Would love a private listening option you could plug into the remote like what the Roku has, I know, doubtful
Apple’s answer is AirPods which does work but it limited by battery life.

Actually, you can connect any Bluetooth headphones. Just put the headphones into pairing mode and go to Settings > Remotes and Devices > Bluetooth. Once the headphones appear you can select them to pair and connect.

I prefer wireless than being wired to my remote.
I have also simultaneously used two airpods when my daughter was doing homework and finally out of her bedroom :p

I tried that awhile back to use the Fitness app, I and recall that the ATV wasn’t remembering the pairing, so I had to go through that pairing process every time I wanted to connect. I had that issue with AirPods and with Boze Bluetooth ear buds. Was I doing something wrong?

Infuse 6 pro is my favorite app ever.

I watch more of my own media streamed on local network on ATV4K than I do streamed media from the net.

Ps. I found changing my NAS protocol from SMB to FTP resulted in ten times higher transfer rates.

Agree on Infuse but on protocol, were you using SMB 2 or 3?

I have no idea. I didn't realize there were 3 or more SMB. My NAS devices are old now and I only compared the SMB and FTP from them and didn't see any options for 2 or 3 and so on. FTP is working perfectly but maybe someday I'll look into whatever the 2 and 3 stuff is. Seems to me SMB is too advanced for what I want from the transfer which is simple but perfect.

My old NAS devices (Lenovo IX-300D) run some linux type OS and communicate (via FTP now) directly with my ATV4K. I mention this because I keep seeing reference to Windows with SMB and since I have ZERO use for windows in the chain I won't go out of my way to add it and all the instability that comes with it.

I understand. Plex and Infuse will negotiate to whatever SMB protocol the source device can handle or is set to. SMB 2 and 3 are much, much faster than the older v1. My source devices are Plex Servers on Nvidia Shield and a 2 year old Mac, no Windows.

Seriously what the XXXX????!!!!????
🤬 I wonder if we’ll now see inventory being bought up and then sold at ridiculous prices like when Oppo announced the end of production? I was still hoping they would one day produce a One replacement.😡

I"m glad I have the Harmony Hub and glad it works with homekit. I run the Harmony Bridge app which adds any hub activities to homekit. I have the smart control remote which is almost as small as the ATV4K remote and it's about perfect. So I'm glad that one keeps acting like it's workin

I never gave it much thought but since I removed the physical windows in the Home Theater I can actually remove all the Microsoft ones too.

I like Infuse so much I truely don't use Plex and stopped my Plex server. I may still bite if they keep sending me the Lifetime for $79 deal but that's only because I used it for many years already and I'd like to give something for it. I guess you can donate to it as an alternative. I feel bad but the subscription never gave anything I wanted.
