    Slow channel changing

    Hi, I recently purchased a lifetime Emby Premiere license to try Live TV with both of my HDHomeRun Prime tuners. I saw that Emby advertised fast channel changing with a decent guide and the possibility of viewing TV remotely, so I thought this would be a good solution for my needs. I'm running Emby on a Xeon E5-2698V4 with 16GB of RAM, because I wanted fast transcoding times. My client is an Nvidia Shield TV, but I also tested channel changing on the server itself and both are slow. In the beginning it was taking 45 seconds or more to change a channel on my local 1GB network, which was disappointing. I turned on Intel Quicksync and this dropped the channel changing time from 45-65 seconds down to 15-18. If I enable direct play, then it drops down to 10-15 seconds. When I use other direct play clients, like HDHomeRun or Live Channels, the time is only 1-2 seconds. Everything else I've tested in Emby seems great, but if I can't drop the Live TV channel changing time to 1-2 seconds similar to other Android TV clients (direct, I don't expect transcoding to be this fast), then this product will not be useful for me. I also think that other potential customers should be made aware of this problem prior to purchase. If you're advertising fast channel changing, then this is what people will expect when they purchase the product. After searching on this forum, it looks like this may be the normal performance of Emby for Live TV. If anyone knows of a way to improve channel changing times, please let me know.
  2. i would like assigned at my user only 2 channel from my list. Example http://drive.google.com/open?id=1VKZ74-GN0ES8JDyomMffntT8W-GDLt9x if have 2 tuner with same channel i would like see only one channel and when watching one channel if the fist tuner is busy automatich switch to secondo tuner. Example tuner1 : - Channel 1 - Channel 2 tuner2 : - Channel 1 - Channel 2 In this moment i see channel 1, channel 1, channel 2, channel 2. I would like see channel 1, channel 2 thanks

    IChannel - searchable?

    Hi all, just a general question regarding implementing a channel. I've implemented the channel using IChannel, and it works great. I'd like to know if it were possible to include the Channel in the Emby Search engine. I found the ISearchableChannel interface, however I've noticed it doesn't implement any functions. I figured maybe it was ISupportsMediaProbe, that also doesn't implement anything. If anyone has experience with Channel development and could shed some light that'd be great. I basically want it searchable, so the user types something into the search box, and Emby queries my Channel (ie, a Search function within IChannel) Maybe @chef has had some experience with this one. Thankyou so much

    Live TV guide channel display?

    Would it be possible to display the channel alongside (underneath, on top?) the channel logo artwork? It is sooooooo difficult to try to decipher these tiny icons, which usually don't have any channel number info. While logos may have some value, and are pretty, the channel number is indispensable while attempting to scroll through what could be hundreds of possibilities. I understand screen real estate is severely limited, but leaving the channel number out just isn't a good UI decision. Something has to give, even if it means fewer lines of guide per screen. We need the channel number!!

    Channel Access

    I was looking at this post https://emby.media/community/index.php?/blog/1/entry-177-manage-your-home-with-emby-users/ And noticed that not only am I missing the "Content Access" section on my user management panel. I am missing "Channel Access" Is this something that is just being posted as a preview for a future release? Channel Access restrictions would be very useful as I have multiple users and only 3 tuners and am looking to restrict specific users to specific live tv channel access in order to keep necessary tuners available and concentrate other users towards a single tuner. I've posted a feature request for this at some point before, but at the time the only solution was to use parental controls to restrict channel access. But I am looking for something more specific.

    Channels not in order

    Just trying out a Roku Ultra. The channels in the Guide are not in number order....how fix that? see 1st pic Also, how do u get it to look like Emby Theater does and its full screen On Now page < see 2nd pic
  7. Hi there, I have started looking at Emby's plugin API. I have two Plex Plugins I would like to convert for Emby. They are both channel plugins. I was trying out the Channel plugin API and saw the ChannelFolderType option. However, as I found out it does not have an effect. After searching through the source code and running it under a debugger, I found the following line, that prevents this from working: https://github.com/MediaBrowser/Emby.Common/blob/6ef8705ed609666555894c698dfc140fd8314831/MediaBrowser.Controller/Entities/BaseItem.cs#L2047-L2055 Is there a reason, the line about ChannelFolderItem couldn't be removed? Or return the normal type, when e.g. another option on the ChannelItemInfo is set? I have tried removing the check for the channel, and it seems to work fine and display the series as it normally would with a real series. I think allowing ChannelFolderType to work correctly, would greatly improve the channel plugins. Kind regards, Leo

    Live TV Channel Numbers in Guide

    Was wondering if there was a way to enable the channel numbers in the Live TV Channel guide on android? I have a lot of channels, searching them hangs up the server and scrolling through them I can easily get lost as to where I am in the lineup.

    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.

    A Problem Channel - IPTV

    Hello, I have one problem channel when I try to play it over an Emby Connect connection. It works fine on my LAN. I've tried multiple external connections and no matter how fast, this one channel stutters. I've also try lowering the resolution to the minimum and it makes no diff. I can send the M3U for this channel over PM if you need it. I have attached the FFMPEG log. Thanks, Jason FFMPEG.txt
  11. Hello, This is the first time I am making a request, I hope to have answers and I hope that my requests will succeed. I am French and I use Google Traduction because I am not good enough in English to make my requests as well as possible. I would leave in French too, for other French people who use Emby like me. First of all, I am very happy with Emby, it works really well. 1) On Emby Web App and Emby App (Windows and others) Is it possible to embed logos on thumbnails of movies like 3D, HD, SD, Dolby Surround / DTS and more ... And, is it possible to display them in the sheets of films because text is not easily visible to my users. It would take different Dolby logos and the same for DTS. It would be SD logos, HD 720p, HD 1080p, 3D, AAC. Maybe also MKV, AVI, MP4 ... 2) On Emby Server, it would be nice to be able to automatically transcode an IPTV channel (With a check box for the choice to do it or not in the IPTV options) so that two people can watch the same TV channel (Only for the same channel TV) Because it happens that friends want to watch at the same time the same chain and it is not possible, they are thrown each other when they watch the TV channel. 3) Still on Emby Server and always on IPTV, is it possible to do that if the quota of spectators is reached and the person who wants to watch the TV does not want to watch the transcoded TV channel (See point # 2) Then it will be ejected directly with a message that the quota is reached. I saw that it was in place but that it did not work if we capped the continuous demand of flow. It would be enough just to associate the users with the quota and if a person tries to connect, it will be blocked before the stream is launched. (Because currently, one can watch the stream, but if the other tries, it recovers the stream, which disconnects this first then it is disconnected later because the first has a new request for the flow (automatic by the option in the configuration) This is very annoying in case we want to record a program or someone comes to watch a TV channel when someone else is already watching) 4) Is it possible to include the authorization of an IPTV m3u list that has only one user? To be able to indicate the user (or users) allowed to watch a specific list of TV channels and be able to do the same for other M3u lists, so that no one can "walk" on it. Example: user 1, user 2 and user 3 have the right to access the TV on the first m3u list. user 4 has the right to access the TV on the second m3u list. user 5 and user 6 have the right of access to the third list m3u. In addition, is it possible to make lists of user channels 4, 5 and 6 not visible to users 1, 2 and 3? And conversely. 5) On IPTV always, in another case, is it possible to do that the chains can not be displayed in duplicate in the list if they include the same name, the same number of chains TV, the same information EXTINF but that they can be gathered on a single TV channel in the IPTV section with why not, the number of streams available (Like the number of episodes of a TV series or the number of films in a collection) Obviously, it would be good to to be able to reduce the number of streams available (in relation to the number of flows allowed by the lists and the number of people who are using the streams.) Therefore, 1 authorized stream should be removed from all available channels in relation to the M3U list obviously, because if we have chains of a m3u list proposing a TV channel that the other lists M3U do not propose, it will have to include the number of flows available only for it alone. 6) For the Emby wikipedia or on the discussion board, it would be nice also to be able to detail how to make a correct M3U list for Emby. I find a lot of messages everywhere but nothing that is concrete and fixed. And not being very good at English, I'm having a hard time understanding everything. This is valid for an anglist who practices IPTV on Emby and would like to do this tutorial. A charitable soul? Thank you for reading me and kindly answer me. And thank you again if you ever decide that my requests are not stupid, or even that they are very useful and put in place at the earliest. (For logos, I do not know if they need permissions, especially for Dolby and DTS but you can otherwise suggest the possibility to do it, and with your custom logos [simple, whatever] but editable for those who want them original) _______________________________________________________________________________________ Bonjour, C'est la première fois que je fais une requête, j'espère avoir des réponses et j'espère que mes requètes aboutiront . Je suis français et j'utilise Google Traduction car je ne suis pas assez bon en anglais pour formuler mes demandes le mieux possible. Je laisserais en français aussi, pour les autres français qui utilisent Emby comme moi. Tout d'abord, je suis très heureux d'Emby, il fonctionne vraiment bien. 1) Sur Emby Web App et Emby App (Windows et autres) Est-il possible d'intégrer des logos sur les miniatures des films comme 3D , HD, SD, Dolby Surround/DTS et plus... Et , est-il possible de les afficher dans les fiches des films car en texte ce n'est pas facilement visible pour mes utilisateurs. Il faudrait des logos des différents Dolby et pareil pour DTS. Il faudrait les logos SD, HD 720p , HD 1080p , 3D, AAC . Peut-être aussi MKV, AVI, MP4 ... 2) Sur Emby Server, ce serait bien de pouvoir transcoder automatiquement une chaine IPTV (Avec une case à cocher pour le choix de le faire ou non dans les options IPTV) de sorte que deux personnes puissent regarder la même chaine TV (Seulement donc pour la même chaine TV) Car il arrive que des amis veulent regarder en même temps la même chaine et celà n'est pas possible , ils se font jeter mutuellement quand ils visionnent la chaine TV. 3) Toujours sur Emby Serveur et toujours sur IPTV , est-il possible de faire que si le quota de spectateurs est atteint et que la personne qui veut regarder la TV ne veut pas regarder la chaine TV transcodée (Voir point N°2) Alors elle se fera éjecté directement avec un message comme quoi le quota est atteint. J'ai vu que c'était en place mais que ca ne fonctionnait pas si on cochait la demande continue de flux. Il suffirait juste d'associer les utilisateurs au quota et que si une personne essaie de se connecter, elle se fera bloquer avant que le flux soit lancé. (Car actuellement , l'un peut regarder le flux, mais si l'autre essaie, il récupère le flux, ce qui fait déconnecter ce premier puis ce dernier se fait déconnecter ensuite car le premier a une nouvelle demande du flux (automatique par l'option dans la configuration ) C'est très génant au cas ou on l'ont veut enregistrer un programme ou que quelqu'un vient pour regarder une chaine TV quand quelqu'un d'autre regarde déjà) 4) Est-il possible d'inclure l'autorisation d'une liste IPTV m3u qu'a un seul utilisateur ? De pouvoir indiquer l'utilisateur (ou les utilisateurs) autorisé à regarder une liste spécifique de chaines TV et pouvoir faire la même chose pour d'autres listes M3u, de sorte que personne ne puisse se "marcher" dessus . Exemple : user 1 , user 2 et user 3 ont le droit d'accès à la TV sur la première liste m3u . user 4 a le droit d'accès à la TV sur la deuxième liste m3u . user 5 et user 6 ont le droit d'accès à la troisième liste m3u . De plus, est-il possible de faire que les listes de chaines de user 4, 5 et 6 ne soient pas visible par les users 1, 2 et 3 ? Et inversement. 5) Sur IPTV toujours, dans un autre cas, est-il possible de faire que les chaines ne puissent s'afficher en double dans la liste si elles comportent le même nom , le même numéro de chaines TV , les mêmes infos EXTINF mais qu'elles puissent être rassemblées sur une seule chaine TV dans la section IPTV avec pourquoi pas , le nombre de flux disponible (Comme le nombre d'épisodes d'une série TV ou le nombre de films dans une collection) Evidemment , il serait bien de pouvoir réduire le nombre de flux disponible (par rapport aux nombres de flux autorisés par les listes et le nombre de personnes qui sont en train d'utiliser les flux. Du coup, il faudrait retiré 1 flux autorisé sur toutes les chaines disponible par rapport à la liste M3U évidemment. Car si on a des chaines d'une liste m3u proposant une chaine TV que les autres listes M3U ne proposent pas, elle devra comporter le nombre de flux disponible que pour elle seule. 6) Pour le wikipédia d'Emby ou sur le forum de discussion , Ce serait bien aussi de pouvoir détailler comment faire une liste M3U correcte pour Emby. je trouve plein de messages un peu partout ici mais rien qui est concret et fixe. Et n'étant pas très fort en Anglais, je galère un peu à tout comprendre. Ca, c'est valable pour un anglisciste qui pratique l'IPTV sur Emby et qui voudrait bien faire ce tutorial. Une âme charitable ? Merci de m'avoir lu et de bien vouloir me répondre . Et encore merci si jamais vous décidez que mes demandes ne sont pas bêtes , voir même qu'elles soient très utiles et mise en place au plus tôt. (Pour les logos , je ne sais pas s'ils faut des autorisations , surtout pour Dolby et DTS mais vous pouvez sinon proposez la possibilité de le faire , et avec vos logos personnalisé [simple, peu importe] mais modifiable pour ceux qui veulent les originaux)

    TV channel numbers

    Just wondering - is there any (easy) way to add channel numbers to tv channels. Have added some for a few IPTV channels provided by someone who wrote a collection of them, (all legally available) but non of them have a channel number assigned. If they don't have channel numbers, presumably they can't be accessed using a remote (not that I have one on the PC anyway) ?
  13. Hi there. Wondering if we can have a feature on the home page of the webapp of emby? Looking for an option to add Favorite Live TV Channels. Click on the channel would bring up the channel guid for that channel for the days. Thanks Monkeyslapper
  14. Well done! Damn ISP, block all the fun
  15. Is there anyway to change the channel numbers detected from HDHR in Emby built-in LiveTV? For example in my HDHR lineup channels are numbered starting from 5000 (don't know why exactly and couldn't find a way to change that on the HDHR itself either yet...). It seems that Emby built-in LiveTV is picking up the channel number from HDHR so again in Emby all channels numbers are starting from 5000. What I would like to do is to be able to manually change the channel number from 5067 to 1, or 5033 to 2, etc. I already checked metadata manager and there is a "Sort Title" field there that helps to sort the channel view order, but it doesn't modify the channel number so channel 5067 will be displayed first on the list, but the number will remain the same, 5067. I'm trying to match the channel numbers to the actual TV grid in my country were channels start from 1. Channel 1 being displayed as 5067 when on TV set is number 1 is kind of misleading. If you have any ideas on how to achieve this let me know. PS: I'm also using TVHeadend (OTA EPG support) and there it is as simple as changing the channel number to whatever I want.
  16. I would like to see like to see TV channel type functionality similar to cytube. Where you can create a 'TV station' playlist from videos in your library and people can join in to watch the same stuff that everyone else is watching. Like cytube it doesn't have to be 100% in sync. On the surface it seems pretty simple, keep track of the current video in the playlist and where it would be in relationship to the start time. When a client connects start the client at that spot. When the video is done start the next one. If we could get that it would be great. I looked through the developer api's and I got pretty lost on how you could even start something like this. So it might not be as simple as the description. I think this would be a very good feature especially for premiere members since no other streaming platform I have seen has this kind of functionality.
  17. Perhaps someone can help with this... I'm using WMC on Win 10, Serverwmc, Emby. Haupauge quad tuner. I just changed from ASTC to clear QAM cable. WBZ HD (channel 4.1 CBS boston) displays fine on WinTV8 and WMC, and the guide displays fine on WMC. Neither the channel nor the guide will display on Emby. Only this channel is affected. Any ideas? Thanks Bill
  18. Okay the goal of this little script was to remove unwanted TV channels, in my case this dealt with SD channels where I had an HD option available, or foreign language, shopping,..so on and so forth. #Include <Array.au3> #Include <File.au3> ; /////////////////////////////////////////// ; // Array Remove Channels ; /////////////////////////////////////////// Dim $aChannelsToRemove[1] = [0] $aFileList = _FileListToArray( @ScriptDir, 'Remove Channels *.txt' , 1 , True ) For $ii = 1 To $aFileList[0] Dim $aCurrentFileList _FileReadToArray( $aFileList[$ii] , $aCurrentFileList , 1 ) For $jj = 1 To $aCurrentFileList[0] If _ArraySearch( $aChannelsToRemove , $aCurrentFileList[$jj] , 1 ) = -1 Then _ArrayAdd( $aChannelsToRemove , Number( $aCurrentFileList[$jj] )) $aChannelsToRemove[0] += 1 EndIf Next Next _ArraySort ( $aChannelsToRemove , 0 , 1 ) ; /////////////////////////////////////////// ; // Process TV Tuners ; /////////////////////////////////////////// $aTunners = StringRegExp( BinaryToString( InetRead( 'http://ipv4-my.hdhomerun.com/discover' , 0 )) , '"BaseURL": "(.+?)"' , 3 ) For $aa = 0 To UBound( $aTunners ) - 1 $aActiveChannelList = _JsonTVChannelList( $aTunners[$aa] ) For $bb = 1 To $aChannelsToRemove[0] _ArraySearch( $aActiveChannelList , $aChannelsToRemove[$bb] , 1 , 0 , 0 ,0 , 1 , 0 ) If NOT @[member="Error"] Then _ToggleChannels( $aTunners[$aa] , 'disabled' , $aChannelsToRemove[$bb] ) Next Next Func _JsonTVChannelList( $URL ) $sBuffer = BinaryToString( InetRead( $URL & '/lineup.json' , 0 )) $sBuffer = StringMid( $sBuffer , 2 , StringLen( $sBuffer ) - 2 ) $aChannels = StringRegExp( $sBuffer , '{(.+?)}' , 3 ) Dim $aCurrentChannelList[UBound( $aChannels ) + 1][5] = [[UBound( $aChannels )]] For $ii = 0 To UBound( $aChannels ) - 1 $aCurrentChannel = StringSplit( $aChannels[$ii] , ',' ) $kk = 0 For $jj = 1 To $aCurrentChannel[0] $aCurrentElement = StringSplit( $aCurrentChannel[$jj] , '":"' , 1 ) If $aCurrentElement[0] = 2 AND StringInStr( 'GuideNumber|GuideName|VideoCodec|AudioCodec|URL' , StringReplace( $aCurrentElement[1] , '"' , '' )) <> 0 Then $aCurrentChannelList[$ii + 1][$kk] = StringReplace( $aCurrentElement[2] , '"' , '' ) $kk += 1 EndIf Next Next Return $aCurrentChannelList EndFunc Func _ToggleChannels( $URL , $Status , $Channel ) Switch $Status Case "disabled" $tgl = "x" Case "star" $tgl = "+" Case "unstar" $tgl = "-" EndSwitch InetRead( $URL & '/lineup.post?favorite=' & $tgl & $Channel ) EndFunc Save the above code as an .AU3 file...you of course need to have AutoIt installed for the script to work at all. Next you need to create one or more text files that list a channel number per line. Each file must be named as "Remove Channels *.txt" with the Asterisk being replaced with whatever you want. Each file must be saved next to the AutoIt script. Simply run the script and in a few seconds and it well be done. You can check your handy work by going to the following URL on your Network: http://my.hdhomerun.com/ Then clicking on the Channel links for each Tuner. Everything can be reversed by editing line 32...change 'disabled' to 'unstar' and run the script again. This has been tested on a HDHomeRun Prime, but should work with any other product made by SiliconDust.
  19. Is there a way to record the same series on 2 separate channels, but not on all channels? I am catching runs of The Big Bang Theory on a local Fox station have it set to One channel, but would like to record the new episodes from CBS, but it seems to be limited to one or the other or all channels Unless I schedule the new episodes individually. Thanks for reading and any help!
  20. Just got the 3.0.8100 update. Noted that the order of the guide channels is now out of order. Instead of starting at 2.1 I have 8 channels (random?) at the beginning starting with 640. Same issue in the Channels tab. Is this a bug? Is there a new way of reordering channels I am unaware of? Screenshots attached Thanks for reading and any help you can provide! Try this again with the screenshots
