Hi James,

Have you fixed the issue where audio will not play over Airplay connected speakers? This is a MAJOR issue.

When will the library view be available? This is good for people with more than one hard drive. Just like the one with atv2.

Awesome thanks. Question. James can you tell me what pixel dimension would be optimal if I create some favourite artwork .png's in Photoshop?

1920x1080 would be recommended.

So then it would appear that, since, James, you are acknowledging other questions, the Airplay audio issue has not been fixed. Very disappointing. The lack of clear communication around this issue is not good.

It's on our roadmap, but has not yet been implemented. Sorry.

Very disappointed in Infuse support re: Airplay Delay

Even though I think that Apple should have an internal switch, for devs the AirPlay speaker delay support is one of the easiest fixes in Tvos and this problem affects a multitude of users.

On Infuse, do we have to again wait 3 weeks to a month for 4.0.3 for this fix, or will it be longer?

Hopefully, 4.0.2 will fix other video performance delays, so when Airplay speaker delay is fixed, I will be able to use Infuse Pro. Until then, $10 paid is lost money.

EDIT: Firecore response received ...Barring any complications, it should be resolved in the next update for Apple TV. Comment #47/48.

Well, thank you for that, James. It's at least good to know that a fix is coming. However, saying that it's on the roadmap sounds like you consider this a feature, when in reality I would classify it as a bug (showstopper).

I agree. A waste of money for me. Airplay is a basic feature that every other app seems to handle without a problem. Very surprised it wasn't fixed on new update.

When I saw DTS-HD support for the pro version I purchased without looking on here - £7.99 I didnt have to spend on kodi for apple tv 4 (yes you can sideload it with a dev account) - I understand DTS-HD is a licencing issue but why advertise it on the app store as such ?

Suggestion: add a button to turn on the NAS from the remote i.e. send the magic packet WOL (wake-up-on-LAN).

With versions before 4.0.2 I don't think you can.

Maybe its good if people report when its out in their part of the world. As of today it still has 4.0.1 in europe store it will probably still take a few days maybe longer because of the holiday break apple review team had.

Honestly, I love Infuse (I use it on ATV2, on iPhone/iPad, and now on ATV4 as well). Thank you James for this.

But now I join my voice to the request about the "sound thru Airplay compatibility bug". To my knowledge Infuse is the only ATV4 App which is not compatible with the ATV4 feature. Thanks in advance for the correction.

Am i missing something when i ask what this has todo with infuse on the appletv ? It seems to me to be a bug on the ipad/iphone version. I never tested it but will do so since i also have it installed on the ipad. But they 'send' the stream to the AppleTV OS not to the infuse app installed on it. Btw to James and the other developers i do think its interesting in the future to think about how these apps can work together over the 2 platforms by for example sending the url from one app (say ipad) to the appletv version (like netflix seems todo) when they have access to the same share so mirror mode is not used but direct playout is triggered. Or that you 'mark' a movie for download to your mobile device for traveling and the ipad version downloads all of them. And lastly syncing of the meta-data (doesn't do that now).

Daniel.

@Danielo
Yes, you are missing something. The ATV4 has the ability to stream its Sound/Audio to an other Airplay compatible system (like an Airplay compatible HIFI Amplifier, or an Airport Expess linked to an HIFI system). This functionality works with (all?) other ATV4 Apps (eg Netflix etc.), but currently not with Infuse, as also earlier stated by some other posters in this thread.

Indeed after posting (and doing some testing) i was wondering if people where talking about that. But what has me confused is why would people want this ?. I guess when they have a hdmi display but want to reroute the audio to a receiver that is not hooked up? Seems a very unstable way to me since using the signal inside the hdmi using arc or some spitter/receiver makes much more sense. Can you give me the use model for this where this makes sense for so many people and no better solution is availeble (i am willing to test have many toys i can play with in my setup).

edit: i tested this and as far as i can see its because they do not use the 'default' video player apple provides and most of the others are. If for example you use infuse on a ipad and send the signal to a appletv4 you do get the option and can send the signal to other airplay receivers. We then also see the return of features like showing preview while scrubbing. I am not one of the developers but my guess is since infuse wants to have their own video player/stack more than others since it will give them advantages in the future (or even already now) they will loose features that are part of apple's own default player. It takes time to reimplement these themselves or in worse case might not be possible at all since the api would not allow it. A example would be using PIP on ios that is limited to only the video player apple provides.

Happy if infuse devs correct me if i am wrong, and i am partly guessing here Smile

There is no 3.6.2 for the ATV4 - that is the version for iPhones/iPads. The current version for the ATV4 is 4.0.1 wit 4.0.2 coming as soon as it gets past Apple.
