MPEG2 Decode And Hardware Based De-Interlacing
HDHomeRun DVR Software Coming Soon
If you are wondering if the SHIELD supports MPEG2
decode and hardware based de-interlacing for OTA
digital TV other distributed media it does, but it isn’t
enabled by default.  To be 100% transparent with our
readers we found out that the MPEG2 hardware decode
was enabled in the press review build to allow editors to
test the HDHomerun TV tuner setup. The retail system
that goes on sale today will not initially have MPEG2
hardware decode enabled.  NVIDIA informed us that the
makers of the TV tuner box (Silicondust HDHomerun)
will be ...! releasing an app with DVR functionality sometime*
in June. Those that buy said TV tuning box and app will automatically be enabled with MPEG2 decode in hardware.
If NVIDIA were to include MPEG2 decode in hardware,
they would have had to pay licensing fees, and that would
increase the cost of the product for everyone. Not all of
the people that purchase the SHIELD Android TV have the
desire to use MPEG2, so NVIDIA tied the functionality to
the purchase of the HDHomerun tuner box as it sounds
like the licensing fee is built into the price of that particular
TV tuner.  NVIDIA told Legit Reviews that they are considering offering a codec pack on the App store for those that want
a wider variety of codec support in hardware, but there is
no release date available as the codec pack isn’t for certain.
