Recently, NVIDIA’s SHIELD became the first Android TV device to get access to OK Google and the Google Assistant. The thing is, you really need the TV to be on in order to really make the most of it—but a new setting will still let you use it even when the screen is off.

Before we get into how to do that, though, let’s first talk about what to expect when using this feature. First, the functionality is going to be pretty limited when your TV is off. If you’re using it to, say, turn your lights on or off (or comparable smarthome features that don’t require audible or visual feedback), that should work perfectly.

But since neither the SHIELD nor the controller have speakers on them, it won’t be able to answer questions—like “what’s the weather going to be tomorrow.” The exception here is if you have a soundbar or separate receiver and speakers attached to your TV. Simply leave the soundbar on to hear the Assistant. Of course, that may not work with every TV and every soundbar, either—you’re just going to have to experiment with it.

NVIDIA is likely working on some alternative solutions to these quandaries, but until they figure something out, this is what you get. Despite its shortcomings, however, it’s definitely still worth using—especially if you don’t have something like Google Home to do the job.

NOTE: Always listening is only supported on the 2017 remodeled controller, which is fully compatible with the first generation SHIELD set-top box.

Alright! With that out of the way, jump into SHIELD’s settings menu: scroll all the way to the bottom row and click on the gear icon.

From there, head down to the System entry and give it a click.

There are a few options here, but you’re looking for the last one: Enable “OK Google” when TV is off.” You’ll also note this in in beta, so don’t be surprised if its slightly buggy at times.

When you click into this menu, a caveat will be displayed letting you know that you’ll need to at least leave your soundbar on in order to hear the Assistant, which we already mentioned above.

Go ahead and toggle that bad boy on, and away you go. Good stuff.

From that point forward, you should be able to better integrate SHIELD into your smart home setup, treating it as an additional Google Home product—especially if integrated with Samsung’s SmartThings link. Very cool stuff.

Google Home devices can now control your SHIELD TV from anywhere in your home as long as they’re on the same network. Giving your modern, connected living room all the convenience and efficiency you can imagine with the help of the Google Assistant.

We continuously enhance your experience with new features that benefit YOU, our loyal SHIELD owners. With the Google Assistant built-in, you can quickly access entertainment, get answers and control devices around your home.

Today we’re announcing a deeper integration between your Google Home devices and SHIELD TV.

Hands-Free Voice Control with Your Google Home

“Ok Google, watch Ozark on SHIELD.”

Using just your voice, the deeper integration brings new functionality and control between your Google Home and SHIELD. You can now tell Google Home to jump into your favorite Netflix, HBO NOW, CBS, and Starz shows and movies immediately.

Not sure what you want to watch just yet? Fire up any app you have on SHIELD using just your voice, saying, “Ok Google, open Hulu on SHIELD.”

Playback and volume controls are improved as well. Play and pause from all apps. Or tell Google to change the volume, “Ok Google, set volume to 80% on SHIELD.”

And for when you’re done, “Ok Google, turn off SHIELD.

Just Say “Ok Google” To Get Started

Google Home already worked with SHIELD, providing basic controls. So if you’re bragging about your latest vacation and want to show off those sweet photos on the big screen, or if you’re on the couch under a warm blanket and want to dim the lights, you can using just your voice, with help from your Google Assistant.

It’s also great for those times you’re just being flat out lazy. You’re watching that famous line in Taken where Liam Neeson is talking about a very particular set of skills, but oh no! The remote is on the other end of the sofa and you can’t reach it. No worries, just say, “Ok Google, increase the volume on SHIELD,” and you’re set.

And when your TV is off, you can still get the same useful Google Home Mini functionality. Ask for directions and have them sent to your phone. Take control of your smart home. Get a quick weather update, a preview of your schedule, reminders, news and more, even calls!

Expand your connected living room But Wait, There’s More

Here are a few hands-free commands* to get you started. Simply say, “Ok Google” or “Hey Google,” and ask away.

Basic Commands

“Turn on SHIELD.”
“Turn off SHIELD.”
“Open [name of app] on SHIELD.”

Volume Control

“Set volume to 50% on SHIELD.”
“Increase/decrease volume on SHIELD.”
“Mute/unmute volume on SHIELD.”

Playback Features

“Play [name of Netflix, HBO NOW, CBS, Viki, or Starz show] on SHIELD.”
“Play [name of song] on [name of app] on SHIELD.”
“Watch [name of channel] on YouTube TV on SHIELD.”
“Play YouTube on SHIELD.”
“Pause on SHIELD.”
“Play on SHIELD.”

Photos and Smart Home

“Show me my pictures from Egypt on SHIELD.”
“Show me my pictures from last weekend on SHIELD.”
“Dim the lights.”
“Set the temperature to 72 degrees.”

These new features are rolling out to SHIELD users this month. If you are eager to try out the features, a restart of your SHIELD TV will deliver the new features within a day.

We hope you enjoy your even more advanced living room.

Don’t forget to join the conversation on Facebook and Twitter for the latest and greatest!

Nedávno se SHIELD NVIDIA stala prvním zařízením Android TV pro přístup k OK Google a Google Asistent. Věc je, že opravdu potřebujete, aby byl televizor napájen, aby byl skutečně co nejvíce vyčerpán – ale nové nastavení vám umožní používat i když je obrazovka vypnutá.

SOUVISEJÍCÍ: Jak se dostat Nejvíce z vašeho televizoru Android

Než se dostaneme do toho, jak to udělat, nejprve řekněte, co očekávat při používání této funkce. Za prvé, funkčnost bude docela omezená, když je televizor vypnutý. Používáte-li to, řekněme, zapněte nebo vypněte světla (nebo srovnatelné funkce, které nevyžadují zvukovou nebo vizuální zpětnou vazbu), které by měly fungovat perfektně.

Jelikož však SHIELD ani regulátor nemají reproduktory na ně nebude schopen odpovědět na otázky – jako “co bude počasí zítra.” Výjimku zde je, pokud máte k televizoru připojen zvukový panel nebo samostatný přijímač a reproduktory. Jednoduše nechte zvukovou lištu a poslouchejte pomocníka. Samozřejmě to nemusí fungovat ani s každým televizorem a s každým zvukovým pruhem – budete s tím muset experimentovat.

NVIDIA pravděpodobně pracuje na alternativních řešeních těchto problémů, ale dokud něco neuvidí, to je to, co dostanete. I přes své nedostatky je to rozhodně stále hodně užitečné – zejména pokud nemáte něco jako domovská stránka Google, která by vám to dělala.

POZNÁMKA: Vždy se posloucháte pouze na 2017 remodeled controller, který je plně kompatibilní s první generace set-top boxu SHIELD

V pořádku! S touto cestou přeskočte do menu nastavení SHIELD: přejděte úplně do spodního řádku a klikněte na ikonu ozubeného kola

Odtud jděte dolů k položce System a klikněte na něj.

Tam je zde několik možností, ale hledáte ten poslední: Povolte “OK Google”, když je televizor vypnutý. “Také si to všimněte v beta verzii, takže se nenechte překvapit, jestli je to někdy lehce chybné.

Když kliknete na toto menu, zobrazí se nápis, který vám sdělí, že budete muset alespoň nechat zvukovou lištu, abyste mohli poslouchat pomocníka, který jsme již uvedli výše.

Pokračujte a přepněte ten špatný chlapec, a pryč. Dobré věci.

Od tohoto bodu vpřed byste měli být schopni lépe integrovat SHIELD do vašeho inteligentního domácího zařízení a zacházet s ním jako s dalším domácím produktem Google – zvláště pokud je integrován s linkou Samsung SmartThings. Velmi cool věc.

Kancelář 2007 viděla přidání funkce pásky, kterou někteří uživatelé našli matoucí. Můžete je však použít ve svém vlastním prospěchu přidáním vlastních vlastních karet obsahujících často používané příkazy. To umožňuje rychlejší a snadnější vytváření dokumentů. V našem příkladu používáme aplikaci Word, ale v ostatních aplikacích sady Office můžete také vytvářet vlastní karty.

Pokud máte zvláštní ohled na to, jak systém Windows zobrazuje obsah vašich složek, můžete výrazně snížit čas přizpůsobení, Pět vestavěných šablon složek aplikace Explorer. Možná jste si všimli, že když otevřete složky s určitými typy souborů jako jsou obrázky nebo hudba, systém Windows zobrazí obsah těchto složek trochu jinak než jiné složky.

Neseniai “NVIDIA SHIELD” tapo pirmuoju “Android TV” įrenginiu, kad galėtumėte pasiekti “OK” “Google” ir “Google” Asistentas. Tai yra tai, kad tikrai reikia, kad televizorius būtų įjungtas, kad galėtum tai išnaudoti, bet naujas nustatymas vis tiek leis jums jį naudoti netgi tada, kai ekranas išjungtas.

SUSIJĘS: Kaip gauti didžiausia jūsų “Android TV” versija

Prieš pradedant naudotis šia funkcija, pirmiausia kalbėkime apie tai, ko tikėtis naudojant šią funkciją. Pirma, funkcijos bus gana ribotos, kai jūsų televizorius išjungtas. Jei naudojate tai, sakykime, įjunkite arba išjunkite žibintus (ar panašius “smarthome” ypatybes, kurioms nereikia garsinių ar regimų atsiliepimų), kurie turėtų veikti puikiai.

Bet kadangi nei SHIELD, nei valdiklis neturi garsiakalbių ant jų jie negalės atsakyti į tokius klausimus kaip “koks oras bus rytoj”. Išimtis čia yra, jei turite televizoriaus garso sklendę ar atskirą imtuvą ir garsiakalbius. Tiesiog palikite garso skleidžiamąją skambutį, kad galėtumėte klausytis asistento. Žinoma, tai gali neveikti su kiekviena televizija ir kiekviena garso juosta – jūs tik turėsite eksperimentuoti su ja.

“NVIDIA”, greičiausiai, dirbs su šiais sunkumais alternatyviais sprendimais, tačiau kol jie nieko neįrodys, tai tu gausi. Nepaisant to, kad yra trūkumų, vis dėlto tai tikrai verta naudoti, ypač jei jūs neturite kažko panašaus į “Google” namų, kad atliktumėte darbą.

PASTABA: visada klausytis palaikoma tik 2017 m. Pertvarkytu valdikliu, kuris visiškai suderinamas su pirmosios kartos “SHIELD” rinkinys.

Gerai! Jei norite tai padaryti, peršokite į SHIELD nustatymų meniu: pereikite iki apačios eilutės ir spustelėkite krumpliaračio piktogramą.

Iš ten nueikite į sistemos įrašą ir paspauskite jį.

Ten čia yra keletas variantų, bet jūs ieškote paskutinio: įjunkite “OK Google”, kai televizorius išjungtas. “Taip pat atkreipsite dėmesį į tai beta versijoje, todėl nesistebėkite, ar kartais jis šiek tiek klaidingas.

Paspaudus į šį meniu, bus rodomas įspėjimas, kuriame bus nurodyta, kad turėsite bent jau palikti savo garso juostą, kad galėtumėte išgirsti padėjėją, apie kurį jau minėjome aukščiau.

Tęskite ir perjunkite tas blogas berniukas ir tavo protas. Geros naujienos.

Nuo to momento pirmyn turėtumėte geriau integruoti SHIELD į savo išmanųjį namų nustatymą, laikydami jį papildomu “Google” namų produktu, ypač jei jis integruotas su “Samsung” “SmartThings” nuoroda. Labai cool stuff.

“Amazon” gali pirkti produktus “Echo” savo balsu, bet tai nereiškia, kad “Google” yra turinys, leidžiantis sėdėti šioje lenktynėse. Pagal “Google Express” priklausomai nuo to, kur jūs gyvenate, galite įsigyti daiktų “Google” namuose. Štai kaip jį nustatyti. Jei nesate susipažinę su “Google Express”, tai veikia kaip “Amazon Prime”.

“Instagram” yra gana gerai suplanuota programa. Dauguma funkcijų yra, kai tikitės jų, nors kai kurie iš jų yra šiek tiek paslėpti. Viena iš nepaprastai sunku rasti yra tai, kaip į “iOS” pridėti “Instagram” parašų eilučių ar pastraipų eilutes. Laimei, “Android” gerbėjams, viskas yra įprasta: tiesiog paspauskite Grįžti.

เมื่อเร็ว ๆ นี้ SHIELD ของ NVIDIA กลายเป็นอุปกรณ์ Android TV เครื่องแรกที่เข้าถึง OK Google และ Google Assistant คุณต้องเปิดทีวีเพื่อให้ได้ประโยชน์สูงสุด – แต่การตั้งค่าใหม่จะยังคงให้คุณใช้งานได้แม้ในขณะที่ปิดหน้าจอ.

แต่ก่อนที่เราจะทำเช่นนั้นก่อนอื่นเรามาพูดถึงสิ่งที่คาดหวังเมื่อใช้คุณลักษณะนี้ ก่อนอื่นฟังก์ชั่นจะค่อนข้าง จำกัด เมื่อปิดทีวี หากคุณกำลังใช้เพื่อพูดเปิดหรือปิดไฟของคุณ (หรือคุณสมบัติสมาร์ทโฮมที่เทียบเคียงกันได้ซึ่งไม่ต้องการความคิดเห็นด้านเสียงหรือภาพ) ควรทำงานได้อย่างสมบูรณ์แบบ.

แต่เนื่องจากทั้ง SHIELD และตัวควบคุมไม่มีลำโพงอยู่พวกมันจะไม่สามารถตอบคำถามแบบ “อากาศจะเป็นอย่างไรในวันพรุ่งนี้” ข้อยกเว้นที่นี่คือถ้าคุณมีแถบเสียงหรือตัวรับสัญญาณและลำโพงแยกต่างหาก ทีวีของคุณ เพียงเปิดซาวนด์บาร์เพื่อฟังผู้ช่วย แน่นอนว่าอาจไม่สามารถใช้ได้กับทีวีทุกเครื่องและ Soundbar ทุกอันคุณแค่ต้องทดลองใช้มัน.

NVIDIA น่าจะทำงานกับโซลูชันทางเลือกบางอย่างสำหรับความไม่แน่ใจเหล่านี้ แต่จนกว่าพวกเขาจะค้นพบบางสิ่งนี่คือสิ่งที่คุณได้รับ แม้จะมีข้อบกพร่อง แต่ก็คุ้มค่าที่จะใช้โดยเฉพาะอย่างยิ่งหากคุณไม่มีหน้าแรกของ Google ในการทำงาน.

หมายเหตุ: การฟังได้รับการสนับสนุนเฉพาะในตัวควบคุม remodeled 2017 ซึ่งเข้ากันได้กับกล่องรับสัญญาณรุ่น SHIELD รุ่นแรกเสมอ.

เอาล่ะ! ข้ามไปที่เมนูการตั้งค่าของ SHIELD: เลื่อนไปจนสุดแถวด้านล่างแล้วคลิกที่ไอคอนรูปเฟือง.

มีตัวเลือกไม่กี่ตัวที่นี่ แต่คุณกำลังมองหาตัวล่าสุด: เปิดใช้งาน“ OK Google” เมื่อปิดทีวี” คุณจะทราบสิ่งนี้ในรุ่นเบต้าดังนั้นไม่ต้องแปลกใจถ้ามันมีรถเล็กน้อยในบางครั้ง.

จากจุดนั้นเป็นต้นไปคุณจะสามารถรวม SHIELD กับการตั้งค่าสมาร์ทโฮมของคุณได้ดียิ่งขึ้นซึ่งถือว่าเป็นผลิตภัณฑ์เพิ่มเติมของ Google Home โดยเฉพาะอย่างยิ่งหากรวมเข้ากับลิงก์ SmartThings ของ Samsung สิ่งที่เจ๋งมาก.

Récemment, le SHIELD de NVIDIA est devenu le premier appareil Android TV à avoir accès à OK Google et Google Assistant. Le truc, c’est que le téléviseur doit être allumé pour en tirer le meilleur parti, mais un nouveau réglage vous permettra de l’utiliser même si l’écran est éteint.

CONNEXION: Comment obtenir Le meilleur de votre Android TV

Avant d’entrer dans la manière de faire, nous allons d’abord vous parler de ce à quoi vous attendre lorsque vous utilisez cette fonction. Tout d’abord, la fonctionnalité va être limitée lorsque votre téléviseur est éteint. Si vous l’utilisez pour, par exemple, allumer ou éteindre vos lumières (ou des fonctions comparables qui ne nécessitent pas de retour audible ou visuel), cela devrait fonctionner parfaitement.

Mais ni le SHIELD ni le contrôleur n’ont de haut-parleurs sur eux, il ne sera pas capable de répondre à des questions, comme “quel temps il fera demain.” L’exception ici est si vous avez une barre de son ou un récepteur distinct et des haut-parleurs attachés à votre téléviseur. Laissez simplement la barre de son pour entendre l’assistant. Bien sûr, cela peut ne pas fonctionner avec tous les téléviseurs et toutes les barres de son, vous devrez simplement expérimenter.

NVIDIA travaille probablement sur des solutions alternatives à ces problèmes, mais jusqu’à ce qu’ils comprennent quelque chose, C’est ce que vous obtenez. En dépit de ses défauts, cependant, cela vaut la peine de l’utiliser, surtout si vous n’avez pas Google Home pour faire le travail.

REMARQUE: L’écoute est uniquement prise en charge sur le contrôleur 2017, entièrement compatible avec Décodeur SHIELD de première génération.

Très bien! Avec cela à l’écart, sautez dans le menu des paramètres du SHIELD: faites défiler tout le chemin jusqu’à la rangée du bas et cliquez sur l’icône d’engrenage

De là, dirigez-vous vers l’entrée Système et cliquez.

Voici quelques options ici, mais vous cherchez le dernier: Activer “OK ​​Google” lorsque la télévision est éteinte. “Vous noterez également cela en version bêta, alors ne soyez pas surpris si c’est un peu buggé à la fois.

Lorsque vous cliquez dans ce menu, un avertissement s’affiche pour vous indiquer que vous devez au moins laisser votre barre de son afin d’entendre l’assistant, ce que nous avons déjà mentionné plus haut.

Allez-y et basculez ce mauvais garçon, et vous partez. De bonnes choses.

À partir de là, vous devriez être en mesure de mieux intégrer SHIELD dans votre configuration de maison intelligente, en le traitant comme un produit Google Home supplémentaire, surtout s’il est intégré au lien SmartThings de Samsung. Trucs très cool.

Vous pouvez toujours rechercher des comptes utilisateur sur un système Windows à l’aide de l’interface des paramètres, mais si vous souhaitez enregistrer un fichier sympathique et facile à imprimer avec cette information, il est plus facile de passer à l’invite de commandes. Windows offre plusieurs façons d’interagir avec les comptes d’utilisateurs à l’invite de commandes.

L’Echo Look est un nouvel appareil d’Amazon qui est capable de jeter un coup d’œil à vos tenues et de vous dire le mieux pour toi. Cependant, vous n’avez pas besoin de l’Echo Look pour obtenir ce type de conseils de mode instantanés d’Amazon. L’application Amazon sur votre smartphone a réellement cette fonctionnalité intégrée, mais elle est légèrement enfouie dans l’application et pas la chose la plus facile trouver.

Recentemente, o SHIELD da NVIDIA se tornou o primeiro dispositivo de TV Android a ter acesso ao OK Google e ao Google Assistente. A coisa é, você realmente precisa que a TV esteja ligada para realmente aproveitar ao máximo isso – mas uma nova configuração ainda permitirá que você a use mesmo quando a tela estiver desligada.

RELACIONADO: Como Obter o máximo da sua Android TV

Antes de entrarmos em como fazer isso, vamos falar primeiro sobre o que esperar ao usar esse recurso. Primeiro, a funcionalidade será bem limitada quando a sua TV estiver desligada. Se você estiver usando-o para, digamos, ligar ou desligar suas luzes (ou recursos semelhantes do smarthome que não requeiram feedback audível ou visual), isso deve funcionar perfeitamente.

Mas como nem o SHIELD nem o controlador têm alto-falantes nelas, não será capaz de responder a perguntas como “qual será o clima amanhã”. A exceção aqui é se você tiver uma barra de som ou um receptor e alto-falantes separados conectados à sua TV. Simplesmente deixe a barra de som ligada para ouvir o Assistente. É claro que isso pode não funcionar com todas as TVs e com todas as barras de som – você só precisará experimentar.

A NVIDIA provavelmente está trabalhando em algumas soluções alternativas para esses dilemas, mas até descobrir alguma coisa, Isto é o que você recebe. Apesar de suas deficiências, no entanto, definitivamente ainda vale a pena usá-lo – especialmente se você não tem algo como o Google Home para fazer o trabalho. OBSERVAÇÃO: sempre ouvir só é suportado no controlador remodelado 2017, que é totalmente compatível com o conversores de primeira geração da SHIELD.

Tudo bem! Com isso fora do caminho, salte para o menu de configurações da SHIELD: role até a linha inferior e clique no ícone de roda dentada.

A partir daí, vá até a entrada System e dê um clique.

Há algumas opções aqui, mas você está procurando a última opção: ative “OK Google” quando a TV estiver desligada. “Você também notará isso em versão beta, por isso não se surpreenda se ela ficar um pouco sem jeito às vezes.

Quando você clica nesse menu, uma advertência será exibida informando que você precisará pelo menos deixar sua barra de som ligada para ouvir o Assistente, que já mencionamos acima.

Vá em frente e alterne aquele bad boy, e você vai embora. Coisas boas.

A partir daí, você poderá integrar melhor a SHIELD à configuração da sua casa inteligente, tratando-a como um produto adicional do Google Home, especialmente se integrada ao link SmartThings da Samsung. Coisas muito legais.

Descobrir qual PS4 comprar pode ser interessante – ainda mais se você já tiver um PS4 e estiver considerando uma atualização para o novo PS4 Pro. A boa notícia é que o PS4 e PS4 Slim são, para todos os efeitos, a mesma máquina na maior parte, e todas as três máquinas jogarão os mesmos jogos. Alguns podem jogá-los com recursos extras ou gráficos melhores, então vamos falar sobre as principais diferenças.

O Chrome não suporta mais nenhum plug-in, exceto o Flash, e nem o Flash será executado automaticamente, a menos que você conceda permissão. No entanto, o novo comportamento “clique para reproduzir” do Chrome é um pouco diferente do antigo.

For nylig blev NVIDIA SHIELD den første Android TV-enhed for at få adgang til OK Google og Google Assistent. Sagen er, du har virkelig brug for fjernsynet for at virkelig få det mest ud af det – men en ny indstilling vil stadig lade dig bruge den selv når skærmen er slukket.

RELATERET: Sådan kommer du i gang Det bedste ud af dit Android TV

Før vi kommer ind på, hvordan vi gør det, skal vi først snakke om, hvad vi kan forvente, når du bruger denne funktion. For det første vil funktionaliteten være ret begrænset, når dit tv er slukket. Hvis du bruger det til at sige, tænde eller slukke lyset (eller sammenlignelige smarthome-funktioner, der ikke kræver lyd- eller visuel feedback), skal det fungere perfekt.

Men da hverken SHIELD eller controlleren har højttalere På dem vil det ikke være i stand til at svare på spørgsmål som “hvad er vejret i morgen.” Undtagelsen her er, om du har en soundbar eller separat modtager og højttalere tilsluttet dit tv. Du skal bare forlade lydbjælken for at høre assistenten. Selvfølgelig kan det måske ikke virke med hvert tv og hvert soundbar. Du skal bare eksperimentere med det.

NVIDIA arbejder sandsynligvis på nogle alternative løsninger til disse quandaries, men indtil de finder ud af noget, dette er hvad du får. På trods af manglerne er det dog absolut værd at bruge – især hvis du ikke har noget som Google Home til at udføre jobbet.

BEMÆRK: Lytningen understøttes kun på 2017-omformeren, som er fuldt kompatibel med first generation SHIELD set-top box.

Okay! Med det ud af vejen skal du springe ind i SHIELDs indstillingsmenu: Rulle hele vejen til den nederste række og klik på gearikonet.

Dernæst, gå ned til systemindtastningen og giv det et klik.

Der er nogle få muligheder her, men du leder efter den sidste: Aktiver “OK ​​Google”, når fjernsynet er slukket. “Du vil også bemærke dette i beta, så vær ikke overrasket, hvis det er lidt buggy til tider.

Når du klikker på denne menu, vil der blive vist en advarsel, som giver dig besked om, at du mindst skal afslutte din lydbøjle for at høre assistenten, som vi allerede har nævnt ovenfor.

Gå videre og veksle den dårlige dreng på, og væk du går. Gode ​​ting.

Fra det tidspunkt skal du være i stand til bedre at integrere SHIELD i din smarte hjemmeopsætning og behandle det som et ekstra Google Home-produkt – især hvis det er integreret med Samsungs SmartThings-link. Meget seje ting.

Selvom hovedparten af ​​bærbare computere – og endda desktops – nu leveres med Bluetooth-support, har nogle af os stadig brug for Bluetooth-opgraderinger. Hvis du rocker en enhed uden Bluetooth-support, skal du ikke bekymre dig. Læs videre, da vi viser dig, hvordan du tilføjer Bluetooth-understøttelse nemt og billigt til enhver computer.

Du behøver ikke en spilmus for at spille pc-spil – næsten enhver mus med to knapper, og et hjul vil spille alt, hvad du vil have det til. Men det er ingen grund til at benægte dig selv det vidunderlige udvalg af spilmusdesign på markedet. En spilmus vil ikke gøre dig til et proffs, men det kan give dig en lille konkurrencefordel og gøre nogle spil meget mere behagelige og nemme at spille.

Gần đây, SHIELD của NVIDIA đã trở thành thiết bị Android TV đầu tiên có quyền truy cập vào OK Google và Google Assistant. Vấn đề là, bạn thực sự cần bật TV để thực sự tận dụng tối đa – nhưng một cài đặt mới vẫn sẽ cho phép bạn sử dụng ngay cả khi màn hình tắt.

Tuy nhiên, trước khi chúng ta tìm hiểu cách thực hiện điều đó, trước tiên chúng ta hãy nói về những gì mong đợi khi sử dụng tính năng này. Đầu tiên, chức năng sẽ bị hạn chế khi TV của bạn tắt. Nếu bạn đang sử dụng nó để bật hoặc tắt đèn (hoặc các tính năng thông minh tương đương không yêu cầu phản hồi bằng âm thanh hoặc hình ảnh), thì nó sẽ hoạt động hoàn hảo.

Nhưng vì cả SHIELD và bộ điều khiển đều không có loa trên chúng, nên nó sẽ không thể trả lời các câu hỏi – giống như thời tiết sẽ diễn ra vào ngày mai. Trực tiếp ngoại lệ ở đây là nếu bạn có một soundbar hoặc bộ thu và loa riêng biệt được gắn vào TV của bạn. Đơn giản chỉ cần để lại soundbar để nghe Trợ lý. Tất nhiên, điều đó có thể không hoạt động với mọi TV và mọi soundbar, – bạn sẽ phải thử nghiệm với nó.

NVIDIA có khả năng đang nghiên cứu một số giải pháp thay thế cho các tình huống khó khăn này, nhưng cho đến khi họ tìm ra điều gì đó, đây là những gì bạn nhận được. Mặc dù còn thiếu sót, tuy nhiên, nó chắc chắn vẫn đáng sử dụng – đặc biệt là nếu bạn không có thứ gì đó như Google Home để thực hiện công việc.

LƯU Ý: Luôn luôn chỉ nghe được hỗ trợ trên bộ điều khiển được sửa lại 2017, tương thích hoàn toàn với hộp set-top SHIELD thế hệ đầu tiên.

Ổn thỏa! Sau đó, nhảy vào menu cài đặt của SHIELD: cuộn toàn bộ đến hàng dưới cùng và nhấp vào biểu tượng bánh răng.

Từ đó, đi xuống mục Hệ thống và nhấp chuột vào.

Có một vài lựa chọn ở đây, nhưng bạn đang tìm kiếm cái cuối cùng: Kích hoạt tính năng OK OK của Google khi TV bị tắt. Bạn sẽ lưu ý điều này trong bản beta, vì vậy đừng ngạc nhiên nếu đôi khi nó hơi bị lỗi.

Khi bạn nhấp vào menu này, một cảnh báo sẽ được hiển thị cho bạn biết rằng ít nhất bạn sẽ cần phải rời khỏi soundbar của mình để nghe Trợ lý, mà chúng tôi đã đề cập ở trên.

Hãy tiếp tục và chuyển cậu bé xấu số đó đi, và bạn đi. Đồ tốt.

Từ thời điểm đó trở đi, bạn sẽ có thể tích hợp SHIELD tốt hơn vào thiết lập nhà thông minh của mình, coi nó như một sản phẩm Google Home bổ sung – đặc biệt là nếu được tích hợp với liên kết SmartThings của Samsung. Những thứ rất tuyệt.

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.

75-Inch 4K Toshiba TV

Big savings
This 75-Inch 4K Toshiba TV has M550 backlights for excellent control of light and dark on the screen, features 4K resolution, Dolby Vision HDR and HDR10+, and can be controlled using Alexa for a more futuristic and fancy feel.

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.

Onlangs is NVIDIA’s SHIELD het eerste Android TV-apparaat dat toegang kreeg tot OK Google en Google Assistent. Het punt is dat je de tv echt nodig hebt om er echt optimaal van te kunnen profiteren, maar met een nieuwe instelling kun je hem ook gebruiken als het scherm is uitgeschakeld.

GERELATEERD: Hoe kom je eraan Het meeste uit uw Android TV

Laten we eerst even bespreken wat we kunnen verwachten bij het gebruik van deze functie, voordat we ingaan op hoe dat moet. Ten eerste zal de functionaliteit behoorlijk beperkt zijn wanneer je tv uit staat. Als je het gebruikt om bijvoorbeeld licht in of uit te schakelen (of vergelijkbare smarthome-functies die geen hoorbare of visuele feedback vereisen), zou dat perfect moeten werken.

Maar aangezien noch de SHIELD noch de controller luidsprekers hebben voor hen is het niet mogelijk om vragen te beantwoorden, zoals ‘wat is het weer morgen’. De uitzondering hierop is als u een soundbar of aparte ontvanger en luidsprekers op uw tv hebt aangesloten. Laat de soundbar gewoon aanstaan ​​om de assistent te horen. Natuurlijk werkt dat misschien ook niet met elke tv en elke soundbar – je zult er gewoon mee moeten experimenteren. NVIDIA werkt waarschijnlijk aan een aantal alternatieve oplossingen voor deze problemen, maar totdat ze erachter komen, dit is wat je krijgt. Ondanks de tekortkomingen is het echter zeker nog steeds de moeite waard om te gebruiken, vooral als je niet zoiets als Google Home hebt om het werk te doen. OPMERKING: Altijd luisteren wordt alleen ondersteund op de gereviseerde 2017-controller, die volledig compatibel is met de eerste generatie SHIELD set-top box.

Oke! Ga daarmee weg in SHIELD’s instellingenmenu: scrol helemaal naar de onderste rij en klik op het tandwielpictogram.

Ga vanaf daar naar het systeemitem en klik erop.

zijn hier een paar opties, maar je bent op zoek naar de laatste: schakel “OK Google” in wanneer de tv is uitgeschakeld. “Je zult dit ook in bèta opmerken, dus wees niet verrast als het soms wat buggy is.

Wanneer u in dit menu klikt, wordt een waarschuwing weergegeven om u te laten weten dat u uw soundbar op uw minst moet laten staan ​​om de assistent te horen, die we hierboven al noemden.

Ga je gang en wissel af die stoute jongen aan, en weg ga jij. Goed nieuws. Vanaf dat moment zou u SHIELD beter moeten kunnen integreren in uw slimme thuisinstallatie en het als een extra Google Home-product kunnen behandelen, vooral als het is geïntegreerd met de SmartThings-koppeling van Samsung. Heel coole dingen.

Apple heeft met hun nieuwe MacBook Pro behoorlijk wat gedoe gemaakt. Hoewel de Touch Bar mogelijk de meeste aandacht heeft getrokken, is dat wat Apple heeft verwijderd van hun topklasse laptop waar mensen over praten. Namelijk: poorten. Het lijkt erop dat Apple zijn missie heeft gedaan om iedereen USB-C te laten gebruiken.

Nylig ble NVIDIA SHIELD den første Android TV-enheten for å få tilgang til OK Google og Google Assistent. Saken er at du virkelig trenger fjernsynet for å virkelig få mest mulig ut av det – men en ny innstilling lar deg fortsatt bruke den selv når skjermen er slått av.

RELATED: Hvordan komme seg Det beste ut av Android TV-en din

Før vi kommer inn på hvordan du gjør det, kan vi først snakke om hva du kan forvente når du bruker denne funksjonen. For det første vil funksjonaliteten være ganske begrenset når TVen er slått av. Hvis du bruker den til å si, slå lysene på eller av (eller sammenlignbare smarthome-funksjoner som ikke krever hørbar eller visuell tilbakemelding), bør det fungere perfekt.

Men siden verken SHIELD eller kontrolleren har høyttalere På dem vil det ikke være i stand til å svare på spørsmål, som “Været kommer til å bli i morgen.” Unntaket her er om du har en lydbar eller separat mottaker og høyttalere som er koblet til TVen din. Bare la lydstangen stå på for å høre assistenten. Selvfølgelig kan det heller ikke fungere med alle TV-apparater og lydbøker. Du må bare eksperimentere med det.

NVIDIA jobber sannsynligvis med noen alternative løsninger på disse problemene, men til de finner ut noe, dette er hva du får. Til tross for manglene, er det imidlertid absolutt verdt å bruke – spesielt hvis du ikke har noe som Google Home for å gjøre jobben.

MERK: Alltid lytter støttes kun på 2017-omformet kontroller, som er fullt kompatibel med første generasjon SHIELD set-top-boks.

OK! Med det ut av veien, hopp inn i SHIELDs innstillingsmeny: bla helt til nederste rad og klikk på tannhjulikonet.

Derfra går du ned til Systemoppføringen og gir den et klikk.

Der er noen få alternativer her, men du leter etter den siste: Aktiver “OK ​​Google” når TV-en er slått av. “Du vil også merke dette i beta, så vær ikke overrasket om det er litt buggy til tider.

Når du klikker på denne menyen, vises en advarsel som forteller at du må slutte lydbrikken for å høre assistenten, som vi allerede nevnte ovenfor.

Gå videre og bytt den dårlige gutten på, og vekk du går. Gode ​​ting.

Fra det tidspunktet bør du kunne integrere SHIELD bedre i ditt smarte hjemmeoppsett, og behandle det som et ekstra Google Home-produkt, spesielt hvis det er integrert med Samsungs SmartThings-link. Veldig kule ting.

E-post pleide å være det eneste domenet til den jordbundne kontorbehandleren, en kjedelig og beige utvikling av faksen og notatet. I dag er e-post fortsatt ganske kjedelig (hei, vi kommer ikke til å lyve for deg), men det er også en viktig del av nettlivet for alle som har en Internett-tilkobling. Gratis, nettbasert e-post er standard forsinket kommunikasjonsprotokoll for det meste av planeten .

Instagram er en ganske godt designet app. Flertallet av funksjonene er hvor du forventer at de skal være, selv om noen av dem er litt skjulte. En funksjon som er uforklarlig vanskelig å finne, er hvordan du legger til linjeskift eller avsnitt til Instagram-bildetekster på IOS. Heldigvis for Android-fans er det normalt: bare trykk Retur.

Nyligen blev NVIDIA SHIELD den första Android TV-enheten för att få tillgång till OK Google och Google Assistent. Saken är att du verkligen behöver TV: n för att verkligen få ut det mesta, men en ny inställning låter dig använda den även när skärmen är av.

RELATED: Hur man får Det mesta av din Android TV

Innan vi får veta hur vi gör det, låt oss först prata om vad vi kan förvänta oss när du använder den här funktionen. För det första kommer funktionaliteten att vara ganska begränsad när din TV är avstängd. Om du använder den till att säga, tända eller tända dina lampor (eller jämförbara smarthome-funktioner som inte kräver hörbar eller visuell återkoppling), ska det fungera perfekt.

Men eftersom varken SHIELD eller regulatorn har högtalare På dem kommer det inte att kunna svara på frågor – som “vädret kommer att vara imorgon”. Undantaget här är om du har en soundbar eller separat mottagare och högtalare anslutna till din TV. Låt bara ljudraden vara på för att höra assistenten. Det kan givetvis inte fungera med varje TV och varje ljudstång. Du måste bara experimentera med det.

NVIDIA arbetar noga med några alternativa lösningar på dessa problem, men tills de ritar ut något, det här är vad du får. Trots sina brister är det dock definitivt värt att använda – speciellt om du inte har något som Google Home för att göra jobbet.

OBS! Alltid att lyssna stöds bara på 2017-omformad kontroller, som är helt kompatibel med first generation SHIELD set-top box.

Okej! Med det ur vägen, hoppa in i SHIELDs inställningsmeny: rulla hela vägen till den nedre raden och klicka på kugghjulsikonen.

Därifrån, gå ner till Systeminmatningen och ge det ett klick.

Där är några alternativ här, men du letar efter den sista: Aktivera “OK Google” när TV: n är avstängd. Du noterar också detta i beta, så bli inte förvånad om det är lite buggy ibland.

När du klickar på den här menyn visas en försiktighet som låter dig veta att du måste åtminstone lämna din ljudfält för att höra assistenten, som vi redan nämnde ovan.

Fortsätt och växla den dåliga pojken på, och borta går du. Bra saker.

Från och med den tiden borde du kunna integrera SHIELD bättre i din smarta heminstallation och behandla den som en extra Google Home-produkt, speciellt om den är integrerad med Samsungs SmartThings-länk. Mycket coola saker.

Varför Fake a Free Image? Så varför skulle någon försöka fake en fri lagerbild om ens den ursprungliga fotografen inte får betalt för det? Det är faktiskt den fria delen som gör den lukrativ: Spammare letar efter lagerfoton som publiceras med licensvillkor som tillåter dem att användas fritt och modifieras, speciellt om det inkluderar profittprogram.

I ett försök att stärka iPad: s multitasking förmågor introducerade iOS 11 en ny funktion som automatiskt sätter dina senast använda appar på höger sida av iPad dockningen, åtskilda av en linje. Det här förmodligen gör det lättare att byta mellan dem, men om du inte är en fan så här är det hur du blir av med det.

Son zamanlarda, NVIDIA SHIELD, Tamam Google’a ve Google Asistan’a erişen ilk Android TV cihazı oldu. Mesele şu ki, gerçekten faydalanabilmek için TV’nin açık olması gerekiyor, ancak yeni bir ayar ekran kapalıyken bile kullanmanıza izin verecek.

Yine de, bunun nasıl yapılacağına girmeden önce, bu özelliği kullanırken neler bekleyeceğinizi konuşalım. İlk olarak, TV’niz kapalıyken işlevler oldukça sınırlı olacak. Işıkları açmak veya kapatmak için kullanıyorsanız (veya sesli veya görsel geribildirim gerektirmeyen karşılaştırılabilir akıllı ev özellikleri),.

Ancak, ne SHIELD ne de kontrolörde konuşmacılar olmadığından, “yarın hava ne olacak” gibi soruları cevaplayamaz. TV’niz. Asistanı dinlemek için sadece ses çubuğunu açık bırakın. Tabii ki, bu her TV ve her ses çubuğu ile çalışmayabilir, ya – sadece denemek zorunda kalacaksınız.

NVIDIA muhtemelen bu ikinci derecelere bazı alternatif çözümler üzerinde çalışıyor, ancak bir şey bulana kadar, elde ettiğiniz şey bu. Ancak, eksikliklerine rağmen, özellikle de işi yapmak için Google Home’a sahip değilseniz, kesinlikle kullanmaya değer.

NOT: Her zaman dinleme, yalnızca ilk nesil SHIELD alıcı kutusu ile tam uyumlu olan 2017 yeni model kumandasında desteklenir..

Peki! Bunun dışında, SHIELD’in ayarlar menüsüne atla: sonuna kadar kaydır ve dişli simgesini tıkla.

Oradan, Sistem girişine gidin ve bir tıklama verin.

Burada birkaç seçenek var, ancak sonuncuyu arıyorsunuz: TV kapalıyken “Tamam Google” ı etkinleştirin. “Bunu beta olarak da not edersiniz, bu nedenle zaman zaman biraz buggy olursa şaşırmayın.

Bu menüye tıkladığınızda, yukarıda bahsettiğimiz Asistanı duymak için en azından ses çubuğunu açık bırakmanız gerektiğini bildiren bir uyarı görüntülenir..

Devam et ve o kötü çocuğu aç ve git. İyi şeyler.

Bu noktadan itibaren, SHIELD’i akıllı ev kurulumunuza daha iyi entegre edebilmeniz, özellikle Samsung’un SmartThings bağlantısı ile entegre olması durumunda ek bir Google Ana Sayfa ürünü olarak görmeniz gerekir. Çok güzel şeyler.

I researched and tested for several hours to create a complete and up-to-date guide on how to set up NordVPN on Nvidia Shield.

By “complete,” I mean aiming to cover the most common problems and workarounds reported in the last few years.

And by “up-to-date”, I mean considering the most popular usages like streaming Netflix in restricted locations.

Some recommendations are based on my experience working with this and similar technologies that are a big part of my life.

I found some useful features in the NordVPN application like CyberSec, a built-in ad blocker, and listed them.

Return to the beginning and try another method from the list if you have problems with the service after finishing the setup.

Ready to Set Up NVIDIA Shield with NordVPN? Go for It!

It is the most popular and will achieve proper working in most cases.

Try method B if something goes wrong.

Method C involves buying hardware with a built-in setup, which is more expensive and not always easy to find.

Go to methods D and E as your last options.

A. Downloading NordVPN From Google Play Store

  1. Nvidia Shield comes with Google Play Store App incorporated. Open it and download NordVPN.
  2. You need to have a NordVPN subscription.
  • Click on “Sign Up” if you do not have it.
  • This will display a QR code, which you can scan with a smart device to create an account from a more comfortable keyboard. You will see a NordAccount page in your device’s browser.
  • Follow the steps and finalize the subscription.
  • Open the NordVPN app and log in with your credentials.
  1. You should see this page:

“Connect now” will connect NordVPN to the best server available according to your location.

Otherwise, in “All Countries”, you can select the Server/Country of your choice.

However, I recommend using “Connect now” unless you have good reasons to select a custom server.

Like, need to have an IP of a certain location to access geo-restricted content.

Check this video tutorial below, if you need a better visual guide of the steps described.

B. Using NordVPN Manually Through OpenVPN

OpenVPN is a protocol.

A set of procedures, specifications, and a language you may use to “talk” between devices and/or networks to build the VPN “tunnel.”

OpenVPN also offers an app in which you can load configuration files to set up NordVPN or any VPN service.

  1. Using the Nvidia Shield browser, download the .ovpn configuration file of your preference here. Or use this tool and NordVPN will choose for you.
  1. Download the “OpenVPN Connect” app from Google Play Store also in your Nvidia Shield TV.
  2. Open the app and import the .ovpn configuration file you downloaded.
  3. Input your NordVPN user and password and click “Connect.”

C. Using a Pre-Configured Router With NordVPN

Here you will be using a router that comes with a built-in NordVPN configuration.

This will create a VPN tunnel not only for your TV but for your local network.

This is one of the easiest ways for setting up, but it can be hard to find the hardware depending on where you live.

You may find one here.

D. More Options for Setting up NordVPN on NVIDIA Shield

Did the last methods not work?

Do you have no access to Nvidia Shield Google Play Store App?

Or the downloaded apps described above are not working?

Try these other ways instead!

They will require a bit more technical background (or attention) but don’t worry, you will make it.

Setting up is also possible through a computer or by configuring a supported router.

Using a computer will need sideloading the NordVPN app on your TV.

  1. On your computer, download NordVPN’s APK file from the NordVPN site.
  2. Download the Android SDK Platform Tools ZIP file from here, also on your computer. Extract the contents.
  3. Make sure files downloaded in 1 and 2 are in the same folder.
  4. Activate developer mode on your Nvidia Shield TV by going to Settings –>About, click on “Build.”
  5. Go to Settings –>Developer Options and enable USB Debugging.
  6. Connect via USB your computer to your Shield TV in file transfer mode.
  7. Open a Command/Terminal Window in the folder where you have the recently installed apps. Right-click and choose “Open command window here” on Windows or “Open Terminal Here” on Linux/macOS.
  • On Windows, run adb devices:

You should see the entry of your NvidiaShield TV device in the output.

If successful, run adb install NordVPN.apk to install the app on your TV.

Check for a “success” message.

  • On macOS and Linux, run ./adb devices.

Again, if successful, proceed to run ./adb install NordVPN.apk.

  1. Now that you have NordVPN’s APK on your TV, you can proceed to install and configure it as in A.

Still not working?

Try configuring your router.

  1. You will first have to check if your router’s model and firmware supports. Check in the router’s user manual. It should say that it supports OpenVPN Client. A quick Google search can also work. ISP-provided routers with their native firmware usually do not work. NordVPN provides a list of known not-supported routers here. Ask NordVPN customer support if you do not find the information for your model.
  1. Is it supported? Great! Access your router’s control panel with your browser:

Try 192.168.0.1 if that address does not work.

Or check your router’s IP in your Wi-Fi configuration.

  1. You will need your credentials to log in. Did you forget them? Is it your first time accessing your router’s configuration? “admin” for Username and Password, are usually the default ones. Check your user manual or contact the router provider if you have problems logging in.

Nvidia Shield is a name known by gamers and streaming fans. This advanced entertainment solutions provides excellent technology, but if you want to make the most of it, you should consider adding a VPN. With a VPN, you can get around any restrictions that get on your way and access a wider selection of content. It is an effective solution to bypass geo-blocks, giving you the chance to enjoy apps and services that are not usually available in your region. Using a VPN also lets you keep your identity and real location hidden since your IP address is masked. This is ideal for anonymity and since a VPN also encrypts your internet traffic, your privacy is also protected. If you want to take your security to the next level while using Nvidia Shield TV, we highly recommend to install a VPN on it. Here you will find the instructions to complete this process.

Installing a VPN on Nvidia Shield

If you have access to Google Play Store, you can try the method below to install a VPN on Nvidia Shield.

  1. Select a VPN (we will give you a list of the best services available) and register with it.
  2. Open your Nvidia Shield TV and open Google Play Store
  3. Look for the VPN Android app and click on it
  4. Download and install the VPN on your Nvidia Shield TV
  5. You may click on Open when the installation process is completed, or you can return to the Nvidia Shield homepage and open the VPN app.
  6. Log in to your VPN account and from within the app, connect to a VPN server in the location you want to get access to. Remember that if you are looking to watch content or play a game that is only available in a specific country, you need to connect to a server there. For instance, if you want to access content that is usually only available in the US, you need to make sure that you connect to a server located there.

What are the advantages of using a VPN on Nvidia Shield?

Using a VPN gives you freedom to get access to international content, even if it is subject to geographical blocks. You can also boost the security of your internet traffic because a VPN uses encryption to protect it from prying eyes. Encryption scrambles your data, preventing other people from reading your conversations, seeing what websites you visit or anything else. Here is a summary of the benefits that Nvidia Shield TV users can get when they use a VPN.

Unblock Geo-restricted Kodi Add-ons: With a VPN, you can bypass restrictions and get access to a lot of add-ons, including those that are restricted to specific locations. VPNs let you overcome regional restrictions since you can get an IP address from other locations, which will give you access to more content.

Access Geo-blocked Apps: Apart from Kodi add-ons, there are also popular streaming services such as BBC iPlayer, Hulu and Pandora, that are only available in specific locations. With a VPN, you can overcome the blocks and access any website or app, regardless of your location.

Bypass ISP throttling: It is likely that you have noticed at some point that your connection slows down, particularly when you are streaming content or playing games. This is probably because your ISP is throttling your connection. With a VPN, you can avoid this because you can hide what you are doing. If your VPN doesn’t know that you are streaming content, they won’t be able to throttle your connection for this purpose. They would have to slow down your entire traffic and this something that they cannot do.

Protect your privacy: A VPN adds an extra layer of privacy and security, keeping all your activities protected. Others won’t be able to see what you are doing.

VPN apps: VPN apps from the best providers are easy to use and they give you access to all the functions that you need. You don’t need to have previous experience with a VPN to be able to handle one. Most providers have dedicated apps for all popular platforms including Mac, Windows, iOS and Android.
