Could really use a "Local Input In" Channel.
Thinking of the days of Windows Media Center, where u could have Composite input mode.
I have only one HDMI input on my monitor, and i am constantly having to change HDMI cables out for my PC, Xbox, and such.
Would be awesome, if, say the sever the DVR was on, had a HDMI capture card, and i could load that input as a Channel in the Channels app on my Shield. So i can switch from a live tv channel, to my pc, or xbox.
I have tried HDMI switcher, but the cheap china ones are trash, and even the expensive ones cause HDCP and other quality/framerate issues.
Maybe, there is a way to setup one of those HDHR emulators, to stream a local input?
Or maybe set VLC in some fashion to take a hardware input and stream it in a fashion said HDHR emulator.
Or of someone knows how to get Windows 10 to cast to a Shield, and i mean the whole OS natively, not just the Google Chrome cast the browser tab...which is too laggy to be useable. And it freezes when i turn off the built in display, or close the lid. I have Googled, and tried a few softwares that claimed to cast, but none of them worked or even detected the Shield.
