    How do apps get updated on an ATV? I don’t see an update feature in the App Store. Maybe I missed it.

    Well, now it’s the PBS app doing it. Screen goes blank momentarily and the sound is also interrupted. There was a system update a couple of days ago, and maybe that fixed the CBS app. But now the PBS app is doing it. How do apps get updated? I don’t see any indication that the App Store...

    Any one having trouble with the CBS app? We’ll be watching a program and it will go blank though there’s still audio. This might last 2 or up to 5 seconds. It might happen once or it might frequent. I have noticed when I menu button up out of the program, the displayed screen is incomplete.

    Yes, absolutely. Take two of the greediest companies and let them merge, prices will go up.

    Why is getting an Apple ID a downside? Yeah, I didn’t hear the accent either. ;)

    It’s free and its icon looks like a movie ticket.

    I prefer using the iphone remote for the ATV. For me, it’s much better than the remote that comes with the ATV.

    Why would I want to jailbreak my ATV?

    Oh, you’re referring to the phone not the ATV. What kinds of customization do you refer to?

    Isn’t the reason for a jailbrake to enable loading of unauthorized apps? What’s the point in doing that?

    I imagine most of you use your phone as a remote instead of the pathetic little remote the ATV comes with. Is there a technique to ensure that the full remote screen pops up with a screen tap? After the initial activation, of course.

    Today I tried the Photos app on the ATV4K for the first time. It works and I can see my photos. It doesn’t appear to have much ability to manipulate the photos, notably, I’d like to zoom in on an area of an image. I’m using my iPhone X and don’t see any commands or buttons to zoom in. I’ve...

    Since my very first ATV years ago, the Trailers app has had issues. It used to freeze and buffer several times for each trailer. On my 4K it’s much better but still had some of those freezes.

    Running a beta is voluntary, right?

    I just tried your method and I love it. It works when using the iphone for streaming material. Thank you for pointing this out.

    I have found fast forwarding not to be as convenient as fast forwarding with my DirecTV DVR, which has a hard drive. I think the DVR is similar to your Infuse situation. That said, I did not know that a click on the right of the touch screen would fast forward 10 seconds, nor have I clicked...

    How does the Apple remote allow you to do that? I have found that advancing thru programs we are streaming to be cumbersome.

    I went to the apple store with my Apple TV and guess what? It worked. I had started a reset, per the tech on the phone, that couldn’t be completed because it wouldn’t connect to the internet. We completed that in the store. I brought it home and hooked it up this morning and the AppleTV...

    When my AppleTV and my phone will connect, I don’t use the remote at all. They recently made software changes that made the phone remote more accessible, i.e. wake the phone and it’s there.

    When my AppleTV works I love it but this experience has taught me that apple will fight tooth and nail to not replace the device when problems arise.

    The first tech told me to bring the power cable with me since he couldn’t guarantee the store would have one. So I called the apple store and that just got me back into tech support who gave me the hdmi bullshit. So it’s not possible to call the apple store. I was trying to avoid getting...

    I’m having WiFi connectivity problems with my AppleTV again. It finds my network but says incorrect password and it is correct. In fact, the password it’s using is the one it remembers. He had me do a factory reset, yeah I was thrilled about that. I get to the spot to enter the pw, I enter...

    In the past several days there has been an update for the better to the iphone remote. There are some superficial layout changes, but that’s not the biggie. It used to be that when my phone went to sleep, I had to activate and open the phone, swipe down from the right corner, and select the...

    I agree, different images. The ones going over London, Los Angeles, a beach, etc. Those must be taken using an aerial vehicle of some sort. The ones taken from the ISS are, of course, spectacular.

    I know satellites are capable of great resolution, but these images are just to crystal clear for a satellite. Think of all the atmosphere the camera would have to look thru.

    This is probably something everyone knows already but here goes. I’ve always been wowed by the 4K aerial screen savers. The detail and stunning locations are real eye candy. I’ve often wondered just where is that location? I tapped on the remote track pad, thinking that would wake up the 4K...

    I remember using some mouse shaped device from Radio Shack as a scanner for media. What was that thing called? Cue Cat?

    MyMovies has the scanner and it works very well.
