Nvidia Shield Users - I have questions.

Recommended Posts

Ok, long story short.  I've been using an ODroid C2 to run Kodi with CV for the last 3 years.  My sequences trigger automations mostly through web calls to my SmartThings Hub (dim lights, change LEDs in soffit, etc...).  Been working perfect and haven't needed to touch anything (other than I switched to CoreELEC running Leia early this year).  Fast forward to today, I've cut the cable meaning the rest of my TV stuff in the theater (aka my TiVo) need to be replaced with an Android TV box.  My current thinking is getting a Shield Pro (or regular and add a little extra storage via microsd).  

So for anyone running Kodi on the Shield with CV (or Kodi in general for that matter), have you seen any limitations, issues with addons, themes that absolutely don't work, anything like that?  Second, is there any reason CV couldn't use the web calls from a Shield?  And last but not least, is anyone running the Plex for Kodi addon in the shield, and if so how does it compare to the Plex android app?  I hear rumors that the Kodi addon actually works better.

I've used a Shield with CV for the past few years, and it's handled everything I've thrown at it.  Web calls definitely work--I use SmartThings as well to control lights in my sequences.
