Questions about MrMC on appletv 4K.

Post by Ozkhan1 » 30 Dec 2017, 18:56

Hello all,
Heard good things about MrMC on Atv4k.

I am currently using Kodi on Nvidia Shield but i keep hearing that the picture quality is much better on ATV4k, so I am considering a switch.

Wanted to get info on what I’ll be giving up and what I’ll gain.

I know nvidia shield is not perfect at the moment either.

Does MrMC on Apple TV handle the auto switching frame rates, hd audio/Dolby atmos and dolby vision, etc?

Only thing that Shield has over the AppleTV 4K is passthrough of HD audio. Besides that, it's equal or better as it does get 4k/hevc/hdr right.

Not the only thing!
Don't forget Shield has Youtube in 4k and HDR.....

Why Apple doesn't implement it I don't know... but the VP9 codec is free so no need to pay google anything.

I don't consider Youtube a serious source of video media content :)

Funny but we do watch YouTube quite a lot but really not worried about hdr.

Thank you @davilla, @golge77.

I’ll keep the shield and try out atv 4K with MrMC for the guest room. I know nvidia may fix their issues but Apple has been adamant since the Steve jobs days that they won’t ever support bitstreaming. Was hoping that would have changed by now but I guess not.

Cheers!

I haven't used my Shield in a few months. The Apple TV 4K is just a much much better device.

The 4K upscaling is on par or better than my TV. The NVIDIA Shield's is awful. Just look at the home screen in 4K...

Auto color switching. You have to constantly switch the Shield back and forth.

DV and HDR. The Shield only have HDR.

LPCM vs Passthrough... eh my receiver upscales really well with Dolby Surround and DTS Neural:X and I can't tell the difference with a 5.2.4 system.

Did you have to get new HDMI cables for things to be stable?

Nope, I didn't need new cables when I got the ATV4K, but I did had to get some when I got my receiver and a UHD player. You need to make sure they're 18Gbps.

Anybody tried using moonlight for game streaming? How well does that work when with atv4k and what game controller do you use?

I gave up on game streaming with it over a year ago. The input lag makes it meh.
