NVIDIA Shield is getting a small but welcome software update today. In addition to new apps — we've already detailed the NCAA March Madness app (and the NHL app actually has been available for a couple months now), there also are a few nerdy improvements worth noting.
- Adds the option to restart Wi-Fi service if wireless APs aren't visible (Settings > Network > Restart Wi-Fi)
- Improves customizability for HDMI-CEC Power controls
- Adds support for the wired XBOX Elite controller
- Controllers and remotes get updated software, too
That first one's kind of important because Wifi wonk is definitely a thing. All in all, a nice little update on what still is the only Android TV box we recommend you actually buy.
