The conversation was about using DHCP reservations as in "Reserve the IP addresses for all of your current network (you should see something in the router menu saying something along the lines of DHCP reservations".What did you mean when you said "using the reservations table helps"?

It's a router configuration setting. If one's router is assigning IP addresses locally (almost assuredly it is, via DHCP) one will also have (in most routers) the ability to hard code the IP address (reserve it) for specific devices (based on their MAC address).

EDIT: Reading your other posts, I think you know how reserving/assigning static IP's work in a local network and didn't mean to imply otherwise! But in case someone reading this is not clear on it, I wanted to elaborate a bit more....

My point was what does the non sequitur from Gary J mean -- even disregarding that the thread was about using DCHP reservations.

And yes I'm quite aware of the conventional meanings of a local network (in the context of someone having IP networking problems with an ATV) and DHCP.

Don't get me started. I can't stand the 24 hour clock. I hate having to do math when I just want to know the correct time. How can anyway confuse 8 AM with 8 PM. Just add AM or PM much better then 20:00.

How can anyway confuse 8 AM with 8 PM? Er! They both have an '8'. :roll eyes:

24 hour time is just as "correct" as 12 hour time.
But yes if someone asks me what time it is I can say it's 14:02 or I can do the conversion for them.
My watch, phone, computer, car and stove all display 24 hour time. The coffeemaker and microwave remain limited to 12 hour time.

Analog clocks have 8 on them not 20. That just adds more confusion.

Well, there are analog 24 hour clocks which certainly have 20 on them. We used to have one hanging in the ED.

If I have an Apple TV connected to a Stereo amp using optical out, does the Dolby setting being On or Off makes a difference? What about 16 bit vs Auto?

No difference for 16 bit or auto. If you set the ATV to dolby digital it will still only output the number of channels present in the signal. If your receiver/amp is 2 channel that's what you'll get as it will disregard the extra channel info if present.

Thanks. I was just wondering that it would some how change the sound.

Also it's 100% for music.

Thanks

Stability and performance enhancements. The KB document pointed to in the second post typically lists changes. You can also expect any security enhancements from the underlying iOS update, in this case 8.1.3.

I'm fairly confident the question was about yesterday's iOS 8.1.3 update.

Sales update

In yesterday's earnings call Tim Cook said the ATV has sold 25 million units over its lifetime with about 5 million in sales over the last 9 months. Compared to 2 million in sales for Roku over the 9 month period they reported in November 2014 (which would have excluded year-end holiday sales) when Roku reported 10 million lifetime sales. Roku does claim that their products stream more hours than any major competitor and Sling TV might boost that a bit.
