    Live TV Guide

    Hi All I have just moved over to Emby from Plex and I have setup my Live TV via IPTV in the App from my supplier. The channels download and play OK but I cannot get the Guide to show what is on....nothing shows only the channel names. The format of my M3U statement is https://website link/my username/password - do I need to get some additional settings from my IPTV supplier? I am using the app on a samsung tv Thanks Phil
  2. 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.

    Live TV guide channel display?

    Would it be possible to display the channel alongside (underneath, on top?) the channel logo artwork? It is sooooooo difficult to try to decipher these tiny icons, which usually don't have any channel number info. While logos may have some value, and are pretty, the channel number is indispensable while attempting to scroll through what could be hundreds of possibilities. I understand screen real estate is severely limited, but leaving the channel number out just isn't a good UI decision. Something has to give, even if it means fewer lines of guide per screen. We need the channel number!!

    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

    Live TV M3U Streaming Drop Out

    Hi guys, I'm having trouble with live TV M3U streams regularly dropping out while watching via Emby-stream stops and the user is placed back on the guide screen. It occurs on all devices, regularly but at sporadic timing (anywhere from 30 seconds to an hour) and does not occur when direct streaming the source link with VLC. I have attached associated server and ffmpeg log files, any help would be much appreciated! ffmpeg-transcode-b56fc0a1-1543-4f46-a4ec-8a7768bebc71_1.txt embyserver.txt

    Emby Live TV stops and freezes

    Hey Everyone, I have recently setup a HDHomerun on my server. I seem to keep getting random stops while watching the news, getting out of Live TV and then back brings it back up. I have looked at the logs and don't see nothing off the bat, any assistance would be great? embyserver.txt ffmpeg-transcode-3f8bffe5-3e2b-42c3-8ef4-7c96a6a5aa6f_1.txt ffmpeg-transcode-91e3a435-7a50-4cd2-aee0-b739c313e1b0_1.txt ffmpeg-transcode-360d6dd0-4fdc-4c99-9591-ec8c27129b79_1.txt
  8. So I have been running Emby for years but just recently pushed back into Live TV. I purchased 2 HDhomerun Extends to do that. I choose the Extends because I wanted to minimize load on the server. For understanding My clients are Roku devices of assorted versions, Roku 3, Roku 4, a couple of Roku sticks. I occasionally use my Android app. There are 10 devices total but only 2 maybe 3 are running at a time. About half of my Roku devices are connected to my 1gig ethernet switch and the other half connected to a wireless network My server is a virtual install of Emby on Windows 10 with 6 cores and 16GB or RAM. Trans coding goes to local storage which is on a RAID 5 array of SSD drives I am Emby premier running version 4.4.2 and the Roku beta app So everything setup super easily and technically works; however the quality and reliability is horrible. Since I have nothing else hooked up to my new antenna my first thought was that the reception is poor so I downloaded the HDhomerun Roku app and tried that. To my surprise the HDhomerun app is perfect, no interruptions, great picture quality, fast switching etc. So I did some testing swapping back and forth between Emby and the HDhomerun app on the same device and the results are consistent, the problem is only in Emby. I have read a number of posts around this and most of the items I have covered. The problem does look to be I am trans-coding despite having the HDhomerun extend. That said none of the other posts seem to have a way to keep that from happening. Is there a setup guide I did not find or something? Has anyone else conquered this. Thanks

    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
  10. is their a way that i can see who started to record a show on live tv? i would like to know who recorded a show so i can tell them when i get rid of the recording to save space after its been on the server after a week. or is their a system or plugin that i can use that will do that for me?

    m3u Tuner

    Upcoming Series view

    It'd be great to have an option to view Series in a Series view rather than an Episode view for upcoming TV. As you can see it can end up pretty annoying:
  14. A feature i would find really useful would be to see additional metadata when looking through "on now" and "upcoming movies" for live TV. In particular the ability to click on the "on now / upcoming" movie poster & where the options are to watch / record / more... have additional data such as IMDB & rotten tomatoes ratings, movie runtime & a link to be able to watch the movie trailer prior to setting a recording. Would this ever be considered / possible?

    M3u file problem

    Can you explain me why i dont see all programs when i add m3u file on live tv? I edit my m3u delete what i dont need,there is only 100 programs and when i go on servers in live tv add m3u files i see only one program? I use this list on kodi,vlc and see all programs. I buy premier because of live tv now dont work like i thought and like on other programs.
  16. 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.

    m3u_plus playlist...Newbie

    Hi All, Emby Version Using Firefox & Chrome As I mentioned, I'm a newbie to this so apologies in advance for lack of knowledge etc. Here's my playlist... hxxp://mbm.watch:8085/get.php?username=xxxxxxxxxx@@Xxxxx.com&password=xxxxxx&type=m3u_plus The screenshots below shows what I did. As is obvious, I have no clue what I'm doing. When I click the save button I get an error message saying, "There was an error saving the TV provider, please ensure it is accessible and try again." If I hit the search button in the screenshot above I get the screenshot below. I have no idea what to do with that part or if I need to be using that part? Playlist does not play in Emby. If anyone can tell me how to complete the process of putting my m3u_plus playlist into Emby successfully I would appreciate it. Thanks in advance for any assistance offered. Cheers, Hugh.
  18. Now that windows 7 is no longer supported I am attempting to move away from wmc and use Emby exclusively for my DVR. One main feature I am really going to miss is fast forward 1 with pitch correct audio. This is wonderful for getting through sports and the like quickly. Windows media center and TiVo have this feature. Is this something that can be done in Emby?

    Live TV M3u stops after 30 seconds

    hi, i recently moved to Emby from Plex and one thing that attracted me was the ability to add m3u links or file without the need of an additional software. so i signed up to premiere and it loaded the file perfectly. but when i play a channel, it lasts 30 seconds and it stops and i am not sure what is going on. when i use the same m3u file on vlc or any iptv player, it works perfect. searched through the forum and was adviced to tick something on auto loop but i cannot find that option. any help please? cheers Logs.txt

    Premiere tag after movie title

    I'm currently using the new plugin 'VirtualTV', and have noticed in a movie channel I have created, a movie that says Premiere after it. Just curious how premiere is determined for movies?

    25.6 GETTV wrong gudie info

    @@ebr KJNKLD6 (GETTV) 25.6 is showing the guide data for KJNKLD (TELE) 25.1 25.6 shows up in the channel map under the correct call sign but guide data is for other channel lineup USA-OTA55426
  23. Maybe I am missing something but I am having some issues with the live TV section (I have a premier subscription). I have tried with the Emby App in the official Samsung Store and also with the newest version available on GitHub. I have a Samsung model: UN55MU630DF and the server is running on my NAS device. If I go to either recordings or movies I can rewind and fast forward from the remote. But when in the live TV section, I can't change channels, rewind or fast forward. I do get the bar at the bottom with the record, rewind and play/pause and fast forward buttons and the gear on the right side. So I can highlight the fast forward or rewind icons but nothing happens. And once paused it will start playing again but I can't catch back up to the live broadcast. I don't think it is my TV buffer settings because it works on the android app. Also I can use the casting feature from my phone to the TV and the controls on the phone allow me to fast forward or rewind live TV. But I don't want to have to use my phone as the remote. Did I leave anything out? Any advice would be much appreciated.

    Emby Guide Data vs Schedules Direct?

    I just noticed that there is a "Emby Guide Data" option to use as source for Guide. How does this compare to Schedules Direct? I deleted S.D and switched to E.G.D. as it seem that is free?? I can't see any differance, or than more tags seem to show up, like NEW and Repeat... (I've been paying for S.D each year now, had no idea Emby had a free data source option)

    TVE Support?

    Have the Emby team considered adding in TVE (TV Everywhere) support? This is a feature where using a online streaming provider(Philo, Sling, YT TV, Hulu etc) or CATV provider login allows access to those network Live TV streams. (they connect and load the streams from the network sites, not the service provider). I have been using Channels DVR and they have this feature in Beta and it works well. Using my familys Xfinity Login, i can connect many channels to the server, watch, record them just as if they were coming from my local HDHDR tuner. They also support unlimited streams since they are web streams. I am soon to drop my CATV package to the minimum basic, (and probably cancel it once 1yr contract left is up) and only use my family share stream account they setup to watch the channels that support TVE, which is most of the ones i want. If the Emby team could look into adding in TVE as a Live TV source, that would really make Emby a good All in One media server solution.
