I bit the bullet and dropped the $200 on the Shield Pro.
Holy MOLEY! What a game-changer and the graphics processing/upscaling is a big jump from the Firestick.

This is like the Tesla of streaming lol

We have done the same thing, now all that is used is the Nvidia Shield Pro.
Firesticks have been put away, and firecube has been packed away also.
The Shield pro streams way better but there is a learning curve to it and once you get that down the rest is easy to figure out. The youtube videos on it helped alot.

I HATE the remote though. The center button, you better be on the outside edge to toggle up/down/left/right because Select is too easy to hit. Fortunately my LG Magic Remote works everything once I get it powered up

You must have huge thumbs! We don't have any issues with the d-pad/select button. I still think the Firestick has the best overall remote of any of the major streaming devices. Roku is a close second, with demerits for putting the volume buttons on the side and, in my opinion, really bad compatibility with a variety of TV sets.

Going to have to look into that remote. Thanks for bringing it up as I have to agree the remote that comes with the shield is a bit tough to manage.
