    AppleTV library art (portrait movie poster) BUG

    Movies that once had beautiful landscape-oriented poster art in the library are having their artwork replaced with portrait-style. The weird thing is, that when viewing the movies from a family member phone, all the cover art looks right. This is most annoying when so much money is spend on...

    Sharing Apple One subscription on AppleTV among users that use different countries’ App Stores

    As the default AppleTV user, my Apple ID uses the US App Store for iCloud and purchases. I added an additional user to the AppleTV, but she uses the Japanese App Store for iCloud and purchases. Therefore, I cannot add her to my Family Sharing group to share my Apple One subscription. I want...

    New Apple TV Remote Mute Button…

    Who asked for this stupid mute button… and right in the same place where you’ve been trained to press play/pause all these years… so annoying… if I wanted the sound to stop I’d hit pause… I can think of far more useful buttons if they were gonna add stuff….

    iPhone 13 Pro Airplay Dolby Vision

    Dear all, one question. I have an iPhone 13 pro and the new Apple TV 4K. If I stream from my iPhone 13 a recorded clip with 4k Dolby Vision to my Apple TV 4K it doesn't play in Dolby Vision. Meaning it is probably SDR no HDR. I cannot find any information if this should work somehow? What are...

    Pair two pairs of AirPods with Apple TV? (For different users)

    My wife and I each have AirPods and are logged into Apple TV as different users. However, it is not possible to add my wife's AirPods. Does this not work because the Apple TV is actually paired with my Apple ID, no matter how many users I add? That would be a major limitation in the first place...

    stuttering image with apple tv on external monitor via hdmi

    So yesterday I connected my 4K TV to my MBP via the HDMI Port to watch apple TV. But it's kinda unwatchable because the image begins to stutter every 30 seconds or so for 1-2 seconds, which is super annoying. Anyone got any clue why this could be? Image quality was flawless otherwise. This was...

    Apps YouTubeTV and Apple TV pixelization issuers

    Going round and round with YTTV support and they don’t get it. I get occasional but more frequent vertical pixelization on mostly the broadcast networks, whether it is live or recorded. All of their suggestions didn’t help- lower the resolution, delete and reinstall the app. I have an A1842 32gb...

    Can Apple TV Remote Be Programmed to Skip Forward/backward 10 Seconds in YouTube App?

    The Apple TV control center app in iOS/iPadOS has buttons to skip forward or go backward 10 seconds, which I use all the time when watching YouTube. When clicking the direction wheel on the new Apple TV remote, it doesn't do that. Curious if there is a way to achieve this.

    Apple TV + Homekit + multi-user

    Does anyone know how I can setup an Apple TV, as an admin of a home, but not the owner? Currently, to get Homekit support on my Apple TV, I have to get the home owner to set it up, even though I am a home admin. This means that the default account on the ATV is that person, when it’s in a...

    Apple TV 4K - force 4K output quality on 1080p TV.

    Typically, if you have a 1080p TV, Apple TV 4K is going to work in 1080p mode and output a "low-res" picture. Turns out, it's possible to force Apple TV 4K to work in 4K mode and using 4K assets - go to Settings > Video and Audio > Format > Other formats and select 1600x1200 resolution...

    Kill AppleTV

    My son is staying up very late at night to watch appleTV. I once thought it was disabled after 12pm because I shutdown the internet via our router. Turns out this doesn't prevent viewing of local content. Is there way of preventing local traffic to the appleTV via home sharing? In previous...

    It’s hard to see from the picture below but if you run your finger up the top left of the remote you can feel the black plate is hanging off just a little. If you run your finger down the top right in the remote you can feel that the plate isn’t flush with the body of the remote. And that their...

    Apple TV UPS Data Viewable!

    Was excited to check my UPS app today and find tracking data had propagated from "AI" (Apple). Still does not show as "Shipped" on Apple's Store, but looks like I'll be getting mine on the first delivery date! When will yours be arriving?
