So I finally upgraded my living room ATV to the 4K model so I could begin leveraging that sweet 75" 4K TV that I picked up a couple years ago. Naturally, the existing ATV4 will be moved into the guest room where the technology stack is still firmly entrenched in the HD days. I don’t forsee any 4k upgrades for the guest room any time soon, and as such, I need to find an effective way to manage my streaming library now that it will contain both 4k and HD content.
That being said, I’m unsure just how to go about doing this. Initially, I thought about storing 4K content and HD content separately on my NAS. However, the Infuse Library folder (which is what we use most of the time) is smart enough to aggregate all of that content into one place. While this method will work fine on the 4K stack, I suspect the HD stack will struggle if, for example, an unsuspecting relative just wants to watch a movie and has no idea said movie is in 4K which the HD TV cannot playback.
Have any of you encountered this challenge? If so, how did you go about addressing it? Thanks in advance for your inputs.
