Do you use an Nvidia Shield and have Tablo Engine or HDHomeRun for your DVR you may want to skip this week’s Nvidia Shield update. Both Tablo and HBHomeRun are warning of issues with the update and their DVR software. Again this only seems to apply to people who use the Nvidia Shield as their DVR for the HDHomeRun or the Tablo Engine.
Update: HDHomeRun posted that they have now started to push an update to their Google Play app that will fix the bugs introduced in the Nvidia Shield update this week.
Heads up: The Nvidia Android 8.0 update is causing issues with the Tablo ENGINE application. We recommend that you do NOT update for the time being. You can watch for updates here: https://t.co/JN5uAKu962

WARNING: Please do not update to Android 9 on your NVIDIA Shield if you are using it as an HDHomeRun DVR. It appears the update causes problems. We’ll inform you when we have a fix

Issues like this are very common with major updates like the won the Nvidia Shield had this week. Very likely in the next few days or weeks both applications will be updated to address the issues the new Android 9.0 updated created.
