Don't have a complete answer for you, but I have heard that the tube version is 32-bit only where the rest are 64-bit.

I have the Shield TV from a few years ago. Not the first one (maybe 
 2017), but not the 2019 version.  It works great on streaming app and 
 leanfront and mythtv-frontend.
 I'm thinking up upgrading my wife's FireTV 4K to something faster.
 Does anyone know if those mythtv apps also work on the 2019 regular and 
 Pro versions of the Shield TV??

i run the Sheild pro 2019 as my primary FE and it's flawless. cannot fault it at all. as Jon said - the cheaper tube version is 32bit only and i think comes with less ram too. pro is 64bit.

I cant comment on 4k, as my AVR&TV are 1080p only.

my only gripe with the sheild is its 'android TV' rather than android so apps have to be explicitly built for the androidTV. Originally planed to replace my roku3 with it, but the UK NowTV app (which the other half uses a lot) isnt compatible with the shield.
