Recently Aired to Home Screen

Hi guys,


is there any way to configure/customise either the web app or PHT to show recently aired within the home screen rather than recently added or on deck?

    +1 on this one. Shouldnt be that hard to integrate both opions. I could use both RECENTLY AIRED and RECENTLY ADDED to be honest, but the latest aired shows are usually more interesting to be notified about than that old favorite show that you recently added 148 episodes of. (ie. IT TOTALLT COVERS YOY RECENTLY ADDED so there is no chance at all that you see the actual ones you WANT to see on the home screen).

    I would also like an option to change viewing mode on recently added in plex home theatre. I would prefer a list instead of the poster-carousel-thingy.. canthis be changed? Im quite new to PLEX..

    I also agree. This would be an awesome feature.

    Yes recently added is not very useful to me. Seeing 40 episodes of one show on my homescreen is rather redundant. Either set it so you can toggle from one to the other, or add another option to have both (or all 3 in total).

    Bumping this ? It would be very helpful in the Plex Web......

    Agreed. And in the Samsung app built by @Orca

    Big bump, why isn't this possible? Atleast give us some options for the homescreen/discovery screen. Heck even unofficial apps can do this with a bit of tinkering.

    Agreed! This would make total sense now that Plex is my DVR. I want to see what was recently aired as soon as the app opens.

    +1 for adding recently aired. When I'm trying to decide what to watch the first thing I want to see are shows that have recently aired.

    Recently Added is kind of a workaround, but as others have said it often gets cluttered up with old shows that I've recently added to Plex. For example, I just ripped my Seinfeld and Futurama DVDs so now have lots of Seinfeld as recently added and the new shows are pushed off the screen.

    The iPhone app actually already has this feature if you go to a TV specific library and navigate to the Discover section.
