Apple today seeded the first beta of an upcoming tvOS 11.1 update to its public beta testing group, one day after seeding the tvOS 11.1 update to developers and a little over a week after releasing tvOS 11 to the public.

The tvOS 11.1 public beta can be obtained by going to the Settings app on the Apple TV and navigating to the Software Updates section under "System." "Get Public Beta Updates" will need to be toggled on, and once it is, the Apple TV will download the beta software.

No new features were discovered in the first developer beta of tvOS 11.1, so the update seems to focus primarily on bug fixes, performance improvements, and security fixes.

The latest version of the tvOS operating system, tvOS 11 brings features like automatic switching between light and dark mode based on local time, Home screen syncing options designed to keep multiple Apple TVs in a single household in sync, and new background modes and notification support.

Not sure if this is new, but on the Apple TV 4K, I see the option for AirPlay 2 under the Developer settings. Screenshots below:

Hopefully this will solve the issues I'm having with the Apple TV 4K. Forced to reboot daily has it drops internet connection. It doesn't say it does, says WiFi signal is fine, but everything that requires internet download never starts, just spinning wheel.
I have the issues as well, but unlike the other person it seems to occur only when Ethernet is plugged in. Works for a few minutes then stops completely.
Maybe already tried this, but, have you tried restarting your router?
