    Regarding Prime, my ATV 4Ks seem to be functioning fine and I'm getting HDR on S3 of Mrs. Maisel.

    The new iMac seems like a fairly significant upgrade.

    I believe it’s automatic.

    Prime started having trouble remembering where I am in a series recently, but otherwise it's working. I haven't tried any 4K recently. I'll have to give it a look.

    Well, there was just an update, so maybe it has a bug fix.

    Apple TV 4K official

    Lately I seem to have to restart my ATV 4K to get it to access some streaming services. It might only be Hulu, but I thought I had to do it for Prime as well. It just sits and the wheel spins when I try to access them. After a restart, it's fine. I'm having this happen with both units I...

    If you had a Gen3 ATV, it would be a slam dunk to get the 4K, but a Gen4 is a little less obvious. With all the crap going on, is there a new one coming? Or, will the current one drop more in price? I just know the 4K is awesome. I have two of them.

    Do you have a way of determining what frame rate it’s putting out with the two settings? I know the Marantz app shows it.

    Dave, what are you asking? Are you saying it looks good with "Match Frame Rate" enabled, but bad when it's disabled?

    Thanks Robert. That's really all the info I was hoping to get. This discussion is about what Atmos formats are available where with the ATV 4K. Just simple facts. There has been no discussion about who can hear a difference and what systems produce an audible difference. When I get a...

    I don’t get it either.

    Hasn’t @Robert Crawford stated iTunes movies stream through the Movies app in TrueHD Atmos? Is that correct, Robert.

    Dave, maybe you can clarify. I don't know if any streaming provides NetFlix or Prime with TrueHD Atmos. Has anyone been able to test other apps (not with the ATV 4K) and positively confirm any of them stream these services in TrueHD Atmos? Obviously, most people just assume that Atmos is...

    A dark little secret is that Atmos comes in two flavors. "Lossy" DD and "Lossless" TrueHD. Robert said he figured out a way to get his Marantz SR6013 to show him which it is, but I don't know if I can do the same with my SR7012. I do know I can check it with the AV7703 in my main system...

    The form of Atmos from NetFlix is DD quality, but I understand that Atmos from streamed iTunes is TrueHD quality. I can confirm that Atmos from NetFlix is NOT TrueHD, but I haven’t confirmed iTunes streams are. Robert says he has confirmed it, though.

    Who would have ever thought a screen saver could be a selling point, but it's freaking awesome.

    It might be a benefit for gaming, but I doubt there's any reason to upgrade from the current 4K for streaming.

    I always got dropouts back when I was streaming with a BR player. BTW, I didn’t realize you were in Canada.

    Why do people keep inflating the price they claim the AppleTV costs? BTW, if you are only streaming and not gaming, there is zero reason to get the 64GB model. The 32Gb model is $180 new and $150 for an Apple refurb.

    A few random thoughts on recent topics here. The Hulu app on the ATV4K in my HT had updated to the latest version, black with green text. I don't know why that didn't happen until several days after the other one. Comcast sometimes increases the speed you get, and they don't always even tell...

    I have Apps on both units set to update automatically, and both say the OS is up to date. So... no idea what the deal is. On a side note, last week I upgraded by internet from 75Mb/s to 500 Mb/s, with a 25% reduction in cost, and my streaming has never been so good. No surprise. Last year we...

    He's a weird thing that happened. After updating to OS 13, the Hulu app on the ATV 4K that's connected to a 4K TV updated to a new version, that has a black icon. The other one, that's connected to a 1080 TV is still green. I haven't double checked the versions on them, but both ATVs say...

    OK, so my take on the 4K remote, FWIW. I assumed it would go back in the white box, just like every previous aTV remote I'd ever owned did. Then I discovered it wasn't IR. Then I discovered it does things my Harmony can't. It did take some getting used to, because it's just different from...

    Well, I like the 4K remote. I have two remotes in the rooms, a Harmony and the 4K. With older ATVs, I always used the Harmony only.

    It’s definitely exactly the same with the ATV 4K. Hit to pause, then swipe right for ff and left for rew.
