Zeno host USB drivers updated

His driver suite has the ability to enable this feature on many of our devices and therefore, allows the user to connect things like input devices and even external storage and media devices (yes, you can even attach a DVD drive to it). Now, he has released an update that addresses some compatibility issues with other software in the device. On top of that, he is looking into getting some compatibility for Android devices as well.

At the annual Game Developers Conference being held in San Francisco, NVIDIA announced the latest addition to its collection of devices, the NVIDIA SHIELD. Powered by the Tegra X1 ARM SoC, the SHIELD is a set-top box running Android TV at its heart. But since it is a NVIDIA device, it does things beyond the simple streaming and gaming that is expected in this age. The SHIELD can locally run and stream 4K content to a capable TV.
