NVIDIA Shield display settings

you know on the shield in settings and display is defaulted at 4k HDR 59.9etc

should i change from that default settings to 4K HDR Ready 60Hz


Yes, default it to hdr4k60 if it allows you to. Sometimes, if it doesn’t, it’s generally related to a hdmi setting in your TV hdmi configuration menu that’s not set properly or you’re using a hdmi cord that may be bottlenecked to 1.4 or lower.

Go into your tv settings and see if there’s a hdmi enhanced mode that you can confirm or turn on for the input that your shield is connected to.

Actually I have mine set to the 3480X2160 59.940 Hz YUV 422 12-bit Rec. 2020 HDR10 Ready as when setting it up I found information that 60Hz is not what the streams are done in. I’d have to go back and find all that info again. But the above is what I set my Shield Pro to.
59.940 is exactly 2.5x the standard film framerate of 23.976. AFAIK if you run at exactly 60hz, you’ll get a single errant dropped/missed frame every x number of minutes when playing 23.976hz content that you won’t get if you run at 59.940.

Although I was kinda lost on what Miki was saying…I found this youtube video that seems to explain what Miki was saying, maybe.

Why is 59.940 Hz Recommended over 60 | NVIDIA GeForce Forums

“The reason to prefer 59.94 Hz is lot of content (NTSC television and many online videos) is still produced at that framerate or half of it.”

how do you get the stats on plex that your streaming at 23fps ?

In Tivimate while you are in full screen mode can click the “OK” button on your remote to see that info.
