  1. Hallo, I'm using Emby together with tvheadend 4.2.3 on a Debian Linux server. I've subscribed to Emby Premiere to test it before buying the lifetime pass I managed to connect these two via the Emby Plugin "TVHclient" For watching my media, I'm using the Android TV app (from the Play Store) on a Minix U9-H Android Box. My problem is: When watching TV recordings (via "Live TV" => "recordings") the recordings start, but when I want to seek forward or backwards, I only get the message "Unable to seek". The recordings are stored as H.264 + AAC files on the tvhea
  2. So right now if I choose to play in external player, it only recognize it as 'stream', makes it impossible to easily search for subtitle in MX Player. Is it possible for it to pass the filename to MX Player so it can search subtitle properly? Thanks
  3. I'm having a lot of trouble with a new Xiaomi Mi Box (Android TV) -- the app is very unstable on this device (which is weird since I rarely have issues on my Shield or Fire TV). It crashes so frequently the app isn't really usable. I have NOT submitted a crash report from within the app yet, but I did do the built-in Android "Report" that happens after a force close ("Emby isn't responding."). It was submitted around 2017-10-19 19:55 MST (Pacific Daylight) -- are you able to look at that report for debug information? I'll get a report sent from within the app in the next day or so.

    Xiaomi Mi Box

    Luke is there any chance of having more control over how things look on MiBox or Android Tv? it just looks plain and not a lot of options to change how it looks. Or am i asking for to much,i no you hands and plate full. thanks
  5. Hi, I don't know if this issue is related to Emby or Android TV. My TV is a Sony (KD-55X8505C) and I'm totally happy with the picture quality in general. Last week I've tried to play some HDR videos in Emby and I'm having some strange behaviour. When I play an HDR video I got perfectly black pixels within the video itself but when the video is 21:9 the black bars at the top and bottom are grey. Unfortunately it's not possible to check the picture settings as the playback stops when opening the actions menu of the Sony TV. Netflix doesn't have this issue - Amazon not teste
  6. Hello, I just returned from a 2 month business trip and all my syncing was done on my smaller tablet. I was curious if sync for Android TV could be implemented since these newer TV devices are pretty easy to take along and connect in rooms while traveling. My use case: I have a Shield TV and it supports SD cards and external drive attachments. During my stay the hotel wifi was great for syncing (daytime and late night) but was too slow for real time streaming. As a "road warrior" these devices can be setup and left to sync while working or sleeping but also easily connected to TV's in
  7. I recently bought a pretty nice Android TV mini-computer. I did so with the intention of running Emby Server on it. I want to build the server here, then I plan on relocating it to a different location once it is completed and functional, along with the USB hard drives that will contain the movie files.. I am struggling to figure out how to do that... I searched the Google Playstore for "Emby Server for Android TV". It showed an app called "Emby for Android TV". I assumed it was exactly what I wanted, so I downloaded and installed the app on my new box. It installed fine, but doesn't appe
  8. Every other platform is getting a facelift. When does Android TV get one?
  9. Sony TV has automatically updated to KODI 17. For some reason TV shows are not merging together in my kodi library on this tv although series are appearing merged in emby server and on my other android tv running kodi 16.1. In my TV library on the emby server I have a path directed to files on a mycloud and a local file path on the computer. I have reinstalled emby add on in KODI 17 but no luck. Although I can still access everything, it is annoying that a TV show is showing up twice with different episodes. Any ideas for what to do next? I'm a bit stumped.
  10. The problem appears to be remuxing but it appears to me there is no reason for it to be remuxing. It skips, it is annoying. Works fine on Windows (because no remuxing). Confirmed on: ​-Leelbox MXQ Pro (Amlogic S905) -Leelbox Master (Amlogic S905X) -NVIDIA SHIELD TV (newest version) Server: -Intel Xeon E3-1230V3 (4c/8t, 3.3 GHz) -8 GiB DDR3 -10/100/1000 NIC -RAID1 SSDs OS/transcoding temp/Emby Server install location ​-3 TB 7200 RPM HDD for recordings ​-Windows Server 2012 R2 TV Tuners: -HDHomeRun EXTEND -HDHomeRun EXTEND -HDHomeRun EXTEND Network: ​-gigabit everywhere -the entire path is
  11. It kind of sucks that this "recommendations row" can't be outright hidden but the fact it can't and the fact that Emby can use it, I think I see an opportunity. My understanding is that Emby can't give recommendations unless it has a user logged in. For personal SHIELDs, this isn't a problem but in a multi-user situation, no user is logged in by default so no recommendations are shown initially. Suggestion: If Emby for Android TV has no user logged in and therefore has no recommendations to offer, use a guest account and offer the Live TV channels as recommendations. If they back out of
  12. Hello, I can not seek/resume videos which require remuxing on my NVIDIA Shield using the Emby for Android TV's internal Player (exoplayer?). Whenever I try to resume, rewind or fast forward a video that is being remuxed, the video skips to the correct frame it is supposed to continue from but then stays there. According to ffmpeg logs and watching the size of the created tmp directory file transcoding works fine. If I play the video from beginning to end it works just fine. Also videos that are "direct play" or transcoded work fine including seek and resume - only "direct stream" is a probl
  13. This problem has been going on for a while and I upgraded the server from HDDs to SSDs to try to speed it up but it didn't help. This is an issue regardless if the device is connected via wireless or wired. It manifests in two scenarios: 1) Cold booting Android TV device, go straight to Emby, and it can take up to a minute to get the user list. How this usually presents: a) spinning dial sign in with Emby Connect screen c) back out of app (not using Emby Connect) and run Emby again so it retries with the manual data d) repeat steps 1-3 or presented with user login screen 2) Th
  14. Playback Error When I try to play a specific movie on either my Android TV box or my OnePlus 3 I get the attached error message, the Android TV client attempts it a couple of times before failing completely... If I navigate to this file directly and play it in VLC for Android or SPMC it plays fine, I've watched the film through and it's not corrupt or anything like that so I don't understand what's going on..? The error log doesn't seem to give much away but I gather it's not transcoding for whatever reason, I have created a custom path to a temp transcoding folder in the hope that wou

    Nexus Player - MPEG2 Playback

    Hi all, I was just wondering if, since the nexus player (with developer preview M) has MPEG2 hardware decoding now, Live Television could be streamed (for lack of a better term) rather than being transcoded? Or am I missing something? Is .ts remuxed to MPEG2 then transcoded to h264/aac? Thanks for any responses! I know that this will not effect many individuals but it may also help those running the windows Emby app with Live TV. Just a thought! Empire
  16. Last week Marshmallow was released for the nVidia SATV and after installing and testing Emby everything worked very well. Last night my wife and I were able to watch shows and we had no problem. Today my wife went to watch a movie and it wouldn't play. We get to the login screen, go in and find a movie, select the movie, choose play, and then it comes up with a gray screen. This happens for anything I select. Where can I look for logs to help troubleshoot? I have tried connecting with Emby on my LG G4 and it played fine. I tried using the web client from a Windows 10 box and it played f
  17. My setup: Running on Debian Jessy under a LXC Container (not docker). It's worked great-ish so far, but now all transcodes to the Shield TV fail. Direct play still works, and transcoding to the browser works as well (it transcodes using different settings to the browser, which could be significant - that transcode log is attached as ChromeTranscodeLog.txt). When I attempt to play a video that needs transcoding, it tries 3 times and fails. The error in the log shows Error ServiceStackHost: Error occured while Processing Request: Unable to write data to the transport connection:
  18. So these Leelboxes work great with Emby for Android TV but there's a problem: the controller/app doesn't really allow for basic DVR capability while playing back. The remote is pictured well here: https://www.amazon.com/Leelbox-android-installed-Amlogic-Android/dp/B013DONLX2 What I'd recommend during playback is: D-Pad Up/Down = change channel (disabled when playing back a recording) D-Pad Left = jump back 10 seconds D-Pad Right = jump forward 30 seconds OK = pause See the guide button to the lower left of the D-Pad? Make that button open up the on-screen display
  19. I started a recording, let it play until a commercial started, then hit the right D-pad 4 times to make it jump past the commercial. What did it do? 0:00 + 1 jump forward. Identifying this problem, I then tried playing it from a ways in and jumped back twice. What did it do? 0:00 - 1 jump backwards = 0:00 Somehow, when jumping mid-jump, it loses context of where it is at. Jumping mid-jump either needs to be disallowed or it needs to keep track of the jumps and get the stream to the right point. The media streamed was 1080i to a Leelbox Amlogic chip on Emby for Android TV. The audio i
  20. I have both of these apps installed on some devices that only show icons and it's impossible to tell which is which without opening them. I'd be happy with just putting "TV" across the icon for the Android TV app. I attached a picture showing the problem.

    New and confused

    It seems I have complicated my life but my intention was to keep things simple... What is the best setup for my needs? Background: For years, I've had movies stored on a network share and have been using Serviio Pro (DLNA) for standalone Blu-ray players that do not play all video formats. Serviio also does a fairly decent job of streaming over the Internet via it's built-in web portal. I occasionally utilize this functionality when I'm away. Next, I added a WDTV device because the standalones sometimes freeze and have problems with fast forward and reverse. The WDTV device plays videos di
  22. I am looking (for a friend) at a NAS with one function to store and serve videos to a Sony Android TV. At first I thought it was best to do this using a basic Netgear ReadyNAS's DLNA server. Then I thought about Kodi before realising that QNAP NAS's support Emby Server and would prefer that (I have a MediaPC running Emby and Emby for Windows Media Centre). My friend would like to spend as little as possible so I was looking at the TS-212P but I was not sure if this would be powerful enough to run Emby Server. Video will be mostly SD and 720P stuff. Can anyone share their experience with this?
  23. I read in the App Status thread that the Amazon platform will generate transcoding from DTS to DD. But that thread says nothing about this specific feature for the Google platform. Does this occur for Android TVs? My surround sound is part of my Blu ray player that does not natively support DTS, only DD. Occasional I've had to change my app settings to downmix to stereo even though I have 5.1 capabilities... because of DTS.
  24. Please forgive me if I am just missing this, but are there plans to or already existing ability to make the Emby App for Android TV capable of acting as a source for the "Google Live Channels App" in Android TV, specifically is it applies to Live TV?

    Smooth Playback

    Hi Guys, new Emby user here. Just finishing setting up and notice during playback that the video is "too smooth." Generally this is feature all on new TVs which I hate. I have turned off smooth playback on my TV settings but can't seem to find a setting on the app or on the server side. Anyone have any ideas on how to disable smooth playback? Thanks.
