Can the Nvidia Shield remote be programmed to the Nevo C2? Thinking about upgrading to the shield but want to use my Nevo C2; thanks.

The Nvidia Shield will respond to IR commands. The file here: http://www.hifi-remote.com/forums/dload.php?action=file&file_id=14747 will work fine.

Depends on the model. Some lack IR. But a plug-in USB IR dongle will solve that.

Is the USB dongle the go between (literally) the shield and the nevo c2? How does it work?

The USB dongle plugs into the USB slot of the Shield and as far as the Shield is concerned, it acts just like a USB keyboard. Any remote can send IR to the dongle. The dongle is trained one time to emulate specific keys when it receives different IR commands.

Older models of the Shield received IR with nothing added. Newer models require a dongle. There are multiple brands, but here is one that I have experience with: https://flirc.tv/more/flirc-usb

EDIT: I should have mentioned: If you have a USB keyboard, either wired or wireless, you can check out what a remote can do for you. Connect the wire, or USB receiver for the keyboard to the USB slot of the Shield. Read the instructions for operating the Shield and try the keys on the keyboard. If you can do what you want with the keyboard, then you can program the FLIRC to send the same keys when it receives IR commands you teach it. The teaching process requires you to plug the FLIRC into your PC. After you have trained the FLIRC, the PC is no longer needed. Pllug the FLIRC into the Shield and you can now command the Shield from your remote.

I will also just mention that the HDMI-CEC on the Shield actually works pretty well. You may just be able to turn on HDMI-CEC and use your TV or Receiver to pass commands through.

I am actually now off IR completely and using my Shield + RF remotes with HDMI-CEC to control everything. Of course 'everything' is now a lot smaller group of devices than 5 years ago - just the Shield, Receiver, and TV/projector.

Will file work for the Nevo C2? Perhaps I'm missing vital information..... thanks

Yes, the file will cause the Nevo C2 to be able to send commands for the Nvidia Shield. The problem is - if your Shield is a recent model it will not receive commands from the Nevo or any other universal remote. That is the issue being addressed by all of our other responses. It can be made to work, with some effort.

Any that you buy new (not used) will need a dongle to work.
