  1. 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?
  3. LG Smart TV: Emby Theater 1.0.9 Windows 10: Emby Server Version 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!
  4. 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!
  5. 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

    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!.

    DVBViewer Live TV Plugin

    The long awaited live tv plugin for DVBViewer Recording Service is now awailable in Emby's plugin catalogue! I started this project just for fun, to see how easy it is to port an existing tv plugin to an other service and to check myself for my little coding skills. Unfortunately because of the ugly API and bad documentation of DVBViewer's Recording Service it wasn't always that funny for me. Anyway it's ready for release i think. I didn't tested it that much myself (i'm a MediaPortal user [emoji14] ) but in theory it should be working quit good already. Of course, i'm pretty sure you will find some bugs. Some remarks: Of course you have to enable the Webinterface of the Recording Service, the UPNP Server isn't needed. The plugin doesn't make use of the DVB-IP server of the Recording Service. So if you see some DVB devices in the live tv status page of the dashboard, please disable them or you will see duplicated channels. Don't delete them, because they will return! After you've set your channelgroup in the plugin settings, you have to manually trigger the "Refresh Guide" task once to populate the channels. If you cancel a one time schedule the first time in Emby, the timer gets disabled in DVBViewer. A second cancellation in Emby deletes the timer in the backend. If you want to re-enable a cancelled one time schedule, just go into the details page of the timer and hit save. Series schedule uses "EPG Auto Search" of the Recording Service Webinterface. Keep in mind, if you edit an existing Auto Search in Emby some of your predefined options (genre, duration, special searchphrase regex) get lost. Now have fun!
  8. 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?

    Video/Audio Recording not in sync

    I have v 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. 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?
  11. 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.
  12. I've noticed in the last couple of days that the Live TV section on the home screen doesn't display. The Live TV library icon under "My Media" shows but I have Live Tv set to show in Home Screen Section 3, but its showing the "Latest Channel Items". I don't see the Live TV section no where at all. Note: I do have a thumbnail scheduled task/job that is still In Progress (in case that's making a difference) server log 12-6-17 (12am).txt server log 12-7-17 (12am).txt server log 12-7-17 (859am).txt

    XMLTV several image formats

    Is it possible that Emby displays the image in the correct format in the grid? In my XMLTV file, several image formats are included (2x3, 3x4, 4x3, 16x9) On the Apple TV (Emby Beta) the different image formats are used. <programme channel="guide2go.86886.schedulesdirect.org" start="20181112030500 +0000" stop="20181112035000 +0000"> <title lang="de">Terra X (Der Mond - unser magischer Trabant)</title> <sub-title lang="de">(Der Mond - unser magischer Trabant) Diese Sendung berichtet über die Rolle, die der Mond in der Wissenschaft spielt.</sub-title> <desc lang="de">Diese Sendung berichtet über den Mond.

    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?
  15. 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
  16. I reinstalled Emby on my WD PR2100 with the latest beta version ( 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
  17. 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.
  18. 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.

    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
  20. 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.

    Filter some keyword from On-Now

    Do a filter when displaying On-now, to exclude "shows' that I don't think anyone will tune into. For example "Off the air", "sign off". I'm not suggesting removing infomercials as that will be impossible with all posible combinations, but some are very obvious. I do know that right now there are a lot of other priorities with live-tv, but if it is being revamped, then this is something that can help.
  24. Fairly new user of Emby here and need some clarification if what I'm seeing is expected behavior. I'm running server version 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.

    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
