Everything is working well - where are you noticing the sluggishness? particular apps or just overall?

Doesn't seem quite as snappy going between apps, menus, etc, but not experiencing any problems with playback.

No Atmos on the ATV Gen4 and still no Siri on either the Gen4 or the 4K is annoying.

The lack of Siri on the ATV4 this far down the track where every other Apple device supports it is unforgivable.

 

I will NOT be buying another ATV4, and I have already bought 2 Kobo boxes from China.

On the 4K only, not the Gen4. Unfortunately, my Gen4 is what is hooked up to the Atmos Receiver.

Bugger I only have the gen 4 as well, even though Dolby amp and optic out from TV sound is only pcm yet Dolby through my blue ray player. Only thing I dislike is the sound on the gen 4

I find it odd that people don't have Siri on the APTV4. It has been working on mine for the last couple of years. I don't recall if I did anything to get it going. Perhaps changed the location settings and then changed them back. Obviously wasn't much of a drama.

I have that problem all the time.
The phone app in the control centre is pretty good, but it’s hard to beat a physical button remote for controlling without looking.
