  1. Just updated to 4.0.2 on my Nvidia Shield box and now Live TV channels will not tune-in. The Shield just shows a spinning blue circle and if I try via a browser, I get the message 'No compatible streams are currently available' Tried removing and re-adding my HD Homerun, no change. All channels seems to be detected and are listed. Guide is populated. Anyone else experiencing this or any ideas please.
  2. I have a fairly simple setup on my lounge room media center PC. Emby Theater primarily with Steam Big Picture for games & occasionally use YouTube via a browser for streaming content. I've been looking for a while to find a way to better integrate these separate programs with Emby Theater to avoid falling back to using the dreaded mouse or keyboard & found the below solution works well for me. Firstly, this process assumes that you have a controller connected to your media center PC. If you use Steam in your lounge room already then that is likely not an issue, but if you were only looking to add YouTube then you may need to include one, or find another option via a programmable remote or something similar. Emby supports controller inputs natively so your controller can be used to navigate your media too when not playing games! The setup instructions below will cover installing & setting up both Steam Big Picture & YouTube TV together. Feel free to skip what you do not want. If you do not want one or the other simply remove them from the Emby controller profile below. In theory, this should also work with any other 3rd party app or web based sites like Netflix you may wish to call from within Emby Theater. How does it work? Basically, this will setup a small batch file script that will run on your PC & will trigger on a button press mapped to your controller. When triggered, the batch file will close Emby, then load up Steam Big Picture (or YouTube TV), then when you finish & exit/close, it will re-open Emby again seamlessly. It uses a program called Controller Companion to integrate the switching between apps, with an improved profile for both Emby & YouTube TV to give you full control when these apps are active. No profile is needed for Steam Big Picture as this has full controller support already (just exit as normal to switch back to Emby). What will you need? - 10-20mins of time to configure & test. - Text file editor (such as Notepad or Notepad++). - Web Browser (such as Google Chrome). - Controller Companion software (this is available direct via Steam for a few $$$ or can be purchased here: http://controllercompanion.com/ ). - Free command line utility called NirCmd (available here: https://www.nirsoft.net/utils/nircmd.html ). Choose 32bit or 64bit depending on your OS. - Download ZIP attached to this post (below). *There are alternatives to Controller Companion, such as XPadder, which may also work with this setup. I like Controller Companion though as it is simple/automatic, allows control of Windows via the controller when nothing is running & crucially can map running a batch file to a button press.* A - Preliminary Setup: 1) Extract the download zip file to C:\Emby App Switcher\ (you can change this to any location but will need to update the batch files to align) 2) Install & Set Steam into Big Picture mode (When you exit make sure you exit Steam and not exit Big Picture mode). 3) Set Steam to remember your password so it will log in automatically. 4) Install Controller Companion (Steam is not required to be running for CC to run in background). 5) Open Controller Companion Settings -> set it to run on Start Up, Disable Show Balloon Tool-Tips & Disable Play Sounds on Disable. 6) Go to Profiles tab & Import from file, the two profiles from the downloaded zip (one for Emby [Electron] & one for Chrome). 7) Install Google Chrome (as needed). 8) In Chrome, load up the link (www.youtube.com/tv) & follow the instructions to register the web app with your Google account. Authorise & Exit. 9) Go to the link & download NirCmd. Extract this to the same location as your .bat files. (If not in the same folder it will not work!) B - Configuring the Batch files: There are 2 bat files for each program (total of 4 bat files) which contains the code to perform the application switch. Loading the file in Notepad will present you with this: EmbySteamSwitch.bat: @[member="Echo"] off taskkill /f /im electron.exe call "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steam.exe" start /d"C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Emby-Theater\system" Emby.Theater.exe goto :eof EmbyYouTubeSwitch.bat: @[member="Echo"] off taskkill /f /im electron.exe call "C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" -kiosk http://www.youtube.com/tv start /d"C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Emby-Theater\system" Emby.Theater.exe goto :eof - Edit the application paths for Steam & Chrome to your local installation folders. - Update the Emby Theater path to include your local username (ie replace <user>) - Save all files & close. Note: Chrome is forced to run in 'Kiosk' mode. This will prevent the browser from exiting full screen mode. You can also change -kiosk parameter to --start-fullscreen which will start the browser in full screen mode but still allow you to switch out of it while its running via F11 key (say if you wanted it to be used as a standard browser function too). You may need to modify your Controller Companion profile to expand the browser controls if you want this. The other two bat files named SteamLauncher.bat & YouTubeLauncher.bat are the files you will run linked into the controller profiles to call on the above bat files. These utilise the NirCmd utility downloaded earlier. NirCmd has one function only, and that is to hide the DOSBox/Command window from running in the background during the switch. nircmd.exe exec hide EmbySteamSwitch.bat Gives the whole process a cleaner transition. You should not have to edit these bat files unless you have renamed the other bat files above. C - The Controller Companion Profiles: The Emby CC Profile has two main buttons to perform the switching. This is the Guide button & the Start button as seen in the image below. I have also enhanced the standard controller mappings in Emby to add button controls for Volume, Skip Forward/Back, Next/Prev Track & direct Play/Pause. The default keys remain unmapped in the profile to ensure it works with the built in controller support in Emby. Note: If you have moved the install folder location from C:\Emby App Switcher\ you will also need to update this in the Emby CC profile at this point to map the Guide/Start buttons accordingly. The YouTube CC Profile contains all the keyboard mappings available for the TV app. It also includes Windows Media Controls for Next/Prev video, volume controls & allows for integration of the Virtual Keyboard wheel that is part of Controller Companion for quicker text input. To exit out of YouTube TV, press the Start button on the controller (same button you used to enter YouTube TV). I've been testing this out for the last week & the solution seems solid, but if you encounter any issues please let me know. Hope you find this helpful! EmbyAppSwitcher1.0.zip

    TV eps not loaded/showing

    I have the "LOST" series; 120 eps. but only about 40 are actually showing in Emby. In 3.x it seemed okay. Alot of the IMDB info is wrong, but previously I fixed those manually, but now seasons and eps are just not displayed. They are not visible in the metadata library either. I've removed and put back the series but have the same results. Emby should read any usable video file and add it even if metadata is invalid or missing from other sources. Similar issue with STNG season 1---- 1 ep/but all eps show in metadata as ep 1 (manually fixable). Please advise, Thanks.

    Live TV audio sync

    Was just trying out a little live TV on the main PC, watching via Chrome, were it transcodes, and ET, where it direct plays, and in both (and I think on other devices like Fire TV) picture and audio are out of sync. This is on Windows using Nextpvr plus plugin. Would logs help with any possible diagnosis ?
  5. Hi, Some time ago I paid to unlock the Live TV functionality of Emby's Android TV app. After the switch to version 3.6 and then 4.0 of the server, the Live TV functionality has been disabled in the app. I understand that the model changed and now we can't get Live TV through the web app (or any other way) if not using an Emby Premiere subscription, which I'm upset about, but can comprehend. TV guides are not available in my country, I provide the guide data through NextPVR and don't care about DVR, so the old model used to fit me fine (it just never made sense to me to subscribe to Premiere due to these limitations, and were the reason I chose Emby over Plex when implementing my tuners in Chile). However, I did pay for the unlock specifically for the Live TV functionality and now that feature has been removed. Given the above: is there a way to enable just Live TV (no DVR or guide or stuff) for use on the Android TV app, or can I ask a refund for my app purchase? I'm aware that it was a small fee and I'm not getting any richer if I got a refund, but I am upset about specifically paying for a feature as promised, that has later been removed arbitrarily. Also, are there plans for a "lite" Premiere subscription for users that cannot access the full fledged features (such as TV guide)? Thanks and regards, Darren
  6. Synology 1618+ on Emby 3.6.0.84-1-beta TV is mid-level 2016 Samsung (sorry don't have the model # on hand) Nvidia Shield (latest updates etc) So far all non-4k-hdr bluray rips I've created work very well. I have the hdmi 1 set to accept uhd color, the shield set to auto passthrough (I believe) the correct settings and in emby auto everything, plus the tv picture settings set to the uhd (but turned off the "hdr mode" which I read was just like an emulation of the hdr, it appears more washed out with it enabled). I think I read my tv doesn't do the 2020 color space and the result is a darker image. I try and lower contrast and increase brightness but it appears a bit washed out. I have a feeling purchasing a new tv that is fully hdr ready will solve this issue instantly but that is about a year away. I am collecting 4k movies now not even so much for the bumped resolution but the beautifully-rich color enhancements (for some not all transfers). Is there anything to be done in emby or the shield to help mitigate this issue until I can buy a new tv? I don't have many 4k hdr movies and don't plan on collecting a ton (just a select few I rewatch, dark knight, infinity war etc) but it'd be nice to enjoy them right now instead of the (still good) blu-ray rips I've already done.
  7. Hi, happy new year to everybody I was just wondering, how do you guys manage shared universes/series cross overs in your library? For example DCs Arrow-Universe. I've all the shows in my library, but currently I've to manually look up in which order I've to watch them. Is there a feature in emby that can help me with that? Can I merge these shows together in a set like I can with movies? Can I create a smart playlist based on the air date of the episodes? Is there any other way to watch spin-offs/crossovers in the correct order? How do you do it in your private library? Has anybody developed a system/workflow for this?
  8. Hi, couldn't find find this question anywhere, so here goes. For several months now, I've had this weird navigation problem. Unfortunately I don't know exactly anymore, when this was introduced. Currently the App reports itself as: AndroidTv 1.6.62g Running on: Sony KD-65XD7504 The Problem is as follows: 1. Navigate to any TV show episode overview page (the one with chapters and actors and so on). 2. Visit any sub page like going to an actors page or starting the episode. 3. Upon pressing back, or having the episode finish playing, the overview page is displayed again. However, I can no longer navigate using the Arrow keys. Only after returning to the main menu or the "Season N - Episodes List" navigation Focus is restored. I work around this, by using the episode list view in seasons so i'll only have to go back 2 steps to select the next episode. My NVshield does not exhibit the same behaviour. Unfortunately i have no idea where to begin debugging this, so any help would be very much appreciated. greetings

    Live TV Channel Numbers in Guide

    Was wondering if there was a way to enable the channel numbers in the Live TV Channel guide on android? I have a lot of channels, searching them hangs up the server and scrolling through them I can easily get lost as to where I am in the lineup.

    TV guide update not happening

    Just wondering if anyone can spot a reason my scheduled TV guide update isn't happening. Am still using NextPVR plugin. NextPVR app updates at 21:40 and Emby (should) update at 22:00, but it seems to be taking approx 0.009 sec and not getting very much... Pretty sure this said 'Last ran 1 hour ago, taking 0 seconds' like 10 minutes ago (see logs) - and Could possibly be a one off, will have to see... embyserver.txt

    Feature Request for Live Tv

    Don't think this feature exists, if it does can someone please tell me how to go about doing it? I would like to limit Live TV channel availability to specific users. For example if I have 10 channels, user 1 can access channels 1-4 while user 2 can access all 10. I know I can manually select available channels for all via the HDHomeRun but its an all or nothing solution.

    Issue with Server / Feature Request

    First I would like to thank the development team for keeping to their word on a few of my other posts. The new server update is MUCH faster and snappier as promised. I am having a few issues now though, can't say if they are related to the new update or adding my HDHomeRun Prime to my Emby server a few weeks back. Everything on Emby runs extremely fast except the Live TV section when trying to load the Guide. The TV Guide takes a very very long time to load and can cause the server to hang up for other users that are online. In relation to this, I am subscribed to Schedules Direct. First issue is when it is updating the TV Guide, the server becomes unusable and extremely slow and unresponsive. Is there a fix for this? -Also can a feature be added where I can schedule what time of the day (say 4AM when no users are on) to schedule the TV guide refresh if there isn't something that can fix this. Also a new issue I noticed with the new server update. I recently bumped my server from 8GB to 16GB of RAM and noticed the server was using 14GB of that available RAM. I then bumped the VM from 16GB to 32GB of RAM and noticed the server once again was using 31.9GB of RAM. Which as a result caused the server to be slow and unresponsive. I currently run my sever on a VM with 1 Dedicated Xeon e5 2660 with 16 threads on the VM. 32GB of RAM. Dedicated 500GB 7200rpm hard drive to the VM and a dedicated gigabit NIC to the VM on FiOS Gigabit internet. Machine hosting the VM is 2x xeon e5 2660 and 128GB of RAM so dedicated resources aren't an issue.

    Live TV Recording Location

    So I noticed on my emby server that when watching live tv, my storage space is declining. Once it fills up, anyone watching TV is then kicked off and the temp files are deleted. Would the temp recording of what you are watching so you can rewind and fast forward be saved in the cache folder?

    TV section Thumbs appearing

    Seems to be new. Am 95% sure these thumbs used to be posters (and there was no doubling up of text).
  16. When I click on the play button over a TV Show (see screenshot below) it doesn't play the oldest unwatched episode available (as I expected)... it, for some reason, plays the oldest available episode even if it is marked as watched. Is this intended, a bug or am I doing something wrong? Thanks

    Cannot Correct Show Data

    Hello, I'm experiencing problems with a particular anime. .Hack//SIGN is known for being difficult in general due to the strange way the title is written. It's almost impossible to find online as it is without knowing how to spell it. I've found the correct variations that trigger Emby to identify it correctly, however when I identify, refresh the metadata, and try to change it, I keep getting stuck with a crappy new show called Hack which I've never heard of and couldn't care less about. Emby simply WILL NOT CHANGE my show to the correct one. I don't know what to do. Any suggestions? I tried to remove the anime, rename to folder, scan using the correct variation, and EVEN AFTER FINDING IT FRESHLY SCANNED, it still defaults to this crappy show and refuses to let me change it!!! UGH!!!!
  18. Hey, I've seen others do this, so it has to be possible. Looking to sort TV shows into genre subfolders (i.e. Action, Reality, ETC) on the Emby TV Homescreen Display. They are already sorted by genre in my file system. Any help is appreciated & I thank you for it. - I forget what my name is.

    Daily tv show naming not working

    I have a collection of a local tv show that runs daily (on weekdays). Suppose it's name is "Something Else", the episodes are named in the following order 1. Somthing_Else_0001.mkv 2. Somthing_Else_0002.mkv 3. Somthing_Else_0003.mkv . . . I checked out https://github.com/MediaBrowser/Wiki/wiki/TV%20naming#by-date and saw that they could be handled if I name them in the following order 1. Somthing_Else_2015-12-14.mkv 2. Somthing_Else_2015-12-15.mkv 3. Somthing_Else_2015-12-16.mkv . . . However, when I tried that, Emby collected all of them inside an "Unknown Season" season. How do I inform Emby that there is no concept of "Seasons" with this show, but only a sequential list of episodes ?
  20. Hey, I have recently organized my film-related files in on my external file system into genre categories and wish to do the same with television shows. Is this possible, as I can't find any material on how to accomplish this. Any help will be great. Thanks.
  21. As I gradually am getting my library transitioned into Emby one thing that I've noticed is that I have some TV shows where the anti-spoiler feature makes sense because the shows episodes have a lot of continuity. But for other shows continuity is not really an issue and I would normally hop around watching whichever episode interested me at the time (The Simpsons is an example of this kind of show). So I think it could be useful to add an option in the Series Metadata to enable or disable Anti-Spoiler functionality for that Series, and this setting would take precedence over any global setting. So we probably want to make the setting have three states along the lines of: Always Use Anti-Spoiler Features, Never Use Anti-Spoiler Features, and Respect Global Anti-Spoiler Settings (which would be the same as if this item is never set by the user, ie the default). Then folks can configure things whichever way makes sense for their collection. PS - If this is something you might like to see implemented, be sure to "Like" this top/first post (as well as any subsequent posts in this thread that highlight particular aspects of what you are interested in) -- "Liking" the top/first post helps the Devs to know how much interest there is in a given Feature Request.

    Can PS4 app be used externally?

    Hi, I've been attempting to get a friend online through the PS4, it works for me but of course, I am within my own network. For him, it connects on mobile but the PS4 version refuses to connect when using the manual option with the external IP. The same method is as stated being used on an iPhone by him through the chrome browser. I will add that I do have a premium account so I see no reason that it should not be working.
  23. hi ok i am looking for some info what are the best Android TV boxs ? that work well i know about the nvidia Shield but it is too pricey i have tried lots of boxs and most work well but they all have the same problem in that the TV guide is not displayed properly and it does not look like it will be fixed anytime soon. i am looking for tv boxs that the TV guide is displayed properly thank you Emby is the best
  24. Hey guys, I was looking through the forums and trying to figure out the right way to get just some basic OTA with TV Guide in USA. I have options on what to buy but cost seems to creep very quickly. It appears i'm stuck between too many products. Plex really doesn't work for me as it requires alot of external connections (Internet) but handles TV Guide well with HDHomerun. Emby has Live TV and Recording but seems like manual config(Not against this) or pay 25 a year for SD (Wife Veto). The Xbox One with the USB Tuner really does work pretty well and Guide comes through good and xbox glass for sharing but no recording. NextPVR has some Guide ability but seems sorta the same vein as ZAP XML route or can you use a Hauppauge tuner and get that data? Does the HDHomerun block OTA EPG? I'm not sure if I need recording as a requirement but having live TV with a guide would be. The part that I would like is using the same interface for movies and music and TV. The part that confuses me isn't this info part of DVB EPG that ANT gives you? Sorry if I just mushed too much research together!
  25. Plz, if and when u can add it to the store for Brazil too. Emby Server is great (and the Samsung TV app looks awesome), il'l make a donation for support (and to try the premium features too, but mainly for support as i think it's a great app and i want it to keep being developed and get better, plz keep adding free stuff too, i believe many people will support .)
