Yup, grabbed it a few days ago.davilla wrote:Shield fw version 5.0.2 ?timstephens24 wrote:That's weird, I get passthrough with Kodi 17RC4 and SPMC 16.6.0 on both my Shield and Mi Box.
Two updates ago they backported some 'N' stuff, so that might be why it's showing as SDK 24 in Google Play? Not sure, but for the passthrough audio to work they needed to backport that part of N at least. They're working on the full update to N, and I'm hopeful it'll include auto-refresh rate switching (since that's really all the Mi Box is missing right now for me to really recommend it over the Shield). The Shield is definitely the better box right now since you get Amazon in 4K+HDR and Netflix in 4K+HDR.cosmoxl wrote:https://www.reddit.com/r/AndroidTV/ indicates the update is forthcoming.

oh boy. Mi Box is only $69. pretty sure i'm going to walmart now.
so it must be updated from the 6.0 it comes with to the new 7.0 to work?
edit: nevermind, Xiaomi isn't updating their boxes to Nougat yet from what I read.
I've decided to go with the Nividia Shield TV anyway, so no worries.
