  1. I use a Pronto with RF so I don’t need to point but that’s a whole other topic.
  2. I haven’t tried a USB hub so I don’t know. But to solve your IR Problem you can also use an infrared receiver like this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B009ZGK6QS?psc=1&ref=ppx_pop_mob_b_asin_title
  3. Yes, you need to use a PC to teach the Flirc the commands that you want to use. Download the software from Flirc. No lag problem for me.
  4. I'm away, so I don't have access to my Nvidia Shield TV.. It's been a while since I setup the Flirc. I setup my Flirc a few days after the 2019 Nvidia Shield TV Pro was released, and at the time, there was little or no information about setting up the Flirc for the 2019 Nvidia Shield TV Pro. There may have been updated software or other users' configuration posted since then, but I haven't kept up since I was satisfied with my setup. Anyway, I took some notes for what I used in the Flirc software, which I've written below. Note that this was with version 3.24.0 of the software. I don't know if
  5. Yes, it would be nice to get the Setting button to work. Granted, I don't see a need to have a dedicated button just to go to Settings. However, the Shield allows you to change what the Settings button does, so if you use it to do something else, the Settings button would be good to have. It would also be nice if the Shield allowed a way to redefine the Netflix button (and the Flirc had a way of sending the "Netflix" command). Don't know why Netflix needs its own button as opposed to just calling it something generic and letting the user define what it does.
  6. I had to go over the Flirc documentation and other Flirc forum threads. The Flirc documentation made it seem a lot simpler than it was, but various commands were missing when I only followed the Flirc doc, so I had to define commands using 3 different controllers in the Flirc software. As discussed in the doc & other forum threads, it doesn't matter what remote IR commands you use, as long as they are not used for any other devices in your system. I used the old NVIDIA Shield IR codes. I have a Pronto remote, so I was able to copy-and-paste the old NVIDIA Shield codes posted online to my P
  7. I just got the 2019 NVIDIA Shield TV Pro last 10/28. First Shield TV that I've had. I also got a new Flirc USB in the mail yesterday and I was able to set it up to work with my Shield TV. So far, it works for me. The usual keys work fine (cursor keys, home, back, numeric, play, pause, rewind, forward, stop). I can power it on via the Flirc, but I haven't figured out how to make the Shield sleep via Flirc. Since the Shield automatically sleeps after a certain amount of idle time, it's not a big deal. One thing that I liked with my old Intel NUC for using Plex is that I was able t
  8. Is it possible to define a discrete power on command, so that if the Shield is off/asleep, the power on command wakes it up, but if the Shield is already on, the power on command won't affect whatever the Shield is doing (for example, if it's currently playing a movie, the power on command won't interrupt it)?
  9. I just got the Nvidia Shield TV Pro (2019 version, which came out today). It's my first Nvidia Shield. I'm looking to order the Flirc. I assume that setting up Flirc for use with the 2019 Nvidia Shield should be the same as the 2017 (non-IR receiving) Shield TV?
