I briefly tried this on both FireTV 4k and Nvidia Shield and it fails to
run on both of them. The first time it run it went to the settings
screen so I  set the backend IP and then backed out to a screen that I
think showed just two items for 'Settings' and 'All' nothing else.  Now
when I try it it just crashes back to the Home screen each time. Don't
have any time to debug but curious to why it's failing.

Does this use the Services API?

What Security Pin does it use (I have several BE's on the same network
so set a different pin on each one, I don't use the default  '0000'
could that be it?

I do have over 4100 recordings could that be it?
