Lightroom Apple TV: Super slow loading of Collections

I'm finding Lightroom on Apple TV super slow in loading Collections. It takes like a minute just for the Collections to show up.

It's been like that several iOS versions and app versions.

Is there anything that can be done? For example, it used to be as slow when loading Lightroom Web from Adobe Portfolio to import some photos to my portfolio. Nowadays it's really decent, a huge progress as the Collections show up in a matter of maybe ten seconds what used to be minutes. Would like to see the same progress on Apple TV. Otherwise it's inconvenient app enough to never be used.

I have 500 Synced Collections.

Here is a data point for comparison.

I only have 40 collections but many of them have a thousand or more images. Except for the first sync of a new collection, they appear in about 2-4 seconds. New collections take about 15 seconds/1000 images to show thumbnails. 

Have you checked the free space on your Apple TV to see if you have memory to spare?

Hi Rikk,

Sorry I misrepresented my problem: I'm frustrated with the time it takes Lightroom CC on Apple TV to show me the cover thumbnails for Collections, not the thumbnails for the photos inside Collections.

For me, it's minutes for the cover thumbnails to show up and it renders the Apple TV app not useful as no one has time to first wait for minutes just for cover thumbnails to show up.

There has to be a bug or something. At least the first cover thumbnails after opening Lightroom CC should show up immediately, no need to load all my 500+ Synced Collections at the same time, let them load as I browse further.

Another suggestion: at least the names of the Collections should show up immediately. It's frustrating to look at an empty screen for minutes. If you can't load cover thumbnails faster, at least load the names of the Collections faster.

Thanks.
