    Live TV has stopped

    I just noticed that I can no longer stream Live TV to my android devices. When I click the play arrow in the android app, I notice that NPVR tray icon on my server machine turns red, indicating that the tuner is active, then It returne to white. On my phone it looks like the stream is going to start then the screen just goes black and the player reverts to portrait mode. Using NextPVR still works perfectly. I'm on the latest beta versions on the server and the app. I have NextPVR plugin installed. Please find attached Server and app logs. Let me know if you need more info.
  2. Hello, Sorry if this has been covered before. I am looking to add live TV for use with Emby. I don't want to spend much at the moment. I see on Emby settings it says 'other' under the tuner settings. Does this mean I could buy a cheap USB tuner and it will work? If not could anyone suggest any cheap budget tuners. I would only really use it for recording live TV. Many Thanks for the help in advance
  3. Hi folks, On the Emby web interface, the "Recordings" section is always empty. This, despite plenty of recent successfully recorded shows. Why? The recordings show up just fine in my Recorded Series library. Maybe I misunderstand what's supposed to be in "Recordings" or maybe I've got something improperly configured? Just a curiosity, not a problem. Interested in any feedback. Thanks Marc

    Live TV Image Fetching

    Now that Emby is starting to support Tuners more natively, would it be possible for Emby to also fetch images natively? With the new Hauppauge support (which is great btw, thank you), I'm not able to grab images for the videos. Since Emby is already amazing at fetching images, would it be possible to extend this to Live TV?
  5. Hi I'm noob here. I have a Emby Premier account, would like to set up Live TV with Emby on Roku.

I don't know I'm doing it in the right way could anyone help me to set up Live Tv ?

    Live TV back isn't working

    This was two hours into a live stream. Upon hitting the back button, the Android TV app would effectively lock up for at least a minute. Once it started playing again, it wasn't back relative to where back was pressed, it was live again. Jumping back effectively doesn't work.
  7. hi after latest updates my m3u which are in Live Tv none of them work "player unavailable message" please help everything was ok up to the last update TIA
  8. Hi, I have NextPVR installed (the main program and the MB3 plugin)...I have my Hauppauge HD PVR device setup (I believe), have made channels even though I only use the component input, etc... And, I can see live TV from it through MB3 on a Google Chrome browser (both internal LAN and external WAN)...so it's partially working right. BUT, I can't see or hear anything on an iOs device I have (trying both Safari and Chrome mobile browsers) nor on my Roku 3. I've played with different decoder settings in the NextPVR interface but to no avail. Any suggestions? Anyone had success using
  9. On Roku, when I go to Live TV, I can see what's on now, and what's coming up, but if I click on "Guide" I get a pop at the bottom right, green background, white writing "Channels not yet available. Please try again in a few seconds". This message fades and reappears every few seconds. On Emby Theater (Win10), the guide works just fine. So, I'm concluding this is a problem with the Emby app. I have tried power cycling the Roku, and rebooting the Emby server. Also tried refreshing the live TV listings (schedules direct), but as I said, since it works fine in other apps, I'm not sure thi

    Guide/Tutorial for LiveTV Setup?

    Is there a step by step guide on how to setup LiveTV in Emby? Specifically looking for how to setup the HDHomerun in Emby Server, how to setup Schedules Direct for guide data, recording shows, and then setting up ET and Emby on other streaming devices for viewing the live tv and recorded streams.

    EPG TV Guide Simple Scan?

    Is it possible to integrate a simple EPG scan for IPTV channels? In TVHeadEnd you can set the Service ID to 1 and it will read the xml file and import the channels then fairly quickly import the EPG (instead of it taking several hours in TVHeadEnd). This prevents it from actually connecting to each channel to verify it's reliability which I assume the EPG/TV Guide in Emby is doing. Is there a way for Emby to import the IPTV channels and Guide quickly? Or is it possible as a feature request? Currently it takes about 30 minutes to import the guide data of about 1700 channels. Or even have
  12. Please provide a setting in Emby server to select which source Emby uses for the channel logo icons/thumbnails. For IPTV, channel logo thumbnails/icons can be provided in the m3u with following tag: tvg-logo="channel logo URL"The Guide provider can also provide channel logo thumbnails/icons with the following tag in the xmltv listing: <icon src="channel logo URL"/>Right now I see that Emby server messes things up with mixing of channel logos from both sources. My personal preference is, that Emby server can only use the channel logos from the m3u as source. Others maybe want to us

    EPG Not Loading

    EPGerrors.txtHello, I wiped all my guide providers today (was going to start from scratch and manually map the channels), but now the EPG isn't loading. My server log is filled a message for each channel as in the attached sample. Did I do something wrong?

    HDHomeRun guide data

    The HDHomeRun will provide 4 hours of guide data for free. Any chance that can be implemented in Emby? HDHomeRun DVR subscribers get access to 14 days.

    Question about EPG

    Hi Everyone, I'm struggling to understand how the guides work with the channel map. My provider gives an XMLTV file which I added as a guide and it works perfectly, but they only provide 1 day of data, so I was hoping to map some of the channels using Schedules Direct. I added SD and mapped one of the channels (it is now mapped to both guide sources), but it isn't populating. Are we meant to be able to map multiple guide sources to a single channel? If not, is there a way to in-map the channel from the XMLTV source?

    Best IPTV Provider

    Hello Emby Community! Does anybody have suggestions for a good IPTV provider for US channels with a good XMLTV EPG? I've tried a few, and the streaming quality is good and stable, but I find the provided EPG wanting. Are there any providers out there that work really well with Emby and will give more than 1 day of guide data at a time? Any suggestions are much appreciated! Thanks, Jason
  17. Hi all I'm in the process of coming back to emby from Plex and had a question about live TV and recording TV. I'm doing a clean install and need to install the driver package for the 2250 - yes I know it's older. There are 2 versions, the standard windows drivers and the media center drivers. Any idea which needs to be installed to mesh with emby correctly, so I can use it as a pvr? I've also seen mixed reports of being able to use emby for livetv, but not with the 2250. Any workarounds? Thanks for the help.

    On the fly Live TV conversion

    Newbie question. I seldom actually record Live TV (I live in New Zealand), so am wondering what to to to get this on the fly conversion of Live TV to a friendly format to work ? I have this ticked (obviously)... but all the recording are in .ts format. No sign of .mkv''s anywhere. Are there other settings that need to be made ? Couldn't see anything in the wiki. I have Premiere.
  19. Hi everyone, OK. I love Emby, but occasional missed recordings drive me nuts. Insane. I've just done a complete uninstall and reinstall/setup of Emby server and hope that will exorcise any demons remaining from my ~1 year old installation that were causing the issues. I lost two recordings last week, that were scheduled, due to unknown reasons. Anyway, while I know how to access the upcoming recordings schedule, I struggle with the lack of any recording history, or log of what recordings happened and what was missed. WMC included this information and it was invaluable in tracking d

    Emby M3U Live TV

    Hello All, I finally took the time and configured IPTV in Emby and now I'm wondering why I didn't do this long ago! Live TV is awesome in Emby, but I have a couple of questions: 1. With only 1 tuner, how does Emby handle locking the tuner when in use? It seems if Emby is recording and switch channels, it just stops recording and takes me to the new channel. Same thing happens if go to a different channel on another device. Am I missing something in config, or is this by design? 2. Can I just add another M3U tuner (assuming my IPTV provider supports multiple streams)? 3. Are
  21. When I compare ATV 4K and Emby theater/webapp concerning number of programs shown in each category, in the "Live TV programs" section: Emby Theater/ webapp: - All categorized programs are listed in "Live TV programs" section for that day in each and every category, like it should be. ATV 4K: - Only 20 categorized programs are listed in "Live TV Programs" section for each category for that day and those 20 gets repeated over and over in that category, instead of listing all available categorized programs for that category. This happens for each category. Edit: changed the word "ch
  22. Just started to use the DVBLink plugin on Emby server On my iPad (IOS11.0.3) Live TV is working as it should, so I got full EPG data for all of my DVBLink channels, can stream my DVBLink channels and my DVBLink recordings. But on my Apple TV 4K (tvOS 11.1), streaming of my DVBLink channels and my DVBLink recordings fails, with the following message: - "An error occurred loading this content." Full EPG data on the Apple TV 4K is present and I can also see all my channels and recordings. Does the server or app, needs an update, for the new profile of the App
  23. Hi folks, Quick question: in the web access to Emby Server, is there a Live TV recording history anywhere? I'm looking for something that gives the last few weeks worth of scheduled recordings and some indication of success/fail. Thanks Marc
  24. Hi, I'm having a fairly recent problem (not sure which version of Emby this has started from). When I try to stream a Live TV channel it doesn't play, I just get the spinning circle of death but when I refresh the page and try to play again it works fine. I have attached the server log and the two ffmpeg logs. I'm running the latest stable version of Emby 3.2.33 on Windows 10 with a DVBLink backend. Any help is greatly appreciated!
