    To confirm it doesn't support, check here: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT212183 - specifically this bullet point under how to play lossless for Apple TV: You would *think* it wouldn't be hard to implement HRL on ATV4K. Just like you'd think they could implement gapless playback on...

    I hesitate to even post this because Kuo has such a mixed track record. But given how: I'm now experience the Atmos/Netflix issue Have a long-standing beef with Apple's implementation of Atmos/Spatial music on ATV (first second is always missing on initial play, gapless playback is not...

    Well after a year or so of owning ATV4Kv2...for whatever reason the dreaded "random glitch/dropouts" of the Atmos signal on Netflix just crept up. Maybe I've always had it and just never noticed because I haven't watched much Atmos on Netflix on my ATV. First there's not a ton of content that I...

    Back on page 69-70 when I was untangling all of the labeling issues by utilizing the XCode Dev HUD to show that I was actually getting a 4K (and DV when appropriate) stream when the swipe-down menus either incorrectly labeled it as HD (Netflix) or didn't support resolution labeling at all...

    This probably won't help Tino in the slightest, but the devs just got a new beta build of tvOS15 so usually the public beta isn't far behind.

    @TonyD Here is my post on page 68: https://www.hometheaterforum.com/community/threads/apple-tv-4k-official.354146/post-4998950 That's where I downloaded XCode and enabled the HUD. All the gory details on how to tell if you're truly getting and displaying 4K content (vs just trusting what the...

    Quite a few pages back I had posted instructions on how to enable the developer HUD in the ATV (requires a Mac with XCode connected to it). This then tells you the stream you're 1) receiving from your source, and 2) outputting to your TV. The original problem that many suffered from was that...

    What do you mean nope? No that they wouldn’t do it or no that the HUD couldn’t be enabled? If the latter then something may be seriously wrong with your atv. Like broken, wrong.

    Honestly at this point, the only solution is to find someone in your life (friend, family member, acquaintance you can bribe) who has a Mac laptop who could download XCode and enable the HUD. If we weren't 3000 miles apart hell I'd do it just to get to the bottom of this mystery lol.

    At this point I don't know what to say, Tino. I don't have my ear as close to the ground for problems anymore due to the fact that other than the gapless audio playback for Atmos/High Res Lossless from Apple Music, mine seem to be working perfectly for the services I use. I did pop in to the...

    I'm not an app dev so I won't explain this perfectly. But essentially Apple TV has a default player for video. Think of it as "Windows Media Player" for Microsoft. So let's say you have a streaming video service and the content is on your servers and you want to create an app for tvOS that...

    Also to temper my Spatial Audio / Atmos enthusiasm, it's not all sunshine and roses on that front. I've submitted feedback to Apple to try and fix this. I have confirmed this only happens on my AppleTV Music App, playing my Apple Music subscription Atmos tracks. It does not happen to Lossless...

    Yeah it's not about me trying to assign anyone blame (as I said I hold no shares of Apple or HBO so I don't really care who takes it on the chin). I'm just about trying to help troubleshoot where the problem lies. HBO literally issued 3 updates in 5 days that caused and [sort of] fixed this...

    Just to be clear, the recent HBO Max debacle was resident in the HBO Max app itself, not in tvOS.

    Good mea culpa by HBO Max. If you haven't updated your app, do so. It does restore the functionality of Apple's native player.

    Here’s how much of a game changer this is for music lovers. I had planned on screening the Indy 4K films when I wrapped up work. Instead I’m sitting here listening to Atmos music. I realize we live in a world that doesn’t value music like in the olden days. But for those who still find passion...

    Apple just dropped a huge a$$ gauntlet for music lovers. I remember deciding I only wanted to subscribe to one service. Spotify is the market leader in users. Tidal was the high def game in town. But I went with Apple Music primarily because I was already in their ecosystem and looked with...

    Lol I just realized your post was a link Sam, and clicking it made my phone launch exactly the album that I just screencapped, with Apple lossless, digital master and Atmos

    Holy crap, Dudamel directing the LA Philharmonic on Mahler's Symphony No. 8 in Atmos is...amazing.

    Spatial audio is now a thing in Apple Music, and my Apple TV 4k. I'm listening to Alone Again by the Weeknd and the Atmos flag is on in my receiver.

    Thanks for that, could definitely be the case. The only slightly annoying thing (and again I'd never know if I wasn't switching back and forth) is that the stream seems to be maybe 30 seconds behind the live broadcast. Not a big deal on programmatic television, but for sports...I'd really hate...

    I figured I would ask this here in the master ATV4K thread instead of starting a new thread. Question: For those who have not yet cut your cable cords Have you downloaded and run your cable provider's Apple TV app (if they make one)? Have you used it? What do you think of it? Here's why I am...

    I mean I'd never advocate keeping something you're unhappy with, especially since we can't confirm with the Dev HUD that you're receiving what you're supposed to be receiving. The lack of Atmos label on your receiver is really concerning to me. That said, in the other forums I've posted on this...

    No worries. I would check your Netflix account just to re-confirm they're still sending you UltraHD service. I will say I'm in a couple of forums where I've raised this issue, and you're the first one where the new build hasn't changed the result.

    re: the Dev HUD, it requires a Mac on the same network, and XCode to be on that Mac. It's not a difficult step but it is a large program that takes a while to install. It's about 11GB but since it's a dev tool, even on my 2019 Macbook Pro which is spec'd out pretty nicely still took about 45...

    Absolutely. Are you able to enable the Dev HUD? I'm curious what stream you're getting from Netflix. I have never used Vudu so I can't speak at all to that app. Another wonky thing from Netflix, notice how my "network bandwidth" setting is in the 70Mbps range? It's always like that while...
