The long-running Nvidia Shield TV is getting another Android TV update, this time with Shield Experience 9.1.1 which brings new power management and a large number of bug fixes.
Now rolling out to all Shield TV devices, Shield Experience 9.1.1 is a minor update, but it brings a lot of fixes to popular Android TV streamers. In terms of new features, Nvidia details a new power management option that allows the Shield to wake up when the TV input is switched to the input on the Shield, which could be useful for those with wonky CEC or no feature at all.
A new Dolby Vision control has also been added to the developer options, and Nvidia says it’s redesigned and cleaned up that menu as well.
There’s also an update to the Shield TV app on Android phones that fixes an issue that prevented the app from launching properly on Samsung Galaxy devices.
The full changes for Shield Experience 9.1.1 are as follows:
- Add a power management option to wake the SHIELD when the TV input changes to the SHIELD
- Add developer option to force Dolby Vision Low Latency if available
- Enables Dolby Vision not seen properly on other Philips TVs
- Resolves large smb file transfer encryption issues by disabling anonymous access with virus scanners
- Add developer option to upgrade HDMI-CEC volume control for AVR/Soundbars (“Clear favorite playback address”)
- General cleanup and customization of developer options
