Tv won’t identify Apple TV

My ps4 and Nintendo switch appear normally with their names, but for some reason my tv does not want to recognize my Apple TV.

It’s not a major problem, but it would be nice if it would show up as “Apple TV” with the logo and everything instead of just hdmi 1.

 

Thanks for the help

Hi @Justanother_Jar , I'm Raphael P from Spain, I had similar problems with a customers but with the Play Station and with X-BOX.

 

You can set HDMI name from menu and rename as you want. The problem with last mencioned person was that TV do not saved after power off and reinit again. Check with the same cable too for verify hdmi compatibilities cable versions.

 

Check if you can rename and test if it works after restart your TV :thumbs-up-sign-emoji-modifier-fitzpatrick-type:

This is what fixed my apple TV recognition issues:

 

Unplug the apple TV HDMi from the TV. 

 

Power off and unplug the Samsung TV and keep off for 10 seconds. 

 

Power on the Samsung TV.

 

Reconnect the apple TV HDMI to TV and turn on by pressing a button on the apple remote. 

 

The TV will then go back through the identification process but will now detect the device as an apple tv.
