    Chromecast cannot change channel

    Hello, I am unable to change live TV channels when streaming to Chromecast. I am using ServerWMC for live TV. It is possible to change live TV channels when watching within the web browser, the issue appears to be to do with the Chromecast app, regardless of whether the cast is initiated by the browser or the iOS app. The tuner is not released when the stream is stopped using the playback controls or a request to change channel is made. Manually resetting the tuner in ServerWMC allows a new channel to be streamed to Chromecast. Thanks.

    Live TV Stopped Recording

    Hello all, Odd thing started happening this past week. Emby has been recording my live TV shows through an HDhomerun tuner. I have series set to record and it had been doing a great job of catching them... until this past week when my wife asked why one of her shows wasn't recording. I've checked that the HDhomerun is configures in the system and the guide is updating. I see the series listed, but nothing is showing as scheduled to record. advTHANKSance
  3. I have a generic Amlogic based TV box running Android 4.4.2. The Android app plays Live TV properly but the Android TV app (1.1.21g) halts and stutters. It can direct play files with no problems. I think the problem is related to HLS Adaptive Playback as described here: https://github.com/google/ExoPlayer/issues/926 If I disable the OMX.amlogic.avc.decoder.awesome codec inside of /system/etc/media_codecs.xml, playback doesn't halt but CPU decoding is too slow and is unusable. In another thread Luke says that HLS adaptive streaming is turned off on the server, so I'm not 100% sure if that is the issue. Regardless, this looks like some buggy Amlogic firmware, but I'm curious as to why it works with the regular Android app, but not the Android TV app. Is playback different between the two and is there a way to force the Android TV app to use a different method for Live TV? Even with the Amlogic AVC decoder disabled, the Android app still plays the transcoded stream correctly, so it must be using a different hardware decoder entirely.
  4. Hi and first of all thank you for the great EMBY server. I have an M3U playlist with http links inside that i have imported in to EMBY's Live TV. The links inside are access to media that is already transcoded to x264/aac but EMBY still insists on transcoding the media. Is there an option anywhere that i can use to stop this from happening? Any help on this would be great Thanks
  5. When the Live TV module is chosen by the user, the server should activate the first available tuner and begin transcoding the output without waiting for the channel selection (by default, it could select the last channel viewed by that user). That way, by the time a program is selected, the stream is already flowing and the user only needs to wait while the buffer catches up to the moment the selection occurred. When the user exits the Live TV module, the stream should be shut down. This would create extra work for the CPU since it would be transcoding whenever the Live TV module is loaded regardless of whether a program is being viewed. There could be a checkbox in the transcoding section of the server console that would allow or disable this feature. For example, "Check this box to Prestage tuners".

    Emby on Insignia Roku TV

    Hi, I just got an insignia Roku TV and am trying to figure out how to run Emby. I've never used Emby before today so as I am trying to set it up on my TV I am stuck on the add server step. Where Do I get a server? Ultimately I am trying to set it up so I can add live TV channels to the Roku app and use Emby as a interface for my local media. I have used Kodi on my HTPC up until now.

  8. I think this is a known issue, but it is impossible to seek within a recorded program. I am using a WMC backend with serverwmc and Ceton tuners. It doesn't matter what client I use, you can't seek or skip to anywhere in the program. After they are converted by mcebuddy, seek works, but trying to seek while transcoding a WTV file doesn't.

    Suppress Certain Items From Showing

    Is there a way that I can force Emby to NOT show certain items on the main screen? My PC doesn't have a tuner card, so the Recorded TV, Live TV and Guide folders are redundant. Moreover, I tried adding the Music folder into Emby and it conflicts with the way Windows Media Player works, so I don't use Music as part of my media collection.

    WMC in Windows 10 - how to

    Thought this might be of interest here. Haven't tried it yet, but I plan to soon. http://www.windowscentral.com/install-media-center-windows-10
  11. I have a HDHomerun Prime 3-tuner device that had been running flawlessly with Emby until a couple of days ago. I run Emby Server at startup (not as a Windows service) and I subscribe to Schedules Direct. I have the Emby TV plugin and have successfully recorded live TV in the past. I have three Roku 3 devices and they were all able to play live TV (Charter Cable is my cablecard provider). I could also watch Live TV by opening the Emby Server in a Chrome browser on any PC or Tablet device in my house. There were no streaming /stuttering issues. Suddenly, within the past two days, I can no longer watch live TV at all (not even at the Emby Server host PC, not on Roku, or anywhere else on my network). I can open the SiliconDust HDHomeRun View app and it plays live TV flawlessly from any device on my network. I've rebooted the host computer, restarted the HDHomeRun Prime Tuner, tried running Emby as a service, etc., but nothing seems to work. I'm running Windows 10 64-bit on a very capable Dell XPS 8-core PC and everything related to Live TV from the Emby server just stopped. Any ideas on what could have caused everything to stop working? I have attached a recent log server-63576952823.txt. I'm too new at this game to interpret what the logs mean.

Hi folks, I'm seeing if anyone else is having this issue. My guide seems to be working fine, but the programs listed don't line up with the channel listings on the left. I'm not sure what the cause is, but I listed everything I could think of above that may be involved with the problem. Thanks everyone.

    Need help setting up Live TV

    Hi, I just updated to the new server update (v3.0.5713.0) and I am trying to set up Live TV. When trying to set it up it asks for either HD HomeRun or M3U. I am a bit of a noob at this but I am not using HD HomeRun and I am unsure what M3U is. I am currently using a Kaiser Baas Digital Radio TVStick. I am unsure how to set this up to work with Emby Live TV. Any instructions or a nod to an article with the instructions would be much appreciated. Also I notice that the 'Upcoming' TV episodes tab still only shows particular shows and not others. Is this something that's going to take a bit to correct on my side due to meta files? (Like the actors issue recently)
  14. After updating from Media Browser to Emby, Live TV playback on chromecast no longer works. When clicking the play button (from either the browser or the android app), nothing happens. Note: Chromcast playback of every other media item work fine and Live TV works fine on both web and android clients. I'm currently using the tvheadend plugin but have also tested this with the embytv plugin. Both plugins do not allow playing on the chromecast. Does anyone have any ideas what might be causing this?

    Prizm TV and Emby

    Question. I am going to get Prizm TV from Centurylink. Has any one gotten this to setup with Embry server and stream from it? I think it would be cool as heck to have it plug into the server and then stream out to my "TV"s and not get the set top box from them. If you know Prism, it runs threw the internet. So I think it so would be easy to do so. Wondering what your thoughts are.
  16. Hi, All - Love Emby, especially how it's grown from the MB2 days. I have a minor UI additionrequest for the web client. In the Live TV section, on the Scheduled page, I love seeing what shows are coming up to be recorded, but would love to see the episode title displayed on the card as well as the show name. The title must be available as it's there when you view the details. I realize there's a limited amount of space on the card, but even if the first part of the Title was shown (shown up to the limit of space is taken) that would still be nice. I tend to "over schedule" my series in hopes that I capture previous episodes that I've missed. I then go to the Scheduled page and look at those series' upcoming episodes so I can cancel the recordings for episodes I already have (saves tuner capacity, processing time, etc...). If the episode title was on the card, I wouldn't have to go to the details. I also think it'd just be a nice UI enhancement overall. I realize this won't be anything of a priority, but perhaps something that could be slipped in as a nice to have! Thanks for everyone's dedication to Emby. I love the products and the dedicated developers behind them. Keep it up!!

    server update breaks live tv icons

    HI, Just want to know if I am the only one who has tv icons manually adjusted for live tv (Channel 7, Win, Network 10 etc), but every server update breaks them and I have to manually edit the metadata images for them? This is a little time consuming (not really too bad, but a PITA), anybody notice similair behaviour. This happens across all machines (win 7 pc and win 7 htpc, all clients - android, moto x and tf700 tablet, with server 3.0.5675.1). Thanks

    Emby Roku consuming all tuner resources

    I've tried using Emby for my Roku 3, both version 2.09 and 2.10, and while watching Live TV does work, the stream always continues to stream even long after I've exited the Emby channel on my Roku. Additionally, when I change channels, Emby always opens the live stream on another Tuner instead of the one it was using before. In other words, I have a CableCard and 6 tuners available. I can start a live tv stream in Emby on the Roku, change the channel 5 more times, and I've now consumed all my tuners. Upon changing the channel one more time, no tuners are available and the Emby channel on my Roku crashes. Is anyone else having this issue? It seems the Roku Emby channel is not telling the server to end the stream and stop using the tuner after I stop watching Live TV... I'm using ServerWMC (latest version as of this post), a Ceton InfiniTV 6 (6 channel CableCard tuner), Emby Server on my Windows 7 machine, and my Roku 3 running both the 2.09 and 2.10b of the Emby channel. What's even more interesting: Watching live tv through the Emby web portal always will end the stream and release the tuner once I change the channel/stop watching live tv in the browser. Anyone care to cuss/fuss/discuss?? Thanks!

    New Video Player OSD

    @ Luke: With the new Video Player OSD, the info is visible for movies. However it is not for Live TV. Has this been implemented yet or is there an additional step for Live TV? This is in Emby Theater. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/19298307/EmbyTheaterINFO.JPG

    ServerWMC-Live TV

    After watching a channel, the tuner continues to show watching in the server. Is there a way to automatically clear the tuner after watching a channel in Live TV? If so how can it be done?

    Live TV for IPTV Set-Top-Box

    Hello, First post to the Emby forums so I apologize if this is the wrong place... I've been exploring replacing my Plex setup with Emby but am a little stuck. Unfortunately I'm a little new to the media hosting/streaming world so I have a feeling what I'm trying to do is possible, I'm just not asking Google with the right words. Here's what I'm trying to accomplish: Live-stream my IPTV set-top-box. A friend of mine with a fairly robust Emby setup does this wish his Comcast Cable and ServerWMC. Is there a way I can get the same level of control with my IPTV set top box (ADB 2721wx)? HDHomeRun was my first thought, but it looks like that won't support it. I've seen some hints that SlingBox might be able to do it too. Surely there is some hardware that can facilitate this. I have unlimited cloud storage that I'm able to map as a Local Drive on my server... it just thinks it's another disk albeit a little bit slower. I would love to be able use that as a DVR and media directory source. I already do it with Plex, and it works decent - a little goofy and touchy, but I'm tweaking some things and it's getting better and better all the time. My guess is that figuring out question 1 would help point me in the right direction, but if anyone has some recommendations I'd love to hear them. If it helps - my ISP is a local company that does everything over fiber. No Comcast/AT&T/Verizon/Dish etc. I really appreciate any help or advice anyone an provide, and sorry for the n00b question. Cheers! -Bowmaster
  23. A filter option to display HD channels only in Live TV would be preferable to having to manually add as favorites. Thanks for all the hard work, you devs!

    Live TV Guide

  25. I have been having issues with Live TV Streaming in Media Browser. I have tried all the possible solutions including changing the BufferDelayLiveMS setting in ServerWMC. It then occurred to me to disable my antivirus software and see if that helped. I also decided to restart Media Browser and ServerWMC after disabling the antivirus software I started a Live TV Stream and it came up fine and I continued to let it stream for about 15 minutes. In the past it would play for about 5 seconds, then start stuttering until it finally stopped and returned me to the channel page I was on before streaming the channel. I then decided to try streaming another live tv channel so I hit my browser back button and selected another live tv channel to stream. Although the Live TV Stream started to play, it stuttered for about 30 seconds, it then started playing normally and has been for about 30 minutes now. I think there are still some buffering issues with Media Browser and/or ServerWMC especially when changing live tv channels, but disabling my antivirus software definitely helped. What's strange is that Movies stream just fine. I plan on ignoring the RecordedTv directory along with the Transcode Directory (once I locate it) and run some further tests. I hope this observation helps others having the same issue as me.
