airtv mini 4k dongle still no fix?

Post by Bkfinest »

hey, I've been patiently waiting for months. still no fix. I've requested the toggle switch for hardware/software deinterlacing option for months. This is the reason I've requested it so that I don't have to bother. Am tired of bothering for something that I shouldn't have to. I have to TVs that I cannot watch live tv and rely on YouTube and Netflix because you guys have not fixed the issue. watching live tv is not possible on these 2 tvs because channels view choppy and weird. and you said you were fixing it and that didn't forget about me and have not fixed it till this date, how can you forget? please either fix it or add toggle switch so that I don't have to bother

I think this got lost in the shuffle. For a while there was an idea for a system that would allow us to toggle this either individually for customers or even for whole platforms/devices/regions, and be able to do this without waiting for an app update. However, with all the development projects going on (mainly ATSC 3.0 related stuff), such a system isn't going to be ready soon.

Of course, none of this would be an issue if the manufacturers of these devices would fix their MPEG2 hardware decoding.

I will try and push for some kind of toggle. I have to convince the boss, so we'll see.

Get couple of Chromecast with Google TV. They are cheap ($49) and don't have to worry about this kind of problem.
