    I transfered an app from my phone to Y series 32'' TV using Send Files to TV app. The app name is FoFi TV. It doesn't display in the app drawer. When checking for apps in settings, it's installed. To access that app, I should always goto settings. Is there a fix to it? Or can I create a shortcut to open that app?

    Unfortunately, sideloaded apps don't show up n in the default launcher.
    Try using dashboard or atv launcher.

    That's not true. In my app drawer, you can see ThopTV. It is also a sideloaded app. Tested with multiple apps.

    It works with particular apps and doesn't with many apps. I have 20+ apps sideloaded and only a couple of them show up in app drawer. That's how Google designed it and that's the reason Sideload launcher/ATV Launcher apps have made it's way to the play store to help users who sideload apps.
