Advanced AI Upscaling
One of the most popular features of the Nvidia Shield TV is the built in AI Upscaling. This amazing feature can upscale even the lowest resolutions (480p) to look like 4K quality.
This features adds an unbelievable Sharpening to the video, and can turn even the lowest quality to a much more clear, and vivid video quality.

In the 8.2 update, the Nvidia Shield TV can now upscale videos as low as 360p to 4K quality.
Today’s upgrade adds more UHD 4K upscaling support from 360p to 1440p content. And on 2019 SHIELD TV Pros, we added support for 60fps content. Now SHIELD can upscale live sports on HD TV and HD video from YouTube to 4K with AI. In the weeks ahead, following an update to the NVIDIA Games app in September, we’ll add 4K 60fps upscaling to GeForce NOW.
Customise Nvidia Shield TV Remote
Another big change is the ability to customise the menu button on the Nvidia Shield TV remote. You can assign custom actions and app launched from inside the Shield Settings.
In addition to an action assigned to a single press, users can now configure a custom action for double press and long press. With over 25 actions available, the SHIELD remote is now the most customizable remote for streamers.
You can now also customise the TV/Projector and other inputs from the Nvidia Shield TV.
More to Be Enthusiastic About
We take pride in SHIELD being a streaming media player enthusiasts can be, well, enthusiastic about. With our latest software upgrade, we’re improving our IR and CEC volume control support.
These upgrades include support for digital projectors, and allowing functionality when SHIELD isn’t active. It also adds IR volume control when using the SHIELD TV app, and when you’ve paired your Google Home with SHIELD. The 2019 SHIELD remote adds IR control to change the input source on TVs, AVRs and soundbars.
Additionally, earlier SHIELD generations — both 2015 and 2017 models — now have an option to match the frame rate of displayed content.
We’ve added native SMBv3 support as well, providing faster and more secure connections between PC and SHIELD. SMBv3 now works without requiring a PLEX media server.
