:2:2 if you enable refresh rate switching.

3)It doesn't look like nVIDIA has implemented IEC61937 passthrough. They seem to have stuck with the RAW passthrough.

4) SPMC may need some tweaking. I noticed video freezing for a few sec. at the start of the playback.

More later...

Update 1/22/2017
IEC61937 HD audio passthrough in indeed implemented, but there is a caveat: Refresh rate switching may break it (http://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=...pid2506809)
