Can my Nvidia Shield Remote switch inputs for devices like the Nintendo Switch?

Yes, the Nvidia Shield Remote can switch inputs for devices like the Nintendo Switch, but it depends on your TV and settings.

Here are a few ways to do it:

  • You can set up the Shield Remote to use infrared (IR) commands to control your TV. Just go to Settings -> Display & Sound -> Volume Control or Power Control. You can also customize the remote buttons using an app like “Button Mapper”.
  • HDMI-CEC is another option, allowing devices to communicate through the HDMI cable. If your TV and Switch support HDMI-CEC, turning on the Switch will automatically switch the input to it. To return to the Shield, use the Shield Remote to wake it up.
  • Press and hold the menu button on the Shield Remote (or another mapped button) to bring up the input list on your TV. Use the same button to cycle through inputs and choose the one you want.

I hope this information helps you enjoy your Nvidia Shield and Nintendo Switch.

Have a great time!
