This is not true for me. When I go into the Web play store and select Media Monkey click install I get a greyed out box for:
nVidia Shield Android TV
This item is not comparable with your device.

If I can get this installed, I would be more than happy to test any beta's you have on my nVidia shield Android TV.

Are you looking for beta testers?

I am willing and able, many years in CompSci going back to 1975 on an old CDC mainframe.... Am hoping to also put MMA through its paces on my nVidia Shield boxes, syncing to my MMW server.

If you can use my services can give you a detailed l/wan structure I would be testing on.

Eitger way can you allow MMA to be installed on the Android TV from the playstore. Right now PS just says my device (Android 7.1) is not allowed.

+1 on nvidia shield tv dev. Dlna works great from vlc to MMW repository, but native MMA would be preferred. That would lessen the learning curve for family for media usage maintained on MMW.
I couldn't agree more.

Yes it is still working on. Authorizations to get some app listed as compatible makes lots of delays.

Hi,
I would be glad to see that in MMA 2.0 but UI controls are limited, we will try to fill the blank space more efficiently.

Play controls work for me on Google Player for you?
When you are redisigning MediaMonkey for the shield TV/Android will the user interface be similar as the one thats running on a windows pc?
I have been looking for a media player for my ShieldTV but i havent found one that actually have the same user interface and full library view on he same screen.

I gave that a try yesterday and was surprised that it really worked well.
I will use that as a workaround, but would really like it better to use the standard shield remote.

Hi,
Have you tried to directly connect Generic USB Mouse (Usually even cheapest mouses are Generic HID devices)?

Thanks for the hints. Android 8 is unfortunately not yet available for the shield TV.
I have an touchpad app on my smartphone that I can control the shield TV with. That doen't help to access the home screen tiles.

Hi,
drunknmonkey you are describing the issues I had with Nexus Player while it was on Android TV 5.0 after upgrade to Android TV 8.0 Oreo many things improved and most things work now.

Also I bought Keyboard+Touch pad similar to https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00WQG6A8C?m= ... etail_page and after I enable External Virtual keyboard it works like a dream (mostly) even MMA is not yet optimized for TV usage.
