Win HOW TO - Kodi 2D - 3D - UHD (4k) HDR Guide Internal & External Players
I should also add, I recently saw a review comparing the Apple TV 4K to an Oppo 4K UHD Blu-ray.

The Apple TV 4K was connected to 50 MB/s Internet connection and was streaming a 4K UHD Dolby Vision movie at 20-25 MB/s. The Oppo, by comparison, was reporting a bitrate of 50-85 MB/s. Two LG OLEDs were placed side-by-side showing the same content. The professional reviewer had a hard time seeing any difference between the two at a normal viewing distance. If he went up to the screen, he could spot subtle detail improvements with the 4K UHD Blu-ray. And some really dark scenes had slight macroblocking on the Apple TV 4K. But, even at half the bitrate of the Blu-ray, the Apple TV 4K held up pretty well. If you don't care about these small differences, you might not be the target market for madVR. Of course, poor sources would benefit much more from the Oppo, and the same would be true with madVR.

The Apple TV can't bitstream HD audio (so no Blu-ray Atmos or DTS:X) and it uses a nerfed version of Kodi (MrMc). But, unlike Android, the SOC processor seems to be pretty good. It likely uses a frame buffer larger than 10-bits to not lose any bits during image processing and probably includes chroma upscaling for 10-bit sources. It is not rocket science to get a good image to the display. But even the Kodi flagship, LibreELEC, cuts corners to get the image to the display in the name of being fast on low-powered hardware. That same image processing is present on the Windows version of Kodi, mostly due to lack of Windows developers to take advantage of the more powerful Windows hardware.
