Hi everyone

I’m sorry if this has been asked before. Tried searching for the answer before creating this topic.

So wanted to give TV Show collections a go on the ATV, but they are not showing.

Am I missing some setting somewhere in Plex or Infuse or don’t they work on the AppleTV?

My Movie collections work fine.

Hope someone can help.

Thanks in advance :slight_smile:

It seems that Infuse doesn’t recognize Plex TV collections at this time so I moved your post to a currently running suggestion thread to add that feature.

Don’t forget that you need to click the like button on the first post in this thread to show your support for this suggestion! :wink:

2 years and still no tv show collections. What a shame.

Okay - Thanks. I just did. :wink:

Wow 2 years and nothing on that… that’s surprising. Guess I’m gonna have to live without that.

Oh well. Thanks any way :slight_smile:

Yeah, I hate dissing on people, but I’ve no idea how this wasn’t supported from the get-go, since it’s basically already implemented for movies (which is the exact same thing)…

Yeah it seems wierd that this wasn’t included.

Maybe there’s a reason for it though?

I find it odd that James hasn’t even replied to this topic yet. @james care to comment? Is there anything in the pipeline for this at some point? :wink:


I started this topic in 2019 and it did not get much love. With the recent interest I am encouraged it may actually happen someday. I have had to resort to using the Plex app for my TV & other collections but I would really prefer to use Infuse. @james it would be nice to get some feedback as to if or when this feature may get implemented. Thanks.

@james could we get an update on this? Infuse already offers the plex movie collections. Can The tv show collections not be added also?


Agreed, universal collection support as well as support for smart collections would be wonderful.

I too would love to see Plex Smart Collections implemented at some point. I have a number of “Directed by…” Smart Collections for my favourite directors which would work well in Infuse.

I would also love to see support for Smart Collections!

With customizable collections on the horizon, how difficult would it be to implement pass through of smart and other collections from Plex? @james :interrobang: Pretty please… :grin:

Any update on tv show collections?

Hey @james hope you’re doing well. The tv show collections and tv show smart collections you mentioned were being worked on for future release. Any rough release date? It’s the only thing holding me back from using infuse mainly <3

Came here to make this suggestion, found this thread and liked the first post. I see it’s “planned”, but I’m a little worried about the lack of updates. Is it still in the works?

I guess not? I see no movement on this in months. That sucks cause it’s literally the one last thing that would make Infuse great for me. That and retaining Plex collection sort order. Apparently that was working at one point over a year ago and then went away silently.

Can we get an update on this, please @james ? In Plex I have all the Planet Earth TV shows grouped together or Animation/Cartoon shows grouped together but in Infuse it’s a mess with shows scattered everywhere.

There is no way this doesn’t bother you if you have Movie Collections nice and organized and TV collections all scattered about.

looks like this feature is not planned yet. Upcoming Features (updated 1/28/23)
the thread was created almost 3 years ago :confused:

Note that this thread is tagged as “planned” so it is on the devs radar.
