Gray screen with sync?

I have a nvidia shield tv pro 2019 and side loaded the 1.14.1(noapi) apk from apkmirror. After connected the hue and starting sync from the entertainment tab, it only shows a gray screen with Sync on the upper right corner of my tv screen. How to fix it? Thanks!

Didn’t know I had to create an entertainment area from official hue app first. all is good. thanks!

Good to hear you figured it out already. This is a bug because Hue Essentials should show that you need to create an entertainment area instead of just showing an empty screen. I will fix this in a future update.
