    I'd wager it's an HDMI cable issue. Is yours Premium Certified?

    It pays to be cautious if you own an OLED.

    So bizarre, Tino! It sounds to me as if it's something else in your equipment chain. As others have mentioned, if it was an Apple issue it would be more widespread, as it would if it was a Netflix/Vudu issue. I haven't read back through the entire thread, but have you tried moving the ATV4K to a...

    I got the free year of ATV+ when I bought my new ATV4K, because I'd never redeemed the offer before.

    tvOS 14.7 is in public beta at this time and hasn't seen a general release yet, so to get it you have to enable beta updates on your ATV4K: System -> Software Updates -> Get Beta Updates (On)

    One thing to consider is that if you plan on replacing Qobuz with Apple Music Lossless on macOS, there's no way to send the bitperfect digital data stream to an external DAC. Apple Music uses the OS to handle audio, and the only way to get it out of your Mac when using Apple Music is at a FIXED...

    It's probably just a matter of less/better compression on the Spectrum stream that you're getting over the Spectrum coax connection to your cable box, Carlo.

    It depends on what issue you're talking about Edwin. The labeling problems that Carlo uncovered were apparently within tvOS, since the recently released beta of tvOS 14.7 resolved them. The stereo audio problem with Hulu and the issues with HBO Max lie with the tvOS versions of those specific...

    Apple gives you free return shipping, so if you have to go that route it won't cost you anything extra. Out of curiosity, I picked up one of the new models and will set it up this afternoon to see what I can see.

    Try logging out of Store and iCloud, then log back in to force a refresh.

    First and foremost you need a Mac, which you don't have IIRC.

    That Xcode tool is nice to have for situations like this, isn't it?

    For those who are having issues, it would be worthwhile to upgrade tvOS on your ATV4K to 14.6, which was just released yesterday. That way if there IS a problem, at least you know you're testing with the latest version of the operating system. There's also the possibility that a silent fix has...

    The new remote is most definitely the hook here Ron. Other than that, like you, I see no real-world benefit of upgrading from the previous generation ATV4K. And really? If the old remote is that much of a chore to use, you can simply buy the new one if you don't mind dropping sixty bucks for it.

    No offense taken, Tony! :) As we found out previously, the TV app shows you the same playback info that the iTunes Movie app does. You just have to pause playback instead of swiping down from the top of the remote. So both apps are giving you the same info in the end. The Developer Mode HUD is...

    It's not that hard Robert. I'm SURE you could handle it! :) BTW, I'm an old dumbass as well. Just retired in January at 62, but I *did* spend 35 years working in the information technology profession, so I have a pretty deep tech background.

    Well, you were questioning why anyone with an ATV would use the app, which seemed weird. The two iTunes apps are preinstalled as well, but you're using them. ;) I don't have a problem with the way the TV app works. It's just fine. I was just wondering how Robert and Tino were getting playback...

    Robert, I was referring to those two apps eventually going away on TVOs. It has no relevance to whether or not you use a PC or a Mac. If you're talking about using XCode to enable Developer Mode on the ATV4K then yes, if you don't have a Mac you're SOL.

    Apple TV 4K official

    Uh, because the TV app is pre-installed on the device? Apple will most likely do away with the separate iTunes Movies and TV Shows apps on TVOs at some point, and the TV app will be it.

    Well, I've discovered that you CAN still use Developer Mode with TVOs 14.x. You'll need a Mac, and you'll have to install the latest beta version of Apple's XCode app. Once you do, you pair your Mac with your ATV4K via XCode, and you'll see Developer mode (with its detailed HUD toggle) available...

    Thanks Robert. All I get is: Chapters - Subtitles - Audio. This is swiping down on the ATV remote while playing back a movie I purchased via iTunes from the TV app:

    All right, dumb question here. How the heck are you guys getting video playback details by swiping down on your ATV4K remote? All I get is audio options. I used to be able to get playback info via Developer Mode, but Apple disabled that for consumers with, I believe, the release of TVOs 14.

    Have you tried just killing the TV Shows app, Scott?
