  • Updated

Overview

Favorites and Lists are versatile options which can be pinned to the Home Screen for browsing movies, TV shows, and other videos.

Favorites vs Lists

Favorites and Lists both allow you to quickly access content, but each are a little different.

On iOS/macOS: Lists are available and can be pinned to the Home Screen.

Removing Favorites & Lists

Infuse comes with a few default favorites and lists, but these can be easily adjusted by following these steps.

  1. Identify the Favorite/List you would like to remove.
  2. Navigate to that section in the Browse (iOS) or Library (Apple TV) menu.
  3. iOS: Navigate inside the category, and tap the 3 dots to remove the Favorite.
  4. Apple TV: Long-press on the category to remove the Favorite/List.
  5. The item will be immediately removed from the home screen.

For folder Favorites which are actual network folders, it's best to hide these instead of removing them. See below.

Hiding Folder Favorites

For Favorites which are links to folders on your network device, cloud storage, etc... you'll most likely just want to hide these instead of fully removing them, as fully removing folder-based Favorites will prevent Infuse from being able to access the content inside.

  1. Identify the Favorite you would like to hide
  2. Long-press on the Favorite and select the Hide Favorite option
  3. The item will be immediately hidden from the home screen

To unhide Favorites which have been hidden, browse through Settings > Shares > Share Name and select the Favorite you wish to unhide.
