I know that the press release said that the new Apple TV app supports 1080p, however i am only seeing 720p. I've tried just about every popular anime series that offers 1080p and they all come across 720p. (Naruto, Hunter, Titan, etc) Also, just to head off questions, i realize the streams are adaptive. To confirm my suspicion, i used wireshark to analyze the connection to my AppleTV and confirmed that the only two streams CR is sending are 480p and 720p. (To be precise, the only two steams offered in the m3u8 file are 480 and 720) I have yet to see anything close to 1080p being sent across the wire or offered to my apple tv.

Are 1080p streams going to be added soon? I'm confused as to why 1080p is being advertised on the press release when 1080p isn't actually available or being offered.

Thanks!

Howdy!

So, just poked at the engineers about this:

Most of the encodes are in progress. Some series should be available. All of them will be available in ~2 weeks.

Hi,

Are these still working? Shows like Arpeggio of Blue Steel and Love Lab are not streaming 1080p through Apple TV over wired connections. You can tell because some typeset is off screen for Love Lab and Arpeggio seems to be missing some image at the edges. Thanks for looking into this in advance...

That sounds like your HDTV is overscanning the output from your Apple TV. Check your television's settings to make certain that is turned off. Unfortunately, the terminology used varies from one manufacturer to another.

I don't know why any HDTV arrive with this as the default for HD content, but many do. It is somewhat forgivable for 480i content, as it was designed for CRT televisions that had to overscan, but for HD content on a flat panel display it does nothing but omit valid content and soften the image.
