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...
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...
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.
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...
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.
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...
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.
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.
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.
