    Apple TV 4K official

    IF hi-res lossless support (and/or gapless Atmos/spatial-audio playback) will be added w/ the release of a new ATV4K (of whatever actual hardware specs), given Apple's track record, I would think it's more likely they just want the software enhancement to be done/released as part of a bigger...

    Apple TV 4K official

    I haven't been using my ATV4Kv2 to stream music other than a little bit a good while back. Wasn't aware there's any issue of not supporting hi-res lossless. IF it's an issue, I'd think this should be addressed via software update, no? Don't see why there needs to be another hardware update...

    So glad that most series-on-disc sets come w/ Vudu DCs, instead of iTunes (though some used to be w/ both), if they come w/ any DCs at all, including that Batman: The Animated Series set, which I did finally buy late last spring (while enough available disc sets were still including the DCs even...

    That sounds like it'd be very annoying, especially since they apparently don't (always?) break down series purchased as complete sets into separate seasons for easier access (based on what some recently mentioned about at least some of those complete sets, especially the Star Trek ones). I was...

    What do you mean? Are you talking about the couple-second-or-so blackout between programming (or pauses) that occurs (almost) everytime you stop and (re)start, etc? IF so, that's probably caused by the HDMI resynching that happens whenever there's a format/framerate switch, which can happen...

    Apple TV 4K official

    That's basically what was just (re)discussed (and reaffirmed for the most part) again... :lol: Basically, not too important which you choose as long as it's 4K and you make sure to choose to "match frame rate" and "match dynamic range" in the other related settings... Most of us prefer to set...

    Ummm... That's very old news... :lol: and they might even be quietly walking that back a little bit AFAIK -- that at least seems to be the case if you ever run into problems getting the free upgrade and contact their CSR about it anyway... _Man_

    Hmmm... but are you currently actually logged into the ID that owns the library? IF not, that would probably explain why you can't access the library (especially after removing family sharing)... although that still wouldn't explain why the diff between the ATV app and (iTunes) Movie app (on...

    Apple TV 4K official

    That is odd... Hmmm... since you mention family sharing, are you somehow maybe logged into a different Apple ID (that's part of your "family sharing" group) than before? Maybe doublecheck your Settings app --> Users and Accounts section and see that everything's in order -- even if you didn't...

    Not sure that's what Crawdaddy's saying. IIRC, he had an issue w/ a new ATV4K w/ the ATV app not showing anything in his library, and sounds like it might have never been resolved. AFAIK, other than whatever bugs (and maybe extra little features of ATV4K), the ATV app works the same across all...

    Thing is his other methods of access seem fine... and this is happening in his parents' home too (although I suppose they might use the same ISP). Doesn't seem likely isolated to his ISP (throttling only Netflix/Vudu access) or it'd likely impact a whole lot of NYers (and his other methods of...

    Apple TV 4K official

    @Tino, have you tried a complete factory reset and then set it up directly connected to your LG 4K TV (before eventually moving back into the full HT system)? Maybe also have the Netflix app removed (perhaps before the reset) and reinstalled (after the reset). No idea, but maybe some...

    Hmmm... I didn't even think to install CheapCharts on my ATV4K... Of course, not so useful unless I actually create a CheapCharts account so I can access the same user info (currently only on my phone) between multiple devices... :P _Man_

    Apple TV 4K official

    Yeah, unfortunately, it's not just new customer, but new household/family, if shared. I might try doing it w/ a different account that's not linked to the family (just for my new ATV4K) and see if that works -- no big deal, if not, since we'll probably be doing the Apple One family deal...

    Apple TV 4K official

    If I understand correctly, it still needs a reference point... and I'd think the visual presentation should be used for that purpose... at least for video source content anyway (vs audio only)... On an iPad, iPhone, MB(P), etc, the visual is generally directly in front and very close by... and...

    Hmmm... guess I may end up switching from Qobuz to Apple Music then... Like that the Apple Music Family subs only costs as much as the regular, single-user Qobuz subs (although Qobuz actually seems to allow more than one user/device to stream simultaneously)... _Man_

    Apple TV 4K official

    Shouldn't it be based on where your display is located (relative to you... and maybe its size relative to your field-of-view as well?), not really the ATV4K's location? No idea how they plan to work that out (particularly for simple and elegant method), but I'd think it should be doable --...

    Maybe it's some issue w/ how the ATV4K handles diffs like true 60fps vs 59.94. I recall reading about some issue w/ that a while back, but forget the details now... And yeah, that would be annoying if (still?) so even though I don't really care quite that much about Netflix and Amazon...

    Sounds like some folks might finally have their "must have" reason... and so the plot thickens... :lol: ... though no idea why Apple seems to not have made the same fix for the old ATV4K... _Man_

    Apple TV 4K official

    Those are your settings? I wonder if that's not part of the problem for the new ATV4K... as I wouldn't think you should want/need it set to SDR... unless there was actually a bug/flaw in the old ATV4K (or old version of tvOS) that made it work better that way... Also, I wouldn't think it makes...

    Really? That would seem so anti-Apple if so... and certainly like rubbing salt in your wound me thinks... _Man_

    THIS (along w/ outsourcing to China) is probably largely why Apple's margins are so good, and they're sitting on so much cash they don't need to go into major debt to finance AppleTV+ endeavors and such (so far), LOL... I hear yah... and the hype surrounding Apple has won them so many such...

    BTW, with stuff like these, who needs real conspiracies, LOL??? Wonder when we'll get a dystopian sci-fi movie premised on something like this... Can you imagine if the next Terminator or Matrix sequel (or Alien prequel!!!) actually explains that's how it all began, LOL??? _Man_

    I suppose "God is dead" at Apple nowadays, but where are their editors though? That's what QC's for, no? And if QC lets down, they usually have their PR machine(s) to cover, no? But we're not even getting anything yet from their PR machines, LOL. We're basically getting just you ;) (and...

    Sadly, it could be even simpler than that. It could simply be how the different ATV devices identify themselves (or perhaps, their capabilities) to apps to let them know what to stream, how to label stuff, etc etc. And yes, as a developer who has seen such too much in the IT world, it's quite...

    Does Apple do any meaningful QC anymore? And this despite taking forever to come out w/ this long expected iteration of the STB? They should at least test the few most popular apps/services, eg. Netflix, to make sure something like this doesn't happen... or at least be able to let customers...

    A (very?) few of us never actually had the original ATV4K... :lol: while some others wanted more(?)... I'm not exactly rushing out the door down to the nearby (enough) Apple Store to get one (just yet). Still waiting on B&H to deliver... for now (and save the equiv of NYC sales tax plus the...

    Is that just supposed to be sarcasm or am I missing something about Apple's spatial audio? I haven't been following enough to be sure... :lol: I guess spatial audio can actually be used w/ stereo speaker (and/or maybe 2.1 or 3.1?) setup then? _Man_

    Don't tempt me, LOL -- there's an Apple Store w/in 25-30min walk from me in Downtown Brooklyn... and I actually momentarily considered the modest detour yesterday evening on my semi-regular, long-ish walk outside... :lol: _Man_
