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

    This happens to me occasionally when I use the TV app. The Movies app never has this problem on my system.

    I would assume that the Atmos limitation in Netflix is due to the app and/or source.

    One thing the remote has that the app will never have - hard buttons. For me, that's an important feature, because I can operate the remote one-handed without looking down at it. Can't do that with an app on a touchscreen device.

    HIGHLY doubtful that there will be an ATV4K refresh this year IMO.

    Well, from a personal perspective, I can tell you that based on my experiences with HBO Go, I would never subscribe to any HBO service for anything other than what I'm doing now - to watch a single program. They've lost me as a regular customer. Probably not enough of a blow to make them move...

    True enough, Josh. Since we have no idea what HBO's network topology, data distribution, or scaling capabilities are like, all could be a factor for something that's in such high demand. Perhaps the company should consider spending some of the $1 BILLION the show makes each year to beef up their...

    This is good information Carlos, but as I've mentioned previously, I have 80Mbps broadband and HBO Go is the ONLY app on my ATV4K that delivers such poor quality video. Literally the only one. It's practically unwatchable. Everything else looks fantastic, with the exception of the occasional...

    Do you really think that millions of people were "watching the same file"? They weren't. HBO's streaming quality is just terrible. The only time I've ever used their Go app is to watch Season 7 and Season 8 of GoT, and it's been this bad all along.

    I can't speak for Infinity War, since I only own it on disc, but Spider-Verse has Atmos audio in iTunes. Don't know about the MA app, but if a title is available in your MA account it's available to you in iTunes as well.

    DVD Profiler has a mobile app that works great on iOS.

    Thanks Robert. Nope, I was browsing the sale in the iTunes app on my MacBook Pro.

    I do not own them on iTunes Robert. I double-checked and the only way I can purchase them on iTunes in 4K is individually. All of the Bond bundles are showing as available only in SD and HD for me.

    Thanks for the heads-up Tino. Unfortunately, I can only find the Bond bundles in SD/HD. The 4K titles only show as individually available for me.

    Good to know Robert. I've never tried to redeem an expired code. I should give it a try! Maybe they're like those Bed, Bath & Beyond coupons? ;)

    You might be in for an unpleasant surprise Tony. Most digital codes have an expiration date.

    That was it. Match Content MUST be set to "Range and Frame Rate" in order to enable DV playback. It's all good now. Thanks for the info Robert!!

    Thanks Sam. The trick is to have Content Matching set to "Range and Frame Rate". Got it working now.

    All of my HDMI cables are Premium Certified from the same manufacturer (SPC), but I swapped it anyway when I tested the direct connection to the TV. No dice.
