Shield tv video artifacts

Post by mimmic » Thu May 30, 2019 8:32 pm

Hoping I can get some help with this. My shield tv 2015 has some video artifacts showing up. My iPhone and iPad do not have this issue. I have a shield tv 2017 but can't confirm if it's happening there. It also seems to be happening only on certain channels.

Example ... w#IMG_0002

Any ideas?

I'm not able to open that file. What format is it supposed to be?

Which channels have it?

You may be running into the decoding issue with the Shield's processor. It's a known issue with no known fix within the Shield itself as it's a hardware issue.

See this post in the Nvidia Shield forums: ... nnel-s-/2/

There is a workaround in 2 apps (not sure if I can mention them here) but from the native HDHomerun software there isn't.
