Jmproductslider to show specific categories

I want to call jmproductslider to show products specific categories.  The docs show either of the following: 

  • {{block type=”joomlart_jmproductsslider/list” title=”mytitle” name=”home.jmproductsslider.list” mode=”latest”}}
  • {{block type=“joomlart_jmproductsslider/list” name=“cate.jmproductsslider1” mode=“latest” number_items=“1” width=“237” height=“170” catsid=“4”}}

As the mode states, this shows the latest products.  I understand I can call any of the following modes:

  • latest — Latest Product was created
  • best_buy — Best Seller Products
  • most_viewed — Most Viewed Products
  • top_rated — Top Rated Products
  • featured — Featured Products

None of these get what I want the sliders to do.
Adding catsid=”4″ does not limit the products into that specific category, and yes the category id is correct.
I even tried calling the template=“joomlart/jmproductsslider/categories.phtml”.  However I get the following error:
[Tue Jun 30 02:10:00 2015] [error] PHP Fatal error: Call to a member function getItems() on a non-object in [..]/app/design/frontend/techzone/default/template/joomlart/jmproductslider/categories.phtml on line 7
To wrap up, how do I get Jmproductslider to show products in specific categories?

Kind regards
