  1. I have a user on my server that explicitly does not have access to live tv, but are somehow able to stream it. I've tried 're-disabling' the live tv access to no avail. The newest apple tv client and to have enabled this.

    Metadata for "On Now" / "Programs"

    I've looked around but haven't been able to find an answer so please forgive me if it's here and I just overlooked it. My question is - Is it possible to have media posters shown for the "On now" / "Programs"/ and "Upcoming" shows in the Live TV area. I understand that this information can come from the XMLTV or Emby Guide Data provided for the channel. I am using Xteve to map my channels as this is quicker than mapping through Emby. I was just wondering if since the shows appear in the "On Now" section, is there someway to have the metadata automatically pulled. See attached screenshot. Thanks, Mark

    'ON Now' reduce number of channels shown

    Is there a way to reduce the number of channels displayed under 'On Now'? I do have quite a lot of channels, and it appears (although I haven't scrolled all the way to the end), that they are all displayed under 'On Now', and I believe (all though not certain) that it is causing a delay in the home screen being populated, as it tries to populate all channels

    Unable to remove Live TV channels

    Hi, Running Emby server in docker container. I'm exploring Live TV options with a view to playing content defined in m3u files and integrating TV channels from my Enigma2 box. Comment#1: In live TV setup, HDHomerun it was necessary to append the port (':6083') before this would work (not mentioned in https://support.emby.media/support/solutions/articles/44001848794-hdhomerun-setup). It would be nice if all ports involved could be mentioned, as these may need to be exposed in the docker config where people are running containerised emby-servers. Comment#2: Using chrome or chromium browsers (on Linux) playback did not work for me (black screen after load spinner), but worked with Firefox. After creating some m3u entries and a HDHomerun entry I have a large number of channels from various attempts - some working some not, so I want to clean up. There appears to be no way to remove individual channels, so I started removing the Live TV sources. With ALL sources removed, there are no channels listed in the server settings -> Live TV -> Channels (as expected), however they are still present in: - the emby app -> Live TV !! - server settings -> Metadata Manager -> Live TV How can these entries / cache be cleared ? Server restert did not help. Maybe it is possible to remove from server data in the filesystem? Any tips or tricks appreciated, FF
  5. Hey Guys, So we tend to watch local news at night 11pm est. When it starts we setup a sleep timer for hour later. I happen to open the Web, and noticed below. It also filled up my Transcode folder 1tb SSD. Any tips on how to stop this once the Roku releases the session? Let me know which Log to upload, the day it started the session or the day I killed the session?
  6. Please add sorting by channel number in Tags categories.

    Live TV enhancements

    Hello, I have a few ideas for enhancements to the Live TV system. 1 Support for more headers in m3u files... eg.live (1/0) - disable/enable live stream flag, so play and seek controls can be enabled or disabled tvg-group - to set network/studio group of radio and tv streams for easier grouping tvg-url - so xmltv guide data can be bound directly to a channel or m3u file, bypassing the built-in gui method #bg-color and #bg-size - to alter the background color and size of the channel tile metadata display - eg. jQuery Stream, embedded m3u/8 comment, Icy-Metadata, Icecast CORS/ACAO headers. I have a ttached an m3u file which I tried to directly add as m3u tuner, but the server would not load it properly, possibly because it is one stream with multiple chunks ( also has metadata)... it can be called from another m3u tuner though. https://wz3web.scahw.com.au/live/3sea_32.stream/playlist.m3u8?listeningSessionID=5bdda753c87a2e78_303254_9A8QlPM3__00000001t29&downloadSessionID=0 #EXTM3U #EXT-X-VERSION:3 #EXT-X-TARGETDURATION:6 #EXT-X-MEDIA-SEQUENCE:40 #EXTINF:5.015,Lukas Graham - Love Someone fRjAPQ6Q9DEp-308311271-5015.aac #EXTINF:4.969,Lukas Graham - Love Someone lR52ZCSwo0Yp-308311272-4969.aac #EXTINF:5.015,Lukas Graham - Love Someone j6TateebXsLp-308311273-5015.aac tv (0/1) - enable/disable tv (must specify either radio or audio-only options if set to 0) radio (true) - enable radio-specific stream with rich metadata (only use if tv=0, can not be used with audio-only) audio-only (true) - enable audio only stream without rich metadata (only use if tv=0, can not be used with radio) 2 Add support for Icecast streams/tuners

    Remove Channels

    How do I remove channels that are no longer available after moving from 1 zipcode to another
  9. Ich habe bei mir folgende TV Liste eingestellt: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/jnk22/kodinerds-iptv/master/iptv/kodi/kodi_tv.m3u mit den dazu passenden EPG https://ricxepg.nl/epg_data/rytecDE_Basic.gz. Funktioniert soweit. Allerdings hatte ich zuvor eine andere TV Liste aktiviert, die ich unter Einstellungen - Live TV/DVR - TV Quellen wieder gelöscht habe. Die Sender werden mir hier aber immer noch angezeigt. Wie kriege ich sie weg. Aktuell habe ich keine TV Liste und kein EPG angelegt. Über TV-Programm-Anbieter - "Aktualiesiere TV-Programmdaten" habe ich die gelöschte aktualisieren lassen, in der Hoffnung, weil keine Liste da ist, dass dann auch alles weg ist. Fehlanzeige. Unter Geplante Aufgaben habe ich nach dem Löschen die Aufgaben: - Refresh InternetChannels und - Refresh Guide (Bereich Live TV) ausgeführt. Emby neu gestartet, das Ganze noch einmal durchgeführt. Die alten Sachen sind immer noch da! An welcher Schraube muss ich noch drehen, dass die TV Listen und Programmdaten ins alle Ewigkeit verschwinden, und ich nur das sehe, was ich was ich angelegt habe und sehen will?

    Pluto TV xml guide resource

    I've got the Pluto TV m3u stream working inside of Emby and the channels show fine (for the most part). I initially loaded a corresponding xml guide file to accompany but because Pluto doesn't do a 1 or 2 week guide outlook (guide is only good for 8 to 24 hrs) I don't think it is updating very well. Many of the channels do not show guide information for what is currently on. Is there a good (or better) source for the xml guide to Pluto TV that someone might have found or available? Any info would be helpful. Thx

    Hide from "On Now"

    My "On Now" is filled with "placeholders" when the channel is not broadcasting, i.e at the moment a lot of channels are showing "SIGN OFF" as the programme. The ability to create a list (with regular expressions) of things to hide from "On Now" could be very useful and very cool, that way I'm not cluttered with useless information in the On Now section. Thanks.

    Need Transcoding help

    So I have recently added a HDhomerun EXTEND to my Emby system. The goal is to allow people to watch a few local stations in Emby that we do not get on other steaming services. All of my TVs are Roku clients of different types. Some hardwired some Wifi. I use my Android client on my phone on occasion also. I have 2 HDhomerun EXTEND units connected and my goal is to be able to support 4 users watching / recording at the same time without any major load on my Emby server. The Server is virtualized running as a Windows 10 system in VMware 6.5. It has 4 cores and 10GB or RAM. All the storage is local SSD on a RAID 5 array. The server is Emby Premier version and the Roku clients are using Emby beta. Historically software transcoding has been fine for the movies and other videos I have in my library but with TV I knew the use would spike and more transcoding maybe needed. This lead me to buy the HDhomerun Extend versions due to their capability to decode. Once setup I had a few issues with specific channels that I have learned are down to reception thanks to posts and help in other Emby forums. Then I was still seeing ffmpeg activity going on, sometimes as a directstream where the audio was being converted, others full transcoding. With more help from the Forum I purchased and installed a NVIDIA GTX 1030 card to do hardware decoding. The problem is I am still seeing ffmpeg activity for the Roku clients. I now DO NOT see it for the Android but definitely for the Roku clients. Can somebody help me sort what is going on here? Shouldn't the decoding all be happening in hardware now between the HDhomerun EXTEND and the NVIDIA card? I see that the Processing Plan in the ffmpeg log still says False for all CanDoInHardware lines does that mean the card is not working correctly? I have attached logs for more details. hardware_detection-63724218955.txt ffmpeg-directstream-0194bed2-a9ad-4aac-b654-03b1a909ac4e_1.txt embyserver.txt

    Not getting "tvg-shift" from EPG list

    Good afternoon, I´m quite new to Emby, have been using Plex for a couple of years but decided to try out Emby because the support of m3u tuner. The guide shows everything right, the correct channel mapping and logos but it is not able to get tvg-shift from my m3u or/and xml link. I know it´s correct because i´ve tried it in stand alone IPTV-players and Jellyfin, but Emby does not get the correct timeshift. Is there someting I am doing wrong or is this even supported? According to the support site for "m3u-tuners" Emby is able to use those tags and show correct timing. Sincerely, Ivan
  14. Hi - I am using Emby (latest version on a Fire TV and always had this problem for the past year, even with previous versions. I am using Emby's Guide Data. I am currently getting OTA through Locast, but this exact same problem occurred when I had OTA channels with HDHomerun. Here is: - When opening the live tv guide, I see the list of channels and programming starting from the top (see print screen 1) which is for me starts with channel 2.1 CBS since I sort them by channel number. When I scroll down the channels, I see all channels and program data. For example, scrolling down to 9.1 as seen in print screen 2. - Now if I select a channel located down the guide (9.1 for example), and I then I exit Emby, and go back to Emby, it will by default go back to 9.1 when I open the guide. However the problem if when I scroll up, it then shows "No Program Data Available" for the upper channels above 9.1 (as seen in print screen 3). If I select an upper channel, it comes up fine with the data info for that channel I select. If I select 2.1, and exit Emby and go back in Emby, the TV Guide will by default start at 2.1 and the tv guide is back up exactly like it was in print screen 1. This has been the case in all Fire TV's I have tried this on, I basically cannot exit Emby from a lower scrolled down channel if I want to have a TV guide for the upper channels. I have tried to reboot the server, remove and reload the guide, rescan and reload channels, but this problem has always persisted. Does anyone know if there is fix for this - Thank you
  15. I have a recording from Live TV which I have been unable to delete. I would appreciate any guidance as to where it is stored and how can I delete it. Thanks.
  16. So I got this fancy router for Christmas. It is a netgear night hawk and probably way more router than I need. So I spend a lot of time setting things up and noticed that live Tv wasn't working. So I figured I needed to re-add the tuner on the dashboard like I always do whenever I change anything. So I removed the tuner it had and select HDhomerun and detect new tuner. And it comes back with nothing. I am at a loss, besides hooking my old router back up and returning this thing. Do I need to uninstall HDHomerun completely and reinstall everything? I can't think of a reason that would work. Any help is appreciated.
  17. Hi I am wondering if you could help please? I have a hdhomerun using emby guide data (UK extended Eire). As the countries are quite small we share channels. Eire/Ireland channels all mapped great but actually some of the UK ones have not and the option for the missing channels appear to be missing in mapping such as itv 2, citv, itv2+1 etc. Any idea how I can fix this without signing up to additional services? I could try adding another emby guide but world I would have duplicates (as you can't unmapped channels it seems). Cheers for any help you can give

    Separate Live TV Guides?

    I use multiple IPTV providers in emby. Currently emby groups them all together into one massive, hard to navigate guide. Is there a way I can split up Live TV into multiple groups? Separate, nameable Live TV groups for each m3u link I provide?

    Live TV Pauses every 10 seconds

    Server is on a Raspberry Pi 4, 4G, 1TB USB 3 SSD and Raspian OS. Live tv stutters. Trancoding path is to SSD. Thanks for any help embyserver.txt ffmpeg-transcode-bdc98411-da78-4cdd-9015-efcab2f251eb_1.txt
  21. What am I doing wrong? I have added my hauppauge tuner and let it pretend to collect guide data with the progress bar but it's never actually producing any for any channel. I can view channels which tend to stutter constantly. My internet and antenna signal are not the issue as I can watch it stutter free from the app that the tuner came with. When Plex actually worked right which it rarely did, there was guide data and no stutter. So my only conclusion is it's an issue with Emby. It also doesn't matter what devise I'm on. Latest updates of everything. Any advice would be appreciated. EDIT: So looking at another similar post I realize I have to map the guide manually which is fine just annoying. I'm trying to now and will edit when I finish the manual thing. EDIT #2 Okay for the most part the guide came in. I may have set a channel wrong here and there. My area seems to have several duplicate channels so finding the right one was questionable. I do have a large antique antenna on my roof so I'm getting channels outside my normal viewing area. But it does seem like Emby is allowing me to add most of the channels I'm picking up unlike Plex which wouldn't even allow me to add court tv because it couldn't get guide data. Kinda dumb in my opinion. EDIT #3 Still seeing channel stuttering and channel 3 NBC or KSNW 3.1 as it's called locally. It plays perfect in the hauppauge app but refused to even load on emby. I'm made sure the correct channel is mapped. Going to restart the server to see if this has any effect. EDIT#4 After restart only a little stutter at the beginning but all seems good at channel 3. I guess sometimes it just takes a restart. Weird lol. I'm still having issues with some channels stuttering but it could also be due to my antenna positioning. I will look into that and if need be make a new thread specific to the issue. My main concern was getting to watch Lester Holt at 530 everyday. Cheers.

    Recording Stops After Random Times

    So, the title sums it up for the majority of people. I'll set a show to tape, it will cut out at random times. Unsure why. And I am left with 10 second recordings, 2 minute recordings, 34 minute records, get it? What would cause this? Network is fine, I think.
  23. 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.
  24. PBS kids tends to start shows 5 minutes after the scheduled time (i.e. 7:35 AM not 7:30AM). I would prefer the flexibility to delay the start . Live TV > Series > Start when possible ..."-5" minutes before. Currently both fields do not allow negative numbers. Maybe even the flexibility to cut the recording short from the designated time slot as well, though I haven't experienced this use case.
