By now, you probably know the basics of the new Apple TV and, if you haven’t, it’s worth your time.
The Apple TV can be connected to the TV via a single HDMI port, and that HDMI port supports both 4K and UHD video formats.
It also has its own remote, speaker, and remote control.
The $1.99 HDMI adapter that you need to hook your Apple TV to the living room is the $300 “iFi-UHD” version of the HDMI adapter, which is meant to be used with 4K video.
While the new $300 adapter doesn’t support 4K, it does have support for the most recent 4K HDR standards: Dolby Vision and DTS-HD Master Audio.
If you want to use a 4K version of 4K content like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, or HBO Now, you’ll need to pay an additional $60 for the $200 4K adapter that the Apple TV already supports.
That’s the reason the AppleTV needs the $1 billion HDMI adapter to work with Apple’s own 4K format.
The HDMI adapter’s only other feature is that it’s HDMI 1.4b compliant.
HDMI 1, which means it’s capable of transmitting both digital and analog signals, is the most common type of high-definition video signal.
The HDMI 1a standard was developed in 1997 and is still widely used, but it was recently introduced as an upgrade to HDMI 1b.
The newer HDMI 1 b standard, which requires the use of both analog and digital video, was developed by LG in 2018 and is widely used.
It turns out that HDMI 1 and HDMI 1x are technically not two separate standards.
HDMI 2, which has a longer list of features and more advanced video encoding, is also technically not a separate standard.
That means you don’t need to worry about needing the new adapter if you want HDMI 1 or HDMI 1+ support on the Apple’s Apple TV.
The new $1 $300 Apple TV 4K HDMI adapter does support both HDMI 2 and HDMI 2a video, so it’s actually worth buying the $600 Apple TV 1+ adapter if your AppleTV has a HDMI 1 port, but if you don, the $2,299 Apple TV 2+ adapter will work with the $100 Apple TV, and the $10 Apple TV 3+ adapter can also work with it.
