    Got all the hardware together that works with an Apple TV 4k. Hopefully this documentation helps someone out!

    Hardware:
    Software
    Misc Notes
    • I tried a digital HDMI grabber: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B088K997RR - It works, but is laggy. The hdmi-->rca-->grabber is a lot faster. I'd say the HDMI grabber was ~.5sec slower. I wonder if a pi4 would do better?
    • Was not able to get ws2812b lights working straight from Pi. Although I hear it's buggy, I still wanted to try, but no luck.
    • I was able to get 4:2:2 color to work on another 1x2 splitter, but it was a little buggy. Video would cut out or not reach the Pi. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07WR7KP1B
    • For anyone less knowledgeable about installing .deb files for Hyperion.NG - the easy way is to install the full desktop image for Pi, hook up a mouse, keyboard an monitor and use the UI to install the .deb file. :)

    I have the same HDMI grabber, and it had a 0.5sec latency too even on a Pi4.
    I managed to fix this by reducing it's resolution and decimation in the config page.
    Works like a charm now ;-)

    Would you mind telling me what values you set these too? I am also having the 0.5s delay.
