    How about a button on the movie side to randomly pick a movie out of your library to play? This could have a "yes play" or "no don't play" answer, and could have an option to include watched movies in the search.

    Search Icon not shown

    Hi, my Emby LG TV App is not showing an Search Icon (magnifying glass) next to the Profile Icon. Is the a Premiere Feature or an Option that I have to enable? Thx & greets
  3. Hey everyone. New to EMBY everything has been good so far happy Premier user. Just getting into the details of setting up Live TV-Recordings and noticed or possibly missed a way to search the guide for shows to record. Did a search and found a thread from 2014 saying it's coming so i'm hoping it's just something I am overlooking. I am moving from KODI/NEXTPVR as our LiveTV and PVR setup to EMBY "hopefully as a complete solution". Is there a way to search for shows in the 14 day schedule and set new episodes of those shows to record? If there is no option in the EMBY LIVETV/DVR is t

    Leaning quote on search textbox

    Hi, i observed that the defaut quote character on iOS keyboard (French AZERTY keyboard) is the leaning slash (See 1st picture) So when you are typing an item name containing a quote in the search box it won't be found. You have to manually change the quote to the vertical one (by doing a long press on the iOS quote key and selecting from the alternative quote choice) Would it be possible to be more tolerant with quotes when doing a search (maybe ignoring them in the search ?) like it is done with accented characters ? Of course now that i know the trick it's OK for me but it's a bit co

    Ways to find 4k movies

    Is there a way to search your library for only 4K videos? Is there a way to create a collection of only hi-def videos? I would prefer not to go through and rename every video that I have in my library to something with -4K in the title, so I'm wondering what's the preferred way to search/sort/display high-def video files and make them stand out as compared to the standard-def videos that I have. If I could suggest a feature, it would be to either add more capability to the current search so you can search for attributes of videos in your library (metadata search), and/or sort the library b

    music search result

    Hi, On music search results there are no means as to reach the album containing the track or the artist. Are there any plans to include links such as other results on the music landing page (i.e. suggestions)? Thanks

    search result limit

    On searching by "Bach" I get results grouped by artists, albums, musics and people. The group "albums" exhibits 24 items. It occurs, though, there are more than 24 albums containing the word "Bach" as title. Emby will even find them if I extend the search term as to narrow the result. For instance, if I search for "Bach: K", album results contains only one item ("Bach: Kantaten") which was not included as the "Bach" result. I wonder if maybe this is a known limit on the result screen. I understand the UI simply cannot handle an infinite number of items. If this is the case, could we have so

    "sort title" on seach result order

    Hi, I am running Emby Premiere version I have a question on the order by which search results are shown. According to this old thread (https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/44397-search-display-out-of-order-media/) search results should be presented on alphabetical order. There is, though, the "Sort title" field on movie info details that I use in order to reach to the desired correct order. By using this field I was able to define "star trek 01", "star trek 02", ... and get Emby to present all Star Trek movies by their release order even though their "default
  9. I can't seem to find a way to search movies by year. My library already has the metadata and I can look at any movie and see what the release date was. The search feature for Synology Emby seems to only be the simple search. I have tried to just put in "2017" as a search term, but none of my 2017 movies show up. I've seen that other Emby clients (ie. windows, etc.) have an advanced search feature, but the Synology client doesn't seem to have one. My question: Is there an advanced search feature for the Synology Emby? If not, is there a syntax (ie. <year> 2017) I can use to sear
  10. I have a problem with emby. Does the search no longer work for the movie content or file name? For me, it only works with the name of the movie, and never with the file or written content. Look at this example: Thank you
  11. Most of the time one uses the search to just search for Movie Titles or a quick way to access a TV Series. But some search terms flood one with actors, trailers, or even episodes of a TV serial. Not that they are wrong and sometimes you want to see them, and i fact I want to keep actors, trailers and episodes; just not in the default search (but maybe having the option to search for that too) Best Regards
  12. Hi I have an LG Smart TV model:55UB830T-TG. Emby Server Version: The built in DLNA client no longer allows me to search any library and when viewing my movies library I can scroll till movies starting with 'M' using the sidebar. Scrolling down using the wheel results in "Error Loading Files" and have to exit and re-enter. That wouldn't be a problem if I could search however clicking in the search box does nothing. I'm not certain if an update to the television software has caused this or if there is something I can do on emby's side to make it work. It has worked fine
  13. Hi all, Some questions/issues with using genre metadata. I just started using Emby and just got my library added. I have not yet checked the metadata on most of my collection and as such this post is isolated to a Box Set collection I added. The Collection wasn't originally found in TMDB but that's because the name I had for it differed from TMDB which is fine. I went through the process of adding the TMDB ids to each movie via "identify" and it found the movies no problem so I assumed it pulled in all the metadata from TMDB including genre. I then went and added the genre to the main
  14. People ask the same questions over and over again. If only people would use the search option before posting the same question. If there is an issue with the search option, then we can look at the problem.
  15. For the life of me, I can't figure out a way to do a simple search for a title on this W10 store app. Either it is inexplicably missing, or buried so someone as dumb as myself can't find it. I'm I the only one to be baffled by how I can perform a search?

    Record from search

    It would be great if the record series ability was accessible from the menu button on the series poster/picture see attached. Thanks for reading and considering!

    Emby Theater Skin question

    I just started to try making a skin for Emby Theater. During my early modifications, I realised that the search and settings buttons disappeared at the right top for some unknown reasons. Basically, I just modified css/colors.dark.css just to test out because it's totally new for me. I just replaced this color #52B54B everywhere for red. I did nothing else. Before going any further on this theme, I'd like to know what I'm missing or doing wrong? Is there something very basic I don't know? My url installation is here

    Unable to search for media

    I have noticed at random times that I am unable to search or anything through Emby Server web client (mainly using Chrome Version 51.0.2704.84 m but also happens using FireFox). Sometimes it will work fine but others it just does nothing (as in the screenshot). Is there a fix for this or any plans to tweak the search function in the future? I looked into 'Search Broke / Won't Find titles of movies' forum but it didn't help. Thanks in advance. server-63601372800.txt
  19. So I have a pretty big library of movies, however, when I try to search for movies I'm having a horrible time. So for example I have the movies Red and Red 2, and Redemption. However when I search for Red neither Red or Red 2 show up. Redemption, Actors, TV shows show up that have " ...red..." in the name somewhere, but Red and Red 2 do not show. If I type "Red 2" that will show, however I cannot find Red. If I just show all movies and go to R's -- both are there, so I know they are indexed. I checked the meta info and everything is correct, looks like every other movie auto-detected
  20. I found couple of defects with search using non-latin characters (e.g. russian language) 1) Search is case sensitive for titles with Russian language but case insensitive for English ones For instance: If I type "хоббит" in search field - nothing is found, but if I search for same movie with first uppercase letter, like "Хоббит" - then movie appears in search output. At the same time I can successfully search for music ignoring case in my music library which has only english titles. So is it possible to let search for russian titles also work with case insensitive method as it works with la
  21. Hi, When i use Mozilla Firefox for search a video in library via search button, the page crashes and the search does not work. My Mozilla Firefox version is 45.0.2. Which Mozilla Firefox version is recommended? If i use Chrome or Opera any problem. Thanks.
  22. I'm not sure if this happened after an Emby update or maybe after the 10.11.4 (and Safari) update, but I just noticed- When using the search (via web page in Safari) after viewing the guide it appears nothing is returned as the page is blank. However, everything I do after that also shows a blank page. For example, I went back to the guide and the page didn't display the guide, but when I scrolled a little there appeared to be a sliver showing there WAS a guide hidden by a big blank section of web page. Here's a shot of the top of the page to illustrate. Searching via the iOS apps
  23. Whenever we search a title by it's name, I noticed that only the translated name (outside-US cenarios) is found within search, not the original name. As I keep metadata of the original language and my country's too inside media (audio, subtitles...) , I expected to be able to search for a media by both of those, also. Example: Filename : Back to the future Title: De volta para o futuro Today I can only search by words inside "De volta para o futuro", even if the physic filename is in english. Can this be fixed? I don't want to force anyone to search using a specific language
  24. Noticed this recently on 3.0.5860, not sure if this was present in prior releases, still preset on 3.0.5861. When searching in the web-client the AR of the image output varies dependent on the other results that come up, as shown below. Another anomaly is results for a 4:3 show.
  25. hi I have problems with the search function, it will not find many of the titles on the server, but I go for example to the film by clicking on the letter, it will appear. Or if I scroll up to it. Does anybody have a solution to this? / Regards
