Hi,

I'm a new user of this app. I installed it a few days ago on a Arch Linux. The client is Nvidia Shield TV.

Some menus are displayed wrong, for example:

 

5bed81a17f188_20181114_183805.jpg

 

The "HECHO" (DONE) button is above the "Vista Predeterminada" (Default View) option.

My language is Spanish, perhaps the problem is the length of the literals in the Spanish translation. Can I change the language in the Android app?

 

I also have problems with the "Show next preview" banner shown at the end of each chapter, it's too big. It should be less intrusive. I also don't know if it's a language problem.

Can I change the font size?

Thanks.

Regards.

Hi.  What version of the app are you running (shown on the app settings screen)?

 

Thanks.

And you feel the up next panel is too big...?

You are correct that your display issue on the menu is related to the translation.  I'll have to figure a way to handle that.

 

Thanks.

Yes, it isn't a problem if that panel is showed when the chapter is ended, above credits, but if the TV show doesn't have or has very few credits, the panel covers part of the screen and is uncomfortable.

I don't know what tool you used for the translation of the application but it should limit the number of characters for each literal. In this, if you need it, I can help you to translate better from English to Spanish.

Is there any way to change the language in Android?

Thanks.

I don't see any way to make it any smaller and still useful but you can disable it showing in the app Playback settings page.  You can also dismiss it immediately when it pops up with the "back" key on your remote.

Yes, you can set your language and region in the device settings.

Yes, I knew, but I meant inside the application.
Thanks.

I am trying to help with this problem by shortening the translations so that they are the same (or almost) length as in English.

We may still need to adjust the UI in some cases to make sure they can handle text that is 2x the length of English.

Now it is better. It shows well all options and the button.

Although the buttons (in all app) seem too big to me.
