    Schedule/Series Access

    I gave someone access to Live TV just so they can see the guide. My upload speed is not good enough to allow streaming. I locked down everything I could, but the user can still see Recordings/Series tab and see what has recorded and what is scheduled to be recorded. How can I lock this down further?

    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.

    IceTV support

    Hi, Could IceTV support be added to Emby Server guide providers, so we are not forced to use XMLTV? They now have an API http://forum.icetv.com.au/iceforum/announcements/4/icetv-api-documentation/5065/.
  4. I am attempting to replace XBOX 360 Extender and Media Center with XBOX One and Emby I have two HD Homeruns as tuners attached to XFINITY cable cards TV - Sony KDL-52XBR9 Among the problems: 1 - The Guide is clunky and requires to many clicks to start a live program 2 - Some stations Direct Stream 3 - Some stations transcode I can play all these stations directly to the TV via DLNA through the HD HOMERUNS with no problems (of course I can't record etc) - This bypasses Emby And all works great with the extender and WMC - too bad Microsoft dropped support I have been patien

    ServerWMC info

    ServerWMC is a windows program that allows a Windows Media Center (WMC) installation on one machine to act as a PVR backend for Emby. This enables Emby to provide live tv and PVR functions to its client apps that support it. To set it up, you need ServerWMC installed on the machine that has WMC installed and configured. Then in Emby you need to install and configure its ServerWMC plugin. ServerWMC can be downloaded from here: http://www.serverwmc.com The ServerWMC plugin for Emby can be found in the Emby plugin catalog. A quick setup guide (courtesy of mediaputer) can be found

    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. Fir

    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?

    Hauppauge HD PVR

    Hello, I recently configured Emby to use WinTV using my Hauppauge HD PVR. Everything works great! One thing I noticed is that if I close Emby while streaming Live TV, WinTV doesn't seem to release the HD PVR and I need to restart the WinTV service to get it working again. If I use the back button, everything works perfectly. This issue might only apply to PVR devices from Hauppauge because they work a little differently than a traiditional tuner. This would apply to HD PVR, Collossus, & HD PVR II. Thanks, Jason
  9. Hi all, I have read that Emby supports Hauppauge tuners, but my HVR-930C UDB device is not seen by Emby It works when Hauppauge's own WinTV program tries to access it. What am I doing wrong (WinTV is not running when scanning for devices with Emby). When selecting Hauppauge, and click "Detect my devices", it finds a HD Homerun I have on my LAN. Hope someone can help.
  10. I understand that searching the program guide is a new feature in development builds. In addition to searching for specific programs, it would also be nice to search for channels by their name. For example, if the user searches for "ESPN" it should return currently airing programs on any channel that contains "ESPN" in the name. From that point on, the user experience would be the same as if they had searched for those programs directly. Implementing it shouldn't take much effort. Another nice feature would be the ability to locate the program on the grid (not sure if this is alread

    TV Tuner m3u

    Hello Emby Team, i want to use the build in live tv / tv tuner /m3u to play the live channels of this list: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/free-greek-iptv/greek-iptv/master/android.m3u i use the url method, i tried the m3u file method too but it didn't work either. execute read and write access was given. Basicaly for the test emby-server had root access. I works just fine with the iptv plug-in :S any idea ? Best Regards Rafael
  12. Running Android TV Beta on NVIDIA SHIELD TV (gigabit wired to main switch) and Emby Server Beta. HDHomeRun EXTEND set to mobile profile. https://youtu.be/jLw3J2R-Ld8 Four main areas of concern which the video above shows: 1) 0:04-0:15 the long time (~11 seconds) it takes to tune to a channel. 2) 0:20-0:25 the initial pause (~5 seconds) that is observed not long after beginning play. This has happened since I can remember using Emby. 3) 0:29-0:33 the spontaneous pixilation. 4) 0:41-0:44 the spontaneous pauses. I timed them exceeding 30 seconds in length at times. I tried changi
  13. Hi all, I have been using the Emby DVR with Schedules Direct listings for a few weeks now. All has been working well until I found a series I had set to record appears not to be scheduling or recording new episodes. Is there a log I can check to determine why the new episodes are not recording? As far as the UI goes, I can see the series recording icon in next weeks listing and the episode is definitely new but here is no icon indicating the episode itself will record, nothing in the Scheduled list and nothing in the Series scheduled list. The episodes from previous weeks did record co

    Xbox One question

    I am using the original XBOX One with Emby theater, and I would like to know if it is normal for Emby to Transcode live tv feeds. I use a HD Homerun Prime as my TV source in Emby Server. Thanks.
  15. Just wondering if this is normal or is this something not yet implemented where live tv auto grabs the fanart for things that are currently on? See attached image
  16. Following on @@Luke's response in a separate thread; https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/60539-live-tv-works-in-emby-in-chrome-but-not-emby-theater/?p=596345 I was watching a live TV channel last night for about 4 hours via the Android TV app when suddenly the stream stopped/crashed and the Emby app flipped back to the EPG. Can this happen if the stream just stopped from the provider, or could this be a server issue perhaps? I enabled Auto-loop per a suggestion from @@Luke and the viewing has been flawless since then, until this issue last night. Immediately I tried to

    Can't Play Live TV Channel

    When I attempt to play a Live TV channel, I get the loading circle go around continuously and nothing plays. The channels are all on my HD Homerun which are not working. In troubleshooting I have updated the HD Homerun to the latest firmware and I have confirmed that other application can use the turner. I have also rebooted both HD Homerun and Emby server as well as verified the correct DeviceAuth is being used by Emby for the tuner. This has been happening for about two weeks now. Here is the error I found in the log... 2018-03-17 13:05:56.597 Info HttpServer: HTTP POST http://localhos
  18. After choosing Live TV within Emby and choosing a station, the first time the TV-station information bar is NOT shown. If you go back to the main menu of Emby en re-choose Live TV, the TV station information bar is shown correctly.....: Thus: This only happend the first time, the TV-station information bar (of how is it called) is not appearing.... after a refresh of re-entering Live-TV, the bar is shown correctly... this happend in the webbased Emby with all three browsers: Chrome, IE and Edge. Details: I'm using the beta-version: on a Windows Server 2016 DC/16GB RAM/50
  19. Currently, if you watch an in progress recording, reach the point to where it’s live, and then you exit out of the recording, it will be considered as watched. Would it be possible to only set as watched when you reach the in progress program’s end time, rather than the end of what’s currently recorded? That way, you can come back to a recording you’ve only had the chance to watch the first 15 minutes of, and resume right where you left off. Not only that, but if you can show the proper duration of the show in the player, you would be able to tell how far along a show has been recorded
  20. What happened to the Live TV DVR function in the last server release? The folders in the TV library are now named TV show (2018) instead of TV Show, so now I have new series recordings split across two folders. I can recombine them if this is the naming convention going forward, not a huge deal, but it did cause some confusion. A bigger problem is the shows are no longer remuxed to MKV container on the fly, and I no longer am able to find the configuration for this feature in Emby Server. Was the feature removed? If so, why? I thought MKV was preferred to TS for use in these applicati
  21. I am currently using Emby's Live TV features with an m3u playlist. There are a lot of channels, so finding a specific channel to watch isn't the most intuitive thing. Also, if you want to look at the guide for a specific channel, you have to manually find it. I believe a simple channel search would go a long way to improve the experience. Live TV is missing a couple crucial features, but adding channel search would be a step in the right directions as the web interface (and most apps) doesn't seem to have any Live TV search or sort functionality at all. EDIT: I just found out you ca

    Multiple Devices Live TV

    Ok, I have seen other topic similar or the same but the answers have been rather short. Here is the situation multiple devices (like 10 devices) multiple users if one user plays a liveTV channel the other user gets bumped and vice versa. I have not made it past 2 users yet without one or the other getting bumped so the reality is only one user at a time it seems. I have seen one response where the moderator suggested selecting more streams when setting up the m3u tuner however the deafultis 0 which the server indicates as unlimited streams which is what I have set. Is there so

    Moving "On Now" down the list

    I have setup Live TV and added an XML scheduler and that is working well. Now that I have this enabled, "On Now" is at the top of my listing in the two apps that I use. In both the web player and on my Shield boxes. I don't watch live TV very often and the images never have cover art so now my main landing screen looks meh. I looked in the apps and I don't see an option to hide the live TV section or move is down so it's not at the top of the home screen. Is there a way to move the live TV section down so I don't see it first in the home screen of my apps?
  24. I noticed Emby is not HW transcoding on my machine anymore. I'm certain it has used hardware to transcode in the past, and pretty sure it was as recently as a couple weeks ago. Now when I play media, I am seeing high CPU utilization from ffmpeg, and 0% GPU utilization. I have an i7-7700, and 2 streams is too much for it to even handle. Any ideas on why it isn't using HW? I checked to make sure HW encoding is enabled in the server settings, and checked the log and it appears that quicksync (libmfx) is enabled in the ffmpeg config (though to TBH I'm not the most experienced with ffmpeg and w
  25. I would like to suggest a new feature, or to get some insight on how to achieve something similar if possible already. I schedule a few series, and would like to only sync sone of them selectively and automatically to individual targets. The only thing I found so far it's the ability to sync ALL new content, or individual show only when they complete recording. Ideally, I wish I could schedule a new series recording and decide upfront which subscribers will get synchronized, and at what quality. I also liked for tagging a show so it would be sent to a different category which will be s
