Emby Theater Desktop mode doesn't scaledesktop mode scale dpi
Posted 24 August 2019 - 10:40 PM
Just switched from Plex and loving it. but I have an issue with Desktop mode.
I have Emby Theater 3.0.9. When I switch to Desktop mode (from the default TV mode), everything is terribly small on the screen. It tells me it somehow disables DPI scaling. I have my PC connected to a 4K tv and native windows scaling is at 2.5. The TV mode works fine, but I much prefer the Desktop mode with the side panel and actual menus (instead of them being full screen).
I tried settings custom scaling from the windows properties for emby. It works fine until a video starts playing, and video is shown in the upper left corner of the screen.
Any help would be appreciated.

Having the ability to adjust text sizes is something we can add in the future, but scaling the UI is not something typically seen in a desktop app.
That would be nice. It looks like all images actually scale just fine, it's the text that's the problem. Thank you
I wonder if you just want vertical mode, instead of horizontal?
Tried that, but not my cup of tea. I might have to run it for a little bit to get used to it though. Thanks for the suggestion.

I don't have either of those. Could you test desktop mode with a 27-32" 4K or 1440p monitor and report back?
I did with 24" 1440p and it's not too bad, though it is a lot smaller that my desktop for example. on a 4K it would be unusable though, but I don't have one to test.
