Hey guys, just wondering if anyone's experiencing laggy/choppy emby theater desktop user interface? i've had this issue since day dot of the new theater, across multiple PC's, multiple TV's, and still unable to pinpoint it. Both boxes I've tried it on have been dedicated HTPC's, with nothing but NVidia drivers, emby server, emby theatre, windows 10 and windows 10 with CU, mpchc, lav, madvr. The current hardware it's running on is asus maximus ix rog mobo, i7-7700K, 16gbddr4-3200mhz, m.2 intel ssd, and gtx 1070, displayed on a Samsung KS9000 tv. Surely this hardware is capable of running the UI smoothly? I've also tried changing the increasing the priority on the electron and emby.theatre processes in taskmanager, running as administrator, adjusting NVidia driver settings to run exe's with different quality/performance settings, etc. I've tried reinstalling NVidia drivers, and re-installing emby theatre. I've noticed the emby theatre UI doesn't load up true full screen no matter what, but instead as a full screen sized window. I found in older versions I was able to shrink to a smaller window, and then re-maximize which would go proper full screen, and I'd get slightly better UI performance, but no dice this time around. Has no effect at all. I'll get a few good seconds of buttery smooth UI transitions, and then jitter city like I've gone back into 23hz. What I've just thought of now but haven't tested is wiping out all artwork, and getting it to re-download it all to a single location (cache area of emby theater on the ssd).. if that's possible.. instead of the media folders.. or does emby server grab the artworks from the local media folders and cache them anyway? accessing it from there? another thing to note: emby server is pointing to local drives, ie: G:\Storage\, as opposed to network location \\MEDIA-PC\Storage, as Emby Theater is also running on the same box as the server app. anyone experienced it or know anything else I can try? Cheers
I am experiencing serious frame drops on several movies when played on any of my Roku3 devices. Movies are played directly (without transcoding) but the image has little movement: it seems a sequence of stills with a lot of frames dropped in between them. Same movies play fine on Windows 8 app (direct play) and on Chrome browser (transcoded). This does not occur with all movies, so I did lots of tests to better determine the scenario (e.g.: codecs) that causes this phenomenon. The common factors to every movie with this problem are: Container: MKV Audio: AC3 AVIs with AC3 audio streams are not problem as they all get transcoded. I disabled AC3 (DD) passthrough on the Roku configuration. This setup made MKVs with AC3 audio streams to be transcoded. As they are transcoded they play fine with no jitter/frame drops. This is, though, no solution: disabling AC3 also disables DTS and thus all movies are transcoded resulting on only on 2 audio channels. I suspect this problem relates to Roku's new firmware as these movies used to play fine on same Rokus. So if anybody could just test MKVs/AC3 on a Roku and share the result it would be very good. My setup is as it follows: MB Server version: 3.0.5518.7 Roku app version: 1.87 Roku firmware version: 6.1 build 5604
