    Not sure if anyone picked up but looks like the new box supports DV and Atmos

    The current box does Atmos with at least some apps.

    The AT&T TV box has their custom UI. It doesn't run the standard Android TV UI that regular retail devices like the Shield TV or Sony TVs do. So it won't be affected.

    Just did a quick check. As of today it seems only HBO Max, but I remember seeing Prime and Disney doing it in the past. Today those don’t show any Atmos nor does Netflix.

    YTTV just added 5.1 (which AT&TV already has), and a 4K tier for an additional $20 a month ($10 for 12 months), the 4K tier also has unlimited streams. Hopefully AT&T TV adds this as well (and hopefully in time for the Olympics).

    My Osprey boxes got updated last night to Android 10 and the TV Kernel Build is 6/15

    so as far as I can tell two of my 4K TVs are no longer showing forced HDR. One is so need to play with that

    I will have to take a look when I get home. My son said something about his box rebooting. How can I tell if there's forced HDR or not? Is there a setting?

    My TV tells me what HDR mode it is in if any when it gets the signal initially

    Very interesting. Android 10 absolutely solves the forced HDR issue. Didn’t think ATT was planning to update the Android OS version on that box. Assumed they were saving it for version 2

    So my two Vizios are no longer reporting they are getting a HDR signal.. My LG OLED is... I swapped the boxes but the same result.. It never bothered me on either TV since the settings can correct.. But its odd

    I have a Vizio as my main TV, so that's good to hear.

    Awesome. No forced HDR, and when I select a 4K HDR program on YouTubeTV is switches to HDR10. And it doesnt have that obnoxious Google UI. Glad I bought two of them. They work even better now. A little slow compared to the Shield and built in Android on the TV, but worth it. I like the remote better too. I am using it on the Sony X950H which has AI upscaling built in, and using the Shield on the Vizio since it does not have built in AI upscaling. Only think I havent figured out, with no ATT TV account, the options are APPs and Settings. When I select APPS, it shows all my apps, but I have not figured out if there is a way to rearrange them.

    I don’t think any of the newly released 4K VOD content on YTTV is advertised as HDR, is it?

    Does the new Android version on the Osprey now support Dolby Vision?

    No and I doubt they ever pay for the licensing on it for that box
