NVIDIA Shield Android TV update 2.1 fixes black levels over HDMI and adds new apps and games


NVIDIA has updated their Shield TV set top box to software version 2.1, which is overall looking like a pretty minor update. The new software fixes some compatibility issues with HDMI and improves black levels on screen over HDMI. Nothing major there, but a welcome fix for anyone having issues after the 2.0 update. 

The Shield TV isn’t getting any new features with this update, per se, but NVIDIA is loading a few apps in with the update. You’ll get a new Showtime and Disney Movies app for watching shows and movies, and the update includes two new games; Contrast, and Pix the Cat. It sounds like NVIDIA is anticipating lots of kids having access to a Shield TV.
