  1. Hello My android tv, box tv, is with android version 4.4.2 Where can I download the app for this version of android? I try to install by the appstore but it says that the version is not compatible with the device that I have. Where can I download old versions? Thank you
  2. Android TV: Confirmed bug on both 1.5.83g (beta) and 1.5.66g If I'm within 10sec of the end of a TV show and I click the right/skip button to skip the credits (or spoilers for next weeks episode), it REWINDS back to -10sec before the end of the show. So if there are 5secs left and I right click to skip ahead to the end (so the next episode will start), it rewinds so there are 10secs left. If I keep clicking right it will just keep jumping back, in an infinite loop.
  3. Hi, I am long time Emby server user and I really enjoy using it, but have been using Kodi as a Client till today. Bought a Shield TV, so wanted to use the native App, especially since now Themes are supported. I really like the Windows Media Center theme, but I would like to have the option everywhere only to show the Theme backdrop and not the Item Backdrop. That is already possible while browsing, but not in the details screen. That option would really reduce that busy look compared to when backdrops are shown. Furthermore I would love the option to hide the initial side bar, when opening the App on the left side, as all the content is anyway displayed on the right side. That would make the Windows Media Center Theme look really close to the original look with the modern touch of Android. Appreciating any feedback from the developers. Thanks a lot for the great App And of course e for the great support here
  4. Hi, I have an 2017 nVidia Shield connected directly to my stereo TV. For Audio, I have a pair of Sennheiser Headphones (TR195) which accept a digiital PCM signal... Is there any way in which I can enforce Audio encoding from DD, DTS etc to PCM? Either from the App or the Server will do. At the moment everything is encoded/decoded to Stereo and I wanted to see if audio is improved - maybe surround sound? via PCM. thanks
  5. The Android TV app does not record the login information. Every time I open the application, I have to enter the login. Can you register automatically? O aplicativo Android TV não grava as informações de login. Toda vez que eu abrir o aplicativo, eu tenho que entrar no login. Você pode se registrar automaticamente?

    Sony Bravia - Android TV

    Hey Guys, I am thinking about buying a Sony Bravia XE9005 TV. It has Android TV and Chromecast built in. I am currently using a connecion from Computer to TV with Emby media for windows and I have always liked that with the Chocolate theme. What are the options for player etc? I am not a coder so I could not begin to create any themes sadly.
  7. I am having a couple of playback problems on my philips android tv, using emby for android tv. It has worked well for a long time, but recently the server has started transcoding due to a not supported bitrate, that I think have worked well earlier. Even more recently, I cannot play the video at all. I attached a log, where I can see that a null reference error is thrown when I try to start the playback of vikings season 5 episode 1: System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object. at MediaBrowser.Model.Dlna.StreamBuilder.GetVideoDirectPlayProfile (... I am getting the same error for all other videos as well. My other clients play everything as expected, such as emby for android (phone), embycon on libreelec on RPi, emby for kodi and the web client. server-63655188528 - Copy (2).txt
  8. Hi i am having problems with Emby for android i am running a Emby server with the latest server software Version and i was running Emby for android V2.9.86 but found that the tv guide was very very slow to load and it would cause the device to freeze then crash so i uninstalled that one and installed V2.9.07 the tv guide works fine but this one has other problems like if you set the quality to anything other than Direct it would most of the time just not play the tv channel it will just go back to the previous screen. so i tried Emby android TV v1.5.32g problems with the tv guide plus you can't change audio track it will just crash on you, and it would be nice if it loaded/changed tv channels faster like it does when you enable the VLC player with it. all in all not so good now i know that with all the changes made to the server software the apps are going to play up but if i could just get one to work properly would be a start and any news on when the next server update will be out for windows ? apart from that thank you for a great job (most of the time ) just kidding Dallier
  9. Android TV -- this bug report comes from a discussion started here. Scenario: - I have the 30min auto-logoff feature enabled (to allow my TV to go to sleep if content was left paused) - I'm watching a movie/TV show and have it paused near the end (say 96%) - When the auto-logoff feature kicks in it will stop playback which will trigger Emby server to erroneously mark it as watched The only available solution to this bug currently is to disable Emby from marking content as watched unless it's played through to 100% (which is undesirable). Proposed Solution: Whenever playback is stopped, the event sent to the server should indicate if playback was stopped by the user or not (ie "user initiated"). If this value/flag is missing the server can treat the event as user-initiated (so that this feature can slowly be rolled out to all clients). When the server receives a playback stopped event that was NOT user-initiated (such as due to the auto-logoff feature, or an idle timeout feature), the server will save the progress exactly as reported and not make any changes to the watched status (ie the server will only apply the automatic mark-as-watched feature when playback was stopped by the user).

    IS the EMBY app free for Android TV .
  11. Hallo, I'm using Emby together with tvheadend 4.2.3 on a Debian Linux server. I've subscribed to Emby Premiere to test it before buying the lifetime pass I managed to connect these two via the Emby Plugin "TVHclient" For watching my media, I'm using the Android TV app (from the Play Store) on a Minix U9-H Android Box. My problem is: When watching TV recordings (via "Live TV" => "recordings") the recordings start, but when I want to seek forward or backwards, I only get the message "Unable to seek". The recordings are stored as H.264 + AAC files on the tvheadend server (profile "webtv-h264-aac-matroska"). As the better integration of tvheadend is my main reason for switching from Plex to Emby: How can I configure Emby and/or tvheadend to make the recordings seekable? By the way: When using the normal Android App for Emby on a Moto Z Play phone, the recording does not even start. I notice that the server starts transcoding (at least the CPU usage rises a lot), but the screen does not show anything. But as the Android TV app is more important, let's focus on this first. Thanks a lot! Kind regards Anna
  12. So right now if I choose to play in external player, it only recognize it as 'stream', makes it impossible to easily search for subtitle in MX Player. Is it possible for it to pass the filename to MX Player so it can search subtitle properly? Thanks
  13. I'm having a lot of trouble with a new Xiaomi Mi Box (Android TV) -- the app is very unstable on this device (which is weird since I rarely have issues on my Shield or Fire TV). It crashes so frequently the app isn't really usable. I have NOT submitted a crash report from within the app yet, but I did do the built-in Android "Report" that happens after a force close ("Emby isn't responding."). It was submitted around 2017-10-19 19:55 MST (Pacific Daylight) -- are you able to look at that report for debug information? I'll get a report sent from within the app in the next day or so.

    Xiaomi Mi Box

    Luke is there any chance of having more control over how things look on MiBox or Android Tv? it just looks plain and not a lot of options to change how it looks. Or am i asking for to much,i no you hands and plate full. thanks
  15. Hi, I don't know if this issue is related to Emby or Android TV. My TV is a Sony (KD-55X8505C) and I'm totally happy with the picture quality in general. Last week I've tried to play some HDR videos in Emby and I'm having some strange behaviour. When I play an HDR video I got perfectly black pixels within the video itself but when the video is 21:9 the black bars at the top and bottom are grey. Unfortunately it's not possible to check the picture settings as the playback stops when opening the actions menu of the Sony TV. Netflix doesn't have this issue - Amazon not tested yet. Anyone else struggling with this issue? Regards matze276
  16. Hello, I just returned from a 2 month business trip and all my syncing was done on my smaller tablet. I was curious if sync for Android TV could be implemented since these newer TV devices are pretty easy to take along and connect in rooms while traveling. My use case: I have a Shield TV and it supports SD cards and external drive attachments. During my stay the hotel wifi was great for syncing (daytime and late night) but was too slow for real time streaming. As a "road warrior" these devices can be setup and left to sync while working or sleeping but also easily connected to TV's in hotels or friends houses etc. Syncing was a great way to keep up with shows and series that my wife and I watch and discuss but it would of been great to do this with the TV and not a smaller tablet screen. I know its not a common request but for those of us that travel and stay for work, these devices, coupled with sync would be a great companion. Thanks for any feedback!
  17. I recently bought a pretty nice Android TV mini-computer. I did so with the intention of running Emby Server on it. I want to build the server here, then I plan on relocating it to a different location once it is completed and functional, along with the USB hard drives that will contain the movie files.. I am struggling to figure out how to do that... I searched the Google Playstore for "Emby Server for Android TV". It showed an app called "Emby for Android TV". I assumed it was exactly what I wanted, so I downloaded and installed the app on my new box. It installed fine, but doesn't appear to be the Emby Server, but rather an Emby client that looks for an Emby Server to connect to. Is there an actual Emby Server for Android TV application out there somewhere? I cannot find it anywhere. I also have a large Windows 10 box running Emby Server. This is my main Media PC for our home. We have 3 TV's, each with their own Kodi box accessing the Emby movie library. The actual movies are located on a NAS. I only mention this primary Emby Server because I don't want its existence to hinder the building out of the new Emby server that I'm trying to establish. Thank you for any help or guidance you can provide me...
  18. Every other platform is getting a facelift. When does Android TV get one?
  19. Sony TV has automatically updated to KODI 17. For some reason TV shows are not merging together in my kodi library on this tv although series are appearing merged in emby server and on my other android tv running kodi 16.1. In my TV library on the emby server I have a path directed to files on a mycloud and a local file path on the computer. I have reinstalled emby add on in KODI 17 but no luck. Although I can still access everything, it is annoying that a TV show is showing up twice with different episodes. Any ideas for what to do next? I'm a bit stumped.
  20. The problem appears to be remuxing but it appears to me there is no reason for it to be remuxing. It skips, it is annoying. Works fine on Windows (because no remuxing). Confirmed on: ​-Leelbox MXQ Pro (Amlogic S905) -Leelbox Master (Amlogic S905X) -NVIDIA SHIELD TV (newest version) Server: -Intel Xeon E3-1230V3 (4c/8t, 3.3 GHz) -8 GiB DDR3 -10/100/1000 NIC -RAID1 SSDs OS/transcoding temp/Emby Server install location ​-3 TB 7200 RPM HDD for recordings ​-Windows Server 2012 R2 TV Tuners: -HDHomeRun EXTEND -HDHomeRun EXTEND -HDHomeRun EXTEND Network: ​-gigabit everywhere -the entire path is wired (server, HDHomeRuns, Android TV boxes) -Only part that isn't gigabit is the HDHomeRun and Amlogic boxes (because 10/100 NIC standard) Channel: Laff 9.3 ​-Container: MPEG, I think. I attached 1 MiB of the stream downloaded via IE11 from the HDHomeRun EXTEND (stream_snippet.zip). There's no clear headers in here from what I can tell. Including this because it might be the cause of the problem. -Video: MPEG4 Video (H264) 704x480 (4:3) 29.97fps [V: h264 high L4.0, yuv420p, 704x480] -Audio: Dolby AC3 48000Hz stereo 192kbps [A: English [eng] (ac3, 48000 Hz, stereo, 192 kb/s)] Software: -Emby Server: -Emby for Android TV: 1.3.20g I can't remember subchannels ever not being a problem with Emby for Android TV (either because of transcoding with HDHomeRun CONNECT or remuxing HDHomeRun EXTEND). I believe they work fine using the HDHomeRun beta app on the same devices. This applies to all of the subchannels, live TV or playing back a recording from a subchannel. Attached logs (remux.zip) from today showing the remuxing on NVIDIA SHIELD TV. remux.zip stream_snippet.zip
  21. It kind of sucks that this "recommendations row" can't be outright hidden but the fact it can't and the fact that Emby can use it, I think I see an opportunity. My understanding is that Emby can't give recommendations unless it has a user logged in. For personal SHIELDs, this isn't a problem but in a multi-user situation, no user is logged in by default so no recommendations are shown initially. Suggestion: If Emby for Android TV has no user logged in and therefore has no recommendations to offer, use a guest account and offer the Live TV channels as recommendations. If they back out of the Live TV channel they tuned to, give them the channel guide. If they back out of that, close Emby (assumption being they're not watching any more or a user is going to log in). Think a cable box or satellite receiver system...try to mimic that with "recommendations" being the portal to it. I could see regular users using this too due to simplicity. For example, a lot of people like turning on the news at certain times of the day. That's something that's really only viewed live and once it is over, they turn it off. Showing the news channel in recommendations would as closely mimic tuning to the TV channel normally with the added benefit of being able to pause it. I really hope this idea can be implemented. I think a lot of users I deal with (myself included) would really appreciate it.
  22. Hello, I can not seek/resume videos which require remuxing on my NVIDIA Shield using the Emby for Android TV's internal Player (exoplayer?). Whenever I try to resume, rewind or fast forward a video that is being remuxed, the video skips to the correct frame it is supposed to continue from but then stays there. According to ffmpeg logs and watching the size of the created tmp directory file transcoding works fine. If I play the video from beginning to end it works just fine. Also videos that are "direct play" or transcoded work fine including seek and resume - only "direct stream" is a problem. Workarounds are switching to use external player (vlc) or setting max bitrate low to force transcoding. What I have tried: - switching audio to "direct" and "downmix to stereo" - accessing emby server directly (8920 and 8096) - accessing emby server via nginx reverse proxy (ssl and unencrypted) - nginx: with and without http2 enabled - access emby server by hostname or ip - switching ffmpeg versions (3.1.4, 3.1.5, ffmpeg-git-20160215-64bit-static) - move transcoding temp folder to local or nfs storage This has been happening across several emby-server and emby for android tv versions. Possibly related: https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/43008-on-remux-android-tv-times-out-too-many-errors/ though I do not receive any errors on the client. Interestingly enough while trying various settings/configurations fast forwarding worked on one occasion yesterday though not repeatable. There is nothing in the server or ffmpeg logs which is different from attempts where it fails. I attached the logs of the attempt where the first fast forward worked (ffmpeg -ss 00:05:26.589 ...) while the second attempt on the same video with the same settings about 30 seconds later failed (ffmpeg -ss 00:11:21.392 ...). ffmpeg1.txt ffmpeg2_fast_forward_success.txt ffmpeg3_fast_forward_fail.txt server.txt
  23. This problem has been going on for a while and I upgraded the server from HDDs to SSDs to try to speed it up but it didn't help. This is an issue regardless if the device is connected via wireless or wired. It manifests in two scenarios: 1) Cold booting Android TV device, go straight to Emby, and it can take up to a minute to get the user list. How this usually presents: a) spinning dial sign in with Emby Connect screen c) back out of app (not using Emby Connect) and run Emby again so it retries with the manual data d) repeat steps 1-3 or presented with user login screen 2) The device was put to sleep with Emby running (e.g. it is sitting at TV show info screen). In this scenario, Emby is completely unresponsive with no spinning dial, error message, or anything until reconnection is established with the server. In both situations, providing the user with more information would be hugely beneficial. I propose the following stages: 1) Waiting for network connection... Do I have an IP address? 2) Network connection found... I have an IP address. 3) Attempting to reconnect with Emby Server <(address if available)>... Does an Emby Server exist at the location I've been instructed to check? 4) Logging in <username>... Yes, try logging in as the last user.* At any point in this reconnection sequence, allow "abort" which takes you back to the Emby Connect/manual login screen. If the above times out, additionally offer a "retry" button to restart the connection process. * More broadly, it would be nice if each application/device had a setting to choose between multi-user and single-user. Some devices tend to get used by more than one user so the login screen should always be shown; some devices tend to get used by one user so it should always automatically log in. I think the web UI has this feature but Emby Home Theater and Android TV do not.
  24. Playback Error When I try to play a specific movie on either my Android TV box or my OnePlus 3 I get the attached error message, the Android TV client attempts it a couple of times before failing completely... If I navigate to this file directly and play it in VLC for Android or SPMC it plays fine, I've watched the film through and it's not corrupt or anything like that so I don't understand what's going on..? The error log doesn't seem to give much away but I gather it's not transcoding for whatever reason, I have created a custom path to a temp transcoding folder in the hope that would fix it, I've also downloaded the latest version of ffmpeg and pointed Emby to use that version instead as a just in case but nothing works... So I'm here to put it to you guys :-) Attached is the screenshot from Android and the log it produces on the server... Cheers! :-) transcode-log.txt

    Nexus Player - MPEG2 Playback

    Hi all, I was just wondering if, since the nexus player (with developer preview M) has MPEG2 hardware decoding now, Live Television could be streamed (for lack of a better term) rather than being transcoded? Or am I missing something? Is .ts remuxed to MPEG2 then transcoded to h264/aac? Thanks for any responses! I know that this will not effect many individuals but it may also help those running the windows Emby app with Live TV. Just a thought! Empire
