    I get the Pink screen when trying to play a movie in Dolby Vision on the Apple 4K TV anyone getting this? The strange thing is that it only happens on 2 of my 100+ 4K HDR and DV movies. Not sure why this is happening. Seems odd that only happens on two movies. Cloverfield & American Sniper 4K DV is the issue for me getting Pink screen on playback but all other 4K DV and HDR movies have no issues at all.
    I tried different HDMI ports and different cords etc seems random for just two movies.

    That is definitely one of the classic HDMI handshake issue screenshots.

    Same thing happens to me, but only with one of my movies. If I unplug the HDMI cable and then plug it in again, the issue resolves itself.

    I just got an Apple TV 4K today, and having the same issue with two Dolby Vision movies as well (Blade Runner 2049 and Ghost In The Shell). Unplugging and replugging the HDMI cable didn't fix it, but what did is if you change the setting to have the Apple TV home screen to be 4K SDR (and not dolby vision or HDR), and then select the movie, MOST of the time it'll display correctly. Might need to restart the Apple TV to get it to work. But that has mostly alleviated the problem for me.

    It just works?
