    I've had an ATV 3 for years and now have an ATV4 but they both share a common problem.

    Sometimes I notice that the bottom left corner of whatever is on the screen is about 1/2 second behind in being updated. It's a rectangular size area maybe 1/12 the size of the entire screen. A reboot of the ATV3 solved this problem for weeks until it would show up again.

    On the ATV4, a reboot solves the problem for a day, then it returns.

    This happens on the menu or inside Netflix, so it must be a system-wide problem.

    Anyone else seeing this or have I just been fortunate enough to have two ATVs with this same problem?

    Not sure if I specifically notice that problem, but there are some judder/lag issues that appear in certain apps. I know it is an ATV issue b.c I do not see that on the roku with the same content.

    Judder and lag can usually be fixed by telling your TV that the ATV input is a games console or PC.

    Great suggestion! Funny thing was that game mode was already on. When I turned it off, the problem immediately corrected itself.
