Per this thread: https://emby.media/c...l-of-libraries/


Please consider adding the ability to be in TV mode with vertical scrolling of the list of libraries.

Why: Other than preferred esthetics, I use a Logitech K400 keyboard/mouse combo to control the system, displaying on a TV. The mouse portion of the keyboard is a trackpad. It works great for moving around the screen, but I cannot use it in any fashion to scroll right on the screen. I have to use the keyboard arrows to manipulate the interface. Not terrible by any means, but not intuitive particularly for users who don't know that they have to arrow down to the library row first, or they're instead moving left and right on the top row (Home, favorites, user icon, etc) and get confused as to why the library list isn't scrolling.


Basically, I would like the icon size of the first picture because of distance from the TV screen, but the layout of the second (desktop mode) picture for the home screen for ease of use and being able to see a larger set of libraries all at once instead of having to scroll.

I don't think this is a duplicate as I'm specifically concerned about the home screen, but it's possible I didn't quite understand some of the other feature request posts.


Thanks for considering!

Hi.  The problem with that approach on a TV is that most people are not using keyboards.  They are using a remote control that only has four-way navigation and, when you display the libraries like that, you are now forcing people with a long list of libraries to have to click past a bunch of rows to get to anything else on the home screen...
