Has anyone had the chance to install tvOS 16? Any thing of note to report? HDR10+? Atmos fix?
Thanks for any info.
Thanks for any info.
I installed and have been using it. Have not yet noticed any new features.I’ve updated now. It took quite a while, I guess the servers were busy at Apple what with the other OSes that were also released. I started iOS 16 a good while before tvOS 16, and iOS 16 is still installing.
For those who have never installed a tvOS update, after it finishes it takes a minute or so for the remote to work again. It will eventually start working again. Sometimes the remote gets a separate update.
So far everything seems okay. I’ll report back later after using some of the apps.
I discovered another new feature. When watching a TV series like Star Trek when you complete an episode a full picture of the next episode fill your tv screen.Yes. Works great. Though I don't notice much of a difference except you can have different profiles on the Apple TV ... finally.
Where would you expect to see HDR10+? Hardly any services use it and AFAIK, Apple claimed at one point it was coming to the Apple TV app not to tvOS as a whole. But the Apple TV app uses Dolby Vision for most content anyways.Installed and not seeing hdr+ or hi Def audio
My parents use YouTube daily and are not experiencing this.YouTube is as sucky as ever, perhaps even worse. Even before tvOS 16 it was screwing up when it transfers from ad to video content. The screen would go black and sometimes the first second or so of the content would be lost. That started recently under tvOS 15.6, but it was even worse last night with tvOS 16. Just one more reason to use the YouTube app on my Sony TV or the one on my Fire TV Cube. This YouTube war between Apple and Google is ridiculous!
The new TvOS 16 seems to have killed Prime Video on my 4k ATV. Prime Video won't open but PV shows play if I double click them from the AppleTV next up list.
Anyone run into this?
Yes!! That at least got it loaded. I was just too impatient which is not unusual. Maybe PV needs an update if all of us have this!!! Thanks for the feedback.I just tried it and it sat at the splash screen for a long time and eventually some screen in German, before it flashed an error code 24 and then loaded. So it loads, but badly. I think I saw that prior to upgrading to tvOS as I remember seeing the German error screen.
