    I have an Apple TV 4K (A2169) and a TCL 65P725 model TV which supports both HDR and Dolby Vision. However there is an issue with the Apple TV's Dolby Vision which makes it unusable. The first time I set the ATV to 4K DV mode everything is fine. The color is vibrant and bright. But if I open any...

    I have a frustrating issue that I was hoping to resolve as I like to use my Apple TV 4K for streaming movies and listening to some spatial audio. I have a setup at the house where I have a wired gig ethernet connection going to my 2021 ATV 4K. From there, I go to a Pioneer VSX-LX505 AVR to an...

    Hi All, I’m having some intermittent audio issues when watching content on my Apple TV 4K through my AVM 60. I have tried a few different HDMI cables as well as different inputs on the AVM 60, however I get audio that is choppy, muffled and even crackling from time to time. Anyone have a...

    First time poster, sorry if this in the wrong place. Last Dec, I got a Samsung Q70 (75" if that matters), Bose 700 + Sub, and AppleTV 4K to be the primary set up. Last TV purchase was 2008, so it's been a bit! I was a little naive how all the remotes worked. It was almost like the...

    Hi, So I've had the UHD41-ARC for a couple of years, and I just noticed that the switch isn't recognizing the Dolby Vision signal from my Apple TV 4K.

    I was a little excited when I heard to accompany the upcoming Apple TV+, Apple would also start to offer à-la-carte channel subscriptions via Apple's own TV app. I'm normally happy with whatever Apple comes up with, so I decided to let my HBO subscription via Amazon expire, and then try it on...

    Hi everyone, I've got a strange issue since tvOS 12.0 was released (frame rate matching active). When playing 1080p movies (iTunes and Amazon Prime tested so far), the frame pacing is not perfect at all times. Every few minutes a frame is dropped. It looks like if you actually play a 24.000fps...

    As you know Onkyo TX-SR373 doesn't have Airplay. I was on a budget and already had an Apple TV 4K, so I thought I could settle on a less expensive model for my first home theatre. I have to admit, so far it has been very frustrating but let me just focus on this one: I have connected the Apple...

    Hi, I have a new Samsung QLED (8fn) and I am trying to enable HDR, but it won't let me. I have enabled HDMI UHD color on the proper HDMI Port under external device manager in the Samsung settings. My AV receiver (Marantz 7012) looks like it's in order, though I don't recall ever having to...
