I didnt catch de point...did I overlook something?
There is no rules for folder shares , like Browsing Files through Folders. ( no database, just folder structure )
That was the question, how to create channels from Folders, not through database/rules.

New to Shield but long time user of Kodi.

My custom home channels on the shield are using the (16x9)  landscape/thumb images instead of poster images so everything is cropped off and looks just horrible. I am using the Aeon Nox skin if that makes any difference. Is there anything I can do to configure Android/Shield to use the actual poster or folder images instead?

EDIT: I have figured out that it will use the poster image if you don't have a thumb.jpg. I don't understand why it wouldn't default to using the poster image since it's the correct aspect ratio and fallback from there to a different image name.

Pls PR this or do you have it on git maybe? i use self compiled version anyway and I'd love to have that feature added.     
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:

 

@holydhaliwal I am really impressed by this video. I think every KODI user on Android TV wants this functionality. Please is there any progress with official Kodi integration?

Some of the metadata improvements were added but the devs nixed it for the v18 and only accepted for v19. Though in my opinion it was a cosmetic improvement rather than functional so should have been accepted for v18. In the future I am hoping this functionality is either moved to a plugin or at least controllable by using the advancesettings file so we can set if we want to use poster or background and what metadata we want to be shown

This would be amazing for me as well!

I use Emby with Emby for KODI plugin (i have a synology server). The "Play Next" channel never actually worked for kodi
And also, I notice, for the custom playlist channels to populate I need to leave KODI open in the background. On that matter, google assistant only works that way too. With KODI closed nothing happens.

After hours of mucking around, trying to find why icons would not show on the Kodi channels, such a simple fix.
This worked for both my 2017 Shield, as well as a Sony Android TV (clicking home on the remote from Kodi).
Thank you.

I can do the everything fine for movies and TV shows, but what about music? I've created a smart playlist and add the artists but the android detects the channel as empty, probably it has to do with the rules of the playlist right?

Is there a way to create a pvr list? How can I do it? Thanks.
