Can you please change Plex to open straight to the home page again?

I am officially tired of opening Plex and being greeted by blank page that says "No videos found". I get it, you have a new feature, that's great, but I don't use it and it's pointless to open to it by default instead of the home page.

    Hi guys. We've confirmed there is a bug. The app should only default to local videos if there is nothing else synced to your device. If you have a synced item, it should show you the home page. This will be fixed in an upcoming update.

    Agreed. What's the point of a Home section, if the app doesn't start with it?

    Agreed.

    I am not interested in being a beta tester in this situation. It is marked as a feature in beta yet it always opens in this mode.

    That shouldn't be happening. Can you develop a little more? It's always selecting the local device instead of the latest server you chose?

    Whenever I open the android app and connect to my local device (as opposed to my plex server) it shows me the local videos section. I have to manually select home from the left hand menu.

    I just want it to default to Home whenever I select my local device.
