I'm having three issues managing our Apple TVs with JAMF 10.15 and tvOS 13.
The Conference Room Display payload is no longer blocking the App visibility. When this payload is deployed, the apps that are installed can be accessed, but the AirPlay window remains overlaid on the bottom right hand corner.
I can't find a way to hide the Apple Arcade app. The bundle ID is not available in the "restrict app usage" section of the restrictions payload. (Update: bundle ID: com.apple.Arcade Thanks @Brian)
We are experiencing an issue with the sound jumping to 100% when an AirPlay connection established from a laptop. This was not fixed with 13.2.
@fsjjeff I updated to 13.2 yesterday. Doesn't seem to fix things. If I double tap the home button on the remote, the App-switching view displays behind the AirPlay window overlay.
We are also experiencing an issue with the sound jumping to 100% when an AirPlay connection established from a laptop. This was also not fixed with 13.2.
Band-aid to issue #1 (Conference Room Display Mode) for tvOS 13.2:
From the Apple TV menu:
Set Sleep > Never and Screen Saver > Never
Turn Conference Room Display > On and select a wallpaper
Then from Jamf you can deploy Conference Room Display. It still does not address the volume issue but should prevent apps from displaying. You can also then set home screens to match if you use an iCloud account and then move the settings icon into first position (or at least move AppleTV+ out of first position). Lastly, you cannot apply these settings from tvOS 12, update, and then have it working — the update to tvOS 13 removes these settings.
As of 1-6-2020, the latest public release version of tvOS (13.3) does not fix this problem. I also hit on the idea of putting the Settings app in the first spot on the home screen, but after I did so school-wide I still had ads showing up on random Apple TV's, so the result was inconsistent/not useful. What I finally did was install a Configuration Profile on all our Apple TV's that had a Restrictions payload restricting the apps to ONLY the Settings app. That is the only thing that has definitively stopped the problem. My teachers now have no Apple TV apps, and I'll have to enable them on a case-by-case basis if they need any. But at least we now have no inappropriate or highly distracting ads interfering with our students' learning. Apple needs to fix this.
