App for Android TV

I love serviio and am a registered user but one thing that sorely lacking is a Android TV compatible app. The current android app is next to impossible to use on Android TV. Can the dev please consider this request?

Re: App for Android TV

Android based TVs should have DLNA compatibility by default. But you can also install VLC or perhaps Kodi and use them as your player. My Shield players are Android based, and I use Kodi on them. I don't have an actual Android based TV, but there shouldn't be any issues using Serviio with them.

Re: App for Android TV

I agree with you, and it seems to me that this would be a great option. There are really few applications that could be combined with Android TV, and this was one of the main criteria for choosing a TV provider for my husband and me.

Re: App for Android TV

The Serviio developer does not create any apps or other add-ons. These are all third party applications. Frankly, I doubt he has time to even consider writing anything other than Serviio itself. :lol:
