wmichael3 posted a topic in LinuxI've looked at other postings of this type but don't see anything really exactly similar to this situation - Situation: Chromecast goes black (no image or sound) after pause/resume of Live TV (on NBC, ABC, CBS and Fox) The problem only appears on Live TV - much higher resolution/bitrate/bandwidth movies do not have the problem. Android controlling Chromecast Gen 3 that is wired, not wireless - using gigabit adapter. Playback set to auto. Stream is 720p Comcast via HD Homerun Prime. Stream runs as "Direct Streaming" in the Emby dashboard. No CPU issues on server or network bottlenecks. Network is wired gigabit ethernet. Server indicates 6-8Mbps network load. When the screen goes dark, Emby console indicates that playback continues. However, the play timer in the dashboard panel changes from elapsed time of the stream to "--:--:--" At this point I can't look at the log because it is open. I can see that ffmpeg is still an active process. Android app generally may or may not show connection to Chromecast, but Google Home shows that the Chromecast is still connected to Emby. To look at the log I must first use Google Home to stop the stream. When I do that the Chromecast images reappear on the screen without further intervention - the standard pretty scenery. The logs are attached. The stream started at about 2pm and the screen probably went black about 3:30pm and then I stopped it at 4:03pm. From the log the stream appears to have continued processing normally until I used Google Home to stop it. You can see me stopping it in the log. But there was a black screen a long time before then. When this happens we typically just restart the channel, but it is starting to get annoying. A restart always works perfectly. Have not seen this behavior with Netflix or Prime casting (or before moving to Emby when I used WMC against the same tuner on the same server and network) Full log files attached. Any thoughts? This happens regularly on a TV that is left on during the day and we've also seen it on a second TV with a 4K Chromecast. I've swapped the Chromecast and the ethernet adapter and the HDMI port. Nothing helps. ffmpeg-remux-705a89cd-012e-42b9-9941-6abe02ef7fbf_1.txt embyserver.txt
AndyBak posted a topic in Live TVI’m currently a long time user of Emby for WMC where I have a htpc running media centre as my main system for live TV (using an old internal Hauppauge card). I’ve been keen to move away from WMC and just have Emby as a single/complete media solution for some time. At the weekend I picked up a HDHomeRun CONNECT box, got this up and running on the network with it’s native app within minutes and was impressed with its performance. I can launch the app either on my WMC or mac laptop and live TV starts playing in less than a second. Next I configured it with Emby, the server saw the device without issue and I created an account with Schedules Direct. Everything seems to work but performance is poor, when I select a channel either within the web app on laptop or through Emby for WMC on htpc it takes approx 8 seconds for a channel to start playing. So the question I have is whats up? Why is there such a difference between the native apps provided with the HDHomeRun device and Emby?
