It's good if you decided to use stereo HiFi with Projector. You can just connect project to Hdmi from Apple TV and do airplay to your stereo. No more long hdmi needed.

Is there any APP I can download/install from Apple TV App Store to watch Chinese drama from China/Taiwan/Hong Kong ?
So far I found Gt TV Taiwan APP but it required account registration with Taiwan SIM card number only, So this App for Taiwan country only, people in other country cannot register account.
Because unless I go to Taiwan to buy a SIM card for my smartphone than only I will have a Taiwan phone number to register an account in Gt TV website.

Other APP I found on Apple TV that play Chinese TV are from Christian Organisation that is not what I want to watch.

Or is there a way to install APPs from iPhone App Store into Apple TV?
Because there are a lots of APPs from iPhone App Store can play Chinese drama from China/Taiwan/Hong Kong.

32Gb is enough. If only have itunes Malaysia is worth since you can buy 4K movie with Dolby Vision. I hope your tv support Dolby vision.

I think HBO only can subscribe through Astro.

Everything buy from iTunes did not store locally, you are streaming back and need internet everytime you watch it.

32GB is enough unless you plan to install plenty of games.

New APTV4k 32gb user here. Love the Netflix with Dolby vision and Dolby Atmos playing both together on my LG oled B6. However found out that infuse can play my 4K remux atmos hdr movies over local NAS, but where is the atmos? Looks like this is the biggest drawback to become the best tv box.

On the other hand I had 2017 nvidia shield too, local USB and Local NAS playback was perfect supporting all 4K hdr Dolby Atmos. But this box Netflix streaming sucks. No Dolby vision no Dolby Atmos.

On the other hand, the above 2 don't have any 4K disc player, to make a complete home theater sources, Xbox 1 S/X is required.

Conclusion, there is no 1 complete box that consolidates all 3 above to become the ultimate 4K HDR Dolby Vision Dolby Atmos movie source yet. Sad that we need to have 3 devices at this point of time.

But the convenience of streaming outweigh the 4K disc. All my Blu-ray disc is wasted. Unless you are videophile or have band internet connection

Agree blueray disc can give that edges for videophile and audiophile. But its going to be a waste aftee a few years and you need a storage space to keep them. Guess that I will not opt into phisical disc and good with APTV4k and Nvidia Shield.

Yalo.

They is no perfect box.

But lucky the Infuse still support up to 7.1 output as LPCM just can't have the Atmos, they do is different there as I got few Dolby Atmos 4K UHD Blu-ray and I have the Remux version as well, it is not like heaven and hell different but they is different there.

Hoping support on local playback of TrueHD Atmos is not possible unless Apple support it. For local playback of Dolby Digital Plus Atmos do support in MrMC apps. Currently Infuse not support yet.

No player is able to passthru Dolby Atmos in TrueHD due to Apple didn't put the support and Dolby Atmos the metadata cannot when thru as LPCM.

Apple TV 4K only support Dolby Atmos in Dolby Digital Plus for the moment and only change if Apple change it.

You only can listen up to Dolby TrueHD via LPCM.
