I have Emby running on my Synology DS418.  When using the web interface or the Emby app downloaded from the Microsoft store, the folders of my home photos and videos all have the folder name on them.  But in the Roky client, I just see a folder icon, and in the upper left hand corner of the screen it shows the folder name.  This is almost like flying blind, as you can't see any of the folder names unti it is selected, and the name displayed in the upper right.

 

Is there any way to have the folder names displayed on each folder like the web client, in the Roku app?

Yeah, we need to do better in that area. If you press the asterisk/star key on the Roku remote it will take you to the toolbar. On the toolbar choose the option with the gear/cog. That will have a setting called "Show Titles". We need to do better and have those default to the correct CHECKED or UNCHECKED for things. Once you CHECK or UNCHECK it will be remembered. But the initial state these are before you pick them is where we need to do better. We need better defaults for things on the grid. I agree. We will get there. You can have folder names under each folder it is possible it just isn't the default. Apologies.

I don't seem to have the "Show Titles" option.  I looked at all of the menus, I don't see it.

Hi.  This will all just work as you expected it to with the next release of the app or the current beta.

 

Thanks.
