Apple today seeded the first beta of an upcoming tvOS 11.2 update to its public beta testing group, one day after seeding the tvOS 11.2 update to developers. tvOS 11.2 comes just after the release of tvOS 11.1, the first update to tvOS 11.
The tvOS 11.2 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.
According to Apple's release notes, the tvOS 11.2 update enables a new AVDisplayManager feature for developers, designed to allow the device to automatically switch video display modes to match the native frame rate and dynamic range of video content.
The update includes support for switching the Apple TV 4K display output to SDR for apps that are GPU-bound when running in HDR and it re-introduces the Unwatched category in Home Sharing for Movies, TV Shows, and Home Videos.
Apple says it also adds new features, bug fixes, and security improvements to the tvOS operating system.

That said, a lot of people won't notice the difference, or if their TV fails to convert it properly, because they've been dealing with 3:2 pulldown for decades.
[doublepost=1509560251][/doublepost] Neither the 4K or 4th Gen will output 1080p at 24fps, and the 4th Gen doesn't support HDR, so what mode switching will it be doing?
Even with the latest PB update , my 4th generation Apple TV does not list the option for native frame rate.
