    I just went through my iTunes digital library with film titles starting with the letter “A” which totaled 74 titles. The following six titles didn’t have any audio codec listed even when I scrolled down.

    Aladdin
    Alien director’s cut
    Alien 3 special edition
    Alien Resurrection special edition
    Aliens special edition
    The Artist

    Angels & Demons listed Dolby Atmos when I scrolled down, but when played, it wasn’t in Dolby Atmos.

    Robert, that’s because none of those titles are available for sale anymore, so AppleTV hasn’t kept the specs up to date. The director’s cuts of the Alien movies are no longer sold as separates, but are now available in the “extras” in the theatrical versions.

    Double checked and there’s just one track that I can see: “English US”.

    Oddly, it appeared to be playing back in 5.1 now, while earlier it was definitely in 2.0. I’m at a loss to explain any of it.

    That's strange about "Aladdin" not being for sale on either Vudu or iTunes. Well, "The Artist" is still for sale on Vudu. It still doesn't explain the error I found on "Angels & Demons".

    I'm going through my entire iTunes library and document which titles have issues with audio codecs. It might take me a while because I'm not going to sit there for hours at a time doing it. It might be one letter a day.

    For TV, I always look at the Just Watch app to check what streaming services carry it. I wonder how 5.1 compares between iTunes & Netflix, Amazon Prime, etc for the same show.

    Any Beta users having difficulty with the TCM app? I can't seem to be able to log into my TCM app, as it keeps saying my TV Provider is not connected to TCM. All of my settings has DirecTV listed as my TV Provider and that it's showing "On" when I go to Accounts in settings. Furthermore, I'm not having this issue with my two other 4KATV units which are not Beta and don't have tvOS 13.0. I've tried Reset and Update with no improvement as it still gives me the same error message. I might try a Reset and Update again, but will turn off Beta Updates.

    Don’t run beta software if you need stuff to work. The recurring recommendation is to not run beta iOS or macOS because they’re really buggy and unstable this year. Seems reasonable to apply that to AppleTV too.

    I've tried to reset and stop it from being a Beta unit, but it still resets to the beta software. Anybody have any suggestions as to how I stop that?

    Anyone having issues with the Trailers app? Can’t get it to open.

    Tried everything. Restarting. Unplugging. Deleting app and redownloading. Still won’t open.

    If you're running tvOS 13 beta, the answer is yes yes yes yes and yes.

    This latest version is so buggy I can barely use it. The Trailers app is part of it, yes.

    Running a beta is voluntary, right?

    That problem sounds familiar to that same problem I'm having with the TCM app on my Beta unit.

    Yes, I wouldn't advise people of volunteering if you have the need to use your unit without having any issues. Luckily I have two other non-Beta units.

    Yes. It’s something to do if you like using buggy software and sending feedback to help it get better.

    If you are just looking for early access to new features, it’s risky. Reportedly, Apple released the public beta too early; it’s much too immature and data-destroying this year for all the normals that sign up just to get the new hotness three months early.

    Partially, I'm able to watch movies now on TCM app, but not all of them. For some reason Love in the Afternoon or Sabrina won't play, but I can play several other movies. Very strange!

    The Trailer app is still messed up as it backs me out every time I try to access it.
