    Happens to me on Hulu. I set up the subtitles and they work fine until each block of commercials, at which time the subtitles disappear and I have to keep resetting them.

    I can't provide a technical answer on that. However, there are two possible answers here... Your AirPods are communicating with the AT4K to provide spatial audio. It can't tell where your screen is located but it knows where your AT4k is located based on the chip it communicates with. That...

    This was not specific in the keynote, but I am assuming that since this is a software upgrade that both versions will support it. As I sat here typing this response I did some quick Google searches to see if this were true, and still found nothing specific to model. My concern is that this may...

    In case you missed today's keynote, SPATIAL AUDIO is coming to current Apple 4k TVs this fall via a software update. That's pretty amazing!

    This article is a good argument against upgrading from the current models https://appleinsider.com/articles/21/05/25/2021-apple-tv-4k-review-seeking-a-blockbuster-given-a-band-aid?utm_medium=rss&fbclid=IwAR0HONVVmNpLODrz7ubixHiYaEUHYkPO-LxiuCJ-cei6y-mPpvN_X_VzvOs

    I get it. Been there many times. I returned a Mac Mini I should never have bought within the return period a few months ago.

    Robert, just out of curiosity, outside of the new remote, how do these new units benefit you better than the AT4K units that have been out for the past two years? I am not criticizing your decision to buy them as we all have our own needs, however, even I had no incentive to upgrade my current...

    Right. If anyone in this thread has the "hook" that makes this an essential upgrade over the current model please let me know. The remote alone is not enough to get me to upgrade but I am interested to find out what has dramatically improved for my needs if I don't game on this device and...

    That's what I thought. So, another reason as to why I would need to upgrade over what I already own.

    Other than there being a new remote... As an owner of the AT4K that has been out for the past two years... How is this new AT4k better than the old that I would need to upgrade? Mind you, I don't game. I have a projector so I don't even know if that does Dolby Vision at the higher frame...

    I saw no need to upgrade from my current AT4K, but I must say, I hate the old remote. Hate it. Every day I select the wrong streaming service because the touchpad is extremely sensitive and often inaccurate. That new remote looks to be an incredible improvement.

    Do the current (not the newly announces) ATV4K units support Atmos for the new music service? I would think they would. Of course, if you are buying now, you would want the newer models

    Correct. I think we are overestimating how many people have home theater surround setups in their homes. We on HTF are in the minority. Most people have, at the most, soundbars on their display. Even someone like myself with an elaborate home theater that includes Atmos has televisions in...

    I agree. I like the convenience when I am in another room other than my home theater that doesn't have surround nor Atmos capability. These devices don't always just go into a home theater room and not everyone has such a room in their home. Apple should have picked up on this

    So, what I feel is the biggest "fail" of the new Apple 4k TV is the fact it does not support spatial audio --- which is a huge, huge surprise given that Apple has made several headphones that support it.
