@hjertnes I bought a Toshiba Fire TV last summer for the convenience of having one device to use for Pandemic Summer Backyard Micro Cinema, powered by a Jackery portable power station. I could hook my Apple TV gen. 2 up to it, but I've been managing with the ATV app. This is a good reason to go ahead and do it...or buy the latest Apple TV. #rationalization
If there had been an actual Apple TV television set, that would have been my first choice! But if it existed, it'd probably be way more expensive than the set I got.
I kind of worry when it's time to buy a new TV, I just want a plain dumb screen (that can decode over the air TV signals) that I can connect to the Apple TV. And several HDMI ports etc but not anything "smart"
