C4 driver for nVidia Shield

Recommended Posts


IRUSB version 2.1.0 (with firmware V225) has been submitted and will go live later today on most devices.  You will have to run the firmware update inside the app to update your IRUSB hardware to V225 for the new functionality.

I have done one. It works w Irusb. If you keep the IP the same it won't

Great. Thanks for the helpful Intel @msgreenf!

Reason I'm looking to replace my current Shield is to get Atmos support for Disney and Netflix. lt sounds like it's definitely coming to the 2019 version, but unclear if the 2017 version will get it.

Thinking about picking up an Nvidia Shield. Aside from the IRusb device, what other driver(s) are required to make this work and what marketplace sells them?

You'll need to get the pro Shield. On the new models it's the only one with USB ports.

Nevermind, my phone took me to an old post and I didn't see the date until after I replied.

That is only part of it. For Android based devices it serves as an input device and mimicks a keyboard. So you would use the ir to control a 2nd device

That's what I was getting at. But it was also a two year old post because my phone jumped to wrong place and I didn't notice.

Cool. Is there a paid driver for that? If so, what marketplace is it purchased from?

Videostorm offers a free driver that covers most of the basic needs on their site and Alan Chow offers a paid driver with more features on his site.

What I've noticed with the new version is if I'm already using the Shield for an activity, selecting a new activity takes me to a recently used menu instead of the app I've selected. I have to "Room Off" before selecting a new activity and have it function properly.

Ok. Regarding the idea of having Shield icons, I have tried the route of unzipping the c4z file, replacing all the png files and rezipping into a new file. I downloaded a 1024x1024 png icon and ran it through the C4 icon tool to generated the images. I then deleted the driver in the driver folder and copied in the new file with Shield icons. Then I deleted the driver from the project, rebooted the controller, added the new driver, made connections, refreshed navigators..., and I still have a generic cable box icon for the shield.  What have I done wrong?

 

Thank you,

 

Eric

Are you using just IRUSB or IRUSB + netplay?  Which Shield?

Seems correct.  Check the file names in the driver XML file to make sure they are correct and have the correct paths.

I didn't change any of the text in the xml. That being said I did notice that all the icons in the original are Amazon icons but they never showed up anywhere either.

Might be a typo in the xml.  Where do you see the icons (on screen navigator, etc)?

Ok, so I did some digging and figured out from the Apple TV IR driver that Jesse Smith made, that the icon locations listed in the xml have to match the driver filename.  So I changed mediaplay_ip_amazon_fire to mediaplayer_android_irusb and BOOM! I now have the Nvidia icons I chose to use both in the app and on the OSD. I was even able to get the logo to show in the identification window.  I included the rezipped file that I made for personal use as a Shield driver. The only changes I made were the icons, where they are located in the driver, corrections to location information in the xml, and correction to the information for "identify_image.gif"

Awesome :)  I'll fix the typo in our version also.
