    Apple TV 4K official

    I have a couple of older apps that might stop working on some newer iOS. Automatic updates could make those apps reach EOL before I'm ready. Mark

    Apple TV 4K official

    Apple released TVOS 12.4.1 today (and iOS 12.4.1 too). Wouldn't you know it, I just updated my infrequently used iPad Mini (only use it with my Mavic Pro drone) to iOS 12.4 just last night. Now I'll have a new round of nag nag nag from Apple to get me to update. I HATE that we can't...

    Apple TV 4K official

    A friend recently purchased an Apple TV 4K. He is generally an Apple fan but, previously, just couldn't justify $150 for an Apple TV when Rokus were $50. So he owned a couple different Roku models over the last few years. Recently (for a reason unknown to me), he decided to give the Apple TV...

    Sorry to add nauseam to your day, Mark. :) Since my post, I've researched the issue and you are, of course, correct. Apple clarified it to High Def Digest back in October (see update at the end of this article): https://hdgear.highdefdigest.com/52427/moviesanywhere.html This is something...

    Apple TV 4K official

    I found another title on my Apple TV 4K that shows I own the 4K version but it plays in standard HD and without any sort of of HDR: The Dark Knight I've sent a Feedback report to the Apple TV team. I suspect there are other titles with this problem. I guess I'm going to have to go one by one...

    For those that are planning to buy 'Only the Brave' on standard Blu-ray, be aware that its HD digital copy code (which I redeemed at Movies Anywhere) shows up as 4K Dolby Vision on Apple TV 4K! Sweet! If you aren't planning to buy 'Only the Brave', stop now and reconsider your decision! :)...

    Apple released the non-beta version of tvOS 11.2 this morning. All 4th generation Apple TV and Apple TV 4K (5th generation) owners should be able to download and install the 11.2 update at their leisure. If you have automatic software updates turned on, the Apple TV should update on its own...

    Apple TV 4K official

    I signed up for the public beta and was able to update to tvOS 11.2. The automatic SDR/HDR switching seems to work perfectly. Menus are still in HDR (including the Hulu app, I haven't tried others) but the moment I start playing non HDR content the Apple TV switches to SDR output. Not sure...

    I sent feedback to Apple to ask them to fix the lack of switching between SDR and HDR modes based on content. I can manually switch my Apple TV 4K to SDR mode but then HDR content is in SDR. Dumb! Mark

    Apple TV 4K official

    My Apple TV 4K is working fine with my 940E. I have it set to 4K HDR at 60Hz. Chroma is set to 4:2:2. It is connected to my Pioneer A/V receiver which is connected to HDMI port #2 on the Sony 940E. My only complaint is the Apple TV is in HDR mode even when watching SDR content. That leaves...
