    Yeah, Apple's setup method here can be quite confusing. It's counter-intuitive to turn off Dolby Vision in the setup menu when you actually want to watch things in DV. Apple and Sony engineers must hang out together at the bars sharing bad ideas on how to implement Dolby Vision.

    Got the two titles paid for and I am back in business! Will mess with the video output later. Still having issues selecting Dolby Vision 4K which shouldn't be happening.

    So no offense but this whole issue was because you didn’t pay for a purchase? Not Apples fault at all correct?

    I made the assumption that the transaction would happen quickly and they did not put it through for a few days for some reason so it caused a billing issue. But I have since take care of it and I keep an eye on my balance when buying digital content from now on.

    So far my Apple TV has been a very nice addition to my home theater and is working out nicely. Still doesn't mean I do not have concerns about digital content but it gives me more flexibility for content. Later on this year I am planning on adding some tv series and other movies. Over all I am very happy with my 4K Apple TV and I am also looking at getting Netflix back as well.

    I'm not sure where the proper thread would be to place this question, but I guess this is as good as any......

    Have any of you run into the Movies Anywhere App saying "This Device Does Not Support 4K Playback" with Apple TV 4K? This is the only app I have that is refusing to playback in 4K.

    I've not used that particular app much, but neither iTunes nor Vudu have Waterworld in 4K yet.

    I did notice that last night. However, it was when I was viewing my AppleTV with my HD-only projector, so I was assuming that it was because it didn't recognize a 4K display in the chain.

    Noob =)

    Seriously tho, sharing these collections is fun.

    To the question of the OP: As of last night we have a new winner. If you have not seen Apollo 11, fix that ASAP. It's the most amazing thing I've ever streamed

    I’m surprised to see “Drive” in there. I really like that movie, but it’s definitely not for everyone.

    I can only imagine the levels of shame @JohnRice would heap down on me if he saw either my Vudu or iTunes library. I mean we just did a long pod on shelf regret so -I- would shame me -)

    In comparison, @Dave Moritz collection looks significantly well curated and full of classics.

    I hope I'm not quite that bad. I looked through Dave's iTunes list, and there are 43 titles I own at least on BluRay. A few more on DVD, and a bunch more are on my server. Maybe the one that would surprise Sam the most is They Live, which I have always gotten a kick out of.

    Maybe I'll post a pic of my own collection, or at least the BluRays of movies, so Sam can pick on my snobishishness. Stuff is pretty scattered right now, because I ran out space a long time ago, and I'm in the middle of trying to reorganize. I don't own anywhere near as much stuff as a lot of other people here. I just have a lot of music in the mix, and it's kind of spread around. Movies are in one place, TV shows are in another, music is split between three places. I have far more music than video media.

    I wonder what my breakdown would be. All of my physical CDs are in storage - I have high quality rips of all the content that's kept locally - but I don't have a tracker app for the CDs since I started the ripping long before tracker apps were a thing.

    I think if I were to compare my collection of physical media movies to physical media albums, movies wins, but if it's between physical media movies vs all albums (digital and physical) combined, that'd be much, much closer.
