I am very happy with the quality of the Apple TV, but I have also noticed it much dimmer than the native TV apps. I compared the ATV with the HDR10 disc also with the same movie and the ATV was very dim compared to the disc ( I know its HDR10 vs DV Streaming, but the brightness was very dim compared to the disc.
Comparing Native Apps, ATV, and Disc and the ATV was much dimmer in all the test, plus my neighbor had the same issue (Apple TV vs Native TV apps). But I have to give props to the ATV for the streaming quality.
Two of my post From the Z9D forum:
"Watched a few minutes of Altered Carbon tonight and also Godless tonight. Both show's are really good on the Z9. I switched back and forth between the ATV and the native app. They both look good, but I find the Native Netflix app on the Z9, shows DV much brighter than the Apple TV."
"Both are set up with the same settings (brightness, color etc) and I still find the Native apps when watching DV is brighter on the TV than the ATV. I have a 75 and by neighbor has a 65 with the same results. the quality is good between native and ATV for DV. However the native Netflix is much brighter. I am using the latest apple beta that came out this week."
