    Play to End of File

    An option to label a library so that files in that library are played to end-of-file rather than up to the time-code captured in the most recent library scan would make the Live TV & DVR capability far more useful.

    DVR - Recordings Folder Issue

    Greetings. Recently noticed that recording Live TV was no longer functioning. I changed the file path from a network name to a mapped drive name, and it started working again, same folder as before just different path. However. Now I have 2 recording folders on the home screen. One has a random file in it that cannot be deleted, and the other contains all the new recordings. As the admin, I am the only account who can see both folders. All users who have access to this feature can only see the now useless original folder. I have reset the DVR path to blank and saved, manually deleted all folders, rebooted server. This results in the loss of the functioning folder, but the now useless original folder remains and can't be removed. Thoughts?

    Record failing at random times/closed connection

    I have having recording failures. Sometimes its 40 min, sometimes 15min. The server reports stream server closed connection. and it retries, but gets 403 error. and quits after 435ms. I need this to be much longer and have it try more.... From the log, i gather my iptv service is dropping connection, and it take several seconds for it to accept a new connection. here is what log says, removed the iptv url. 2020-07-13 16:15:53.562 Info SharedHttpPipelineSource: Remote server closed stream http:// 2020-07-13 16:15:53.563 Info SharedHttpPipelineSource: Retry opening stream http:// 2020-07-13 16:15:53.563 Info SharedHttpPipelineSource: Opening SharedHttpPipelineSource Live stream from http:// 2020-07-13 16:15:53.563 Info HttpClient: GET http:/ 2020-07-13 16:15:53.999 Info HttpClient: Http response 403 from http:// after 435ms.

  4. Does anyone know the cause or a fix for this ugly line on the left side of the screen that i always have with my Emby IPTV? The line is only there when using IPTV and is not present when using just OTA channels. Also line is present when IPTV is recorded too. Ive had the line for like a year, all the time, never goes away, im learning to simply ignore it but i want to fix this now. But this ugly Line is baked right in. So line is visible even when opening the .ts files that Emby's DVR record in VLC player or any other. How do i get rid of this line? Emby is served from windows 10, latest emby build.

    DVR/Live TV Subtitles?

    Got my Emby server connected to a HDHomeRun Connect Duo and it's happily recording all the things. However, subtitles are not available when playing back my DVR recordings. If I play the .ts files in VLC, it will detect and show the embedded subtitles. VLC actually picks up 4 different sets of subtitles, but only the first one does anything. I know I can configure OpenSubtitles and have it download the subtitles. Or, I could set MCEBuddy to extract them to a .srt file. Though both of these options seem unnecessary since the subtitles are embedded in the .ts files. Am I doing something wrong here, or has this functionality not been added yet? I found some previous posts asking about Live TV subtitles as well. Is there any status update on that? That's a feature I would really love to see. Thanks for the support and this great software.
  6. Hello, I have been using Emby for several years and absolutely love the platform. One thing that I believe would be a nice feature would be to allow users to record to different library's. Thanks for your attention, John

    Recording of IPTV VOD

    I am a complete newbie at this so I would very much appreciate some guidance. I have an interest in recording IPTV, specifically their VOD channels. My reasoning behind this is that I live in South Africa and my international internet connection speed is limited during peak viewing times, hence the desire to record during the off-peak period so I can watch in the evenings. I have installed the Emby server and client and have a suitable M3U file list and have configured LiveTV. The problem I am having is how do I record as I don’t have any EPG. Are I correct in assuming that I must have an EPG to record? If so, is it sensible to take the M3U file list and create an artificial XMLTV file and effectively fake an EPG? I am not averse to writing some code to parse the M3U. Just trying to understand what is the best approach, and whether there are any 3rd party tools to assist. Guidance would be very much appreciated. Thanks.
  8. Tablo would be a great Plugin for Emby. Tablo capabilities (I'm no shill) Tablo is a whole home quad station tuner DVR for cord cutters. It has (in Beta) the ability to remove advertisements from "recorded" content. It allows you to watch and record up to 4 HD channels at the same time. Tablo is a network-connected DVR that streams live and recorded content over the air HD TV from your antenna through the Tablo to Roku, Android, IOS, Amazon, Microsoft & Web Browsers... High-definition transcoding provides the best picture quality while optimizing storage and Wi-Fi bandwidth usage. Connect up to 8 TB that can be added externally through USB ports and\or Internal Sata interface for SSD. RJ45 10/100/1000, wireless 2.4 & 5 -Ghz. The wireless feature allowed me to put the antenna in the attic, it detected almost 80 Channels with a $20 antenna! I would be grateful if a plugin for this was coded.

    DVR Recording 1st Few Minutes Only

    I'm not sure if there's a solution to this that doesn't involve extensive manual editing of XML files to keep channel/guide info current, but just in case there is an easier workaround, I wanted to post what I've been experiencing when trying to use the DVR. It's not the behavior I notice every time, but recording shows with the DVR works so infrequently that I rarely try. This is the most common result, where only a few minutes of a show will be recorded (attached screenshot of 'info' screen). I included the log file, though it does seem to have a TON of extra info, much of it pertaining to some other errors with the TuneIn plugin & retrieving audio content, but all I'm worried about here is what happened on 2/18 around 5PM when I requested this particular recording. I've replaced my local path/username/public URL with dummy data. Even if the guide is goofed up and it's taping the wrong show...is there any other reason why it'd crap out after recording just a few minutes? Thanks. embyserver-63717667196.txt
  10. Now that windows 7 is no longer supported I am attempting to move away from wmc and use Emby exclusively for my DVR. One main feature I am really going to miss is fast forward 1 with pitch correct audio. This is wonderful for getting through sports and the like quickly. Windows media center and TiVo have this feature. Is this something that can be done in Emby?

    Disable DVR

    Hi If i set up two tuners, can i disable one form recording and just use it for live tv while allowing the other tuner to record?

    multiple tuner designations

    Hello I couldn't find anything about this and wanted to ask. Is there a way to designation tuners to do specific things, for example: HDHomerun extend to just do recordings HDHomerun Duo to just tune liveTV This is my dream...i already have an amplified antenna and amplified splitter installed (thanks dish). Thank you
  13. I would like to have the ability to check if a movie is already in my library before scheduling a recording in the DVR. The only way to do it now is to make a search. This mean going from on screen to another. It is already possible to not record an episode of a serie that already exist in the library. A similar option should be available for movie, One suggestion is to have a seach display on screen when scheduling the recording of a movie, in order to inform if the movie is already in the library or not. Hope this help!
  14. Hi, So I have a question about the Emby Live TV and DVR with HD Homerun Prime and cable card using Spectrum. I had PLEX and it would not play/record most of the Spectrum Cable Channels as they were DRM protected, they were fine on the HDHomerun Prime but not on the PLeX server. So I checked and everyone kept saying Emby but after spending an hour reading threads here I am still unsure if Emby Premiere will play or record DRM channels. I am not talking about encrypted channels like HBO, I know the difference. Can someone just answer the basic question. With my current setup will Emby Premiere allow me to view/record these DRM channels from Spectrum via my HDHomerun Prime? Thanks, Randy
  15. Hello, Whenever I try to use Auto-organize to organize recorded TV episodes, Auto-organize fails to move the episodes and the log file shows a message that the episode cannot be sorted because it is already part of an Emby library. This is true, but it is because Emby automatically adds the Recorded TV folder as an Emby library. Hence, I have to remove the Recorded TV folder from my libraries, and then Auto-organize will sort and move the recorded episodes as expected. But then Emby adds the Recorded TV folder back as a library item and Auto-organize fails again. This has been an issue for me for quite some time, but I finally decided to ask about it. I feel like I must be missing something. Have I missed an option to avoid adding the Recorded TV folder as a library? Have I missed some other setting that fixes this issue? Are other users having this same issue? If so, how do you avoid this issue as it makes Auto-organize much less useful? I can see the benefits of having the Recorded TV folder as a library, but then it seems like Auto-organize should ignore that folder when looking through the libraries for a match for the TV show.
  16. I'm sure there are scripts or maybe an add-on someone can point me to in the meantime? Has it ever been considered to put in a feature to transcode recordings as they are recording? For example if I record a 1HR HD program, recordings can get upwards of 6GB. If I could set a bitrate to have my server transcode the recording on the fly to say 1080p 5mbps? To keep file sizes down and reduce time spent cleaning up libraries
  17. I just installed Emby yesterday after having stability issues with Plex liveTV. Setup is with a Hauppauge dual channel USB tuner connected to a Microsoft Surface. Everything was working great with liveTV so setup the DVR to record some shows. At 8pm both Chicago Med and Survivor started recording. When I checked the status of the recordings around 10:20pm I found that Chicago Med was only a partial recording of a minute 47 seconds. I looked at the log file and didn't see any errors, just that the recording stopped. Not sure what other logs to look at. From the server log the recording was started with the correct length, set it to record 1 minute additional after show end: 2019-11-20 20:00:07.507 Info LiveTV: Will record to E:\Emby\Chicago Med (2015)\Season 5\Chicago Med S05E09 I Can't Imagine the Future.ts for 60.874883375 minutes. Here is where is stops, but no errors that I can see. 2019-11-20 20:01:56.690 Info LiveTV: Recording completed to file E:\Emby\Chicago Med (2015)\Season 5\Chicago Med S05E09 I Can't Imagine the Future.ts 2019-11-20 20:01:56.690 Info LiveTV: Recording completed: E:\Emby\Chicago Med (2015)\Season 5\Chicago Med S05E09 I Can't Imagine the Future.ts 2019-11-20 20:01:56.690 Info MediaSourceManager: Live stream native_d8f0e8fc2bd98bf03584443fee3c1cc0_0f257e7cb95191e9932ee3294d0bfcdf consumer count is now 0 2019-11-20 20:01:56.690 Info MediaSourceManager: Closing live stream I checked the transcode file, attached, and didn't see any errors there either. Any help/guidance on what additional log files to look at?
  18. Trying to get Emby set up to work as cable provider replacement. The issue I am having is that I have a HDHR Quattro and an IPTV (M3U) source. Works extremely well; however, the behavior when tuners are in use has been frustrating me. At a minimum, I would like to limit the number of tuners that can be used for recording vs. live streaming. Alternatively, if attempting to tune when all tuners are is use, I could be given the choice to interrupt. Presently, I have 5 streams available from M3U and 4 tuners, so if there are items in a series, the server can theoretically record 9 programs and not let me tune another and the error is vague. As an example of previous experience, giving the user the option to cancel a recording would be nice.

    DVR: List of Known Issues

    I'm still struggling to get the DVR to work reliably. The recordings are either of the wrong show, or the playback skips around and even seems to switch channels at times. While all of these recordings were all set up on channels/programs that appeared correctly in the guide at the time, there are quite a number of missing spots in my EPG, and I've tried Emby, Schedules Direct, and XMLTV.. from what I've read in some of these threads, mapping all of the channels through some other 3rd party service sounds like a ton of work & a production-ready integrated Emby live TV/DVR solution with IPTV support is still a ways off. Is there a thread or site where I might find known issues that might cause this type of behavior upon playback? When I playback a recording & run into this, is there any information recorded in the server log that might be useful to the Emby support staff? I also have a ton of empty channels in the EPG that say "No Programming Info", but there doesn't seem to be a way to filter them out, so I'm stuck endlessly scrolling through hundreds of these...short of pointing to a local file for my giude that I edit to remove these empty channels, is there any way to set up the guide so that it excludes these channels that are unavailable? Thanks.
  20. I have been using the Emby DVR for a few months and have been pretty happy with the results recording and watching general TV programs. Recently the Rugby World Cup started showing on TV here in New Zealand and these recordings are significantly longer than the usual programs I had been recording. Watching the first game for NZ in the competition (on my Android Smart TV client) it played fine until about 40 minutes into the game (about 1:40 into the recording) when it started pixelating and glitching for 5-10 seconds. It then came right for a few minutes and then glitched again and repeated randomly throughout the rest of the game. I wasn't sure whether the glitching was in the play-back or the recording so, the following day, I opened the recorded file in VLC and tried playing it. It glitched again in the same places suggesting to me that the issue seemed to be in the recording. I had previously been using Mediaportal for recording TV and, as I had two HD Homeruns, I had allocated one to Mediaportal and one to Emby while I was testing Emby out. For the second game a week later, I recorded the game on both Emby and Mediaportal. Again, part way through the recording the Emby recording started glitching. I swapped over to Mediaportal and it had recorded the game absolutely fine, from the same signal source. Again, I subsequently checked and the issue was in the recording, not just the playback. For a recent game, I swapped the HD Homeruns over between Emby and Mediaportal to see if the problem followed the HD Homerun or the server. Again, Emby glitched and Mediaportal played/recorded it fine, suggesting that the issue was on the Emby side rather than the signal side. My Emby server is a 12 month old Core i5 with 8GB RAM and two SSDs, one for the OS and one for Recording, running Windows 10 Home. It is connected to a Gigabit LAN, along with the HD Homeruns (and the lower spec'ed Mediaportal server). It is running Emby version 4.2.1.0 with no other 'server' processes running on it. I have attached logs for the most recent recording which are rather large but the instructions for posting did say not to strip them out so.... :-) The program being recorded started at 7:00pm on Sat 26th Oct 2019 with a 3 minute pre-buffer so 6:57pm approx start time. I started watching around 8:40pm and fast forwarded through bits of the pre-game show until I got close to kick-off when I started getting pixelation again. Just before 9:00pm (kick-off) I stopped watching on Emby and swapped across to Mediaportal and watched the game there with no issues. I have also included 2 screenshots taken off the Emby recording a few minutes apart showing the sort of pixelation I am talking about. They are being played in Emby Theatre in a different PC a few days later and show the timestamp in the recording where some of the issues occur. VLC also glitches in the same places. I have recently noticed some pixelation on other longer shows (over 1 hour) but not as badly. Shorter shows seem to be OK??? I have really been enjoying my Emby experience and being able to watch all our media from the Smart TV with the one remote has been a big plus on the WAF side so it would be great if someone could help me sort out this last little glitch! :-) Many thanks in advance. PS. NZ Free to Air TV is H.264 encoded. The HD Homeruns are 'HDHomerun Dual's Model : HDHR3-DT. embyserver-63707731197.txt ffmpeg-remux-6d613bba-6221-493a-ab71-8894d0aafacf_1.txt ffmpeg-remux-1793ff98-0ed1-44d7-baf8-965328f3b33a_1.txt

    Separate user recodrings

    How do I make it so that each user has their own DVR TV Recordings folder/library. I have a separate user setup for my mother to use via Roku in tv in living room, want to give her ability to record shows...however, in my testing, it appears that their is only one global Recording path/folder. So any thing ever user set to record, shows up in that single folder/library, for all to see. I need to have her recordings separate from my own....I don't to see all her soaps...nor do I want her(or any other user) to see my recordings.
  22. Currently when I'm playing back a live recording on the Roku, I seem to only be able to seek as far as Emby has transcoded in the background. This can be frustrating if I want to seek through the first half-hour or hour of a recording. Would it be possible to change the way Emby handles seeking in ongoing recordings such that it's possible to seek to the middle of the recording and then begin transcoding from there? Thanks!
  23. I'm not sure when this started as most of the shows I record only started coming back for first-runs in the past week or so, but I am getting the following errors in Scheduled Tasks for recording shows by schedule: Task Scheduler failed to start "\Emby Recording Family Guy Sun, 06 Oct 2019 21 29 00 GMT" task for user "DomainName\ServerName$". Additional Data: Error Value: 2147943645. Task Category: Task Start Failed Last Run Result: "The operation being requested was not performed because the user has not logged on to the network. The specified service does not exist. (0x800704DD)" I am recording with an HD Homerun using OTA Digital antenna. The server is 2012R2 with Emby set to run as a service. It looks like Emby is building the scheduled tasks with "Run only when user is logged on" instead of what should be "Run whether user is logged on or not" in the task settings. It has to have been an update sometime since March-ish of this year as that is the last time I know that I had shows scheduled to record.

    DVR Choosing SD over HD content

    Hi, I have an issue with recording OTA television where the DVR selects the SD channel rather than the HD channel This is happening with the Rugby World Cup currently on in Japan. It is shown here in the UK on ITV Channel (SD) and also the HD version of that Channel ITVHD, although some of the other content and lesser games are also on the sister ITV4 channel. If I trigger the series recording for all games then I either get a choice of the current channel I am scheduling on, or all channels. If I go with the current channel ITVHD then it misses out the content on ITV4 and if I go all channels, it picks everything up, but it records the SD channel in preference to the HD channel - I have to manually select the HD channel for every recording, which is tedious. I am on the laest stable versions of Emby Server and Emby Theatre, using the Emby Guide Data with my Hauppauge dual tuner. Thanks
