    HomePod Sonos One SL much better than HomePod Mini, or have I a bad one?

    I have an Apple TV in kitchen, that I mostly use for listening to music, sometimes radio via Broadcasts, sometimes Apple Music. For a year I had a Sonos One SL connected via airplay, I didn’t want the Alexa version because I don’t want Amazon listening in. It worked well and sounded well and was...

    AT&T TV for Apple TV

    I've noticed the AT&T TV app for Apple TV seems a lot more glitchy since recent updates were released. Navigation through the Guide, Watch Now, and My Library is really jittery, a strange combination of both under- and over-sensitive movement when being navigated with the touchscreen on both the...

    Disney Plus and Filmmaker Mode?

    While I can get Dolby Vision with Disney Plus on my Apple TV 4K, I’ve noticed that it doesn’t give me the option for filmmaker mode. Maybe this picture setting is reserved for purchased or rented movies, for example, as opposed to streaming content?

    We just found out our ceiling is being sheetrocked tomorrow and we are scrambling to finalize our sound system plans. Originally we thought we would buy some decent in-ceiling speakers and run some speaker wire over to the area where the cabinet that will house our TV and amp will be (and decide...

    MDM for Families?

    Is there an MDM solution that works well for families? I have 20 Apple devices in my home (and growing), supporting a family of five. Keeping all those devices updated and managed is a constant, often stressful undertaking. If it helps, I’m a registered Apple dev and am enrolled in Apple...

    Would My Apple TV 4K and LG CX OLED TV Benefit from an HDMI 2.1 Cable?

    I’m currently using an HDMI 2.0 cable. Would I benefit by upgrading to an HDMI 2.1 cable? As far as future proofing goes, I wonder if the next Apple TV hardware will take advantage of the HDMI 2.1 technology.

    Fitness+ Fitness+ on TV using iPad USB-C to HDMI?

    For those without an Apple TV but have an iPad with USB-C and want to experience Fitness+ on a big screen TV, does Apple "allow you" to mirror the display to a TV via HDMI? Is there some kind of HDCP protection that prevents this, presumably to force people to purchase Apple TVs?

    Harry Potter Cover Art Keeps Changing

    The cover art for all Harry Potter movies has changed two times in the last week. Do you think they’re honing in on an aesthetic they like? Not pictured is the latest cover art, which is similar to the first picture, but without the numbers. I personally liked the second batch (below). Also...

    HomeKit Apple TV in Scenes and Automations

    How? I want to make use of Scenes and/or Automations that include turning the Apple TV On or Off, i.e. waking it or sleeping it. However, I just don't see how I can do that.

    Since the release of TVOS14, anything I watch on the BBC iPlayer doesn’t seem to be logging in the UpNext function. Up Next doesn’t seem to realise I’ve watched a show. Is this happening with anyone else?
