Dolby specifically mentioned the Shield as a device that would be able to get DV support, if NVIDIA chose to do so. Thanks.
Nvidia seems to go out of their way to avoid answering anything on this topic. I have asked Nvidia Support over on there forums a handful of things over the past two years that they answer pretty quickly; My questions about DV support have been ignored completely.
Before the 4k Apple TV I would have said there was likely no chance that Nvidia would add Dolby Vision due to the cost of the license; They wouldn't even pony up for Dolby Digital/Plus/TrueHD/Atmos licenses (it supports pass-through of all formats however). But with Apple getting in the game Nvidia has some major competition for the space (in my opinion) so they may add it to compete directly but who knows. They won't comment at all.
