    My setup: Sony BRAVIA A9G and an Apple TV 4K. I always have to hit the home button on the Apple TV remote to wake the Sony TV up, and whenever I put the Apple TV to sleep, it would turn off the tv. NOW it never puts the Sony TV to sleep. The Apple TV goes to sleep, just leaving a "no input"...

    Anyone else notice major commercial stations are now removed...

    My 2 favorite commercial FM radio stations, LA's 106.7 KROQ and Chicago's 93XRT, both used to be accessible via iTunes internet radio and Apple TV's Radio app. I would stream them both to my Apple TV and listen through my stereo since my radio reception is not great. As of yesterday, I noticed...

    Upgrade from 2nd gen to the Apple TV 4K, worth it?

    Hi, I have an Apple TV 2nd gen. I use my PS4 to stream Netflix, Amazon Prime, BBC, etc... I've seen that when using AirPlay, (being the source an iPhone XS Max or MacBook Pro 2018), there is a little bit of a lag. Is it worth upgrading to a newer generation of Apple TV? I would consider the...

    AppleTV4k / tvOS 12.2 not incrementing episodes
