I explained this to you in another thread a while back.I have an app called tvStorage and it says I have 10GB free. I don't play games and don't have allot of apps so why so low on space? How does ATV manage storage and what does it do when it gets low?
No I am just going by what the app says. I have zero games and not that many apps. I guess all my space is being used for cache and temporary files. Thats good to hear. Sometimes I need to reboot the apple tv because it wont load my movies, buy movies or what not but after the reboot it usually works fine. Not sure what causes this but perhaps bugs in the OS that hopefully will be corrected on Sept 30.I explained this to you in another thread a while back.
The various ways of checking your used storage for tvOS, either by app or Xcode, will not give you an accurate used and free storage size.
This is due to how it is calculated. It appears that temporary data, or cached data, is being included in the used storage amount.
tvOS caches a huge amount of data from things like games and video streams. If the OS needs more storage, it dumps temporary things like the cache, freeing up space to be used for other apps.
This is great for many reasons, such as going back to an app after a few days and being left off where you were before. The downside being is that you will never have an accurate free/used storage information.
BTW, the aerial screen savers is another thing that tvOS considers as temporary, and the OS will dump some if space is needed.
[doublepost=1568765308][/doublepost]Do you have concerns about running out of storage space?
If so, you should be fine. I have ran out of space on a 32GB ATV, but I also had a lot of apps with many being games.
In my experience, tvOS has been one of the buggiest Apple OS since it's launch. It was really bad at launch.Not sure what causes this but perhaps bugs in the OS that hopefully will be corrected on Sept 30.
That stinks it's buggy.In my experience, tvOS has been one of the buggiest Apple OS since it's launch. It was really bad at launch.
But, it has gotten much better over the years, and upgrading from a ATV4 to ATV4k seemed to have addressed many of the remaining bugs and glitches, maybe to do the kick ass A10X versus the under-powered A8.
Although, I still use my ATV, and it seems like it is running pretty well now with the current tvOS.
It is a lot better than it used to be, and the ATV4K had huge HW and performance improvements which might be, at least in part, reasons why the bugs were so bad in the early days of the ATV4 and tvOS launch.That stinks it's buggy.
I have used a few different streaming boxes or have them built-in to a TV, such as Roku, Firestick, FireTV, Chromecast, and every model of the ATV.I probably have to get one because Roku and Amazon both leave WPS running 24/7, which is a security disaster. Amazon is buggy anyway, and missing Disney+. Xbox One is missing the upcoming TiVo app.
