Nvidia Shield

Control your Nvidia Shield via Bluetooth (BLE), trackpad and keyboard

Nvidia Shield TV (2015) and Nvidia Shield TV (2017) can now be controlled via Bluetooth (BLE). This integration includes two great features. Smart Remote's trackpad feature makes it incredibly easy to browse and navigate. You can also use a nifty keyboard feature for searching (yes, you can finally say goodbye to spelling things out letter by letter on your TV screen).
