Normally it goes like this:
> Open Servers (icon on bottom bar or in overflow (3 dot) menu depending on button configuration and screen properties).
> Tap Pencil icon next to Start FTP Server to edit server properties.
> Enter Username and Password.
Note: The root of the FTP server as seen by the client varies contextually depending how you start the server. Once you get the credentials sorted out you can check the Servers FAQ post for those details.
I don't know if there are any known limitations regarding running the FTP server on android TV but if the aforementioned does not work then you could provide more details and screenshots depicting where it is not meeting expectations then maybe it could be figured out.
Also, if lack of touchscreen is an issue you might be able to run the server using the broadcast receiver as decribed here: https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/mixplorer-q-a-and-faq-user-manual.3308582/post-73832025
I don't know if the information in that post is still relevant or applicable to your situation so I recommend that you search this thread and the main thread for "Android TV" and review the posts yourself because you would be better able to interpret them.
