My 2019 Tube and Pro models got a 8.1.1 update (the first and only update I have gotten since i bought the things a few months ago).
First thing I notice, is LDAC Bluetooth codec is not functional. I can only get SBC an AAC to work.
Also, the BT Pair Request page that comes up is frozen and u can't click pair....after button smashing up/down and enter a bit, it worked at some point.
I posted this on the Nvidia Shield TV forums and got a support message back to me:
"Geforcedave here. I saw your LADAC codec issue posted on the forum recently. This is a known issue that we are working on to fix in future updates. We'll keep you posted if we need more info.
Sorry for the inconvenience."
"There is no exact time frame but its in the works."
Why release a update with such known and obvious issues.??? How did this update pass testing and QC???? One of the main reasons I bought a Shield is that the Android OS supports LDAC and I use my Sony headphones alot with it....now it sounds like crap.
Just a heads up to Shield users...if they messed up and broke one audio component, they may have messed up some other aspect.
I have not seen any issues so far with Channels DVR use, but thought it worth mentioning here. And if anyone else has any issues pop up after this update, in regards to Channels, to post here.
