  1. After choosing Live TV within Emby and choosing a station, the first time the TV-station information bar is NOT shown. If you go back to the main menu of Emby en re-choose Live TV, the TV station information bar is shown correctly.....: Thus: This only happend the first time, the TV-station information bar (of how is it called) is not appearing.... after a refresh of re-entering Live-TV, the bar is shown correctly... this happend in the webbased Emby with all three browsers: Chrome, IE and Edge. Details: I'm using the beta-version: on a Windows Server 2016 DC/16GB RAM/500GB SSD. This probably is a small bug which already exists for some time: I earlier recognized it a few weeks ago..... Grtz. Peter
  2. Currently, if you watch an in progress recording, reach the point to where it’s live, and then you exit out of the recording, it will be considered as watched. Would it be possible to only set as watched when you reach the in progress program’s end time, rather than the end of what’s currently recorded? That way, you can come back to a recording you’ve only had the chance to watch the first 15 minutes of, and resume right where you left off. Not only that, but if you can show the proper duration of the show in the player, you would be able to tell how far along a show has been recorded while watching, and know when you’ve reached the point to where it’s live.
  3. What happened to the Live TV DVR function in the last server release? The folders in the TV library are now named TV show (2018) instead of TV Show, so now I have new series recordings split across two folders. I can recombine them if this is the naming convention going forward, not a huge deal, but it did cause some confusion. A bigger problem is the shows are no longer remuxed to MKV container on the fly, and I no longer am able to find the configuration for this feature in Emby Server. Was the feature removed? If so, why? I thought MKV was preferred to TS for use in these applications.
  4. I am currently using Emby's Live TV features with an m3u playlist. There are a lot of channels, so finding a specific channel to watch isn't the most intuitive thing. Also, if you want to look at the guide for a specific channel, you have to manually find it. I believe a simple channel search would go a long way to improve the experience. Live TV is missing a couple crucial features, but adding channel search would be a step in the right directions as the web interface (and most apps) doesn't seem to have any Live TV search or sort functionality at all. EDIT: I just found out you can search on the mobile app, but I have not gotten it to work for other apps such as Apple TV or Roku. On those platforms, only programs seem to populate. I may have to try again tomorrow, though.

    Multiple Devices Live TV

    Ok, I have seen other topic similar or the same but the answers have been rather short. Here is the situation multiple devices (like 10 devices) multiple users if one user plays a liveTV channel the other user gets bumped and vice versa. I have not made it past 2 users yet without one or the other getting bumped so the reality is only one user at a time it seems. I have seen one response where the moderator suggested selecting more streams when setting up the m3u tuner however the deafultis 0 which the server indicates as unlimited streams which is what I have set. Is there something I'm missing? Should I select 20 streams vs the 0 (unlimited) ? Any suggestions and help is greatly appreciated to get beyond the only one user can play a stream at a time issue.

    Moving "On Now" down the list

    I have setup Live TV and added an XML scheduler and that is working well. Now that I have this enabled, "On Now" is at the top of my listing in the two apps that I use. In both the web player and on my Shield boxes. I don't watch live TV very often and the images never have cover art so now my main landing screen looks meh. I looked in the apps and I don't see an option to hide the live TV section or move is down so it's not at the top of the home screen. Is there a way to move the live TV section down so I don't see it first in the home screen of my apps?
  7. I noticed Emby is not HW transcoding on my machine anymore. I'm certain it has used hardware to transcode in the past, and pretty sure it was as recently as a couple weeks ago. Now when I play media, I am seeing high CPU utilization from ffmpeg, and 0% GPU utilization. I have an i7-7700, and 2 streams is too much for it to even handle. Any ideas on why it isn't using HW? I checked to make sure HW encoding is enabled in the server settings, and checked the log and it appears that quicksync (libmfx) is enabled in the ffmpeg config (though to TBH I'm not the most experienced with ffmpeg and what don't really know what I'm looking for when it comes to diagnosing). Any thoughts, or anyone else notice this? Server-Log.txt Transcode-Log.txt
  8. I would like to suggest a new feature, or to get some insight on how to achieve something similar if possible already. I schedule a few series, and would like to only sync sone of them selectively and automatically to individual targets. The only thing I found so far it's the ability to sync ALL new content, or individual show only when they complete recording. Ideally, I wish I could schedule a new series recording and decide upfront which subscribers will get synchronized, and at what quality. I also liked for tagging a show so it would be sent to a different category which will be setup for syncing new items, but no luck there either. Thank you for the help!
  9. Start: 2018-03-06 21:00:00.015 Info App: Beginning recording. Will record for 59.9997401233333 minutes. 2018-03-06 21:00:00.015 Info App: Writing file to path: E:\Recordings\NCIS New Orleans\Season 4\NCIS New Orleans S04E16 Empathy.tsEnd: 2018-03-06 21:31:01.004 Info App: Live Stream ended. 2018-03-06 21:31:01.004 Info App: Recording completed to file E:\Recordings\NCIS New Orleans\Season 4\NCIS New Orleans S04E16 Empathy.ts 2018-03-06 21:31:01.004 Info App: Recording completed: E:\Recordings\NCIS New Orleans\Season 4\NCIS New Orleans S04E16 Empathy.tsI don't understand it. Apparently it has never recorded the full 60 minutes of this specific program.half_recorded.zip
  10. Logs were submitted from the SHIELD, user Lynn. It was tuned to one channel the whole time, first half hour was fine, program changed, and 20-25 minutes in (about an hour total runtime): 1) suddenly went black. 2) pop up asked if there was something wrong 3) user said "yes" 4) "too many errors" Server logs attached. error.zip
  11. I just noticed that when I launch a live TV stream the server is creating two ffmpeg processes, both using a good amount of CPU. I thought it may have something to do with having Mediabrowser Server and Emby Server in the programs list, so I uninstalled both and reinstalled Emby Server, but the problem still exist. I do not recall this behavior happening before the upgrade and I think my previous version was I have tried multiple channels and different browsers using the same transcoding setting of 360p since I am accessing over the WAN. Environment Detail: Windows Server 2012R2 Intel Xeon E3-1226 v3 @3.3GHz 32GB DDR3 Samsung Pro 256GB SSD
  12. Hello community. I have the following problem with my Emby Server, I have loaded an m3u list with IPTV channels, the list works fine as I tried it on VLC without any problem, but when playing the channels via web or using the app for android or windows, the playback stops and then closes on all devices. Do I need to do something extra on the emby server or, what is the problem? I post the logs. Log2.txt Log1.txt

    Live TV has stopped

    I just noticed that I can no longer stream Live TV to my android devices. When I click the play arrow in the android app, I notice that NPVR tray icon on my server machine turns red, indicating that the tuner is active, then It returne to white. On my phone it looks like the stream is going to start then the screen just goes black and the player reverts to portrait mode. Using NextPVR still works perfectly. I'm on the latest beta versions on the server and the app. I have NextPVR plugin installed. Please find attached Server and app logs. Let me know if you need more info.
  15. Hello, Sorry if this has been covered before. I am looking to add live TV for use with Emby. I don't want to spend much at the moment. I see on Emby settings it says 'other' under the tuner settings. Does this mean I could buy a cheap USB tuner and it will work? If not could anyone suggest any cheap budget tuners. I would only really use it for recording live TV. Many Thanks for the help in advance
  16. Hi folks, On the Emby web interface, the "Recordings" section is always empty. This, despite plenty of recent successfully recorded shows. Why? The recordings show up just fine in my Recorded Series library. Maybe I misunderstand what's supposed to be in "Recordings" or maybe I've got something improperly configured? Just a curiosity, not a problem. Interested in any feedback. Thanks Marc

    Live TV Image Fetching

    Now that Emby is starting to support Tuners more natively, would it be possible for Emby to also fetch images natively? With the new Hauppauge support (which is great btw, thank you), I'm not able to grab images for the videos. Since Emby is already amazing at fetching images, would it be possible to extend this to Live TV?
  18. Hi I'm noob here. I have a Emby Premier account, would like to set up Live TV with Emby on Roku. I added schedules Direct account details on Emby server settings and selected the right Channel Lineup that I have selected on Schedules Direct account but nothing is appear on Live TV channels, I tried to change the Channel Line up same way in schedules direct and Emby Live Tv settings but nothing works. I don't know I'm doing it in the right way could anyone help me to set up Live Tv ?

    Live TV back isn't working

    This was two hours into a live stream. Upon hitting the back button, the Android TV app would effectively lock up for at least a minute. Once it started playing again, it wasn't back relative to where back was pressed, it was live again. Jumping back effectively doesn't work.
  20. hi after latest updates my m3u which are in Live Tv none of them work "player unavailable message" please help everything was ok up to the last update TIA
  21. Hi, I have NextPVR installed (the main program and the MB3 plugin)...I have my Hauppauge HD PVR device setup (I believe), have made channels even though I only use the component input, etc... And, I can see live TV from it through MB3 on a Google Chrome browser (both internal LAN and external WAN)...so it's partially working right. BUT, I can't see or hear anything on an iOs device I have (trying both Safari and Chrome mobile browsers) nor on my Roku 3. I've played with different decoder settings in the NextPVR interface but to no avail. Any suggestions? Anyone had success using the Hauppauge HD PVR, and either NextPVR or ServerWVC, and Live TV through either various browser interfaces or Roku client app? Thanks in advance
  22. On Roku, when I go to Live TV, I can see what's on now, and what's coming up, but if I click on "Guide" I get a pop at the bottom right, green background, white writing "Channels not yet available. Please try again in a few seconds". This message fades and reappears every few seconds. On Emby Theater (Win10), the guide works just fine. So, I'm concluding this is a problem with the Emby app. I have tried power cycling the Roku, and rebooting the Emby server. Also tried refreshing the live TV listings (schedules direct), but as I said, since it works fine in other apps, I'm not sure this is a server side problem... If you have any ideas, I'd be happy to try them out. Happy New Year! -Jon

    Guide/Tutorial for LiveTV Setup?

    Is there a step by step guide on how to setup LiveTV in Emby? Specifically looking for how to setup the HDHomerun in Emby Server, how to setup Schedules Direct for guide data, recording shows, and then setting up ET and Emby on other streaming devices for viewing the live tv and recorded streams.

    EPG TV Guide Simple Scan?

    Is it possible to integrate a simple EPG scan for IPTV channels? In TVHeadEnd you can set the Service ID to 1 and it will read the xml file and import the channels then fairly quickly import the EPG (instead of it taking several hours in TVHeadEnd). This prevents it from actually connecting to each channel to verify it's reliability which I assume the EPG/TV Guide in Emby is doing. Is there a way for Emby to import the IPTV channels and Guide quickly? Or is it possible as a feature request? Currently it takes about 30 minutes to import the guide data of about 1700 channels. Or even have the ability to specify how many hours of EPG data to retrieve. Something like 6 hours, 12 hours, 24 hours, etc.. Thanks.
  25. Please provide a setting in Emby server to select which source Emby uses for the channel logo icons/thumbnails. For IPTV, channel logo thumbnails/icons can be provided in the m3u with following tag: tvg-logo="channel logo URL"The Guide provider can also provide channel logo thumbnails/icons with the following tag in the xmltv listing: <icon src="channel logo URL"/>Right now I see that Emby server messes things up with mixing of channel logos from both sources. My personal preference is, that Emby server can only use the channel logos from the m3u as source. Others maybe want to use the guide provider for that, so a setting for selecting a preferred source for the channel logos is useful to have Thanks !
