I've been thinking about this too.

Earlier rumors I heard about Siri replies was that they could simply be written replies only on screen rather than audible. One way audio.

That combined with muted remote navigation bleeps and there's no need to decode and mix audio. Simply pass through the bitstream audio. Would this be a viable option for audiophiles, if it could be implemented?

I sincerely hope that when someone has an Apple TV 4K in hand that they start a new thread for "owners" of the ATV 4K. Maybe then all this "atmos"/etc. will go away and actual operation/etc will commence .

With "Auto" gone, is there no longer an "RGB High" option? If you want to leave your TV settings alone, you need to use either it or YCbCr.

Sorry, I had been using RGB High, not low. So there’s no difference between High and YCbCr?

After getting tvOS 11 I have HDMI-CEC issues. If I airplay from an iOS device it works great and my AVR switches inputs to the Apple TV. But if I reach for the ATV remote and hit, say menu, i see the light on the ATV but my inputs won't switch over. I have to switch inputs manually. It used to just switch over with any ATV command.

CEC is still on on my Pioneer AVR and Contro TVs and Receivers is still on in the ATV.
