This post is similar to a previous one, I just want to note the ability of Apple TV 4K, to map the color tone from HDR to SDR.

 

Emby on Apple TV 4K: 4K HDR display:

Infuse on Apple TV 4K: 4K HDR display:

Infuse on Apple TV 4K: 1080p SDR display:

A little bright, but acceptable. Much better than Nvidia Shield looks when playing 4K HDR content on a 1080p SDR screen. Therefore, Apple TV 4K is a device with a GPU powerful enough to play content. But Emby doesn't know how to take advantage of it.

Can you go into more detail on these points? I am not versed at all in anything Apple.

 

But what exactly do you think the pain points are? Can you provide screen shots of the Apple TV app where it lacks and from other apps where you show what you expect? Text can only convey a small part of the bigger picture. The actual images leave no room for doubt and will immediately make apparent what you mean. Otherwise people may think you are just spoiled. Since the majority on Apple are just spoiled white people or people who want to act like spoiled white people. Not knocking you either. But Apple is a white person device. To own it makes you look like you wish you were white if you are not. Just happens. Just a fact.

 

Not racist on this either I only have white friends who own iPhone. I am also white. But I dislike the stigma others give to those not white when they see them holding an iPhone. Some of my friends look at them and make comments like, "probably stole it" or "no wonder its an old iphone 4". I have to chime in with, "yeah.. Apple is expensive knucklehead. he thinks you guys are cool so wants to come along. Don't knock him because Apple makes prices so ridiculous for their 3x profit markup. Just suck it up you guys paid 3x more than you should've too. He got his on the used market. He is smarter.". Then they look at me and ask why I don't have a cellphone. I remind them they are expensive and a burden. I've never had one.. lol.

 

But can you list some issues with pictures and maybe even give a small review of where you think the problems lie? Sort of like give yourself room to just think of everywhere you think it fails you. Without such a list there is just guesswork at where the rough corners are to proceed to sand them. We want the same thing you do. But without knowing exactly what you want we can just guess and assume we want the same thing. Maybe there is a difference? Seeing pictures and knowing where/how/why will help produce the effect you want. Rather than just discourage developers give them tools they need to do better. Point out where you want priority and where you want things resolved.

 

Don't rush into this either and use emotion. Just make a well thought out post with some pictures, some comments, and a review where Emby on Apple TV needs to focus to improve. Thanks. :)

 

I agree with your post but I think you should delete the crossed out sentences because they are not related to the world of media and can be understood as racism. Perhaps it is because English is not my native language and for me it sounds like racism. Thanks.

It is not necessary to keep bump this post. I have done as you asked. Thanks. :)
