Is there a way to get the Android TV app to use the ARTIST tag for browsing instead of the ALBUM ARTIST tag?


This is a feature that works remarkably well on the web app, and on the Android phone/tablet apps.  For some reason however, I am not able to get the Android TV app to allow browsing by the artist tag.


I understand that for many casual listeners out there this may seem like a trivial matter, but for music buffs (or in my case....music junkies), the difference between using an artist tag vs album artist tag can be pretty huge; especially, if you listen to genres of music where collaborations are a way of life.


Please forgive me if this matter has already been brought up elsewhere (I tried a search but couldn't find it).  Right now I have a "test" server that I'm using to work out the kinks and learn the system before setting up the final deal.  Thanks in advance if there's someone out there that can point in the right direction!

Right now, it is only showing Album Artists.


Answer to your next question: I'm not sure but probably at some point :).
