Living Room perfection with NVIDIA SHIELD TV
October 30, 2017
For cord cutters like myself, TV entertainment has been dead for years. I bought a TV out of instinct; every living room I’ve seen has a couch and a TV. Netflix and YouTube lived on my lovely desktop monitors, which allowed for multitasking and not actually watching that video content. However, my living room life changed when I came across the Roku 3 box. This wonderful box allowed me to put the very same content up on the living room screen — but it was flawed. Clunky and a weak app ecosystem, it left me hungry for more. To satisfy the craving, I tried to eat an Apple. Their 4th generation Apple TV was almost perfect with their rich app ecosystem and slick interface. However, with 4K content finally available, I craved to eek out the best from my TV. I took a risk on the NVIDIA SHIELD TV — I was not disappointed.
Adding a Roku to a Logitech Harmony Remote

I got a Roku HD player from Woot.com recently and, as with any electronic device for displaying content on your television, it came with a remote. I have a refurbished Logitech Harmony 880 remote that I use to control all of my devices so after verifying that the Roku worked (and adding my Netflix, Amazon Video, and Flickr accounts to it), I decided to add it to my remote’s repertoire.
