NVIDIA Shield 3.1 Beta Gives Test Users HDMI-CEC Fixes

NVIDIA sent out a survey a few days ago asking for user feedback on their NVIDIA Shield TV and what problems they had. It seems like a number of users reported problems with HDMI-CEC (consumer electronics control), which allow the console to send commands to the TV for things like turning the TV on when the Shield wakes up.

NVIDIA has decided to quickly respond, and now some users are reporting that they’re seeing an OTA update. The new beta, version 3.1, seems to have been built specifically to target this CEC issue, and users are confirming that the problem has been resolved.

Users are only seeing this if they filled out the survey. They’d have to mention the issue, opt-in to receiving future beta updates, and then give the serial number of their Shield so that their device can be targeted.

Make sure you fill out this form if you running into any issues. There may be several more beta updates over the coming weeks to make sure there are no problems before rolling out the fix globally.
