Apple today seeded the second beta of an upcoming tvOS 11.1 update to developers for testing purposes, a week and a half after seeding the first tvOS 11.1 update and three weeks after releasing tvOS 11 to the public.
Designed for the fourth and fifth-generation Apple TV models, the tvOS 11.1 developer beta can be downloaded onto the Apple TV via a profile that's installed using Xcode on the Mac.
The tvOS 11.1 update appears to focus on bug fixes and performance improvements rather than outward-facing design changes, and no new features were found in the first beta. Should anything new surface in the second tvOS 11.1 beta, we'll update this post.
tvOS 11 introduces features like full support for AirPods, 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.
Update: Apple has also released the second beta of tvOS 11.1 to public beta testers.

Other then this, I have really not had any issues with the ATV 4k at all.
I'd rather NOT have Apple TV 4K encode everything with fake HDR, nor do the upscaling to 4K for every source.
Right now it takes 10-14 steps every time I want to switch from a 1080p SDR program, to a 4K HDR movie, and back.
ALSO: any chance they'll offer a 1080p SDR 24Hz option? It's the most common format for HD movies out there, yet for some reason Apple TV 4K doesn't offer it.
