Hi, for anyone else interested in the resolution for my issues above, it was something weird with the device mappings in the server.
I had a situation where attempting to download a TV Show or Movie would do nothing, but register in the 'Download & Sync" dashboard against a different device (an iPhone!) as "ready to Transfer". I also had a device listed as "Unknown Device" which had the same content I was trying to download listed as "ready to Transfer"
First I removed everything against all devices having problems (and the 'unknown device') in the Downloads & Sync board
The 2 devices that were experiencing the behavior above, needed to be removed from the devices list also:-
Then when re-launching the app on android, downloading TV or Movies would now say 'Downloading' (not syncing) and complete as expected.
I'm not sure why it was having issues with device mappings - maybe android updates affected the device ID according to emby - dunno.
No idea why download attempts on a samsung were registering on another (remote) users iPhone though
