Right. It is fixed in the beta of the app.
Well gee boss, thanks for that super helpful response and link showing me where to get the beta
For those looking, here you go: https://emby.media/c...n-beta-testing/
-Click the "Android TV App" link and follow the instructions on the page on the page to sign up (make sure you are signed in to google with the same account you use for your shield)
-Go back to your shield, click on Apps, then Get more apps
-Scroll down to "My Apps" and look for an update for Emby for Android (they say it can take a few hours, buy I was able to get it within 30 minutes by going in this way)
I'm now on v. 1.7.18g Registered (as of today, March 5, 2019), and trailers are no longer crashing the app.
They are still showing in the wrong order in the "Latest Trailers" section however, showing in reverse alphabetical order and starting with movies from 2017, although I'm aware from a different thread that this is a sorting issue that needs to be corrected.
