It would also be great if we could have the channels mix and match types of artwork like Plex does. For example, if we could have it show posters for movies but landscape art for TV shows.

Another great feature would be to have the channels display more info such as year, plot, run time and a star rating similar to how the Google Play Movies channel looks. IMO it looks a lot more polished and useful:

Exactly what I am looking for!
Would be grateful for suggestions!Smile

I actually ended up making these changes myself and will probably make a pull request on the weekend.

Sorry for the late reply! I do have it on git though I haven't had time to test it thoroughly. If you'd be interested in testing it out I can pm you (the version I use daily has even more customizations that are personal to me and my uses so I haven't had the time to test the more general version)

Here's a video preview of my personal branch:

Looks awesome, you're using landscape if available and poster as fallback?
I'm definitely interested in this one Smile

Have you used the app channels someone posted on the geforce forums. You can set any youtube subscription as a channel on android tv. Some even have video previews made me wonder if it would be possible to set movie trailers as video previews for Kodi channels.

The logic is it uses landscape if available and if the movie and tv show has a high rating, so as to highlight media more worth highlighting. It also uses different channel icons depending on whether it has the words "movie" or "tv show" in the playlist (can't remember the exact rules I set up) The version in the video is my personal branch which isn't on GitHub. I believe the only differences between what's on GitHub and what's in the video is the lack of branding (custom icons) and the lack of Play Next support, which I'm populating from Plex Kodi Connect nodes. I also added the ability to use favorites instead of just smart playlists, however, it uses the skin helper widgets script in order to achieve this, so it's also not in the general version on GitHub. I'll PM you.

Edit: Ah your pm limit is reached.

Everything in the video you posted above looks incredible, the custom icons, the leanback experience and even the skin. Being able to populate the channels with favorites is something I have been wanting to do for a while. "Play next" would also be fantastic to have. Did you manage to push the code to Kodi master? I would love to try your custom variant otherwise.
