Re: TWC TV on Nvidia Shield

Rejoice fellow Shield TV owners. Release 5.10.0 works on my Shield. I am not running the stock Shield OS. I installed full Android Nougat a little while ago. This gives me full Playstore and this release was available today.  I will be interested in others feedback.

While "installing" full nougat sounds innocuous enough and may indeed work, it is not the answer for most. Just the possiblity of bricking your shield to garner use of what should be an  open platform app seems like overkill.

 

TWC/SPECTRUM needs to implement the insertion of its app to all media home streamers as soon as possible....meaning today.

 

Why they have chosen the weakest streaming devices as OK FOR USE, eludes me.

 

Spectrum will have to comply as there "box rental" fees are on the FCC's short list of things to "dispose of".

 

So Spectrum, write the code please!

Re: TWC TV on Nvidia Shield

Sideloaded the latest app today from es explorer. After some fiddling, it works.... Sorta.

Must use a mouse or the game controller. The wand does not get it done. Let alone my universal...

A bit glitchy but plays the live stuff well. No way to access the Dvr that I could find but I have not tried too hard there. It might not even be possible. I just do not know.

Anyway, if your stb fails, you have a backup of sorts.

All the best,

Re: TWC TV on Nvidia Shield

Was about to sign up for spectrum TV and I have a Shield console. Noticed the play store shows this device as not compatible (Android TV), good thing I didn't pull the trigger.

 

Think I'll wait for official support before ordering.

Re: TWC TV on Nvidia Shield

Is there any work being done for an Android TV app? I'm not asking for an eta. I just want to know that Spectrum is working on an app for this platform.

Re: TWC TV on Nvidia Shield

I suppose casting is the only way to make this work for now. I think in 2 years from now, all Spectrum will focus on is bandwidth throttling/price tiering via leveraging net neutrality, They will be out of the programming/content business. Maybe we are already there because we pay over $100 for the required bandwidth to drive anything above 1080p and $3 for basic live channels to watch fake news and the Oscars. So bummed.
, I just spent $2000 on a 4K HDR smart TV and apparently I can't watch live tv unless I run RG-6 coax with a staple gun through my livingroom and hook up the hybrid toaster/cable box and have 5 remotes . It's 2017 guys . Change or Die . Maybe even better than trying to cast , I just buy a digital antenna for Cyber Monday and save $3 a month for the prgramming I can't access. , will pay itself off in 10 months . lol
