Nvidia has announced that the Nvidia recovers Oreo update, that is, Nvidia Shield TV Experience Update 7.0, based on Android 8.0, is being withdrawn due to a ‘number of problems’. The update has been released since last week, but now owners have to wait a bit longer for the new functions.

Nvidia recovers Oreo update

Since last week manufacturer Nvidia rolled the Nvidia Shield TV Experience Update 7.0based on Android 8.0, for the popular media player, but now it appears that some problems have surfaced. The tech support has left the following on the GeForce forum:

Hi All

We’ve uncovered a couple issues thanks to feedback from our preview program that we’d like to fix prior to rolling out SHIELD TV Experience Upgrade 7.0 to more users. We are actively working to resolve the issues that have been encountered and we hope to start the rollout shortly.

We appreciate your patience and make sure you have the best experience possible. Stay tuned and we’ll provide updates as we have them.

Unfortunately, it does not explain exactly what kind of problems have been discovered. It could be that there are problems with the wireless internet connection, as some users report that the Wi-Fi sometimes fails. That makes content streaming difficult. There are also complaints about the new launcher (cumbersome shutdown method, goalless YouTube channels), but that has to do with the Oreo update. Nvidia can not fix these problems quickly, that is the job for Google.
