One thing I really like about YTTV is the guide, you can choose which channels to see or not see like setting up favorites with ATTTVN, but you can also change the order of how the channels appear so you can have all your most watch channels right at the top. And the guide shows a thumbnail of live TV for each station. Yesterday I went to cancel my trial which ends next week so I wouldn't be billed, but they also had an 8 week pause option, which saves all of your settings and recordings, I chose that as I'm really thinking of switching again. Last night on ATTTVN I had recordings with lip sync, and the glitch with pulling up the guide (on the ATV4K) is just ridiculous at this point. There's really nothing on HBO for me atm so losing that and going with YTTV + Philo would be less money also.
Yeah I asked them several times about adding DD 5.1 and they just say yes they have plans to but no information when at this time. It's a joke, garbage cable has 5.1 sound since the late 90s I think.
Everything else is great but I would miss the gameshow network but that is just about all I would miss. I need 5.1 sound, it's 2020.

Agree, most times it's not a big deal, but other times it really adds to the enjoyability (yeah I made that up) of a show. My preamp has a simulated DD surround mode that works pretty well but not the same as real 5.1 surround.

Have you applied the latest tvOS update (13.4.5 I believe)? I forgot to mention the new firmware

I'll have to check the fw, I haven't manually applied anything. I thought, from what people who contacted Apple and AT&T reported about the issue, the problem was with the ATTTVN app and not ATV?

I have never thought it was limited to the ATT app as I had the same problem with the NHL.TV app.

In any case, it seems to be fixed for me but wanted to see if others were experiencing the same result.

I just upgraded the ATV4K FW, so far watching for just a few minutes it seems to be fixed, before it would become unwatchable right away using 4K SDR. The guide also worked properly, fingers crossed for that. If they finally fixed the lip sync/judder that would be so nice, I had been using the Amazon Fire TV Stick but that has problems with Netflix, so I'd be switching back and forth b/w them, and generally prefer the ATV even though the remote is horrible.

If it's fixed, the best part is that I won't have to remember to switch back and forth if using the ATV for Netflix/Itunes/Vudu 4K HDR.

Have they fixed the problem on the client box concerning forced HDR, or some problem like that?

Was too good to be true, lip sync issues again with ATV4K set to 4K SDR while watching recordings. And the guide bug also not fixed.
