Plex Update ANdroid TV


Distinguished Member
Noticed today on my phone PLex is showing DTS/HD passtrhough support for Android TV, this is interesting and now I juts need to find a android TV box . I believe the Amilogic s812 chipset does H265 is that right and the one to look out for? Any suggestions on a good legit Android box with this chipset ?

Android TV, so won't work on a generic android box.

Get an Nvidia Shield TV or Nexus Player, or a Sony TV. Don't think there are many other options.

ok didn't realize that but I thought maybe you could use a generic android box perhaps with a custom rom . I would buy the shield TV as soon as its got HD audio from Plex or Kodi as my NUC running openelec quite often locks up when playing video
