  1. I would like it to be able to go out the full 14 days everything else can go out to.

    Two usability suggestions

    1) When you change the day in the guide, it jumps back to midnight instead of trying to stay at the same hour you were looking at for the previous day. For example, if I was looking at 7pm on Monday and click on Tuesday, instead of staying at 7pm, it jumps back to Tuesday at midnight. 2) After deleting a recording, it jumps back to the very top menu instead of back one. Back one, in my case, would be going back to "Recordings." Related bug: I was able to click the back arrow to get back to the recording that was deleted. That shouldn't be possible.
  3. I use Emby's LiveTV with a CableCard via ServerWMC, and in my guide I have way too many channels (530, most of which I do not watch). Marking some as favorites to move to the top of the guide listing helps, but what I'd really like to do is have another tab on the LiveTV page that starts the guide listing with my HD channels at channel number 650 (the channel index is 322). I have been hacking around on the live server code in guide.js and have been able to change the StartIndex to 322 and occasionally see the results I want (when I run Emby in a new private window and thus don't have a caching problem). I reported on my results in the following thread, but I am now thinking I'd like to see this functionality become real. I envision a new HD guide tab on the LiveTV.html page, and some admin code for the user to turn the HD guide tab on and enter their first HD channel number (or wherever they want their customized listing to begin). But first, can I even accomplish a new tab on that page via a plugin? Or do I need to focus on contributions to the main? I'm no c-sharp wiz--I just compiled Emby for the first time today. A nudge in the right direction would be helpful. http://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/36070-feature-request-allow-users-to-change-startindex-for-guide-to-first-hd-channel/?hl=guide
  4. I was wondering if we could make it easier to use the Live TV guide to record/watch HD as opposed to SD. Mainly, I'd like the all the HD channels to show up first in the guide. Comcast has all my HD channels numbered from 650+. Currently I sorta do this by manually setting all of my favorite HD channels so they display first, but I've been looking at the Emby server code and trying to come up with a better way. It appears that the starting channel number is determined in tvGuide.js when reloadGuide initially calls channelsQuery and it sets the startIndex to 0 on first load. Would it be possible to have a admin user accessible setting to customize the channelsQuery startIndex to be the first desired channel number? E.g. the first HD channel... In my case that would 650, but other locations/providers would differ. Then the page +/- buttons could work forwards/backwards from there. I saw an old thread about something similar, filtering by HD, but Luke pointed out that the system can't easily determine which are HD. But the end user can definitely supply the number of the first HD channel. (Though it might also be possible to build some rudimentary intelligence in by scanning through the guide information channel names for the first channel with HD in its name... and having the suggested value in this field default to that...) Now I'm no C# whiz, but it seems like line 23 in the attached screenshot of tvGuide.js would be StartIndex: userStartIndex ? userStartIndex : 0, where userStartIndex would come from the admin setting page with first channel #. (Of course, the index likely doesn't map isomorphically to the actual channel number, so that UI routine might have to have do some translation from channel 650 to index xxx.) I know that's probably not how it will actually get done, but maybe I've started your brains ticking... Might even be useful to do the same thing for the channels tab. Thanks again for all your marvelous work devs. I'm already amazed I can watch Live TV in HD on a Roku 100 miles from my home.

    Guide Select Date issue

    The "Select Date" for switching dates in the guide is broken. it just shows a small white box and does not show any dates. I have refreshed guide and restarted server. Still have issue. Everything else seems fine. Version
  6. Recently I've noticed that in Live TV, "New" episodes aren't showing in the guide, under channel, or when you select the show that is "New". It appears to be only affecting mobile as when I use a computer to browse I see the "New" tag, thus ruling out an issue with Schedules Direct. I'm having this issue on my Nexus 6P running Android N build NPD35K. I understand that Android N might not be support as it's a beta Android, I'll check on my Nexus 7 later today that's on Android M. Screenshots attached.

    Guide Formatting issue

    When u view the guide for a single channel....the formatting is messed up. Its all just text and not set up in a table format like it used to be. Does it on all channels. Emby sever Version 3.0.5951.0

    Missing 1 Channel Guide info

    I'm missing Guide info in 1 Channel... 5.1 WFRVHD. This info is in WMC. This causes me to be unable to view this channel within emby. Web app and adroid app just spin when you select the channel. Roku dumps you back to the main menu unceremoniously. Screen shots of the WMC and Emby guides below. Log files in a separate post.

    Guide Slow Loading

    The Guide on Emby Live TV is excruciatingly slow to load and needs several page advances to get to some of the programming I want to tune. I knew I can set Favorites which show up at the top of the guide but sometimes I'm not looking for a Favorite Channel. I suspect that the guide needs to parse data from the internet each time i loads but could this be down with some sort of caching scheme to speed things up? I see this issue with the PlayOn app too so I think it is an issue with Emby that could be improved. Thoughts? Comments? Feedback? Is something in the works for this? I have no log to put up as I don't think this is something that will show in the logs. Thanks.

    No Program Data Available

    I noticed in the last couple of weeks all the sudden my OTA channels here in Denver, all so No Program Data Available. The regular cable channels I get through my provider all have guide information just fine, but most of the OTA guide information is missing? Is anybody else experiencing this? I've tried initiating a download of the guide information several times, and always end up with the same results. Thanks!
  11. I have the latest Emby client (1.1.05a) running on Fire TV stick. ServerWMC is the backend and Emby is the newest beta. If I filter all genres (all box checked), navigating the guide gives strange results. When I navigate, the highlight that shows the selected program isn't displayed, or the highlight jumps forward in time off the screen. Or you can correctly navigate in one direction, but the highlight disappears when you navigate in the other direction. I don't see any pattern to this. Eventually, the highlight seems to start working again. Also, when no genre's are filtered, I've always seen strange results when navigating up or down. Sometimes the highlight will move forward in time on it's own. That is, when you navigate down to the next channel, it might select the program airing in the immediate future, not the currently airing program. And then navigating down again, it might move to another program further in the future.

    Guide settings

    1 - Can we add a channel configurator similar to WMC? Allowing me to completely hide channels? 2 - Is there anyway to switch off the hover feature in the browser(Edge) guide? Right now, if i am scrolling using the mouse wheel, a channel is randomly showing in a popup window.. If I hover my mouse over the channel number while scrolling with the wheel it is working ok, but it is not intuitive..

    Suppress Certain Items From Showing

    Is there a way that I can force Emby to NOT show certain items on the main screen? My PC doesn't have a tuner card, so the Recorded TV, Live TV and Guide folders are redundant. Moreover, I tried adding the Music folder into Emby and it conflicts with the way Windows Media Player works, so I don't use Music as part of my media collection.
  14. I have two issues that I'm unsure where to start with. First, when viewing the TV Guide on my Nexus Player, the left side of the guide (the part that displays the Station Name and Channel Number) is significantly cut-off. It almost appears that I'm seeing cutoff on left, right, and below the guide, but it's most noticeable on the left side. I've attached a picture I took to help demonstrate what I'm seeing. I encounter this in both the standard TV guide and the new Live TV Guide that is still in beta testing. I haven't run into this anywhere else within the App. Is there a setting to adjust the guide dimensions somewhere that could potentially be causing this? I've encountered this from the first day I tried Emby so I don't believe it to be an issue strictly in the beta path so I've posted it here. The second issue I'm having is that there are times when it appears that Emby isn't attempting to stream fast enough from my HDHomerun. I encounter significant image breakup and audio dropouts which would seem to indicate that perhaps it was a maxed out CPU, but if I look at my CPU usage it's below 10% for FFMPEG, which in and of itself isn't correct. Normally viewing HD programs I'll see usage up near 50% depending on current motion. I look at the HDHomerun's tuner status and the output bitrate is significantly lower than it should be for the program I'm viewing (HD shouldn't be below 2 Mbps in Heavy Mode even in h.264 unless it's a static image and it's most certainly not when I'm looking at this) I don't know which log you'd need for this issue (transcode or server) so let me know which you need and I'll supply whichever. I've encountered this issue on many versions of server both Dev and Release which is why I'm posting it outside of the Testing forum. My current versions of everything is below for reference. Thanks. Windows 10 Emby Server - 3.0.5772.319 Nexus Player Android 6.0 Emby Android TV - 1.1.15.g

    Guide No longer works

    The guide just stopped showing up entirely. Just loads a blank page now in an browser. Android app loads Guide, but it is extremely slow. I restarted the server, even rebooted the computer. I ran the scheduled tasks to refresh library and guide....nothing. log attached Log.txt
  16. Downloading the guide is quite slow with a large number of channels, even with a fast network and fast clients. It would be a good feature to be able to limit the number of hours retrieved/displayed to speed it up. For example, you could download 4 hours instead of 12. Also, it must be architectural because the guide is slow regardless of the client. Even when limited to just 50 channels, it's way slower than the guides built into cable or satellite receivers. Whatever method the clients use to retrieve and store this information is probably ripe for a rewrite.

    EPG data gone since Live TV changes

    I was happily using NextPVR on a remote server with EPG info working without any 3rd party EPG provider (Schedules Direct etc) and now since the integration of EmbyTV into Live TV, I'm having issues. 1. I had to reconfigure my NextPVR tuners - got that working.. at least I can see them as "Available" tuners in LiveTV. 2. I have no guide data in Emby anymore! When I hit http://remotenextpvrserver:8866 I see the "beautiful" NextPVR web interface complete with EPG data. Any ideas why the EPG data isn't showing up in Emby under Live TV?
  18. Version 3.0.5713.6 Live TV Service: New fancy internal Tuner support Tuner: HDHomeRun Prime Guide Source: Schedules Direct Other Things Installed: My Channel Logos XL Browser: Chrome Version 44.0.2403.157 m Note: Show favorites only is enabled is about 75 out of 250 channels showing. Hi folks, I'm seeing if anyone else is having this issue. My guide seems to be working fine, but the programs listed don't line up with the channel listings on the left. I'm not sure what the cause is, but I listed everything I could think of above that may be involved with the problem. Thanks everyone.

    FR: LiveTV Web Guide

    Hi, when viewing the tv guide in the web browser would it be possible to set a recording straight from the show info popup? This would be on the basis that you are going to accept your defaults for padding. It would be so quick to just hover then click record. Cheers Latchmor

    TV Guide Data Missing

    Emby Server Version 3.0.5621.4 Server WMC Version, build: 1190 This problem has existed for many versions now. In the web client, in the android app, and in the Fire TV app, no TV Guide data is displayed. I can tune channels and watch them.

    Refresh Guide task

    For some reason I have a "Refresh Guide" task running every 4 hours - but this task does not exist on the Scheduled Tasks page, so I can't change that schedule. I don't even have Live TV installed - so why is that task even running at all? Please also see this related post: Triggers running at wrong times
  22. As a temporary solution, you will now need to configure gamebrowser for Mediabrowser Classic manually by editing the xml file. This is a fairly simple process as you just need to edit your xml so it looks like the sample one below, changing the <executable>path</executable> section to the path of your emulator, and adding the appropriate <switches> The xml is found at programdata\mediabrowser-classic\plugins\configurations\gamebrowser.xml, just open it in notepad or something similar. The switches can be found at the bottom of this thread http://mediabrowser.tv/community/index.php?/topic/16380-gamebrowser-guide/ <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <GameBrowserSettings xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema"> <GameSystems> <anyType xsi:type="GameSystem"> <Name>Gamecube</Name> <Executable>C:\Program Files\Dolphin\Dolphin.exe</Executable> <Switches>"--exec={rom}"</Switches> </anyType> <anyType xsi:type="GameSystem"> <Name>Nintendo</Name> <Executable>C:\Program Files (x86)\Nestopia V1.36\nestopia.exe</Executable> <Switches>"{rom}"</Switches> </anyType> <anyType xsi:type="GameSystem"> <Name>Nintendo 64</Name> <Executable>C:\Program Files (x86)\Project64 2.1\Project64.exe</Executable> <Switches>"{rom}"</Switches> </anyType> <anyType xsi:type="GameSystem"> <Name>Nintendo Wii</Name> <Executable>C:\Program Files\Dolphin\Dolphin.exe</Executable> <Switches>"--exec={rom}"</Switches> </anyType> <anyType xsi:type="GameSystem"> <Name>PS2</Name> <Executable>C:\Program Files (x86)\PCSX2 1.0.0\pcsx2-r5350.exe</Executable> <Switches>"{rom}"</Switches> </anyType> <anyType xsi:type="GameSystem"> <Name>Sony Playstation</Name> <Executable>C:\Program Files (x86)\ePSXe190\ePSXe.exe</Executable> <Switches>-nogui -loadbin "{rom}"</Switches> </anyType> <anyType xsi:type="GameSystem"> <Name>Super Nintendo</Name> <Executable>C:\Program Files (x86)\ZSNES V1.51\zsnesw.exe</Executable> <Switches>"{rom}"</Switches> </anyType> <anyType xsi:type="GameSystem"> <Name>Nintendo DS</Name> <Executable>C:\Program Files (x86)\desmume-0.9.10-win32\DeSmuME_0.9.10_x86.exe</Executable> <Switches>"{rom}"</Switches> </anyType> <anyType xsi:type="GameSystem"> <Name>Game Boy Advance</Name> <Executable>C:\Program Files (x86)\VisualBoyAdvance-1.8.0-beta3\VisualBoyAdvance.exe</Executable> <Switches>"{rom}"</Switches> </anyType> </GameSystems> <DosGames /> <WinGames /> <EnableQuitKey>true</EnableQuitKey> <SelectedQuitKey>36</SelectedQuitKey> </GameBrowserSettings> sample xml courtesy of @@buddyweiser
  23. Since I just did a clean install of an Openelec box with XBMB3C I figured I'd write a quick guide for new users interested in testing out XBMB3C and MBS. It's meant to be a no fluff, quick and dirty guide. Maybe I'll come back through and add pretty pictures for the illiterate later, but it's not a priority for me at the moment. Install Openelec and boot into XBMC Download the XBMB3C Repo and upload it to the downloads directory of your Openelec box In XBMC go to Addons, Choose 'Install from ZIP file', browse to the repo zip you just uploaded to your downloads directory, install it Go to Addons, Choose get more add ons, select the XBMB3C repo you installed, go to Video Addons, Choose 'XBMB3C', choose 'Install' Go to Addons, Choose get more add ons, select the XBMB3C repo you installed, go to Skins, Choose a skin you like (I recommend Aeon Nox Gotham), choose 'Install' Go to Programs, then XBMB3C, Press 'C' and choose Addon Settings, enter in your MBS information and tweak the settings how you like or leave most defaults Go to System, Appearance, at the bottom change settings level to 'Advanced' Go to 'Mode' section of Appearance settings, enable Media Browser modes Enjoy.

However, we haven't verified the process lately so it is possible it is out of date. Please let us know of your experience if you attempt this. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Getting MKV and other media files to play directly on your Xbox 360 with Media Browser 3, and Media Browser Classic, can be a frustrating experience. Trust me, I’ve been there, and I have spent many hours banging my head trying to figure out how to get it to work. Seemingly at times I thought I had everything setup correctly, but Media Browser would end up transcoding the file, or unable to play it all. It was a mystery for a while to me, and the behavior was hard to track down. I’ve read countless forums, some even suggesting that this simply won’t work. That is the furthest thing from the truth. Through many efforts I discovered how to get this to work fairly easily, as long as you know what you need to do, and the exact steps to do it! With Xbox 360s going for under $99 now, more and more people are going to take the plunge. I figured I would write this tutorial to save everyone time and their sanity. You can finally start enjoying your Windows Media Center experience like you should. Simply stated having this work under Media Browser Classic is an awesome experience! The interface is unmatched to anything else that is out there. Setting up the server backend correctly: 1. You’ll of course want to have Media Browser 3 installed on a server already. In my setup I have Windows Media Center separated from my NAS. My NAS is simply a Windows 7 machine, with Media Browser installed on it, and all my media files are located on the same server. 2. Setup your Media Browser libraries. Ensure that Media Browser is pointed to your libraries by using UNC Shares and NOT local drives. Even if Media Browser is on the same system as your media files like mine, DO NOT use local drive paths (D:\Movies), instead type in the UNC path \\MEDIASERVER\Movies for example. 3. DO NOT use the Path Substitution option in Media Browser. If you use UNC paths, this should be more than sufficient. I’ve had strange behaviors when using this instead to translate local drive paths. 4. Create a user with Administrator rights to your Media Libraries. In my setup it is called mcuser. Create the same user on both your Media Center server, and your NAS. (If they are separate machines.) 5. Ensure you setup your media libraries in Windows Media Center as well, providing the credentials for mcuser. 6. Use this tool, to give the MCX#-SERVERNAME Administrator access to your media libraries by using the above wmcuser account. http://tobias-tobin.blogspot.com/2008/08/giving-media-center-extender-access-to.html Note: If your Media Browser server, and Windows Media Center machine are on the same server, step 5 and 6 may not be necessary, but I am unable to verify this at this time. In addition you'll need to have a separate account that has full Administrator rights to your libraries. More information on how the tool works is available on the website. 7. Load a CODEC pack on your Windows Media Center server. I prefer Shark007, but others may work with some tweaking. Get it here: http://shark007.net. Use Shark's recommended settings on both 32-bit and 64-bit CODECs, and says yes to the Live TV, Xbox 360 question. In addition under MKV, I choose to use Alternative Extender support. 8. If you have not already done so install Media Browser Classic on your Windows Media Center machine and make sure it launches. 9. Launch the Media Browser Classic Configuration program, and go to the extender+iso tab. Ensure that Enable Transcode 360 is UNCHECKED. Transcoding is bad, we do not want it! 10. While in the extender+iso tab under extender formats, ensure you put the media extensions you want to play natively, such as .MKV or .MP4 . Setting up your Xbox360: Here is where it got weird and this is key. It took me a while to figure these exact steps out. However, first, a little background: it’s a little known fact that Microsoft has released a new version of the Optional Media Update that will play MKVs and other media files natively. Originally Microsoft has had several versions of this program, but not all of them will play MKVs. This coincides with the update they have released for the Xbox ONE. However, the trick is getting the right version to download, which isn’t as obvious as you would think. From my experience, without having an Xbox LIVE membership it’s not possible to download the necessary update. In addition, I was NOT able to get the right version by downloading it manually (searching the app store). Like I said In order to get the proper version, it will be necessary to have an Xbox LIVE membership. As far as I can tell, the correct version is only available for XBOX Live members. If you are not already a member you will need to create an account and sign up for a membership. Note: The first month is free, so you can sign-up temporarily and cancel if you so desire once you get the update. The update should remain on the Xbox 360 even if you no longer have a membership. In order to get the correct update, perform the following steps: 1. If you do not already have an Xbox LIVE membership go to live.xbox.com and either create a new user, or setup an existing one that you will use on all your extenders with a subscription (this will unfortunately require a Credit Card). Note: You cannot just create an account. Simply, having an account will NOT be enough to download the correct Optional Media Update. 2. Now power on your Xbox 360 extender and navigate to the Xbox Dashboard. If your extender launches immediately to Windows Media Center, exit and go back to the Xbox Dashboard. 3. We first need to check to see if you have the older version of Optional Media Update first by going to Settings > System > Storage > Hard Drive > System Items. If it’s there delete it. If we do not remove it, the Xbox will not update the current version we have. 4. If you created a new account you will need to download the profile to your Xbox 360 Extender you just made from Xbox LIVE. Here is a link that explains how to do it: http://support.xbox.com/en-US/my-account/manage-gamertag-and-profile/download-your-xbox-live-profile-to-another-360-console 5. Once your profile is downloaded, ensure that you login to that profile by choosing it under the Social dashboard. You can also enable automatic login to this profile, by going to Settings > Profile > Sign-in Preferences > Profile Auto Sign-In > On which is preferable for a Windows Media Center extender. If you just added a subscription to an existing account, I found that I add to delete the profile on the Xbox, and download it again as described above to get it to recognize the new subscription. The key to this whole thing is to have an active connection to Xbox LIVE. If you don’t it won’t download the Optional Media Update that you need. 6. Now launch Windows Media Center on your Xbox 360. 7. In order to get the proper update, you’ll need to make sure that you have your movie or TV show media libraries available natively in Windows Media Center, WITHOUT using Media Browser Classic. Clicking on a movie or TV Show from the regular Windows Media Center interface, will allow the Xbox 360 to come up with a screen that will prompt you to download the new version of the Optional Media Update. For some reason if you use Media Browser Classic it will block the download from occurring even when though the screen comes up initially. However, the dialog box to download the update disappears. Using the regular Windows Media Center interface will allow you to do this. In addition DO NOT use Recorded TV, it will never prompt you because Windows Media Center sees these as native media files, which should be .WTV. The media file has to be an MKV or MP4 to have the Xbox 360 initiate a download for the Optional Media Update. 8. Reboot your Xbox 360 extender, and re-launch Windows Media Center. 9. Now go into Media Browser Classic, and navigate to your libraries. Choose your favorite movie or TV Show and enjoy direct playback without Media Browser transcoding them! Yay quality! You’ll also be able to tell if the program is being transcoded or direct played by going to the Media Browser dashboard. Under Server > Active Devices > hover your mouse on the device that is streaming and it will tell you if it is Direct Play or Transcoding the file. Note: You’ll need to do this on every Xbox 360 Extender you have. Hope this guide serves you guys and gals well. Enjoy!
