Neither of my Rokus show Collections, despite the fact that they show up and work fine via the web interface. Is there something I can check, as this has been going on for a while and I keep forgetting to ask. Thank you.
Roku Does Not Show Collections

I have experienced this as well. The Collections tab/icon does show up on the main menu when first entering Emby on Roku; its just that sometimes when you enter into it, it buffers for a long time and stalls out saying "0 of 0" collections and nothing comes up. It doesn't behave this way using the web interface - only Roku for me. In general both collections and playlists are very slow and intermittent for me on Roku. web interface always seems to behave normally for everything.

The Roku only has a Collections Row under Movies menu (scroll down). I will have to check again when I get a chance, but I think the only issue is the restriction on the displayed items on that row.
@speechles, does the app ignore the top level Collections entry?

To expand, I DO get the Collections category "Icon" on the main page when I log on, but once I enter the Collections, it spins and eventually just says 0of0. This does not happen via the web app, only Roku.
Can you please attach the emby server log? thanks !

I can't speak for PuffyToes but the way mine are created is to "add to collection" from the options pull down ( ... ) of each movie that I want to be in the collection. Then either to an existing collection or create a new one if that is the objective. I haven't tried to use the feature on Roku recently since it wasn't working. I just now ignore the icon on the home page assuming that it doesn't work. I also noticed that music playlists will sometimes act similarly on Roku. If I go directly to the playlist icon on homepage it will spin for several minutes and then die saying 0 of 0 playlists found. Evidently playlists and collections are handled similarly hince why they behave similarly on Roku.
@PuffyToesToo How did you build these collections? Are they AutoBoxSet plugin automagic? Built in the web app? Using legacy [boxset] tag on the folder?
It would be useful feature if it worked. Since it doesn't work I just ignore it.
Thanks for trying anyway. And do keep up the good work. All that you guys do is appreciated even if we forget to say it sometimes.
