Thanks for your answers guys.
For audio, I do not use the box at all.
All my lossless audio files are on a PC that is connected to a hi fi stereo amplifier.
I just need a player to watch a video from a PC, with sound through my Hi Fi stereo amplifier.
I don’t have a video library either. I just download the video to PС, then watch and delete it. With an internet speed of 200 mb / s, this is quite convenient.

No problem oldman777. Sounds like you have a ton of options.

The biggest problem my friend has with his Nvidia Shield is it dropping off his Network.

He has USB Hard drive attached to his Nvidia Shield and is able to access the contents of the Hard drive on other devices on his Local Network … but after a while the Nvidia Shield just randomly decides to drop off the Network and he can’t access the contents of the Hard drive.

I told him i do the same thing with the Raspberry Pi 3 running Kodi … and it NEVER drops off of the Network.

Tried a bunch of stuff recommended from the Nvidia Shield forums and none of the suggestions fixed the problem. He also has a problem where he can’t delete content from the Hard drive attached to the Nivida Shield … ie. He deletes a movie via the Network from the Hard drive … then when he goes back, the file magically re-appears.

I told him it’s most probably a “Permissions” thing … again, i couldn’t help because i can do it on the RPi3 with no issues whatsoever.
