Total Commander does not report in its manifest file to support Android TV, and I don't have any plans to change that. Why? The "Documents" programming interface to write to external media like SD cards or USB sticks is not available on Android TV. This makes TC quite useless on the platform, and would lead to a sh*tload of bad reviews.
