  1. 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.
  2. Even though I've set it to 7 days, then I tried 5...but I can't seem to get more than 1 day's worth of guide data. I've tried using my IPTV provider's XML TV URL, same as a local file. I think I've tried a combination of the XML file & the Emby guide..but I can't recall. I'm about to try that again. If I have more than one source, how does it determine the priorities? Will it choose one or the other, or try to merge the data? Otherwise, anyone else experiencing the same issue?

  4. Hi all, Having an issue when playing live tv in Emby Theater 3.0.9 on Windows 10. I get the theme color overlaying on my live tv video. It doesn't do it with the emby theater web app and don't know about the windows store app since I don't use it. Noticed live video was very dark and changed the display theme to Blue Radiance and that was now overlayed on top of my live tv video. Does not happen with regular videos - just live tv Saw some discussion of overlays in other topics and wondered if this happened due to a change for those issues. Has anyone else seen this? Tried a reinstall of theater with no change. emby server emby theater 3.0.9 Thanks, Mike
  5. Hello Everyone, Back here with a simple issue, not sure if it was intentional or not, but when I am watching live TV, the option to record is no longer there. I have to back out of the show and click record from the guide. I have attached my server log and two screenshots. one of the screenshots is showing that I can record from the guide, the other is from live tv view and there no longer being an option to record.

    Live TV playback not working

    Whenever I try to watch live TV through the Emby Theater app I get a spinning circle for a few minutes before the app freezes. The app is from the Emby site, not the Windows store. Live TV will playback on my phone and through the web player on any device. It will not play through androiid TV on an Nvidia Shield. I use an HDhomerun tuner. The tuner will play using NextPVR, and the HDhomerun app. E,by theatre will still not play LiveTV if using the NPVR plugin in Emby server, however I can still use the web player or my phone. In the Emby server log file it shows the stream being accessed then writing to a transcoding file. At the point where the stream is to be played by Emby Theater it seems to try and access the local loopback address rather than the address of the server or tuner. Beyond this problem, opening a TV stream through Emby is hugely slow compared to NextPVR. NPVR takes a second or 2 while emby always takes 10 seconds or more. I have attached the part of the server log from just before trying to watch LiveTV. log..txt
  7. I am new to Emby, and I am having a reoccurring issue where my playback of a show (nightly local news) is pixilating and freezing. This has happened 2 nights in a row at nearly the same time during the recording. It is still currently recording while I am watching, and I have not gotten to live yet (35 minute show and freezing around 20 minutes). This also has happened at least 3 times in the week and half I have been using Emby (switched from Plex due to problems they have not fixed to playback during recording that has been going on for months). I have had a few successful playbacks during recording, but the wife gets quite frustrated when we cannot get through the news, hopefully you can feel my pain. We are using FireTv. However, I just tried to play last nights recording on my computer and it freezes in the same place. I am pasting a snippet of the log below, the errors just keep going. Could I have a setting wrong, or??? I am not even sure what to try. I can't really seem to find a definitive guide on configuring my system. Which is a Synology DS918+ and is up to date, I have tons of storage (only using 10%), but I have not added any m.2 cache to the system (it is stock other than expanded hd space). Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated (I have searched and can't find any topics that seem to relate, so I hope it is something I can adjust on my end to fix it). My transcoding settings are basically the defaults, except I have change the thread count from Auto to 2. here is the log snippet: [segment @ 0x17fb3c0] Opening

  8. 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!
  9. 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.

    Live TV Setup + Playback Issues

    Hello: I am a recent convert to Emby from Plex. I am trying to set up live tv with an iptv m3u account. Everything works, however, Playback buffers, skips, or “loops” (goes back several seconds or minutes) and replays. I have searched the forums for solutions and tried several options, but the issue keeps occurring. I need help with the following: Are my settings correct (will post below). Could it be from my freenas server? (set up below). Would a faster internet connection solve the issue? I have attached the Emby Server log and ffmpg log. Emby (freenas) server settings: Enable hardware acceleration when available: Yes Transcoding thread count: Auto Audio boost when downmixing: 2 H264 encoding preset: Auto H264 encoding CRF: 28 Internet streaming bitrate limit (Mbps): 5 Freenas Server: Intel® Core i5-2300 CPU @ 2.80GHz (4 cores) 5TB 8 gig Ram 11.2 system ffmpgLog.pdf EmbyServerLog.pdf

    Live TV tuning on Android TV

    I am a new Emby user and have encountered an issue with the time it takes to tune into live channels on the NVIDIA Shield. I am using an HDHomerun Prime with a cable card. Emby Server is on a windows 10 system. It takes between 15-20 seconds to tune into a channel. Once tuned in, quality is great and I have not had any issues with recording or playing back content. I looked at my logs and it appears that there are some issues with invalid frame rates that are repeating that could be the issue: [mpeg2video @ 000001f432e46c40] Invalid frame dimensions 0x0. Last message repeated 43 times The channels tune in within 3-5 seconds using the "Direct Stream Live TV" but that won't work for me since I would like the ability to pause and rewind content as I watch. Thanks! EmbyLog.txt

    Unable to add Hauppauge TV tuner

    I recently took the plunge with a lifetime Emby primer license. Mainly to gain live tv support for my Hauppauge tv tuner (HVR950Q). When I select "detect my devices" it is not found even though it is listed as a valid device on my windows 8.1 OS. There is no option to enter the device information manually as directed by the UI. Thanks, David Log.txt
  14. Hi Emby Team, This request is for adding an additional header option in the 'TV Source Setup' page when setting up an M3U Tuner. Right now the choice is only 'User agent' however I have a need to set a custom HTTP referer with one of my sources. I'd be OK with a referer input box however it might be better to have multiple key / value input boxes to allow any header and its override value (including user-agent). For reference, VLC uses a customer #EXTVLCOPT tag in the M3U to provide this functionality. ffmpeg has a "-headers" option, KODI uses 'key=val' piped at the end or the URL, and Plex has support in their IPTV.Bundle plugin. Thanks for consideration. -M

    Refresh TV Guide via API?

  16. @@ebr I've had emby premiere now for 6 months running on Xpenology. Specs are latest dsm, haswell xeon e3-1225 v3 16gb ddr3 supermicro x10sll-f Hdhomerun feeds ota tv and using The Players Klub for IPTV so i've got 2 tv souces for live tv. 99% of the time we watch Emby on Shield TV latest FW Using Emby Android TV App. Problem: OTA channels are loading much slower than they used to, recordings are intermittent(whether they record or not) and it just seems a bit sluggish. I also notice when watching ota TV that during a show, the sound will cut out for 5 seconds quite often which is really annoying. Things I've tried: Getting better OTA signal to the HDHomerun by getting great new antenna, and having it professionally mounted with stronger signal now. Should i try using the emby app for my LG Oled or try just sideload the Android Emby app to Shield(vs android tv app) ? Or should i get better hardware for my Xpenology, something recent with DDR4 and Latest Intel? Or is there a cache i should clean somewhere?
  18. I record Jeopardy daily because I usually get home just as it's ending or after. I don't mind it being spoiled so I'll sometimes watch the end live (last ~10 min). When I go to watch the whole episode after the recording ends, sometimes the recording is only 4-5 minutes and then I can't watch the beginning. Usually if this happens, I'll get an error about the amount of streams, which I don't understand. Is watching while recording a no-no and I should practice more discipline? Or is this fixable?

  20. There is an option to Enable or Disable MANAGE LIVE TV RECORDINGS in the User Profile section, but I would like the option to DISABLE access to LIVE TV feature completely for some users. You could end up with remote / guest users locking up a tuner that you need for Scheduled WMC recordings.

    FF Skip on Live TV

    New to Premiere. ET has a very nice UI and the FF Skip/REV Skip is lightning fast for TV recordings, and other files. By far the best, of the media server systems, I've tested. I noticed, however, in Windows Emby Theater, when watching live TV, the picture will freeze if FF skip is pressed (+30 sec) when the live feed is less than the 30 seconds. If the live feed is less than the FF skip duration, it should go to live without freezing picture.
  22. I'm running an Emby server on a Shield TV Pro with Emby Premium. I'm trying to setup a recording of a series ("Bull") but am running into difficulties. I had it scheduled and wanted to make a change but now I just get a looping circle and can't change or delete the program. It's a little hard to see in the screenshot. Emby version is Version My impression is some sort of database corruption but not sure how I can tell or troubleshoot.
  23. I have an hdhomerun quad and an IPTV subscription that i've connected to emby. The iptv provider has over 4000 channels, obviously i wouldn't want all of those included. I seem to be missing where you filter out groups of channels, like i don't want any of the Spanish channels, how do i tell it not to import those from the m3u url? Is there a channel limit for emby live tv? sometimes when i open up the guide it loads perfectly fine.. and fast.. other times it just sits there. i check the server and its not overloaded or anything. Thanks a lot EDIT: Also, it doesn't appear that all the channels show up in the guide when it does load up fine.. seems to load about a 1000 of them give or take.
  24. I'm using HD Homerun Primes with SD guide data. I believe the data emby gets from SD includes about one hundred or so channels, and I might have an option to construct an xmltv file to slim down my guide data. The live TV page loads slow in the web app, and on the XB1 ET app. Is this normal and is there something I can do to speed things up. For starters I have configured emby to only download 2 days of guide. Is there anything else.

    deinterlacing support?

    I noticed that the Emby Android app, when I stream SD channels, it is not deinterlacing....so i see the annoying scan lines. Is there a setting somewhere that can help with this?
