Hello, I searched around so I hope this is not a repetitive question.

 

I am new to Emby (love it by the way) but this may be a Shield issue or a Android TV issue, as the same doesnt happen in Windows or in my Samsung TV.

 

I will post pics to explain my question.

 

When I go in the Movies section and view all my movies the thumbnails show all within the screen frame and i have to scroll down to view all the movies.....however, when I go to the Collections folder all the movie thumbnails show sideways....so in order to view the movies i have to scroll sideways....

 

So the question is....is there a way that the movies in the Collections folder show like they show in the Movies folder (all in the screen)?

 

Thanks for the help.

Hi.  Not at this time because Collections can have items of different content types so it will show multiple horizontal rows - one for each content type.

 

It is assumed that your collections don't have so many movies as for this to be much of a problem :).

Yes, the different technologies have different ways of being able to display things sometimes.  If you create a collection with both movies and series in it you'll see what I mean.

This is a problem on the Amazon FireTV and Fire Stick as well. iOS devices, however, do not show collections in a horizontal row only. Would much like to see this changed to a full screen view format of collections for the FireTV devices, as some collections I have are rather large and this makes viewing them cumbersome. Thank you.
