Right click on the computer speakers that are showing and it should give you an option to 'show disconnected devices.
You're better off buying the full version with the gamepad and either keeping it just in case you ever want to dabble with games either selling it on e Bay for more than $20. NVIDIA is pitting this SHIELD TV (with remote) version as a streaming box and has provided a nice comparison sheet against similar options like the new Apple TV, Roku Ultra, and Fire TV.
You can clearly see that NVIDIA provides the most versatility (unless you care about i Tunes), but then again, if you're convinced, I'd still recommend the fuller $199.99 option with the gamepad.
While the idea makes sense on paper for those who just want it for its media chops, the price leaves me very puzzled.
NVIDIA is pricing this at $179.99, only $20 less than the version that comes with the controller, which costs $60 by itself. At $149.99 or even $159.99, it would be a valid argument, but at $179.99?
UPDATE: The vmware runtime fix shown here has not worked since version 12.5.6, and the solution is in a later article:
p=1992 I have recently updated one crash-and-burn system to Fedora 26 (alpha/testing) and have encountered two problems with VMware and the ‘bleeding edge’ version of GCC included.. The second problem was with the ‘automated’ compilation of the VMware modules, and none of the usual methods worked.Update Star has been tested to meet all of the technical requirements to be compatible with Windows 10, 8.1, Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2003, 2008, and Windows XP, 32 bit and 64 bit editions.Simply double-click the downloaded file to install it.You should see a pop up window with a list of audio output devices.Your TV should be listed as somethign along the lines of "HDMI Output" (if you have an AMD graphics card in your pc then its probably listed as AMD HDMI Output, i only have AMD cards so i cant check what it sais for other brands).If my advice rings on deaf ears and you'd still like to purchase a SHIELD TV (with remote), you can pre-order it on NVIDIA's site at the source links below. Or you know, you can avoid the wait and grab the better 9.99 option and have it shipped now.
