I got that message when I woke mine from sleep using the remote.

Today I found out that if you want Netflix to output Dolby Digital instead of PCM you have to select Dolby surround in audio/video settings. I had it on auto and it wasn't sending out Dolby Digital.

The new model has faster hardware, the Siri remote and an App Store. Does any of that sound worth spending at least $150 really depends on you. Also since it now has an App Store the interfaces you're used to may be different for apps. I personally liked the ATV3 Netflix app. The new one has the Netflix interface everything else has which isn't as efficient to me. To me the upgraded hardware made it worthwhile. Streams start up quicker and scrubbing through videos is way faster now.

I have the same tv. The tv apps are usable. If you watch anime there's no crunchy roll app on the tv as far as I know. I don't think there's an official Kodi app from the App Store. There's plex. I prefer the Apple TV because I feel like it's more likely to get bug fixes and updates quicker than tv apps (save maybe android tv on Sonys). Also stuff like Netflix and amazon run noticeably better on the Apple TV. The difference between 32 and 64 is $20 so I don't think there's much reason to get the 32.

It has options to match framerate and dynamic range of source content now. The 1080 videos I've watched look fine on my 4k tv.

That was supposed to require app updates to support it. Did apps update?

Oh, sorry. I was unaware it needed to be added by individual apps. I thought it was more of system level thing where it just sent out whatever video it was getting from the streaming service. I haven't seen it mentioned anywhere that Netflix, Amazon added it but then they don't really have useful release notes for their updates.

I checked yesterday and have it. I have my Apple TV connected to a receiver and that connected to TV as well.

As others have said you don't have to run two networks. If you need to keep the Verizon router around to provide internet to the cable boxes then turn off the wireless radios on the Verizon router and use your Google mesh for wireless. You may have to put it in wireless access point mode or something like that so it's not double routing. I use a second router for wireless in my home for this reason and the wireless on the Verizon router wasn't working that well for me.

TvOS 13 added that. It's like control center. Also it's just hold tv button to bring it up.

I think ATV has subtitle options in the accessibility settings.

Dickinson is ok. I keep forgetting Servant was released. One thing I noticed is that streaming quality is way better than Netflix or amazon.

I turned it on and seems hit or miss. When I start the app the spotlight video doesn't auto play. Scrolling through some stuff still auto plays.

Twice now since upgrading to 14.5, Iíve turned on my AppleTV and thought stuff looked a little off, and found out that it had somehow changed its default setting to 4K HDR instead of 4K SDR. Has this been happening to anyone else?

I've had this happen randomly after an update.

YouTube is crappy but Amazon prime video deserves some kind of award for how poo poo it is.
