Black screen with DoVi P8 on Apple TV 4k 2022

Hi no the problem I have is only from YTS

So I would try to source some.
All my HDR/Dolby Vision files come from probably 10-20 different release groups. I have never had this issue with any of them.

Unfortunately I haven’t been able to find any YTS releases to look into it further.

PM’d you

I am in the same boat …
Some media files playing flawlessly on latest infuse for MacOS but getting only black screen and audio on latest infuse ( updated today ) on my iPhone 14Pro Max.

Here’s an example:

I tried on my Mac, 2x Apple TVs ( old 4K ) and everyoneplay the file correctly, only my ipad and iPhone refuse to display the video part.


PS: it’s definitively something related to Dolby Vision because when I play other media that are not reported “DV” , although using BT.709

Wait for the release of tvOS 17 and infuse 7.6.1. And your problem will be solved.

It’s yet another file from the same release group YTS) that everyone else with the issue has been using.
With BT709 in a Dolby Vision file I’m not convinced they will work even with native OS support.
Those files are funky.

I can’t believe all of our totally legal YTS backups aren’t working…

I can confirm that the same issue exists for files in my library too.

The playback only works on my MacBook Pro with M2 Max. The devices it fails on are:

  • Apple TV 4K
  • iPhone 14 Pro
  • iPad Air 4th Generation

It would be nice if someone from the team could tell the technical details of why the playback fails on said devices but works fine on mac.

All the devices are running on latest version of the OSes (iOS,iPadOS,tvOS 17 and macOS Sonoma) and Infuse (7.6.4523).


Again, these are SDR colors purporting to be DV content. Find better sources, people.
