I control my Shield TV (2015) with my Harmony One. Everything works, including the volume slider which I have mapped to the solo up/down arrow on my One.

Just picked up from Fry's for $13.65 after tax. Anyone know if the UV code redeems in UHD? I won't be home until later to test.

Nice setup, but the Whodini album makes it even better! 5 Minutes of Funk must sound awesome on it.

I run Kodi on the Firestick and SPMC on the Shield TV. The Firestick is good, especially for the price. There is more hassle to getting Kodi up and running on it, but once it's there it works well.

I think it's the fact that SPMC is done by Koying, who is the guy responsible for developing Kodi's Android version in the first place. It seems he and the Kodi group had a falling out and he has...

SPMC does a great job of playing back mkv's w/ HD audio and frame rate switching. I don't think I have ever seen the Netflix app switch to 24hz though.

Vudu is not yet available on Android TV and thus is not on the Shield TV. It can be sideloaded, but you would need a mouse to select everything.
