  1. Hi Feel free to mark as duplicate if you think this is too closely related to the other threads on pooling channels. My suggestion for doing has different ultimate goals to the other ones I've found: - Suggestion to pool duplicate iPTV or DVB, DVC, DVT sources so they only show up as a single channel - Each "single" channel could have multiple sources siting in behind - Channel service/sources can be set in preference/priority - When you tune/play the channel you want if it hangs or buffers then tuner automatically failbacks to the next source/service until it finds a stable one to play Most iPTV providers are providing multiple back ups in case a channel goes down or buffers. This suggestion allows us to use the back ups without having to manually edit the XML File. TV Headend has this type of feature built in already so it can be done

    Recording Stops After Random Times

    So, the title sums it up for the majority of people. I'll set a show to tape, it will cut out at random times. Unsure why. And I am left with 10 second recordings, 2 minute recordings, 34 minute records, get it? What would cause this? Network is fine, I think.
  3. Hi Guys I have a live TV setup with a homerunHD. All working really well etc. It is recording into my TV and Movies folders as needed and creating the season structure as required too. All perfect. I have seen some performance issues on some of the clients when playing back something that is currently recording. My theory is this is due to poor random read and write from the library as that is stored on a NAS. I would like to have the emby server (ubuntu) store currently recording things onto itself (and its much faster SSD's) then when it is finished, move it into the library. I can see I could just set the live TV to go somewhere local and run a copy script after it has finished, but am unsure how to get this to preserve the name and structure. I also think if I set it to record somewhere else these will show up as separate libraries, or worse, something recording won't show up at all until it has finished? I keep seeing mentions of an auto organise feature, but not seeing this in my install and it looks like it might not be there any more? Thanks for any help Craig Edit: Forgot to say, mostly just looking for advice in how to set this up, assuming it is possible. So close to getting my ideal setup, just needs this last bit. Thanks
  4. Hey, I'm trying to convert to Emby Live TV (away from my rip off cable provider) but I'm having an issue with recording. When I record a program and come back hours later to watch it, sometimes it has only recorded 2,3,10,15, etc, minutes of the show. I have made sure to try it without recording or watching anything else as I think my IPTV provider only supplies one connection. Also, sometimes I am watching a channel and Emby randomly drops out and returns back to the TV guide. I don't know if this is an error on the provider's end, a bug with the app on my Android TV, or a transcoding/server error. Any help is appreciated, thanks!
  5. So while adding a series I happened to catch the "Upcoming On TV" heading which somehow I never noticed before. I was thinking maybe there could be a list of episodes or the like provided by one of the supported metadata providers and you could tick an episode as "wanted" and going forward in the future Emby would periodically check to see if said episode is going to air and set it to record.

    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 here: http://mediaputer.com/guides/2014/06/stream-live-tv-media-browser-serverwmc/ Please post bugs, questions, and new feature requests to this sub-forum.
  7. I'm sure like many of the users here I like to tinker, I have a wide range of both software and hardware that I use to interface with my emby. I primarily use Kodi when in-house with the emby for kodi add-on, since I use kodi primarily I use the silicondust PVR system. When I am remote at work, on mobile, my projector, vacation etc. I use emby. Since I am mobile 14+ hours of the day I configure the DVR on emby when out and via the silicondust DVR add-on within kodi when home. With that being said is it possible for emby to read the silicondust dvr files metadata and use that within the [Recordings] of emby? I have attached a sample of how emby reads the dvr files from my hdhomerun as an example. for some reason all recordings are being recognized as season of the witch. please let me know if there are any questions, files, etc that I can provide to assist with this if you feel it is something that can be added I am happy to provide. thank you, bry
  8. Hi, I missed a movie on TV recently, and it's likely to be re-run at some point. However, I can "only" search for keywords in current tv guide. It could be cool if I could create a "wish list", which Emby scanned for when updating guide info. Then there could be a push message, pop-up, email, icon, or other way of notifying the user that a keyword on his/her search list has come up. Thanks - Jennice
  9. I am new to emby so I apologize if this has been discussed. I could not find a post that addresses my question. So far emby is great for organizing my media. What would push me over the top to get a lifetime subscription would be the ability to integrate an IPTV service (such as Set TV) with emby along with the ability to record the live streams to watch later. Is this possible? And if so could you describe your setup. Also, what IPTV service are you guys using and like? This is for a lakehouse where my internet connection is ~10mps download and there is no faster package available. Thank you in advance.

    Theater playback buffer size

    Hi all, Is there an option to set playback buffer size in Emby Theater (or in server)? It seems to stream very direct with low delay in transcoding. But when there is a hick-up in transmit data, the Theater app tends to freeze and needs re-start. I can't use the back arrow to click away from the frozen picture. Is there a way to improve "immunity" to data hick-up's by changing playback buffer, or other means? I don't mind if there is a delay in start-up of a strem. I haven't proven it scienficically, but it appears that playback is smoother if I start a stream, hit pause (to let it build up buffer for some seconds), and then resume playback. But Theater player for Windows can get really upset when stream stutters. My android app doesn't crash. It freezes, and then resumes after a bit. I suppose something similar can be made in a Windows player program? Just not sure if it's server- or client side, or both which need adjustment. Other than that, a cool set of server / client SW.
  11. In case it helps any one else, i been learning how to make get_iplayer integrate with Emby. The commands that worked for me were get_iplayer --prefs-add --file-prefix="<nameshort><-senum><-episodeshort>" --output "D:\AutoOrganise" "set preferences to put output into a location with filename that Emby auto organise can detect and move" get_iplayer --pvr-add=The_Graham_Norton_Show "The Graham Norton Show" --output "D:\AutoOrganise" --file-prefix="<nameshort><-senum><-episodeshort>" add a show to the get_iplayer pvr function (setting preferences twice is redundant/not required, unless you want different preferences for the pvr function) get_iplayer --pvr schedule this command to run periodically,so as to suck down any episodes as they become available, Emby auto organise will do the rest. The filenaming options of get_iplayer are probably flexible enough to put the the file in the correct location on the filesystem itself (remove need for auto organise), but i havent worked that bit out yet. further reading get_iplayer command reference hope it helps. perhaps someone could write a plugin to control this all from Emby :-)
  12. Hi all, I finally got a DLNA compatible HDHomeRun (an Extend, for OTA), so now I want to experiment with Emby doing some recordings. Up to this point I've used WMC to do the recordings (using my older model HDHRs). So, I added my tuner in the server Live TV Setup, got a Schedules Direct account set up and set in the server... now what? Is there a guide for setup? My main motivation, other than moving gradually away from WMC, is to use technology other than WMC to do the recording. I have always gotten random glitches in my recordings with WMC that I don't see on those same tuners when watching live. So, what are the next steps to getting this going? I haven't yet found a guide. Sorry if I missed something obvious. Thanks Marc

    Installed Plugin. Now what?

    I installed the plug in but nothing's changed on Emby and there is no PVR. Do I need to also install NextPVR on my machine and configure it? Is there a Wiki someplace?
