    Remove Channels

    How do I remove channels that are no longer available after moving from 1 zipcode to another
  2. LG Smart TV: Emby Theater 1.0.9 Windows 10: Emby Server Version 4.0.3.0 As reported here, Emby LG Smart TV app fails when viewing Live TV and attempting rewind or FF controls. Unfortunately, this degrades the Emby Live TV to only supporting pause/resume. In Live TV mode, the Emby app really has no advantage over the native LG Live TV. Please fix the playback controls for these expensive and beautiful LG OLED TVs. Many Thanks!
  3. Just trying to verify something here. It is my understanding that Live TV, while being recorded, is recorded to the Transcoding Cache Folder and is later moved to the Recorded TV Library folder. This would imply that I could create a Ramdisk and identify it as the location for the transcoding cache, which has the potential to provide 2 benefits. First, and most important to me, it would reduce the write activity on my expensive m.2 NVME drive, which has a finite number of writes. Second, DDR4 RAM is quicker than even Gen3 X4 NVME storage, so I may perceive a performance improvement as well. I have adequate unused RAM so I don't see creating any new system bottlenecks. Now for my questions: 1. Am I correct about the way the LiveTV recording cache works? 2. If so, is the recording file only moved to the recording folder at the end of the recording process or is it written to that folder at some interval during the recording process? 3. Am I missing anything in my reasoning? Thanks
  4. Hi Feel free to mark as duplicate if you think this is too closely related to the other threads on pooling channels. My suggestion for doing has different ultimate goals to the other ones I've found: - Suggestion to pool duplicate iPTV or DVB, DVC, DVT sources so they only show up as a single channel - Each "single" channel could have multiple sources siting in behind - Channel service/sources can be set in preference/priority - When you tune/play the channel you want if it hangs or buffers then tuner automatically failbacks to the next source/service until it finds a stable one to play Most iPTV providers are providing multiple back ups in case a channel goes down or buffers. This suggestion allows us to use the back ups without having to manually edit the XML File. TV Headend has this type of feature built in already so it can be done
  5. Hi there. I've been away for a long time since I gave up on Media Center. I've had Dish for the past few years. The Hopper 3 is a fantastic DVR but the price plus Comcast internet is no longer worth it. I'm thinking of going with Comcast for TV but the X1 DVR has a fraction of the recording space and they don't allow external storage. I was thinking using the Silicondust HDHomerun Prime 6 and Emby. I'm wondering how others like using this setup as their full time DVR. Are there any limitations? I mostly would like it to be reliable for the family. Watching live TV and shows on the road would be a plus. Thank you. *Edit Silicondust has the Prime 6 listed under products, but I don't actually see any for sale anywhere.
  6. Hello Before the update the recording of episodes of live TV by IPTV is working very well, perfect. But after this last big update something happened. The red circle appears, which means it should be recording, but nothing happens. What could be wrong?
  7. Hey, I'm trying to convert to Emby Live TV (away from my rip off cable provider) but I'm having an issue with recording. When I record a program and come back hours later to watch it, sometimes it has only recorded 2,3,10,15, etc, minutes of the show. I have made sure to try it without recording or watching anything else as I think my IPTV provider only supplies one connection. Also, sometimes I am watching a channel and Emby randomly drops out and returns back to the TV guide. I don't know if this is an error on the provider's end, a bug with the app on my Android TV, or a transcoding/server error. Any help is appreciated, thanks!
  8. Title says it all. On some channels icons are missing. On others the icons on there. When I first set up Emby on Jan 29 all of the icons were there. Anyone know how to fix it? To rule out mobile client issues (even though I noticed it on iOS), I opened up a Chrome browser and the issue is still there. I am using Emby's built-in guide (since I didn't want to pay for a guide and emby provides it so I figured it would be the "most supported" option) These channels are at the top of the guide (there are more with no icons but this is just a subset). And here are some with icons. I can't imagine the guide doesn't recognize the channels with no icons. Like I said they were working on Jan 29 when I purchased Emby Premiere. Anyone know what's going on?

    Video/Audio Recording not in sync

    I have v 4.0.0.2 installed and when I record live tv the video/audio are not in sync. I don't have this problem with Plex. What can I do with Emby to correct this problem
  10. In Emby I have multiple local users set up. I've already set up tv and movie libraries per user. I came over from Plex and like that Emby allows each user the ability to record. However I am not seeing any options for choosing the recording folder for each user. How can I do this? My server is on Windows 10 Pro but the clients in use are Rokus, Fire TV, iOS and android mobile devices.
  11.

THE OTHER PROBLEM IS THE GUIDE STILL REFRESHING, ADDITIONAL NOTES: THE OLD M3U LIST IS MORE THAT ONE THOUSAND ENTRIES. PLEASE HELP ANYONE AND THANKS.

    Playing TV from an "m3u source"

    Hi I'm trying to setup live TV in Emby with an M3U file as "source". Is that only possible with an Emby Premiere Sucscription? I have read the wiki and added the file as a TV source : But trying to play something via the Live TV plugin it prompts med for Emby Premiere? So can this be achived using the free version?
  13. I was listening to music, which was only allowing me to skip forward 2 tracks on the same album till it would error (spinning wheel). Then I tried too switch to a live TV channel, that show SWAT, CBS I think and it never loaded. Just sat there with a spinning wheel. The suddenly a song started playing. I still can't get a channel to load. Funny seeing that it always direct streams to Emby theater on my PC. Logs attached. ffmpeg-directstream-fd9cea43-eb37-4e91-8c18-f084e1da02cd_1.txt embyserver.txt
  14. I am running my MB server on a used PC. It's an AMD apu. I use an external Seagate hdd, Emby is on 1 ssd with paths to cache, metadata and transcoding on another. I mostly use a Roku premiere, Nvidia shield and my main PC as clients. As the title suggests my problem is with very long load times for channel changing, specifically with the Shield and Roku, the PC is fine. The Shield is the worst with load times easily between 10-15 seconds and sometimes reaching 17-20 seconds and bringing up a prompt asking about playback error. I choose Emby because live Tv seemed to actually work, as opposed to Plex which didn't. That leads me to believe it might be my set up. Is it my drives? My cpu? (AMD A10 7850k) My internet is fiber 500mbs download, 100 up. I've attached what I believe is a pertinent log. Thanks.
  15. I reinstalled Emby on my WD PR2100 with the latest beta version (3.6.0.84) after trying to find the Emby Guide data for live tv. Prior to installing the beta version, I still could not get any channel to play. I am using an HDHomeRun tuner with the premium tv package. I also have an m3u tuner. I set up the guide providers and refreshed the guide data. I am still now able to view any channel. All I get is the endless spinning wheel. One other fact that may be important is I just added a second router behind a Uverse router. All my devices are now connected to the second router and everything seems to be working fine. Plex also runs on the PR2100 and it has no problem playing live tv. I have attached the full server log. I cannot figure out why Emby refuses to play live tv. embyserverlog.txt

    TV guide overlay?

    I found a bug in the LG TV app with Live TV, but it got me thinking. I used the SIPTV app before, and they have a feature where you can watch TV guide/switch channels when playing the current channel, like it happened in this bug. Maybe it would be possible to map such an overlay feature to one of the color buttons (red, green etc.) on the remote? It will need some work to make the overlay text look better/clearer but it wasn't too hard to read already. Not sure If it's difficult to reproduce this bug, but it happened when viewing TV guide, I clicked on the current program in one channel then quickly clicked back on the remote. And also, will the primary screen when opening Live TV via the my media section up top work the same as Webapp/Android, I'd like to click on that directly to open TV guide.

    Live TV going black after pausing

    There is nothing more annoying than pausing a Live TV show for a few minutes (live, but a few minutes behind - so not recorded), coming back and hitting play, getting to watch a couple minutes, then just getting a black screen on Chromecast. This has happened on multiple occasions on multiple channels. Any idea why this keeps happening? This time I happen to be FWD a minute or two to get past commercials, but im pretty sure this happens even beyond that. This instance was with the HDHomeRun premium channels. Scenario: Find a show your excited about, using the Android app, cast to Chromecast Watch for a few minutes, then have a kid that needs your attention, pause the show for a while Sit back down, click play, watch for a minute. Commercials come on - not to worry, I can FWD them! Hit the Skip 30 second button a few times. One more time, and this time when it "loads" you just get a black screen Can't rewind, fwd more, drag the slider past or before, nothing. You just miss the ending to a great show. Any ideas why this keeps happening. I am pretty sure this has happened without FWD before, but in this instance I did. Attached are my logs. Log.txt
  18. Maybe there is a way to do this now, but I don't see it. I have a hdhomerun extend that finds about 25 OTA channels, of which I watch 4. I don't see a way to disable the other 21. Not a huge deal, but it is annoying to have to scroll past them all the time, particularly on my Roku where the guide scroll is not blazing fast

    live tv, no net.

    Just found out firsthand that live tv goes away and turns into an ad for purchasing emby when your internet goes down. BC just got hit with a huge windstorm, couldn't watch news. Please implement some sort of authentication caching. thanks.

    live tv

    hello guys, is there a way to add category for live tv, i dont want to have 2000 channels, i would like to break them by categories, example, sports, news, soaps, etc...
  21. Hello, I initially had a small m3u set up for some local channels and everything was working fine across all my clients. I then added another larger m3u (alongside my original) to test and when I removed it and reverted back to only using the former list, the Xbox Emby client will "freeze" after loading the guide. The info is shown but I can not navigate within the menus there (Programs, Guide, Channels, Recording, etc). By default, the app loads to the Guide portion and I am not sure if this is the problem. About the same time that I had added the previously mentioned larger list, my epg data source stopped working. I removed it at that time. Anyway, I now see the channel icons in the guide for the first 6 or so channels (screenshot attached) but I can't navigate them and start streams or move around in the menu at all. I can press B to move back to the main screen where everything else seems to be functioning fine; navigation and local play of other libraries. This is happening only on the Xbox One. Live TV can still be started (despite not knowing what is playing on the channel) on the two installed versions of the Emby App on my Windows 10 laptop (Windows Store and local install) and my mobile clients. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app from the Xbox One but the same behavior persists. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks. Edit: I just removed the remaining m3u source and the Live TV section on the Xbox shows the change with no channels listed anymore but I still can't move around to the different menu items up top (Programs, Guide, Channels, etc). It still defaults to landing on guide. Channels are listed again on the Xbox (like the attached screenshot) when I add the m3u source back to the server.
  22. Hey guys. I've read posts in the past about you guys working on your own channel management solution and totally understand that will take some time as that would be a large undertaking. However in the meantime can you guys please order the channels via their default order in the m3u playlist? I feel like that would easy to implement and would suffice for 90% of users. It's literally the only thing holding me back from using Emby as my main Live TV Viewing app. Every other app I've used to to play Live TV orders the channels in the same order that they appear in the M3U playlist. VLC, Perfect Player, Kodi, GSE, you name it! Emby blows them all out of the water but is held back by its strange channel ordering. Most providers have already gone through the trouble of ordering their playlists in an organized fashion. However most (if not all) providers do not actually specify any sort of channel number tags in the m3u playlist. They expect the channels to be displayed in the order listed. The "55576.ts" numbers that Emby defaults to are usually random and result in a very garbled and unintuitive EPG. tl;dr Add an option "Assign channel numbers by M3U playlist position" for Live TV tuners. If needed I would beta test the heck out of it. Cheers!

    Hauppauge Tuner

    Hello, I notice there is an option set in the TV Tuner configuration to select the video renderer. The options are "Overlay, VMR7, VMR9, EVR". Does this make a difference to Emby at all, and if so, which should I select? Thanks, Jason
  24. Fairly new user of Emby here and need some clarification if what I'm seeing is expected behavior. I'm running server version 3.5.3.0 and the client is a pendant Fire TV 4K. Live TV tuner is the Homerun Connect. I have direct streaming for Live TV enabled on my client. There is a difference in how Emby handles viewing a show that is being recorded and viewed at the same time versus just having a channel being viewed in the Seek Mode of Live TV. If I start a recording and then subsequently start viewing the in-process recording, the program is re-muxed to HLS but the video/audio is being direct-played. If I start viewing a channel in Live TV and then press Pause to enter into Seek Mode, once I start viewing again the program is re-muxed to HLS (as it was in the previous scenario) but now the video is also being transcoded with the reason stated as "the bitrate is too high". These two scenarios should be roughly the same... If you can watch an in process recording without transcoding, you should be able to watch in Seek Mode without transcoding. I understand there is a need to re-mux for FF and RW and am ok with that... I'd just like to have Seek Mode without the video being transcoded. It's as if Seek Mode doesn't properly look at the bitrate and just gives up on direct playing the video. Also note that I tried maxing out the allowed bitrate of the client but that didn't help.

    M3U with options support

    Hi All, I was wondering if it would be possible that when an m3u tuner is added with the "m3u with options" that emby could then detect the with options and sort the channels into their correct categories so that it is not one big list of icons, similar to what the cigeras IPTV plugin for plex does on github. https://github.com/Cigaras/IPTV.bundle Many thanks!.
