What I actually want is full audio bitstreaming - but I suppose Apple could do that with the current model with just a software update.

That is most likely a licensing issue (cost) and not a hardware issue considering that that used to have bit streaming

Are you saying Apple can’t afford it?

Devices like the nVidia Shield bitstream everything. So, does every PC (like my NUC which I use in preference to my Apple TV for TrueHD and DTS-HD).

I didn’t include it in the poll because I assumed everyone would want that :slight_smile:

Apple can afford everything :slight_smile: but if only 5% of users might use something they aren’t going to want to pay for everyone. That could change if they have a pro specific ATV that has smaller marketshare

ATSC 3.0 tuner and a DVR function?

Not sure if that would be a thing as there are countries (Canada being one) that don’t really do over the air broadcasting in a meaningful way. In Canada pretty much all TV is IP based.

Well, the market is large enough that all major TV manufacturers are developing TVs with ATSC 3.0. I’m sure the market would support another device that provides ATSC 3.0 decoding.
