  1. Not feeling terribly optimistic as a Swansea fan. New manager just hired with no senior-team management experience, offloading almost the last of our premier league players, little to no chance of any major signings. I think we'll just about survive in the middle of the bottom half of the table but I think there's little to no chance of a promotion. Not too much to get excited by!
  2. I had really high hopes for the season after New Eden. I felt it was going to turn into Star Trek again. I feel sad remembering that now
  3. I remember the first time I played it. It was at the Hereford May Fair (an annual event where the main streets are closed and turned into a giant funfair) and I would have been 8 or 9. I was so disorientated and in awe of what I'd just played that, walking out of the temporary arcade, I stepped right into a pile of fresh human vomit that was lying on the floor There, that's my memory!
  4. I can use my wired 360 controller just fine. Wonder why the elite doesnt work for you..
  5. There are quite a few games I've had that, if you visit the play store on a pc web browser, will allow you to select your shield as an install target (even if they don't appear when you search on the native play store on the shield). Some of them even give proper banners on the homescreen too. Sideloading the apkpure app (which just mirrors the apks that are on google play) is a good bet for others though. That will happily let you install unmodified apks so you can still link to google play services and get your save-games/progress/achievements etc working. Going via more dodgy stores like aptoide often gets you modded apks instead...
  6. Yep, nothing else. Our cable provider (ComHem, I live in Sweden) has an app that you can install on it and stream all live channels (and catch up services). They gave us a tivo box too but i've never actually plugged it in to the telly as I didn't see any reason to. Plus there are apps for netflix/spotify/iplayer etc etc for all other telly and music stuff. The Shield has enough grunt that all the apps are nice and snappy to use, unlike the lag-fest of using most apps natively installed on smart tellies. I sold my xbox a while ago and just stream my PC games to the telly via the Shield now (either from my local PC in the spare room on Gamestream, or cloud streaming on GeForce Now). The controller's actually really nice for gaming. It looks like a nightmare but is pretty good. But you can use ps4/xb1 pads wirelessly on it too if you prefer.
  7. I love me my Shield. It's the only box under our telly now.
  8. Nvidia Shield for me, since it does so much more than emulation too. It has your Netflix/iPlayer etc, plus local PC game streaming on Gamestream and remote PC streaming on GeForce Now, and all kinds of dodgy video streaming on Kodi/Morpheus/Plex etc. And Android gaming if you want it
  9. I bet that if they'd ditched the music then they could have had it running a bit faster!
  10. The 2015 (but not the 2017 updated version) of the gamepad controller (i.e. the joypad, not the remote control) is WiFi-Direct. All the other controllers are Bluetooth.
  11. Wow, so nice! Even has the music, from what I can hear I shall give this a go!
  12. Ah, beta fix available if you sign up here https://forums.geforce.com/default/topic/1090943/shield-tv/shield-experience-7-2-2-test-images/
  13. Sounds like PS3 controller support is temporarily borked (page 2 of this thread) https://forums.geforce.com/default/topic/1004150/shield-tv/ps3-controller-support/2/
