You can, also with the remote control of your TV via HDMI CEC functionality. Yes the remote control of your TV can navigate Kodi via hdmi CEC. So is good also for your grandfather, because your soon can prefers other way to interact with your TV. I have a 3 year old son and i know what he like. He prefer the DroidMote mouse, especially to see cartoons on youtube, (the classic youtube app) i'm not joking.I agree that wifi remotes are an awesome options, but for kids (my 3 year old uses Kodi on Shield TV) it's not convenient. They need a simple remote...
Anyone else up with suggestions?
Strauzo is dead, but the work is still continued There was never a free minute, even to go to the bathroom.Strauzo !
What a delight to find you again, to see your trademark brilliance in the Shield's first custom rom and to find your irrepressible humor in full sway. I remember those nights on Freaktab when we raced to test your custom kernels for the MK908 in order to fix its stutter...We've come a long way from that wretched stick to this magnificent new hardware...
Thank you for all that you're doing here - and for your divine sense of comedy...
It works wonderfully. And is the easy way to switch between Android TV and Full Android firmwares.Just to report that FlashFire by @Chainfire works fine for this firmware image update. (for those that don't want to mess with adb for updates)
@zulu99 can you please make live wallpapers work. Some of them work fine on nexus player, while here on nvidia it says 'App isn't installed'
Is there a post to explain the uses of Xposted? You recommended it via post 2/5 but before I root my Nvidia tablet to test I want to see what it will do.If you need the very useful xposed framework, you can download the file xposed-sdk22-arm64-20150514.zip from this link http://forum.xda-developers.com/xposed/xposed-android-5-1-successfully-t3074586 and install from recovery.
After the zip installation from recovery, you can download the apk XposedInstaller_3.0-alpha2.apk from this link http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=3034811 and install like a normal apk.
All works very well.
Usually i use webcam + mic without problems Logitech C525 in Google Now search, Hangouts and in all apps to record audio.@zulu99 is there known issue with hangouts in general, or usb camera (logitech usb with mic).
My audio gets picked up just fine, but camera is a no go. 30 seconds into a call, hangouts freezes as well. Only way to get it back is reboot.
Also on bluetooth some of my bluetooth stereo headsets show only as a headsets, and not also headphones, therefore connecting only as media. Consequently, I can not use microphone function on these.
Those that can, connect as a phone as well and can use google search and hangouts audio, but audio is such a low quality, that it might as well not exist.
For example of I click on Google now search, mic gets recognised (those headsets that connect as phone profile), but there's some awfully screech instead of sound to start talking, and it usually ends with 'google can not recognize anything...)
To be honest, this is the first time I tested these, so that's why I ask and report so late since release.
Other than occasional freeze on reboot, followed by system auto clearing dalwik, and having to wait. (probably xposed fault), everything else I came across is superb.
I Freakin wish my phones were as fast and smooth as this device.
There are many threads on xda, how to use xposed framework.Is there a post to explain the uses of Xposted? You recommended it via post 2/5 but before I root my Nvidia tablet to test I want to see what it will do.
As a reminder, I am trying to get the androidtv experience on my shield tab without the walled garden. Mainly to replace my appletv which is not cutting it.

The webcam HAL in Nexus Player was compiled from a public source. so is experimental but work with hangouts and skype. in skype you can have more than 480p.
Lol. Probably that's why. I pulled my old quickcam orbit from the dustbin. It was a resource hog on my old pc, back in a day, as well.Usually i use webcam + mic without problems Logitech C525 in Google Now search, Hangouts and in all apps to record audio.
To have the video working i have to connect the webcam before boot, or i reboot when i connect the first time.
Bluetooth a2dp audio works well, i use this model http://www.amazon.it/gp/product/B00PVL3EQA , but as a mic no. I will test bluetooth mic better.
Bluetooth mic works on stock firmware ?
I'll do a more thorough test on the issue. Thanks for your suggestions.
