    I have an Apple TV plugged directly into a LG sound bar. Does it airplay 2 in sync with a homepod? Not a chance.

    All this will do is piss more people off.

    With this announcement I plan on getting Sony XBR-75X950G. I currently run all my home audio/video through a Yamaha RX-A2080. My receiver supports airplay and can easily stream music to it but not video. I have a decent amount of movies through iTunes and would like better access to them on my home entertainment system. 4K, Dolby Atmos, Dolby vision support etc...

    My question is: Will I be able to stream a movie/video from my iPhone X to the 950G AND audio (from the movie) to the receiver at the same time? (synced of course).

    Maybe this will lead to TV audio playing nice with HomePod speakers as a surround sound system.

    Hopefully this means that Sky will add Airplay 2 video support to Sky Q rather than just the audio support it has at the moment.

    yep i do that too. be nice if it accepted tv sound output tho so everything that you watch on the tv can sound through the Homepod.
