    Just noticed this post.
    It's a made by Samsung box most likely.....although I have heard there is another mfg.

    Actually, if you go into remote settings of the Osprey box you can setup your TV and speaker system/receiver to turn on/off as well as volume control even if it does not setup automatically, it will show you all the mfgs.

    I just did it recently....might be a new feature that rolled with an update.

    I don't remember seeing all those options in the past.

    I have an old Samsung Plasma, a Mitsubishi rear Projection TV and a 21 year old Kenwood Surround Receiver all working perfectly with the Osprey remote!

    One remote one button on and off and sound control.

    One note: The sound on the Samsung Plasma TV did not initially work with the osprey remote.....it did turn on and off after I set it up manually and the box seemed to find the code....had to toggle the CEC setting on and off.....and then the sound control worked magically!
    Another AT&T mystery feature.

    I would hope their boxes remote would be able to do that. It’s sort of “jacks or better to open” functionality for streaming boxes.

    Is there anyway to turn off HDR/DeepColor on the Osprey box? I just started using it with my LG TV set and the Color looks really bad, color temp is off, etc. It seems to be because of “deep color” / HDR
    Any advice?

    No. It is a bug with Android TV. Google needs to fix it

    It’s weird, all the whites in my picture have a very warm cast. Bummer.

    You should be able to adjust your LG to tone it down

    I find that as long as the box triggers the HDR flag on my Sony TV, then it looks fine. But sometimes I will notice the colors are off and the picture is washed out like others have reported. In those instances, I notice the HDR flag didn’t trigger on my TV. I have to either reboot the box, or turn off/on my AVR to get it to look normal again.

    I read somewhere that it might be possible to use an HDMI splitter with a scaler switch to force the box to think my TV is only 1080p. Kind of cumbersome, but I may give it a try. I don’t use the box for any of the apps, so I don’t care about trying to get 4K/HDR on this thing.

    We had a similar issue with the HDFury Dolby Vision LLDV mod. It had a red push (warm) issue initially. We were able to alleviate it by making sure the TV was in its BT2020 color gamut mode instead of DCI-P3. You may want to check that on your display. Your Osprey may be sending BT2020 with its SDR to HDR conversion and processing but your TV could be in P3 mode.

    As I continue to evaluate ATT TV Now I have noticed many of times where my picture quality varies between and episodes I assume i may start off at 1080 then it throttles to 720 then bumps back up. Very frustrating as I have a 100mb fiber internet connection and i have the Osprey box direct connect via Ethernet and not WiFi. Is what I am experiencing Norma?

    Anyone here experiencing video breakups on many channels? Haven't seen this crap since being on xfinity and it's been happening for a week now. Internet has been fine.

    I no longer have AT&T TV Now so I can't answer this. However I've been making use of the box for streaming apps on my 4th TV since they enabled former customers to use the apps only and they are working fine.

    I’m seeing it on the ads only but not the actual shows.
