Apple today seeded the fifth beta of an upcoming tvOS 11.2 update to developers for testing purposes, a week and a half after seeding the fourth tvOS 11.2 update and a month after the launch of tvOS 11.1.

Designed for the fourth and fifth-generation Apple TV models, the tvOS 11.2 developer beta can be downloaded onto the Apple TV via a profile that's installed using Xcode.

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 tvOS 11.2 also adds new features, bug fixes, and security improvements to the tvOS operating system.

Update: Apple has also seeded a new version of tvOS 11.2 for public beta testers.

Good story bro. Guess you forgot you're in an apple forum. Troll.

There is a setting that lets you toggle between the Home button showing the home screen or the TV app if this is the issue you are having.
Nope currently about 70% of the time pressing that button does nothing at all. no Home or TV app... so that needs fixed. it worked without a hitch before this update. But good lookin out for sure.

I've been using the beta and it still hasn't fixed something that's bothering me. Sorting of TV Shows ignores the sorting field in iTunes. For example, "The Blacklist" is sorted under "T" and not "B". I've checked and the sorting field in iTunes is correct, says "Blacklist". Seems like an easy fix, but it's persisted since the release of tvOS 11 through all the betas.
