Re: tvOS 14, Developer's Beta 2 "There's a new option to manually choose a screensaver category in 'tvOS 14', and for those who watch YouTube, 'tvOS 14' supports watching YouTube videos in 4K for the first time." -- https://www.macrumors.com/It would be cool if they could release 4K HDR YouTube in beta and not hold it until the official 14 release.
Thanks for the info.I’m not Jim, but I hope it’s ok to answer anyway.
Someone running the tvOS 14 developer beta 1 checked three titles that are confirmed to have a 24.000fps frame rate and he says that they are still output at 23.976Hz (which will produce frame drops).
So what we can say at the moment is that this issue is still present with the first developer beta of tvOS 14. Some may say that this might change but in my opinion it won’t until the final release. I guess we will have to wait for the new model and see if Apple gets this right on the new one. So we will finally know if this doesn’t get fixed on the current one because of a hardware/firmware limitation or if Apple is just ignorant (if the issue also affects the new one).
Edit: Sorry, I just realized that this topic is only about the public betas of tvOS. So you actually wanted to know if the 24fps issue is fixed with the current public beta of 13.4.8. I’m on the public beta channel myself so I can tell you that the issue is (of course) also still present on this one.
You're right, of course; no public beta for tvOS14. Looks like my referenced source made a mistake. Or, that they are privy to something that the rest of us are not.There’s only a developer beta, no public beta available. I’m in the dev program and there’s no YouTube 4K.

They are just reporting (incorrectly) what Apple posted on the ATV page last month. Apple anticipates YouTube in UHD with the commercial release of tvOS 14. Presumably Google will release a new YouTube app at some point in time that will let us "Watch the latest YouTube videos in their full 4K glory.". The word latest may be casual usage or it may mean a specific limitation.Looks like my referenced source made a mistake. Or, that they are privy to something that the rest of us are not.
I hope Jim will tell us.I have not been following closely. Are there potential issues with tvOS 14?
I have never had any issues with public betas, it is just the way Jim announced this update that gave me pause.I hope Jim will tell us.
I thought we would first see the final version of 13.4.8. ... so at the moment people on the public beta channel have to update from the last public beta of 13.4.8. to the first public beta of 14.

Is the "Step 1 of 2: Preparing Update" supposed to take this long? I thought it got stuck so I rebooted my ATV4K and then went back to Updates and the Beta was turned Off again. I had to turn it back On and start again. It's now at the same point "Preparing Update".
