  1. Hi there, I've got a problem with playing videos on my fire TV Box (see title). That happens if I play the video through the emby App or if I use the Kodi-Emby plugin. Both are at latest versions. In this case I tried to play "The finest hours" starting at 09:10 o'clock and ends at 09:12 o'clock. I also sent a report through the Emy-app-Debug function at 09:12 (or 09:13) o'clock with the user "Norman" I also see very often server errors in the log but don'T understand where they come from. Yesterday evening I tried to play a video through my BD-Player and TV (Oppo 103 and Sony Bravia
  2. Hi all, I'm facing an interesting problem by using the FireTV 1.3.19a app: When I navigate to Live-TV and click on "TV prgramm" (doesn't know how it is called in english, in german it is called "TV Programmübersicht") to see an EPG, the app is just showing the circle spinner. I tried to wait about 20 minutes and then I cancelled this. When I connect to web GUI of the same emby server, everything works fine. The EPG shows up after 3-4 seconds. Im using NextPVR on the same machine where emby server runs and all is running in my LAN. I have attached log files. One log file is where Im
  3. As 3D playback still requires external programs: Would it be possible to use the App to display only one half of the HSBS/HTOB content so that we at least could watch it in 2D, and use external players only if we actually want to watch 3D? Regards
  4. I was doing an (unrelated) test of 24p content on my television, via a number of apps, plus via a laptop and on the TV's own media player. In the process I discovered that Emby was showing an extremely-degraded image compared to everything else! It appeared to be transcoding the source video, and really screwing it up in the process. Have a look at this photo of the screen: http://s378.photobucket.com/user/wintrmute/media/Hisense%2024fps%20judder/DSCF0172_zpsvmslmofj.jpg.html From there, click the link back to the album that its part of, and look at the other photos. (Ignore the
  5. I have Emby Server running on Ubuntu 16.04 and got VA-API hardware transcoding working (see my post here). I got it to play with transcoding on Chrome browser via the web app by setting max birate to 5Mbps. However, the same file doesn't play with the FireTV after setting to the same 5Mbps. Looking at the log, looks like ffmpeg is transcoding the file fine, but the FireTV (2nd gen, version 1.2.66a) doesn't want to play the file. Please see the attached logs. server-log.txt ffmpeg-transcode-chrome.txt ffmpeg-transcode-firetv.txt
  6. Unraid Server: v6.2.1 Emby Server: v3.0.8100.0 Fire TV Box: v5.2.1.1 Fire TV App: v1.2.31a Log sent from Fire TV: 3:21PM EST Client is disconnecting from live tv 2-10 minutes after starting and returns to the guide. Been running this setup for quite awhile with no issues. The last time I was successfully streaming live tv both transcoded and direct playing was on 3.0.64, possibly 3.0.71. I update as often as new updates are released. Once the issue started on the first Fire Tv box I attempted: Clearing cache, clearing all data - no fix Re-installed Fire TV app - no fix Delet
  7. TITLE CORRECTION: aac -> aac transcoding I have a FireTV 2nd gen, version 1.2.31a. Running Emby server version 3.0.7300.0 on Linux Ubuntu 15.04 server I've transcoding all my media from mkv -> mp4 with aac with the intention of not requiring transcoding. However, when I play it on the FireTV app it looks like it's transcoding aac -> aac (and mp4 -> mkv). On the "Dashboard" it says Direct Streaming. The FireTV 2nd gen should handle mp4/aac files. When I play it on my Chrome browser it's Direct Playing. Here's the server log: http://***.***.***.***:8096/emby/videos/4129393
  8. I have posted several times on some issues with LiveTV and the FIRETV emby app using the hdhomerun extend (new version latest firmware beta3 now and latest emby server Version 3.1.154.0 beta). While I believe most of my issues are being caused by poor signal quality and how ffmpeg processes it I decided to install the latest emby theater on my windows 8.1 pc and immediately noticed it played video better than my tv tuner and emby app for firetv. I can play video on channels the tv wont play or tune at all (sound is another issue). So my question is why can emby theater play the video stream
  9. Hello there I was using it on my Amazon FireTV-Stick last week. I used it successfully with https cert from letsencrypt. It was working without any problems and is still working on iOS. On my FireTV https stopped working. "error connecting to server" So I went back to http, the connection works.. but login... no reaction, pin login - no reaction. I can type username/password as often as i want, just nothing happens. Might be coincidence, but I received "android ...volley.." error on the first login today. Next tries ended with "wrong username password" - I pretty sure they whe
  10. Ok, so I'm relatively new to the Amazon FireTV but from everything I've read, it can't playback mkv files without transcoding. Currently, I have the Emby app from Amazon (free version) as well as Kodi with the Emby Addon loaded on my FireTV. I can't seem to get either to play my network stored mkv files (mostly 1:1 rips of BR's stored on an UnRAID server running the Emby Docker). The standalone Emby app shows my library but says I need to contribute when I try to play a file. I can't seem to figure out how I would tell it that I have (even if I did, since there's no paid app in the Amazon
  11. Not sure if this is just happening to my device or if its applicable to other peoples too. I've found a few things I think are related to what I'm experiencing. https://www.amazon.com/forum/fire?_encoding=UTF8&cdForum=Fx2L8EBNTOXFSA7&cdThread=Tx2F9AEX67KT6RT https://www.reddit.com/r/fireTV/comments/497zhl/amazon_fire_tv_2nd_gen_audio_issues/ http://www.aftvnews.com/dolby-surround-sound-issues-on-2nd-gen-fire-tv-amazon-working-on-a-fix/ I've been noticing an issue with pretty much any content being streamed to my second generation fire tv box.

  12. Hi Guys, I recently picked up a Amazon FireTV Stick, which is great but wish I had something better. Its wifi only, I got it connect to my Asus RT-n66u router (Full Signal) and I have issues with playback sometimes stops and I have to start it again does it alot more on youtube app then emby app though. I have most of the time watch emby with no pausing and but youtube it does it atleast once, Its done it 5 seconds on to youtube. I've tried 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz. The interface isn't the fastest either, quite sluggish even if you just using it for Prime TV. I wondering what Android TV box is
  13. My drives are called, "Media" "Media 2" "Media #3" "Media Backup" (not really a backup) Main root of the drive are folders like "TV Shows 1-9" across those drives and one drive has movies under drive name "Untitled". I know or at least i think i have the path right when naming ...(windows has a better example than OSX and I know how windows work for letter directory, since mac is different, I think its the directory of the name of the drive (names i have above) Waisted 3 hrs after scanning media in the firetv of kodi for emby plugin and thought it worked but when I try to select a mov

    Direct Tune Option

    Is there a way to directly tune to a channel? Right now you have to use the guide to select the channel, is there going to be an option to go directly to a channel number?

    FireTV - no video

    Fairly recently, though don't know from which version, 1st gen FireTV won't play some 720p MKV video's. It plays DVD rips, plays Bluray rips, will play some 720's but not others. Didn't work on 1.2.11 and also not on the new version released on 16th July. The first below plays, the second doesn't, for example... Also see that latest version no longer indicates whether it is transocding / direct playing / anything at all (did show on 1.2.11).

    1st vs 2nd Gen FireTV

    Don't know if this is the correct forum, but anyway.... Using Emby to send video to a 1st gen FireTV box (not stick) via gigabit ethernet. Emby will direct play most stuff (up to 720p I think) but transcodes uncompressed bluray MKV rips. Would anyone happen to know if the 2nd gen FireTV will direct play this high bit rate stuff as well. So if I upgrade would it be a waste of money or not ?

    Library Issues when syncing

    I am currently running the emby server and I have two Kodi devices: 1 New Firetv and Idroidnation box running 5.1 Lollipop. Both Kodi versions are 15.2 When Running the emby add-on on Firetv , everything worked fine.. The library for Kode shows movies and tv shows on the main Kodi screen.. The Idroidnation box, not so much... It show emby under the video tab and I have to pick it to show the movies, sorta like when you share on an uPnP share. I have cleared and re-installed the add-on a mess of times, same outcome... Is this suppose to work like this on the android version o

    No connection via https

    Hi Yesterday I set up my Emby server. It is working great and I can use the WebApp though my Browser via http on port 8096 and via https on port 8920. Both is working. At first I used the self-signed certificate, but then I generated a valid certificate from "let's encrypt" for it, which is also working. But when using the Android-app or the Amazon-FireTV-Stick-App both can't connect to the https port. However, both are working great when using the http-port. I also tried both, using the self signed certificate and the let's encrypt one. Doesn't change anything... So: Http and Http
  20. Server: Version 3.0.5781.5 on Win10 Pro on i5 NUC w/16GB RAM Client: Version 1.1.29a on Amazon FireTV (Gen-1) Settings: VLC Playback Enabled with Buffer set to 3 sec Network: Server and Client both on Hardwired 100 Mbit/s I am noticing that when I start to play any video (mp4, mkv or avi) the first 2-4 seconds always start playing as a monochrome green color. This not a major thing but a bit of an unsightly distraction since it happens every time. Any suggestions on what to change to address this? Thanks, Tanamur
  21. Any way to get this implemented into the next version? Ordered in number of importance. 1. A button on the remote that would have a "Flashback" feature to flip between two different channels. 2. Be able to use the D-Pad to tune into a channel number directly, rather than paging through the guide. 3. A mini guide, similar to Windows Media Center while watching Live TV. Thanks for all your hard work!

    No Direct Stream Live TV

    Here is my setup: HTPC Server ----------------- Windows Media Center 7/Server WMC v1.0.0.58 Build 1199 installed on one computer 2 Hauppauge Digital DCR-2650 (CableCARD) 2 ATI Theater 650 (OTA) Emby Server is installed on a separate box and I have the new FireTV 2015, as well as 2014 version. I am able to Direct Play all my media, TV Shows movies, etc which is on another NAS Box. However, I am unable to get the Direct Stream of Live TV working. The only way I am able to get it to work is to turn off Direct Stream Live TV on my Fire TV, then it will transcode the TV just fine. H
  23. Hi everyone! Today I've upgraded my homeserver build and started my library from scratch, as the old one was quite messy. As a part of that cleanup action, I also wiped my Kodi installation and tried installing everything from scratch again, including the Emby addon. The authentication against my Emby server seems to work great, however not a single sync occurs and all sections remain empty without any items. I am running the Emby Addon v1.1.55 together with Kodi Isengard 15.2. I've attached a censored logfile which I took after setting the loglevel of the addon to debug. Aside from an
  24. Hi, I've installed the Emby App for FireTV Stick and the app itself works really, really great! Unfortunately, as of today the app has stopped working in terms of playback. It says I have to either unlock or become a supporter, although the trial period cannot be over (since I installed the app for the first time a few days ago). As the actual app worked perfectly fine, I was going to perform the in-app purchase anyway, but here's my problem: After I log in the app, I select "unlock" and in the next screen "next". The app is loading shortly and I find myself in the main menu again wh
  25. Good Afternoon Folks, I currently have 2 FireTV boxes which have replaced PC's in the lounge and one in my guest room which doubles as a gym for myself saves me load of electricity! Emby on the FireTV is amazing for when I have friends staying over as they are always watching TV and Movies and comment on how good it is, as they say "I have my own personal Netflix" One thing I do miss is Music support when I'm training, currently I have Kodi installed with the Emby plugin which is a decent workaround but I'd love to see music support for the FireTV purely from Emby, I have a mild case o
