Bit of a bug on Shield (yes I finally bought one) and maybe other devices.

 

Somehow after watching a bit of TV and then going back to the main page I got the Live TV row to overlap the Continue Watching row, so the Live TV row is kind of half a row down from Continue Watching but the images/posters are overlapping. Sorry don't know how to get a screenshot.

 

Kind of like this...

 

EDIT: It goes away if you just scroll up and down though.

the overlap issue on the shield has been happening for a while. for me whenever i return to the home screen the options row slides under the previous row

 

edit: like the new home screen minus the menu. what i really like is the white highlight box. much better than the green one

 

not a fan of the dark theme under lighting effect. would really prefer a more solid and even backgound

While I'm here I think I'd really like the Android app to look like this...

That was from Chrome. Not exactly a 10 foot interface though. Still, you don't ask, you don't get...

Just popping in to say that I think it looks great @ebr! I didn't see this thread before I updated the app earlier tonight and then opened it up and was surprised as hell! I played with the options and could get the side menu to come and go away. I really like it much better without the side menu there. It is more like the ET app now!

 

By the way, I REALLY like the mock up by @arrbee99 above! That looks pretty slick.

Ah yes, it does look to be the web interface. Did you do this with custom CSS on Emby?

Yep. Happy2play and others actually kindly come up with stuff, all I can do is copy it.

 

I think its this...

 

/* ----- Change Movie Active Thumbnail Image Size ----- */
/*#itemDetailPage .portraitDetailImageContainer {
     display: none; !important;
}*/
 
#itemDetailPage div.detailImageContainer.detailimg-hidemobile.portraitDetailImageContainer {display: none; }
 
First bit gets rid of the poster, second bit stops the first bit getting rid of actor images when you click on them from a movie.
 
Its from the second page of this...

Hi @ebr . Great job.

 

Interface on Shield looks more clean.

 

Interface on Shield looks more clean.    The first time that i ran this version the left menu was not there, when i browsed down to "APP settings" and open it and look for any new setting, i close it down and the left menu return back and hide fine when is needed. 

 

I founded better color in the background, the hard black background is gone (thank you), now is a dark gray and looks more elegant, and clean, now the hard contrast of the background with the posters is not extreme which is a lot of better to watch that more clean new look

 

I'm not fan of the square for the posters. The backdrop option while browsing is not working but i'm still thinking if it is necessary, maybe with this new good look and feel and without hard color in the background is no longer needed.

 

Pastel or soft colors works better for main themes like this, definitivetly looks more elegant. Another more lighted themes can be available for those that like the neon's effects or so. 

 

I ask for leave the background on the main window of the  movies/TV shows etc. transparent and apply some overlay where the text is, ONLY. Maybe in that way that improve the look of the backdrop and looks more elegant, because if the backdrop "fanart" is to dark sometimes and it is hard to watch were some overlay is applied to all image, and i know that many of us like to see that image very clear on our big screens.

 

Great improvement.

 

Thanks.

Looks great, but I prefer posters over logos.  I have bunch of bugs to iron out on mine now that I'm using the beta server, I'm waiting for it to be the stable release before I start playing with it.

 

I think Emby already has the ideal 10 foot layout and that's the horizontal view on the ipad.  It's nearly perfect.

Eric - just installed on my 2nd Shield and immediately turned off the "highlight rectangle" option, but when I backed out, the left-hand menu was displayed.

I didn't enable the "Enable Home Screen Fast Lane" option, but looking in the settings, it was enabled, so not sure what's happening.

I have submitted in-app logs (user=Master).

Closing the app and re-opening it, still causes the left-hand menu to be displayed.

I have now disabled that option again and all is OK again.

Just thought I'd mention it.

You can choose logos or not in the app settings

Not yet, been working on other things. I'll plug the shield in when I get a minute, and take a look.

That detail screen layout has text that is WAY too small for a 10' interface.

 

However, a re-design for the detail screen is coming soon as well.

I know this is way off tangent, but been meaning to point this out numerous times, but too lazy to so so.  I have most of my movies from DVD rips, and a growing number from BlueRay.  Now I have ONE that is UHD (4k).  When I go to the main movie screen, I would like to see the details of Video codec and audio.  Hope these images explain my mumblings.

Oh, wait, this is a Fire...  I wonder if there is a problem with the older version of Android.  @maegibbons, you seeing any of this?

 

Just tried the Fire TV, switching on and off cards and fast lane.  Not seen any issues.

I believe I've brought this up in the past and Eric says that you only get basic info until the full details page is displayed.

It's the same in the Next Up TV and Latest TV/Movies rows as well.

Any chance of a screenshot maybe ? Don't know how easy it is to get one off an iPad though.

Sounds a bit like what I got on my Fire TV. But then Maegibbons doesn't get it on his Fire TV. Haven't had it on my Shield, but then I haven't tried fiddling with the show/hide side menu thing either.

 

What is this Fast Lane of which you speak ?
