    Hi there,

    not sure if somebody knows about this but I just found out that we can reveal a hidden advanced settings menu in the software update settings of tvOS 9.1. You have to click multiple times the play/pause button until the menu appears. Maybe this is helpful to anyone. Especially because there seems to be a VPN option.

    Here is a video:



    Let me know what you think.

    Cheers

    Interesting.

    Not sure what any of it means, the VPN option is greyed out on mine.

    AppleConnect??? Google provides vague (to me) results...

    Have you found out anything we might use it for?

    I figured that the appleconnect is an internal apple auth system. I guess we can't use anything of it.

    It accepted my AppleID, after that the VPN button turned black. Of course it fails to load the profile. Don't even know, where shall it come from. Neither Xcode nor Apple Configurator I have, recognise the aTV 4 Gen.
    Also, the Build Train and Buld Number seem to allow to install specific builds of tvOS.

    My AppleID is also registered as a developer. Unpaid, though.

    If you press the Play/Pause several times in the "General" you can get the "Demo Mode"

    I guess by now people pressed play/pause several times everywhere? can we find any additional hidden menus?
