Comments on New Home Screen in 5.0
Ugh. I'm not liking the new layout in 5.0:
1. It seems to have been built around Media Types rather than Libraries. Thus, if you have multiple Libraries for a single Media Type (i.e., Both Music and Audio Books as Music Libraries; or eLearning and Home Videos as Videos), it is now a multi-step process to get to the proper library.
2. You can't add "TV Shows With Recently Added Episodes" to the Home Screen.
3. The Home Screen shows Thumbnails instead of just an icon. So if you have a library (say....Adult Films), you can't add it to the Home Screen without potentially graphic images on the Home Screen.
4. This would have been better if they let you navigate to All XYZ (where XYZ represents a specific Library), create a desired view by adjusting Filter, Sort, View settings and then adding the current view to the Home Screen as an icon. With this, we could recreate the old Home Screen, if desired, and/or customize the Home Screen however desired. Instead, they've forced specific Views that Plex deems useful.
Anyone see any workarounds?
