What is Apple TV? Even among those who have seen or kept in the hands of the small box, not everyone is aware of its purpose and possibilities. Some call this "black box" set-top box, the other - a multimedia player, and still others believe that it is designed for the synchronization of the TV, PC and mobile devices from Apple. All right, because it is, in fact - the multimedia processor with ample opportunities.
In short, Apple TV - is a gadget designed for broadcast on the television screen of the multimedia data from the iTunes Store and other Internet services, as well as from your iTunes library on your computer and mobile user devices. He is able to transform even the most simple TV in "smart," adding his smart-functionality. Namely:
Play videos, images and sound using Apple TV can only streaming - the latest generation of devices can not be used for data storage due to the lack of high-capacity storage. Instead, the user is able to "rent" any copy of iTunes media collection, paying only for viewing.
The device is equipped with a built-in Wi-Fi-adapter, which receives a signal from a home router and connect your TV to your wireless network, so do not need wires and any further connectors for communication between devices. It is enough to install on your computer and gadgets software to sync with the TV - and your collection will open the Display directly to the TV (AirPlay technology). Manage the data you will be able to remote control, which is included in Apple TV package, or use a smartphone instead. In addition, the remote control can serve you a "mouse" to control the computer.
Features Apple TV in terms of performance are pretty good: without any delay even playing "heavy" video of Full HD and HD-quality multi-channel sound. This is achieved by Apple A5 fast processor, and flash memory of 8 GB, used as a buffer of streaming data.
Virtually all modern TV sets equipped with the HDMI input, through which the connection is made and multimedia consoles. Cable, however, set in there, so it has to be bought separately. There is another way to connect - via a component cable (video and audio).
To put Apple TV in action, connect it to the TV and plug it into the mains. Take the remote control to make some initial settings, and then connect to the Internet, you will be able to enter under your account in iCloud. All further action familiar to owners of Apple-devices that are familiar with the "apple" services. This, you might say, how to connect the console to the TV is completed.
Even in modern audio device can be connected using fiber optic cable. To this end, it provides a connector Toslink.

I would like a more detailed Apple TV4K (64GB) manual than the tiny guide provided with the Apple TV4K that I purchased. For example, how to get sound when selecting a movie preview before renting or purchasing. Also how to get information on the movie, actors & other movies, comments as we were able to on the AppleTV 2nd Generation which we replaced with the Apple TV4K.
Importantly, how to pause/play, get sound on movie previews, also info & comments about actors & other movies with the same actors that are available on this Apple TV4K; i.e. everything we used to be able to do with old Apple TV2.
I've gone to your site and all it gives us is the skimpy little guide which we already have and find to be of very little assistance, trying to do all the things we knew how to do with the older Apple TV2, etc.
Please HELP!! You guys are usually very helpful when I call Apple, but I'd like to be able to get a download of an actual manual on my Dell PC rather than trying to access the one on our TV since it is confusing to understand the method on the TV screen, etc.

the usb cable that came with the Apple TV doesn't fit into the Apple TV box. Is there a protective covering over the small end. I don't want to force it as something plastic will break.
