Slow category navigation on Sony Android TV via Video app

I have this setup:
- servio 2.0 running on iMac Mojave accessing a WDMYCLOUD NAS
- Sony KD55A1 running Android 8.0

After installing the first Bravia Android Oreo version (and subsequent update) the stock Video app connected to serviio is extremely slow to navigate the categories supplied by the serviio server. You go through the folder till, i.e., Last video played and than try to go back and it takes ages only to show the folder.
Obviously I thought about a bug in Sony software (and it could be since it is still fast through a Sony BDP S5100 player), but than I realize that using a different DLNA server (twonky supplied directly by WDMYCLOUD nas) it is still very fast in the navigation (although with fewer functionalities).
I've tried to reinstall serviio, resetting the creation of metadata since the new video app is displaying thumbnails also for folder to non avail...
Any suggestion? anyone as reported it?

Hi, I also have the same issue. There seems to be a kind of incompatibility with sony android devices. My Bravia TV and Xperia Phone suffer this issue with the stock app. Maybe a profile topic? I use the generic DLNA Profile

I don't think it's an Android issue. My Nvidia Shield runs on Android, and I have no problems with slow navigation when using Kodi or MrMC. It might take a few moments to load each category when I select it, but that is usually based on the number of titles that have to be loaded.

Panasonic ST30 Plasma, Samsung JU7100 4K TV, Sony BDP-S3500, Sharp 4K Roku TV, Insignia Roku TV, Roku 4, Ultra and Stick, Nvidia Shield, Yamaha RX-V583 AVR.
Primary server: Intel i5-6400, 8 gig ram, Windows 10 Pro, 18 TB hard drive space | Test server Windows 10 Pro, AMD Phenom II X4 965, 8 gig ram
