ζ1 on Nvidia Shield

Postby Balcmeg » October 6th, 2018, 9:14 am

Hi,
Thinking of exchanging my rpi3 for Nvidia Shield to run my video and audio both Kodi.
I did however read some online posts that the Shields USB audio have problems with high resolution files but does anyone have any input on how well it actually work?

Does ζ1 work "out of the box" with the Shield?

I don't have an Nvidia Shield or know much about it. But are the USB ports on it host or device? Does it support external generic UAC2 USB DACs?

THAT was not an easy thing - I contacted NVIDIA support chat and got the reply that NVIDIA Shield TV only support audio Through HDMI - despite the website clearly stating that it support HighRes audio up to 192k through USB...
I knew more than that guy just by clicking on the technical specification paged for the Shield on their web.

I'll try some forums and see if I can get a reply - or if anyone here have more info while I search. My interest in Nvidia Shield really dropped though if support don't even have access to the information on their own web.
And its a 180USD device!
