I love this app… I have just switched from using Kodi on 4K media players where DV seemed a long way off if ever.
One thing I have noticed is that all of the MKVs I have that are from PAL DVDs show as 480p in the UI when they should say 576p…
I normally have .nfo files in the directory but I get the same display for files I haven’t yet placed in their own directory and have been scraped automatically.
Even playing these MKVs in their entirety does not rewrite this information.
Heh, I even tried adding the following into the .nfo which I had to do in Kodi for 4K files… but it had no effect.
<fileinfo> <streamdetails> <fps>25</fps> <video> <aspect>1.85</aspect> <resolution>576</resolution> </video> <audio> ...
Here is the mkvinfo output for one of my MKV files showing the framerate and resolution:

So where is the media info coming from? Is it a bug in the Apple APIs?
720p, 1080p, 2160p all appear correctly.
FYI I am using NFS mounts for my media from NASes running EON Solaris with zfs providing NFS services.
My Apple account is on the Australian App store in case that makes any difference.
Apple TV Language is set to English and the region to Australia, Time Zone is Melbourne.
I just noticed that The January Man is available on Blu-ray so this problem will go away soon
