I have noticed that the Emby Theater for Windows (as well as the web browser playback) is lacking some of the UI elements/features of the Android TV app during Live TV playback.


Such as the mini bar style guide option, and the Also On bar, with the shows thumbnails.


Really would like to see these elements added to the Windows Theater and web player.


As it stands, in Theater and web, u can not view the Guide or On Now unless u stop play back entirely and navigate back to those pages. It just just has a much more basic toolbar at the bottom.


The bottom tool bar is much better in the Android TV App.


Edit: added screen caps of the GUI things in the Android TV app that I am referring to.

We're still working on unifying the designs of the two apps. Thanks for the feedback.

+1 on seeing these UI changes added to Theater.

Even the Roku app seems to have a better feel and layout.
