2017 Apple TV 4K - using the Kodi fork - MrMC review

 Just tried. When I put the FTV Stick 4K remote into pairing mode (hold Home for 10") my Mac sees it as a Bluetooth device called "AR" as does the ATV 4K. I can pair it - but it doesn't do anything when it's paired.  (It pairs fine with an nVidia Shield TV and works nicely - even Voice Control - but they are both - generally speaking - Amazon devices)

My previous FTV Pendant 4K remote showed up as 'Amazon Fire TV Remote' (not 'AR') on my Mac but my ATV4K didn't see that at all?

Too bad, it would make for me the perfect remote for the ATV, especially for my child and wife.

So search continues...that remote was the ko criteria for the rest of the family here.

I even tried to use a Raspberry as a Bluetooth Keyboard connected to the ATV, but couldn‘t make it pair with the Xiaomi aftermarket remote.

There is Harmony remote support (click)

The Apple TV can learn the button presses from most remotes. I use Harmony if I'm not using the normal remote, but if you have an old remote to some random device you never use, the Apple TV can learn the buttons and you can use it.

@wrxrasy & @timstephens24: Thanks for the replay and the support. I know about the learning capabilities of the ATV and the Harmony support, but I‘m afraid that I want to make it too perfect. Infrared is too slow once you get used too the snapoyness of a bluetooth remote and the Harmony has too many buttons...I know, I know, wanting too much here I guess Big Grin

 v16 with player code from v17. Some bits of v18 too.

The only thing I personally really miss when using MrMC, because it is Jarvis v16 based.
Is the Smart PVR searching / auto scheduling and recording functionality that Krypton v17 now has.

Maybe that extra v17 PVR functionality can be backported to MrMC as well ?

Hi,

I want to change a little bit my system, but not sure if Apple TV is the right way.

My current Setup looks the following:

Server:
UnRaid Server with Emby

Client:
Sony Bravia 55XD8505 (Android TV with Amazon and Netflix App)
Yamaha RX-V681 with 5.1 Speaker setup + 2x Height Speaker (no Atmos or similar)
Odroid C2 with Kodi and Emby Plugin
Harmony Remote

What I do not like on the current setup is the follwoing:
1) Android TV on the Sony. Buggy and slow
2) Bigger Upgrades on Odroid Kodi. After last update (Kodi 8 to 9) I had a long downtime until I got Emby Plugin again working

*) Can the latest Apple TV support me with the issues? Can I use Kodi with Emby Plugin incl. 5.1 DD to Yamaha Receiver?
*) Is there still a limitation of the Amazon Prime Video App that it is not able to send 5.1 to the receiver?

Best Regards,
Johannes

It would be perfect were it not for Atmos/DTS-X being offlimits in bitstreaming.
For troubleshooting and bug reporting please make sure you read this first.

Hi,

Atmos DTS-X is not an issue today, because I am using SOund Programs on my Yamaha AV Receiver. The RX-V681 is not able to support Sound Programs and ATMOS/DTS-X at the same time. Therefore I would need to invest a lot of money for a new AV Receiver, which is not an option today. So I am fine without ATMOS/DTS-X.

My only concern is, that I heard about an issue, that many Amazon Prime sources are now only 2.0 instead of 5.1, is it because of a bug of Apple TV or the Amazon App. But this would be really a bad situaton.

Br,
Johannes

And one last question:

As I am using Emby Server: Do I need Kodi with Emby Plugin on the Apple TV or can I use also the Emby App?
I am currently using Kodi on my Odroid only for Streaming from the Emby Server.
