Now running the latest version, thanks. I'm still having trouble with sync under a variety of conditions but have narrowed it down a little. Hopefully that helps some.
On any screen / section which is unpopulated and shows a default 'refresh' message (the TV library before it's sync'd, a show which has no seasons sync'd yet, a season with no episodes sync'd) then it's hit and miss whether a swipe down to sync will register. I would say 'impossible' to swipe down and sync but I have managed it a couple of times. Once the default message no longer displays (so a show has seasons listed for example, even if it has failed to sync episodes) then swipe down to sync within that show works as expected.
When a list is empty and you swipe down, the spinner seems to appear and immediately disappears, but
the sync is in progress, and will update the list when it is finished. I understand that the spinner disappearing is very confusing, but afaict it's a bug on the standard "pull to refresh" control and i haven't gotten around to mess with it.
What i suspect is happening is that you pull, it starts syncing, and if you continue pulling it will issue more sync requests. Eventually the first one ends and refreshes the list. Try pulling down once, ignore the disappearing spinner and wait to check if it refreshes the list.

Do you have a very large library or is your media center somewhat limited in performance? I have set it up to sync incrementally, but it still can take some of time if the library is large.
Anyway, i'll keep this in mind, and think about ways to make it better.

This can happen. Kore is not very "aggressive" in maintaining all the info synced (meaning that when you're browsing your library it is mainly using it's local info, instead of going to your media center), but i guess this can be bettered.

When in the remote control screen, have you considered hijacking the Android device volume keys to control Kodi volume? This is done in a number of other Apps (Squeezer for the squeezebox players for example) and works really well.
Using the volume keys requires more permissions (control hardware keys i think), which i'm not particularly fond of. Nevertheless, i'm not oposed and i'll consider it. You could open an issue on github, to keep track of it and see if more people would want that.
