The RRP is £30 so this is not expensive. You may have got a better deal but right now when the whole country is trying to do things like stream their live videos calls to the TV these are hot products.

You really have to be a mug to pay nearly 170 quid for this. No real extra functionality that any other devices for a third of this price.

koskesh

lol just because both are called 4k streamers doesn’t mean they are same. they are simply not comparable. you can compare it with Nvidia Shield TV

iEimis

There’s no guarantees with leaks as always but Jon has had a very good run this year predicting things to the point of the accurate release date and even the exact time for press releases for the last couple of things. Apple hates him now and Phil Schiller blocked him on twitter lol

Bezzy

I’ll hold on a month then... might explain the refurb off load that keeps appearing

iEimis

The release date wasn’t rumoured but Jon Prosser suggested they are ‘ready to ship’ potentially announcing in WWDC at the end of June or just a press release maybe like iPad, Macbook Air/Pro and SE over the last couple of months

Well its not really, it is a different design of the same thing, just like any hardware refresh. Just like both amd and Intel have done many times. So it is new hardware design, so not 5 years old, but also not generational and not worth a premium. As noted though its totally fit for purpose as it ever was.

nickkelly

The short answer is Yes, it will. The problem is that Atmos can be encoded in either lossless (Dolby TrueHD) or lossy (Dolby Digital) format. The files you have must only contain a TrueHD Atmos audio stream. DD+ Atmos files will play via the internal app. The internal app and Plex on the TV support lossy DD Atmos but not TrueHD Atmos. LG have said they wont fix this as the only real use case is pirate content, and fixing it would require changes to the hardware. Full uncompressed audio with TrueHD Atmos needs to come from an external source.

TheLondonCyclist

Yes. A certain few people in the U.K. keep buying them up and selling on ebay etc

Weirdly you can't & the original (blue logo) boxes are pretty expensive second-hand. I got mine new from a HUKD post about three years ago for £20 & it's still one of my favourite things - you can pause both live TV & NowTV streams, rewind either feed up to half an hour, it smoothly integrates all NowTV passes into the EPG so there's no faffing about, I can't understand why they removed the Freeview tuner from the later 4K (purple logo) model.

Chwal

Best option ebay, as now tv no longer make the ones with Freeview HD built in.

Even though I’m someone who uses multiple ATV4K a lot, I wouldn’t need any more power from one as they are just 4K players for me (ripper my ex yes I’ve UHD library for playback on Plex) What might be a selling point for some is the availability of the new streaming codec (AV1). I’m not sure if ANY TVs support that yet so if that’s the case it may be another reason to upgrade. But as I rip all my stuff to H265 MKV and thats plays fine and storage isn’t an issue for me, I’m more than content with the current model (and at £109 ish that I’ve paid for each) I’m more than happy

jouster

Sell it now whilst it still has value.

Agreed re storage size. I guess if you play lots of games that has a use but I have PS4s gathering dust for that (although they have just gained a new lease of life)

jouster

We use ours (we have 3 and a 4th incoming from the grade B BT Shop deal) everyday. We use them to steam 4K UHD rips of our purchased discs across the house using Plex and Infuse Pro and it’s faultless I understand for those watching iTunes material and stuff from their phone, most new TVs do a great job but for anything above and beyond, in my honest opinion you’re going to be looking at this or the Nvidia Shield and nothing else comes close to the overall speed and agility of those systems for proper 4K viewing of uncompressed material. That said not everyone needs this and for many things like Firesticks are fine. That said 4K really prefers hardwiring a device(yes a I know WiFi can work) but as someone who has hardwired ethernet everywhere, it simply can’t be beat) If you want to sell your 4K box, let me know. Could always do with a 5th one ;)

sounds like it... the apple 4k tv should be very fast and smooth.... and yeh the remote does suck a bit. but you can program any remote you want to work with it if its unbearable. its also compatible with ps4, xbox and most bluetooth gamepads now have you checked if it needs an update? maybe it needs a good reset and update. clear the caches etc...

GapsOfTheGod

Urgh, coming from the Apple TV app on my LG C9, I'm finding the Apple TV 4K slow between menus, and the remote is utter turd. Could there be something wrong with the box?

Just.Wondering

For PC I use Moonlight, for PS4, I use a third party app called PSplay, I think it was £2.99, it is well supported in the XDA forums. Both apps will work with third party controllers I bought one of these from Amazon, works very well. https://www.amazon.co.uk/PG-9083-Wireless-Bluetooth-Controller-Smartphone/dp/B07B8PJFPJ/ref=mp_s_a_1_6?dchild=1&keywords=tablet+Bluetooth+controller&qid=1590353434&sr=8-6 But when streaming use 5GHz, 2.4ghz tends to mess with Bluetooth when streaming.

This stock is mythical. They simply don't exist. It's been this way with the 2 remaining items for almost 2 months. It's a glitch on the Amazon stock system. Try putting one in your basket and going to checkout. (annoyed) (confused) (skeptical)

Just.Wondering

I bought the Samsung 43inch a couple of years ago for 4k gaming, I had a 28 inch monitor before that, the TV I bought had good opinions from the Overclockers UK forum, for less than £250 at the time of purchase, due to a ebay site wide discount code, it gave a lot of benefits over a monitor, price, size, resolution and HDR..

Well whether the fridgecam works or not the speakers themselves are simply brilliant. Sound quality much better than my echo dot and unlike Alexa it seems to be 100% reliable at hearing 'OK Google' and responding with the result asked for. So impressed I have now bought three of them for myself and family.

Horrorwood

It looks a load of crap to be honest, probably why it is free with this item which was already a good deal. Reviews online seem to say they don't really work. Scan probably just want rid of them.

TopTrump

Has anybody used the fridgecam? I presume it remains powered on in standby so that you are able to see it on the network. How often does it need a charge? Or does that depend on how often people open/close the fridge? Can I lay a trap, to see who is eating my chilled Kit-Kat? Description says, " Works with almost All Fridges", I don't see how it interacts with the fridge, or is it stating whether a signal will be able to reach it within most fridges? Can you access live image (does it have its own light) if you are off premises?

I personally dislike Plex it requires way too much horsepower and electricity to run 24/7, plus the privacy issues mean I avoid it. Jellyfin is a little less resource hungry and it's opensource / free.
