New power controls and bug fixes  

Nvidia Shield TV received another Android TV update which bought new power controls and bug fixes to the company's streaming telly product.

Shield Experience 9.1.1 is rolling out to all Shield TV devices -- we got ours last night. To be fair we didn't notice much, but Nvidia assures us that there is a new power control option that allows the Shield to wake when the TV input is changed to the Shield input.

New Dolby Vision controls have been added to the developer options, and Nvidia says it has reorganised and cleaned up that menu as well.

There’s an update to the Shield TV app on Android phones which fixes an issue that prevented the app from launching properly on Samsung Galaxy devices.
