    "legacy DirectPath" uses the old API for mounting, since the new API still has two bugs.
    The new API is only available on latest v6.4(7).18+ FW.

    1) new API does not support server names, only IP's. This will be fixed in the next beta.
    2) new API has issues with NFS paths, that are not directly under root. So "/home" in /etc/exports will work, but not "/home/movies". We try to figure out why this works via old API, but not in the new.

    PS: So atm to get NFS working via new API, you can just export simple paths like "/home", "/mnt" or "/exports" and setup the jellyfin library paths based on this. Instead of exporting multiple dirs like "/mnt/movies", "/mnt/series".

    There is a bug within the app for the "My Media" section, but since it applies to the general AndroidTV app and not only to your App I'm not sure if you can fix it.

    On the homescreen I have selected "My Media (small)" but it displays "My Media" instead:

    On the server the "small" option looks like this:

    Also, the "App Theme" has no effect, its always the same theme.

    Yeah did bring up this issues here:

    PS: What i can try is make the images/layout smaller, so its not as big for the "small" case.

    Ah okay, thanks! Weird response though from Jellyfin dev, though...

    I guess its also not a bug that changing theme has no effect ;)

    Nope, the app has only very limited theme support, so have no clue what the theme option in the app even does.
    That's because the AndroidTV app is not based on the same web-tech as the server web-client or the normal Android version.

    Is there a specific reason/benefit to do so?

    Can't answer this, could be historical reason's after forking from Emby or maybe the AndroidTV app is newer and they wanted more modern/faster tech, like pure java/kotlin.

    Turns out its rather easy to fix and also did annoy me.

    I will just add two Ui scale slider settings:
    • one specifically for userView/collection, which includes the "My Media" items
    • one for all other home row types
    This way users can customize the size of there main home view.

    Scaling works great!
    Is there a way to disable the age rating on the home screen?

    I tried only .3 and it didnt helped, i took another release and there it works without transcoding. Hope you can find in future a good solution for transcoding:)

    Thanks for the clarification.

    I just updated the firmware to v6.4.20. JellyFin app is now able to play media with "legacy DirectPath" switched off.
