Navigating the world of AC4 licensing and support will likely be the biggest challenge for ATSC 3.0, and not just for us, but most ATSC 3.0 products that aren't a simple built-in tuner to a TV. We'll try to document as much as we can, and we will also explore any possible options we have on our side to enable options (possibly with existing hardware, but we'll see). Much like ATSC 3.0 is "rolling out", codec support for things like AC4 are rolling out, so this might be a problem that works it self out by the time ATSC 3.0 is "mainstream". That being said, we like being early adopters, and we will try to do whatever we can to get things working now.
yeah - is a bit of a pain.
At least my Sony A9G does have built in support - will try that later and see if androidTV on that at least supports the audio.
And as mentioned - newer LGs look solid too.
What are you guys using for your testing?
Main worry is AVR.
They rarely mention AC3 before.. so not clear if they do or will support AC4. For most part will be a DSP firmware update..
But those get less often the further you go back.
