    YAY! was really hoping native frame rate would come to ATV4 since I don't have 4K and probably won't anytime soon.

    So remote has an issue with clicking play/pause, and the remote app can't find the Apple TV in this beta (it can find the other Apple TV that is not on beta, so the issue is not with iOS 11.3 beta). Anybody else with this?

    Edit: remote app works fine if nothing is playing on the ATV, but as soon as I start playing something on e.g. Netflix or music, it can't find the ATV.

    Betas are betas for a reason. They have bugs. If you aren't willing to risk it then don't install it.

    Can’t seem to install this. It gets about halfway done and then restarts and stays on 11.2.5. Anyone else with this issue?

    I installed it by mistake. I didn't notice it was the new beta after 11.2.5 GM. And now the audio passthrough in Infuse is broken. It outputs white scratchy noise in PCM 2.0. Am I the only one?

    I have the exact same issue and thought I was going crazy! I even erased and restored the ATV using the ISPW manually and that didn't fix it.

    The only way to get back remote connection is to reboot the AppleTV.

    I have the same play pause issue. I also notice with frame rate switching on HEVC files went from perfect to hit and miss with some having slight audio delays. This will be addressed because the same thing happened on the Apple 4k on the first 11.1 beta

    Same problem here, although I can not get my remote app to connect even when video is not playing. Will keep trying, but am just going to assume I’ll have to wait until beta 2 at least. I have submitted feedback for the play/pause and remote app issues.

    Had both controllers go laggy or unresponsive (usual remote and game controller) turned the power off and on and it is OK now. Other than that, not noticed anything wrong. Not got around to full watch of all 4k vs the rest etc. but a quick shufty and all appears OK.

    If I restart the ATV, the remote app works fine until I start playing something. I have to restart again to get it back to work. I also have an issue with AirPods, they'll connect and work but I can't control the volume and I don't see the volume indicator on the screen. I have to restart to get it back to normal. I have submitted feedback for it all, and hope beta 2 will fix it.

    Is there any hope of fixing the black screens between menu options.
    Taking upto a few seconds between remote commands.
    Later .2 and .3 beta included.
    Can’t remember on ap4ktv purchase,

    I've found the new beta allows me to get to 4k on iTunes film streams, struggled before with my poor 12Mbs broadband.

    Perhaps related, the Apple TV won’t keep a connection with my Bluetooth keyboard. Upon connecting, it immediately drops the connection.

    I believe this is the frame rate switching happening. I notice it a lot in Netflix on the beta for my Apple tv4 and it was around on my Apple tv4k since I first got it.

    Is it just me or is the Apple TV 4k upscaler better on 11.2.5 firmware ?
