Okay, so the Android version upgrade is why it took so long to get this out.

 

Finally, fixes for the stuttering and HDR will be out there :).

I've just hit the scary update button, I already had the fixes in the beta release....

 

...fingers crossed there's no more regressions!

Just curious, as an Android NOOB (...regretting purchase of Apple TV 4K ;) )... how did PRE-Android Pie handle 'Match Content Color Space" for content played ?

Because on the Apple TV 4K, it was already a standard Apple TV setting, when the Apple TV 4K came out.

For a new user or adding new apps this should make things easier. For 4K HDR there's the update too.

For every day use it seems to not add too much as it seems the launcher is the same as UE7.x.

I have had issues with Emby on my Shield with certain UHD movies, even ones that weren't cropped. For example Spider Man Into the Spider Verse the red of his suit was always more of an orange. Just hit the update and all my UHD files work properly. Thats great.

 

Noticed in the notes apps now have the ability change the resolution to 720p, tried inside emby but it only went to 1080p. Hopefully this is something that gets added in the future?

I hope the issues where playback suddenly stops on remote play is fixed. Looking forward to testing it.

First thing I've tried is to play a cropped HDR movie, no joy for me issue still persists. Like before, no problem with remux movies. Have you tried to play a HDR cropped movie?

I was wondering if that was actually fixed. There's nothing in the release notes about it.

I've pretty much lost all faith in the shield. I only use it test for flaws.

Three Shields upgraded.

No issues so far.

I don't have any cropped content.

Yes, unfortunately, it looks like this fix did not make the release.

According to their release notes: https://forums.gefor...ce-upgrade-8-0/

Fixed bug where cropped HDR content would not enable HDR playback in Emby
