You can buy an android version for your phone -- works great on your phone -- but it will just not install or work on the nvidia shield tv
Oh you can, but it's still not good due to the lack of control from the shield controller. I have it installed (sideloaded), and use Sideload Launcher to start it on the main screen. At least I can view the cameras, I just can't check recordings, or do anything useful with it.

I will ask Ken if this is on the roadmap for BI :idea:
Blue Iris v5.3.3.16 | Win10 x64 version 20H2 | Dahua IPC-HDW5231R-ZE, Foscam R2, Ertech 4MP, Neos2, 2 analogue cameras on Euresys Picolo Pro 2 | Intel i5-3330 CPU, 16GB Ram, Multiple SSD and HD | TVMosaic.

I have several android tv boxes and would love the ability to have an app that works correctly for viewing camera feeds on my tv’s. I have two shields and one nexus player.

Hi all,

I have a response from support:
For the Android TV app, what I would really like is for a customer/developer to step up to assist with this. Unfortunately I likely do not have time personally to complete this anytime soon, but I am offering to make the API open for this purpose, it's documented in the current Help PDF.
All we need now is to find somebody who can sort it out :!: Any volunteers :?:

With the new Chromecast with Google TV (based on Android TV), I was hoping to find a Blue Iris app. It would be great if there was one eventually.
