    Latest rumor is that the Amazon app will come to the ATV4/4K on October 26th FWIW. :)

    See anything about Amazon selling the ATVs again? This thing with Apple and Amazon is annoying.

    Same rumor provider thinks that ordering videos will be supported. But who the hell knows? :)

    Rich, dowload the byutv app on the ATV. Got a series called Extinct that I like and a quick perusal of the app shows quite a few things I might take a gander at. It is free to download and use.

    Ooops! I think Amazon is now selling them though I haven't actually looked to see. Some wag at MacRumors indicated they were.

    Thanx, Lloyd. I just downloaded it, would have never thought a series such as Extinct would be in such an obscure app. Just watched a couple minutes, looks good and the app is free. I do like shows like that.

    The rumor is the app is all set to launch, but they don’t want to release it till they release their new fire tv stuff so they don’t have people buying new Apple tvs because their new hardware isn’t out yet. Sadly, I believe that could be the case, but that would also mean it’s coming sooner rather than latter at this point. I’ve always figured before thanksgiving myself.

    I just put the ATV4K on the JS8500 and that has no yellow band. Why would that happen to one set and not the other? Settings must be pretty much the same.

    I preordered the new FTV box, supposed to ship Oct. 25. You're probably correct about the app and the "why".

    Probably raster settings in the tv itself...

    "Raster setting", what is that? Life is so complicated. Both sets were on factory settings before I used the ATV4K. They both have the same picture settings.

    It’s nothing you are likely getting into.. it’s a setting for the tv that deals with overscan and how it scales the picture to fit the screen. One would think since it’s a fixed pixel display that issue doesn’t exist, but that’s just not how tvs seem to work... the over scan is probably off, but since it’s not a problem on one tv but is on another, I am guessing it could be the tv settings. But it also could be the box’s settings, they both likely have those settings inside them behind some hidden menus that are very difficult to get into because they aren’t meant for the customers to ever mess with. To easy to screw up the tv.

    Pretty sure it's not the ATV box. I put the ATV4K on my other 4K set and don't see the urine colored (gross, I know, but it's the best description I can think of, it looks like somebody...on top of the set and it traveled down over the screen and that produced a color close to this) on the 8500. Both Sammys, both were on default factory settings. Both have the same settings now.

    That's my worry, why one set and not the other?
