    Why all the sideloaded mobile apps look like this?

    It is just a small area towards left where you can see app partially.

    Because the Apks you have used are for phone and not optimized for large Screens. Download Apks specific for Android TVs.

    Same APKs are working flawlessly on MI TV and Firestick. What different they do?

    Honesty everyone sideloads mobile APKs on Android TV. It should automatically get adjusted as portrait screen.

    Shocked that OnePlus Community isn't active for TV segment issues. I think I need to get a separate Android Box.

    I have instances where mobile Apks did not work on fire stick. So you cannot generalize that no matter what the mobile apk should work on an Android TV in portrait mode. But why the same apk that opened in Mi Android TV is not able to open here need to be verified.

    And the community activity is supposed to be by the users and as the volumes of TV sales is no where comparable to Mobiles, the activity is going to be less.
    By the way check this thread where there has been activity related to TV lately. You can post the issue and tag todd so that he gets to know this issue.

    Yea... New accounts can only create threads in Starting point. Better to post in the OnePlus TV Q&A thread for getting the issues noticed by the OnePlus team.
    And right now there is no option to start in Input Mode. Android TV screen is the default Home after startup. Hopefully they include an option in the update.

    Right now there is no option to start in Input Mode. We are considering to add an option for setting this.
