We've been listening to your feedback, and plan to have a quick 4.0.1 update available soon - well as soon as Apple allows. Wink

Here's what's coming in 4.0.1

  • Much faster metadata fetching (about 5-10x times as fast depending on the video type)
  • Infuse Pro badging in Settings to indicate when Pro features are active
  • Prompt to resume or start from the beginning when playing videos
  • Skip forward/back 10 seconds by clicking right/left edge of touch pad
  • Auto-load details when selecting item from lower shelf (on movie/show details page)
  • Double-tap top of touch pad to quickly return to the top of the poster grid view
  • Separate Dolby and DTS passthrough options (for Sonos Soundbar users - and anyone else who has a device that supports one but not the other)
  • Fixed audio cutting out when navigating through Playback Settings (with passthrough enabled)
  • Folder artwork overriding for TV series
  • Option to clear recently watched list
  • Fixed issue with selecting share protocol type in some cases
  • A handful of other minor fixes

Update 12/12: 4.0.1 was just approved, and should be rolling out on the App Store shortly. Smile

This is great James, thanks for the quick work! Wondering if the bug where tv shows beginning with "the" are sorted as starting with 't' rather than with the second word of the title (eg The League sorts with 'T' rather than with 'L'). I reported this during the beta.

Hi Jake,
I do not have that problem. Are you sure you have the correct corresponding language settings (of aTV)?

This is very welcome. I have two more suggestions. Coming from Plex ...
1. Make me click less. When I hover over a Episode or Movie (or favorite) switch directly to the details. Then it would be in style with the overall  TV "usage-rules".
2. Can you chose to ignore sub Folders in Movies? Collapse all Movies into one big (list view?)-stream when I Chose my Movie Folder? Would again make me click less and make the overall design more consistent.

Thank you very much. Great App!

I'm very happy with this app. I'm a former user of ATV flash (black) and then I switched to mac-mini + Plex server + NAS. The problem with plex is precisely the need of a dedicated server and the transcoding when you need subtitles. With this app I can discard the server and back to use ATV4+NAS. Please please keep the improvement of this app, even if you need a extra tip for it Wink

I read somewhere in another post that it has been about a week for most approvals for tvOS...think James posted that. Maybe sooner for minor updates?

Am I the only one (around here) who misses the music playback functionality?
i have a bunch of FLACs which were played by Infuse on ATVFlash black, but INFUSE4
only tells me that there's nothing to see. (which is literally true, however there is
something to listen to Smile
can we expect some improvement in this area?

Weird! I only have this problem for TV shows, movies sort correctly. All my language/region settings are set correctly... I wonder, are all of your TV show files in one single folder? I keep mine in a hierarchical structure (TV Shows --> Name of show --> Season x --> files) so perhaps the folder names are not sorting correctly? Just a guess.

Hi James,

Currently there's no way to tell which version we are using, whether it's 4.0 or 4.0.1. Would it be possible to indicate the version no. somewhere in the Settings just like what you did for the iOS, please? Thanks and love the app.

I must say the this app is the reason for buying al AppleTV 4th gen. As long time PLEX user, I think this surpasses it on every possible way.
My suggestions. I think (sorry if already requested) they are not included on next 4.0.1 update:
- Sort files by Date, Name, Folder, Year, etc... More options.
- Delete files.
- To be able to sort/order the Favorites folders.
- Music theme on series folders.

Thanks so much!!

Hi all, i use INFUSE 4 and i have proposal for improvement:

  • the option to turn on/off indexing of only selected folders
  • when viewing a library with no index please show the names of all files, now only displays the name of the file where the "cursor is"
  • the option to view the library as a line / grid
  • the possibility of at least one skin (black)

Bug:
- apple screensaver run over played files

This app is great, thanks to this app I bought apple tv 4, until then I had no reason to change my old ATV 2...

It also depends on time of year, the team(s) at Apple also get some free time in december so expect this to vary. Keep in mind the team have to approve about 30.000 apps/update per working day.

I saw that, but it will be possible to edit the FAVOURITE folders, not the movies themselves...

I have seen during 3 separate movies, that the image freezes, but audio and subtitles keep playing.
The kick it back on track, I have to rewind, just a little bit, but it always returns until the movie has finished.
I have not seen the movies twice, to confirm, if it happens the same places.
(I only use mp4 containers.)

It works fine on ATV Flash Black though...(Because I have seen the movies there long ago without interruption)

I'm somewhat confused. Will this version fix the problem that when you try to play any audio over AirPlay to an AirPort Express (say) connected via analog to an old hifi, the movies freeze and won't play? I posted a new post about this but it didn't get a reply and it got lost.

It's not AirPlay per se because it works fine from InFuse on an iPhone playing to the Apple TV (and that on to AirPlay) and it's not the movie format, network or server because they work fine when you disable AirPlay on the Apple TV. Movies play fine in other Apple TV apps when the Apple TV is set to send audio via AirPlay but consistently fail with InFuse. I suspect it might be something to do with Dolby (which I want to disable) but can't tell. Is this a known problem, and is it addressed in 4.0.1 please?

Will the problems, which are mentioned in the Dolby/DTS Passthrough Issues topic, also be solved in this update?

After being on the Beta, I decided to stump up for the Pro version, a little disappointed to see that some of the issues I reported in the beta are still not fixed in the version I have now paid hard cash for.

TV Metadata is badly messed up, all my TV series are in the same format for example ....

Ballers/Season 1/Ballers.2015.S01E01.mp4

No matter how many times I clear the metadata and reload it the main folder for Ballers (and many others) will not show a thumbnail, even though clicking in gives correct thumbnail and Season 1 title, but main series link stays at the top out of alphabetical sync with the rest of the TV shows which are all in the same format some work, some don't. All worked fine on ATV2.

Then there are TV shows that instead of the program Title the main folder shows as "Season 1" has the correct thumbnail, and when I browse In it has the Season folders and all the correct metadata inside. The TV shows like this are the bottom of the alphabetical list because they are all called "Season 1", "Season 2" seems to be the title of the last season in the folder.

Seriously missing the 'watched' indicator, this I know is planned for a version down the line but with a large library finding what you have and haven't watched is impossible.

Happy to share a video of the above behaviours (like I offered in the beta).

Kind Regards

Plasma

EDIT: Messed up folder names like 'Season 1', and 'Season 6' are in the IOS app too, so it's not specific to ATV. I will post a picture tomorrow, can't figure out how to add a screen shot from the iPad.
