[Android TV/Fire TV] Display favorites on home screen
Automatically add items from favorites to the home screen so users can have quick access to media on remote servers. An example of how this can be implemented is demonstrated with DLNA Channels
Currently a user must open the VLC app (sometime a big effort in itself), scroll down to "Browsing", scroll right to the favorite servers, then open the desired server.
Non-tech users can use this feature to find media on a remote server with little effort. A user (after turning on the TV) is presented with the home screen. Tiles for each of the VLC favorites items will be presented to the user on it's own row.

This is a mock-up of what the end result could look like (Amazon Fire TV). Preferably the tiles will also include a preview of the media as is currently don in app.
For Android TV the behavior would be same/similar.
