option for QUICKLY viewing tv guide without stopping the video in emby for android app

currently this feature only exists on emby for android tv but is nowhere to be seen in emby for android. i would use emby for android tv but it keeps crashing every second time i open it. the other good thing about emby for android tv is i can see even more channels while in the quick view tv guide that is displayed over the video.

option for compact tv guide in emby for android app

 

currently there is no option to enable compact mode for the tv guide in emby for android. it only exists in emby for android tv. i would use emby for androiid tv but the app crashes every second time i open it on my beelink gtking pure android box. i would like to be able to see more channels when i quickly display the guide over my video without stoppping the video. i can only see 2 or 3 channels at a time on emby for android.

You said that the Android TV app was crashing, this is the generic Android app.

There is a guide in the video osd though 

that option that say "guide" takes too long to click on. its not fast. im asking for a fast way to bring up the guide. thats why i capitalized the word QUICKLY.

another issue on emby for android tv is the holiday theme looks unfinished. its only a red theme and theres no holiday backdrops or any backdrops or backgrounds for that matter. and the only christmas theme song is the jingle bells for 5 seconds when you  open the app. its more of a sound effect than a theme song. theres also no christmas recommendations tab.

Did you select that option in the settings?  If you did, do you have items with the genres "Holiday" or "Christmas"?

Do those shows actually have genres of "Holidays" or "Christmas" as seen in Emby?

the emby for android app you recommended looks good because it has a lot of options. originally i would have liked to use that but only if all of the features from emby for android tv could be broought over to that version. but for now emby for android tv is closer to where i want to be if only you guys could fix the crashing in emby for android tv so that can tie me over until features get added to the regular android version.

The name of the library is not going to come into play.  The suggestions are based on genres and, unfortunately, in today's world I think it is taboo to apply genres such as "Christmas" or even "Holidays" to media.  So, if the providers do not have these then, yes, you would need to add them.

See your other thread,  You are running an old version of the app and not on a standard Google device.  Update the app and you should be fine.
