Are the repos up and running yet?

EDIT: Yes, the latest and beta repos are up. :)

EDIT 2: The beta repo points to latest, so don't use both latest and beta at the same time.

I'm still seeing disabled volume controls when watching TV with this build.  Specifically, the volume is grey/x'ed out and doesn't respond to clicks, but volume works normally for all other audio and video content. It's kind of jarring because the TV output is at maximum volume. 

This seems to happen regardless of the selected audio output device; I get the same results with the various hardware direct outputs or using, for example, the pulse audio output.  It also doesn't seem to matter which volume setting I use (I normally use internal volume).

Confirmed.  I will look into it.  In the meantime other volume modes (Application Volume, System Volume) might work.

With the 27.10 build I can no longer see any of the Streaming Options, I get "Web page viewing is not yet supported on this platform".

This was available in MC26.

Thanks

The streaming tab is working normally for me on Debian Buster with 27.0.10 FWIW.  Maybe a problem with the download of the integrated browser?

That was tested on all platforms.
What are you using?
It's likely to be as mwillems says, missing the browser download.

Entered Theater view, then switch to other program, MC27 Linux will display blank white and not responsive. This is while remotely control MC27 in other Windows 10 PC. On Linux Mint 20.

Do you have "on screen instructions" enabled?  I'm on an unsupported operating system, and theater mode was giving me a white, unresponsive screen, until i toggled "instructions..."  off.  I know it makes no sense, but I haven't seen a white screen since.

Just set the on screen instruction off, but still got the white blank screen.
Tried disabling anti aliasing, no difference.

This likely means there is an issue with your OpenGL support on your video setup/OS (what are they BTW?)
Turn on logging just before entering theater view.
Enter theater view and exit it (F10 or F11 IIRC).
Then check the log or post it here.
