2.5 of 5? lol. I just upgraded from an ATV HD and love this thing. It does circles around my new Vizio set's media OS (including the Apple TV+ app bundled in it). The in-TV OS is so atrocious my partner refused to use it.
Beats said: Correct me if I’m wrong but Arcade games have to still support iPhone 6S. So you can have an M1 device but the games are still iPhone 6S quality.
In a completely baffling move, the new 2021 Apple TV 4K does not include support for spatial audio with the AirPods Max or AirPods Pro.It’s not a “completely baffling move” if you do a little research or someone takes the time to fact check an article... Apple’s implementation of spatial audio requires gyroscopes and accelerometers on both the headphone side and the device side in order to compare the difference and modify the audio coming from your AirPods Pro/Max. Clearly the AppleTV doesn’t have or need such sensors. Implementing spatial audio would require a modification of some kind in the methodology that Apple uses to achieve the effect, perhaps acoustic mapping from the HomePod lineup or some other method. It does support traditional (higher quality) surround sound on your headphones though.

Does anyone have any idea how to export the digital audio signal from ATV? My receiver can’t correctly decode the 4K HDR signal, so I am only able to use 4K SDR. But when I connect the ATV directly to my 4K tv, Vizio M75, the tv can and work as Dolby Vision display, I don’t even need to do colour calibration. However, the tv only has a optical out which connected to my soundbar. So anyone know a way for the ATV to output a separate audio signal? My receiver don’t even have Airplay. Do I need to get a HDMI splitter? But does it even support HDMI 2.1 and Dolby vision?Thanks

I'll be picking one up. Moving my current 4K ATV to a bedroom and retiring an ATV3.Not needed yet, but this will give me Thread support centrally located in my Home. A bit of future benefit there.
What a crappy update. I waited 3.5 years for this sh**. Minecraft leaving Apple TV was enough but then a bunch of other high quality games left the tvOS Store shortly after. My best PAID games are GONE. Ducktales, a game that ran on NES (1984) left Apple TV!!!!!Apple TV has been the worst gaming experience ever and I’ve owned turds like Virtual Boy and Gamecube(2001) which would absolutely ANNIHILATE Apple TV if it were released in 2021.
Everyone was hoping for a M1 but we got the three year old A12 instead. I guess Apple was afraid people would hack it to run MacOS.
Another Neil article where he has no clue who AI and Apple customers are.
