How to Transfer Content to SHIELD

From a PC, you can access internal and attached storage on your SHIELD TV.

Using a USB type-A to type-A cable (not included in the box) you can connect your PC directly to your SHIELD TV:

  1. Enable Settings  > Device Preferences> Storage > Transfer files to a computer using USB
  2. Once you connect your PC to SHIELD TV, you will see your SHIELD TV available under your file manager under "SHIELD Android TV."
NOTE If you choose a refresh rate other than 60Hz, you will experience slow performance in applications that support 60Hz (Android TV home page, games, and 60Hz videos).
