Spot-on Pup, the UI is terrible, makes me nuts. Then along with that is the remote, I have the older one with the touch sensitive pad on top, what a piece of junk. This is my first Apple product and everyone talks about Apple being so user friendly but if this is any showing, I'd never buy another Apple anything. How the hell you supposed to search for anything with that stupid "keyboard" system?I can respect that ar!
Personally my main gripe is just user interface type stuff (for search, how you don’t know if a song is Atmos/Dolby Audio or not and overall layout of menus)
I’m also having a slight issue with their itty bitty remote; since my hands are sooo large, operating with my left hand (don’t ask what my right’s doing) it just feels awkward to use. And if they made it just a little bit bigger; they could add a few more functions like search & song info etc.
End Rant, other wise it works well for me, "no mono one channel only" problems but I don't understand what some are doing talking about Oppo's and OS update issues. AFAIK, that's not the way it was designed to work. You run a HDMI cable from the Apple TV box directly into you AVR and all should be well? Sounds like some are adding too many complications and middle-man coding ???,
My personal hope is that Spotify get's off their butts with the lossless program and has all the rest of the goodies the others offer. Best UI in the business plus their awesome catalog, I'd be happy to junk this Apple TV box. LOL
