Rebooting Apple TV 4k and 4

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/02/28

Every now and then, when an Apple TV falls asleep with an app running, it wakes up without the app showing actual content on HDMI.

I’ve seen this quite a lot with the NPOStart app, but other apps suffer from this as well.

It happens more often with an Apple TV 4k than with an Apple TV4.

When this happens, the TV thinks there is no HDMI device connected to that source any more.

The solution is to reboot the Apple TV without active screen output:

If the remote refuses to connect, then you have to pull the plug and reinsert it; either the power or HDMI plug will do.

Luckily this workaround I did not have to reboot my TV, as the only two ways to do that is to pull/reinsert the power plug, or to perform a [WayBack] How do I perform a Factory Data Reset on my Smart TV? | Samsung Support Australia.

Via [WayBack] What are the size restrictions for the VCL controls like TPanel and TPaintBox.? Are they documented anywhere? I’m talking about placing these on a TScro… – Thomas Mueller (dummzeuch) – Google+:

Some Windows messages use the LPARAM to carry width and height, which allows only 16 bit for each.
