    Live TV M3u stops after 30 seconds

    hi, i recently moved to Emby from Plex and one thing that attracted me was the ability to add m3u links or file without the need of an additional software. so i signed up to premiere and it loaded the file perfectly. but when i play a channel, it lasts 30 seconds and it stops and i am not sure what is going on. when i use the same m3u file on vlc or any iptv player, it works perfect. searched through the forum and was adviced to tick something on auto loop but i cannot find that option. any help please? cheers Logs.txt
  3. Hi! I've been running a Dockerized Emby server based on the official Docker image (currently at v4.2.1.0), to be accessed from Roku boxes I have laying about the house, using the BETA Roku app. I also have a TVHeadEnd deployment which is fully functional, which also renders all streams as MPEG-TS container with MPEG2 video and AC3 audio. The Emby server is configured to access TVH using the Emby TVHeadEnd plugin (v1.4.4.0). This has worked flawlessly for months, but now I've noticed that Emby is for some reason transcoding from MPEG2 to H264. While this isn't costing too much, it's not

    Live Tv Choose Channel with trackpad get Oops

    When choosing a channel to watch we are getting this error when pressing the trackpad on the channel (which normally takes one to the channel/program info where you can choose channel as a favorite). Oops. Document Not Found on Stack. Maximum call stack size exceeded. We can get around this by pressing the play button instead. Also, while here, and related to the panel. The program schedules do not update when one presses the menu button to go back. This applies to both the favorite screen above (if that works [back once]) and to the channel listing [back twice]. Then if one presses

    Playback Continuously Looping

    Happens with live TV or playback of movies/shows. It'll play for about 15 seconds and then skip back 15 seconds and repeat that. ffmpeg-directstream-8fe9f110-beb7-4d7c-af02-164bd2952ba1_1.txt embyserver.txt
  6. Currently when I'm playing back a live recording on the Roku, I seem to only be able to seek as far as Emby has transcoded in the background. This can be frustrating if I want to seek through the first half-hour or hour of a recording. Would it be possible to change the way Emby handles seeking in ongoing recordings such that it's possible to seek to the middle of the recording and then begin transcoding from there? Thanks!
  7. I am STRICTLY interested in LiveTV/DVR feature/functionality so all my comments/questions are restricted to that context. I'm ready to test EMBY with the intent to migrate from PLEX. I understand I need a Premiere membership for this feature. Is there a FREE trial pass????? If not and I purchase a monthly and decide to move forward purchasing an EMBY Lifetime, does the monthly cost at all get prorated in the Lifetime cost? Can I set up EMBY on the same server as my current PLEX setup? I currently have 2 Hauppauge Quad PCI cards on an i7-4770 with 8Gb memory and plenty of disk space. Is
  8. Hi, in LiveTV Section of Emby -> Submenu "Zeitplan" (german -> schedules) the TV Channel logos are shown in wrong aspect ratio (logos are stretched) I attached a screenshot showning the "prob" In the section "Serie" the aspect ratio is shown correct (look at second screenshot) I know this is only a visual bug but would be nice if it could be fixed ;-) thx

    Transcoding per user

    So, I have about 20 users but provide Live TV to only 2 of them. In order to provide a smooth playback with Live TV I was advised to set a max playback bandwidth below 20 Mbps, and ok, it works smooth so far. But now, all my users have downgraded video quality which forces the transcoding while watching movies or series with "media bitrate exceed limit" info. How can I set an automatic media quality for local network for all users and limited quality (to 8-10 Mbps) to just those that use Live TV? I believe that could limit the necessity of transcoding.

    LiveTV Loading

    Been using Plex and trying Emby because of Plex having buffering issues on my 4K TCL Roku TV. Running via hard wired ethernet. Emby on the Roku TV. In the middle of watching Live TV it will 'randomly' show a Loading bar screen. I have to hit back and hit ok in the guide to get back to it and it will start playing again. Using an HD Homerun and cable card. My server has an older graphics card so the stats for geeks shows its not using hardware acceleration and that its always an incompatible container. I have two ffmpeg logs around the same time, I dont know which ffmpeg log captured it
  11. Hi *, the following problem seems not to be a general problem of the LG app, I have 3 LG TVs and one is displaying the guide correctly while the other two do not The attached screen is taken from my LG OLED65C7... it seems it tries to display to many rows so the current selected show that is shown at the bottom of the epg is overwritten by the epg grid. On the TV in my bedroom (LG 43UK6300LLB) it is displayed correctly. don't know if this behavior is already known to you ;-) greetz

    Pixelation - Picture breakup

    I have Emby server (latest prod version) running on a Synology DS218+ NAS. Emby client (latest prod version) running on NVidia Shield 16Gb. HD Homerun, quad tuner. All hung together on a VLAN via a managed hub. Today my picture breaks up continually, hangs, is unwatchable. Yet if I load the HD Homerun app on the Shield, all channels play just fine. HD Homerun reports tuner status as: Signal Strength: 87% Signal Quality 82% Symbol Quality 100% So just how strong does the signal need to be for Emby to be happy ??
  13. Hello Everyone, My Objective: I want to experience LiveTV using m3u playlist. I found a .ts address and created a playlist with single channel as below. #EXTM3U #EXTINF:-1,MUTE_TV http://www.q7t1.com:...bk9/bk9/4179.ts My Experience: I successfully added the m3u playlist, channel shows up and when i play it, it plays and stops after 19 seconds. If i play it again same thing happens, it plays for another 19 seconds and then stops. I am not sure what is going on. I am new to Emby and LiveTV, not a techy guy. I am very grateful for these features in emby. Emby server info: I
  14. Hello. Currently what would be the cheapest hardware I can use to install emby server? The plan is just to connect emby with HDHomeRun and be able to watch live TV from outside home wifi. HDHomeRun doesn't support it natively, so it requires Plex or Emby. Plex requires PlexPass (paid) to broadcast live TV and emby does that for free via emby server. Any help is appreciated! Thank you.
  15. Good morning everybody, I have a very odd problem with my Emby installation. LiveTV works, DVR does not, Yes, I DO have Lifetime Premiere membership! Setup: AVM Fritzbox 6490 from Vodafone Germany with DVB-C officially enabled. Emby is running as an application (not service) in an account with admin rights on a Windows 10 (November 2017 Version) Pro machine. M3U Playlists created and verified - work perfect with VLC. I have all the channels in the guide. I have subscribed to guide data. Live TV works as it should. (Playback in Emby is sometimes pixelated as if sometimes dropo

    LiveTV + Tv-mosaic server

    Hi all, First sorry for my poor english, but after many try and test, here is is a little howto : 1/Install Tvmosaic server 2/configure your iptv provider 3/In visiblity remove all you dont want HD/SD/4K.... 4/ If you buy TV mosaic plus configure your epg access and thats all right for tvmosaic server On Emby : Live TV: Source TV M3U Tuner -> http://ServerIP:9270/mobile/?command=get_playlist_m3u or you can tweak the url : http://<tvmosaic server address>:9270/mobile/?command=get_playlist_m3u&client=<client id string>&sort=<name/number>
  18. Hello, I'm having sound quality issues on the ShieldTV. I can't really pin point the issue. The only constant factor is that it occurs on Live tv where the audio is MP2 format. I have set all the options of emby to pass-trough and my receivers switches to different sound modes as they are applicable. But live tv sounds like a low quality MP3, very metalic and flat.
  19. I really like the option that I can list my Favourite channels in the Live TV Guide first. However, on the Home Screen the "On Now" does not respect this preference, and there is no other setting than (as suggested in a different post) to manually remove the non-favoured channels from EPG. This is obviously not an option and goes against the logic of EPG as such. I use manually generated xmltv file for EPG from webgrabplus. Would it be please possible to provide an option for On Now to sort the favourites first?

    Recordings failing after a few minutes

    Hi there, I have seen another post about this, which may be related. I have had a few instances since the upgrade to Emby v. 4, but since I have only been using Emby Live TV consistently for a few months, I am not certain that the upgrade is a factor. In instances prior to the one shown in the attached logs, one show will fail after 2 - 9 minutes. I did not have time to gather the logs for the earlier instances of this issue. In this instance, two recordings were happening at the same time and stopped at the same time. I have provided logs from the time the issue started to the end of
  21. So excited to have finally got my HDHomerun Connect Quattro for UK Free to Air TV installed and running with Emby Server v4.0.2. Its all working sort of... I'm on 1gb home network and via Emby Client in browser I play Live TV and stutters badly. I have it set to Auto to ensure streaming best could be, however... As you can see from above, the dashboard is show Emby is transcoding the Live TV footage from MPEG2 to H.264 and I cant seem to find a way to stop it doing and just use Direct Play. Any ideas / help appreciated ?
  22. Hi! I've finally got my DVR working well enough that I'm happy with it, though still have a few kinks to work out. Two of such kinks are as follows: 1) Is there any way to hide the "TVHeadend Recordings" section? Since the recordings are visible within the LiveTV section's Recordings area, this seems kind of redundant. 2) Once I start recording a program, I can't stop the recording via the WebUI or the Roku Beta app (i.e. playback via web, hit record, and now I can't stop the recording). Can this be fixed? Otherwise, everything seems to be working fine! Thanks!
  23. I have a Ubuntu Emby set up with LiveTV via TVHeadEnd with a Hauppauge QuadHD TV Tuner. For the most part, it worst really well, but this past weekend, I was helping my dad set up some Rokus at his house-- One new Roku Premiere+ and one older model. Both are capable of streaming the LiveTV, but when one Roku attempts to stream a channel, and the other Roku tries to stream another channel, it will supposedly change the channel on the first Roku. Is there some limitation to one LiveTV steam per account? I was going through the settings and I didn't see any way to unrestrict it if that is
  24. 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 Pre
  25. I'm setting up Emby for the first time (Plex's new Roku app spurred me to do it) and I'm trying to set up an account on Schedules Direct but te "Software You Use" section doesn't list Emby, and it won't let me complete an account setup without choosing my application. I saw a post about eventually moving away from Schedules Direct to Gracenote but not sure if that applies to the free version of the server? Can I select any of these apps and have it work with Emby. Thanks! http://www.schedulesdirect.org/approvedsoftware
