A few tips & tricks for TKaraokeUSB owners to make the best use out of TKaraokeUSB.

1. When you connect a USB drive into your Android Box, it might take up to 30 seconds for Android to recognize. When it does recognize the new drive, it might display a "USB drive connected" screen. In this screen, you should just press the BACK button to cancel out of it.
2. To disable the "click sound" when navigating through the songs in TKaraokeUSB, go to Android Settings => Device => Sound and select Off.
3. To voice search in Vietnamese (instead of English), go to Android Settings => Preferences => Speech => Language and select Vietnamese
4. Voice Search will require connection to the Internet. This is how Gogole's voice search technology works, it needs to use an online server to compute the final result. As more people voice search, the result will be more accurate. This is called "self-learning algorithm"
5. When you add more songs to your hard drive, the preview image (i.e. thumbnail) might be off temporary due to caching. To fix this, in TKaraokeUSB, scroll to the last row and select Clear Cache. Also, select Delete Song Images and Hard Exit and start TKaraokeUSB again
6. The Play Mode can be changed via the Songbook app while playing. This make it possible to change the Play Mode w/o stopping the song to go to TKaraokeUSB's Settings = Play Mode
7. Although you can use a USB hub to connect your hard drive, your Android box will not be able to use multiple hard drives connected to the USB hub. It's recommended to connect your hard drive directly to the Android box.
8. With network drives, you can use multiple drives with TKaraokeUSB. Note that the ability to use network drives is currently only supported in Nvidia Shield. Supporting network drives on the MiBox might happen in future builds of TKaraokeUSB. For example, I shared one folder as "KaraokeSongs" that contains all my karaoke songs and another folder called "Movies" that holds all my movies. If you define tkaraoke.txt file for both of these shared folders, TKaraokeUSB will pickup all the files from both of these folders as if they are from the same hard drive
9. For best result, when voice searching using the MiBox, speaks directly at the tiny hole on top of the MiBox remote. This is where the microphone is so speaking directly to it is best
10. Although TKaraokeUSB can play VOB songs, it's recommended that you convert for VOB files to MKV using h.265 (HEVC) encoding. HEVC encoding takes advantage of your Android Box's GPU to improve playback and compatibility. I will release TKT to help convert your VOBs into MKV in just a few clicks with lossless audio
11. If you want to remove duplicate songs and decide to delete the duplicated songs with the smallest size, this might be a mistake. With VOBs, larger file size usually means high quality. However, with MKV, larger size doesn't mean higher quality. You should play both duplicate songs and keep the version with h.265 encoding. To tell the encoding of a song, use MediaInfo or look at the Info screen in TKaraokeUSB when playing that song. The encoding should be listed right next to the File Size
12. To improve performance, you should use a computer to generate all thumbnail images of your songs. Use TKT latest build to generate thumbnails for your entire collection in just a few clicks. See this page for more info.
13. You can activate voice search any time including when someone else is singing. Just press the microphone button on your remote once (do not hold it down, just press it) and wait about 1-2 seconds until the microphone icon turns red and speak directly at the remote. All matched songs will show up, scroll through using the LEFT / RIGHT button on your remote. To select a song from the result, highlight it and press the ACTION button on the remote. To close the results row, select the BACK button
14. You can change the volume using the UP / DOWN button on the remote (when the song is playing) or using the +.and - buttons on the Songbook app
15. On first use, your Android Box might default to a safe resolution. You should change the resolution to highest that your TV supports. For example, if you have a 4K TV, go to Android Settings => Display => Screen Resolution and select 4k2k-60Hz. If you have a 1080p TV, select 1080p-60Hz

You should be able to use it without Internet access. Voice Search will probably not work but the rest should work normally.

You don't need to configure anything, SB will auto discover TKaraoke if they are connected to the same network. This network doesn't need to have access to that Internet. Just like how your phone discover your AirPrint printers.

Your NVidia Shield should be running Android 7.0 already. What do you mean updated to 6.0?

https://www.theverge.com...-nvidia-shield-tv-update


Nvidia is today releasing version 6.0 of its software for the Shield TV set top box, which brings along the Google Assistant. First announced back at CES in January, Google Assistant on the Nvidia Shield TV allows for hands-free control of media playback, voice search, and smart home control. The Shield TV is the first Android TV device to get the full Google Assistant experience; Google says it will also come to Sony Bravia TVs with Android TV in the coming months.

Ah, you are talking about the Shield Experience 6.0. Mine is still on 5.x. I'll update to 6.0 and see what is going on.
