I thought I'd quote myself in this thread rather than start a new thread about our small remote once again suddenly going through batteries on an almost weekly basis. Any other Shield owners noticing that they're small remote is going through batteries faster than usual?
Yeah it was a more common issue in the past but I asked because I thought they fixed it. I had it a few times, changed the battery and then realized it was fine so I justIf you mean the latest Nvidia software and remote and controller software, yes. I checked for software updates for those first thing. Thanks.
Maybe what I've made bold in your post is exactly what Nvidia wanted increasingly frustrated owners to do.Yeah it was a more common issue in the past but I asked because I thought they fixed it. I had it a few times, changed the battery and then realized it was fine so I just
closed the notification and ignored it. I ended up moving to the 2019 Shield so its no longer an issue for me.
I know its not the solution you're looking for, but what about getting a universal remote control? You wont have to deal with the low battery problems anymore. Logitech make some inexpensive ones, you have just one remote that controls all (8 or more) your entertainment devices. You can use it to control the shield with a USB IRMaybe what I've made bold in your post is exactly what Nvidia wanted increasingly frustrated owners to do.
I'm reminded of the recent "engineered" slowdown in response time of Apple phones. Owners got a bit frustrated with it and upgraded to a new phone. But I'm going to hang in there and see what kind of response I get from Nvidia, if any. Our controller still works great, so using that all the time may ultimately be my only option.
The interesting thing is that this low-battery thing appeared out of nowhere, just a couple of weeks ago. The batteries that were in the remote a that time had been in there for literally several months. Then, bang, the low battery warnings start appearing.
FWIW, I tested the voltages on the last set of batteries I removed from the remote a few days ago, as well as the ones that are in the remote today, plus several brand new batteries still in the pack, and I found just below 3.2V on all of them -- in other words, normal battery voltages for a CR2032 rated at 3V. So this is not a low-voltage issue. It's yet another FALSE low-battery warning issue that is caused by some screwed up communication between the remote and the base station.
Thanks, but if tthe small remote does not work out, I'll just use the controller -- to which the Shield responds instantaneously. If I were going to buy anything, I'd buy a brand new Nvidia small remote.I know its not the solution you're looking for, but what about getting a universal remote control?

Just a suggestion.
I hit the "stop" button on the stop watch last night at around 10 PM. Therefore, the "critically low battery" warning appeared approximately 84 hours after the new set of batteries were installed.Last night the small remote suddenly became un-paired with the Shield box, so we used the controller for the rest of the evening. This morning, July 10, 2020, I changed the small remote batteries, woke up the Shield box using the controller and, again, the small remote was not detected. I chose "pair an accessory" and, after pressing and holding the center button on the remote for around 15 seconds, the small remote did pair with the Shield box. Right now, 09:28, July 10, 2020, 10 minutes after pairing, the batteries show "full". The stop watch "start" button has been pushed. How long before the low-battery warning pops up?
anyone know a way to fix "match content"?
My AppleTV4K works amazing and switches from HDR to Dolby Vision? but the Nvidia Shield never does it trying to figure out a way to make it work. I have Match Content on but it says BETA
