  1. Hi, Some time ago I paid to unlock the Live TV functionality of Emby's Android TV app. After the switch to version 3.6 and then 4.0 of the server, the Live TV functionality has been disabled in the app. I understand that the model changed and now we can't get Live TV through the web app (or any other way) if not using an Emby Premiere subscription, which I'm upset about, but can comprehend. TV guides are not available in my country, I provide the guide data through NextPVR and don't care about DVR, so the old model used to fit me fine (it just never made sense to me to subscribe to Premiere due to these limitations, and were the reason I chose Emby over Plex when implementing my tuners in Chile). However, I did pay for the unlock specifically for the Live TV functionality and now that feature has been removed. Given the above: is there a way to enable just Live TV (no DVR or guide or stuff) for use on the Android TV app, or can I ask a refund for my app purchase? I'm aware that it was a small fee and I'm not getting any richer if I got a refund, but I am upset about specifically paying for a feature as promised, that has later been removed arbitrarily. Also, are there plans for a "lite" Premiere subscription for users that cannot access the full fledged features (such as TV guide)? Thanks and regards, Darren
  2. So i keep getting issues with movies and tv either skipping forward a few seconds or doing like a catching up effect anyone else had the same issues?

    Android TV Sound gaps

    Hi @@ebr, I did a quick search and didn't find anything specific on this topic in the forum so far. Also wasn't sure where to file this as you'll see: My set up is: Emby server running on a NAS: QNAP TS-453A The media library is on the RAID5 volume on the same NAS (excuse me if my terminology on raid/volumes isn't right) I have a Sony Android TV and use the Android App to browse and view my Emby Library The TV and NAS are plugged into a local switch via LAN cables (or alternatively plugged TV in to the NAS which has a virtual switch capability) The setup works fine, the issue I am having is that the sound isn't continuous, every once and a while there is a short gap. It doesn't get out of sync, it just sticks for a fraction of a second and then carries on, the picture seems fine. This is irritating, it would happen a half dozen times during a 22min show, for example. I checked the NAS CPU usage and it's not high, I've tried the TV LAN cable into a local switch and into the back of the NAS virtual switch and this doesn't make any difference. Its as if the sounds isn't being buffered far enough into the future and then refreshes when it gets stuck. Any ideas on any settings I need to look at on the Emby server (or maybe the NAS or TV)? Thanks S
  4. I'm contemplating to switch from Plex to Emby due to the bug where Plex couldn't play any media with AC3/DTS without first transcoding it. I've tested Emby and all my media played fine. I can live with minimalistic look but the only gripe I have with Emby is that I could not control it with a normal tv remote. I understand I can use an airmouse or a mouse but my main usage is on an Android TV Box and don't like having too many remote (Harmony Elite user here). Is there plan to release a better support for remote use with Emby soon? Or maybe a TV mode for android box users?
  5. I have a library of type "Home videos & photos" that I have unchecked "Display in home screen sections such as latest media and continue watching" in the display settings. However, on my SHIELD TV, videos that I haven't completed still appear in the Continue Watching section. The setting does work for the latest video section.
  6. I just got a new Sony BRAVIA (55 inch X90F - KD-55X9000F) yesterday and want to use the Emby app on it instead of the old HTPC running WMC and Emby Classic. The TV is running Android TV 7.0 and the Emby Server is currently version on a Windows Server 2012 R2 machine. The audio system is an old Panasonic one with support for Dolby Digital and DTS and is connected via the optical out from the TV. The HTPC was connected to this system via optical out as well. Videos open fine from the Emby app on the new TV, but all audio is only being passed to the sound system as stereo instead of 5.1 as expected. Opening the same videos via the DLNA server from the TV has the audio pass to the audio system correctly as Dolby or DTS. Playing UHD Blu-rays from my Sony UBP-X700 passes the audio as expected as well. Most of my Blu-ray rips have been encoded as HEVC/H.265 with DTS-HD MA as MKVs, while DVD rips are the same with Dolby Digital or DTS audio. I have also tested using H.264 encoded videos. A log file from playing my rip of Avatar is attached. Any help with getting the digital audio working would be appreciated. ffmpeg-transcode-cc814e6f-523b-4cc3-b874-0d6e62ecf044.txt

    No collection appears

    No collection appears in the Android TV application. The server and the application are in the same LAN, in the application for Android phones they do appear, using the browser they also appear, in the Windows application they also appear. Any idea of the reason?
  8. This may be a "feature not a bug" situation as a result of me not understanding how you designed it to work... But it seems like the list of "Next Up" TV shows is actually a SUPER SET of "Continue Watching" (excluding the in progress movies)--- that is, it should contain all items that are in progress (Continue Watching) + episodes where I'm at the start of an episode (if the SHOW has been watched recently). You combine all those together into one list and take the most recent ~20 to include in the list. If this is more or less the desired outcome, then I believe I've found a bug. I generally only display the "Next Up" row on my Android TV because it always includes stuff that is in progress (ie Continue Watching just contains stuff I can find in "Up Next", so I don't display it). However, Up Next is occasionally missing items that I have to go and pull from the Continue Watching list. I'm happy to provide several examples but I first wanted to confirm this was actually a "bug" (per the design) before wasting any time filing a bug report. If this is not actually a bug, can you explain why it's necessary to have both the "Next Next TV" and the "Continue Watching" lists? (other than Continue Watching is both Movies + TV episodes).
  9. Summary: Add 240p and 144p options to Max Streaming Bitrate on Android TV I have an interesting use case: The back-seat entertainment in my car (~6in TV with HDMI) is using a Fire Stick running Emby. I use the Wifi hotspot from my phone and have the Max Streaming Bitrate set as low as it will go (420Kbps). That quality actually looks really good on the tiny screen. When traveling through places with weak cell signal the video will cut out or buffer. So I'd much rather run them at 144p (like the mobile version of the app allows) so that the video works in more cases. I'm guessing it was just excluded because most people are running Android TV on large TVs. So I'm hoping it's an easy fix to just add the extra options for those of us with cell-phone-sized TVs :-)
  10. I'm in the process of trying to shift from Plex to Emby. On the Nvidia Shield Emby client there appears to be a limit of displaying favorites to just 50 TV shows. You can add as many as you want, but only scroll through the first 50. This seems arbitrary ... is there any way to eliminate the 50-show limit? I would think an app that can stream 100GB 4k videos could probably handle a tagged list of >50 ... say, 50,000 ... easily? I'd be delighted if I'm just missing a simple way to display more favorites.
  11. Hallo, I'm using the Android TV app (latest version from Play Store) on a Minix U9-H Android box using a Bluetooth remote control (cursor keys, enter, esc, Play/Pause ...). I configured a Library for my tvheadend recording files (as someone in the forum has suggested) - and my problem is: When using the Android TV app, I only get to see thumbnails for my recordings and I have to move over every single item to see the titles of these recordings. My question is: Is it possible to add a "list view" option to the Android TV app, kind of like the list view in the web app? Or better just a list of recording titles and next to it the picture + details only for the active title. That would be great! Thank you in advance! Regards, Anna
  12. Hello I need old versions of emby for android 4.4.2 Where can I download? I use on android TV Beelink X2 Thank you
  13. Is there a possibility of the emby app to filter by network under tv shows. I see this functionality on the web browser but not the app. Thank You, Naimesh
  14. Hi y'all! First of all, i have to say thank you for the last big update in the app and your hard work. It is a big step. Awesome job! However, the look and feel looks cheapy in some parts, and maybe can be worked with little touches to get a better professional look. Emby is becoming in one of the most important developments in the XMBC category. Transparency: What i ask is main transparency option. This is with the intenttion that nevermind the theme you choose, you can have the option to choose transparency in the box sets and movie/series primary posters. I now this can be applied on Android environment , what i don't know if it is a lot of work. I'm not professional designer of profession but i'm working for many years with images for web design, logos, etc. Everybody wants can do your pesonal touch at the movie collection/series, with their own main posters, backdrops, etc. In fact, Emby give us to the premier users access to plugins how Cover Art. It comes with different type of "masks" for the main posters. The problem is that if you choose some rounded cover it keep the color background of the theme, depends of the theme can be random color or one color only. I have my personal box sets in my collection made by me in .png format to get that transparency, the problem is that they look bad because the background used by any theme for the primary poster or box set collection. Collections: In this section, on the Android TV APP, when you click over the collection, all information about that collection is not showed. Primary poster, description, tittle collection,etc. Nothing. The only thing that you can get is the movie list. For me, this has no sense, since when you create the collection in the web environment on the server, he pull the Primary art, backdrop and, in some cases the logo art for that collection, and in the worst scenario you can add whatever art you want. In the server/web environment, if you click over any collection, you can see all details of any collection with the artwork that you choose. That not happend in the Android TV APP. That's all for the moment, i appreciate if the team address this request. Thank you very much in advance. Regards.
  15. I have a lot of episodes the same show - different episodes, but they are not in the format "name s02e12". I have the ones for one show in a single folder - just not the right format. The mobile version - under Folders - shows the sub-folders. That makes it easy to find the show and episode I want. The TV version has a folder listing, but does not show any sub folders. Is there any way to get this feature in the TV version?
  16. Screenshot example: Translation by Emby Translation Center: "Unable to switch audio track" Problem description Emby for Android TV, in Xiaomi Mi Box 3, does not reproduces MP3 audio in ANY video file with dual audio where the codec of the first audio is MP3 and the second is AAC or AC3. Emby automatically switches to the next audio (although still reporting being on the first, watch video below). ALL video files with all other combinations described below work seamlessly (included single and dual MP3 audios): Dual AAC + AAC Dual AC3 + AAC Dual AC3 + AC3 Dual MP3 + MP3 !!! Single MP3 !!! Single AAC I tested approximately 70 video files to substantiate these claims. Considering this obvious relationship from the beginning, I did not analyze other variables that could be also common to all files where the problem was manifested. The same files played normally on: Emby App for Android Mobile Emby Web (browser) Emby DLNA from Android Mobile app for Samsung Smart TV model 2014 Problem in action (video): https://photos.app.goo.gl/iaQxfAMsQAAZBeG89 Example of media file that presented the problem: I hope this can catch the attention of the developers and provide informations for a brief solution. P.S.: I sent two or three logs following the instructions of this page, around 7 A.M. GMT-3 through the local user "Ibraim" where the error occurred while trying to play the files "Elementary 05x08 WEB 720p Dual Dinho.mkv" and "Riverdale.S02E17.720p.WEB.DUAL.WWW.COMANDOTORRENTS.COM.mkv".
  17. Hello My android tv, box tv, is with android version 4.4.2 Where can I download the app for this version of android? I try to install by the appstore but it says that the version is not compatible with the device that I have. Where can I download old versions? Thank you
  18. Android TV: Confirmed bug on both 1.5.83g (beta) and 1.5.66g If I'm within 10sec of the end of a TV show and I click the right/skip button to skip the credits (or spoilers for next weeks episode), it REWINDS back to -10sec before the end of the show. So if there are 5secs left and I right click to skip ahead to the end (so the next episode will start), it rewinds so there are 10secs left. If I keep clicking right it will just keep jumping back, in an infinite loop.
  19. Hi, I am long time Emby server user and I really enjoy using it, but have been using Kodi as a Client till today. Bought a Shield TV, so wanted to use the native App, especially since now Themes are supported. I really like the Windows Media Center theme, but I would like to have the option everywhere only to show the Theme backdrop and not the Item Backdrop. That is already possible while browsing, but not in the details screen. That option would really reduce that busy look compared to when backdrops are shown. Furthermore I would love the option to hide the initial side bar, when opening the App on the left side, as all the content is anyway displayed on the right side. That would make the Windows Media Center Theme look really close to the original look with the modern touch of Android. Appreciating any feedback from the developers. Thanks a lot for the great App And of course e for the great support here
  20. Hi, I have an 2017 nVidia Shield connected directly to my stereo TV. For Audio, I have a pair of Sennheiser Headphones (TR195) which accept a digiital PCM signal... Is there any way in which I can enforce Audio encoding from DD, DTS etc to PCM? Either from the App or the Server will do. At the moment everything is encoded/decoded to Stereo and I wanted to see if audio is improved - maybe surround sound? via PCM. thanks
  21. The Android TV app does not record the login information. Every time I open the application, I have to enter the login. Can you register automatically? O aplicativo Android TV não grava as informações de login. Toda vez que eu abrir o aplicativo, eu tenho que entrar no login. Você pode se registrar automaticamente?

    Sony Bravia - Android TV

    Hey Guys, I am thinking about buying a Sony Bravia XE9005 TV. It has Android TV and Chromecast built in. I am currently using a connecion from Computer to TV with Emby media for windows and I have always liked that with the Chocolate theme. What are the options for player etc? I am not a coder so I could not begin to create any themes sadly.
  23. I am having a couple of playback problems on my philips android tv, using emby for android tv. It has worked well for a long time, but recently the server has started transcoding due to a not supported bitrate, that I think have worked well earlier. Even more recently, I cannot play the video at all. I attached a log, where I can see that a null reference error is thrown when I try to start the playback of vikings season 5 episode 1: System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object. at MediaBrowser.Model.Dlna.StreamBuilder.GetVideoDirectPlayProfile (... I am getting the same error for all other videos as well. My other clients play everything as expected, such as emby for android (phone), embycon on libreelec on RPi, emby for kodi and the web client. server-63655188528 - Copy (2).txt
  24. Hi i am having problems with Emby for android i am running a Emby server with the latest server software Version and i was running Emby for android V2.9.86 but found that the tv guide was very very slow to load and it would cause the device to freeze then crash so i uninstalled that one and installed V2.9.07 the tv guide works fine but this one has other problems like if you set the quality to anything other than Direct it would most of the time just not play the tv channel it will just go back to the previous screen. so i tried Emby android TV v1.5.32g problems with the tv guide plus you can't change audio track it will just crash on you, and it would be nice if it loaded/changed tv channels faster like it does when you enable the VLC player with it. all in all not so good now i know that with all the changes made to the server software the apps are going to play up but if i could just get one to work properly would be a start and any news on when the next server update will be out for windows ? apart from that thank you for a great job (most of the time ) just kidding Dallier
  25. Android TV -- this bug report comes from a discussion started here. Scenario: - I have the 30min auto-logoff feature enabled (to allow my TV to go to sleep if content was left paused) - I'm watching a movie/TV show and have it paused near the end (say 96%) - When the auto-logoff feature kicks in it will stop playback which will trigger Emby server to erroneously mark it as watched The only available solution to this bug currently is to disable Emby from marking content as watched unless it's played through to 100% (which is undesirable). Proposed Solution: Whenever playback is stopped, the event sent to the server should indicate if playback was stopped by the user or not (ie "user initiated"). If this value/flag is missing the server can treat the event as user-initiated (so that this feature can slowly be rolled out to all clients). When the server receives a playback stopped event that was NOT user-initiated (such as due to the auto-logoff feature, or an idle timeout feature), the server will save the progress exactly as reported and not make any changes to the watched status (ie the server will only apply the automatic mark-as-watched feature when playback was stopped by the user).
