Because I was stupid enough to purchase an Apple TV again.
I have several nVidia Shields, all work perfect, I decided to get the new ATV4K and give it a whirl, to my discust Plex wants to transcode H264 to H264 and AC3 to AC3, and the picture is definitely lower quality when this happens.
I can use Infuse and it plays direct, perfectly, and I think there app is better the the Plex App in almost every way.
If I try and force the Plex App to direct play, it just refuses to play at all.
I had the Apple TV 4 when it first came out, and this bug was around then, its been a couple of years now, what the hell is going on with the development, if its funds you guys need, then charge a small fee for the app every time they release a new TVOS.
I don't mind handing over a few dollars if its worth it. But personally I would rather give the money to the Plex team instead of the Infuse team as I have been a massive user of Plex for many years.
The app should be able to play any format known to man and should be able to pass through any format of audio, no transcoding should take place on higher end hardware.
Looking at the quality off their App, If infuse raise enough funds, you might see them releasing server software that could end up being more popular then Plex.
