Hmmmm, might have to pick one up. If I can sell my current shield. Though it seems like everything they added to the new one is just software? I know there's a slightly faster CPU but really any of the rest could be added to the existing shield? I know current shield is on 8.0 and new one is 8.1 so maybe....
I never have gotten the shield remote to control TV on/off or receiver volume whereas my ATV4k remote controlled it all out of the box. Perhaps I should explore this more and see if I can resolve it.
