... and exactly 3 years to the day later I see that tvOS does have the ability for third party interactions via AVKit.

Dean, can you put this on the 'research list' to see if it's possible?

No, it seems they now allow interaction from third parties to get the metadata, including from apps like Netflix, and control everything.

I have no idea if this is something that could be done, or if this is the right information, but this is what I came across:

https://developer.apple.com/documentation/avkit

There are a couple of threads over on reddit of users creating apps with it.

Just got my applets 4K setup, the hdr looks amazing. I think this might be my new preferred viewing device. Any integration greatly appreciated.

Can you get yours to work with the 4:4:4 chroma? I have to run 4:2:2 and it still throws the 'black screen with audio' every now and again. I guess I have to upgrade my HDMI cables.

But 100% agree, the Apple TV 4K HDR has a simply stunning picture.

That link above looks like it's a framework for running programs on the device itself.

Yeah, I wasn't sure if that was the right link. There is talk of it over on reddit - someone is creating a third party app that integrates various devices directly into a touchscreen interface (not automation, just control). The Apple TV 4K was included.
