How to take a screenshot on your nvidia shield tv

The Nvidia Shield TV has been flying the Android TV flag for many years at this point, and through regular updates, it has remained one of the very best gadgets running Google’s TV operating system. If you have one of these set-top boxes under your TV, here are some tips and tricks to make the most out of it.

1. Attach a keyboard and mouse

Attaching a keyboard and mouse to your Nvidia Shield TV device can make entering passwords and search terms much easier, as well as improve the gaming experience in many titles. If you’ve got a model with USB ports, you should be able to plug peripherals straight into the back of the device and start using them after a few seconds.

Every Shield TV model supports wireless Bluetooth connections. You can add a keyboard and mouse this way via Remotes & Accessories and Add accessory in the Settings menu. Anecdotally, some input devices seem to work better than others, so it’s worth researching keyboards and mice that are known to function properly with the Shield TV boxes.

2. Find your remote

If you have one of the newest models of the Nvidia Shield TV or the Nvidia Shield TV Pro with the triangular-shaped remote, you can get it to make an audible beep if you’ve lost it. This is easiest on the cylindrical Nvidia Shield TV, where you can just press the dedicated remote finder button above the HDMI port to get the remote to beep.

The latest and greatest iPad
Upgrade your tablet to what Gizmodo called "basically a perfect piece of hardware."

On the Nvidia Shield TV Pro, you need to open Settings and choose Remotes & Accessories, SHIELD accessories, SHIELD remote 1, and Find this remote. As you’ve lost the remote, obviously, you’ll need to get to this menu by plugging in a mouse (see above) or by using the Android TV Remote Control app for Android or iOS to control the Shield TV.

3. Remap the remote

If you don’t like the default functions of the remote control that came with your Nvidia Shield TV for whatever reason, then you can change them around. The Menu button (the three horizontal lines) can be reprogrammed out of the box: From Settings, choose Remotes & Accessories, then Customize Menu button to pick a new function.

For the rest of the buttons, including that one with the Netflix label on it, you need to install the ever-useful Button Mapper on your device. We’ve used this on many different pieces of Android hardware, and it’ll let you remap any button on the remote. Some buttons can be edited for free, while others require a paid upgrade before they become accessible.

4. Rearrange the home screen

You don’t have to settle for the default look of the Android TV home screen on the Nvidia Shield TV. Make sure your favorite apps and content are front and center and you can spend less time scrolling and more time watching (or playing). For example, select an app from the main list on the left, then navigate left to find the Move and Remove options.

Long pressing the select button in the navigation wheel is helpful here. On the main favorite app list row at the top, for instance, it lets you move the position of an app shortcut or hide it from this row completely. Meanwhile, you can scroll all the way to the bottom of the home screen and select Customize channels to choose which apps you see.

5. Quickly switch between apps

If you’re serious about your binge watching then you might often want to switch between different streaming apps. The Nvidia Shield TV offers a quick and intuitive way to do this, though it’s not immediately obvious—if you double-tap on the home button (with the white circle icon in it), you’ll bring up a quick switch screen showing recently opened apps.

6. Take screenshots of games and more

Should you have to snap something on the screen of your Nvidia Shield TV, you can do this with a long press of the home (white circle) button. First of all though, you need to enable this overlay: From the main Settings screen, pick Device Preferences, System, and turn the Nvidia Share option to On.

7. Tweak the external brightness and internal performance

If the green LED swish on the front of the Nvidia Shield TV Pro is a little bit too bright for your tastes, you can easily dim it. Open up Settings then choose Device Preferences, System and LED brightness, and you can pick from High, Medium, Low, or Off. If the box is causing an unnaturally bright glow in your room, then this is how you can fix it.

On the same System menu in Device Preferences, you can adjust the Processor mode setting to either Max performance or Optimized. You might want to turn this down if you want to save on the energy your box is using up—you only really need the high performance mode if you’re running games locally from the Nvidia Shield TV device itself.

8. Enable GameStream

The Nvidia Shield TV is an excellent gaming machine. Not only can it tap into the GeForce Now cloud streaming service, but it can also stream games from a compatible Windows PC somewhere else on the local network using a feature called GameStream. Open up the Nvidia Games app on your Shield TV, and GameStream PCs is on the Settings row.

You need to do some prep work on your Windows computer as well, assuming it meets the standards for compatibility (most GTX and RTX GPUs are going to work ). You need to have the latest GeForce drivers installed, and the GeForce Experience utility running. In that utility’s settings, make sure GameStream is enabled on the Shield page.

The NVIDIA SHIELD TV is the most robust Android TV solution on the market. It is not only a powerful device, but also one that’s rich on features and sometimes knowing how to access even the most basic features might require a pointer in the right direction.

Screenshots are a good example. We first published a version of this how-to back in 2015 and while the method is largely the same, the SHIELD has undergone some changes since then that even the most veteran users of the SHIELD might not be fully aware of.

So here’s an updated version of how to take a screenshot on the NVIDIA SHIELD and in particular on Oreo.

The NVIDIA SHIELD comes loaded with a feature called NVIDIA Share which acts as the main capturing tool. Using NVIDIA Share you can not only take screenshots, but also record the screen and share that recording.

Previously, this feature was easily accessible by default. However in May of 2018 NVIDIA rolled out its Android 8.0 (Oreo) upgrade and this removed the ability to use NVIDIA Share in the same way.

This was primarily a result of the remapping of the Share button with Oreo and the general idea was to make it easier for users to access ‘all apps.’ Android TV’s Oreo update in general comes with a focus on channels instead of apps and a byproduct of this was the apps that are not as frequently used were sidelined and buried within the system.

As a means to address this issue device-makers have looked at different ways to offer quick access to the app drawer so users can still access those lesser used apps in a speedy fashion. The remapping of the Share button was NVIDIA’s solution and came at the expense of the screenshot feature. At least, at first.

Following feedback from the community, NVIDIA rolled out another update in September 2018 that that re-added the Share function to the SHIELD. However, this didn’t arrive exactly the same as before with the main difference now being NVIDIA Share is no longer enabled by default. Therefore the first thing you need to do is make sure the NVIDIA Share feature is activated.

To enable the Share feature you will need to head into the settings menu and scroll down and click on “System.”

Now scroll down until you land on the “NVIDIA Share” option.

By default the SHIELD Android TV is set to “Off” so you will just need to select the “On (Hold Home button to access)” option to enable the feature.

Keep in mind that this option resets the button to the way it worked prior to Oreo. This means you will no longer have access to the ‘all apps’ shortcut unless you disable the feature once again.

After enabling NVIDIA Share the process of taking a screenshot is the same as it was before. Simply hold down the ‘circle’ button and an overlay will pop up.

Navigate across and click on the “Screenshot” option. You will then be presented with the option to “save to Gallery.” You will need to click on this option to complete the action and save the image.

Once the image has been captured you can access it by heading to the app drawer and then to the “Gallery” app called “Photos & Videos.”

At which point you will be able to view all the screenshots you have saved.

It’s worth noting that the stock Gallery app does not allow you to do much other than viewing the saved screenshots.

Before Oreo, the NVIDIA Share option itself used to offer an option to “Save and share” but that’s no longer available with the Oreo version. Therefore, if you want to actually share the image outside of the SHIELD’s interface you’ll most likely want to make use of a decent third-party file manager app – preferably one with Android TV support otherwise you’ll have to sideload a less-optimized version of the app.

Alternatively, screenshots are also available to export manually when connecting a PC or laptop to the SHIELD and copying the files over.

It’s not apparent at first, but you can take screenshots of your Android TV interface just like you can on your smartphone. If you have an Nvidia Shield TV, it’s very simple to do. Here’s how.

The option to take a screenshot on Nvidia Shield TV devices is part of the “Nvidia Share” toolbar, which is primarily for sharing gaming content. It can be used to stream your screen to Twitch, for example. We’ll be using it to simply take a screenshot.

First, we need to turn on the “Nvidia Share” toolbar because it’s disabled by default. Open the “Settings” menu by clicking the “Gear” icon in the top-right corner.

If you missed our full review of the NVIDIA SHIELD then you can read over it by clicking here. There is no doubting that the SHIELD is a more advanced unit than the Nexus Player. The specs alone make this clear. However, it is not only the hardware that seems to operate much better on the SHIELD. Equally so, the software has been nicely tweaked by NVIDIA to provide a more richer end user experience. This means there are a number of features which you won’t find on the Nexus Player as standard. One of those, is the ability to take a screenshot.

Now, screenshots are a staple of the android world and it stands to reason that Android TV devices should be able to offer the feature as well. And for clarity, you can take a screenshot with the Nexus Player, but this is not a feature which is available out of the box and instead requires a bit of tweaking from the user. In contrast, the SHIELD has this feature baked into the system and ready to go with very little knowledge needed by the user. In fact, taking a screenshot couldn’t be easier on the SHIELD.

To take a screenshot, grab the SHIELD Controller and simply press the big circular button which is dead center on the control. To most this is the Home button. However, if you hold down the button for a couple of seconds (instead of pressing and immediately releasing), you will notice a small menu pop up on the screen. This is in fact the Twitch menu and is designed to offer users the ability to capture their gaming antics and have them ready to share on Twitch. Regardless of whether you are a Twitch user, the added benefit of this menu is that you can simply take a screenshot. The last option on the on-screen menu is the take a screenshot feature.

How to take a screenshot on your nvidia shield tvOnce navigated to and pressed, you will then see two options pop up. One of them is store to photos and the other is ‘Save and Share’.

How to take a screenshot on your nvidia shield tvBoth are quite self explanatory. The Save to Photos will save the image on your device locally while the second option will immediately offer you the option to share the image through your normal sharing channels. If you have already sideloaded Google Drive on to your SHIELD device, then Drive will also be an option which shows up when you click this link. If you chose the local option, the image will simply be saved as is. If you choose the second option, you can choose your method of sharing and then whether you want to save the image.

How to take a screenshot on your nvidia shield tv

And that’s about it.

How to take a screenshot on your nvidia shield tv

You might not realize it, but your Android TV (or set-top box) can take screenshots just like a phone or tablet. Unfortunately, it’s not as simple, but we’ll show you a method that works.

Some Android TV devices, like the Nvidia Shield TV, include a built-in tool for taking screenshots. However, most don’t, so you’ll have to get a little more creative to take a screenshot on those devices.

This method requires a paid third-party app called “Button Mapper,” which allows you to remap the actions of any button on your remote.

To get it, open the Google Play Store on your Android TV, type “Button Mapper” in the search box, and then select the app when it appears in the results.

How to take a screenshot on your nvidia shield tv

Select “Install” on the app page to download it to your device. When it’s finished, select “Open” to launch the app.

How to take a screenshot on your nvidia shield tv

When you launch it for the first time, the app will ask you to start the Accessibility Service. This is what allows the app to detect the buttons you’re pressing; click “OK.”

How to take a screenshot on your nvidia shield tv

In the Settings menu that opens, scroll down, and then select “Device Preferences.”

How to take a screenshot on your nvidia shield tv

Scroll down and select “Accessibility.”

How to take a screenshot on your nvidia shield tv

Find and select “Button Mapper” in the list.

How to take a screenshot on your nvidia shield tv

Toggle-On the “Enable” switch for Button Mapper, and then tap “OK” on the confirmation page.

How to take a screenshot on your nvidia shield tv

Back in the Button Mapper app, you’ll see a Lock icon next to some of the buttons. These require the $4.99 in-app purchase to configure. Choose the button you want to use to take a screenshot; we selected “Menu Button.”

How to take a screenshot on your nvidia shield tv

Next, toggle-On the “Customize” option at the top.

How to take a screenshot on your nvidia shield tv

You can then decide which button action you want to use to take a screenshot. We selected “Double Tap.”

How to take a screenshot on your nvidia shield tv

Make sure “Actions” is selected at the top of the pop-up, and then scroll down and select “Screenshot.”

How to take a screenshot on your nvidia shield tv

Now, whenever you use the button action you specified (double-tap, in our case), it’ll take a screenshot.

How to take a screenshot on your nvidia shield tv

You can find your screenshots in the Photos & Videos app that’s preinstalled on your Android TV or device.

To move your screenshots from the TV to another device, the best method is to upload them to cloud storage. You can do this with a file manager app, like File Commander. Then, you’ll be able to access your screenshots anywhere.

How to take a screenshot on your nvidia shield tv

We’re all accustomed to taking screenshots on our Android phones, Apple devices, and computers, but you can also take screenshots on your smart TV or streaming device. It’s just more complicated, and it depends what you’re taking a screenshot of in the first place.

These devices can prevent you from screenshotting movies and TV shows you’re watching, thanks to high-bandwidth digital content protection (HDCP). However, it never hurts to try. And there may even come a time where you need to upload a screenshot of your device’s interface — if you’re troubleshooting, for example.

On the plus side, you can take screenshots without the use of paid apps across Android TV, Apple TV, the Nvidia Shield, and Amazon’s Fire TV. Here’s how:

Taking screenshots on the Apple TV

  1. Connect your Apple TV and your Mac to the same network.
  2. Open QuickTime Player on your Mac.
  3. Go to “File” > “New Movie Recording.”
  4. In the live-feed window that appears, select your Apple TV from the drop down menu.
  5. A four digit code should appear on your Apple TV screen. Input that code into QuickTime on your Mac to connect the two devices.
  6. Once you can see your Apple TV interface in QuickTime, press Shift + Cmd + 5 to bring up the screenshot toolbar. Click “Capture” to take a screenshot.

Taking screenshots on an Android TV

If your Android TV device has a dedicated remote controller app available, check around for a screenshot button. This is the easiest way to take a screenshot on your TV. However, not all Android TVs offer such apps, and only a few include a screenshot function. In those cases, you’ll need a third-party Android TV remote app that lets you take screenshots, such as CetusPlay.

  1. Install CetusPlay from the Google Play Store on your Android TV and your Android phone.
  2. Make sure both devices are connected to the same wifi network.
  3. Next, enable USB debugging on your Android TV. Go to Settings > About and select “Build” seven times in a row until you see the message “Developer mode has been activated.”
  4. Go back to Settings. Go to Developer options > USB Debugging, and enable “USB Debugging.”
  5. Open CetusPlay on your Android device.
  6. Tap the three-bar icon, then select “Screen Capture” to take a screenshot of your Android TV.

Taking screenshots on the Nvidia Shield

The Nvidia shield is the only device on this list that actually lets you take a screenshot natively — no third-party apps or external hardware necessary.

  1. Open the Nvidia shield’s Settings app.
  2. Go to “Device Preferences” > “System” > “Nvidia Share.”
  3. Turn Nvidia share on. You can now take screenshots.
  4. Hold the Home button on the Nvidia Shield remote or the remote controller app to open the share menu.
  5. Select “Screenshot.”
  6. Select “Save to Photos.”

Taking screenshots on Amazon’s Fire TV

Amazon Fire TV screenshots must be taken with the help of an externally-connected PC with ADB platform tools installed.

Nvidia Shield TV is future-proof compared to other devices. You’ll never get the fast zapping time compared to other boxes. Thanks to the power in it, Nvidia Shield TV is absolutely a beast. It has 256 GPU cores which makes it a perfect device for IPTV and much much more.
