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.
