A lot of exciting, community-driven development has taken place and we're pleased to announce new features that are available.

We hope to allow you to customize these images in a future release.

 

Remember Me
By default, the app will remember you when you return so that you don't need to login again. We realize that some people would prefer not to have this, so it's now easily configurable.

Faster Performance on Xbox One
The app navigates and animates faster than ever on Xbox One. If you haven't yet tried it on Xbox One, be sure to check it out at http://tv.emby.media

 

Schedule Recordings
Live TV recordings can now be easily scheduled from detail screens:

One Click Recording

 

If your remote has a Record button, you can now use it directly within the TV guide to easily schedule recordings with a single click. Try it!

 

TV Guide Improvements
The guide has been improved with features such as automatic refreshing after playback, more detailed information about the selected program, and a nifty time indicator that allows you to get an idea of the progress of current programs.

Add to Collection / Add to Playlist

 

Easily manage collections and playlists with your remote control. No mouse or keyboard needed!

 

Search and Download Subtitles

 

Now you can use your remote control to search the internet for subtitles and download them on the fly. No mouse or keyboard needed.

 

Refresh Metadata

 

Yes, you can even do that, all with a remote control.

Content Deletion

 

The app now supports deleting content from detail screens.

 

Fork the Default Skin
Can you do HTML and JavaScript? Then why not fork the default skin?

 

https://github.com/MediaBrowser/emby-web-defaultskin

 

Let us know what changes and improvements you're able to come up with. You can even release your forked version to the Emby community!

Can't wait to try out the new version, will an existing Windows Install of the theater app auto-update or do I need to manually update the application?

When logging into Xbox. It shows version 2.0.1 in top right hand corner. Is that right? How do I upgrade it to the latest version on my Xbox? Harmony remote still doesn't work for navigation.

If you're referring to the legacy Media Browser Theater, then you'll need to download this from the website.

The web application is always up to date, we just haven't always been manually incrementing the version number.

I got it to work on my desktop.  When I installed it on my HTPC it did not go well.  The install of the C++ redist hung up.  When it finally completed I brought up Emby Theater and clicked on my name.  Then it went to a black screen and was locked up.  I rebooted and now I ONLY get a black screen.  I wanted to see how usable it is with a basic remote.

 

I do like the Direct Play for it on my internal network though!

Make sure Windows DWM (Aero) has not been disabled.
