    Apple TV 4K official

    That was going to be the next thing to try.

    Apple TV 4K official

    That was way harder and more complex than it should have been. Definitely not the aTV’s fault. But it needed cables and deep-menu settings on two devices and multiple tests and unintuitive settings on the aTV. But, is working. So next opportunity I can try out some DV content from my HTPC and...

    Also: 4K SDR with Match Content and 4:4:4 Chroma 4K HDR and the screen brightness is boosted 4K Dolby Vision and the screen brightness is boosted (maybe more) and match content is disabled. It appears the right format for all-purpose is 4K SDR with Match Content (Range & Frame Rate). But you...

    Apple TV 4K official

    And now it’s working. I was checking the Sony TV settings — HDMI has to be set for Enhanced as well. It was, but I turned on Enhanced for all inputs, and now it works. I don’t know how/why but I have access to all the things.

    Just found and did that. Tried Enhanced and 8K Enhanced. Doesnt work. Tried switching to 4K SDR, but that didn’t enable DV either.

    Can’t do 4:2:2 Chroma either.

    Apple TV 4K official

    I can‘t get Dolby Vision to work on my appletv. I’ve got brand new 8K mono price hdmi cables connectin 4K appletv to Denon 760 to Sony 950H. I‘m going into one of the Denon 8K ports (a late discovery). But it won’t enable. I’m at a loss. I don’t care much but I’ve now spent an extra $30 on...

    Apple TV 4K official

    Pretty sure all AV limitations of Apple TV are self inflicted. The hardware is super capable. It could be the ultimate box to meet the dreams of all mainstream and niche enthusiasts. But Apple doesn’t care. So I own both an Nvidia Shield for HTPC use, and AppleTV for subscription streaming.

    That would be a little annoying since I just bought two 4K Apple TV the past six months. :)

    ^ ugh Apple cloud Services mostly work except when they don’t and then they’re inscrutable (iCloud safari tabs still drive me bonkers.)

    It’s been a week. :) I’ll get it sorted eventually.

    Apple TV 4K official

    I looked at the three pack. But I just need the one… well, maybe I goofed. I might need two. I don’t need to replace all cables. I only have one true 4k sequence currently: This one AppleTV to Denon 760 to Sony 950H. Everything else is still HD in some manner. But in think I forgot I need a 4K...

    “Screen maintenance”? What’s that?

    Apple TV 4K official

    When I get my cable and can do DV, I’ll do some fiddling to see what’s what, as of 2022.

    Apple TV 4K official

    Yep. So after a futile search, I gave up and asked for the nth time. :)

    Apple TV 4K official

    Short answer, no. Long answer, some UST projectors with integrated screens are licensing DV. And there are also arcane tech tricks one can play to get DV data to a projector that some enthusiasts say works great.

    Everytime because no one can find it lost in this thread’s conversation a year ago. :) Should probably be a sticky with first post edited to hold the key info.

    Thanks. DV isn’t important for me — living room TV — but I want to try out DV to know what I’m missing in the HD projector room. :) It will also let me see if my HTPC supports HDR and DV.

    Ok. I turned on match frame rate and dynamic range. Anyone ever figure out why you don’t turn on DV to get DV? This makes no sense and counter-intuitive. I was turning it on, stopped only by ancient cable.

    Gotta be the cable. It’s a Blue Jeans HDMI cable I likely bought in 2009. Ordered a new “8K” HDMI cable to plug in tonight.

    Is this still recommended setup? (Assuming my system supports DV, once i get new cable hopefully.)

    4K aTV on 4K TV. Now I have to find the magic settings to make it do HDR and DV without screwing up everything else. Also maybe a new cable because it won’t let me turn on DV.

    I haven’t read that anywhere, though I’ve not been up on tech news this week and could have missed it. And I don’t have Netflix currently so can’t check directly. Would be nice.

    AppleTV 4K on sale this morning for $150 this morning, and I got the email in time, so ordered it. This will replace the HD unit connected to my 4K TV in the living room. I’ll finally have 4K streaming on one display in the house!

    The apps (Netflix, Prime, Hulu, Disney, Paramount, HBO) are identical across LG, Sony Google, and AppleTV in my use. I use LG‘s apps for my bedroom TV. Apps work well, and easier than having two remotes for TV and ATV in bedroom. I’ve literally, as of yesterday, switched from AppleTV to Sony...

    1st gen aTV: is that steam powered? Or run off vacuum tubes? I legit thought it wasn’t supported anymore. Haven’t had screen blanking problems with 4th gen and 5th gen Apple TV’s. Sounds like video hardware is dying — HDMI syncing errors — in the aTV or in the box it’s connected to.

    Apple TV 4K official

    AppleTV 4K ordered for theater. Need a second one for living room, but living room also needs 4K AVR, so no rush yet.
