    anyone else having a problem where their tv4k is just using the same 3 screen savers over and over?
    I have it set to download daily but still just the same three.
    I have on rare occasion seen t play a couple of different ones but not for over a week now.

    Yep, I have noticed that too. But to be fair that also happened a lot on my 4th Gen ones too. I have also noticed that sometimes at night it will play daytime screensavers.

    I turned the live wallpapers off. I got thoroughly sick of looking at Dubai. I'd rather look at other cities or natural scenes.

    One easy way Apple could make the Apple TV better would be to allow user settings for the screensaver. i.e.. Let us pick our favorites! :cool:

    I have a desert and some airport or something. Oh ya and every angle of Dubai. At this point I'm probably more familiar with the streets of Dubai then the residence are.

    That is strange. There are definitely separate screensavers for day- and nighttime.
    I will need to check, if they are still switched now on mine, after I turned off the location services on tvOS.
    At least now it refuses to autoswitch dark- and light UI themes. Could also impact the switching of screensavers.

    I see what you did there ;)

    I downloaded all the HDR versions, patched the fourCC to hvc1 (basically throwing away the Dolby Vision metadata), and set the videos to rotate as screensavers on my Nvidia Shield. The HDR10 "core" works perfectly and looks amazing. Really hope Apple updates this manifest soon with more videos!

    Well it’s actually set as the Kodi screensaver (I don’t really use the Shield for Netflix/Amazon etc because it can’t output Dolby Vision). Used the Video Screensaver addon and pointed it to a directory on my server with the patched .mov files! Took 2 min to set up.
