I see a comment that it's "already fixed". If so, is it in the latest Kodi nightlies?

No, just delayed until I can figure somethings out or someone else decides to PR it.

That's referring to something else, not the PR specifically.

On your home screen, just scroll down. At the bottom you will see something like "Customize Channels", click on it. Then you see all apps, which support channels and you can dis-/enable the channels individually for the apps. There you find Kodi and all the channels/smart playlists.

As above, go to Videos > Playlist > New smart playlist.... select Type: Movies and then create a New rule.

For this rule you'll need to select Date added and in the last.  In the text box type in the number of days you want to go back for when a file was added to the library.

Image

After you have added the rule, select:
Limited to       (whatever you want)
Order by          Date added
Order               descending

This will make sure that the most recently added item is displayed first.

Image

Now select OK and name your playlist.
 



Creating a Random Movies channel.

Create a New rule and select Play count and is (leave the text box blank)

Image

After you have added the rule, select:
Limited to        (whatever you want)
Order by           Random
Order                ascending/descending

Image

Now select OK and name your playlist

You should now be able to go back to the launcher and add each Playlist Channel.

Question about the Recently Added Playlist. When I look at the playlist in Kodi, the "order by"-rule is followed. But the order in the channel is diffrent. For example, i added a new movie yesterday, in Kodi it is the first entry, but it is the fourth in the channel.

Does someone have the same experience. I'm running the Kodi 18 Alpha 3, but also same bug in Beta 1 and the latest Shield version 7.0.2.

Found this thread thank you Tinwarble very good guide. I was able to add a couple channels the one I'm having trouble creating is one for current episodes. I was able to create a playlist that shows my in progress TV Shows by doing the following:
Type TV shows with the rules of Title contains all my TV shows and In progress true.

This is close to what I want but it shows the TV shows thumb and not the most recent episode thumb on the Android TV launcher screen. It also opens up to the current season screen instead of the current episode.

I have tried different episode settings and rules for hours and can't get a Netflix style continue watching shortcut for the next episode. I was hoping someone who has already done this could throw me a bone and post a screenshot of their next episode smart playlist or a short step by step walk-through on how to set it up properly as I am stumped. Thank you.

Hello, I'm very new with my Nvidia Shield, but long years experienced with Kodi.

Since long time, I can only create intellegent playlists. The function generate smart list I never saw since long time in Kodi.
I checked different skins and can't find generate smart list.
Is it important for additional channels to generate conseqent a smart playlist? Or it doesn't matter if a smart or an intelligent
smartlist is used for channels?

I use the newest Kodi nightly build.
I see all my playlist for adding channels in the Shield, BUT...they are all shown as empty, even they work pretty good in Kodi.
I rebootet the Shield several times, without any effect...the playlists are shown as empty.

What should I do?
